and am running a netgear super wireless ADSL router DG834GT for my wireless broadband, the signal in the opposite end of the house is pretty awful so have decided to get a Netgear 54 Mbps Wireless Access Point WG602 and aam going to place it in that blask spot wired via home plug ethernet plugs.

now my issue is that do intially set up the wireless access point the access point is supposed to be connected directly with the pc via the ethernet cable and then configured somehow. the problem is that when i do this i have to take out my working wired adsl modem to replace it with this one and when i try and log on to the click here page to configure it like the instructions suggest, i cannot do so
assumingly becasue it has no actual internet connection.

i am lost please please please can some one help me..


thanks in advance

I assume that the IP address you need to access is and not

Because you have disconnected the PC from your DG834GT router, there is no longer a DHCP server to give your PC's network adapter an IP address. You will therefore need temporarily to give the network adapter a fixed IP address. Go into the Network Connections folder ("Start > Run", type NCPA.CPL and click OK), right click the Local Area Connection and select Properties. Highlight the entry for "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" and click the Properties button.

In the TCP/IP Properties sheet that opens, select "Use the following IP address" and type in...

IP address -
Subnet Mask -
(Leave the default Gateway address blank)

...and click OK back through all open windows. You should now be able to access the Wireless Access Point's configuration.

To revert to automatic IP addressing, go back into the TCP/IPv4 Properties and set *BOTH* the IP and DNS sections back to getting their addresses automatically.
