Two wireless connections to Netgear

  gentong 16:23 07 Jun 2008

Hi, I am currently trying to connect a second wireless computer to my netgear DG834G.The second computer is a recognised device on this router and Sometimes it seems to work and other times not? I have read some of the posts on this forum and I understand that i probably need to assign a different IP address to each Attached device,but am not too sure how to do this.Can anyone help?? Thanks

Each device should be set to acquire an IP address automatically , and the router set to DHCP .

from the first computer(lap top),you are able to go online.

From the second computer with the same router.. you not able to go online.

Step1: Remove the preferred networks and try connect to your network.

step2:check the ip address.

But you said after a while you not able to go online.

The lap top should picks up ip address from the router which will be listed in attached devices.

check in attached devices.

-->open the browser page.
-->Type in and press enter.
-->enter user name and password for router.
-->this makes u enter into router page.
-->you could find small blue screen on the left hand side.
-->from that .. click on "Attach devices".
-->check the ip address for the second laptop is listed or not.
-->if it is listed,there is no problem in the router.
-->might be the problem with the wireless adapter in the second laptop.
-->Because at the same time first lap top going online.

-->if you are sure there is no problem in wireless adapter.

-->try to assign static ip address to the lap top inder wireless network connection and check whether you able to go online.
