Can anyone help me please Ive just got rid of a Linksys wired modem/router because I could connect to BT broadband max at all. So then purchased a Netgear 843v3 I had it set up but no way would it connect to server,Netgear checked all the settings and said all o/k it shows as being connected to ADSL and running twice as fast as the BT Voyager 220v .Rang BT waste of time(or time wasters take your choice)is there anyone out there that can give me clue what is going on am I missing out somehow . Im using a wired device because to many round here are having trouble with wirless , HELP PLEASE thanks for reading my sorry tale of woe
Ive been sat at this damn thing for the last 10 hrs Gods truth my backside is sore yes ihave tried that to no avail also spent almost 45 mins to netgear who confirmed everything was o/k it just won't go online keeps saying cannot connect to server. thanks anyway
Having just converted to a router from a standard modem, I feel for you! Do the lights on the router indicate that it is connected? If so, the router is working OK, so the problem could be with the way the computer is set up to connect to it. It took several goes with mine before it all worked OK.
Sorry been so long responding have a lot of medical problems and have to rest pm .Firstly Iv'e not changed my password at all Netgear advised on that,with regards Bt you might as well talk to the wall they checked line o/k then stated as it was third party device they could not help oh and gave a tel/no to ring tocheck status which said there was no b/band a bit strange as i was asking for help on here and phoning at the same (with old modem) oh yes it is a wired unit many thanks
Yes all the lights are on as they should be ie power,adsl,and lan all green the status panel shows it was receiving 5068 kbs at the momentI am only getting 2480 kbs on my bt modem I'll have another go to-morrow I'm just about all in I think its that thing called age and athritis many thanks for trying to help
