Hi, i have netgear and find it very frustrating that most of the time it tells me i only have local or no connectivity - why?
Does anyone know how to change this to get on the internet straight away and avaoid this permenantly?
why does it do it?
Thanks E.

Is it a Netgear DG834GT?
What firmware version are you using?

if it's the router in your other thread i think there is a firmware upgrade but read carefully how to upgrade firmware before you attempt it

also if you are running xp sp1 then installing sp2 may resolve connectivity issues.

it is netgear WGR614v7.
I am running vista and have recently upgraded the firmwear.

Check that the cables are plugged in correctly, eysha, especially the thin grey cable from the phone socket, even change it if you have a spare, also change the filter on that socket.
