I have netgear DG834G router, winxp, I used to be able to get online with any pc, connected to the router, but for some reason it will only connect to internet with my own pc,the router has 4 ports, I have my pc pluged into port 1 and the led light is on, if I connect another pc to the router say port 2 the led light won't show,

And its the same if you try all ports?

“I have my pc plugged into port 1 and the led light is on, if I connect another pc to the router say port 2 the led light won't show”

Using the cable that is plug into port 1 check if port 2-4 will light up as the second pc could have a bad Lan card

I have tried all the ports with my ethernet cable and they all light up, so I assume it must be the router settings.

I would suggest that you check the Ethernet cable is good and the Lan card driver is set up

correct before changing any setting in the router
