      Unhappy 54 Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Router Netgear DG834G v2

      Hi
      Can anyone out there help.
      I cannot seem to get my netgear router to work since I switched from BT to SKYBroadband.
      I have tried entering settings from the sky web page and also tried the settings from the supplied Sagem router of which both dont work.
      I also dont know whether my router needs to log in using username and password. I think that the ip settings are not dynamic but i am not sure as the sagem and the netgear routerlogin pages are different.
      I also have tried the setup wizard which works on BT but didnt work on SkyBroadband.
      If anyone can take me through the process of setting up my Netgear step by step I would be grateful as the Sky Sagem router is very stubborn to start up.

      Paul

      You have to obtain the username and password from the Sagem router and put these into your Netgear. You will find details on how to do this here-

      Re: 54 Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Router Netgear DG834G v2

      I think it would be far better to get the Sagem working. It doesn't need to be configured - it's effectively pre-configured for you. Just plug it in and go. If your PC is using a fixed IP address, change it to get an address automatically, if you're having problems.

      Oh, and sometimes, it can take a little while for the connection to establish. I think it's probably due to the authentication server being overloaded. But a different router would have exactly the same problem. I keep my router on all the time (it doesn't eat much) so I don't have to wait for it to connect to Sky's network.
