      DG834GT slow in router menu

      I have the white netgear router and it used to be fine but for the last few weeks it has been really slow in the settings menu. I keep getting dns errors, i am set on open dns and still have dns errors.

      In the router menu, it takes a long time to load the menu and then if you click on any setting they also take along time to load on screen.

      Any ideas?

      Re: DG834GT slow in router menu

      DNS errors are usually caused by the PC rather than the router. Try opening a Command Prompt and typing ipconfig /flushdns hit Enter.

      Negative look ups can also cause problems. If you get a bad address it is only supposed to stay in the cache for a few minutes, but sometimes it lingers. To fix this copy and paste this script by John Navas and save it to your desktop as DNS.reg .
      Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

      [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Dnscache\Parameters]
      "NegativeCacheTime"=dword:00000000
      "NetFailureCacheTime"=dword:00000000
      "NegativeSOACacheTime"=dword:00000000
      This is unlikely to cause any problems but it is always best to Export your Registry settings before you run it. To do this open the Run box and type regedit when the editor opens click File on the Menu bar and select Export. Save it to your desktop where it is easily found. When you have done that double click the DNS.reg file and allow it to execute. Although written for Win2000/XP it will work with Vista.

      Try these and see if it helps. If it does not help post back and I will tell you how to fix the Hosts file, which can also cause problems if it is corrupted.
