      Netgear DGN2000 won't connect

      Hi,

      My Sky router has been really flaky recently, so I bought a Netgear DGN2000 to replace it. I got my username and password out of the original Sky router using the cm9 password generator.

      The new router is set up, and connects to the Sky network fine. My problem is that none of the computers on my network can access any internet sites.

      The router itself has been assigned an IP by Sky, and I can do a DNS lookup and ping sites from the router control panel. However, if I try to ping from a computer on my network, it's 192.168.0.1 that sends the reply.

      Any ideas why this is happening?

      Thanks

      Terry

      Is DCHP enabled in your router? This what allocates the internal IP address of each PC.
      Also do you have Ping turned off in your router?

      Are the other pc's connected wireless or cable? if wireless is wirless enabled in router?

      Could be your firewalls or AVs which are blocking you. Try starting one, connected by cable, in Safe Mode with Networking, see if you can connect. Also check in the LAN properties that the PC is set to obtain an IP address automatically.
