    ok, ive just got a brand spanking new Netgear DG834GT wireless router to replace my old crappy one.

    however i cant connect to the internet on my new one, it gives me this message when i run the test


    is that a problem with my router that i need to sort out?

    the router came with the latest firmware thats been released for it so cant even upgrade that :(

    Sooooooooo, is there an admin/config page on the old router at all (or, *shudder*, is it actually a DSL modem ?), if so go look up things like VC, login, pass, etc. on that and note them down to make sure they're set correctly on the new one.

    erm, i dunno why, or how, but the wireless one just started working last night :p

    i didnt change any settings, just left them how they were earlier, however the old router has stopped working now :eek7:

    oh and the settings were correct i assume, since it works, i had all the VC, login and password info from ISP so i dont think it was that that had caused to problem :p
