DG834G Setup

I have just about opened the box for my new Netgear DG834G and thought I'd ask the experts before I blindly connect the thing up.

Here are my questions:

1. What settings do I need to find ready for the new connection?
2. What can I safely remove from my computer once I disconnect my Dynamode ADSL modem?
3. Are there any little pitfalls I may encounter?

Many thanks for the help in anticipation.

DG834G Setup

Hi Tony,

The DG834G is really easy to set up. It auto detects and auto configures all of the basic settings apart from your username and password.
For the Dynamode modem, just unplug it and uninstall the drivers.
The only problem I've had with my DG834G was when I was setting up the wireless networking security I copied the wrong MAC address and looked my wireless card out, in which case I'd recommend setting anything like that up to do it via a network cable.

DG834G Setup

Hi Dave,

Many thanks for the help.

I plan to connect my main PC with a cable to the DG834G and then use my laptop via RF. The perhaps link my daughter's PC via RF. Then finally, when funds allow - get myself an iPAQ.
