DG834G and MSN Messenger 6.2

I think that since I installed this router that I can't use voice obver MSN Messenger although I can chat by typing. Skype has no such problem.

Is there a setting I need to add to get through the firewall? Is this one of the 'bugs' Netgear report as being fixed in the latest firmware upgrade?

Cheers

Try setting UPnP on your router and within windows, this should solve your problem.

It is an issue with earlier firmware versions rather than having UPnP switched on.
http://kbserver.netgear.com/support_details.asp?dnldID=673 is where you will find the updated firmware version 1.04.01
Earlier versions of the firmware will not work properly with msn messenger 6 upwards.
And follow netgears advice about using the ethernet port and not the wireless port when upgrading the firmware. Data corruption will happen if you use the wireless port on the router.

Easiest way is to have UPnP on in the router and installed on the OS.

I too have been having problems with this router

I too have been having some problems with this router. It seems to loss connectivity after being connected for some time. For example, if I reboot the router, it picks up an IP address fine and the wireless connection comes up. However, if I leave for the day, e.g. go to work, then come back, it appears to have dropped its connection (rightly so), but will not pick up the wireless connection. Has anyone else seen this problem?

I took a quick look at Netgear’s site, they suggest it could be a problem with the ISP. I suspect that it my be an issue with not having a static IP, but the router should be able to handle that shouldn’t it?

Dropped WAN (DSL) connections can happen due to a number of issues. You will need to go through all the trouble shooting of your setup and wiring first

Anything to do with your LAN (wireless side) has NOTHING to do with the ISP or broadband connection.
