i have had a netgear DG834PN for a few months now and it was working fine until a few weeks ago when for no reason the wireless light went out and the wireless stopped working. i tried loads of things, rung up netgear etc and went through all the steps but could still not solve the problem. eventually netgear sent me a new unit but for some reason the wireless still wont work despite it being brand new! Does anyone know what could be wrong?

I am sure you have already checked this but is
the wireless turned on on the router?
have there been any changes in anything that could cause interference or shorts with in the system? e.g. a power generator built next door?
I would ensure to update the firmware.

could be the unit went bad in the old one, then they sent you another bad unit.... it has been known to happen.

Just a couple thoughts, I know it probably wont help too much but I am hoping it helps somewhat.

Is it a 2.4 Gig device? Many telephones and babycams use the same frequency. Did you get anything new? I have seen them knock out a wireless router.

Go to start--> control panel-->administrative tools---> services.

In the list of services you can jump to service called "wireless zero configuration" and set it to automatic and click start.


But I dont think that would be issue that makes your light off wireless on router.

Anyways good luck.

Are you able to run internet via wire connection. Did you contacted your ISP about this issue ask them to change the channels or frequency from their end. If that also dont work , then as far as I know you may need to go other new router.

Or else ask our friends here for more solutions.

Okay, if you got a new wireless router, the question is did you configure it to setup a new network name and network key? If you did that, did you create the same network name as your old wireless network, or did you use a different name?

If you are sure that you logged into the router using an ethernet cable and setup all the wireless settings in it, then is your computer able to see the wireless network with your name when you try to "View available wireless networks"?
