Here's my problem, I've been with BT Yahoo for about a year I connect to the internet via a 'Alcatel Speed touch USB modem' at 1Mb, the whole set up has been working fine. Now I had this idea to wirelessly connect my laptop, thus allowing the kids to play on the computer to their hearts content and me get on with some proper work!. So, I purchased a Netgear 54 Mbps Wireless ADS Firewall Router DG 834G. It arrived this afternoon, and so my problems begin.
I unplugged my existing USB modem, connected the new DG834G as per the instructions (connecting it to the Ethernet connection on the back of my PC) great so far, until the instructions say 'Connect to the router by typing http://192.168.0.1 in the address line of internet explorer. Nothing happens I just get the standard message about the page not being available ( the sort of message you get when there is no connection to the internet). The instructions lead me to believe that to proceed with the installation the DG834G has to be connected to the internet!. Catch 22
I'm completely at a loss can anybody help me
Thanks in anticipation
