You omitted some important information, the make/model of the router.

For 98 or ME, Start, Run, COMMAND to open a DOS window:
--- or ---
For 2K or XP, Start, Run, CMD to open a DOS window:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

OK, your router is at 192.168.1.254, which is why the address you're using doesn't work.

Note that you should NOT do router configuration over wireless connections, since a mistake can leave you disconnected. You should always have at least one wired connection, or at least the capability of establishing one if you can't connect wirelessly.

Well, it appears that whatever router you're connecting to has a default address of 192.168.1.254. Could you be connected to a neighbor's router and not yours? Did someone configure the router with new addresses?

Plug a CAT5 cable into the laptop and one of the router ports, and see if you get a different set of addresses for the default gateway and DNS server.

BTW, what is the exact model of that router, there is a DG834G and a DG834Gv2 model. the DG834G has a 15v power supply, and the DG834Gv2 has a 12v power supply, and the model should be on the bottom label.

According to the Netgear set-up guide (ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/dg...tall_guide.pdf), the DG834G has a built-in ADSL modem and includes a 4 port router on the LAN side. Are you plugging the DG834 into another modem or are you plugging another router into a LAN port on the DG834G?

EDIT: From the DG834G User Manual ( ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/dg...nce_manual.pdf ):
The LAN IP Setup menu allows configuration of LAN IP services such as DHCP and RIP. These
features can be found under the Advanced heading in the Main Menu of the browser interface.
The router is shipped preconfigured to use private IP addresses on the LAN side, and to act as a
DHCP server. The router’s default LAN IP configuration is:
• LAN IP addresses—192.168.0.1
• Subnet mask—255.255.255.0

I think you are missing the point. It looks like from your IPCONFIG information that the router is 192.168.1.254. So to connect to the router you will need its IP address... which is the 1.254 number.

Think of this as your friend changing their telephone number. If you are calling the original number, you won't get your friend until you use his new number

At least this is what I see from it anyways.

192.168.1.254 is the config address for Speedtouch routers. Either you're connected to a neighbour's router, or you have a Speedtouch router, not a Netgear one.

Netgear's config page is definitely 192.168.0.1, but this is not what you are connected to.

Like I said, connect to a wired connection, then there'll be no doubt which router you are connected to.
