Have a Netgear DG834gV4 modem router. It works fine with my laptop but when connected to a friends machine web pages will not display. Have checked all usual settings - have done ipconfig/release ipconfig/flushdns ipconfig/renew etc. Tried to ping news.google.com but was unable to do so. When I pinged 18.104.22.168 Google opened.
Can the DNS settings have got messed up by a virus. Machine is running Bullguard antivirus and it had flagged up a Trojan.Agent.AGGO around the time that his machine stopped connecting to the internet.
Have tried to give a fixed DNS but this doesn't work. Is it worth trying winsockfix? Any ideas - many thanks

I've recently been having this similar problem with my netgear adapter which has stopped my internet from working on my laptop, and have searched on my PC for help on the matter, and found this message board to which I was quite suprised to see fairly recent posts about others having the same problem.
My signal strengh is excellent, my latop says I'm connected to my network, but everytime I search on firefox/IE, I get 'Paged cannot be displayed' .
This is very frustrating and I'm pretty confused. My IPOD touch connects to the adapter but my laptop does not.
Anyone with any suggestions would be much appreciated (if it involves complex computing terms, please could they explain it in a more step-by step approach, as I'm not that technically gifted!)
Hello guys well my router was doing the same thing. Here is what I did to fix it.
1. Go to the icon on your pc that says router setup.
2. It tells you all of the properties including your mac address.
3. copy the number.
4. Go into the icon that says router login. Use admin as name and password as password.
5. Go to basic settings. click use this mac address and type it in.
6. click apply
It is possible that although everyone is reporting this as teh same problem, it may not be the case. With that in mind, the following may work only for some of you. I had similar symptms and ity turned out to be an issue with the DNS. The router was unable to connect to my ISP DNS. The solution was to set teh DNS addresses manually in the router config and or move to using an Open DNS service (opendns.org).
If you do not know what the DNS addresses are then call your ISP and ask. Then go to your router basic setup page and select the option use teh following DNS addresses. Enter them manually and problem resolved.
I have a similar problem too, I can connect but not when it's displayed as 'Connected' I have to fiddle around until it displays 'Disconnected' and then a can use the Internet. Having my computer think it's disconnected causes many problem though (like not because able to see connection speed or the connection icon).
I seem to be having the somewhat of the same problem. My netgear router is connected but my wirless usbadapter which is pretty much the same exact thing as the router will not even connect to the router. This is really making me andgry cause the same usb adapter just connected to the same router on a diff computer. Any help? Please b4 I lose my mind
