netgear wnr834b discovering static ip connection incorrectly
« on: January 03, 2011, 03:33:18 PM »
My netgear router has never had a problem before. For no reason became real slow and now wont even connect.   I tried rebooting several times.  I then tried to run setup wizard again, and it keeps telling me i have a static ip connection which is incorrect.  I need for the router to discover a dynamic connection, but having no luck.  Internet works fine when  I plug it directly into computer.  It also works fine with the cable running from the router to the computer. Sometimes laptop doesnt even recognize wireless network, but when it does, it wont connect.

In your netgear on the basic settings page is where you can set if the IP is static or not. Put it to auto there :wink:
