You might try connecting using WPS instead if your router has a WPS button. Others say their s7 does not detect/connect to 5ghz signals. it might be possible under the advanced settings on the S7 to FORCE 2.4ghz connection to check if thats more reliable. It is common for wifi chipsets to not like each other. Most routers are Dual Signal capable and Its worth looking at the router settings to see if you can also switch on GUEST signal for OLDER devices.

Log into your router and change the channel and see if that helps. Failing that try rebooting the router to factory settings and deleting your connection from the laptop. Then start from scratch again...Hope this helps...Please let me no...

How to enable my netgear DG834G v4


By setting it up . Do you have the instruction manual this would be a good starting point. Although you did not give a lot of information I will offer you a bit of information. This router is an ADSL router so you need to have an internet service provider that can provide ADSL on your phone line. Once you have an internet service provider give them a call and ask them to guide you in how to set up ADSL and connect this dg834G router to their network. ADSL requires ADSL line filters on all phones. While you are setting up the ADSL you might want to also setup encryption on the WI FI settings security and give it a network name. in the router.

Go back into WiFi, select Connect. The information for your WiFi connection should still be there, usually the strongest signal or the one nearest the top of the list. Otherwise, when you set up the iPad it should have taken a backup of all the settings. You can go into iTunes and do a restore from the most recent backup.

Check to see if you can plug the wan port to your adsl modem and then plug your pc to the router. on ADSL, some ISPs will record your mac address to avoid sharing. Just see I your router supports cloning your mac. All you do is login to your router from your pc, and it should be under your Wan settings. Use DHCP unless specified otherwise, and ensure to enter any pptp login info if your ISP provided any.
