joeypesci Posted April 21, 2010 Share Posted April 21, 2010 Is there anyway to get on a Netgear dg834g v2 when it's not giving out an IP address? I've connected to it with a cable but it constantly never gives an IP so I just get the 169 address. I then can't get to it's interface. I factory reset it but nothing. It looks like something is going on as when I plug in the laptop to it, the light on the port I'm in is green and randomly flickers now and then to indicate traffic. I'm using a power supply from a netgear switch as this Netgear dg834g v2 has lost its. I'm sure that's not the issue. Anyone have any ideas if it's possible to get back into it? I've tried the recovery firmware flash from Netgear, but as I can't get an IP address for the shitty thing, it won't work. Time to take it apart. Set my laptop to static IP but still can't get on the router. The ip it's set as, which is on the bottom doesn't work. Well I assume it's set as that. And tried the recovery tool but as laptop can't connect to it, it won't work. I was gonna try Cain and Able to scan for MAC addresses on all available IPs but will takes ages so didn't bother. Was to see if it picks up the IP address of the router as it might be set as something else. May do that one day. ------ It's a bit odd this one. I still can't get to the setup screen and I know it's not giving out dhcp. However, I can use it fine as a switch. It was hooked up to my laptop. Then from the borked router another cable goes to the main internet router. Then I can access the net. So it's clearly seems to be working as a switch. Odd.
