No Login Box on Netgear DG834GT

I'm currently on a wireless network (cable) with a Belkin router that all works fine

I've acquired 3 Netgear DG834GT ADSL Routers from PC World to use in customers homes but had the same problems with all the 3 of them

Out of 3 laptops and 1 desktop only 2 of the laptops get the login box when typing 192.168.0.1 the other 2 just say page cannot be displayed.

The 2 that dont connect ping successfully to the above IP address and receive an IP address from the DHCP but they cannot access the admin pages - its driving me mad.

A phone call to netgear - the only solution was to replace the items, but I said they cant ALL be faulty and besides 2 PC's can get the login box but 2 cant

Ive updated all firmware, and WLAN drivers, turned off pop ups, reduced the security in IE and even tried Firefox (oh and of course there are no software firewalls).

I'm out of ideas as it cant e a problem with the routers, and the PC's work ine off the belkin wireless so cant be a problem with TCP/IP etc

Any suggestions will be fantastic - thanks

Delete the history and clear the cookies in both Firefox & IE.

Are you able to connect as another user in the workstation(s) in question?

Does it make a difference if you type in the full address? ie

http://192.168.0.1

sometimes PCs seem to try and resolve names if you don't specifically give the full address. Also, try downloading Firefox and seeing if it works using that instead of IE.

Cheers,

Joel

Thanks for your input but I've sorted it out

Did a cleanup of the 2 computers Virus, Spyware, Malware, removed programs, reg cleaned etc and it sorted the problem out so I suspect some kind of infection

Thanks guys

Looks like it was spyware trying to resolve everything via their own DNS servers and pass everything into a dodgy search.

The Belkin's default page is 192.168.2.1 which might have caused a temporary problem
