Hi everyone1

I moved from Aus to NZ and can not find a way to conect my netgear DG834gt to vodafone ADSL2+ service. AS per my basic understanding when you first connect the wireless modem it request to set up  the conection. First problem is that hte guys from Negear do not have a preset for NZ .... and any other country does not work.

I tried to replicate on the manual setting the DNS address I saw on the original modem from Vodafone ... but did not work.

Does anyone know the "magic steps" I need to follow to make it work?

Many thanks fin advance

Look for the IP address your connected as, mine is  The IP address of the router therefore would
