  • Router Help

    Ok teckie god's.

    i need some help with my router. my isp has changed authentication protocols from CHAP to PAP.

    consequently i need to change a setting in my router.

    Howver i spent a few hours at home last night but could not find where to change it, so consequently i could not unload some whop-ass on DC last night.

    If anyone has used a NETGEAR DG814 router/4-port hub before and can help me, it would be very much appreciated.

    thanks

    I have downloaded the manual for the router and there is no mention of PAP or Chap. Your ISP has change Authentication protocols? who told you this? normally PAP or Chap is used with dialups or VPN's there is the option for that. but if you use you LAN to connect to the router then you may have a problem.
    I would suggest contacting your ISP with regards to this. Are you having any problems connecting to the net? if not just ignore it.
    If you are having problems call your ISP support line.

    Sorry i could not help out. I got the netgear MR814 which is the one with the wireless option on it and that does not have any settings about PAP or chap.

      some adsl routers do provide options for pap...normally the default is chap (more secure)

      If you don't see options to change this manually then it is most likely auto-detecting..eg. use chap 1st...then if fails use pap.

        is far as i can tell after spending all mornign on the net while waiting on hold to netgear support (which i gave up on after 45mins) the DG814 auto detects either CHAP or PAP

        But i still cant get any connection



        ill try updating the firmware n see what happens
