    Hello, the webpage on netgear.com says that the DG834G is a router
    *and* a switch. Based on this assumption, i`ve bought this device to
    connect both of my computers to the internet and to create a home
    network in order to share files etc.

    I was able to create a shared internet connection but cannot get the
    home network working.

    Is there any way to enable the home network? I`m afraid that the
    description on webpage is misleading since the manual nor faqs do not
    mention anything about the switch, not even in the specification.

    Thank you!

  2. LOL, you have to turn on file sharing on the computers behind your router in
    order to share files between them otherwise, only the default shares are
    turned on...
