No worries...Have you also tried this?

You might want to experiment and logon to your router setting, try removing the network security for now or lower the security to WEP and connect one of your wireless devices.

Hello guys

I have an update.
Good news: WiFi works
Bad news: Can no longer connect via ethernet...

I found an old router(D-Link) and connected it up and wifi came up, but I didnt know the password for the router page or for the wifi, but that didnt matter because I am not going to use this D-Link router.

Therefore, I went to exchange my router for a new one (still netgear, but different model N600). Connected it all up, wifi works but somehow my computer isn't connected to the network.

Sometimes it manages to connect and shows it as a unidentified network. I tried going on 192.168.0.1 from there, but my browser says unable to connect. Sometimes it goes off and no network is identified and a red cross is shown on the network symbol.

I tried ethernet through my laptop, but same result as computer

Determined to get internet up for the day, I decided to set the router up using my smartphone. Now I have Wifi over all my devices except my computer

What do you think? Problem with my computer?

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply...How many computers are affected (2) - both wired connection and Wi-Fi works?

Hello, thanks for your help.

Anything through ethernet connects to an unidentified network. Wifi is slightly unstable but works which is the main point.

I have made a separate thread for this problem with this new router http://www.sevenforums.com/network-s...ml#post2147761
