Glad I discovered this forum, hope someone can help. Take your time though
So In my house my wife and I had two older XP machines hardwired into a Netgear WGR614v7 wireless router, a laptop connected wirelessly downstairs primarily for media streaming and a PS3 wirelessly connected in the living room. All was well.
We decide 5 years is enough so I build us each new Windows 7 64bit machines in place of the old XPs. Again, hardwired into the network, nothing else in the configuration has changed.
After several attempts at resetting passwords, wireless network names, restoring factory defaults on the router, etc., I seem to be allowed only one simultaneous wireless connection. The hardwired side is fine. It would seem that just having Windows 7 present in the network has caused this. So to use my PS3 I've gotta go downstairs and turn off the laptop, come back up, do my thing, then once it's off go back down and reconnect the laptop. Attempting to connect it while the PS3 has an established connection gives me an Incorrect Passkey error.
I've since run a rather permanent Ethernet connection and rather enjoy the hardwired speed on the PS3 and can still use the laptop fine, so like I said, no rush. But knowing that I'm not allowed any additional wireless devices is rather irritating.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
