Windows 7: Need Router help

While waiting for a reply I saw this .. on choosing a password for this location..Utilities> System Settings below.
Administrator Password
The Router ships with NO password entered. If you wish to add a password for more security, you can set a password here. Keep your password in a safe place, as you will need this password if you need to log into the router in the future. It is also recommended that you set a password if you plan to use the Remote management feature of this Router.

The login timeout option allows you to set the period of time that you can be logged into the Router's advanced setup interface. The timer starts when there has been no activity. For example, you have made some changes in the advanced setup interface, then left your computer alone without clicking "Logout". Assuming the timeout is set to 10 minutes, then 10 minutes after you leave, the login session will expire. You will have to login to the router again to make any more changes. The login timeout option is for security purposes and the default is set to 10 minutes. As a note, only one computer can be logged into the Router's advanced setup interface at one time.

When looking at your "Network and Sharing Center", what does it say where the arrow is pointing?

Mine doesn't look like that..
I used to have that red top house..
In the 1st place on the left I see the OLD.. Georgia-Pc icon...
looks like a pc ..
to the right of the icon... is a LINE with a RED X sitting on the top..
to the right of the red X the line continues.. to what looks like grayed out .. Internet Icon

I looked around while waiting your reply.. on my network map it tells me the adapter is NOT connected.

OK ... do you see the "Manage Wireless Networks" to the left of what we are looking at now? If so click on that, then right click on the wireless network and select "Properties" and find the "Security Tab". I have two screen shots above for you to look at.

See if you can make sure the "Security Tab" is set to WPA2-Personal.

OK but we are using WPA2-Personal, not WPA-Personal

Click the drop down box and select WPA2-Personal. Re-enter YOUR "Key Phrase". You might need to restart the laptop.

The one other major issue that might block Internet access for you here is your Anti-Virus / Firewall. If changing to WPA2 does not restore Internet connection, try disabling the Anti-Virus or Firewall or both to see if that helps?

It is late for me, so I will see how things go for you tomorrow.

Good night!
