Hi, I've had the specified router for a few months. About two weeks ago, its wireless signal suddenly stopped working. The router itself remains on and still seems to be broadcasting an SSID, but whenever I try to connect I remain on the wireless briefly (even then, unable to do anything) before getting disconnected. The router works when I hook up with a CAT5, but that kind of defeats the purpose of a "wireless router."
I have already tried resetting the network multiple times. A few times, it seemed to start working again, but by the time I had set up the network to my liking it no longer worked.
Any tips, or is this just a defective router? It's just weird, because it worked completely without problem for so long and suddenly crashed with no apparent cause.

Locate at the router's management page the Basic Wireless settings. At this section locate the line displaying "wireless channel" and change it at any channel you like, your connected devices will auto locate the new channel and connect without any problem. This happens from time to time, especially when a strong wireless transmitter is (or comes) near the Wi-Fi area (maybe a wireless phone is your problem or something like that).
Take care that in case you make a change at another setting, your connected devices may not locate the new setting, so you will have to connect to the router using the ethernet connection in order to recover your problem.

This is just a problem with the wireless settings of the router, you can try first to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds while power is ON and then after that you should be able to find the default wireless name of the router which is linksys, after you reset the router just need to reconfigure it back...
It comes down to a few things with routers and wireless connections: 1. If you have been dropping the signal over the past few weeks try doing a test on the wireless network connection via the diagnostic tool within the specific wireless connection. 2. You may have gotten a bad update to the wireless card. Try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it. 3. Try deleting the wireless connection for your router and then make 'a new' wireless connection.
You did mention that it was working fine for several weeks suddenly your wireless computers stopped functioning and your getting a message that the security key in incorrect. This only means that its either your entering the wrong encryption key or someone changed the previous security key to something else. By the way what type of wireless security did you configured on the router initially was it WEP or WPA, if its WEP(64 or 128 bit) and your using a bulit-in wireless adapter on your laptop you need the default WEP key because the passphrase only works with a Netgear WLAN Utility.
Know if your having difficulties accessing the setup page of the router you may need to check on your browser settings, turn off the pop up blocker and firewall temporarily, also try another computer. Now if all fails you may need to press that reset button on your router and set it up again.
