Hi, I have the netgear connected to my home pc. I have other laptops enabled (all xp/vista-based) no probs. I added the new macbook address to my wireless access list, but the mac keeps asking for a password (which we don't have). I even went to the extent of setting up a WPA password, but the Macbook can still not connect. Where am I going wrong? I've not had any problem setting up any windows laptops, just the mac one. Thanks a lot.

ok your problem is the home edition for some reason there are features that are missing compared to all xp versions and i'm a little surpise with vista because of none problems but check all your network settings on all computers but start with the home edition the pproblem one make sure the sttings areset and there are a few things that might not be turned on that has to be check under the add and remove program components but sometimes this area might request the os disk to make changes and also check under network settings that the log on in the network properities is client for microsoft networks then goto internet protocol the address should be obtain auto and very important under internet protocol click properties then advance then at the top click the tab at the top that say options then you will see tcp/ip filter click properties and make all checks are enabled and permit all which is the common for this to be turn off and also i like to make windows the wireless default control under the card configure properties.. but again the home edtion has some features that are not available compared to xp pro which is the best xp os of xp versions....
Sometimes firewalls on your computers can cause connection issues. I had the same problem with my home network. I had norton internet security 2008 on both systems, but the firewall settings on both computers had to be adjusted to allow the computers to talk. If you have different brand firewalls on each computer, you should consider to switching one of the computers so that it matches the other.
Another thing you want to do is log into the router's web utility and check to see if the wireless settings are blocking wireless connections in some way. You also want to make sure the ssid broadcast is enabled.
Finally, you really should consider using security on your router, so wireless connections would be password protected. I suggest wpa personal.
Hi,I am going crazy! Just moved house and took my Netgear Wireless router with me. However, even though the hard wired base unit works, my wireless laptop can't access the internet - even though a full stregnth signal is there when i browse for wireless connections. Using Vista Home Premium. Help appreciated!
Funny this, We are doing the same thing! same wireless connect, but I am on a PC you can switch all of your files, but you would have to upload them or ask your mac seller if they could transfer it for you.
