    Hi mortifier80, To answer your questions no this is not my first time trying to connect, everything was working fine until a couple of days ago. We have a desk top with a dsl modem, i have a laptop with the router so i guess that's (1 connected ?). Both are online, on the router the first three lights are lit, the signal, 1 port, & the one in the middle, as well the power. It's wireless & yes if I take out the ethernet wire & connect directly it works.

    Unable to connect with my.netgear for support using wireless modem. Invalid password which I just received today

    Is this your first time to connect your router? How many computers are connected to the router? How many computers are online and how many are not? What are the lights lit on the router and modem? Is your computer connected wired or wireless? Do you have internet connection when connected directly to the modem?

1. check your physical connection. modem should be connected to the internet port of the router. wired pc to any lan ports (ports1-4)
2. make sure that the distance of the wireless router and wireless pc is not very far
3. if you know the wireless configuration of your router proceed with number 4, if not see my note below.
4. right click the wireless icon on the pc, choose 'view available wireless network' or connect to a network.
5. check if your SSID is showing. If it is showing and it says secured, click on it and enter your encryption (either WPA or WEP or WPA2).
6. if SSID is not showing, go to the router configuration page and change your channel. play around with your channel until your non working pc sees the SSID.

note(checking router configuration): on the wired pc, open internet explorer browser, type (default username is admin & password is password or 1234) Note: if you changed your ip address or password on the router, use that.

I recently had an issue with the same router, I got rid of it, and bought another brand.

Also if you have a cordless phone transmitting on the same frequency as your router, the phone will overpower the router and you won't pick up a signal from the router, but usually only if the phone is breing used.

It stopped recognizing my air printer and I dont know how to get it back online

On your desktop, go to control panel and then to network and internet setting's. Now click on network devices and see if your printer show's up. If not, unplug printer for one minute then plug back in and power on, If it is detected in the network devices, then it should work. Being that it is no longer working for either the desktop or ipad, then it is most likely the printer itself and should now be available to both once it is detected in network devices . Once it is detected, left click on the printer icon and then right click on "connect".

Cant connect to the router, one computer can, but the rest cannot even detect the router, wirelessly or lined

Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

Hi, When connecting online computer constantly freezes or takes an age to load. No virus present. What else could this be???

Are we talking of going online, or booting the computer?

Anyway, likely causes include attempts to connect to online services (e.g., to check upgrades, send statistics and what have you), being stalled due to no DNS yet or due to a lagging DNS.

You can investigate such situations with tools like BootVis or SysInternals TCPView and SysInternals Process Explorer. Be aware, though, that such diagnostics require a good deal of field experience to be used to the full.

An easier even if maybe not as complete way to diagnose slowdowns could be a network tuning utility, e.g., Network Mechanic or TCP SpeedUp. This will only diagnose network bottlenecks, though; "stalled update requests" will not be detected.

I cant get onlin

I have seen this kind of strange behavior when the adapter is bad. No network detection, or connect but no webpages would ever come up, weird problems. All cleared up by replacing the adapter with an identical one, so it was not because of any settings or software issues. A new adapter is probably needed.
