Do you have Xp or Vista?
The little computer on the tool bar is one of your network connections (you have 2, one wireless and one wired)
It ssems like the laptop is not connecting automatically to your wireless network. To change this go into whatever program you are using to configure wireless (it may be configured by netgear or by windows) and make sure you have your wireless netowrk selected as conect automatically and at the top of your list.

Hope that helps.

If you're using your system as the Host for the other systems, turn off your sleep mode. The Host should be active at ALL times.

Wireless connection


Did you change your wireless SSID and channel? Better to enable encryption too. If this problem never happens when you're connecting to other wireless networks you might as well update or reload the firmware/software of your router.

What type of internet connection do you have? (ie. Cable, DSL)

Has your setup worked in the past or is this a new setup?

Server not found} NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router doesn't connect me to the internet.


Dear Loud Nouises,

Your router must be connected properly to the cable modem. This must be to the wan port on the router.

Next, the router must be set-up accordingly to recognize the modem's internet connections. Please ask for the IP address.. and other relevant informations from your internet provider.

Set -up your computer using the internet connections wizard on each of your respective computer.

This should work fine if all connections were correctly configured.
