Problems connecting my laptop to wireless router

I just re-installed my netgear WGR614 wireless router. It was working fine i was able to establish an authentication with my laptop but i could not browse the web. so i went into my routerlogin and changed my setting to a WPA thinking it would help. nothing. so i switched back to WEP .. now it won't even recognize the router on my laptop? what could be the problem here. should i do the painful thing and reinstall the netgear AGAIN?

    I have a Netgear WGR614 v3 wireless router, everything works fine on the devices connnected via cable but lately I observed that my 2 desktop computers equipped with wireless cards are loosing connectivity to the router. I have to restart the router in order for the 2 desktops to reconnect,

    this is happening like 2-4 times per day. I did a factory default reset and

    re-configured the router but still having this problem, I also checked for any

    available firmware upgrades but could not find any. Can anyone tell me what could be the problem? the router is hardly 3 months old...



    Thanks,

Make sure that you do the setup via cable, not through wireless!
If you change form WPA to WEP, the length of the key changes and you will have to provide this new key if you want to connect wireless to your router.
You can leave your laptop connected via cable and check if your wireless card can connect.
No, you don't have to reinstall everything again. Just plug in the cable, connect to your router (192.168.x.x) and check your wireless setup.

Laptop can not connect to netgear wireless router


I would suggest using the network setup wizard, in the control panel. Best option is to copy the data to a pen drive and transfer to your daughters laptop.

I can't get my Netgear router to work on my new laptop with Windows 7. I can't connect to the network. Netgear doesn't show up at all on my laptop.


Windows 7 has various changes from previous operating systems, you need to disable the built in firewall to establish contact.
You also need to go to the netwrok and sharing centre and choose to setup a network.

To establish a wireless connection between the router and computer, the router’s wireless setting (SSID or Network Name, Channel, and Mode of communication) has to be configured. Please follow the steps below to configure the wireless settings on your NETGEAR router.
  1. Connect a computer to the LAN port of the router using an ethernet cable.
  2. Open up a browser and type in the following URL: http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (depending on the model number of the router)
  3. Type the Username as admin, and Password as password. Then click OK.
    1. To change the Wireless settings, click Wireless Settings under Setup on the left menu bar.
  1. Under Wireless Network, (make a note of these settings, you need these values to configure your wireless clients)
2.
    • Change SSID from default NETGEAR to any desired name (for e.g. Home)
    • Select the Region as applicable - Incorrect selection may cause performance problems.
    • Select any one of the available Channel.
    • Apply the changes
Configuring Wireless Clients:
The steps explained below use the Windows XP wireless client. If your card came with
its own wireless configuration utility, you may use that as well.
  1. Open the Control Panel from the Start Menu.
  1. Right-click Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties.
  1. on the Wireless Networks tab and if unchecked, check the box for Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings.
Then click OK.
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection, Select View Available Wireless Networks
  1. This will lists all the available wireless networks in range. Select your network from the list and click Connect.
If you are connecting to a secured wireless network, you will be prompted for a Network key. Type the Network key (if you are using WEP security, make sure you are typing the network key, not the Passphrase) and click Connect
  1. Your network list should now display your connection status. If you are connected and your router is setup for internet access, you are ready to connect to the Internet wirelessly.

Connection is VERY slow!


It sounds like you either:

A) Too far away from the router to establish a reliable connection.

-OR-

B) Your wireless card is not compatible with the router.

If it's B - I recommend disabling WEP to see what happens. If you are connecting fine with WEP disabled, the problem is definitely wi-fi card compatibility with your router.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
