Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
Just bought a WGR614v9. The problem is, when my friend brings her laptop over, it finds my router in the list of available networks and connects to it with no problem, but there is no data transfer. Its as if someone has turned the cable modem off and left the wireless router on. Obviously this is not the case because my laptop works perfectly along side hers( all she gets is the Internet Explorer error page). Her laptop connects at other places (coffee shops...ect) so we have eliminated the laptop as the problem. Kinda at a loss here>
I will assume you have setup your router and changed some basic settings and are using some sort of security on your wirelss router, WEP, WPA, etc. I have had this problem in the past where the security settings were not just right and it showed connection, but not activity. I had changed from WEP to WPA and a family memeber who previously could connect could not anymore.
On you friends laptop, delete the the profile for your router and start over. ie. find your router and add it to their laptop with the current password. Do not just try and change it, as it can still give you issues.
Another possiblity is you have turned on "Wireless Card Access List", MAC filtering. This could also allow a person to connect but then not allow data transfer.
Beware: Before you hold the reset button for over 5 sec, as another suggested, you will be defaulting your router to new out of the box settings with no security or any previous modifications.

Unplug the cable modem, wait 10 secs and plug it back in. Do the same for the router. if no luck, reset the router with the reset button behind by holding it down for 15 secs and release, then wait 60 secs and try connecting again. If no luck, its something to do with the internet settings on your friend's laptop.
