Question about NetGear WGR614 Router
We have the Netgear router upstairs on "main" computer (runs XP). We have used this router for two other computers - one upstairs and a laptop. Up until yesterday - no problems connecting. Today, first found the laptop wouldn't connect... Netgear wasn't a choice for wireless connection. Checked downstairs - same story. After resetting Netgear router - both computers show Netgear wireless connection available - however - there are 5 empty bars - but they show no signal available. Neither computer will connect. The Netgear router lights show - power, wireless, internet and "2". Any ideas on what's going on?
Hello....sudden loss of wireless on two computers, in the same home, may indicate that a powerful source of wireless interference has just arrived (since your wireless router light is still on).
1) Does the signal improve if you move the router, or move the laptop closer to the router?
2) Have you had any success with changing the channel on your router? (Login to router > select Wireless Settings > Channel)
If you have not moved furniture yourself, or installed a device which could interfere with the signal (eg a DECT phone), it's possible a neighbour's new router may be the culprit.
Please come back to Fixya if this does not help.
