Question about NetGear Computers & Internet
I've tried almost everything. I reset my router, added Mac filtering, assigned IP addresses to all my devices, check the wires, and still the problem persists. Basically it goes down like this. Ever so often the router decides it wants to boot all my wireless devices of the network and stay that way for a few seconds then reconnects. Then, and this is rare, the router itself seem to reset itself (the power light turns yellow and all the lights go out). When it disconnects it still show up on my list of available networks but I can't connect to it. Connection through a wired network seems to work fine because my Xbox and Desktop computer work fine wired. I even tried it on my laptop and it was ok. I'm wondering if it could be someone try to pry into my network but the MAC filtering should be taking care of that. Then again I'm not an expert so i could be wrong. All my laptop run on Windows 7 and are all up-to-date. Help would be greatly appreciated

My advice and personal experiences with both wired and wireless connectivity, is if you wish to share files and internet connection, purchase a combined Modem/Router and not a seperate router to work along side your original modem. Your modem will send your router an ip address in turn your pc is sent one from your router and can get complicated; keep it simple! These are much easier to set up and control as one unit and if there are ever any connection problems you will know it's either a setting or a modem/router problem and not have to wonder ; is it the modem?; Router? settings? etc. As there are frequent loss of connections both internet and LAN it makes sense have one peice of equipment to maintain.

Thanks for the suggestion. Oddly enough, after 2-3 days, the laptops were suddenly able to connect again. Strange.

You should enter the "Wireless MAC Address" of the XBOX and not just the "MAC Address". You can see it on the system info of the XBOX settings.

there is a problem with your WEP key, means the password which is used to enter your router or network. simply delete the network from the network list and connect to the network again and insert the correct shared key.

Looking for the NETGEAR WNR1000 default password?
You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad
f you've forgotten the WNR1000 default password.
However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device,
the WNR1000 default password suddenly becomes very important.
For most versions of the NETGEAR WNR1000, the default password is password. As with most passwords,
the WNR1000 default password is case sensitive
Be sure to change the default router password on your WNR1000 to something more secure as soon as you're in.
Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WNR1000 password
hope this helps
