Question about NetGear RangeMax NEXT WNR834B Wireless Router
My laptop will not only pick up my wirless rounter it will not any in the area. I have two others in the same room and are not having any problems I am having he problem with a Gateway / Vista.. when the cable company put in a new internet cable modem to add phone service is when its started. I would get booted everytime the phone would ring. now after two weeks I can't even fine a wirless connection on my laptop.. no other problems with the other two.. no one can find the problem.. thank you
Seeing as your other computers seem to work well I doubt it is your router that is at fault
I would start by checking all the wireless and network settings on the machine that is having problems.
I would turn off "wireless zero config" from the administrative tools / services first of all.
Then I would check the TCP/IP properties to ensure that "find ip address automatically" and " find dns servers automaticaly" are ticked.
As far as the problem starting since you went to VOIP it is possible but unlikely that that is the cause, and as far as getting booted when the phone rings that is for sure a cable company issue and certainly one you should follow up on as it sounds like a poor installation or faulty equipment (hope you are not a rogers or shaw customer as that would be your problem with the booting right there)
