My laptop works on a netgear router at home. I want to connect the laptop to another netgear router at a friend's house. I need an authorisation code but my friend cant remember it. Is there for example any way of finding the code by using my friend's laptop
You can have your friend log into the router with their laptop and check the setting in the router. Of course, your friend will need to remember what his password is for the router as well. If he doesnt remember that, then the only solution is to reset the router to the default.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The Netgear site should have to software to download, but with the Router connected to the computer you really should be able to connect to the router's onboard software by, using Web Address http://192.168.1.1 and logging in to the router. Use User Name admin and leave the password blank. Go ahead and set up all the goodies you need, like Security and Pass Codes. I have4 bee4n using a Netgear Router in my home network for many years and have no complaints! This software is the exact same software they have on the setup disk.
These are some reasons why your new Hp laptop can't connect through your Netgear Router is because your Router has a security that used a password to connect to your router or the ip address of your desktop and Dell laptop is already setup to the router to work with internet.
More information is needed.
Is the 'WAN' port on the Netgear router connected to anything?
How many friends will come over at the same time?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Linksys? How many ports are "free" ?
How many 'LAN' ports are on the Netgaear? How many ports are "free" ?
How many "spare" Ethernet cables do you have?
Is your goal to provide computer-to-computer connectivity,
or are you just trying to provide Internet access for everybody?
If you are "downstairs", is the wireless signal from the "upstairs" router strong-enough to provide wireless coverage "downstairs"?

You can connect your friends computer easily to the router. Whenever your friends wireless switch has be switched on it wil detect the router and it will ask for the password to connect to the router. Hope you knows the password , by giving the password you can easily connect the system to the router
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.
Hi,I am going crazy! Just moved house and took my Netgear Wireless router with me. However, even though the hard wired base unit works, my wireless laptop can't access the internet - even though a full stregnth signal is there when i browse for wireless connections. Using Vista Home Premium. Help appreciated!
