Question about NetGear DG834G Router
My dad can access no problem with his laptop but i cannot. My laptop sees the network but when i try to connect it says "Wireless association failed because Windows (Vista) did not receive any response from the wireless router or access point" but the signal is full strength (my laptop is physically next to the router. The router is not set up to filter mac numbers or anything although my dad's mac address is registered. have tried restarting everything - this makes no difference. am currently hard wired into the router. The security is WEP, but given i can't even get through to enter the hexadecimal code I don't see how this can be the issue.
I couldn't connect to Xbox live very well. Today I updated the firmware to version
Tell you dad to get the latest firmware.

Just a guess. The Netgear may be transmitting that your pc cannot connect to. ie. there are 3 'formats' (for want of a better word) that go under the names B,G and N. I'm simplifying now, B is the original wireless system that we all used. G is the much faster system that most recent machines use and N is the newer system that your router does not use. Your router can use B and G or B or G. I'm guessing that it might be set to B only and your machine is G or N. Theoretically It shouldn't make much difference but I have heard of instances when the newer machine cannot connect.
Of course I may be completely wrong and it's something else. I had an instance where with 2 laptops in the same room only 1 would access the Netgear but the other (although it could see it and would not lock on) would lock on quite happily to an open network transmitting from an adjacent building. After some hair pulling and cussing, I changed the transmitter channel on the router from 10 to 2 (or something completely different) and suddenly both laptops would lock on to the netgear without any issues.
