Question about NetGear DG834G Router
This is going to be one of those frustating things that is hard to solve - or it will just solve itself!
I was out doing a service call with a client with the same router. Accidentally the router had been reset and the SSID had returned to netgear and the security had been turned off.
Resetting the SSID and wireless security is straightforward and at the end I could connect easily with my iPod Touch (1st gen) - however, the client's eMac couldn't connect - he constantly got "It was not possible to connect" messages. Noting that there were about a dozen other transmitters of varying strengths being picked up I decided to change the channel that the netgear was using. This worked - he could now connect but the emac kept saying that the password he was sending was incorrect. (I'm still connected). After some umming and arring we decided to switch the password back to one that had been using when the system was first installed. Now he can connect but my pod says "It was not possible to connect" - it didn't even ask for the password - it just rejected out of hand - all the other transmitters asked for the password. Even rebooting the pod had no effect.
Anyway - the job was done as it was getting him reconnected that was the issue.
