    Tried this and that and it ended up being the new firmware for the router, downgraded and all is well now. What else happened was that the WPS light came on and stayed on....thanks again.

My wireless signal is indicated, it DOES NOT light up, no icon recognition at the bottom right for a signal, BUT the wireless router works for the desktops , 2 with NO problem

Try resetting it to factory default setttings. Use a paperclip to hold the reset button down in the back for 30 seconds. It will come up as "NETGEAR" with no security when it resets. Try to connect to it and see if everything works that way first, then re-set everything up as far as security passwords for the network and all. If it worked as NETGEAR with no security but not after you set up security, something isn't compatible.

Sorry but i forget my password

The default user name for this model router is admin and the default password is password. The default SSID is NETGEAR. You can verify your router settings by going to Click the wireless settings link and verify that the router settings are the same as those in the wireless computer. NOTE: The settings are case-sensitive - NetGear will not work in place of NETGEAR.
