    I'm having the same problem. In my case the problem seems to be intermittent, though. Sometimes the network name cannot be found and then later it suddenly appears.

    I'm having a similar roblem. reset will work only for a eriod of time. (day or two at the most) Problem getting worse over last couple months. Almost seems like a power-supply issue, but the wired computer is - usually - fine, though it has had the odd connection issue (slow, web page timeouts, etc). Usually I just unlug the unit and modem from the wall for ten seconds then its fine again.



    I noticed in the Log window of the SMC advanced set up that there are a lot of "Dail on Demand" events. I have no idea what this is, but it seems strange.

    I also have a SMC Barricade 7004VWBR. Connected to a Motorola cable modem provided by Comcast. Previously had a RCA cable modem, but due to signal drop, Comcast replaced it with the Motorola version. Have a couple laptops that have been using the wireless networking on the SMC for 4 years or so with no problems. Suddenly, we can't keep 2 wireless connections for more than 15 or 20 minutes. Did a factory reset, and the problem still persists - there is no problem when we use the wired connections. I need troubleshooting suggestions to find the root cause - the SMC logs don't appear to show logoffs or drops - all the PC's show up as connected as long as the IP lease endures.

Try resetting the router to refresh it's hardware, there should be a small reset button on the back somewhere , but be aware you may lose all configuration settings if you do do this , so if you're unsure what your are doing don't hesitate to ask.

My Dell desktop using Windows XP can't connect to my Belkin 5720 router but my laptop still works?


This sounds like a hardware failure, but just in case go to your computer Control Panel-Network Connections(Network and Sharing Center for Vista and above), and check your Network adapter settings. If your Network card is not showing, you may have a driver issue, or a bad NIC (Network Interface Card). It shouldn't matter that your router says" wireless hardware not detected", because you are hardwired from the computer to the router. I would check to see if you may have turned off, or blocked Ethernet connections on your router, I would then change my Cat5 (Ethernet) cable, and finally open the desktop and change out the NIC (Network Interface Card).

Worked fine up till yesterday now wireless wont work


The wireless cards in the computers need to be configured with the router's wireless settings so the computers can connect to the wireless router.
Resetting the wireless router back to the factory defaults will not let the computers connect to the wireless router without configuring the network card in the computers with the router's wireless settings.
I suggest you configure your wireless router with encryption settings to prevent unauthorized persons accessing your wireless network and Internet connection and your computers.

My wirless dissapear all the flasshing exept wirless line


Try RESETTING the Netgear back to the default setting and then configure it again.
To RESET the Netgear, power up the Netgear then press andhold the RESET button at the back of the router until all the LEDs flash. Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on yourcomputer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the admin password and configure thewireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

If this does not work then the Netgear routy is faulty, then you need a new wireless router.

Does not have wireless network adapter


If wireless network adapter does not show on your computer, you can try reinstalling the drivers for the network card. If after reinstalling the network card, it is still not recognized on the device manager, then i think you need to contact your computer manufacturer for possible hardware issue.

My laptop wont connect to my wireless router, but my desktop which is directly connect will?


You wirless switch has to be turned on for that to work. If that is not the issue then sometimes it it best to plug it in to the router and set it up that way. the computer already recognizes the computer and it finds it easier to set up the wirless.

If you want to make it real easy to manage your computers and the internet. Download a network manage ment program. I will help you connect you computers to the internet and much more. Network Magic Pro or Network Magic Essentials $30-$50.

I hope i have given you information that has helped you.
Thank you for the chance to help as well...

Second computer cant connet through the router..


You must reconfigure the wireless settings on the wireless computer. Go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Now you must delete all the prefered wireless network profile there. If they are all deleted, click on ADD > Click Add A Network in range of this computer > Select the signal from your router and connect. If it asks you for a network key, you should know that, otherwise, contact your router provider to determine what your network key is. That should solve it.

WiFi not recognized on Compaq laptop


this can happen sometimes, just go to network connections in control panel, right click on the wireless icon and click dissable (or press the rellevant button on your notebook) Restart pc and then right click on the icon again and select enable. There should be an icon in your taskbar, right click and select view network connections, and then see if your router is listed and click connect.
