I am not too familiar with NetGear routers, but all linksys routers have mac address filters, this allows the router to only accept connections from previously stated mac addresses. I never had to do such a thing for my wireless printer, but this could be the problem. Usually wireless printers just ask for a security code (WEP/etc.) and connect on their own. Sorry i cant be anymore direct.

Connecting hp712c to hp g7 notebook via netgear wnr 2000?

To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

4 Steps to Disable MAC Filtering on Netgear Router

The MAC filtering tool with a Netgear wireless router generates an access list based on the individual Media Access Control numbers that you connect. Because each computer-based networking device has a solve MAC address, the MAC filtering should stop unauthorized users from connecting to the Wi-Fi network. However, due to the instructions required to locate the networking device MAC address, you might get it onerous or inconvenient to add new systems to the network. In such situations, you should turn off MAC filtering and choose the other security approaches like WPA 2 encryption.

Note: - To get additional information, you can call on the Netgear customer service number and seek the help.

    1.Launch the web browser on your computer connected to the router through a wireless or wired connection. Input the following URL '' or '' in the address bar and press the 'Enter' key to show a login window.
    2.Input the 'admin' under the 'User Name' box. Input the password you chose when you configure the Netgear router. If you didn't choose a custom password, enter 'password' to sign in. Press the 'Enter' key to show the Netgear router's main menu.
    3.Click the 'Wireless Settings' button under the 'Advanced heading' tab on the left menu bar. Select to click on the 'Setup Access List' option near the end of the page. It directs you to the 'Wireless Card Access List' page.
    4.Remove the check mark of 'Turn Access Control On' box at the upper of the page. Click on the 'Apply' option to save and apply the changes.
    However, if you suspect that anyone has accessed your Wi-Fi password or you have any kinds of functional or technical issues in connecting to the Internet using your Netgear router, you should directly speak with the experts regarding your router glitches and get them resolved as quickly as possible. At such time, call at the certified Netgear customer support number available on the ContactforService directory site.

Wireless Netnotwork Connectivity issues

At last, I have finally resolved the issue, sometimes the solution is so somple that you totally miss the solution. It was as simple as the Windows Firewall ( switch it on ), I have a Mcafee security center protecting my network and it wouldn't let me connect with additional protection. Also, I entered the wrong mac address on the routers (access control) settings. I'm now on the internet. Obviously I have to big up Mcafee for excellent security controls. So if anybody else ever has the same problem follow these simple steps.

  1. Check all of the settings that I described in the original question
  2. Make sure Firwall settings are correct (& active).
  3. Check your routers homepage ( access control truly works).
  4. Make sure you you enter the correct MAC address (use the MAC address of the wireless network adapter, that's what connect you to a network) i.e. 00-01-a2-11-22
