You need to ensure that either all your devices are "N" capable or to set the router to MIXED mode.

Routers should be initially set up from a WIRED computer and not a wireless one (states in the instructions on almost all routers)

Once you are set up to accomodate a mix of wireless if thats whatyou have then depending on how you set up your security a single passord for all would in most cases be adequate.

If only one computer can get on the net then the issue is NOT you isp (provider) and you have to go back to the router.

If NO computers can get on the net then it may be your ISP or you have not set your login details up properly in the router which takes care of all that for you.

Losing internet connection when I try to connect laptop to wireless router


Your cloning the mac address - thats the problem. It should use it's own mac address to connect to the modem. You need to power down the modem, then repower after a minute or so to let it connect to the new mac address. The problem you are seeing is due to network collisions betweenj the desktop and the router with the modem.
