Harsh realm. You have to reset the MacBook, or the Netgear? I mean, what happens...you can't even surf to a different site, or the browser freezes, or both browser and iChat? Because I think it might be handy to narrow this down to an iChat or Safari issue.

Then set the problem category to address any unknown problem after googling for iChat/Facebook issues...you know?

Most new routers now a days need to be connected to with a network cable first, login to the router console and setup the wireless and wireless security before they will operate. you will want to login to your routers web interface. looks like this screen and work with the wireless menud5d6fb6.png

Hello

more information is needed to answer your problem.

Is this a laptop? Brand and model please? Also do you have a wireless router in the house? Has anything been done to it yet?

Do you know the name of the network you should be connecting to?

I need a toll free number to call with help on how to hook up my wireless router to my laptop and make my internet work


try the website manufacturer of your wireless router, dlink, linksys, netgear... they the ones you want to speak to... also.. if you just purchased the router.. installation instructions are usually ready to walk you through the setup process from beginning to end if you have not try those..
my suggestion is for you to have the computer directly connected to the wireless router and make sure your internet is working there... then give him a call.. they will let you know how to set up the wireless connection but you may want to make sure you can access the router from your computer and it would be easier just to have it connected direclty to the computer first, then after is configured you can try to stablish a connection wirelessly...

If you're in the US, go to this page and download the EasyLink Connect software.

http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_CASupport_C1&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1166859678292&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=7829277881B04

Do the firmware upgrade as well, on the same page.

Outside of the US, start at http://support.linksys.com and select your country, then choose Technical Support.

It's important to use software meant for your country.

I use remote desktop, winxp profess. Every so often the router hangs up eliminating remote access until the netgear MR814 router is rebooted. Is there any way I can reboot this wireless router remotely? ...


i would go to your local radio shack or electronic dealership and buy an automatic timer, and plug your router into that. have set to shut off then turn on at certain times. it will work for just fine. you can get them at kmart or pretty much anywhere. if you not sure about the device im writing about just tell someone in the store to get you a timer that has 110 v plug and explain what you need it for . hope you find one, good luck
