Question about NetGear RangeMax WPN824 Wireless Router (WPN824NAR)
Internet worked fine this morning. Went to check mail this afternoon on wireless laptops & found that there was no connection. Did the normal resetting of router but still cannot connect on laptops. Internet on desktop works fine, hence this post.
Also tried resetting the network completely but to no avail. Network name shows up in list & is detected, sometimes will ask for network key, will attempt to connect but then we get message/Windows bubble saying it cannot connect to the network. My HP Vista Ultimate laptop says it does not receive a return signal from the router, and our XP Toshiba says that it cannot connect to the network, or "there might be interference between this computer & the network access point or the network is refusing access to this computer". It offers the option to repair but then cannot reset the IP address.
We've exhausted all of our options & are completely lost. I need the wireless laptop for business & need things up & running again ASAP. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Thanks for the suggestion. Oddly enough, after 2-3 days, the laptops were suddenly able to connect again. Strange.

First of all make sure that the wireless settings of the router match the settings of your wireless computer.
make sure also that there are no friewall or security programs running in your computer because they can interfere with the wireless connection as well.
