Try recycling the router by unplugging it then after 20 seconds plug it
back in. See if you can stay connected. If not, unplug the modem and the
router, then plug the modem in and let it cycle up for about a minute
or two, then plug the router in and let it cycle up.
If you turn your computer and router off at night, then when you turn
them back on, if the router boots up before the modem, it will have
connection problems. A power outage in the house causes the same thing
if the router cycles up before the modem.
This is mostly because it has not adapted to the changes when using another device aside from the router, especially a router. What I have done with internet modems is when you are removing a router, or if you are installing a router is allow that modem to be shut down for about 10 - 20 minutes before you use other devices it does not recognize right away.
Hi, There have been some compatibility issues with certain wireless cards. First try (for a short time) to remove any encryption you have set up on your wireless system. If the laptop logs on now, this is the problem I've confronted a few times. Try the different types of encryption that your router provides. If that doesn't work, I'd send the Netgear back (if its under warranty) explaining the problem. If there is no help there, maybe you should get the same model of router as next door. Hope this helps
Have you tried power cycling the router and the modem? if not:
1. Turn off your modem and router by unplugging the power cord at the back of the devices.
2. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the modem to the router vice versa
3. After a minute, replug the power cord at the back of your modem then reconnect the ethernet cable at the back of the modem as well.
4. After a minute, replug the power cord and the ethernet cable at the back of your router.
5. Try to test the connection.
Warning: You can reset the router if you know that you can reconfigure it back to connect to the internet. If you don't know how to set the router back to connect to the internet, it would be ok to you to not to do step 6.
6. If it didn't work, You can reset the modem. Press the reset button at the back of your router while it's turned on, wait for 15 seconds after that, unplug the power cord at the back of the router while the reset button is still pressed, wait for 15 seconds after that, replug the power cord at the back of your router while the reset button is still pressed, wait for 15 seconds again then release the reset button after 15 seconds.
7. Reconfigure your router's settings to communicate to your modem. ( I don't know if you have cable internet connection, but if so, you can just clone the mac address of your modem to connect to the server, if you are using DSL if it's asking for a username and passowrd, just use the PPPoE type of configuration in your router)
8. If it failed, try to update the firmware of your router.
Try holding the reset button for 10 seconds, while holding the reset button in, unplug it for 10 seconds, plug it back in, but don't let go of the reset button for another 10 seconds. Respond with any results.

I just upgraded from firmware version 1.01.14 to 1.01.22 and I have the same problem, the router just keeps resetting itself. I think the solution is to go back to the old firmware, but I haven't been able to find a copy yet, Once I find firmware version 1.01.14 for the WRT54GX2 router. I will let you know if this is the solution... :) WRT54GX2
