Re: can't wireless connect to netgear router
With the router powered on, use a pen or paper clip to hold the "Reset" button for at least 10 seconds, this will reset the router to default settings and you can start over with setting your encryption protocols. Make sure to note the WEP/WAP key you assign.

What is your operating system (Vista/XP, older Windows)? Have you turned on the router's wireless router radio from the computer that is connecting? (Login to the router's setup page at 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on the router) and go to Advanced menu and click Wireless Settings.) While you are there, enable the SSID Broadcast (another checkbox hust below the one for Wireless Router Radio). Now check if your laptop can see the router.
