      Thumbs up need help with wireless router ...

      1. Got two laptops , two routers ,

      2. One lap top connects fine to both routers

      3. Other laptop dont connect to one of them .

      4. Both are netgears , revisions unimportant since ive narrowed the hassle down some what .

      5. So im assuming somthing isnt letting one laptop connect to this router for some reason - but itll connect to the other one - other ones on a post office phone line kinda internet.

      what needs to be changed on this router for the laptop to go wireless both work fine by the ethernet cable to the router method.

      Tried a reset - same situation. - is it a setting somewhere within the sky / admin login web page ? is it a setting on this page?

      thanks for the help..

      What security are you using?

      Have you tried changing the Channel on the router. Log into the router settings and click the wireless link. Make sure both routers are not using the same channel.

      If both routers have the wireless switched on this could cause a lot of interference, drop outs, slow connection etc.

      Try disabling the security in the router, see if you can connect.
