      Configure router to allow 'home pc work'

      My 'Work at home' laptop connects via its own router, to my home router, which in turn is connected to the internet...

      This all worked fine on my previous router.

      However, few weeks back switched back to the Sky router (Netgear DG834GT) and now I cant connect.

      The Netgear router utility 'sees' the laptop etc.. but I guess it is blocking it somewhere. Have tried looking everywhere on all the available menus but cant find where I need to add or allow it.

      Anyone point me in the right direction??

      Thanks.

      Have you reset the security password on the laptop to match the Netgears? Remember the default setting for the Netgear is all capital letters, no numbers.
