Hello All -- I woke up to a probem using my Netgear Router. Yesterday all was fine. My router was working and all wireless devices were connected.. Today discovered none of them are connected. It is a mix of devices which includes XP laptop, Vista laptop and PS3.

I tried to reapply my router settings to the devices no luck.Just states unable to connect
I re did my settings on my router which are currently set to:
WPA2 with my passphrase, also tried WPA and no authentication - no luck.

Just not understanding what changed while the household was asleep (-:

I am using a Netgear router, checked firmware, which is current.
All devices see the router with full signal strength but cannot connect.

Any information would be GREATly appreciated..

Try re booting the modem and router in that order letting each device start completely before starting the next. Then open a cmd window and do ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew on a device to see if it solves the issue.
