My Wireless Network is not being Recognized (After a Move)
Hi. After a recent move, my netgear wireless print server/router fell and the antenna broke. I finally have my desktop connection running, as well as my vonage router; however, my old wireless network remains undetectable. Does the broken antenna have anything to do with it? I would grealy appreciate any suggestions.
Thanks,
Josh

OK, thanks. A quick follow-up question. The wire from the Linksys router should go into the Internet port on the Netgear, right (as opposed to one of the Locals)?

Thanks
