The Problem: I "upgraded" to a netgear wireless super-G router.

Orginal set up was d-link "b" router which worked fine. Changed to the Netgear router and add eTrust internet Security suite to one of two laptops using the router, and Norton Inernet Security Suite to a wired PC.

Now BOTH wired and wireless internet connections gets repeatedly dropped, although I have good signal (shows connection to my network).

Also occasionally get a message about an IP error conflict, that I thinks is when I first power up another PC on the lan.

I was thinking of trying to delete everything and start over setting up a workgroup.

If it's wireless drops, I doubt that reconfiguration of the workgroup is the answer. Did you check for any firmware upgrades for your new router?

First off, why not connect the older router and make sure it all works like it used to? Also, adding all the security applications may have been one factor. Have you disabled the security applications to see if that helps?

Can't switch back to the old router, I gave it away.

Did switch off eTrust security and did not seem to help.

The reason I was thinking of rebuilding was that the newer laptop can't see the shared printer, frequently I can not see shared folders, and the IP error messages.

Also when I built this network first on a win98 pc using "Netbuoy" and the win98 machine I no longer have.
