I was having internet issues. Modem is def. not the problem. I did a factory reset on my Netgear R6400 router. I changed the network names (for the 2.4 and 5 ghz) and the password. None of my devices that used to use the wifi now accept the new password. Also, my devices are seeing both the generic network names (Netgear23 and Netgear23-5g) AND the new name I've given the network.

If you gave the same SSID's as previously you'd, probably, have to "forget" the network, reboot and then re-connect with the new password.

Thank you for your reply. I figured out that I hadn't changed the password for the network, because it calls the password the "pre-shared key," and I didn't realize that. I guess I changed my password for the website instead of the network. :rolleyes:
