    I have a wireless network set up with 3 desktops and a laptop on it, one desktop is still cabled and not wireless. My son has a PS2 hooked to the router as well for online games. I added the fourth desktop today and was able to get online for a short time but now can't get online, I get the dreaded, check your network connection page on that desktop.

    He can't get online with his PS2. The desktop is wireless, just installed it today. I open up the Netgear connection on the desktop that won't connect and there is no connection, I click connect and it says the signal is excellent, but then i can't get online. I have checked the cable for the PS2 and find nothing wrong with it.

    The other desktops (one wireless and one not) and laptop are fine, so I am clueless as to what is going on, I have unplugged and plugged in the cable, don't know what else to try for the wireless.

    I have DSL, so I have a router from the provider, but there wasn't enough ports, I have a network printer also, so I added a second Netgear router. One port on the router from the provider has never worked. I also have a wireless access point for my laptop which is new and came wireless.

    Where do I begin to figure out the problem?

    We fixed it, by resetting the router. The desktop and PS2 work now.
