    I have a Netgear wgt624 wireless router. I tried creating a home wireless network, but I can't connect to the internet with my laptop. I can connect to the router perfectly fine (computer shows excellent 54.0 mbps connection on the task bar), and I can connect to the router settings page. I tried connecting the router to the laptop with an ethernet cable and it still didnt work. I tired connecting my home PC directly to the router and the net still won't work. If I unplug the router and connect it directly to my laptop, it works fine. Can anyone offer any advice for this issue? (I've tried resetting the router). Thanks.

    Did you power cycle the broadband modem? When you change the device connected to it, you MUST cycle power on the modem.

    Try cloning the laptop's MAC address to the router.
