    I have 3 computers running XP, one running Windows 7 and 3 smart phones all connecting to a Netgear JWNR2000v1 Wireless- N 300 Router. All of them connected fine until about a month ago the XP machines all started having problems, until finally none of them would connect or could even detect the router at all. The smart phones and Windows 7 computer have never had a single problem connecting. My daughter has tried to use one of the XP machines at some coffee shops with no success, I assume they are "N" networks. I pulled out an old "G" router and they can all connect to that one without a problem. The XP machines are all different, one Compaq, one Dell, and one Toshiba. None of them have any detectable viruses, using Eset and Windows Security Essentials. Any ideas?

    Type the following command:

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
