Understandably...First after your firmware update, login to your router, make sure your settings are right, make sure your wireless settings are still the same. verify its connected to the Internet using the status page. next on your laptop, Connect to your Router., If your still having problems. Open a DOS command prompt, and type "ping google.com" do you get replys?

Your not giving enough information, your saying "I still cant connect" and that isnt telling us much. How cant you connect? what cant you connect to? What steps did you take? Did you follow the advice given in previous posts and if so which ones and what was the outcome? You have to be more descriptive.

i followed everything you said....the computer downstairs can not get a signal. The computer upstairs (laptop), I right click on the wireless network icon and open available networks. I double click on mine and it asks for the key. I generated the key when I went into the router from my main computer. I type the key in twice and click connect. then it says please wait while Windows connects to the 'Wolfman' network. Then it just hangs. I tried turning the firewall off in the router. I tried rebooting the router. Nothing. I never had these issues before.

So it was seeing the wireless router, it sounds like perhaps an issue with encryption, let us know if the new router fixed it.
