Set this thing up this morning on the PC. Installation went like a dream. I had replaced a WBR - T2 which I thought was unstable.
I have recorded all usernames and passwords for the Netgear so I proceded then to log on to the Laptop. Here's the problem. I had chosen wireless security WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK since the instructions said this was the most secure and the Laptop is a 2007 model so should support this but I cannot find it.
Now when I try to access the router to change the settings, my passwords are rejected though I am sure I have noted them correctly.
So can I uninstall the router, unplug it and start again using WEP which the laptop does support.
Gone on a bit !

yes....if by uninstall you mean reset it back to factory defaults....if you look in the manual for your router you should be able to find the steps....MOST routers you hold in the little reset button on the back while plugging in the power and it will reset it back to the way it shipped
