I have had a Netgear modem for 3 years working wirelessly around the house without any problems, one day I could not get on the net, hours of trouble shooting still no access, my ISP can see the modem is connnected and working from their end.
I dug out an old D Link modem that was not a wireless modem and connected directly with the ethernet cable from modem to laptop, internet access was availible again. Cool.
So, I then connected my wireless modem directly with an ethernet cable, but still no internet access. I figured the modem was rat [bleep] so I went and bought a Netgear N150 wireless modem today, I hooked it up and still no internet, none wiresly or connected with ethernet cable??
I put the old D link modem on and connect with Eth cable, internet working fine.
Why is it I can get internet access with an old non wireless modem, but both wireless modems will not connect, either wirelsly or with ethernet cable?? I have tried 3 diff Eth cables, help desk got me to do all sorts of things even a command prompt something something reset reset txt enter in run as administrator mode?? ping tests everything 2 hours on the phone and still no internet with the wireless modems??
