    i have a netgear router model wgr614 v6 where my desktop is connected.i also
    have an hp laptop that i succesfully connected once in the past but now after
    3 months i tryed to connect again but it is not working.i put all the right
    wireless settings but it is still not connecting to the router .it says "
    acquiring network address" but never other problem is that if i
    try to reinstall the router trough the installation disk it doesnt let me do
    so because in the middle of the installation it asks me to put the admin and
    password that i dont remember and there is no way i can get it back.please
    help me because otherwise i feel i might need to buy another router.
    thank you

    You might try temporarily disabling the firewall on the Hp and see if you
    can connect. Generally this kind of problem is related to a firewall setting
    or a security setting. Your netgear router may have MAC list filtering
    enabled, and the Hp might not be on the list. Generally there is a way of
    resetting a wireless router back to factory defaults if you forget your
    password, you might want to check your manual on that.

  3. Hi

    Do a Hard reset to the Router (details in the manual) and it would revert to
    the original default settings with the original ID and Password as appears
    in the Manual.

    It would more beneficial for future needs to spend few minutes learning how
    to configure the Router manually through the web interface rather than using
