    Everything worked just fine before installing this new router 2 days ago!

    Installed a NetGear Wireless Router for my wife's VPN so she can access work
    with her wireless laptop.
    Since installing the router...the internet to the 2 desktop pc's in the
    house have little or no internet access.
    Sometimes we get email, sometimes just web sites. Seems to be intermittent
    at best.
    Here's what I have done to try and diagnose the problem:

    1. Shut down both pc's, then shutdown my DSL modem, then the router.
    2. Started modem first, waited, then started router, waited, then started up
    pc's. Hoping that the ip would release.
    3. Ran IPCONFIG to make sure the ISP IP is assigned correctly. It was.
    4. Back to square one ......still little/No internet access on desktops.
    Wife's laptop seems to be getting the same problem thru wireless.

    Please wife and kids are ready to kill me!
