Hi I have this configuration for my home network:
Netgear router-->netgear wireless range extender
The range extender has an Ethernet port on it as well as wireless access so it is as follows:
Range extender wireless-->laptop, desktop, android, ipod
range extender wired--> lynksis router--> pioneer receiver, seagate home network drive.

All the devices can see the network and connect to it but none have access to the internet. Please help

Sorry forgot that tidbit the modem is connected to the first router so it should be as follows:
modem-->Netgear router-->netgear wireless range extender
The range extender has an Ethernet port on it as well as wireless access so it is as follows:
Range extender wireless-->laptop, desktop, android, ipod
range extender wired--> lynksis router--> pioneer receiver, seagate home network drive.

I can connect to it but no internet access as well. Which is weird it was working fine yesterday. I went into the extender and changed the password and name for the wireless for just the extender would that affect anything?

yeah, probably. You have a complicated network config. First thing to do is see if you can get a internet connection with just a modem and a pc.

Okay I changed everything back to its default name and everything can connect fine except my laptop. Although it can still see the network just no internet access. But the phone, network drive, desktop, ipod, extender, 2nd router, and receiver are all running fine

Even my ps3 can detect the laptop on the network but no internet connection.

What happened when you plugged a computer directly to the modem and had everything else shut off?

It keeps telling me the network ip is invalid. I dont understand why because everything else is connected fine.

The network is invalid? The modem connects to your ISP's network. If your ISP's network is invalid, nothing else is going to connect. The problem lies with your modem's config

Im sorry you may have read over that part but I did post it. I changed the password on the extender back to match the password on the modem/router (original ones) and I got access to it and have everything connected to it but my Laptop. My laptop will connect to the original router just not to the extender.

Nope wired connection yields the same results. It can identify and connect to the wifi/lan but no internet access.

Okay so I did a little looking into it and on my laptop I have a mac address changer called Technitium MAC Address Changer. Disabling the program allowed conection to the wifi that I was not able to connect to before. So thats good.

The new problem now is that there are 2 wifi networks in my home. So far ive been able to connect to one or the other and not both at the same time.(without changing my mac address)
The mac address changer was being used to allow my laptop to connect to the second wifi in the house because on that router my laptops mac address was banned somehow and I dont know the password to change it.

Do you see any solution to this?

Wireless connects to the strongest signal automatically. No, that I don't see any solution to. As far as your mac address being banned, going into the router's setup menu and check to see if "filter by mac address" is turned on.
