Hello,
I have the netgear wgt624 v4 working fine in my home network, printers and windows XP. I just purchased a Toshiba running Windows 7 and it will not connect to the wireless network. Works fine at Starbucks but not a home. It sees the wireless but the error is "windows was not able to connect to wireless". Any ideas or help?

Connect the computer to the router with an ethernet cable.

See the literature which came with your router for how to access the user setup screens in the router. Once in go to wireless security and review or renew the wireless security type and password. WPA PSK TKIP is the most common security type in use.

Go to wireless mode and ensure that it's set to a protocol matching your computer's wireless adapter (mixed mode is a safe bet).

Disconnect ethernet cable.

Go to the computer's wireless networking setup screen and see if you can detect the router's SSID (wireless call sign). Select that network.

Apply the wireless security type and password to the computer's wireless networking setup screen.
