NETGEAR Wireless N-300 WNR2000 Router Issue


My router is currently having a issue. For about a day since I got this router and set it up it was working GREAT but after about one day of use, my iPhone, Laptop, PlayStation 3 and other home computer would still be able to pick up the signal (AT 100%) but when I would try to connect so I can use anything online it would just either keep asking for the router password even though I know I'm giving the right one or it will just saying connecting.... (forever) but never actually connects. Does anybody know why this is happening?

P.S. If I press the power button on the back of my router to restart it, every device is able to connect to the router again but it's kind of annoying to restart the router every time I want to connect something to it wirelessly... Any help?

It works almost flawlessly. I have yet to reset it in months.


1. I have it setup per this forum's sticky.
2. Which some ask where that is so I'll summarize it.
a. Latest firmware.
b. Stock settings except.
b1. Simple SSID and broadcast it.
b2. WPA security.

That's it!

Sorry no.

In reply to: THANKS!

I never had this issue. But I along with another member wrote the forum sticky (which is the top posts in this forum.) Some don't want to look for it so I summarized it. The reason I don't have many issues is likely because I use that advice.

I searched for the sticky and still cant find it. Sad

It's the top posts in this forum. The ones with the little sticky on it. I summarized it because many don't want to learn about the forums.
