After changing it on the router page, you must reconnect to the wireless signal on each wireless computer put in the new password.

That is due to a problem with the way that Windows 7 & Vista manage wireless networks.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Make note of the exact type of encryption used (Example: WPA-PSK / AES)

- Click the Start button > Control Panel > Network & Sharing Center
- Click the Manage Wireless Networks link
- Highlight and remove the wireless profiles there currently
- Click the Add button
- Enter the network name
- Click the Advanced option button
- Manually select the level of encryption and security mode, then enter your password
- Connect to the new signal

Networking Extraordinaire :

How are those steps coming along?
