Welcome to JustAnswer..My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am a member of the expert community here.. do the followingWith the router powered on.. Turn the router around.. There is a small small hole.. Inside that hole is a reset button.. You will need something small like an unfolded paperclip, or, sometimes the tip of an inkpen will work. Press into the hole, and press the reset button inside the hole untill the routers lights flash at once for a second together, then go out..

I successfully went wireless on the MacBook Pro, on both the Mac and PC sides (Boot Camp, split hard drive).
I cannot get my daughter's laptop onto the wireless router. Her computer works when I have the ethernet cable plugged in. I tried the name of my wireless network plus the security key that worked on my Mac and it is not working on her Dell laptop.
You did set the wireless password XXXXX yes? And its the new wireless password XXXXX entered on your daughters dell, and thats not working? What happens, or what does it say when you try to connect?
I got it solved with a driver from one computer to another, on my thumb drive.
