    Netgear Router Not Connecting to Internet Properly
    I have have this netgear mr814 router for 3 1/2 years. I have used this in 3 different locations. When I set it up at its current location, it's causing problems. When working wirelessly, each time I try to log on to a website, I get an error message to the effect "... can't find server". When I press refresh (sometimes several times) it will work. This is frustrating to do each time I log on to a site.

    I tried reseting the router and reinstalling, but this didn't work. Do you have any suggestions?

    Perhaps you have a strong signal from another nearby wireless router that is causing interference with yours. You might try forcing your router to use a different channel (i.e. 1, 6, or 11) than the current one.

    Good Luck
