Would you mind sharing a bit more??
OS on both machines, hardware specs. NIC (also wireless) properties.

Otherwise we can't do much.

Have you upgraded the firmware for the router?
Get it here and read the instructions thoroughly.

I also found http://www.martian.org/marty/archives/000956.html quite interesting in how to deal with a problem with this particular router.

Are you using Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) in Windows, or are the computers seperate entities on the network?

Try one more thing, before we call in the big guns for help Wink
On the laptop, click Start/Settings and in there click Network and Dial Up Connections
In there find your wireless connection and right click it. Select Properties
Click the button below the dialogue box that states the name of your Wireless Card, the one that says Configure
Click the Advanced tab and then find Link speed and duplex (could be worded differently though).
What is that setting in the drop down menu on the right? By default, it should be on Auto Detect or the highest speed that your card can support. In most cases it will be 100Mbit Full Duplex

After you've OK'd out, go to the Internet Protocol, in the properties dialogue.
Select it and press the Properties button.
What are the settings? It should be automatic across the board. Unless you set LAN IPs manually.

Good luck

Hello knin4c,

I read about 15 forums on 7 different websites, including Netgear's own forums site, about the Netgear MR814v2 router.  Unfortunately, I only read 2 success stories out of those 15, with very specific hardware configurations.  Here's an example: http://forum1.netgear.com/support/viewtopic.php?t=1362.  Honestly, based on what I've read, I would try to find your receipt and exchange your router.
