Mac/PC wireless router problems

By DiNish ·
Any Mac/iphone gurus out there.. I have a wireless router (Netgear). It was bought 3 years ago and they have stopped making it.

a year ago.. my mac would say it is connected to the net using our router But I couldn't access the web.

My new iphone is also not able to connect to the net using our wifi. Airport in mac and the iphone says it is connected to our wifi.

But my HP laptop and my android phone are able to connect to the net via our router with no issues.

I tried resetting the router.. connecting them again and it is still not working for mac/iphone 4 but works for android/HP.

What security settings are you using?

WPA, WEP, none??

What model of Netgear router?

The only show-stopper on the iPhone is that the WPA passphrase is case sensitive, so the iphone will fail to authenticate if it's not the same as the router setting.

Have you tried it with encryption disabled?

IP Info?

Open a cmd line prompt and type in ipconfig /all.

Give us that info on the Mac and on the HP.
