Multiple Networks on the same router?

By Devonzorz ·
Ok so I am having a problem personally with my computer and possibly my wireless router. I was messing with port forwarding and some other things a while back and ended up stopping, defaulting my settings on my netgear router and such.
Problem I'm having: My wireless that I have connected to for a long time is no longer called just "Netgear" It's called "Netgear 4" Which I have been told is confusing my computer/or router. When I get online on a webpage, as I'm going to another webpage, my internet will "go down"/I can't connect to the webpage. From there I have to disconnect from the network that still says I'm connected and DO have internet, and reconnect, But it goes back down fast. On skype with some of my friends while I'm having to say "give me a second, my internet went down" sounds stupid because, again. I AM connected and AM talking to them. Another problem that it is also causing is on my xbox, my NAT is set to moderate, which it wasn't before which I was told that my router or network is confused also. Any feedback would help..

Switch on the back of it?

Push the little Button and it will return the unit to the Factory Defaults from which point you can recommence the setup again.

if you just try to change things with a badly messed up Router just about anything can and will happen and as most times the problems are simply screwy you can spend hundreds of hours trying to fix something that can not be fixed that way.

Also with most Domestic Routers they suffer from Spikes on the Mains and regularly need to be disconnected and allowed to completely power down so that the Capacitors inside them discharge and allow the settings to return to what is set as apposed to what a Spike has caused the thing to read and think is correct.
