My wireless internet was running very slow. I have 4 computers on my home network.I Unplugged my modem and router several times and that did no good.  I reset my router by pressing the reset button on the back with a pin. I renamed my network and got 2 of my computers back on. one by the security key and the other by the pin. I can't get the other 2 on by any means.

I have Netflix with Roku that I can't get on either by using the security key that is pre-listed and the correct one. It recognizes the new network but won't activate

The other 2 computers, one is WIndows 7 home and the other is Windows XP. They recognize the name of the wireless also. Just tells me to re enter security key. I tried entering an old key they said to enter for old computers. The modem works great hardwired and the other 2 computers on it are fine. I did notice (I might be missing something here) but I thought there used to be 2 icons flashing on the router before (1 and 2) I moved the wires around to different ports.
