    Sorry, but I couldn't find a PC folder to put this in. Anyway, I'm at a relative's house who has a netgear wireles router that he runs his home network on.His laptop and pc (windows vista, the one the cable modem and netgear router are hooked up to) can connect to the internet fine. When I try to use anything else, the devce (iphone, nintendo 3ds) sees the network and asks for a password. The password the relative claims is correct, does not work. I'm trying to set up a simple guest network with no password for internet access only but its not working. Does anyone have experience doing this on pcs that can give me very basic instructions for setting this upand maybe then I can see what I am doing wrong. Googling is just not helping. Thank you.

    Check his router to see if it has MAC Address filtering enabled.

    You can manually configure the IP address, gateway and DNS, then try again.

    Have him log into the router so you can dig around in the settings to see what the issue is.
