The history of the 3 routers. The Belkin's was hooked up with the Mac when I bought it it in 2007. Everything was okay even after we moved to another neighborhood. Maybe the problem of no connection from the Belkin it was dropped a few times. So I tossed it away. Bought Winstar router from Monoprice. In the specifications it says OS Compatibility Windows 95 & later, Mac OS X 10.0.x and later. Systems Requirements: Internet Browser (Internet Explorer) In Quick guide it had a Windows web site for reference that's probably the problem there. I keep enter my niece's name and password after she gave it to me and it still denies me. She has Netgear.
