Hi There,

There is no universal formula for happiness. The cause for happiness is different for different people. It is as diverse as people and their priorities.

I can tell you what makes me happy everyday.

It's my dogs Ursa and Poppy greeting me at the door when I get home. They get so excited and happy to see me that anything that may have been bothering me is forgotten.

I hope you find find yours...

Best regards
Mike

The latest firmware release for that router is found HERE.
Be very careful to follow the instructions; especially I suggest connecting direct cable to your router to insure there are no interruptions in transmission. Since I don't have a USR I can't tell you where the current firmware number is located. However, the usual places are directly on the router itself, perhaps on the bottom or rear. Also check the manual, although usually manufacturers don't use this because many times they supply manuals for several models and don't want dated material. It wouldn't hurt to send an e-mail to USR support, most of these companies are pretty good about responding. My suggestion is to flash your firmware only if you have a problem and no other choice.
If your flash goes bad or is interrupted your router will be bricked.

Try to get to the Hp ..and download and install the driver for the printer into the windows 7 ...cause this may be the cause for what it isnt seen by the pc ..specially if they are in network ...the others seen it cause they have the xp driver ..but for this one you have to load the w 7 driver..
Also try to make the settings again if this is the only pc connected to the router ..
or ..if the driver is installed ..get to start ..printer and faxes..and run the add new printer wizard ..and look for the printer by name in the network ..(after you install the driver..

If you ever lose your settings or if your settings are changed and the router is not functioning properly, you can come to this area to restore your saved settings from the backup file you created. Click Browse to locate the backup settings file you previously created. When you have located it, click Restore and the settings saved within this file will be applied to the router. If you did not create a backup file, you may need to restore the factory default settings.
device3.gif Factory Settings If you ever want to erase all personal settings of your router, come to this area and click Reload to restore the factory default settings. All the current settings will be lost. If you change the router's configuration and it stops functioning properly you can reload the factory settings to fix it.
device3.gif The other method to restore the factory default settings is to press in and hold the RESET button on the Wireless MAXg Router for between five and ten seconds. You will lose all of your personal settings if you restore the factory default settings. You might need to do this if you are unable to access the Web User Interface or have forgotten your password.

1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Typically, a good router will allow you to configure it only bvia a wired connection, to prevent unauthorized remote users trying to hack it.
Please try using a network cable (patch cord) to connect to the router's LAN socket directly and attempt reconfiguration then.

What do you mean by it won't work? What issue are you having and how long have you owned this unit? How long have you had this problem? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

1. this could be the network itself
Bandwidth overload or out of balance.
This is a server issue sometime with gaming servers.
2. It could be your system is too close to a cell phone or cordless phone or digital TV. Try moving the unit about 20 ft away and see it you get better signal strength.

I wonder if your router is set to perform MAC address filtering. If so, you have to either find the MAC address of the iPhone's wireless card and add it to your router's appropriate list, or set your router to not filter by MAC addresses.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos
