I have 2 identical Westel 7500 DSL modem/routers. One I have been using for11 years. The other is my backup in case something goes wrong with my first one. Note: Every two years, I "power up" the backup for a little while.
I decided to switch my "backup" modem and use that for now on. I made sure that the WiFi settings are EXACTLY the same (DOUBLE CHECKED). That includes the Channel number (11) and every bit of the Advance settings. The ONLY difference between the two is the WEP key. Since WPA is selected, I figured the WEP key difference should not mater.
WIFI ISSUE MYSTERY:
Note: I have SSID broadcasting turned OFF on both units.
Using my spare modem/router, I have NO trouble connecting via my Samsung tablets (WiFi). I have NO trouble WiFi connecting via 2 Roku streaming sticks on TVs.
However, I can NOT connect using 3 laptops (WiFi) that I use to connect (WiFi) to the "original" modem/router!!!!!!
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thank You in advance, John
