HP Laptops won't recognize Belkin Wireless-G Router

I have problems with the wireless connectivity of my three laptops. Two are HP and one that works is an Acer. I am having a problem with the two HP's. When I turn them on and try to connect to the network, they do not recognize my new network. I have restarted and rebooted the router, I have set a new security password and wireless network, but the HP's recognize my neighbors secured Linksys, and my other neighbors unsecure network(both with poor signal strength) but doesn't recognize mine. Yet when I connect to my Acer laptop, it recognized the network, I signed in and entered my password and now my Acer is fine, yet both my HP laptops, nothing. Rebooting, restarting, updating drivers, reconfiguring, nothing seems to work. Just a note, the HP's were working fine, till I had to reset, reboot, reconfigure my router. Any idea's???????????

Re: HP Laptops won't recognize Belkin Wireless-G Router

Some Belkin 802.11g wireless-routers implemented a "turbo" or "108 Mbps" mode that is not compatible with the 802.11g standard.  Check to see if anything like this is enabled on your Belkin and if so, turn it off.

Re: HP Laptops won't recognize Belkin Wireless-G Router

Thanks for the quick reply. I have the Belkin F5D7230-4 Router. I don't see anything like that in any of the Belkin Tech pages that I looked at. The problem is, both these Laptops were recognizing the belkin for over a year now. We had a thunderstorm the other day, and all of a sudden the router had to be reset. When I did that without the security, the HP's recognized it, but it would drop the signal. Then I would have to reboot again. I added the security, and it doesn't even recognize the router now. I also found out with my son that his Wii and PS3 also aren't recognizing the router. For the time being, I have contacted Belkin to send me a new one. i will see if thats the problem. Thanks again.
