Thank you for replying NetFixer. I have this router set as a wireless access point only. I have tried the setting that you suggest and I have tried a reset to factory defaults. The WPS light on the modem is still lit when I use WPA2. My tablet says it is a secure connection and cannot get an IP .
When you manually setup WPA(2), I think that the WPS light is supposed to be on with your Netgear router (I know that it does that with my WNR1000v2). I think that the WPS indicator lamp is just misnamed, it doesn't necessarily mean that WPS is active, only that wireless security is active. I assume that your mentioning a modem with a WPS indicator is just a typo, and is not referring to another piece of equipment?
a secure connection, and you won't get an IP address to a client using DHCP until that client is authenticated. That is how a secure WiFi connection works. Does your tablet support WPA2, and have you configured it for your connection?--
We can never have enough of nature.
We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
