    I have moved and now have an AT&T Uverse modem/router. I am trying to re-setup my WGA600N. This modem/router has a Network Key that before I did not have one. In trying to get it working I cannot find anywhere to put in the Network Key.

    Will this work with my new modem/router?

    Sure, I don't see why not. But you can't connect to it wirelessly now since your network has acquired a key.

    Try plugging it in directly to your PCs ethernet port and then enter the new key after you log in.

    Or, reset the WGA... Imthink you push the reset button for five seconds while plugged in. Then reset your network settings and go through the setup routine again.

    I did do the reset button last night. I have not found the new network settings yet. With my Linksys router the settings was easy to find. But with the new modem/router or with Windows 7 I have not found them yet on my main PC. My old setup was XP.

    The WGA600N requires a 30 second reset to defaults of 192.168.1.250 and a password of 'admin' (no user). At this point you should be able to connect it to a switch port near an HR and program it with the HR or connect to a PC with a 192.168.1.x address to program.

    (I found references to both a 10 second reset and 30 second. . .)

    Thanks for correcting me. I didn't think it was that long but I defer to your superior research skills :)

    Not really correcting you, I always err on the high side unless there's some secondary reset mode.

    Does the new router have a WPS (wifi protected setup) button? If so, that is the easiest way to go (no need to enter a key).

    No, but I was able to find my wireless network manually and input the WPA key. But this still did not work. It has to do with the IP, gateway, etc. addresses I think.
