    Reset all, by pressing the tiny button in the back of the units. Then go to add and remove software and reinstall the discs that came with those two devices.
    Then set your security to WPA using something easy for you and other users to remember.

    In our experience, a full removal and reinstall is cleaner, and takes much less time than diddling around to troubleshoot a problem.
    One more hint... if the devices are different brands, do not use their individual install discs... use standard installs from the internet suggestions.
