Modem works but routers won't

  1. A couple of days ago my wireless network suddenly went down. At first I assumed it must be a problem with the router (an old Netgear MR814) since it's so old, but now I've tried it with a different one (an apple Air Port Express) and that doesn't work either.

    I have a Motorola SB5101 Surfboard cable modem, and used a wired connection there's no problem - I've tried it with two different laptops & the both recognize the connection.

    Any ideas what might be happening here?

    So I am to assume it is only wireless problems. Try finding a firmware upgrade for the modem and router.
