    Wireless Connectivity Problem

    I have a Century Link Modem, a Netgear A6210 wireless connector. Five other computers connect fine and access the internet using the same A6210 connector. I installed the latest software for the A6210 and when installed it see the modem, and the neighbors modems. When I put the password in to connect to the modem, it connects at 144 Mbps and there is no internet. The message on the computer is "secured, no internet". The connection diagram from the Netgear Genie shows a padlock over the link to the modem and a red, dotted line with a red "X" thru the dotted line going to the internet. Netgear tested the A6210 and we also used the A6210 that is on this desktop with no change. They say it is the modem, yet I have 5 other desktops running fine! I think it is Windows 10. I have Win 10 Pro, x64 bit, 32 gigs ram, 1 gig video, 5 hard drives, 2 DVD's.

    Any suggestions PLEASE!
    Thanks Stu

    Okay, solved. It was that Windows turned the firewall on and blocked all internet action.
