    Hi - new here (only just found this Forum) and thanks for your help.
    There is an old Netgear DG834GT in a place we visit regularly. OSX Yosemite was fine, Sierra whinged a bit but used to then connect and settle down. Just arrived with High Sierra and it went on OK first day. Second day refused to join. I've run the usual diagnostics and restarted etc. My iPad/Phone (Latest iOS) are on it just fine as is hubbies Windows 10 pc. We only need this modem to work for another year and it's real hard changing stuff provider doesn't speak English!
    Much thanks for any help
    Liza

    Hello and welcome.

    -Do you own this modem/router and have access to the configuration settings, or is it in a hotel/public location?
    -Is it using WEP, WPA-PSK, or WPA-802.1x wireless security?
    -Do you get any error messages when you try to connect?
    -Have you tried deleting the wireless network in  > System Preferences... > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced... > Wi-Fi Known Networks, then attempt to rejoin?
