2Wire wireless connections. Laptops are fine, but not phones or game consoles.

About two weeks ago my 2wire router/modem stopped connecting to m y wireless devices OTHER THAN my laptops. I have reset everything, rebooted the router, tried every security combination but even with WEP Open, nothing will connect. 

 

The odd thing is that the devize show in the IP allocation page, but as not connected on Port 4 - huh? Why not on wireless?

 

ANY thoughts are appreciated.

What model 2WIRE do you have and how old is it?

 

Did you try a factory reset? To do so, press and hold the reset button on the 2WIRE for 15 seconds.
