It does not give a connect option only status and disconnect

ok, this means its already connected to a wireless network

No it was conn ected to the old router and I have now connected a new one

Is the new one powered on?
And you can't have two connected at the same time...

Yes the new on eis powered on

ok, but you cant connect two routers at the same time, you need to plug the cables in from the old one into the new one.
Then check on the new router for the SSID, this is the wireless network name that you connect to, and this is what you have to connect to when doing my instructions.
