Can't connect with a secure connection

Hi,

I have a lenovo T60 that will not connect to my router with a WEP or WPA connection. we have tested the lenovo at work and it works fine so this does not appear to be a hardware or software issue. how do i validate the settings on the router to confirm I have the appropriate key, etc.

Thanks

    I have a thinkpad and it will connect to the wireless router when I remove the security on the router. When I enable, and put in the password as prompted on the IBM laptop I get the error "the network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network config. this can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters. I know I have the passphrase correct as I am working on a dell laptoop successfully

The pass phrase only generates codes(4) that you have to use , up to 4 computers or four codes for security 1 for each computer . you may have to unplug the router after you made and saved the changes in the belkin utilitys (accessed by the # address provided by belkin , type it in your browser , then the security code by default is blank just hit submit then your in to check or make changes) don't forget to apply changes before logging out!

Find wifi password


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)
To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.

  1. Tap on your network name to select it.

  1. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The Nintendo DS will run a connection test with your wireless router.
  • The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DS is now connected online and you can enjoy the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection features of the game!
  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51300: This means the security code or network name entered into the Nintendo DS is not the same one the router is set to. To reach your connection settings, click "back" on the error code screen. Make sure to pay extra attention to the security key you find in your router's settings and enter it exactly as it appears (the key is case sensitive).

The Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite are not compatible with WPA security. If you would still like to connect your Nintendo DS online, you will need to either change your router's security to WEP, or disable security entirely. Please note that any changes you make will affect other devices that connect wirelessly to your router.

Can you hook up interent to dsi without a usb cord (wireless)


Hi, I am Steve, lets get you some help
yes you can, the DSI menu allows you to turn on wireless connection. You can only use it with a WEP secured wireless router. This means you have to set up you wireless network using WEP security not WPA security - most wireless routers will default to WPA.
The easiest way is to log onto your computer connected to you wireless router and use windows wireless network setup wizard.

Suddenly today after working for a couple of years all the lights are on solid and my wireless laptops can not find the router


To connect to your wireless network using Vista's WLAN Autoconfig, follow these steps:
Step 1:
Right-click this icon 5449-001.png at the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Connect to a network.

5449-003.png

Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.

5449-005.png

NOTE:
If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.

5449-007.png



NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

What does wpa key stand for when setting up for the x box live


Hi ,

I got your issue , WPA Security it denotes that , the network to which you are trying to connect has been protected with WPA security mode, inorder to prevent other people to connect to your internet.

Usually the router can be secured with 2 different security mode, They are

1. WEP(64 bit and 128 bit)
2. WPA

So your router is secured with WPA security
