Question about Belkin Wireless G Plus MIMO (F5D9230-4) Router (1010835)

Wireless security settings on laptop do not match network settings

My new laptop is picking up the signal from the router well. However, when I initally tried to log-on using the required password (not sure if there ever was one?) or network key (I used the network key), I could not get connected. Subsequently, the information from my router (network key, etc) was saved on a flash drive and then downloaded on the laptop. This did not work either and my new error is "wireless security settings on this computer do not match settings on network". Can you help?
My router is a Belkin G Plus MIMO. Thanks!

    I can't even find the "wireless connection" field to which you refer. There are "network connection" fields, but there are no advanced settings to be found. Can you direct me to where the "wireless connection" is? Is this error because I have Windows 2000 on my desktop and Vista on the laptop? Sorry, but I just don't know that much at all.

Hey,

As the settings don't match, I would recommend you reset your router, theres a reset button there, hold it for 30 seconds, your router is returned to default settings and you will instantly get online after the router is working.

After this you will need to setup some security settings incase you don't want people to freely connect and use your network.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks,
Ekse

You will need to change the existing connection to match the "new" settings. I have had this issue with visita as well. If you open the wireless connections, go to advanced settings click on the "saved" SSIDs you can either delete the exisiting one, and start over (easy) or you can modify the settings to match the "new" upgraded system. Visita and XP store these for future use, problem is if one changes it "Doesn't match" so just delete the existing one and recreate it.

If they changed the password for the system or the type of encryption WEP to WPA etc this will correct the issue.
You may want to turn off the IPv6 which can also cause issues with Wifi in some locations.

The wireless network security settings on laptop do not match settings on router?


Hello.
- This error occurs when the wireless security that you set on the wireless laptop does not match the wireless security on the router.
  • If the wireless router's security setting is WPA but on the laptop you used WEP for the wireless security, that's when a mismatch occurs.

- What you can do to resolve the problem is to delete the wireless profile you created on the laptop. After that, let the laptop search for wireless connection available, select the correct wireless settings and it should connect.
--For example the operating system of your computer is Vista, in order to remove the wireless profile you created and reconnect to the wireless router, do the following instructions:- Go to Start>Control Panel>Network and Internet> Network and Sharing Center- Click on Manage Wireless Networks on the left panel. Delete the wireless profile then Search for available wireless networks again. Type the correct wireless security settings on your laptop
-- If you would like to know what wireless security has been setup on the router, connect the laptop or use a desktop which is wired to the router then access the router setup page by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the address field of your browser and then press Enter. Enter admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).

--After logging in. In the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the wireless security or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.

It's actually telling you that your security encryption doesn't match between the router and laptop. Not that the passwords don't match. If you have it set up as WPA2 Personal on the laptop, it has to be setup exactly the same on your wireless router.

Can I setup a wireless Wi-Fi connection with my Fujitsu lifebook N1061. Does it's wireless modem match with Wi-Fi protocol?


there are two sections to this problem. first it that all wireless devices use 3 types of signals.
they are wireless b, g or n type wireless devices. usually you can set your default to recieve b/g or b/g/n. your wireless router should have a label that indicates what protocols it transmits in. once this has been determained, there is the Authentication process which provides security for your wieless signal so that not just anyone in the area can use your connection to the internet such as in a public business where you see the sign Free WI FI. this Authentication method must ALSO match what your router is set up for. when you go into the routers admin area which is a url number such as (169.254.198.1 ) from a connected computers (internet browser) this your wireless manufacturer will provide. you must MATCH this Authentication type also on your laptop to that what you setup to use for the router to ASK for. there are way to many different products to know exactly which one you need. There are only about three different choices for this security connection protocol to pick from. then you will need the PASSCODE from the router label to enter into your laptop wireless setup area. when all matches you should get a hookup.

Router wrt54g2 wont connect to my ho laptop asks for key or passphrase and when in put in key starts doesnt match my laptop security network


You have set up the security on the router itself so that nobody can steal your signal. When you did this you made up your own key/pass phrase. If you go back into the setup screen for the router you can look under the wireless tab then click on wireless security. Depending on what security you set up be it WPA Personal, WPA Enterprise, WPA2 Personal, WPA2 Enterprise or WEP it will show the shared key that you made up. You must enter this key in on your laptop EXACTLY how it is typed in the box in the routers information page.

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Lose router signal everytime i restart my laptop


This seems to be an issue with the router itself. As the laptop is able to connect to other networks easily, the trouble seems to be with the router.

Try updating the firmware on the router. Also, change the wireless channel on the router and check if that helps. If the issue persists then I believe you will have to get the router replaced.

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

No network


The Wireless Security of the router doesn't match your laptop's wireless settings. Make sure you configure the wireless security password correctly on the laptop. If you don't know your wireless password, try these steps:

-Connect your laptop hard wired to the router.
-Open Internet Explorer and on the Address Bard type http://192.168.1.1 press enter.
-It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there's no username and on the password type admin and hit OK. If admin didn't work, type your own password for the router.
-When you get to the Setup page, click on Wireless Tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security.
-Look for Security Mode. If Security Mode is WPA-Personal, the Passphrase is the wireless security key that you need to enter on the laptop's wireless settings. If the Security Mode is WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless security key. Connect to the wireless network and type it in. That should solve your wireless connection problem.

Wireless Network?


The modern laptop and Wii will be no problem. Windows 98 will work but it can be much trickier to set up.

Parts needed
1 x Wireless Router - You can pick up a 2WIRE Router from around £20 on eBay
3 x Wireless LAN Network Adaptors - Around £20 each.

Firstly, the Router. This bit connects to your telephone line and broadcasts your broadband signal by radio and allows several computers to use one service. When you buy a router make sure it includes installation software. You can install routers without, but it's a whole lot easier if you have it.

Next you need to be able to receive the broadband radio signal on your computers and Wii.To receive the signal you need Wireless LAN Network Adaptors on each device. Network Adaptors also have software, which allows you to install the drivers needed.

Your laptop may already have a wireless adaptor built in.
You can check this by clicking
Start\Programs\Accessories\System Tools\Communications\Network Connections
Then see if a Wireless adaptor is present. If it isn't, you can install one inside the laptop by buying a laptop wireless network card. Easier, is to buy a USB Wireless LAN Network Adaptor which just plugs in to a USB socket on the laptop.

Look for LAN Network adaptors that are suitable for the Wii and a separate one suitable for Windows 98. Most will be ok for the laptop.

Install the router first. just do what the software tells you, then install the LAN adaptor drivers on each device you want networked.

Finally, make sure you secure your router signal. That stops the guy next door using your network and offers some security from hackers. Your router will include a firewall and you can set up a key code that your adaptors will need before they can connect. Unless the guy next door has the key, he won't be able to use
your network and play your MP3s...hoorah!
Follow the instructions given in the software to set up a WPA or WEP security key.

Great fun, you'll love it if you can get it all going.
