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.

    The reset button worked! Thanks! I have to set up the security now, but hopefully I can just do a search to find out how to do set this up.

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.

I have to enter my password several times to get my kindle to log on. I always have to log on..the signal seems to be weak adjacent to the router. authentication failed is a normal response on my kindle....


your kindle device should be able to connect the network automatically , if this is not happening try adding the network manually.
1.First, make sure you are within range of the network you want to add, and that you know the network name and password (if required).
2.From the Home screen, tap Menu and select Settings.
3.Select Wi-Fi Networks to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks.
4.Tap Join to enter network details.
5.Use the onscreen keyboard to enter the name of the Wi-Fi network that you want to add.
6.Once the Network Name has been entered, tap the Password box and enter Wi-Fi password / Network Key using the onscreen keyboard (if required).
Tip: Tap the 123 key to enter numbers or symbols. Tap the ABC key to return to the regular keyboard. Tap the Shift key (up arrow) to enter uppercase characters. Your password may include non-English letters (accents, umlauts etc.). To view accent options, press and hold a letter down, and accent options appear.
7.Tap Connect

Does all your wireless devices have weak signal issues?If so , Then problem may be with the wireless router.Try changing the wireless channel on the router by logging into the router interface page.
Authentication failed is the message u ll normally get when u enter the password incorrectly.

You would connect a laptop from Canada the same way as one from the US. You want to make sure the wireless card is turned on and check for wireless networks. Once you have found your network select it make sure you type the password correctly.

Can't get internet wireless


Log in to your router ( http://192.168.1.1 ) and go to the Wireless settings. Check your parameters, security modes, passwords. Using this info, try again to get to your wireless signal (your wireless on the laptop) should show up and let you log in. If the wireless function is not found, you need to install drivers for it onto the new hard drive. This ought to take care of the problem!

My thinkpad will not connect to our wireless router. it shows our neighbors routers. I am on my husband's laptop which is right next to my laptop. His laptop is showing full signal. We have a Linksys...


Check you internet settings. Set up a home network from your computer and use all the recommended and default and automatic settings. Then the program will renew the IP address on YOUR pc to match the routers.

To access your router. Go to your pc's web address and type 192.168.1.1
If it by chance asks for username and password, type "admin" for both. Now you can set up your router options from your pc

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.

Router won't log into it's IP address online


Is your desktop getting an ip address from the router?
You said that you reset the router, do you mean turning it on and off or pressing the reset button?

My laptop does not pick up signal from a wireless router that has been connected to the main home computers internet service provider.


You are going to have to log into the router and check the wireless settings to make sure that the SSID Broadcast is enabled. If the SSID Broadcast is disabled, the router does not send out a wireless signal.

For information on logging into the router, you will need to refer to the router's manual. This usually can be accomplished by opening your browser and typing http://192.168.1.1 , or whatever the ip address of your router is. You will then need to provide a username and password. I believe the default on most routers is admin / admin. If you do not have the router manual, provide me with the make and model of your router and I will search for it.
