Yo! if you dont remember the password try connecting the laptop to the router to access the routers page or you could also do it on the main PC that is physically connected to the router.

go to the setup page of the router normally routers ip would be 192.168.1.1 but not always depends on the manufacturer.

once your on the setuppage of the router try to go to wireless section and wireless security.
on that you can get the wireless key that should work.

Peace.

Presario CQ42-305 will not connect to wifi after reformat.


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. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How to connect laptop (using internal wireless adapter) to a wireless network)


Make sure you have the correct Password exactly like it should be (case sensitive). If it is not correct, it will continue in the loop of trying to validate identity.

Also you can click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Connection and select Properties.

When the properties window opens click View Available Wireless Networks. Highlight your network by clicking on it then select Properties.

The Association tab will allow you to change the Network Authentication to WPA2-PSK if it is not set to that and if the adapter will accommodate it. And you can put in the Network Key or Password.

Security key invalid for new PC with windows 7 OS to connect to my existing router


Hi. I think you should contact your Internet Service Provider for the security or just ask them on what is the security key. Also you could ask if you want just disable the password so that you can just connect to your wireless router without the password or just ask them to configure your router to have your prefer password. Hope this helps

How to find "wireless network security key"


1) visit http://192.168.0.1

2) login using the username "admin" and leaving password BLANK

3) Once logged in, click on the wireless tab and it should have your wireless keys listed.

(this must be done while connected, so if all your computers are wireless, and you dont have the key, you must hard wire one computer and use it to do this.)

Have Dell Inspiron 1501 had to reformat hard drive and reloaded all system programs and drivers but cannot connect to wireless router. Could connect before reformat and other laptop connects to router...


Dell has a nasty habit of making you go to their website to get some of the drivers. Check to make sure your wireless card's drivers are there (probably not). Right click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager. I'm betting you'll find a yellow circle with a black exclamation point under your Network Adapters. If so, go to the Dell site for your drivers, download and install. It'll be recognized automatically. Let me know if this doesn't work. If it does, please rate me accordingly!

Need a network key


Since you want to access the router setup page and get the wireelss security for your laptop you can try this:
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
When you're already on the setup page of the router youc an go to Wireless tab and click on Wireless security and there you can find the security key that you need....

If the default password didn't work you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds so it will be back to its default settings with default password which is admin.

But if you successfully log in to the router page just go to the Wireless tab and there you can find all the wireless settings of your router including the wireless security key...

Another problem... wireless router Allied Telesyn wa1104g


can you connect without the security???
if so. configure the router with minimum security. if that is good than go up.
you need to clean out the setting on the laptop first.
delete all of the network that the laptop can find. do a fresh search. click on the router you want ot connect. if you setup the WEP. it will ask for a pass key type in the key exactly as you have on the router (case senstive).

let me know if you need addtional info.
