After i gave the wireless internet a password on my laptop, now the wireless for my xbox etc has stopped working. The wireless light is also off. Any ideas?


I assume when you gave the wifi a password you changed it from an open connection to a secured connection. You will most likely need to configure the XBOX internet connection again but now you will need to input the same password as you used on your laptop.

Don't remember password


In the case of a lost password you need to push the reset button on the back of the router. Hold it down for 30 seconds and then unplug the router from power. Plug it back in to the power.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.

  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "restore to factory default". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed.

Unable to connect using wireless not sure wether there is an activate button for wireless bought laptop 2nd hand


Best to go to the Acer website, follow links for support and downloads and download a user manual. That said, I do believe there's a wireless button on the front of the laptop.

At&t wireless router and magic jack setup


It could be the router which is giving you issue. Press and hold the reset button for 30 second and this makes the configuration to go back to its previous settings. The reconfigure the router with a new SSID and security key. Try connecting to the wireless network, the computers will consider it as a new network and will connect without any issues

New laptop computer with windows 7 - unable to connect. all other laptops/computers connecting fine. Can see the SSID in the list but won't connect.


Hi, Check the following cause for your problem.
1. Check whether your network adapter is installed.
2. Check the secrete password is same for your new laptop , if not apply the secrete password fixed by you to other systems to connect the network ( By default SSID is the password fixed in most factory)
3. Check whether you have addressed the router in the web address page, if not consult your router documentation to find the exact router model address and when you connect with the router home page it will ask you for the user name and the password you can find it in the router documentation
From your question these are the possibilities, still facing problem kindly comment with more details of your exact problem..
Thank you

Acer Wireless Password Connection


WEP is a standard encryption standard that has a 4 keys based on a passphrase. In addition to the correct name and the correct key, make sure youre picking the correct numerical key. (Example: Youre connecting to network MYHOME and the passphrase generated 4 keys and the router is using key number 3. You must use the third key.) Look up the settings on the router and retrieve the encryption key, and whether its the first, second, third, or fourth key. Youll need a computer thats directly connected to the router.

Laptop Wireless Connection Problem


I have previous experience with this wireless connections. I'm not familiar with AT T GSM device. In my experience I found that the manager can play up, but you can switch to windows manager depending on what windows you have. In Windows XP go to your control panel. Click on network connections, then select the wireless network connection. On the screen a window with the network connections should appear. Then on the left hand side down the bottom it will have Change advanced settings, and click on that. Then another screen appears with Wireless Network Connection Properties. Click on Tab Wireless Networks. On that page click on "Use Windows to Configure my wireless network". Once done, click okay or apply if appears. Restart computer and see if windows picks up you wireless connection provided you have WIFI on your laptop! Try that, let me know if you need more help!
