Hi, I have recently encounterd problems connecting wirelessly to my router. the notebook and router are brand new and the connection with the ethernet cable works perfectly. I followed the setup disc to the letter and it worked perfectly for two weeks. Now when I try to connect to the router, it says that the security settings on the pc dont match the router. The network key for the router is 8 characters (all upper case), however the profile on the pc is asking for either a 5 or 13 character key which I dont know. No idea. have tried allsorts and windows refuses to connect the two. It just puts a locked symbol next to the router i.d. (SKY15123). Can you help me please?

HI friend, let me explaing you how this works your wireles adpater is gonna work as a receiver and what ever brand router or modem wireless you have it would work as receiver so you can try make some wireless changes in the router contact your your router vendor and say you got slow connection and disable the firewall in router and assign global DNS 188.8.131.52/184.108.40.206
The wireless card in the notebook needs to be configured with the Netgear's wireless settings ie. SSID, WPA encryption etc.
Please click on this link for my instructions on securing the wireless network, configure the wireless router and wireless card in the notebook :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
Hi there. Firstly reset the wireless router and the modem by unplugging the power supply from the back of them for 30-60 seconds (do not terminate power at the wall because there is still a trickle charge in the wires), then plug them back in and wait for 2 minutes for them to reset themselves and try to reconnect. Please post back with the results and for additional advice if needed.
I don't see why not..
are you trying to hook up both computers to your linksys router?
if you have 3 computers now... I'm assuming your old pc was connected directly to the router, your laptop was connected wirelessly and now you have a brand new computer that you also want to connect to the internet using your lynksis router.. you should have not problems doing it, wirelessly or using a wire...as long as your router has ports avaliable...
It has nothing to do with the brands. I do have different peripherals of different brands and they work well.
Maybe your son's laptop is more recent than yours. When you connect the wireless adapter to your laptop, does it detect the wireless network? I remember having a similar problem on vacation. At the hotel, I could'nt connect to the wireless network. The tech support told me to adjust some settings on my laptop. He said to go to the Network connexions, right-click on the wireless connection and selection Properties. Click on Configure...And select the Advanced button. Then on the list select Power on saving Mode. Other than Max power save mode.
if you are using a laptop, make sure wireless or wi-fi switch is on. usually, you will see the name of your wireless network on the connect to options under the start menu, (if you're using windows operating system.) or under network connections. try to connect to that network (usually it is named 2wirexxx.) and if it prompts you to enter a pass phrase or security key, type the default wep key found at the barcode sticker at the bottom of your 2wire modem, the nos. in brackets below the serial no. is your security key or passphrase. also check if wireless card is ok. if you are using a desktop, check if wireless adapter has the drivers installed (it also helps to know the brand of the wireless adapter....)
I have recently gone through the process of setting up a wireless network in my home and I found that a lot of routers and access points 9especially in the wireless N and MIMO categories) have that same problem. Are you trying to go with wireless N? If so then you must be careful what you buy because cross brand connections are not always compatible and also most N routers on the market today do things like drop the connection for no reason. I would recommend the apple airport if you are looking for a good router in the N category. I know they are expensive, but after trying out 5 different routers including all the top brands, I came across the airport and haven't had a problem since. This issue you are having is likely a problem with the router itself.
