Make sure you have the correct settings such as the type of security wep,wpa,wpa-psk,etc...make sure your security key is correctly entered, If your not sure open up a web browser and put http://gateway.2wire.net in the address bar go to your wireless security part of the modem and check your settings best thing to do is to hardwire to the pc and then go to that link. what kind of operating system do you have ?

How do I connect my Macbook to my Kodak wireless printer with my Belkin G+MIMO router?


When you added the WPS encryption ket to your wireless router, this secures your wireless network from unauthorized access to you wireless network.
To allow your wireless computers and wireless printer to communicate with your wireless network the wireless cards in the computers and printer needs to be configured with the WPA encryption settings that you configured in the wireless router.

I have a belkin.4bda router connected to my laptop from my pc which normally works very well, however from time to time my laptop will not allow me to connect to the internet saying that my security key...


The PC connects to the Internet because it uses a network cable that is attached to the router.
The laptop connects to the router with a wireless connection, you most likely have enabled encryption on the router's wireless settings and if the laptop's wireless card has not been configured with the router's encryption settings, then it cannot connect to the router via the wireless until you enter the encryption (security) key.

Can i secure my network using wrt54g? some unknown user is accessing my network. How can i have security on my network? thanks.


To secure your Linksys WRT54G wireless router, follow these steps:
  1. Open your Internet browser and enter the following in the address bar: http://192.168.1.1.
  2. Note:

    If you have changed the IP address of your wireless router, enter that into the address bar. By default, the address is 192.168.1.1.

  3. Enter the user ID and password for your router. If you haven't changed it, the default password is "admin". We will change it later if you haven't already changed it.
  4. You should now see the "Basic Setup" Web page display in your browser. Scroll down the page until you see "Maximum Number of DHCP Users".
  5. This option will assign a specific number of IP address to computers. If more than this number of computers tries to connect to your router, they will not be able to.
  6. Count the number of computers that will connect to the router, and type it into the "Maximum Number of DHCP Users textbox".
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the Web page and click "Save Settings". Once the settings have been saved, click "Continue" to return to the Web page.
  8. At the top of the Web page, click the "Administration" option in the menu bar.
  9. On the "Management" Web page, you should see two password text boxes. This is where you should change your administrative password. Type in a new secure password into both boxes.
  10. Once you have changed your password, click "Save Settings" at the bottom of the Web page.
  11. You may be prompted to login again, if you are then enter you new password in the password field.
  12. Navigate back to the "Management" Web page by clicking the "Administrative" option in the menu.
  13. We will now encrypt your connection to your router setup from your computer. To do this click the "HTTPS" checkbox next to the "Access Server" option.
  14. Once again, click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the Web page.
  15. You won't get the settings saved page again because the URL in the address bar is not longer correct. Since you have changed your connection to HTTPS, it you need to specify that in the address when you connect to the router setup.
  16. In your browser, change the address to: https://192.168.1.1.
  17. If you get a security error, ignore the error and continue to the Web page.
  18. Login with your password and then click the "Wireless" menu option.
  19. Beside the "Wireless Network Name (SSID)" option, type in a name for you network connection.
  20. Click the "Save Settings" button and the "Continue" button to return to the "Basic Wireless Settings" page.
  21. Click the "Wireless Security" sub-menu option at the top of the page. This is where we will provide the most important security setting.
  22. Next to "Security Mode", select "WPA - Personal" from the drop-down list. If you have trouble connecting to your wireless connection, you can try selecting "WEP", but your connection will be much less secure.
  23. Next to "WPA Algorithms", select "AES". Once again if you have trouble connecting to your wireless router, select "TKIP".
  24. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long "WPA Shared Key" with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation.
  25. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  26. Click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the Web page, and then the "Continue" button.
Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your "WPA Shared Key" exactly as you specified it

Trouble connecting to router


Make sure SSID broadcast is switched on under wireless settings. You will have to connect via ethernet cable first to do this.
Then, if PC's can see it, once logged in and set to automatic you can turn off SSID if you like.
Personally I leave it on and set high security using MAC addresses so I don't mind if my router broadcasts it's existence.

Can't connect DSi with same security as comps


hello, yes i had the same problem, but i had it with many other computers, the way i solved it was going into the router settings and click the "restore default settings" then turned the router off for 15 seconds (for a fresh reboot) then when i had to set everything up again i got all my computers on the router and im able to add more without running into that same problem once again, or for a simpler solution try disconnecting the wireless on the computers and replugging them in.... that works sometimes as well

I tried to secure my router but had trouble doing so, I cannot connect to the internet now


i assume that you have tried to secure your router using a wireless computer. if so, there's a possibilty that you have sucred your router successfully and you need to connect you computer again to the wireless signal using your password. if you can't remember your wireless password or if the password you are typing is not being accepted, you need to hardwire a computer to the router to double check the wireless settings that were enabled on the router. once you have verified all your wireless settings, connect the computer wirelessly and enter the correct wireless password/network key and check if you'll get internet connection again

hope this'll help you but if not just indicate the exact brand and model of your router and your wireless adapter.

ciao!
