You will need to access the configuration panel of the router. You can do this via a web browser like FIrefox or IE, in a computer that is connected to the router (preferably by Ethernet cable) The router's address is usually http://192.168.1.1, but it will depend on the brand or make. CHeck the manual or the bottom of your router for this information.

Find pass key for our lap top for the family network.


Log into your router's web interface, if possible through a computer connected to the router by cable, by starting an internet browser and navigatng to its maintenance IP address, usually set by many manufacturers to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. An authentication request will come up. As you haven't speciffied your router model, there are routers whose both user name and password fields are set to 'admin'. Other routers use 'admin' as user name only, requiring the password field to be left empty. Once you get into the router's web interface, go to the wireless settings, and change the wireless passphrase to a new one of your choice. Make sure to change the other devices, which use to connect to the router, to the same new passphrase.
If you need further details, please, provide your router model and manufacturer.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Regards, Carlos

What sort of router, I'm guessing it's a wireless modem, your pc is plugged in via ethernet? Unplugging and replugging the router can often fix it. You will get lousy connection on wireless if you are outside the range of the router. If your wireless is off within the laptop it won't connect. There are hot keys along the top. One will be for your wireless, turn this on using the fn key.

Can't get internet connection to my lap top.ps i have a desk top.


Is your laptop wireless adapter correctly configured? It may be set to only recieve certain types of signals (802.11b, when you may beed 802.11g etc), so check if the configuration of the laptop matches the configuration of the router.

To test if the laptop can get internet at all, try to get to a wired internet line (your wireless router may have some Ethernet ports on the back; laptops usually have Ethernet connectivity), just incase your laptop is set to block all internet signals coming in.

Hope this helps!

Hi i have a problem conecting my lap top ho nx5000 to wirless mode can you help me


If your running WinXP you should see an icon on the bottom right near the clock with a wireless icon. Double click on it, should now open up a windows showing a list of available wireless networks to connect to.

If you have your own Wireless router in your place find the name of that ID whatever you had set it to. If you bought a Linksys router it would say by default Linksys. If it ask for a passkey enter the passkey you had setup on the router.

Now if you can see any wireless networks or you do but can't connect see if your laptop has a on/off switch for your wireless card. If so switch it on and bam wireless freedom you have.

I am unable to connect other computer to the internet. Their system is asking for a code key. They entered the following number4200001053000, this is the number on the back of the unit


no this is not a code, thats possibly a serial number, the key code (a mixture of letters and numbers) will be the security code that your routers wireless connection is asking for, this will either be on the router or visible in the routers security settings, for which you need to see the routers settings menu

Hello Art G.

The easiest way to get connected to your access point is by using the CD that came with the AP. If you don't have it, you have to get connected to the access point in order to get the WEP KEY.

If do you have the model of the Access point (2wire) i can help you with that.
