Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

We need to know how we can do the conection to wireless network. We are only conected by ethernet cable but we need to be conected wireless. We have two laptops at hope.


your laptop must have wireless adapters and you should be using a wireless router or a wireless access point. if you're already using those devices, your laptops should automatically detect the wireless signal (look for the wireless icon, ususally it's located at the bottom right hand corner of your screen if you are using windows but if you're using mac, you need to enable the airport) and you just need to connect to it (note: you should enter the correct wireless password/network key if it's enabled on your wireless router).

hope this'll help you but if you have other concern, just give the exact model of the wireless router/modem/access poitn that you are using and the wireless adapters installed on the laptops

ciao!

6. Once the Wireless Network Connection Properties window is open you will have two options depending on how you set up your laptop.
· If you do not see any networks listed in Preferred or Available networks, you will have to manually add the SSID. Click on Add. You will have to enter the SSID and WEP key (if required). Click OK and you should then see the network you just added in the Available networks box.

· If you see the correct SSID showing in the Available Networks, then you need to click on Configure in order to enter the WEP key if that is required.


2. In the next window, enter the SSID for the Wi-Fi network you want to access. Make sure you do not have CAPS lock or NUM lock while entering the information. If a network key is required, click on "Data Encryption and then enter the Network key you have been provided with. Again make sure you do not have CAPS or NUM lock on. Click OK when entered. If you have entered the key incorrectly a message will pop up and you will need to re-enter the key.

3. Next go to Start - and where it says Connect To click on that and you should see choices like in the graphic below. Click on Wireless Network Connection and it should work.


There are occasions when the connection doesn't work, in these cases check your firewall software and make sure it allows you to connect to the Wi-Fi network. To check this, disable your firewall software and check the connection again. If you can connect with the firewall program disabled, you change your settings. If your firewall program is not the problem check the SSID and WEP key information that you entered. Both of these are case sensitive. If you had obtained SSID information from the Internet, check with someone in the establishment to see if the SSID has been changed.

I have a linksys for my computer and labtop my daughter needs a network key to get on her laptop where do i find this number.


I am going to assume that you have a Linksys wireless router connected to your computer.

The network key is set in the router by using it's set-up page. Usually, you type in a 26 character code or a text string that is used to form the key.
After setting up the router, you turn on the laptop, scan for available networks, and select yours. Then you enter the network key, which will be exactly same as that you entered into the router setup.

If you are having trouble connecting from the laptop, I suggest you first try setting up the wireless router to use no encryption, just to make sure the laptop can find the network. Once this has been established, activate the security features.

hi dear

try this way....

  1. Before you attempt to use any Wi-Fi network, find out what the SSID, Channel, Mode and WEP key are. Some Wi-Fi locations do not require a WEP key. Many Wi-Fi providers have this information on their web site or when you purchase access you will be provided the information.
  2. Ensure you have a firewall program installed and running. This will protect your data.
  3. Start up your laptop and once booted, look for the Wi-Fi network icon in the bottom right of the screen.
  4. Click on the Wifi Connection icon on bottom right of screen and you should see a window that indicates connection, strength and duration. Click on the Properties tab.

  6. The next window will show the type of networking card installed. Click on the Wireless Networks tab.
