I cant access wirless connection to my computer,there is wire conn ,but not wirless


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Nb200 does not connect to wireless router ( dlink / virgin ) but will connect to neighbours unsecured wirless connection


you need to change your wirless settings.
I gues you have a high level security assigned to your router like WPA-PSK with a passphrase or WEP with 128 bit encryption.

Solution is :

Login to your router page and change the wireless security to WEP 64 bit and assign 10 digit number as a password in key 1. change your wireless name and click apply. and then try to connect to your own chnaged network.

Connecting a brother hl2170 wirless printer to a linksys wrt54g


Take note all the wireless settings of the router first. Now go to the printer and Press Menu/Settings, look for wireless setup wizard. It should find the network, highlight it and connect. If it asks you for the network key, type your wireless network key. It only allows WPA-Personal(TKIP) and WEP. If you have WPA2 or AES, it will not connect

I have a hp compaq nx 9000 notebook and am unable to connect to a WPA encrypted network. I'm using the wireless adapter that came with the notebook and it's listed in the device manager as LAN-Express IEEE...


it sounds like somehow the WPA was turned off . Can you reenter your internal router and re-initailize the WPA setting for your laptop, if there a setting for WPA And WEP together ,check that box. Hopefully that does the job.. good luck

Wirless router


The last thing you want to do is get rid of the password - operating an unsecured WiFi network can be very hazardous to your privacy & finances! You need to set the WEP password in the PC's. If you install the 3Com router software and use that to set things up, it will guide you through doing the job.

Also, it's better to use WPA encryption rather than WEP which is now regarded as insecure and little better than nothing at all. If you can get it working OK on WEP, it'd be easy enough to change it to WPA in the router & then change the setup on the PC's.

Unless you live in the back of beyond, this really is necessary I'm afraid :{
