Just bought a new acer aspire netbook and have a d-link 615 router at home. my dell laptop connects automatically anywhere in the house. my desktop is hardwired so also connects no problem. this netbook...

If the netbook is running Windows 7 and the router is encrypted with WEP, then you can try changing the encryption to WPA or converting the WEP Key to HEX and entering the key in hex to the netbook

How do I obtain the WEP Code for this Router? I'm trying to hook up my Internet capable LCD TV

Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (

Click here if you cannot access the web-based configuration.

Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Click OK . Click the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.


Step 3 Select Enable next to the WEP radio buttons. For WEP encryption select 64, 128, or 256-bit encryption. For the Key type select HEX. If you have an option for Authentication type, select Shared Key.

Step 4 Select Key 1. Enter a Hex encryption key that you make up. The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption.

  • 64-bit encryption 10 characters
  • 128-bit encryption 26 characters
  • 256-bit encryption 58 characters (available on DI-614+ only)

  • The encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters. For example, A4583DFF1A (64-bit HEX key).

    Step 5 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.

    Note: If using non-D-Link adapters, please refer to the manufacturer´s documentation on enabling encryption.

    How do I enable encryption on my D-Link adapters?

    Can't connect with i phone when wep security used

    WEP "Security" has been completely and thoroughly hacked. It is pretty useless. WPA requires that you pick a good passphrase which is not dictionary based.
    But my guess is that you have not entered the security key correctly. Stupid WEP should have included a checksum in the entered key. Make sure you use the hex key, and not the phrase that generates the hex key. I have had poor luck moving those and never encountered a problem with the hex key, unless I miscopied it.
    And switch to WPA security.

    I am trying to connect wireless so that I can you

    I"m not sure what you mean "EAP", but there is a WEP. It's the simplest code, but it will keep the casual or newbie out of your network.

    Somewhere in your documentation, there should be a section on wireless security. WEP 64 bit uses a 10 character HEX password. In the simplest sense, you could set it to FACE123456, or 1011121314 as I do in my own cul-de-sac residence. The neighbor uses a phrase that means something to her but not me.

    If you need something more elaborate, a Pre Shared Key (PSK) can be 8-63 characters and it's case sensitive. The problem is in most routers, if you forget it, you get to start all over as it's not displayed. In my Netgear, the WEP is visible and hex characters have no case.

    There is Linux and Mac software that can sniff out the packets and break the security, but if you happen to monitor your traffic from time-to-time or change passwords, you can usually figure out if it's been compromised.

    Where do I find my WEP key

    To access the web-based utility, launch the web browser on
    your computer (INTERNET EXPLORER), and enter the Router’s default IP address,, in the Address field/bar. Then, press Enter. A password request screen will appear. Leave the User name field blank then default password admin. (You can set a new password from the Administration tab’s Management screen.) Click OK to continue.
    The Internet Setup section configures the Router to your Internet connection. Most of this information can be obtained through your ISP/ your internet provider. Internet Connection Type Select the type of Internet connection your ISP provides from the drop-down menu. By default, the Router’s Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Configuration - DHCP, which should be kept only if your ISP supports DHCP or you are connecting through a dynamic IP address. 68be046.jpg IMPORTANT: If you are using WEP encryption, always remember that each device in your wireless network MUST use the same WEP your wireless network will not function properly.
    WEP Encryption Select a level of WEP encryption, 64 bits
    10 hex digits or 128 bits 26 hex digits. The default is
    64 bits 10 hex digits.
    Passphrase Enter a Passphrase to automatically generate WEP keys. Then click Generate.
    Key 1-4 If you did not enter a Passphrase, enter the WEP key(s) manually.
    Click Save Settings to apply your change

    Printer will not accept the WEP encription code during setup wizard. We have double checked the code and it is correct

    you may have been putting the passphrase and not the hexadecimal equivalent network key. you should be inputing hex chars (0-9, A-F).

    For 64-bit WEP: 10 hex characters
    For 128-bit WEP: 26 hex characters

    Hope this helps!
