Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

Net work connections on laptop, it asks for "key" to activate conncection Where do I get this key?

My laptop which is in the next room show a low signal. I'm convinced it isn't recognizing "Net Gear" as a connection. When I try to select net Gear, it asks for a "Network Key". Where do I get this key?

    Thanks for the feedback. I got the network key from the network connection on my desktop. However, this key is 26 characters. When I imput it into the area it gets rejected, saying it is only 6 - 8 characters long. Since I installed this router last Sept. 07, I don't remember if I was asked to create a "key" in the original installation. I'm at a loss to how to find this so call key.

    If you have any other ideas, I really would appreciate it.

    If it's asking for 26 Hex digits, you must have WEP 128 set. Depending on your other settings, there may only be one key, and that appears in one of the 4 key boxes below the Generate Passphrase box. That would be for Automatic. Mine's set for WEP 64 bit Automatic and I have a 10 character hex key in key 1.

If you don't have the key (didn't pay for it) and it's not licensed to your machine, then it would be illegal to give it to you. If you bought it, contact Microsoft about it.

I can not find the wireless switch to turn on

It is a small icon on the bottom tray of Windows - just hoover over each one if you are not sure which one to select and it will say wirlesss conncections. You can also use the multi-function keys which have blue icons or text in conjunction with the "Fn" key - look for the one that has what appears like a radio wave symbol or something similar along the top row of your keyboard.

Need a activation code for a msi netbook on windows xp

You do not specify what version of Windows you are using, but I believe that model came with Windows XP Home.
The easiest way to activate Windows will be online. Get your laptop connected to the internet. Once connected, click Start, then All Programs. Activate Windows should appear as an option in the menu that appears.
A window will open, titled 'Let's Activate Windows'. Select the option 'Yes, let's activate Windows online over the internet'.
On the next window, click yes if you wish to register your copy of Windows, or no if you just want to activate and be done with it. Press next.
If you selected No in the step above, you are done, Windows should now be activated. If you clicked yes, you will be asked for some information about yourself. Fill in the blanks provided and press next.
That's it! Windows should now be activated.
If you don't have access to the internet, don't worry. Follow the steps above to get to the 'Let's Activate Windows' screen. Select the option to activate Windows by phone and press next. You will be given a number to call. The agent on the other end will ask to verify your Windows registration key, usually located on a sticker on the back of your laptop. He/she will then provide you with a manual activation code.

How do i get my netbook to connect to the internet/ what wireless device can I get to make it work

You need to have an active internet connection with a wireless gateway to connect to the "net" wirelessly. You also need to have a wireless device installed in your laptop. The device in your laptop usually has a switch to turn it off and on. This switch maybe on the side of the laptop or may be on one of the keyboard function keys, either way, the wireless support lamp should be on or green for the wireless system to work on the laptop.
If you do not have an active wireless internet connection, you cannot connect to the net although you should be able to connect to a unsecured wireless network which is in range of your laptop ( like in a shopping centre).
If your laptop does not have a wireless device fitted, visit your local computer shop to ask what they have available and at what cost.

My hp mini 110 will not wirelessly connect to the itnernet. it is the same network that my old laptop connected too,but it says it is unable to conncect. now it shows that there is not network available....

Did you see a switch on the side of the HP machine or a key on the keyboard with a wireless symbol? Turn on that switch or press the key to get wireless adapter started. Then try again to search for wireless networks. Please post if the issue persists and I will help on that.

Moving internet to another room

As long as you have an active DSL connection in the new room, yes you should be fine. All settings are saved in the router's flash memory and won't be lost by disconnecting the power. Make careful note of where everything is plugged in (a digital photo is great!) and in the worst case, you can move it all back until you figure out what is wrong.

Go to the control panel. Open wireless connection wizard and configure it by giving the proxy setting of the router. There must be a DNS server to get you connected with the Domain.
First your os xp or vista
if u xp means go to network connection and see that tab, wireless network wizard and click next to open to next to next and click finish. It will appear in network connection windows. But u want to take airtel broad band wireless net key, and u open the tab if u finish ur network wizard tab. And it will open the icon it ask for key, u give it key to continue. It will ready to access the network, so this is the way

Good Luck

Restoring SD Card from ActiveSync Backup

I am fairly sure that you are out of luck. The Active Sync backup does not backup SD card data.
