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?

to find the wep key of a netgear router, you first need to ensure that you are connected to the netgear router. after ensuring that you are connected, open a browser, internet explorer or firefox, type 192.168.1.1 or www.routerlogin.net it would now ask you for a username and password. username is " admin " password is the word " password " itself. you would see the netgear page next. click on " wireless settings " on the leftside of the screen. there you would see your WEP key on security options
May be your modem is not configured correctly by bsnl. call up your telephone exchange ask for the correct details of the connection and try again. If it still doesnt work ask for a replacement of the modem.
A security key is not told to all. It is set by you when the dsl router is installed. And is known to you alone. Unless you tell everyone.
How to find it now? start you computer that is connected to net through this dsl router. Fire up the browser and in the address window type 192.168.1.1.
You will be taken into the dsl router. Administrator ID is admin and so is the password admin. In the next screen click on security->wireless->WEP Key. When the WEP Key opens it would either be in clear or as ********. If clear then you have no problems but if in ***** then check a box saying "Show WEP key in clear". That is your WEP Key that the Wii is asking for.
If it does not work then call the communication people of your building. They would know.
No its not your windows system, try to check again your wireless router if the software firmware are installed properly in your PC. Also to configure it and connect your internet provider to the Router, which is automatically create its own Protocol Address or Obtain Address, even on Wireless connection. This is basic on Wireless Router to connect on the internet. Good luck!
It sounds as if your signal strength is too low for the laptop to make a solid connection with the router. The further away you get from the router, the lower the signal gets. Any problems connecting to other access points? Places with free wi-fi like some fast food restaurants, books stores, etc? You may need to get a new router with a stronger signal strength.
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.
your new laptop is asking a network key as you network(wireless) is a secured one.other laptops have this key already .in order to get the key,please open the internet explorer (or safari) in a working laptop and in the address bar type-192.168.1.1>>it will prompt you the username ,password page->>put "admin" as password and leave the username blank.once you logged into routers webpage,click on wireless tab and then click on wireless security subtab>>you can see the network key there.copy it or write down in a paper>>close that page.
--->>from the new laptop , try to connect,if it prompts network key--enter the key( you got from other laptop),and connect.it will connect and next time it will connect automatically.
ok does the router show green lights in power, internet and wireless. i'm assuming your using windows here, first of all make sure you have wireless turn on or activated in the laptop, then at the botton left of the screen in the taskbar you see one computer like icon, right click on that and view available networks.......find your network form the list and then click on connect.
if you have the router set up right and pluged into your modem it should work just fine if not let me know and i'll tell you how to set it up.
hope this helps.
depending on who your ISP is, you need an ethernet cable coming from the modem into the WAN/Internet port on back of router. Once that is in you can try to connect wirelessly using the settings your router is setup for :
SSID/network name encryption type encryption key/passkey/passphrase -- this part is dependent on above setting wireless channel
