I suggest resetting the router, that's not just a basic power cycle to refresh it, but it means finding the little button on the bottom or back or inside a little hole (through which you poke an unbent paper clip) that if you hold it in for several seconds (or maybe press the button while simultaneously plugging it in/turning it on), the device flushes its entire memory and resets everything to the factory defaults. This means you'll have to reconfigure everything from the get-go, but that's about the only way to go about setting a "new" passphrase when the old one is unknown.
and what i can understand is that the problem is in the usb wifi adapter and NOT the wifi router/access point..hope it helps..please clarify in case of any doubt..

LOST WIFI SECURITY KEY WORD
If you have lost your WEP/WAP wifi key phrase there is no way to recover it except go into the router administration settings and see if it is in plain text there. If not then you will have to make up a new key phase and apply it to ALL your connected devices.
In future, write the key phrase down on a piece of tape and apply it to the bottom of your router. You can use a hint instead of the actual phrase.
I use the memo function of my cell phone to keep all my passwords and keys.

WIRELESS SECURITY ISSUES

Step 1 : Connect Router - Computer ( Wired)

Step 2 : Open Router Setup by typing http://192.168.2.1 on the address bar of internet explorer

Step 3 : On the Left under wireless Click Security

Step 4 : If it asking for a password leave that blank and click submit

Step 5 : On this Page you can find the WPA Key ( If it is a bunch of dots then Uncheck "OBSCURE PSK ")

Step 6 : IF the security mode is WEP then the key 1 will be your password

I have belkin g plus router and dont want people steal my interent usage how do i stop others from usen my interent also what do i do if i only want others in my house to use our interent


To make sure your interenet is secure on a wireless router, consult your owners manual for the device (you can also download the PDF from belkin.com support page if you need.)

You will need to log into the router setup from a connected computer, and in the setup either set a WEP or WPA key. Once set you simply go to your wirless and choose connect to the router and enter the key, make sure you check the box to save the key and then you should be good.

BE SURE to write the key down somewhere for your reference so you don't have to keep changing it if something gets changed on one of the computers.

Wg111v2


Hi!

Well, it asks you for the login code, if you havent set that code then its set by the manufacture, it should be in the manual who came together with your netgear, it looks like something like this:
ACFG-ABF2-0EDF-11AD-CDFE-A,
Try to find it in the manual.

Good luck to you

Netgear wg111v2 wireless usb adapter wont acquire ip address


Not sure if this is where you are looking, but it probably is. click START then CONNECT TO then SHOW ALL CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTION click STATUS then SUPPORT,,,
or CONTROL PANEL then NETWORK CONNECTIONS then right click LOCAL AREA CONNECTIONS then click STATUS then SUPPORT tab
See what you have there for an IP address
Is it the computer you don't have an IP for or the router? In my case my computer IP the 8th or last digit is the next number after what it is for the router. The other numbers are the same

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.

NetGear WG111 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter


After a small amount of trouble, I have configured my Win 98 laptop to use
Netgear WG111v2 wireless modem to connect to my wireless router. I used
the driver from the CD that came with the modem, following the instructions and
got to the point, after rebooting a couple of times, where I was connected to the
router, but could not reach another computer on my network (or the outside world).

I double-clicked on the wireless model icon in the system tray and noticed that,
on the NetGear SMART WIZARD panel, the WEP key was set to use the
"Create from passphrase" option, even though I supplied the already generated key (the
hex numbers) during installation of the modem. (The modem was using the key
as a passphrase to create another key.)

To fix this, on the SMART WIZARD panel, I
selected the "Enter key manually" option and, er, entered the hex key (the one
the router/access point uses for security) manually.
I hit "Apply" on the Wizard and, lo and behold, I was pinging the rest of my network.

I rebooted one more time (I had some leftover bad settings in my "Network Connection"
TCP/IP entry for the WG111 connection; I reset them before the reboot
to allow my network to automatically assign an address) and I was then able
to view my favorite site (bythestadium) from my favorite browser (firefox)
