Just recently my laptop(Asus X52 Series) stopped connecting to the wireless network, it usually connects to. Message error for belkin said " the setting on your computer dont match the requirements of the network". So I removed the network, then I got excellent signal, no connection and asking for a security key. So I went to the host computer and saved the settings via usb and there was a message saying that the security key was incorrect. So I entered it in manually and it still wont accept it. Have no idea how to fix this. I have a friend who brought her laptop over and she is able to connect to the network with no problems. Can you help. As I have never had this problem before.

Re: unable to connect to wireless network
Check your network IP and put one in the same classe of the wireless network. For example if you router IP is 10.0.0.254/255.0.0.0 then you must configure your IP like: 10.0.0.1/255.0.0.0 (instead of "1" you can choose a number between 1 and 253)

It would help if your supplied the Asus Model and the OS you are using. Is your Wireless adapter enabled in the Device Manager? Are ALL the Windows and Asus updates current? What does the software indicate when you try to connect? In the Tray Notification Area , open the network icon, in Network and Sharing Center, what does it say? If you click on Connect or Disconnect and select your Wireless Network what happens?
if you are attempting to hack into someone else's network, nothing, and stop it, that's illegal. If you are trying to use your own network, you have the key wrong, and I can work with you on getting that resolved.
Hard to say what the issue is based on the information you provided.. There are actually a lot of reasons you might have lost the connection.
I'd start by verifying that you're connected to the wireless network that you set up. Did you name it? Open your network properties and see what the icon for the wireless adapter tells you:
- Are you connected?
- Are you connected to the proper network?
- Is your network card "disabled" for some reason? Some laptops have a disable button that overrides the card so the wireless radio can be shut off quickly and easily. Make sure it's not been tripped. Usually laptops have an LED to indicate if the wireless radio is running.. usually blue.
note1: be sure to check the "order of preferred networks" and from that screen delete all wireless networks you won't connect to somewhat regularly and/or ones you've connected to accidentally in the past. Make sure that your home network is tops in the list.
note2: if you did not create your own name for your wireless network and are still running the default name, it's definitely smart to change that. Your laptop can easily get confused with other networks in the neighborhood that have the same name.
Hope that helps.
try disabling your wireless adaoter manually. There is usually a button to push or an F2 key you can push that turns it on and off. Turn it off this way then turn it back on. This resets it and will usually work. If it doesn't the problem might be with something else. You can contact me at email@example.com
Just reset the router (there should be a reset button somewhere on it) it will default to open system. Then go back in and select WEP with 64 or 128 bit security. Generate your KEY and next time it connects enter the KEY. You should be set to go!
This is usually caused by a driver glitch. From the device manager, uninstall the drivers for the wireless, then reboot. The machine will find and reinstall the drivers. If the problem persist, the take the card out, clean the connections, and reinstall it. It's located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. If it still won't work, then you need to replace the wireless card.
