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)

If you have wireless/switch/router check if the wireless connection is enabled. Some of the devices by default has wireless disabled. While you are on the cable do that setup, and then go for wireless. Take care of the password if the connection is secured.
Also check if the laptop wireless card is enabled.
If this problem just started on a network that was working try resetting (unpluging) the router and modem. Another option is to do a "repair"
I assume this is a wireless connection.
Open your wireless network connection and go to the support tab.
Here is where you can do a repair. This will reset your network adaptor.
Try this and it should solve the problem.
1. Right click on My Computer icon and go to Manage. 2. Go to Services then go to Service and Applications. 3. Double click on Wireless Zero Configuration. 4. Change the Start Up Type to Automatic and click on Apply. 5. Click on Start and press OK to close the window. 6. Go to 'Control Panel', Click on Classic View in the left hand side menu and then open 'Network Connections'. 7. Right-click on the wireless Network Connection icon and select 'Properties'. 8. Go to the 'Wireless Networks' tab. 9. Check the option 'Use Windows to
Configure this Wireless Connection' and click 'OK'.
Now please perform the following instructions to connect to the wireless network:
1. Go to 'Control Panel', Click on Classic View in the left hand side menu and then open 'Network Connections'. 2. Right-click on the wireless Network Connection icon and select 'Properties'. 3. Click on the 'wireless network' tab. 4. Under Preferred networks if you see any name in the list then highlight the name and click remove. Click OK. 5. Right-click on the wireless Network Connection icon and select 'View Available Networks'. 6. Look for the SSID (aka Network Name) of the Wireless router or access point. 4. Highlight thee SSID from the list that you want to connect to. 5. Type the security Key here and click on the 'Connect' button. 6. You should have successfully established a wireless network connection.
let me know if you need any further help.
Sometimes when you bootup and the error message = "wireless connection has limited or no connection", or has a red X on the wireless icon, it is because the router has not issued an IP address to the wireless card. Right click on the wireless connection and then click Repair. If this doesn't work then reboot the router then the laptop, this should fix the problem
On the machine that the printer is connected to go to Start>Control Panel>Printer and Faxes>Right click the Printer that you want to Network and Left Click Sharing> Select the Option to Share the printer and Name it something that you wil remeber. On the Laptop go to printers and Faxes select add new printer and select Network Printer. And Choose the second option Put the Name of the Computer that the printer is connected to and then printer name. Example \\Desktop\HpPhotoSmart 8100. Also you will need to check to make sure that both machines are on the same Domain\Work Group. Go to Start>Control Panel >System>Computer Name Tab ( Here verify the Machines Name)> Join or Change Domain>Put the machines on the same Workgroup if they are not, Do the same on the laptop. To test this, on the laptop go to Start>run and type \\Desktop Name and you should see what is able to be shared. Walk thru the steps above to install the printer on the laptop and have the intall cd in the laptop to install the drivers and you should be good to go. I hope this is understandable. If not feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see if I can clarify this for you. Happy networking!
Connect the LAN port on the Barricade to the WAN port on your wireless router. The Barricade should be "plug-and-play",
i.e., no need to configure it. Similarly, the WAN port on the wireless-router is plug-and-play, so it should automatically get an IP-address from the Barricade.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.
Then, start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wired Network Setup Wizard", and then the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard". When you're done, then your "wireless" device(s) (iPod Touch, laptop, XBox360) should be able to make a wireless connection.
