Have you checked that the wireless network card is "enabled? In addition what model is the wireless computer and does it have internet access if it's connected to the router via a hard wire?

Probably on your main system you've installed a WEP security code. You'll need to install this same code on the wireless.

How can enter my product key


Hi
You don't mention anything about the type of router you are asking about, so I will have to be general in my reply. If what I say here is not sufficiently precise for your particular router please give more information about it.
Most routers have two "sides" to them, one for setting the router up and configuring it, the other for actually doing the "routing" of computer to computer or internet etc. Wireless routers also have specific credentials to allow wireless use for computers, printers etc. and modem routers also have the credentials for access to your Internet Service provider to give every machine on the network access to the internet.
Configuration access:- this requires access via an IP address entered in the address line of a web browser, and a username and password to gain access to the configuration settings. The defaults for all three of these are usually in the documentation for the router and vary from make to make and sometimes model to model.
Internet settings:- These will have been given by the Internet Service Provider, and if you need them again and have not got a note of them, you will need to contact your ISP for the exact details, and enter them in the internet section of the router.
Wireless settings:- If your router is wireless capable then via configuration access you need to enter the relevant settings in the appropriate section. The main requirements will be to set up a suitable encryption type from the ones available on your router, an encryption key (password) which computers can use to access the network and hence Internet. One of the main problems I have with a wireless connection is matching the encryption types between computers, printers and routers, since they MUST be the same. Modern equipment is getting better and better about this, often being able to detect the type and using it automatically.
This is quite a screed and at my typing speed has taken a while to produce so I really hope it proves useful to you.
Cheers

How can I remove my neighbor from my network


Easiest thing to do, Change the password to your router. Once this is done, it will prevent your neighbor from any further access to your router and of course prevent internet access. Most all routers are simply a local web address for access. Example: 192.168.1.1 typed inside a browser address pane will take you inside the router. Check your router for setup procedures.

Have a great night..

If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then - To connect to your wireless router, the router needsits wireless settings to be configured with the SSID, encryption key etc., alsothe wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router and access the Internet via the DSL or cable modem.

Does anyone know how to secure my internet site. At this point anyone can access


You'll need to go into the router's webpage. Check your operation manual for the default webpage address and access login/password.

Within the main menu you should be able to find security settings for your wireless configuration.

Ok first thing to do here is to reset the router and reconfigure it back, To reset it just press an dhold teh reset button of therouter to 15 seconds while the power is ON then after that power OFF the router for 5 seconds, If you have teh setup CD of the router just run it to the main computer and let it reconfigure the router back for you, but if you don't have the setup Cd of the router you can manually configure it by accessing the router setup page if you're not familiar on how to that I will dvise you to contact Linksys tech support and let one of their tech walk you through with that process and also they updating the firmware of that router that will also help alot in solving your problem, this is the number for linkys 800-3267114....

Hope that helps.........

You are connected to access point but the internet cannot be found.


Do you have a connection wizard that you can run on your computer? Linksys offers them for downloading at their website. Try that -
have you named your home network so your wireless connection can "find" it? You don't mention how your main computer is networked in. A wireless adapter for a notebook will need to have a Linksys connection wizard run on the laptop.

If you have a Linksys router connected to your main computer, it should already have the piece of software you need. Most likely, you'll need to put it on a flash drive and install it from that onto your laptop. the wizard helps also to diagnose the right settings.

If you want to post what you are using for your main network (linksys router?) and which operating systems you are using, that will help.

For example, in Vista, you'll need to enable the option for "network discovery" under your laptop's control panel/network and sharing center.

You also need to have certain settings on your main computer for the wireless to work - there are two main types of wireless connections - B and G. Most of today's routers and cards will do both, but if you have an older router, it might not be set up to handle the newer or combined types. They run on different frequencies, so your laptop might not be "reading" your router's frequency.Also, if you have other wireless/radio frequency equipment near your laptop, it can interfere with the signal being received right.

You also need to be sure that your firewall allows the linksys system to access your computer (allowed programs).

Can't connect


First if your computer has an ethernet port attempt to connect through the router to the internet with a wire. If that works the next question is did you buy this device new or used? If used we can work to assure we know the configuration of the device. Second what is the manufacturer and model of your computer? Third, if the wireless adapter is not built into the computer what do you know about the make and model of the wireless adapter? Armed with the above information we should be able to resolve the issue.

Thanks
