Instead of using your laptops windows zero wireless configuration, you can purchase a seperate wireless pcmcia card or usb dongle type that uses the security you require within the relevant company's software & drivers.

How do I change my allfine 7in, netbook fromwep to wap

You need to make sure you make the change from wep to wap in your wireless router first. After you do that then go into the properties of your wireless connection and under the security tab you can change your security from wep to wap.

How to set up wireless home network with a DSL subscription.

If you have a DSL, "Digital Suscriber Line", most companies will provide you with a modem. Usually the modem will have only one ethernet connection, meaning you can only connect one computer.

In order to connect multipule computers you will need a wireless router, ethernet HUB, or router.

Connecting with wireless Router

The only thing you really need to change is the following 3 settings on the Wireless Router. The SSID (so you know what wireless network is yours), the WPA/PSK and or WPA2/PSK, encryption method TKIP key or password. Under "administration" change the administrator password for a secure wireless connection. ( WRITE DOWN YOUR PASSWORD)

Connect to your wireless router

1. Plug in either your (1) wireless card, (2) PCMCIA wireless card, or (3) USB wireless stick.

2. Turn on your laptop or desktop computer. Select the wireless router with the strongest signal and with the name of your routers (SSID) and click connect.

3. Open your web browser and type
If this dosn't work, check your wireless router instruction manual for the correct IP address for your model.

4. Your router will ask for a password, usually (admin, admin) works or (admin, (ENTER) ) try both. If neither work try resetting the router by holding in the reset button for 3 seconds.

Once you log on to your router you can set parameters to your liking or just set the , {SSID}, {WPA/TKP} key or password, and the router administrator password to keep others from accessing your network and possibly computer.


Start at step 3 above.

You have to go in the setup ( in router ) for the wireless and see what security you are using, are you using WEP; WEP/PSK; WEP/802,1x and then you have to use the same in the computer.

Nb200 does not connect to wireless router ( dlink / virgin ) but will connect to neighbours unsecured wirless connection

you need to change your wirless settings.
I gues you have a high level security assigned to your router like WPA-PSK with a passphrase or WEP with 128 bit encryption.

Solution is :

Login to your router page and change the wireless security to WEP 64 bit and assign 10 digit number as a password in key 1. change your wireless name and click apply. and then try to connect to your own chnaged network.

Panasonic cf-50 problems to connect wireless wpa personal

If the wireless card is an old model it possibly won't support WAP encryption. The wireless router most likely supports both WEP and WAP encryption.
WEP is not as secure as WAP so use the highest bit encryption that is available to you.

I am having trouble finding the WAP key for my computer. I just bought a laptop and it can detect the LAN connection but needs the WAP key. I am looking on our desktop but having trouble finding it. How do...

I guess you meant the Security Key for the wireless. You need to manually set the encryption type and key in order to connect.
When connected to the Wireless router with a cable, open up command prompt (Start->Run...->cmd [OK]), type ipconfig and note the IP address of the Gateway.
Copy paste this Gateway IP Address into IE and [Go]. you'll be prompted to logon. Try defaults if you don't know (Admin, Admin or Admin, password).
Then depends on the model of the Wireless router you need to locate settings for the wireless connection. Recommands WPA-PSK 2, AES.
