    Thanks cnavarro. I tried to reset first but lost the connection for a long while, but eventually used the WEP 64 bit and after a bit more fiddling about, I don now have wireless connection. Thank you very much

I use WEP on my installations. It's probably not the greatest, but it does keep the neighbors out of the box.

WEP 64 bit encryption is looking for 10 HEX digits (0-9 A-F). In the simplest, I use 1011121314 as the key.

I can't connect to the internet because I don't know the security key is for my Dell inspiron 1750


Are you talking about the security key of the wireless network???
I guess so, if yes then I need to know the router you are using.

Acer doesn't connect to protected wireless internet


It looks like you've keyed it in once, but you keyed it in wrong, so the system thinks the security key is there.

Which Operating System?

You can try connecting to another secured network and see if it asks for a security code, then try going back to your network.

Try getting to the security code by going to the wireless network connection and highlighting your network then click properties.

Trying to connect wirelessly to 2 wire. I get limited access icon


Hi groveland1,

I see that you are having issue with your Internet Connection, Limited or no connectivity is a possible issue with your network key / security key on the router and your laptop.

1. Try and check the network key in your router.

2. Check your network settings in the Laptop and see if the security settings in your Laptop is the same as the security/network key in your Router.

3. If possible recreate your wireless connection in windows for a fresh connection from your Laptop to your Router.

4. Change your Network Key in the Router and in your Laptop see if it will connect in-case you may have forgotten you old Network Key.

Hope this helps.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

In need of network key(WEP/WPA key). What and where is this? Bought new laptop and need to connect to router. Thanks


If you don't know the key for the router reset it to factory spec and then put in a new key. Go to the manufacturer web site and download a manual if you do not know how to reset.

No network


The Wireless Security of the router doesn't match your laptop's wireless settings. Make sure you configure the wireless security password correctly on the laptop. If you don't know your wireless password, try these steps:

-Connect your laptop hard wired to the router.
-Open Internet Explorer and on the Address Bard type http://192.168.1.1 press enter.
-It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there's no username and on the password type admin and hit OK. If admin didn't work, type your own password for the router.
-When you get to the Setup page, click on Wireless Tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security.
-Look for Security Mode. If Security Mode is WPA-Personal, the Passphrase is the wireless security key that you need to enter on the laptop's wireless settings. If the Security Mode is WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless security key. Connect to the wireless network and type it in. That should solve your wireless connection problem.

Cannot get wireless connection through router


Hi MistiShay,

You did mention that it was working fine for several weeks suddenly your wireless computers stopped functioning and your getting a message that the security key in incorrect. This only means that its either your entering the wrong encryption key or someone changed the previous security key to something else. By the way what type of wireless security did you configured on the router initially was it WEP or WPA, if its WEP(64 or 128 bit) and your using a bulit-in wireless adapter on your laptop you need the default WEP key because the passphrase only works with a Netgear WLAN Utility.

Know if your having difficulties accessing the setup page of the router you may need to check on your browser settings, turn off the pop up blocker and firewall temporarily, also try another computer. Now if all fails you may need to press that reset button on your router and set it up again.

Changed router settings and now unable to access the network and internet


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!

Cannot "ping" 192.168.1.1 (default gateway)


1) yes, referring to the router's IP address.

2) I determined the IP addresses of all my computers and tried to "ping" them but could not "ping" any of them. I can "ping" the IP address of the computer I am working from but I don't think that helps in TS this situation.

3) I'm wondering if my router is fully set up correctly. Do each of the computers have to be "saved" in the router's settings?
