I would definitely need some more information before giving you a definite solution, but generally, you can reset your router and cable modem to solve this. On the back of each one (modem and router) there is a small hole that says 'reset'. Use a straightened paperclip or something small in order to press the button (holding it down for 5-10 seconds and all the lights start blinking). Do this to both the modem and router then restart your computer. If this does not work, be sure to post what version of windows you are using, the type of router, and the circumstances under which is stopped working.

Hope this helps!

I dont know what where to find out my ssid for connecting my wireless printer to my pc i dont have no kind of manual so cant refer to that please help

Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.

I can't get the printer on the wireless network because something is wrong with the wep password, I have a newer apple wireless router but it wont let me get past the password part.

Verify the router is set for wep and that you give it the correct info. numbers 0 through 9 and A through F so putting a password of password will not work.

Try something like 1423DDA244.

Beter Yet:

Set the router for WPA2 mode and then you can have the password of your choise and a more succure connection.

The Canon is trying to connect to a wireless router or wireless access point which is connected to your computer network. Your Sprint 3g device is a wireless broadband device for Internet connection and cannot connect to the Canon using this device.
You need a wireless card that connects to the wireless router or wireless access point.
Otherwise you can connect to your printer using a printer cable.

Cannot connect to wireless connection using the router c150brs4

There might be many reasons for this. However I always prefer to begin by simple tiny things. Make sure that the router is advertising itself, there something called SSID (service set identifier). The SSID differentiates one WLAN from another, so all access points and all devices attempting to connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can provide the unique SSID.

to make the long story short , SSID is the method of knowing that there is a wireless coverage in a certain area. sending SSID sometimes is considered unsecure. Therefore you have an option of disabling SSID broadcasting. Therefore I suggest to make sure that SSID broadcasting is enabled on your wireless router and then sarch for your wireless network.

One other thing make sure that your router is using a WI-FI technology (802.11b, 802.11a or 802.11g) that is supported by the wireless Adapter (Card) implemented on your laptop..

I had the same problem with my CLX-3175FW. It would find my wireless router, but once I entered the WPA key, there was no connection. I solved this by taking the machine over to the wireless router, and then connect them by using a regular network cable. I followed the instructions in the book which came with the product, and then removed the network cable. After this the machine is connected to the wireless network. Regretfully, I still have problems printing wirelessly, so I bought an USB cable to connect the machine directly to my desktop :(

Does my Acer 5517-1643 come with a wireless card? I can't get on the internet

You laptop has an 802.11g  wireless card. If you can't connect to a wireless network there may be several reasons.
First check your computers hardware or device manager in control panels and make sure windows recognizes your wireless adapter.
If you are trying to connect to a home network you need to make sure that your wireless router is set up to allow 802.11g devices to connect. It may be set up to only allow 802.11b or 802.11n connections.  
To check your router settings you will need to know the address or your particular router and be plugged in to it with ethernet. Usually the router address is something like
This will give you menus to change how the router connects to computers.
Make sure it is set on 'automatic' or specifically to wireless 'g' thern try to connect again.
Good luck.
