Typically, if your router is both a wired and wirless, then you have to IP into the router, configure the wireless network and put the encryption key on whatever computers are connecting to it.

typically, default IP is 192.168.1.1

Open explorer and type just: 192.168.1.1 into the address bar and it should open a login box. Use the user/password that is the default for your router.

It may be stamped on the bottom of the router along with the IP address i mentioned above, or similar to, in which you should use that one.

Now once you are in, you configure the system manually such as type of network, channel number, passwords and what not.

If it is a linksys it should have an easy setup CD that will do most of the work for you and is self explanitory.

If you still have trouble, please provide us with the Make and model of the router so we can help you better.

Good luck

Cant get wireless to work on acer aspire ax3400desktop


Is it set up to be wireless? Is there a wireless card installed inside the desktop or are you using a wireless device that you use in one of the usb ports? Do you have a wireless router? Now that we've covered the basic requirements let's see if we can find a solution. Most desktops don't come with the ability to connect wirelessly out of the box. Normally you have to installed a wirelesss device either by using a pci wireless adapter that you istall inside the computer or a usb type adapter that you plug into a usb port. No matter which type you use you should have been given a software disk that contains the driver and the utility that controls the wireless device. You can connect either using the wireless utility software that should be on your desktop or under your programs list. Or you can connect using windows (windows comes with the ability to connect wireless once an adapter is installed) zero config. Normally your wireless utility software will have an option to either let it control your wireless connection or to let windows control the connection. I would try both options if I were you. Make sure you can see your wireless router in the list of available wireless networks. Find your network and click Connect. If it requires a password it will prompt you for it. Now if you notice your connection just continously polling trying to connect that means you put the password in wrong. You will never connect if you don't put the password in exactly right.
