How do we set up our lap top with our wireless router?

Posted by on

  • Chris Johnson May 11, 2010

    It would be helpful if you could give more information about your wireless router. Although it is quite easy to setup we need to know the vendor or your router.

    Some basic questions when you boot your notebook does it see a wireless connection?

    What kind of notebook is it?

    Are you using Windows XP, Vista? Is windows managing the wireless adapter or another third party software such is in the case of some Dell, IBM notebooks

Hi do you know how I can connect my lap top to the internet wireless with my linksys wireless router ? the lap top asks for an access code and I do not know what it is or how to find it do you know how to...


The access code or password is the encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop/computer to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Router wireless


Do you have the router setup to provide either WEP or WPA encryption? If so, you will need to provide that Encryption key (think password) for your SSID (the wireless network you connect to).

If you then can connect to the router, but still can't get on the Net, you may need to go into the Advanced settings of that particular wireless network (Windows XP - open Available Wireless Networks, and click on the last item on the left Advanced Settings - then click on the 2nd tab - Wireless Networks - pick your network in the box at the bottom, and change one setting from "Open" to "Shared". You should then be able to connect properly.
