Card only connects for a few seconds then disconnects

Wireless router that is for WPA-PSK TKIP
I can load up one web page then I get the error: Limited or no connectivity. Invalid IP address.

I've hit the "repair" button to reset it and it works for one more web page then it starts all over again.

    problem : limited or no connectivity when the wireless network has encryption (WEP, WAP). (I did provide the appropriate key)

    Connecting to unsecure access points is not an issue. I already have upgraded the driver w/o sucess.

Start-> Run -> CMD [Enter]
ipconfig [enter]

list this information...

Try switching the key to WPA-PSK WPA2-PSK TKIP/AES which will allow for the usage of either types of encryption protocols, hence more chance for a successful connection. The repair feature in windows hardly ever works and all it does usually is:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

But if nothing else works you could try resetting winsock in a cmd prompt:
netsh winsock reset [enter] [restart]

How do you write an ASCII network encryption key?


Hello. Wireless security strength depends on the mode of encryption you are going to use (WEP, WPA-PSK [TKIP], WPA2-PSK [AES], WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]).
WPA-PSK should be enough to secure your Wireless network.

ASCII - Choose from any key available on the keyboardHexadecimal - Characters ( 0~9 and A~F)

  • Before setting up wireless security on the router, make sure the computer you are going to use to setup wireless security is directly connected to the router using an Ethernet cable(wired).

  • To setup wireless security on the router, access the router user by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the address field of your browser and then press Enter.
  • Enter admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).
11_25_2011_5_49_11_am.png
  • Choose Wireless Settings from the Menu on the left.
11_25_2011_5_52_11_am.jpg
  • Select WPA-PSK under Security Options. Input the Passphrase.
Passphrase can be 8~63 Hexadecimal characters or 8~63 ASCII characters.
Take note of the passphrase then click Apply.
Hope this helps. Have a nice day.

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 192.168.1.1
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.

Ethernet

Start at step 3 above.

I have a sony laptop (old but my linksys router worked fine with it) cablevision gave me a new router. now all that happenes when i try to connect is valadating. i changed the settings to wpa-psk and tkip...


Sounds like your network card is outdated, I would first go to the sony website go to support and downloads and enter the model of your laptop check the list of drivers and see if there is an update for it. If not identify your wireless card in device manager and go to the web site of the manufacture and look there for a driver update. Just curious did you hit the set up button on the router, its looks like a symbol of a lock, If not strike that button and try to connect, it shouldn't matter if your running wpa-psk or tkip I believe aes runs with psk for older adapters. If all else fails, the next choice you have is to replace your wireless card in the sony or change the security settings in your router to good old fashion WEP and generate a wep key,,, No were near as secure as wpa but it should work.

Hi.. I have just been connected to cable broadband with a Motorola Surfboard SBG9001 modem. I don't have any security, how can I change that so that the neighbours get free internet. Thanks


Open Internet Explorer and type 192.168.0.1 in the location for a web address.
When the SBG900 page appears choose WIRELESS on the left.
When WIRELESS appears click SECURITY AND stay on the basic page.
Choose WPA as the SECURITY MODE.
Use your phone number as your passphrase
Under the WPA CONFIGURATION section choose TKIP and LOCAL WPA-PSK.
Then click SAVE CHANGES.
The SBG900 may restart before the changes take effect.

How to make a secure connection.So far i have an open connection. My router is Belkin_G_Plus Mimo


Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar.
1. the Home Page is displayed. Click Wireless from the left menu
8. Changing the Wireless Security Settings
Your Router is equipped with the latest security standard called Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2). It also supports the legacy security standard called Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). By default, wireless security is disabled. To enable security, you will need to determine which standard you want to use.
To access the security settings, click Security.
The Router features WPA2, which is the second generation of the WPA-based 802.11i standard. It offers a higher level of wireless security by combining advanced network authentication and stronger Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption methods.
2. You can configure wireless security/encrytion settings here. Select WPA-PSK (no server) from Security Mode drop-down menu. The new page will display on next screen
3.Setting WPA Security
Note: To use WPA security, your wireless network cards must be equipped with software that supports WPA. At the time this User Manual was published, a security patch from Microsoft is available for free download. This patch works only with Windows XP.
Your Router supports WPA-PSK (no server). WPA-PSK uses what is known as a pre-shared key as the security key. A pre-shared key is basically a password that is between eight and 39 characters long. It can be a combination of letters, numbers, or characters. Each client uses the same key to access the network. Typically this is the mode that will be used in a home environment.
Setting WPA-PSK
1. From the Security Mode drop-down menu, select WPA-PSK (no server).
2. For Encryption Technique, select TKIP or AES. This setting will have to be identical on the clients that you set up.
3. Enter your pre-shared key. This can be from eight to 39 characters and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same key must be used on all of the clients that you set up.

Need security option


The security code is set in the wireless section of the router. You need to access the router's setup page and go to wireless. Under security you will see the encryption key which you need for your adapter.
The setup page is at 192.168.0.1. Put that in your browser.
It will open to the router's setup page.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is admin, and the password is password. Click the Ok button to log in to your router. Then go to wireless tab, then security.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Laptop cannot connect to router with WPA-PSK security


What I believe here is you are not typing in the pass-phrase(wireless password) correctly.

Go to 192.168.1.1 log on to the router ,in wireless section you will find the pass phrase,, create a new one and then try to connect.
