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]

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Sounds like your network card is outdated, I would first go to the sony website go to support and downloads and enter the model of your laptop check the list of drivers and see if there is an update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.

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of
WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it
will work.

Hi just iwant to put security # or password on my d- link router so imean nobody can can get acsses to the internet. thanks

WPA is a strong form of wireless encryption, however not all wireless adapters support this feature. If your wireless adapter does not support WPA you will want to use WEP to secure your wireless network.

You can find information on configuring your WBR router for WEP here

Step 1: Open a web browser and type the IP address of the WBR series router into the address bar (default is

Step 2: The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.

Step 3: Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings on the left-hand side.


Step 4: Select the type of WPA encryption you would like to use with your wireless adapter from the Security Mode drop down menu. For WPA-PSK select Enable WPA- Personal Wireless Security (enhanced).

Note: All wireless products on the wireless network must have the same level of security to connect to the network.

Step 5: In the WPA Personal section, configure the following:

  • Select the Cipher Type
  • Select the PSK or EAP
  • Enter your Passphrase
  • Re-Enter your Passphrase
Step 6: Click the Save Settings button to save your settings.

I cant secure my wireless network. a website told me to type in and it brings d-link page and tells me to type in a login name and password. The back of my router tells me to type in "admin"...

You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually or into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

I cannot set WPA under Windows XP... help please...

WPA usually has two formats for encryption. They are TKIP and AES.

Please make sure you get the right type of encryption from your router, the correct SSID for your wireless network and the correct WPA pass code.

In Windows XP, you need to go to

Start/Control Panel/Network Connections
Double click on your Wireless Adapter
Enable it if it requests for you to Enable it
If not, then a window will appear showing you your Wireless Adapter
Click on Wireless Connections
Select the appropriate SSID that you're working with in your Preferred Networks list
Click Properties, then a new window will appear
This window will show you the properties of this particular SSID
Here you can set your pass code and the type of security you've got set up in your router. Since it is WPA then you can select WPA from the drop down box and then select either TKIP or AES.
Make sure you've got the right settings selected to match your router. Or else you will not be able to communicate between your computer and your router.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to vote for me. Let me know how you made out.

I need to secure my internet access.

to secure your internet connection, you need to put up a wireless security. to do that, you need to go to your router's configuration page by typing on your browser's address bar your gateway address.

when you do that, you should be able to see your router's config page. login using Admin as username and no password. click wireless:


select you wireless security mode:


lastly, specify your wireless password:


then save you settings. please note that WPA2 is just my preference.

to connect to your wireless network, specify on your wireless device your network name and password.

hope it helps.

    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 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.

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