Wireless conection

To enable or setup the wireless on a modem router you usually have to connect the computer to the router with a lan cable first, go in to the routers settings, most routers use the web browser to access the settings but read the manual for the correct procedure. Then you put in your account details supplied by your internet service provider.
Enable wireless and apply security settings like a wep key, wpa, or wpa2 passkey. Restart the router, remove the lan cable and you're done.
When any wireless device tries to connect it will need the wep key, wpa, or wpa2 passkey to be entered to allow access.

Purchase a wireless router and connect it to your incomming system. Make sure your laptop has the necessary hardware to match specifications with the router.

Cant find my wifi code to open a network

Your WEP is the security key you set in your router to allow other authorised devices to access your network. When you set it up, you set the WEP to protect your network from others accessing it without the key. So now all you have to do is set the WEP (security) key in your laptop the same as your router and you're cookin'. The same key must be used to connect any thing, iPhone, Wii, Play Station, anything that has WiIFi capabilty.

the lights indicate that the units are functioning, not that they can connect. most likely is the router is WEP, and the laptop has not had the same encryption key entered into the network settings.
on a pc that can access the router open the router's configuration page, read the WEP settings, and copy them to the laptop network settings.
If the laptop still fails to connect, then the reinstall was not complete,
  • laptops are notorious for only working from their own reinstall disk, and only half the time,
and does not include drivers for the network adaptors, which can be obtained from the manufacturers web site, or the cd provided with the unit and properly installed, with luck.
