Hi,

The usual fault is problems with the encryption setup.
Check the encryption key, both default transmit key plus the encryption key in you router in Wireless security.
And – if you have set the MAC filter, and forgot to put in the new MAC address.

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why not????

Well it has no secruity and i can't put it on... How do i do it ?


  • You can configure WEP or WPA. But you cannot enable both at the same time.
  • You can configure MAC Access Control list and also enable WEP or WPA for additional security.
  • After you enable wireless security features on the router, you must configure your wireless clients with the matching settings. Your wireless clients will not be able to connect to your network unless you configure matching settings.
  • It is recommended you enable these wireless security settings from a computer wired to the router.
    1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
    2. Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
    3. Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
    4. Click Security under Wireless menu.
      1. Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bitWEP).
      2. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you.
      3. Apply the settings. Please write down the key - You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.

I have a Linksys wireless-G 2.4 GHz router directly connected to my PC. I've just bought a MacBook Pro and want to go online via this router. The Macbook finds the router but cannot connect to...


The reason you cannot connect, is you have to match the settings from your router to Airport- usually it requires you setting the security on your router to a specific WPA2, Wep, or no security- invariably I have had trouble getting clients to get online with the WPA2 set to the either or setting- but set it to either public or private- they're online. Anyhow, in order to do that- you will need to log into your router- if you have a pc/mac hard wired into the linksys via ethernet, open a web browser window and go to 192.168.1.1- it would be under wireless security. Match the settings on your Macbook, you should be able to go wireless at that point. Another solution, depending on your internet service provider... is that the provider could share your system remotely and assist with getting you online wirelessly (I know for a fact that Verizon DSL Business does do this. )

How do i password my wireless router


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 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) 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.

My computer has internet connection through the port on the back, but not through the router for wireless networking. All the connections from the modem to the router and further to the computer are...


So, just to confirm:
PC via ethernet has internet connection OK?
The router IP is 192.168.1.1
The PC ethernet IP is 192.168.1.n (n is not 1)
If you unplug the ethernet cable, you no longer have a connection.

If these are correct, did you previously have wireless internet working? If so, just reboot the router (unplug its power).

If not, you'll need to check the wireless settings in the router with those of your wireless network card, making sure you are using matching security settings (WPA-PSK, AES256, matching 'key').

To access the router, browse to http://192.168.1.1 (ensure your ethernet is plugged in). If you haven't changed from the default login details, you'll find them in the router manual.

No internet connection Message Wireless


You need to connect your computer directly to your router through an ethernet cable. Then, you need to log into your router's configuration settings page (the webpage used to initially set up the router). Once you log onto it, go under the wireless security section, and there you should find the network key (might be know as passkey).

Have SBCglobal with 2wire but want N wireless capability


Follow the dots -

2 wire DSL wire to back of DSL modem.

Ethernet cable out of DSL modem, to current router (if you have one).

Ethernet cable out of current router (if you have one) to new Wireless N router.

If you currently have a wireless G router, keep it, or, use the new Wireless G/N router alone. You will need to set up all security settings again if you remove your current router, and if the new router is N only, you will need to make sure all your wireless connecting computers have wireless N cards in them.
