Re: reset security settings on router...gave me a new WAP...
Try to enter in the key phrase or password that is associated with the key. You might be selecting the the wrong encryption protocol ( TKIP or AES ) and if you change it to WPA-PSK WPA2-PSK you would probably have better luck. If you router doesn't have this feature listed, a Firmware upgrade will very likely provide it which can be found at the manufacturers website. Reset and Retry.

This could be because the encryption settings in the wireless router has not been entered into the wireless card configuration. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions to configure the wireless router and the wireless card in the laptop/computer :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security
it is pretty simple, once you've done it a few times
log in to the router: 192.168.1.1 in the address line of internet explorer, the default username is left blank, and the default password is admin (if you changed the password, us it)
once in the menu, click on Wireless The default SSID (Router name for your network) is LINKSYS, you can change it to what you want (BOB's router etc) , then security, and you'll have the option to enable security, and select the type, Use WPA and for the key I suggest an old phone number that you know by memory (All 10 digits including area code), then save the settings. Next time you try to connect to the network, it will prompt for the key, type in the one you entered, and yo are on-line, wireless and secure
log into the router :
Connect the router to your PC using an eithernet cable
Open internet explorer
put in address 192.168.0.1
User name : admin
Password : password
Go to the wireless security settings
Your WPA key should be displayed if one was set up
connect your router to computer with ethernet lan cable. Then you can access with below link http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
Click on wireless security then check WEP or WAP Code if it is in * or # format then you must need to enter new code. Then save and restart router it is your new password to connect wi fi .. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Reset your router to factory defaults. For that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back panel of router. hen connect your router to computer with ethernet cable. Then you can access it with following link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" Then you can see configuration page of router. Set WAN settings as your internet service provider settings. Enable DHCP . Click on wireless and enable wi fi. If you want secure router then enable WEP security then add new code it is your password key for connect wi fi.
Then save settings and restart router.
Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks.
do you own the network's router? if so, then simply visit the router's config page. to do this, turn on your router and connect a working PC. then in that PC, visit http://192.168.1.1 and you will be brought to the router's config page where you can setup the wifi's key
Check your security settings by going to 192.168.1.1, enter password and go to wireless. You will be able to enable WEP or WAP security settings here. I have seen this and it is caused by incompatible hardware (wireless cards) trying to connect to WAP. What you want is the WEP settings.
First connect your router to computer with ehtenret cable.
Then access it with following link. http://192.168.1.1
type user name as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
then go to wi fi security then check WEP or WAP key you have to set new
key because it is in * or # format then save settings and restart
WEP or WAP key it is your password to connect wi fi internet ,
Let me know if you need more assistanse.
plug a laptop straight into the router with a cable. then open an internet browser and type in 192.168.0.1 type in the username and password. the default will be admin for username and password for password. then close the browser and unplug the cable. it might detect wireless internet after a few seconds. if it doesn't, it is possible that you have a PC set up as the internet gateway for the laptops or something, so when you introduce encryption the laptops can't get access. in which case you should go to your wireless icon on the laptop and click that and open the connection list. double click on the wap secured connection and try to connect. it should ask for a username and password, which you have secured the wireless encryption with. enter that and it should connect to the gateway. dunno if this helps, good luck chris firstname.lastname@example.org
