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.

Iam trying to get my account verified won't accept my bank name or mybank router no what I put doen is right


Hi

What specific message does it give you when you input your bank name and routing number? Make sure the numbers you enter are indeed correct. Sometimes, people will think the bank acct number and routing number is on the check but in some cases, this is not the case. The routing number will be a different number. Please verify with your bank.

If you are still having trouble I would recommend you reach out to PayPal directly and they can provide additional assistance.

I have wireless connection so says the netbook however my internet explore cant find server


First, I would double check the status LEDs on your router to verify that your router actually has internet. Very often, people are connected to a wireless network, but that doesn't guarantee that the modem has internet as well. Double-check it, just in case.
Next, make sure you filled in the right network key, if your wireless network is secure of course. Entering a wrong network key might make it look as if you're connected, but you aren't.

And make sure your start page works - check what's in your adress bar when you open your browser :-) It's a silly problem, but a popular one.

hia,

you need a network key for wireless connection to get authorized and allow your PC to connect.
make sure you have right key if security is enabled on wireless router.

now if you are entering right key then need to make sure which type of encryption router is using by going into router settings as an emaple WEP,WAP,TES etc...and make sure your computer wireless settings are same as this type.

let me know if you need more info in detail or step by step.

Thanks.

You will need to provide a better description such as the model number of your Linksys. If it is a Linksys router or WAP you can point your browser to http://192.168.1.1/ and enter in your login information. If this is the first time you've attempted to login to the Linksys router/WAP the default login is either blank or "admin" and the password is "admin".
