Hi,
First make sure you can see the router in your Available Networks. You can do this by double clicking the Networks icon at the bottom right hand corner of your screen.
If you can see the router on the list, double click on it, and if it is unsecured, then you should be able to connect to the internet. If it is 'secured', then you have to enter the Username and Password to gain access.
Or you could type 192.169.0.1 into your internet browser URL box on the laptop. This will ask for the same Username and Password. The default Username is usually 'admin' and the default password is usually 'password' (or 1234 on older models). If successful, you should be able to see the routers settings, and diagnose if your router is properly connected to the internet. If it seems to be connected, and the Username and Password are being entered properly into the laptop when you try to connect to a network, then it can only mean that the laptop's wireless card/adapter is not configured properly on the laptop.
I hope that helps :)

    Oh, 192.168.0.1 is actually the correct number for the Internet Gateway, I apologise...
    If that doesn't seem to work use 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1

    Apologies again :)

    Happy Holidays from Fixya

Can't remember my wep password


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Laptop doesn't recognize printer[c-7280]


For wireless security you can select WEP or WPA security. Some are specific lengths but within reason you can choose your own. Set in on the router first then on the computer. You may need to set up the router with a wired connection

Password for belkin54g


There is no default WEP / WPA key for belkin54g routers. The default password to access the setup is blank. Try going to 192.168.2.1 in internet explorer (where you would usually type the address of the site in), and see if you can find out the WEP / WPA Key.

Connecting issues with wireless mode on WRT54G2


  1. Try to disable WEP in the router and check if the wireless computer will be able to connect to the router and Internet.
  2. Then enable WEP again. If the same problem happens, upgrade the firmware of your router.
  3. Click on the link for the lastest firmware available for your router.

Input of incorrect WEP settings on notebook


There are 2 things you can do. One is to connect the router to the notebook via ethernet cable. You will then be able to enter the router's page by typing 192.168.2.1. The other option is to reset the router to its default factory settings. This is done by pressing the reset button on the back of the router and hold it down for 30 seconds with power still on.
