Hi, I'm assuming you have a 3Com router, start internet explorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press enter the new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default) click setup wizard, put a dot in pppoa (I'm assuming you're in the UK) click next, put in your user name and password, vpi/vcn 0 and 38 and encapsulation VC MUX, click next put channel to 11, choose an ssid (i leave mine at 3Com), click next, check all the data is correct then click on apply.Now to set up the encryption start internet explorer (blue e) in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 and press enter in the new screen, type in the password to enter the set jup (as it says, admin is the default) click wireless settings on the left hand side of the screen, click setup wizard select wpa-psk from the drop down box where it says pre-shared key, type in a MEMORABLE password and then click apply. Now you will lose your wireless signal. Panic ye not! Click on the smatt TV in the lower right hand side of the screen (this is called the sys-tray) you will now see that the wireless icon which looks a bit like a telly with 3 yellow arcs coming out of it's right hand side has a red cross on it. Click it once, click view wireless networks and then on the new screen click refresh network list. You will after a few seconds see your network -click on it and then on connect. A new box will come up asking you for the network key aka password. Enter the memorable password you have just forgotten in the upper and lower boxes and press enter. Et voila! you now have an encrypted wireless network and you can only get onto it if you know the memorable password!

To Whom It May Concern,
I am sorry you are experiencing this problem. I will do anything i can do to help. On your Computer (that is connected with the Router) i want you to go to Internet Explorer and in the Address Bar type 192.168.1.1 and then it will ask you for a username and password which is admin and the password too. Then you can setup your router.

Thanks,

Hi,

Go to "My Network Places" and then click on "View Network connections". You should see an icon for your internet service provider. If you do not see an icon to your ISP, then click on "Create a new Connection" and follow the wizard which will guide you through the setup process.

I need help to disconnect a second computer to my internet


Disconnect? I assume you mean to "Connect" a second computer. You haven't supplied much information as to how you are trying to connect, so I'll assume that you are trying to connect via wireless. If your router has been set up with encryption you will need the passcode to connect. You haven't mentioned what operating system you are working with so again I'll assume it's Windows XP and you are using a laptop.

Make sure your wireless radio is turned on then look down to the bottom right corner and you should see an icon that shows your internet connection status. Right click on it and select "View available wireless networks". It will show all available connections and yours should show on it as a good signal (if you are close to the router). Select the connection and click on "Connect". If you don't have the router set up with encryption it will tell you that the connection is not protected, just click on connect again. If you have encryption set up on the router it will tell you there is encryption and will ask for the passcode/password.

Type in the passcode and then type it in again on the second line (Vista and Windows 7 will only ask for the code once). Click on "remember this connection" when you see the option. You should now be connected and cruising the net! I hope this helped out, but without more information I can't go much further. Cheers!

I forgot my username and passcode. How can I find it?


You will basically have to reset the router or gatewya thats providing the internet/connection. Look for the reset button on the device.

Router password code


If you are connecting to your 2wire router wirelessly you need to put int he 10-digit WEP passcode, this would be a 10 digit number on the bottom of the router near the serial number, it is usually in brackets like "[6123234645]" for example.

Netgear wgr614uk wep code


If you are the origional owner of the router, then you had set the WEP key, which is a password meant to prevent others from stealing your internet. If you still cant do it, Go to your routers configuration and restore it to factory settings. Then you can set your own WEP Tkip style passcode and connect the Wii wirelessly and correctly. For further help, just ask me.

My belkin router wont work :(


If you access your router, look at the wireless settings, you may need to change a setting to allow b + g connections, your laptop may have a 'b' adapter.

Dell laptop


Do you get an error message?
Can you connect with an ethernet cable?
Do you see the wireless icon in the system tray?
Have you used any encryption?
Is your wireless turned on?
These devices tend to be pretty fool proof. It might benefit you to start over, paying careful attention to the instructions, which can be confusing.
