SOURCE: I have installed Belkin_N_wireless a8969d

when you say it has a router in it, you mean a receiver and you are trying to connect to the other pc without the means of an external router (network).

You need to set up the connection using windows wireless network wizard as you seem to be trying to connect 'adhoc', which is one pc to another.

It's too long a process to type here so use the wizard

also you need to check that both are on the same workgroup setting, this is found by right clicking my computer and then properties and computer name, as if they are'nt they cannot see each other.

SOURCE: trying to set up wireless

Check that the wireless drivers are installed properly on both your laptop and desktop. THe certificate error is because your laptop does not "trust" your computer. Under network conections click add a connection ec, and when you try to conect, microsoft should ask you weva to trust the connections from computer to computer that should do it :D

SOURCE: Low signal strength on Belkin F5D 8233-4v3 wireless...

With speeds around 10 mb to the router over wireless you may want to consider checking if AUTO chanel is enabled or available on that model
If so then enable it.

Also consider moving the router if there are any other wireless devices nearby eg. cordless phone.

It may also be the the windows "zero wireless configuration" service is finding too many other wireless signals nearby that may be stronger than your own

If that is the case you may want to disable the service and set it to manual. Better still if you have a utility on the laptop (most have) then try set that to control the wireless setting instead of windows.

One of those last two items should help you maintain a better connection but only holds true if you have a reasonable connection to the router to start with.

You might also consider a cheaper wireless repeater to enable you to get better speeds

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it will work.

CAN'T CONNECT TO WIRELESS ROUTER WITH LAPTOP.


Temporarily disable all security on the router AND your laptop wireless card and try again to test connectivity.

The exact error message should be:
"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you
on to the network [SSID]"

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it should30924e8.jpg work.

Also check to make sure that IEEE 802.1x authentication on the wireless network properties Authentication tab is disabled.
