Hi...is this tip any help to you? You only need part (1) 'Retrieving a lost Network Key' - this is the key/password Windows asks for when you try to connect wirelessly. (Skip part 2..).

You can pick up a manual from the Buffalo site if you need one. I think the router IP address may be http://192.168.11.1 and default password is blank (ie no password), but you would need to check your manual to be sure.

Please come back to Fixya if this does not help.

Turn wireless on


The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up
through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or
Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no
additional hardware is required.

Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the
right, then let go.


The switch will go back to its original position.





Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on
the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle;
In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."


It might also say "Open network and sharing
center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.


Click to highlight the network and click the
"Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up
the router (if applicable).


If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway
page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to
see if security is enabled.


If it is, type in a new key and enter the same
number for the wireless network.

You need to get the key to connect to her router, hopefully someone wrote it down when they set the router up and taped it to the bottom of the router. If not you need to log into the router and go to the wireless setup page then click on the wireless security tab, the password should be listed right below where it says wep encryption.
You should be able to search for the default login information to the router on the internet, but if some changed the password when they set it up you will have to hard reset the router and set it back up and then reconnect all your wireless devices to use the new password you created when setting it up again.

I just installed a new hard drive on my compaq nx6110 and I am unable to get onto the internet...any ideas?


Dear Friend,

Your new hard drive doesn't have anything to do with the internet...In fact, if you are using wireless connectivity, you must pair with your wireless router.
The other solution will be to install missing drivers and, you can review them by right clicking on My Computer or Computer then, manage. There you would have to click on Devices located on your left panel and then you will have yellow triangles or yellow marks / ! \ meaning, that you have to reinstall them in order to make it work.
Recommendation: Use another computer, go to HP.com then support, when there look for your model number and select your operating system then download each drivers that are missing from your computer by using and external flash drive, then, take the flash drive to your laptop and install drivers.

Good Luck!!

How do i conect another laptop to wireless


You need to know the password for your wireless signal. If you do know it, use the second laptop to search for your wireless name. Click on your wireless signal, and click join or connect. When prompted, type in your wireless password. If you don't know your wireless password, you are going to have to reset your router. Instructions on how to do that are here:http://en-us-support.belkin.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/48/~/performing-a-hardware-reset-on-the-router.
Then you will have to connect a ethernet cable between the router and a laptop to access the router's menu to create a new wireless name and password. Open your web browser (like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox) and go to the address Http://192.168.1.1 The password should be blank.

After i gave the wireless internet a password on my laptop, now the wireless for my xbox etc has stopped working. The wireless light is also off. Any ideas?


I assume when you gave the wifi a password you changed it from an open connection to a secured connection. You will most likely need to configure the XBOX internet connection again but now you will need to input the same password as you used on your laptop.

Cannot get multiple computers to connect to internet


The only thing I know is to check and perhaps replacing the password you use to acess wireless networks. Try making a new network from scratch, making sure all is correct.
