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.

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.

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.

I purchased a new laptop,,and when Itried to connect to the internet wirelessly it recognized my router, but asked for security code. I don,t know what my code is.


if you don't know your security code, then you will need to reset the router (Use the reset button on the back) then you should be able to connect wireless unsecured. from that point you can type the default gateway IP address (192.168.1.1) in the address line of internet explorer, this will open the web interface of the router (Leave username blank, admin for password) then you can re-enable wireless security and pick a new code (I recommend an old 10 digit phone number you can easily remember but hard for others to guess)

These are some reasons why your new Hp laptop can't connect through your Netgear Router is because your Router has a security that used a password to connect to your router or the ip address of your desktop and Dell laptop is already setup to the router to work with internet.

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.

Can't get internet wireless


Log in to your router ( http://192.168.1.1 ) and go to the Wireless settings. Check your parameters, security modes, passwords. Using this info, try again to get to your wireless signal (your wireless on the laptop) should show up and let you log in. If the wireless function is not found, you need to install drivers for it onto the new hard drive. This ought to take care of the problem!
