What I would try is while the wifi is unsecure go on the computer and open up the browser you are using, on your router the default ip address is 192.168.2.1moz-screenshot.jpg

type the router default ip address in the browser where you would normally type a web address www.google.com

Logging into the Router
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the
“Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the
“Submit” button to log in.
Configuring the Wireless Network Settings
The “Wireless” tab lets you make changes to the wireless network settings. From this tab you can make changes to the wireless network name or Service Set Identifier (SSID), operating channel, encryption security settings, and configure the Router to be used as an access point.
Setting up an Allow Access List
1. Select the “Allow” radio button (1) to begin setting up a list of
computers allowed to connect to the wireless network.
2. Next, in the “MAC Address” field that is blank (3), type in the
MAC address of the wireless computer you want to be able to
access the wireless network, then click “<<Add” (4).
3. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add
have been entered.
4. Click “Apply Changes” (5) to finish.

this will allow only the wireless device you select to access your router.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

SOURCE: trying to change the router settings to secure -

Hi,

If the user name and password doesn't seem to work for you. Press and hold the red reset button on the back of the router for about 5 seconds. This will set it back to the factory defaults, were the blank user name and admin password will work for you. Once you accomplish that, you'll be able to setup your secure connection.

Good Luck,

and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks

Mark

SOURCE: Edimax BR-6424n router wireless works fine with

When you enter a WEP key, you must completely redo the new connection on the PC, remove the adapter and start all over again as in reinstall the driver, then do the connect to network, thing. BTW, you MUST save the setting in the router, and reboot the router, and then reboot PC, and then try to establish a connection. You should also use this tip, when you generate that BIG number WAP?WEP Key, copy/paste it to a notepad document, and save as wapkey. No after saving it in router and rebooting, when you come to the Field to enter the WAP/WEP key when logging onto the Router, you can simply copy & paste back from that notepad document you saved before. Now you should be able to login, remember to save network setting too. so you don't have to enter it each time you login.

Authentication problem. Reset wifi and tablet. Nothing is working.


An "authentication problem" means that that the wifi does not accept the wifi password that the device is providing, or that its MAC address may be on the exception list, not allowing it to connect. Verify that the tablet is using the proper wifi password for the system you are trying to connect to, and that you are using the same wifi security (WEP/WPA/WPA2) on the tablet that the wifi is using.

How do I enter WiFi security key AXESS TA2513-10WT 10-Inch Dual Core,Tablet Rockchip 3066 CPU with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean


First of all, you must have the password which is set for your home WIFI. You can't do anything without it. Assuming you got the password, Go to tablet's Settings, turn on WIFI. When your WIFI router is displayed in the list, select it and you will be prompted for the password. Enter the password and click Connect. When you see Connected, it's done.

My tablet is saying i am offline and will not connect to Wi-fi


Firstly Check if your WIFI router is working by accessing the WIFI connection from another computer, tablet or phone.

If it does, then use the same WiFi connection settings that it has on your ARCHOS.

You could also try connecting your ARCHOS to a friend's WiFi network and if this works, change your access point parameters to similar ones.

OTHER TROUBLESHOOTING OPTIONS:
1. Check your WiFi router/modem documentation to see if it has a pairing button that needs to be pressed. Some modems have such a button that must be pressed the very first time you try to make a WiFi connection with a new device.

2. If you have to enter a password (a security code of type WEP or WPA) be very careful that you do not confuse a 1 and I (one and letter "I"), a 0 and O (zero and letter "O"), or U and V. These are common mistakes.

3. When entering a security code for your WiFi access, check the box "Show Password" which will allow you to see exactly what you are typing in. This will avoid any mistakes.

4. Some access points use what is known as MAC filtering. That means, the WiFi access point has a list of access numbers (every hardware device has a unique MAC number) which are the only ones allowed to access to the WiFi point. The person managing the WiFi modem/router should shut off this MAC filtering system to see if this solves the problem. It is recommended to shut off MAC filtering in general as this is now known to be an outdated and ineffective system for WiFi security. If you must use it, you can find your device's specific MAC address by going to Settings >Wireless & Networks > Wi-Fi settings > Menu > Advanced. It will look something like 00:16:dc:5e:9e:39.

5. Try temporarily shutting off the encryption system of your WiFi router/modem to see if the problem has to do with the encryption system you are using. The preferred encryption system is the WPA2.

Cant connect to internet


Well, I may be an 18 yr. old and I may be no wiz but I'm big into computers and there are several solutions to this. 1) If there is a password put in the wi-fi, you need to: have a device in which will be able to put in the type of security and/or put in the EXACT password. 2) Make sure it is YOUR wi-fi you're trying to connect to. And 3) If 1 and 2 don't work, contact the company of which your wi-fi was bought from. I hope this explaination was helpful for your problem.

I am getting "Authentication Problem" with WiFi on 2 tablets - excellent signal. Accepts the security code and will hold for a minute or so.


I see three points:
1. check if the password of the router is the same you have signed in the wifi-account of your tablets - it's typical that a wrong password is prompted with no error message.
2. check if the wifi-protection of your router has the same type (WPA, WPA2) as your tablets use
3. check if the router accepts new wifi-devices, sometimes there is a checkbox "only known devices can access via wifi"

How can I get my Vivotab to connect to the WiFi


Sometimes a router will stop accepting requests from other machines yet it will continue to provide Internet service to other computers. When this happens simply turn off your router and unplug it from anything and everything it's connected too, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in. Your tablet should be able to connect within a minute or two.
If that still does not work, try restarting your tablet and check the system settings to make sure you have Wi-Fi enabled.
The third step to try if you're still not connected, is to check your router's security settings and make sure your tablet is using the same settings and password.
Hope that helps.
