The only way to get the security code is to access the router's setup page. On your wired PC, open Internet Explorer, type http://192.168.2.1, type in the router's password. Go to Wireless settings and look for wireless security, you can see the wireless code there.

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Cannot get the roku box to work the signal comes up with a lock on it did work exallent until christmas how do i get the signal un locked


When you have the wireless signal with a lock it indicates that your wireless network is secured.
Your wireless network has a security key enabled
Access the router page
Go to the wireless settings or WAN settings
Check what is the security mode(WEP/WPA)
If WEP check which Key is selected(key1or2or3or4)
If you are not able to find the key create a new one
If you change the key here ensure that it is updated on the wireless computers as well

you have to check if you have the wep key enabled. when you put in the wep key, it should also be enabled so that your wireless network should say security-enabled wireless network. make sure to disconnect and connect again on your network after changing the settings to refresh your connection. hope this helps.

Wireless doesn't work


Hi Friend,
Kindly check the below given instructions,

To access the WIRELESS (WLAN) settings window, click on the Wireless Setup button in the SETUP directory.

WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS

1.Click on the Enable Wireless box to allow the router to operate in the
wireless environment.

2.The SSID identifies members of the Service Set. Accept the default
name or change it to something else. If the default SSID is changed, all
other devices on the wireless network must also use the same SSID.

3.Enable Auto Channel Scan so that the router can select the best
possible channel for your wireless network to operate on.

4.The Wireless Channel can let you select the channel of your access
point. Channel availability is different for different countries due to their
regulation.

5.Select 802.11 Mode to operate in b/g/n mode. Or select specified mode
to use.

6.Channel Width, Maximum rate for 20 MHz is 130 Mbps. Maximum rate
for 40 MHz is 270 Mbps.

7.Transmission Rate, suggest keeping the Best (automatic) selection.

8.Click on the Hide Wireless Network box to allow the router to stop broadcasting its SSID.

WIRELESS SECURITY WIZARD

2.SECURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK window.

4.Click on the Apply Settings button to apply the settings

WIRELESS SECURITY MODE - WEP

1.WEP (Wireless Encryption Protocol) encryption can be enabled for
security and privacy. WEP encrypts the data portion of each frame

2.The router offers 64 or 128 bit encryption with four keys available.
Select WEP Key Length from the drop-down menu. (128 bit is stronger
than 64 bit)

3.Specify the encryption key from the Current Network Key drop-down
menu.

4.Enter the key into the WEP Key field 1~4. (Key length is outlined at the
bottom of the window.)

5.Select Authentication type from the drop-down menu. (Shared is
better than Open)

6.Click on the Apply Settings button to apply settings.

Check and revert back

Regards,
Ayyasam

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Connecting a laptop.


on connecting your laptop wirelessly, it is best if you set the router to have wireless security first.

accessing the router's setup page:

open IE, then type http://192.168.1.1 on your address bar, it will ask you for a username and password, thats both admin (these steps will depend if you have changed the settings on the router)

once opened, go to the wireless tab, change your Wireless Network Name (SSID) to something esle instead of Linskys, like your name perhaps. then set the channel to 11ghz and hit save settings.

now look for a Wireless Security SUBTAB, enable to wireless security, under security mode select WPA-Personal (PSK) set your algorithm to TKIP and make up a password on the blank space that says Passphrase / Pre Shared Key , that will be you wireless security code. now hit save settings.

in connecting your wireless laptop, make sure the wireless adapter on the device is enabled and it will automatically locate the wireless network and wil ask you for the security code, once you place it, you will get connection.
