    I've tried that but it brings me to a page asking for a security key or passphrase and says "the person who setup the network can you give you the key or passphrase". I'm not even sure who up the network. How do I find the key or passphrase?

    by the way, my router is a Netopia 3000

  • lee096 Jan 25, 2009

    Hmmm, maybe I'm just not getting it. It picks up the network and even says my connection is excellent but won't allow me onto the Internet because it needs this security key or passphrase. By the way, I really appreciate your assistance.

Click on the start button in the lower left hand corner of the screen. Then click on connect to. There you should be able to add your wireless network and connect to the internet.

I have a new computer and need to enter the pass code to the router.

If you mean the wireless passkey, to see it you'll need to enter to setup mode of router normally done by an Ethernet (wired) connection, at the wireless setup tab you can see the defined passkey, also SSID (wireless network name) cyphering type, etc.

I just got a new laptop and I am trying to connect to the internet through the wireless router. It keeps asking for a passkey but i don't remember what it is.Using a computer already connected, I tried...

well, you were close with addresses you typed in.
The correct one for belkin is:
However, if it's asking you for the passkey, then you probably have to reset the router to factory default...i.e. no security settings or password at all.

But, before you do that, go to one of the 192.168 pages, whichever one asked for a passkey, and just leave the box blank and press enter, see if that allows you access to the router.

That is what it will be if you haven't ever given it a passkey of your own.

I hope this info is helpful, but if you have to, then perform a reset of the router.

To do this, , with the power on you will need to push in and hold the reset button for 10-15 seconds. The hole for the reset button will be located on the back or on the side of the unit, it is a small hole, so you will need to use a paper clip
Afetr 10-15 seconds of holding the button in, remove the paper clip, and wait 60 seconds.

Your router is now reset back to factory original

Check the security settings in Router. If you applied any Passkey then try to change with new one. Try in ipod with new passkey. It should connect to router.

Probably your network is secured so you will need to configure connection (provide WEP or WPA passkey to connect).
Double click on wireless network name you wish to connect and put encryption key

Windows 7 and D-Link DSL-2640R router. I have recently bought a new laptop which supports windows 7, the talktalk cd will not work so i do not know my routers settings. Well my internet connection always...

I presume that your internet was working fine before you bought your new laptop. Unless you've done something to change it it should still be working as before.
You shouldn't need a CD - if you think about it you don't need a CD when you log in in Starbucks so why should you need one at home?
The only thing you need to know is the router's wireless name; Talktalk 12345etc, and its password - which is the password your son is using.
I can't explain why you can't connect when your son is connected - as the router should be able to host 253 laptops (very very slowly mind) - unless the router has been set with an access list that only allows his laptop to connect.

Getting the security to go through on laptop

You just need to re-enter the passkey you set-up on the router to re-connect.

If you don't know this, go into the router configuration page (you may need to use a physical network cable to do this) and reset the passkey to a new one.

Trying to connect between cable pc xp edition and new dell vista laptop

the SSID is only the name which your connection is called.
If you have security enabled, you will need to type in the passkey when asked.

First go to internet explorer open it and go to tools>connections tab, then tick 'never dial a connection' and close I. Explorer.

go to control panel>network connections>right click on your wireless connection icon, then go to the TCP/IP line, highlight it, click properties, then select 'Obtain IP address automatically.

Select Ok, then close window, go to internet explorer, then open it up and you may need to click refresh a few times ,but should connect
