Asked your friend for the network key that he/she setup for the wireless network work. If he/she dont remember it. Try to access the configuration page of your router (192.168.0.1) and reconfigure your wireless setting in the router. By default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.

If inside the the configuration page of the router Click Home > click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).

For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

> Click on apply
> Click on continue.
Try accessing your wireless network using your wireless computer.

How can my friend connect to my network


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I cant get my psp on because it keeps askin me for my wpa key! where do i find that. its not on my router.


Hi Friend, In this case UI would like to tell you that the WPA key is the same password that you use to connect to the Internet wirelessly from your system.
The WPA key is the password that you set for the wireless network at your home. So, I would recommend you to try and enter the wireless network name's password

Acer aspire one d255 hi,ihave new aspire bun not connected in network


Hi Friend,

While connecting to your network if it asks for a network key and if you are not aware of that, please follow the steps:

Type 192.168.1.1 in the web browser and hit enter. If you have not changed the router password then kindly enter admin as the password and leave the username blank and hit enter.

In the router setup page click Wireless and click Wireless Security. Whatever the security mode is selected you will get the shared key over there which you can use while connecting your laptop.

Wireless connection to belkin g router model no. f5d7230-4


You need to access the setup page of the router using connected computer.

In your browser's address bar, type 192.168.2.1.

By default, leave the password blank.

On the Belkin setup page, go to Wireless.

Take note of the SSID. This is the name of your wireless connection.

Then go to Security under Wireless. Copy the network key.

On your friend's laptop, view the available wireless networks, you should see the SSID, then just enter the network key.

I hope this helps!

Hi Friend,
U need to make your wireless network a security enabled network & don't share the wireless network key to a unreliable person.

Steps to create a security enabled wireless network:-

1> login to router setup page;bydefault ip address of belkin router is 192.168.0.1/192.168.2.1
2> Open a internet browser on a hardwired desktop/laptop connected to your router,clear the address bar completely and then type 192.168.0.1 or, 192.168.2.1<it depends on your model no of your router>
3> Go to Wireless Tab,changed the wireless network name(SSID)
4> Change the wireless network key as well;it will be good if you use WEP key if you old XP computer,otherwise use WPA-TKIP if you vista/win7 computers
5> Lastly on your computers,you have to seach wireless network name & give the wireless network key(for the very first time)

In case of any clarity feel free to contact belkin tech support

Can't connect to friends network


Hi,

They are four reasons why your wireless would say "acquiring network address" and later changing into "Limited or no connectivity"

1) Invalid WEP/WPA Encryption key.
2) Mac Filtering, Your friends might have disallowed the mac address of your laptop or he it might be filtered.
3) Short IP range mentioned on the router (May your friend has specified a short ip address range for DHCP)
4) Invalid configuration for wireless on Windows Vista

To this problem, do this on your laptop

1) Start >> Control Panel >> Network and Sharing Center (Classic View) >> Manage Wireless network>> remove the wireless network by clicking and then right clicking on top of it and remove.
2) Now try to connect again to the wireless network, reenter the key and that should do it.

If this doesn't work, then probably you have to ask your friend about the 2 and 3 possible cause listed above.


Good luck!
And Thanks.
