Hopefully network key will be located in the install instructions that came with adapter, if not that lucky, you mind find the "key" on a sticker on bottom or back of the router u r trying to connect to, copy the info down, then when installing device u see the network detected that you wish to connect to, select it, and click to connect,, then enter the requested info, as it asks for it to setup,, easy enuff,, but ,,, if key not found,,, and you are installing the router at the same time,, it can really be a bummer,, fortunately some routers/devices have eased the pain by having a button you push (generally on both devices you are trying to network),,when pushed basically opens the doors and drop the encryption/barriers to make the connection for you,,, if no magic buttons on hardware, and if u cant locate the key info u need you may have to call your Internet provider if the router/connection is their equipment,, like Cox cable , etc,, they will generally walk you thru the proceedure to do the hook up no prob,,, but if not their provided router/equipment,, you went out and bought ur own modem , router, as well as the wireless adapter,, ur on ur own,, you might give a call and/or make a visit back to the store you purchased it from and have them see if they can help ,,,, lastly,, if none of these suggestions work for you ,,, then it can be very dificult to get right if attempting to do by yourself ,, you would have to first access the setup/config of the router using provided Install utility CD from Manufacturer of the router, if no Disk is available sometimes you can access the router and go online to their site by connecting the router to your PC using a Lan cable, open your browser window and typing it's default IP address into the browsers address window box,,you can look that info up for specific devices by name of manufacturer and model number, generally there is default ssid and key assiged from factory for intial setup you can look up and use,, if the network is already existing and u are merely joining it for your first time you will need all the info that has been modified from the defailt and is currently assigned by network admin. or service provider,,, you might try using the usual IP address that is generally the default,,, type "" into browser address bar and press "enter" and it should go to the routers online config program,, if so,, try"admin" for user name and "admin" if password is required to sign into their site,, then just fill in the blanks to enter the info it requests, assigning ur own choice of SSID (network name) or using ssid default which are usually name of router manufacturer like linksys, or dlink etc and u can do auto assign the key and use usb drive or disks to copy the info to network users when using lan wired connections or just choose ur own "network key/password" to manually assign key to the router/network,, be sure to keep notes and save the info u will need to install other device, then save and close out program,you can enter the same SSID and Key and which type of encription used in order to ensure matching settings when doing the setup and network configuration,of your network for computer's device ,,, I warned you,,, this last way can be really confusing,, hopefully you will get lucky, and find the key on the router and wont have to get that involved,, if you do have bad luck and are forced to resort to last method. I'd recommend getting professional assistance or at least hands on help, from a more experienced installer,,, hopefully you will find the info on the router somewhere and u can just type that in when asked by ur install program,,, lol ... good luck

How to connect my wii to my dell xps400

Desktop computers are not known for their wireless connectivity, but it is possible to make yours one that is.

Wireless network adapters, which enable your desktop to pick up wireless Internet signals, come in a variety of forms, and are all fairly easy to install.

Once you have one installed, getting online wirelessly is almost effortless.

Choose the network adapter that is right for you.

The easiest network adapters to connect do so via USB, but if you have limited USB ports on your desktop, you may want to try another option.

There are also network adapters that plug into your Ethernet port, but if you want to use that port for a landline connection you have, and wireless is your backup, then this also may not work for you.

If that is the case, you can buy an add-in card, which fortunately for Dell owners is very easy to install.

Dell computers are designed to be opened and have add-in cards installed without the use of screwdrivers; check your manual for details.

Install the network adapter and any included software.

The adapter will usually come with a software CD with a notice to run the CD either before or after you have plugged in or installed your adapter.

Go through the setup steps on the CD, click "Finish" when it is complete, and your wireless network adapter should then be activated and ready to receive wireless signals.

Click the notification that pops up letting you know that wireless networks are available; or, if there is no notification, go "Start > Connect To" and all available networks will be displayed.

Double-click on the logo for the network you want to connect to and enter the security key if it is a secure network.

(If you set the network up, you should have the security key saved somewhere with your network settings.

If you are connecting to a nearby hotspot, you will need to ask the permission of whoever set up the connection and obtain the security key from that person.)

Select "Home," "Work" or "Public Location" when prompted to designate what type of network connection this is.

You will then be asked if you want your computer to remember this computer and start it automatically in the future.

If you plan to use this connection regularly, it is a good choice to check the boxes next to both options so that the connection will always be available and you won't have to enter a security key for it again.

Hope this helps.

Hi I just re installed windows vista I can't find


If you just reinstalled Win Vista, you should have the activation key on the box in which the disk came. It may actually not be on the back, but on the top near the opening. Look for Microsoft's official seal, with the 3D logo on it.

If you absolutely cannot find it, try to start and activate Vista and when asked for the activation key, look for the option that gives you Microsoft's phone number - toll free - for activation.

Explain the loss of the key, but let them know you have some identification numbers from the CD/DVD sleeve. If they can authenticate your purchase, then they will help you activate by phone, usually for no charge, on a one-time only basis.

You might need to copy down whatever key they give you, or ask them to speak slowly so you can key in what they give you.

That is the best advice I can give you.

I have an eee 701 and I always had trouble connecting to any wireless internet. In some routers works fine, and in others does not connect. I had linux and change it to XP and the problem remains. Is there...

The problem your experiencing is all about the settings of your wireless connection. You need to keep in mind that there are factors that affects the wireless connectivity like Physical Barries and Network Security. for physical barries example of these are wall, cordless phones, central heating device, Thread mills and othe devices using 2.4GHz signal for network security you need to know if the network is secured, we have WEP, WPA.WPA2 and Open or no security.

Make sure you know the settings of your router then connect your laptop to it. if it ask you the netwrok key or password access the wireless settings page of your router and look for the network key and make sure that your connecting to your router or network name (SSID).

Thanks for using Fixya.

No power

The light on the adapter indicates if there is network activity.

Check in device manager if the adapter is properly installed. Right click my computer, then select properties. Go to the Hardware tab and click Device manager.

If there is a yellow exclamation point on the USB adapter then you may need to reinstall the Linksys adapter.

If the Linksys adapter is installed properly, then check the wireless network connections if it is connected.

To ensure that you are connected to your wireless network, you will need to know the settings on your wireless router or access-point. Take note of the wireless network name (SSID) and the wireless security and network key.

If you are using the Linksys Wireless Utility, go to Site survey, select your SSID then click connect. Type the network key if wireless security is enabled.

If you are using the default wireless connection on your computer, just right click the wireless network connection icon on the system tray (lower right conner of your screen, near the clock), then select view available wireless networks. Select your SSID, then click connect and type the network key (if wireless security is enabled).

Hope this helps! Good luck!

I am connected with a wireless network but i can not access the internet in says secure certificate.. what is the best thing to do

This sounds like you have wep security enabled and don't have the correct wep key programmed. Check your router to see if it is set to require a WEP key, if it is select the option to show you characters for the key then look at your computer netwrok settings and ensure that the same WEP key is being provided by your computer when it logs into the router. This should solve the problem. You can also get the WEP key information from your service provider if they installed the wep key remotely which is a common practice.
