Question about 3Com Wireless Lan Access Point M/n:wl-450 3crwe875075a

Open Question

3COM WL-450. After install and setting WEP, can't log on. It works fine when open but not with WEP.

After installing and setting up the access point, can't log on. When the security is set to open with WEP off we can connect, however when WEP is selected and a key is installed, we can not connect. Have tried three different devices.

try using predefined IP addresses. Let each pc make it's own IP address and see if the conflicts continue, if they do, post again. :)

Ya can try to log into it with the ethernet cable as their wil be an ethernet LAN port onthe access point. I f ya know the default or the present ip of AP then ya can assign a static ip of the same range to yor computer like eg. ap is 192.168 .1.1 then your comp can have 192.168.1.10 and ya can log into it thru the ethernet cable and disable the security. i hope ya know how to assign a staic ip add to yor compuetr. or check the screen shots on brivers.com n select the "network connections" screen shots to assign a static ip address to yor' comp. feel free to chat with me on samrat101 thru yahoo or msn messenger or drop a mail on samrat101@yahoo.com for ny wless n ipphone issues -- take care ,, samrat

SOURCE: cannot find key or passphrase for the 3com access

Key's are usually installed by the one that installed the Wireless, if you are the one that installed it try to login into the router and disable the security or change it.

I want to connect to a router.how do do it


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

I need to secure my home wirless network


1) Secure your wireless router or access point administration interface
Almost all routers and access points have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings. Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all. As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else. You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed. Without it, the only way to access the router or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.

2) Don't broadcast your SSID
Most WLAN access points and routers automatically (and continually) broadcast the network's name, or SSID (Service Set IDentifier). This makes setting up wireless clients extremely convenient since you can locate a WLAN without having to know what it's called, but it will also make your WLAN visible to any wireless systems within range of it. Turning off SSID broadcast for your network makes it invisible to your neighbors and passers-by (though it will still be detectible by WLAN "sniffers").

3)Enable WPA encryption instead of WEP
802.11's WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) encryption has well-known weaknesses that make it relatively easy for a determined user with the right equipment to crack the encryption and access the wireless network. A better way to protect your WLAN is with WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). WPA provides much better protection and is also easier to use, since your password characters aren't limited to 0-9 and A-F as they are with WEP. WPA support is built into Windows XP (with the latest Service Pack) and virtually all modern wireless hardware and operating systems. A more recent version, WPA2, is found in newer hardware and provides even stronger encryption, but you'll probably need to download an XP patch in order to use it.

4) Reduce your WL-AN transmitter power
You won't find this feature on all wireless routers and access points, but some allow you lower the power of your WL-AN transmitter and thus reduce the range of the signal. Although it's usually impossible to fine-tune a signal so precisely that it won't leak outside your home or business, with some trial-and-error you can often limit how far outside your premises the signal reaches, minimizing the opportunity for outsiders to access your WL-AN.

5) Disable remote administration

Most WL AN routers have the ability to be remotely administered via the Internet. Ideally, you should use this feature only if it lets you define a specific IP address or limited range of addresses that will be able to access the router. Otherwise, almost anyone anywhere could potentially find and access your router. As a rule, unless you absolutely need this capability, it's best to keep remote administration turned off

Thanks
Have great day

I dont know how to get internet on my ds lite


Nintendo? You have to have a WEP key...and if your wireless encryption is not set up with a WEP key, if it has a WPA or a WPA-2 key, it won't work. You have to change the encryption on your wireless (either router or modem, whichever you are using) ...open a browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, put in your password, and change the encryption type to WEP...then put the settings in the DS.

Wirless router


The last thing you want to do is get rid of the password - operating an unsecured WiFi network can be very hazardous to your privacy & finances! You need to set the WEP password in the PC's. If you install the 3Com router software and use that to set things up, it will guide you through doing the job.

Also, it's better to use WPA encryption rather than WEP which is now regarded as insecure and little better than nothing at all. If you can get it working OK on WEP, it'd be easy enough to change it to WPA in the router & then change the setup on the PC's.

Unless you live in the back of beyond, this really is necessary I'm afraid :{

There are actually 3 models of the WL-542. Go to this page and select "All downloads" in the section matching your model. You will find the exact model number on a sticker on the side or under your WL-542.
