I had this problem, My wirless router is using WEP Authentication with a "Shared Key". I had to change this to either Open or Automatic on the router.

I had this issue, and the D link tech support guy solved it. I had to hook a computer into the router via a cable to start with, as during the process, internet would probably be lost without a cable. Problem is the kc910 RENOIR supports WEP and WPA -PSK/2 encription, not WPA-PSK like I was using with the Dlink Router. We switched encription over to WEP 64 bit, hex, using the router page, and gave a new ten digit numerical key. I wrote the key down. KC910 could now see my network with WEP encription, I entered the new ten digit key, and with dns on the phone set to auto, not static, it was connected. Then I had to go to each laptop etc in the building, and redo the wireless profile using WEP. This meant deleting the old profile, then having the laptop discover it again, this time thru WEP. I inserted the new ten digit key in each case, and all well. here is the process as pasted from the email the Dlink guy sent me. He is a legend.


customer said that he has a new phone but cannot get it connected online wirelessly.

Troubleshooting:
verified that all their computers are able to conenct online wirelessly.
advised customer that we do not have any support for his phone.
had him change the security from his current wpa-psk to just wep.
customer tested the phone when using the wep security.
customer was able to get his phone to work.
checked the wireless pc and tried to have them reconnect to the network.
customer's vista cannot connect to the wireless network.
he brought the pc near the router and he is able to connect to the network.
opened ie and he is ONLINE wirelessly.
customer thanked. call ended.

It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless router before your wireless network adapters. It is better to use WPA (WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK) encryption rather than WEP as it is more secure. However if you wireless clients do not support WPA, use WEP encryption.
Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption. If you are configuring the router from a wireless connection, please be aware that as soon as you enable encryption on the router, you will lose connectivity until you enable encryption on the wireless card you are using.

Note: Your network will slow down and wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead.

Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case), and the password is blank (nothing). Click OK . Select the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.

Step 3 Select Enable next to the WEP radio button. In some router models you need to select WEP in the drop-down menu. For WEP Encryption select 64 or 128-bit encryption. For the Key type select HEX.

Note: 40-bit and 64-bit encryption is the same as well as 104-bit and 128-bit. Please visit http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?prod_id=480 for more info.

Step 4 Select Key 1. Enter a Hex encryption key that you make up. The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption.

64-bit encryption 10 characters
128-bit encryption 26 characters
256-bit encryption 58 characters (optional)

The encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters.

Step 5 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.

Step 6 You wireless computers will now need to be re-configured to use WEP with the same key and re-connect to the wireless network.

Hi can you please help me with this matter how do i reset my phone as i cant get on the internet i think i am conected to wifi


Connect to wifi, then open a web page to a new page. Do you see something that asks you to connect, or pay money?

If you are at home, you will need to connect your phone to your home wifi connection, and then you have to add the password.

If the phone worked before and nothing has changed, power the phone down, count to 10 and power it back up.

My itel phone does not want to connect to the internet.


Hi Amanda,

In order to access the internet via your cell carrier from smart phones - you need to enable "Mobile Data" in the "Settings". This setting has nothing to do with your ability to send and receive calls, SMS text, Pix, etc. It is for internet access to browse the web, read email, etc.

If you are trying to get access from a WiFi hotspot from such places as local businesses, in your own home - or that of a friend - you'll need to provide the login credentials that may consist of one or more of the following: SSID, Encryption Key, Usage agreement, Username, Password. Most WiFi hotspot require only the first 3 - one or more of which may be provided in a notification on your phone's screen.

If you have problems still, contact you provider to learn where to find these settings on your particular brand and model phone.

Good luck!
