    sorry really stupid but how do i uninstall the network drivers also if i did a reset of the router would i have to reconnect my sons xbox again. sorry not good with computers

  • michellephil Feb 12, 2009

    still trying to do this, im beginning to think that my router is preventing me from connecting, as when i tried to get into another network it did ask me for a wep key which my network is not asking for but it is saying that i need one. Also i managed to connect to a unsecured network but the connection kept dropping as it was a very low signal.(only done this to see if it was a problem with my laptop) . so i will try what you said might have to get someone in to do it though, thanks for your advice will let you know

I want to connect my laptop to the wireless network i have found network but it is asking for akey where do i find it and what is it?


A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks. WEP keys allow a group of devices on a local network (such as a home network) to exchange encoded messages with each other while hiding the contents of the messages from easy viewing by outsiders.

Search your ISP (Internet Service Provider) into the list of Available Wireless networks and connect it.If it still asks for the key then you need to call up the ISP for the key. Because they provide you wih the key whe you purchase internet connection from them.

1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses. This is done at the command prompt.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. enter router by either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 depending on the router instructions set.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.

This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

I have two laptops one wont connect to the internet explorer web


Very vague problem description.
Check the WGR614 settings, you may have activated the MAC address filter for wireless that allows only devices with known addresses to connect to the router.
Next is DHCP settings, is your router set up to provide IP addresses to devices (recommended) or is it set to static IPs? Your laptop must match this in its own network settings.
What about WLAN security? Is your laptop able to match the security settings of the router? Some older wireless devices do not support advanced encryption (TKIP, AES, ...) or any protocols beyond WEP.
Also very common: is the WLAN radio activated on your laptop? Sometimes success is just a gentle push away on an innocent looking switch at the laptop's edge.

Trying to connect asus netbook to wireless connection


Hello,

If you open your Network window from the start menu, at the top you will see "Add a wireless device". Follow the instructions and this should get your wireless connection with WEP key add. (When you select your router, you will need the WEP key at hand. You can get this by going to the web page of your routers IP address.) Good Luck.

Connecting to woreless internet connection


Be sure you use same security protocol on your PC than in your WLAN:
WEP or WPA or WPA2 protocol
Passphrase (PSK ) or Password
TKIP or AES.
Use same Key.Passphrase on your notebook as in your Access point.
Check if your Access point/router has access list enabled: either you disable it in your AP either you add your PC MAC address to the list.

My eee pc 900 series wont conect to internet


Your computer is asking for the WEP key which is the security key setup at installation so anyone who wants to enter your network must know the password. Check the simple things first, like your CAPs Lock key is off, Num Lock key is off, double check you are typing in the correct password. You can change the WEP key with the software that came with the wireless installation.
