Can not find a non secure signal

I have used my card for 2 years and i am always able to get mutiple signals that I can connect through. Last night i was online for a while and shut down. Decided to go back online a few hours later and netgear cant find a non secure connection. The connections it finds ask for key codes. Are there default key codes? what should I do?

Hi..
sadly to say but there are no default key codes,its usually setup by the person who has setup the wireless networks,people are becoming more and more aware of the consequences of unsecured networks so most of them are securing the wireless networks,you can try connecting your laptop wirelessly to hotspot areas like airport,cafe and other places..incase if you want wireless internet from home and if you have mobile connection from verizon or sprint then you can get in touch with them and get wireless mobile broadband which will be your own wireless network and you donot have to depend upon someone elses unsecured network and the advantage of this type of wireless card is you can use the internet outside the home as well as when you are travelling...

My WiFi losses the siganal at least once a Night Why?


There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

I live nextdoor too a library which i am using them too connect my laptop with out a router.(eg: PC direct to Libra y router) yesterday it was super fast,but today it's slow i've tried all kinds of speed...


a great post and funny to read about snagging wifi.
lots of kids make a dish at school and use wifi from large distances.
so you are home right,. not in the library , right, and now expect the Libraries wifi to be fast at home , that far away,.
well it will never be fast ever. like that.
if you have a router that is 2 bands, there is no better routers.
the library only runs 2 bands I bet or even just 1.
so why not buy your own internet service,
or rig up this.

you can use a colander from moms kitchen

or other dish shaped objects to make this dish..
they need to be focused. and pointed to the library to work.
even card board, cut to a dish and aluminum foil works,

all this is fun stuff,
but never reliable.
at night they can have there router go off, on a timer.

Router says connected, laptop picks up signal with excellent strength. But when try to connect says unable to...have used this connection for a few years now and suddenly went off last night


k i understood your problem. try below.. 1. Restart your computer and chk whether you can go online. 2. If still not online, go to command prompt, type in ipconfig and press enter, if u see an IP address, subnet mask and gateway, then u need an either a firmware update/ a reset. 3. Contact belkin support which is a toll free number, they will assist you futher.

TV was working mon I shut it off in the morning that night no power. I get the signal on the tv but nothing else


if you can hear the signal for the channel you are on, and you just have no picture, then your inverter board is most likely bad. No power at all would be the main board. These things last about 2 years.

I have acer aspire series computer for 2 years.one day when i open my computer my monitor display no signal what are the reasons


Hi! it means that the monitor is not picking any signal from the tower or computer.Check all physical cables first esp the video cable from the monitor to the tower.Check if the computer has power by checking lights, sound coming of the machine. Check if monitor cable is securely plugged in to the vga or hdmi port.If you are using a adapter for that cable try to directly plugin the cable without using the adapter.If still no signal, check if you have a external video card or internal.if you have a external video card and thats the one that youre using then remove the external video card(you need to open up the tower and physically remove the external video card) and connect the video cable to the onboard card then check if will get a signal.hope this helps...
