    I have keyed the key a million times and it just does tries to connect and never make a connection. I have two other laptops hooked up the network....one is a Compaq Presario CQ50-142US PC Notebook and the other one is an HP G60-235DX Notebook PC

    Will try that...........thanks!

  • My reply is May 11, 2010

    Is it possible for you to try and connect directly with an ethernet cable?

    Borrow one from one of the other laptops if you don't have a spare.

  • My reply is May 11, 2010

    Have you checked the WEP key (usually found on the base or bak of the router)?

  • Prabs Pan May 11, 2010

    make sure you have the key right. if it dosnt work try resetting the router. be very carefull....read the instruction b4 tring to reset. or maybe simply it just dose not use the same encryption as you router.

Usually when I get problems like this upgrading the router firmware and performing a windows update on the laptop will address it.

Do you know how to do this?

Unplug power to ISP modem, till you see it reboot. Test with a cable to establish you can connect directly with ISP modem. If OK, reconnect with wireless modem. You will have to switch between wireless and regular network adapter on laptop for this test.

Use these instructions to test and see IP's.Go to Start > Search > Type cmd and hit enter key.
In Command Shell:


Type ipconfig /all These are your IP settings.
Type ipconfig /release To clear IP settings.
Type ipconfig /renew For new IP settings.

You will need to check NIC drivers in Device Manager if problem persists.

Acer doesn't connect to protected wireless internet


It looks like you've keyed it in once, but you keyed it in wrong, so the system thinks the security key is there.

Which Operating System?

You can try connecting to another secured network and see if it asks for a security code, then try going back to your network.

Try getting to the security code by going to the wireless network connection and highlighting your network then click properties.

My new laptop doesn't work


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I cannot get my new dell mini inspiron to connect to the linksys wireless router in the home network. it cannot even detect the network. How do I fix this?


Have you been able to connect your netbook to other wireless networks? Do you have anything else connected to your home wireless network? Can you see your home wireless network using a different computer?

If you can't see other wireless networks check to make sure your wireless card didn't get shut off. Usually there's an on/off switch on a laptop to do this, or a combination of function keys.

If you can see other wireless networks and just not your own, try the wireless network's settings on the router. If you do have some type of security, I'd start off troubleshooting with no security, then move up to WEP, then WPA, then WPA2 in that order, or at least as high as you can get with the options available on your router. It might be that your wireless network is too secure for what your Mini 10 can handle.

More than likely if you haven't downloaded the correct drivers, maybe?
As it works with the LAN cable, I would think the pc must be OK, I would check the settings for the router and re boot the laptop.
Hope that helps.

I just got a new hp notebook. I have an ehterfas linksys router.


Make sure that the wireless switch is on (usually indicated by a blue light). Then go to control panel>network and sharing center>connect to a network>choose your network name>type in the security key if you have one and connect. Alternate method: Right click on the wireless icon on the system tray at the lower right hand where the time is and choose connect to a network, choose the network name and type the security key of your network then connect.

Connecting to the internet is a security risk. Hence, at all places you have to supply the WEP key to be able to log into the WiFi network. At home you have already done it hence you are able to connect. The WEP key in hotels and restaurants is most probably on payment. Or, at least you have to give your identity to be able to use it.

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.
