    You have to log onto the wrouter itself, and then go to the setup page for wireless security.



    If you are trying to simply join this network and leech, good luck.

I have wep on my i pad but router is wps


WPS is not a security feature, it just makes set-up easier. It works with devices that have a push button connect feature. Not all devices have that, but all devices can be added manually.

Your iPad can be logged into the router's wireless network, probably WPA or WPA2 (more secure) by using the iPad's on-board network tool.

First: (if this is not already done) Log into your router software. Locate your Wireless Network Set-up page & give your wireless network a unique name, like "Molly McGee" or some such, so you can identify yours from the neighbors.
Set up a shared password in the wireless network panel. Save this information for your household. Write it all down so you can use it to add new devices later.
Also note what type of Security scheme you are setting up (WPA, WPA2 personal etc- some devices ask for this info)

When the Wireless network is configured: On your iPad, go to Settings> Wi-Fi, Choose your network, this should open a panel so you can enter the shared password. Enter it and you should be good to go.

If you live in a very insecure place such as an apartment complex or over a retail space etc, you can choose to make your network invisible to outsiders. If you do this, you will have to ask to join the network each time you disconnect from it. You can easily locate and join it with the specific network name and security info- but creepers won't see your network and try to get in.

My son went to youtube and found a video on how to change WPA to WEP. Now my network is not working on my printer and laptop


you need to reconfigure your printer and laptop to WEP but I don't recommend it as WEP is terrible and easy to crack.
connect to your router via cat 5
open internet explorer and browse to http://192.168.1.1
login with the default login is blank. pass is admin.
go to wireless and to wireless security.
change it back to WPA personal.
change the passphase for the wireless password.
use the new passphase you created and tell your printer/laptop to join your wireless network
you may want to change your wireless password too so your son won't reconfigure your router again.
do this by going to administration and change the password there.

What is a security key


WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is an advancement over WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). While connecting to a home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key or a password to which users often ask, "How Do I Find My Computer's WPA Key?" WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is advancement over(Wired Equivalent Privacy) Wep is standard that had several security issues. WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard and provides greater security than WEP.
While connecting to your home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key. This WPA key is either located in the modem or in the router you are using. In order to find your computer's WPA key, follow the steps given below:
How to find your computer's WPA key Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.
Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.
To Reset a modem/router, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.
Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.
Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.
On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.
If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long. For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN\/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBD\m+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGI\RVz4RdQ7V3y\l$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.
Note: The procedure shown above is common to most of the modems/routers. If this doesn't apply to you, check your modem/router's manual to find the wireless security option.

How do i get my internet on my ipod?


Hey there,

Its a relatively simple process to enable internet on your Ipod. To do this you are going to need a little bit of information. You'll need: your routers Broadcast name (SSID), and your WEP or WPA/2 password.

Now follow these steps:

  1. Turn on your iPod. Ads by Google
    '; for(i = 0; i '+ '' + google_ads[i].line1 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
    ' + '' + google_ads[i].visible_url + ''; } s += ""; document.write(s); return; } google_ad_channel = '+7733764704+1640266093+9911500640+2974691118+9016233241+8388126455+8941458308+6876289738+7122150828' + xchannels + gchans; google_ad_client = "pub-9543332082073187"; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_ad_type = 'text'; google_feedback = 'on'; google_ad_region = "test"; google_ad_format = '250x250_as'; //-->
  2. If not at the home screen, press home button.
  3. Tap settings button.
  4. Tap "wi-fi".
  5. If broadcasting your ssid, choose from the 'choose a network' list.
  6. Tap 'security' if you are using security and select your security type.
  7. Tap the 'other network' button to get back to network setting.
  8. Type in your security password, which is your key in your wireless modem setting. (*Important: if your using WEP security type, you must use key 1 from your wireless modem setting. If your using WPA or WPA2 security types then use the WPA Passphrase)
  9. Click 'join' after you have typed in your security password.
  10. Your network name (ssid) should show in 'choose a network' with a check mark next to it.

If there are any more problems feel free to get in touch.

All the best :)

Ipod keeps saying unable to join the network


I've had this problem many times with my iPod, and am still having it. If you are using a password on your network, such as WEP, WPA, WPA2, I think it may have issues connecting to a network using WPA2.

Also, check online for updates to your iPod firmware, this can sometimes include fixes for these kinds of problems.

Other Reasons:
Too far away from router
Router is using unsupported signal - Wireless N
You are entering the password incorrectly

Ipod touch won't connect to my wifi


things to check again:
1- if DHCP enabled 2- which type of security encryption is used, if WEP change to WPA, use numbers instead of mixed characters for wifi password 3- if MAC filtering is on on the router 4- if signal strength is good
hope that any one of the above solves your problem

My ipod touch wont connect to my buffalo router. My laptop does though. I select the router from the a list on my ipod, and then I enter the password. Then, I get a pop-up that says "Unable to join...


Try a different kind of wireless encryption on your router. This will probably fix it. If your password is wep, try wpa. If it's wpa, try wep. If you don't know what the heck I'm talking about.....let me know :)
