Re: Message when I try to connect wireless is I need
Check your router configuration under some sort of Wireless Encryption option. Essentially you or someone else set up a "passphrase" on that router which created either 64-bit or 128-bit encrypted keys from that phrase. You'll most likely find this passphrase under the Encryption information.

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. 5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. 6.Note router name you are connecting to. 7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet. This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

If there is any other wireless computer aleady online then the router must be working. If there is no other wireless computer connected tp the network then check the wireless settings of the router.

I suggest try to check the netgear if it is connected to the internet. If the wirelss signal is good, it might be the internet connection is having some issue. What you can try to do first is: 1.connect a computer to the netgear directly using an ethernet cable (RJ45) 2. click start then select runtype cmd (It's a black screen) 3. type ipconfig/all then press enter on your keyboard 4. check the ip address it should be 192.168.X.X and the default gateway is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 depending on the router default ip address 5. on the black screen type ping yahoo.com then enter on the key board
*if there is a "reply from" message it means there is an internet connection going in the router and you need to configure the router. *If the message is "unable to detect" or "request timed out". You need to contact you Internet Service Provider for assistance.
No its not your windows system, try to check again your wireless router if the software firmware are installed properly in your PC. Also to configure it and connect your internet provider to the Router, which is automatically create its own Protocol Address or Obtain Address, even on Wireless connection. This is basic on Wireless Router to connect on the internet. Good luck!
If it's limited or no connectivity, you might have typed the wireless network key incorrectly. It's case sensitive. If you don't have wireless security enabled, you can simply delete the preferred networks on your wireless connection window then disable any firewall you have like windows firewall, norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. Also try to change the channel on your router to 11 and that will solve your issue. Restart the computer after that.

To answer the first question, please provide what kind of operating system you are using, and please provide the exact error message. Its probably just a caution/nag that you don't really have to worry about, but if you provide more information then so can we. For the second question, you will need to setup the WEP on the laptop to get the laptop to connect to the router via wireless, regardless if it was used to setup the router, the wireless network is encrypted so it will need to be accessed by a computer(s) that have the key programmed into them. You can plug in the laptop into the hardwire Ethernet port for configuration, that is another option.
