Can't connect to a wireless network

I am trying to connect to a wireless network. The laptop is seeing the network and when I click on connect I get the window asking for the wep (it is 10 digits). There is already an eight digit password in the box so I click in the box enter the 10 digit wep, confirm it and click on connect. It won't connect and when I try again, the same process starts over again. Am I missing something. I would appreciate any help that can get me through this. Thanks

You didn't post the Make , Model of Wireless Device. Try a reset ot the Wireless device returning it to default settings and reconfigure the SSID and the Security Key. Setup the Wireless for WPA2-PSK security it's a bit more secure.

SOURCE: Another problem... wireless router Allied Telesyn wa1104g

I have intalled hundreds of linksys routers, so when I heard such a problem described above, I though it would be just a system error due to the OS messed up. but with the new router WRT160N, I actually had that problem. they raised security level (especially for WEP), but the router doesn't have options for it in configuration. so, we will have to set our computers manually to make work with it.
Do manual setup by typing SSID, Security mode, Key.... and make sure to disable 802.11x security.

SOURCE: My Linksys will not connect to my WII

Well the first thing is that you have WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. So first you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router. Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's web site. Connect your computer to the router. Open the router page. Click on Administration tab. Just below administration you will find firmware upgrade subtab. If you click on it, you will find the browse option. Browse the file that you have downloaded from the web site. and Click upgrade.
For WII, you will also need to change the MTU to 1365 and open some port numbers on the router.

Power on the laptop computer and wait for the operating system to boot before proceeding.


Right-click the wireless icon in the lower right corner of the desktop.

From the pop-up menu select "Enable."

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 dell vostro A860 cannot connect to wi-fi.am usin windows 7.wat might be the problem?


Wireless Internet has become increasingly popular as a means of connecting to the Internet. Wireless networking allows for users to connect to the Internet without having to physically plug anything into the computer. If you are not able to connect to any wireless Internet connections, it is important to take a few simple troubleshooting steps on your own to understand the cause of the issue and resolve it.

1.Try connecting to multiple wireless networks. The first step in diagnosing a lack of wireless connectivity is to try more than one wireless network. This will give you an idea of whether the problem is with your laptop or just with the single wireless network to which you are trying to connect. Take your Dell D600 to one or more free public wifi hotspots and try connecting wirelessly there. If you are able to connect to other wireless networks, the issue is more likely with the single wireless network you first tried to connect to; contact the person that manages that network to resolve the connectivity issue.
2.Verify that your wireless card is enabled. If you are not able to connect to any wireless network, it is important to make sure that your laptop's wireless components are enabled. All modern laptops come with what is called a radio button, a way to enable or disable your laptop's wireless card with the touch of a button. The Dell D600 has the radio button assigned to the F2 key. To make sure it is enabled, hold down the Fn key on the bottom row of the keyboard and press the F2 key. A pop-up window on the laptop should now indicate whether your wireless card is enabled or disabled; make sure it is set to enabled.
3.Verify your wireless card drivers. Navigate to your computer's Device Manager by clicking "Start," right clicking on "My Computer," choosing "Properties," clicking the "Hardware" tab and clicking "Device Manager." Locate "Network Adapters" from the list of hardware devices and click the "+" icon next to it to expand its contents. Among the contents, locate anything with "Wireless adapter" in the name and check to see if it shows a "?" "X" or "!" over the name. If it does, or if there is no wireless adapter showing under network adapters, your wireless card may need to be replaced or may need a software-driver update. Contact the manufacturer of your computer or take the laptop to a computer-repair store for further assistance.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Can't connect to wifi. Wifi is visible. The Wifi functions in other netbooks and laptops.


If you see it, you should be able to click on it. Make sure you have the right password, if it asks for one.
If you are unable to connect even if you have the right password, then maybe you connected earlier to that network and something went wrong and some settings are meesed up. We will have to remove these settings, then you can add that network again.
Not sure what operating sytem you have, so I will advise you for both xp and 7 (vista is similar to 7)
XP: http://www.tp-link.com/support/showfaq.asp?id=186
7:
This is the way to do it:
1) Go to Start and click on Control Panel.
2) Proceed to click View network status and tasks in Control Panel window.
3) Network and Sharing Center window will appear, proceed to click Manage wireless networks on left panel.
manage-wireless-networks-win7.jpg4) Manage Wireless Networks window will appear, and here you can see all available wireless network connection profiles. Select the profile , click on Remove to delete the selected profile. That's it!

Then go and view all available networks around, and try to connect again.
