If your wireless router uses encryption, make sure you have the correct key (exactly) on the laptop. It might help to view the key you entered in the router by using the router admin page and then print or copy/paste this key. Would need more info to troubleshoot further.

While setting up a new laptop, want to connect to the wireless network. Upon entering the SecurityID, I got a message about the "Security ID mismatch". I re-entered it to be sure it was correct...

It's actually telling you that your security encryption doesn't match between the router and laptop. Not that the passwords don't match. If you have it set up as WPA2 Personal on the laptop, it has to be setup exactly the same on your wireless router.

  5. Click on "Search for an Access Point."

  6. The Nintendo DSi will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks it finds. Look for your wireless network. (If you're not sure which is yours, or you don't see any wireless networks, click here.)

  7. What to do next will depend on the "lock" icon you see next to your network on the Nintendo DSi. Click the image below that matches the lock icon you see on the screen of your Nintendo DSi.

My computer will not connect to the internet when I hook up to the Linksys wrt150n I don,t understand It because it use to work this is about to drive up the wall I have tried resetting the router but it...

If you can connect to the Internet using the LAN cable then your Internet connection is OK.
If you are trying to connect to the Internet using the wireless connection, then your problem is the wireless settings in either the Linksys or the wireless card in your computer.
First check the wireless settings in the Linksys, ie. the SSID and encryption key.
Second check the wireless settings in the computer's wireless card, this must match the route's wireless settings. If it matched then do a Repair connection. this will get the Linksys to issue a new IP address to the wireless
If the Linksys wireless settings were changed then configure the wireless card in the computer with these new settings.

My WUSB54GSC network adapter worked Ok for six months but now keeps saying limited or no connectivity. Tried unin stalling and resetting. Hasn't worked - same problem keeps coming back.

If the wireless security on the router is enabled, then the pre-shared key or encryption key on the router and PC should match.

You will need to check the settings on the wireless router to confirm this.

Settings saved do not match requirements on this computer

Go into network connections on the laptop and select the Wireless Network. Go into properties and find the TCP/IP settings and ensure that the IP address setting is set to Automatic and the DNS settings also. If you have wireless security set on the router you will have to set that up on the laptop as well.

Try checking if the laptop's wireless button is switched to on. It helps a lot! On my laptop, you have to switch a button to turn the wireless on. If i don't it's impossible to get a connect.

hope this helps :)
