You need the SSID (network name). This is typically broadcast so you can scan for it and select it. In some rare cases your SSID is not broadcast. If you are in an area with a lot of networks, you can unplug your wireless and see which one goes away if you are unsure. You will need the network passphrase if it is encrypted. The TF's get confused in the handshake and a router reboot helps fix the issues. If this doesn't work, reset your router by using a paper clip and push in the little reset button in the back for 10 sec. once that is done, go to your router home page and setup all the information all over again. Write down your SSID and password.

Not connecting to the internet


Router ?

Problems authenticating a router in a computer is a common problem when installing a router or if your internet service gets disrupted. It is easy to solve and only requires a few steps to fix. A router forwards data from a computer to a computer network. The network can be between multiple computers, such as one would need in an office. The network can also, and more usually in households, used for connecting to the internet. Open "System Preferences" in the Applications folder in Finder. Open "Network" under "Internet and Wireless." Click "Advanced" and select "TCP/IP." Select "Renew DHCP License" and click ok. Attempt to connect to the internet. If the internet is still not connecting, restart the router and try the steps again. b> For non-Macs b> Open "Wireless Network Connection" from the wireless tab at the bottom of the screen. Select "Change Advanced Settings." Choose the "Wireless Networks" tab. Choose the wireless network you want to connect to and select the "Properties" button. Under the "Association" tab, make sure the Network Authentication has the proper security level chosen. Enter your network key if your security code is anything other than "Open" or "Shared." Select OK and try to connect. Go Back to "Wireless Networks" tab -> "Properties" and click on "Authentication" tab and un-select the "Enable authentication for the network" selection if the network key is still not authenticating the router. Select OK and try to connect.
Hope this helps.

Dell inspiron 8000 password authentication system


Are you talking about the authentication process on trying to connect using wireless?

That means you probably don't have the password or theAuthentication Type set correctly.

For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the WirelessNetwork Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window openclick the Wireless Networks tab. Click on the SSID for your wirelessnetwork that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You canchange the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless routerand you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have itin correctly.

For Windows Vista below:

Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left ofthe open window and click Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of thenetwork that you connect to and double click it. When the window opensclick the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is theAuthentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is thepassword).

For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center thenlook to the left and select Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of thenetwork that you connect to and double click it. When the window opensclick the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is theAuthentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is thepassword).

Wireless network connection, Intel (r) pro/wireless 2200bg says not connected. How do I get it to say connected? I have disabled it and then enabled it and to my surprise it still says not connected- How...


Try these first:

Make sure that the wep password is correct.

change channels to 1-6-or 11.

check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
