    Your wireless router needs to be connected to the internet through a modem.

Try to make sure if the router is connected to the modem. In the router, try to make sure that it is using PPPoE.

Won't connect to wifi


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I am having trouble connecting my new laptop to wireless internet. I need to find the 8 digit pin.


you will need to connect direct to your router to figure this one out.connect a network cable from your laptop to your router port 1,2,3 or 4. now open internet explorer and surf to (instead of www) type 192.168.0.1. you should be prompted for username and password. try the were, try admin and leave the password blank. you can configure your wireless settings tab in the web interface. try using settings WPA or WPA 2 and make up a password., once complete. exit the interface, unplug and see if you can connect with your password you set. Note. its a good idea to change the routers defaut password if not done yet.

4> under wireless click on wireless security on the blue bar.
5> select the security mode as WPA-PERSONAL (best encryption and supported by all devices).
6> select WPA ALGORITHUM as TKIP.
7> in WPA Shared Key type: "superman" or any thing else but it should be at least 8 characters long. and you should remember it as this will be your wireless password.

Wireless won't connect to the internet when in WPA TPIP mode


I have found that some routers do not like text and numbers mixed in the password. After having a ton of problems I set up the wireless password to all numbers and haven't had a problem since.

Prior to that the wireless would work for a day or so and then quit. It was frustrating.

Also, when the router calls for text or hexadecimal I have found that they really don't mean text unless it is between A to F, which isn't really text but a hexadecimal number.

So, take the simple approach. Put in all 5's for your password. You can change it later if everything works, but use all 5's just to see if you can get going.

Don't read this part if you already know this.... You have to connect a computer via a hardwire ethernet cable to the router to set the password encryption. I used 192.168.200.1 as the IP address to get to the modem. Put the IP address in your browser address bar and you should come up with a screen that is addressing the modem. Select wireless security or some similar sounding menu item and then make your selections.

After you do this, and before you disconnect the ethernet cable, try to get on to the internet using the hard wired ethernet cable. That will be bypassing the wireless routines. If you can't get on via the ethernet cable direct connection, it is unlikely that you will be able to make the wireless work because there is a problem downstream from your computer -- the modem or perhaps the connection at the street.

Once done you can remove the ethernet cable from your computer. Go to NETWORK CONNECTIONS and properties and set the identical parameters WPA, etc in the properties including the all 5's password.


If you have set the wireless to connect automatically it should connect to the internet.

good luck
