WAP/WEP password not working


These are the two options for your Router. Don't forget to save your settings

WPA is an upgrade to the WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) standard for securing your wireless network. If you would like to secure your wireless network using WPA, you will need the following:

  • WPA enabled on your Dell TrueMobile 2300 Wireless Broadband Router

  • WPA support for your wireless clients. If you are using a Dell TrueMobile wireless client, you can check for the availability of WPA enabled software update for your wireless client at http://support.dell.com.


  1. Log into the Web configuration of your router at http://my.router (or the default address http://192.168.2.1)
  2. Click on Basic Settings.
  3. Click on Wireless Security.
  4. Click on the Enable Wireless Security checkbox.
  5. Select either WEP or WPA in the Network Authentication list.




To setup WPA
  1. Enter your pre-shared key. This key must match the key that is used by each wireless client computer associated to your router.
  2. Choose a key format. This can be hexadecimal digits (0-9, A-F) or ASCII characters (any key on the keyboard).
  3. WPA Group Rekey Interval specifies how often the key rotates or changes.
  4. WPA Encryption allows you to select 1 of 2 possible encryption methods (TKIP and AES) - choose one that your wireless clients supports.
  5. Click NEXT, then Save and Restart to apply the changes.
  6. Setup the WPA on your wireless clients. Refer to the documentation that accompanied your wireless clients, or your wireless clients on-line help system for information on how to setup WPA.

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Says need to update encryrtion key


Hi there,

It sounds like you changed the password for your router's WEP or WPA security key. You need to go into the Network Settings on your PS3 and set up a new internet connection. Once you do that it will ask you for your new WPA or WEP security key.
Hope this helps.

How do i connect to internet with ps3, wireless, what is a wpa key?


WPA stands for Wi-Fi protected access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is advancement over WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) standard that had several security issues. WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard and provides greater security than WEP.

While connecting to your home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key. This WPA key is either located in the modem or in the router you are using. In order to find your computer's WPA key, follow the steps given below:


You can correct this problem by entering the WPA Key into your PSP's Network Settings. But before you do that you need to know what your WPA Key is...


Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.


Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.


To reset a Linksys modem/router or Belkin one, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.


Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.


Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.


On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.


If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long.


For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBDm+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGIRVz4RdQ7V3yl$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.


Note: The procedure shown above is common to most of the modems/routers. If this doesn't apply to you, check your modem/router's manual to find the wireless security option.

PSP Says WEP Key is Incorrect, But That's Untrue


It was a WPA key, not a WEP key. As there were no choices for WPA encryption in the encryption part of the connection process, I think I need to update my PSP using a USB cable.

Dsi wi-fi not work


Make sure you have the correct SSID name and encryption password. Older DSi's had problems connecting to WPA networks. Your network needs to be WEP and cannot be set for a higher encryption. If you are on WPA Nintendo has released an update recently which allows access to WPA networks, the key though is you need to get online first to upgrade your DSi so go to WEP first then upgrade to WPA.

I hope this helps!

Nintendo Wii, connection error while sending user agreement


Error Code: 51330 This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:
  1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
    2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
    3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
    6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
    7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
      • WPA - PSK (TKIP)
      • WPA - PSK (AES)
      • WPA2 - PSK (AES)

  2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:
    1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
    2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
    3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.


  3. Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.
    1. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page.
    2. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
    3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
    4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."


  4. Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings:
    1. On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run."
    2. Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window.
    3. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.


  5. Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

Wireless connection to router issue


Let me clarify to make sure I understand the problem: You set up your wireless router with a WPA 20 digit wireless key. You have a laptop which cannot connect with the 20 digit key specified. If I have misunderstood your issue, please let me know.

The first step always in this situation is to check and re-check your wireless key and make sure that you are entering it correctly. I will assume that you've already done this.

From there, you have 3 options to rectify the issue:
1) Set up the wireless router with a WEP wireless key.
2) Download a firmware update for your wireless adapter in your notebook to allow it to use WPA encryption.
3) Purchase a PCMCIA wireless card for your notebook that works with WPA encryption.

Please let me know if I can help any further.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Security connectivity issues


is the PC connection you're able to maintain once upgraded to WPA a PC that is physically connected to the router? if so, that would make sense because WPA (and WEP for that matter) are only wireless security protocols and have no protections for hard-wired connections.

In order to convert your system to WPA security, you must first make sure all of your hardware is WPA compatible (that isWPA Drivers are available for it).

For your PC wireless connection, if you're running Windows XP you can go to the microsoft website and download the WPA client. It is available in the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 815485. install the update and reboot. you will then be able to enable WPA security on your client.

Then you'll possibly need to update the drivers for your hardware for WPA support (router, wireless NIC, etc) if they did not already come enabled.

next you get to configure the router for WPA. you'll want to make sure you're set to WPA with preshared keys (no authentication server required), use TKIP as the algorhythm, and leave group key renewal at it's default value. and of course Select a key that is not likely to be guessed. write the key down as you'll need to configure your NIC using it.

to configure your NIC, once you're in the configuration menu select WPA-PSK for your authentication, TKIP for the encryption mode, in data encryption set it to TKIP, and in the network key put the key you selected earlier.

At this point you should be able to access your wireless router (or other access point). These instructions were kind of generic since i do not have the specific router you're using available to me, but the settings i discussed should be pretty universal when it comes to WPA security.
