Question about Belkin (F5D7050) 802.11a/g/b Wireless Adapter

1 Answer

IS MY COMPUTER SAFE??

Hi I just want to know if my computer is safe;

when I view my available Networks I have a list of all networks (ssid) detected and they are all locked apart from one.

The reason I am concerned is because sometimes when I view my connections, the network that is open, is on my connections list, with the connect automatically square ticked, and also at times I've been connected to it. I have now unchecked the automatic connections option in my options.
Do you think this will solve my problem? and do you think my computer was safe when I was connected to the open network? (my fire wall is on).
Thanks T

With your firewalls up you may have been pretty safe. I never say I'm so safe from anything on an open network. I would suggest being on a secure network with a password verification. This way no one else has access to your network unless they have the key. Using open networks you're allowing anyone into your privacy. Just think of it as you leaving your house front door open at night while your sleeping.
Thanks I hope I helped you out.

When I try to click on my name to get on the net my name isn't high lighted and I can't connect help


Do you mean to say that you expect to see: (1) your last and first names (or at least one of them) or (2) your WiFI network's name (actually that is called your network's SSID and it is the code your modem/router is broadcasting) ? If (1) is the case, it means that you don't know your network's SSID. If when you try to connect there is only one name in the list of detected networks, that is the SSID you can connect to. Highlight it and connect. If there are more names on the list (probably your neighbors' networks), do the following: turn off your modem/router and then try to connect again. Write down the names/SSIDs in the list of available networks. After that, turn your modem/router back on and try to connect again. The new name that shows up on the list now is the SSID of your network. Highlight it and connect.

Where is the SSID number


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you


  • Download a program that will scan your network for hidden SSIDs. Many free utilities are capable of doing this, including inSSIDer, NetStumbler and or Kismet (see Resources). Only inSSIDer will show the hidden SSID. NetStumbler and Kismet will find networks with hidden SSIDs and display most of their information, but list the SSID as "Unknown."

  • 2
    Run the program and click the "Scan Now" or "Scan" button. The program will scan your wireless network for all signals coming from other networks, both hidden and broadcasting their SSIDs.

  • 3
    View the list of networks that appears when the scan concludes. All networks within range of yours will appear on the list. Compare the list with the list of wireless networks that your computer routinely picks up to determine which are hidden and which were already broadcasting their SSIDs.

Where is the ssid# located on hp pavillion dv6000


LOL, OK SSID is associated with your wireless router. It identifies your wireless network that you connect to. When you click on View Available Wireless Networks from your computer, the networks that it shows are shown by their SSID.

My notebook cannot connect to the wireless router. its on my wifi but i cannot connect to the internet. it says dns server error


Hi Dear Being able to connect to a wireless network or wi-fi hotspot is fundamental for mobile work and play. The step by step directions in the wi-fi tutorial below will help you set up your laptop so you can connect to a network wirelessly for Internet access or to share files with other computers on the network. Examples are given for Windows XP, Vista/7, and Mac.
  1. Find the wireless network icon on your computer (on Windows, you'll find an icon that looks like 2 computers in your taskbar on the bottom right; Macs will have a wireless symbol in the top right).
  2. View available wi-fi networks by either right-clicking the icon and selecting "View Available Wireless Networks" (Windows XP) or left-clicking the icon and selecting to "Connect or disconnect..." (Windows Vista). On Mac OS X and Windows 7, all you have to do is click on the wi-fi icon to see the list of available networks.
  3. Choose the network to connect to by clicking the "Connect" button (or just selecting it on Win7/Mac).
  4. Enter the security key -- if the wireless network is encrypted (with WEP, WPA or WPA2), you'll be prompted to enter the network password or passphrase. This will be stored for you for next time, so you'll only have to enter it once.
  5. On Windows 7, select the type of network this is -- Windows 7 automatically sets up security for different network location types (Home, Work, or Public).
  6. Start browsing or sharing! You should now be connected to the wi-fi network; open your browser and visit a website to confirm.
Tips:
  1. Make sure you have a firewall and updated antivirus software especially if you're accessing a public wi-fi hotspot. Open or unsecured wireless networks are not safe at all.
  2. In Windows XP, make sure you have updated to SP3 so you have the latest WPA2 security drivers.
  3. Some wireless networks are set up to hide their SSID (or network name); if you don't find the wi-fi network in your list, ask someone at the establishment for the SSID information.
  4. If you are able to connect to the network but not the Internet, make sure your network adapter is set to automatically get its IP address from the router or try other wireless troubleshooting tips.
  5. If you can't find the wireless network icon, try going to your control panel (or system settings) and the network connections section then right-clicking on the Wireless Network Connection to "View Available Wireless Networks". If the wireless network you're looking for isn't in the list, you can manually add it by going to the wireless network connection properties as above and clicking on the selection to add a network. On Macs, click on the wireless icon, then "Join Another Network...". You'll have to enter the network name (SSID) and the security information (e.g., WPA password).
