Well, there can be many factors. I'm sure that you have tried power cycling all devices. Major culprits of disconnections for WAP is bluetooth devices or being too near refrigerator. This are the source of magnetic interference. Try using the Compaq very close to WAP (wireless access point) to see if you can reproduce the problem.

I have a new Linksys router WRT54gs and a new Dell laptop.

With security disabled the wireless works fine. But will not connect to the

Any help would be apreciated

Internet connection not working right compaq evo n1020v


Hello
First you will need to have the install disc for your card.Install driversoftware from cd or dvd, following directions.Once installed you should see a new hardware device has been found notification.

Next you will need to configure your card with the routers wep key or wireless security key.I am assuming wireless is activated on your router.Should see a light on the router lit under wireless,or a symbol.
1 start pc then start internet explorer.
2 Type in the top bar of ie 198.162.1.1 or 198.162.1.0 hit enter.
3 This should bring you to the routers home page.usaername=admin password=password or admin
4 Find your wireless tab or settings page looking for security area.
5 Find your wep or wireless security code,write this down.
6 Log off of router.
7 Go into network cards configuration program and put this wep code into the area provided.
8 Software may have found it automaticly, it just needs this code.

If you cant connect to router at step one use a ethernet cable from your pc to the router to log on.

Hope this helps.

Probably your network is secured so you will need to configure connection (provide WEP or WPA passkey to connect).
Double click on wireless network name you wish to connect and put encryption key

I have an acer laptop that I just bought and it's asking me for the wep key from the router. I have a main computer but I can't recall the key. how can I find it?


The WEP key is the encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings and the wireless card in the laptop is configured with this encryption setting to allow the laptop to communicate with the router.
WEP is an old encryption, better to use WPA encryption.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Wireless doesn't work


Hi Friend,
Kindly check the below given instructions,

To access the WIRELESS (WLAN) settings window, click on the Wireless Setup button in the SETUP directory.

WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS

1.Click on the Enable Wireless box to allow the router to operate in the
wireless environment.

2.The SSID identifies members of the Service Set. Accept the default
name or change it to something else. If the default SSID is changed, all
other devices on the wireless network must also use the same SSID.

3.Enable Auto Channel Scan so that the router can select the best
possible channel for your wireless network to operate on.

4.The Wireless Channel can let you select the channel of your access
point. Channel availability is different for different countries due to their
regulation.

5.Select 802.11 Mode to operate in b/g/n mode. Or select specified mode
to use.

6.Channel Width, Maximum rate for 20 MHz is 130 Mbps. Maximum rate
for 40 MHz is 270 Mbps.

7.Transmission Rate, suggest keeping the Best (automatic) selection.

8.Click on the Hide Wireless Network box to allow the router to stop broadcasting its SSID.

WIRELESS SECURITY WIZARD


1.Click on the Security My Wireless Network button to enter the
2.SECURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK window.

SECURE MY WIRELESS NETWORK
1.Input the SSID.
2.Select the Wireless Channel.
3.Select the Encryption type. WPA-PSK is more secure than WEP 64 bit.
4.Click on the Apply Settings button to apply the settings

WIRELESS SECURITY MODE - WEP

1.WEP (Wireless Encryption Protocol) encryption can be enabled for
security and privacy. WEP encrypts the data portion of each frame
transmitted from the wireless adapter using one of the predefined keys.

2.The router offers 64 or 128 bit encryption with four keys available.
Select WEP Key Length from the drop-down menu. (128 bit is stronger
than 64 bit)

3.Specify the encryption key from the Current Network Key drop-down
menu.

4.Enter the key into the WEP Key field 1~4. (Key length is outlined at the
bottom of the window.)

5.Select Authentication type from the drop-down menu. (Shared is
better than Open)

6.Click on the Apply Settings button to apply settings.

Check and revert back

Regards,
Ayyasam

HP laptop not recognizing Linksys Wireless B Security Key..


The WEP encryption is consist of 10 characters for 64 bit hex, 128 bit hex is 24 characters and WPA is 8 to 63 characters. So it seems that you have a vista computer? The compatible encryption for vista is WPA, sometime using WEP it is not working properly. So I might advise you to access the configuration of your router (192.168.1.1) and change the wireless settings of your router to WPA-Personal.

No network


The Wireless Security of the router doesn't match your laptop's wireless settings. Make sure you configure the wireless security password correctly on the laptop. If you don't know your wireless password, try these steps:

-Connect your laptop hard wired to the router.
-Open Internet Explorer and on the Address Bard type http://192.168.1.1 press enter.
-It will prompt you for username and password. By default, there's no username and on the password type admin and hit OK. If admin didn't work, type your own password for the router.
-When you get to the Setup page, click on Wireless Tab, then click the sub-tab Wireless Security.
-Look for Security Mode. If Security Mode is WPA-Personal, the Passphrase is the wireless security key that you need to enter on the laptop's wireless settings. If the Security Mode is WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless security key. Connect to the wireless network and type it in. That should solve your wireless connection problem.

Wirless Network keeps failing


Hi,

It is possible that you need to further fine tune your WEP configuration. To verify if it's the security lock, try running the laptop and the router without the WEP security (disabled) and determine if you still get the "Limited connection or no connectivity".

If yes, you have just eliminated that area and could consider other possibilities, otherwise you then have to concentrate on the WEP security.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back on any developments (or lack thereof) or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
