Is your router from linksys also? How many wireless computers do you have? Note that if you encrypt your router, you need to make sure that each wireless computer gets the exact encryption keys you will use on the router. Usually the linksys router page can be accessed via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is "admin". Go to Wireless >> Wireless Security. Select WEP-128 key. Enter in a passphrase and hit generate. Copy key #1 on a piece of paper (make sure it's 26 characters) and click apply. Next, go to each wireless computer and use encryption key#1 when you connect to the linksys router.

-> Routers fine ->Still could detect other Wifi spots with a strong signal ->other newer laptop versions could connect -> I have connected with the wifi before provided with the correct...


WOW ! NO OS STATE AT ALL, is this the virus magnet XP?or Vista.
Circa 2005 , 12 long years old.... no spring chicken this... not at all.
most are in the land fill or sent to 3rd world as punishment...LOL.
best place to send is N.Korea this PC.

V5000 , ok that is first what is it.
WIFI yes, the pain of wifi, I use it as backup only, and only on CELL phones at home. we run gigalan at home and huge media server,
runs rock solid.
but wifi is a complex topic,not something that leads its self to text box, at all.
Router fine means other PC and cells all connect and work.
so its a PC issues. only only THIS PC.
but WAIT , (that comment on newer)
my guess is the router is wisely set to WPA1 /2 encrpytion (ONLY)
and then you bop in with a old Laptop hat is only WEP only or set to that only.
wep is not secure, so we dont use that TODAY. ever.


my wild guess, 2005 with XP right,?
the 3 years now dead OS, that HP nor MS support. at all
and known virus magnet, and over 700 exploits, (many not fixed)
facts, that.
for my next trick I will attempt to find what cards for wlan is there.
you never said, so will assume it's HP part, day one part.
not modified, as all can be.. see photo below for 1 matchup.

as you saw that XP wireless agent cant see your routers
broad cast, so that means , my guess is the your settings are wrong. or wrong driver loaded. (or bad card below)

if the router is set to WPA only and your agent (client app) is set to WEP
it can't see the WPA router. and for sure never connect .

why not look in your router first, see how its setup ?t.
mine is set to wpa+ (1 or 2)
but I could set it to accept WEP+WPA/1/2/ but id never do that.
ever,
i run wpa only. for security max.
so set your client to what you have your router set to.
it is that simple if drivers good. and XP not infected as ALL ARE.


this is what came new on it. (varies by exact model pc no t stated)
it does wep. and wpa
BCM94311mcgp , knowing what is there , IS EVERYTHING.
bcm94311-wdyuj211224z2sqpp0an4hgj-5-0.jpg
MY GUESS , WRONG XP DRIVER LOADED OR CORRuPUTED.

My wifi does not show up on my other laptop but my neighbors' networks show up and my wifi shows up on my iphone/ipod, any suggestion? i've tried plugging straight to the network>didn't work. one day it...


Hi Janet
I think you'll need someone to come round to have a look.
The basic problem doesn't make sense - if your ipod can see it then it's transmitting OK.
If your laptop can see your neighbour's wifi then your laptop is receiving. Therefor it should see your wifi.
These sorts of problems are very difficult to resolve from a distance.
The fact that you can't connect with a cable would suggest that the problem is with the laptop - but then again!!!!

My kids got a new emachine. My laptop is


Hi,
The wireless network may be encrpyted with a wep password. So you will need to check this in the network when you see the detected network click connect. you will be promted for a wep password.

Second thing you will need to check if you must specify and ip address. a subnet and a gateway address or leave it dynamic that is it will find an Ip address and everything automatically by itself.

My wireless router seems to work intermittenly within my house over the last year or so.


Possibly you are having interference from other wireless devices or networks in your neighborhood. I would change the frequency and channel of the wireless router and encrpyt your network. Someone could be "stealing" your bandwith. I hope this helps.

I need security key/passphrase


Log into the management council on the router. From there, you can find or replace your passphrase.

open your web browser; and type in this address, be sure to use the dots: 192.168.0.1

You will be guided to a login screen. the username is ADMIN (not case sensitive).

The password is blank...that is, do not type anything in the password box. Hit enter.

Good luck

I can not find the PIN number for the router. It


Hi there... I dont get wat you mean by PIN... Is it WEP key your refering too? Well as you said it is supposedly the 10 digits on the modem.. If your unable to connect, then the possibilities are that the modems default wep key has been changed. To reset this key you will have to access the gateway thru

192.168.1.254 or gateway.2wire.net - click on wireless settings and from there scroll down and you will be able to see the buttons where it is marked as use default encryption key or use custom key passphrase. Click on use default encrpytion key , scroll down and click save settings. Now note at this point of time when you click save , whichever wireless devices which were or could connect to the modem when it was in " use custom key passphrase" cant be connected anymore. All the devices must be reconfigured to the default wep key which can be found on your modem which is a 10 digit n numbers.

2nd choice.
You access the modems gateway page to reset the whole modem to factory default
Go to the http://gateway.2wire.net/mdc and you will be prompted for password. By default its 2wire. Once you have accesses in it, scroll down till you see Troubleshooting - then you can see resets. click on it and at the bottom you will see a radio button RESET - Resets your 2wire gateway to factory default. CLick on the reset, your modems power light will change to orange led after 3 secs from your click. and the orange led will be there for ard 10-15 secs. And your modem will boot back. And now its factory default. You need to do the necessary configurations depending on your ISP.

3rd choice

Reset button behind modem
Click the red reset button behind the modem and hold for 15 secs, the modem will be restored to factory default.


Pls note : I will not hold responsibility if any mishaps happens during this operation. All the above is done on YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY. Thank you.

Connecting internet on psp


What you will need.

1. network password to your wireless.
2. if you are doing it manually then you will need the ip address of the router.

Lets stick to the first one for now.

- there is a switch to turn on your wLan on the psp. Turn this on then navigate to internet on your psp, search for your wireless router and enter the appropriate encrpytion u are using eg. wep, wpa etc then enter the network key.

wait a few secs while it connects and you are online.

good luck
