New Dell 1545 will not connect using WPA-PSK security

It connects fine with no security or WEP but will not connect if WPA is enabled on router. Adapter is a Broadcom 1397 and the driver is the latest version.

    Thanks arjuun but I don't have any problem connecting to the network. The problem only occurs when WPA is selected. From the info available it seems that this is a not uncommon problem with Dells.

We have a DLink DI614 router and need to know how to password protect the wireless network


You should download and read manual pages covering Using the Configuration Menu that begins on page 10. Securing your wireless is detailed starting on page 12 for WEP, page 13 for WPA (only if you have a Radius Server - most likely not) and page 14 for WPA-PSK.

Nearly all devices support the older WEP encryption method. The downside is that it is easily defeated with software in under 10 minutes. A much better, more robust method is WPA-PSK. It can not be defeated (yet). If you choose WPA-PSK, any device that you connect wirelessly to this router MUST support WPA-PSK as well, otherwise it will NOT be able to connect.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply, thanks.

I entered a WEP encryption key onto my Dell TrueMobile 2300 router, but when I try to connect to it wirelessly (and put in the correct key), I don't get any connection to the internet. It works fine when...


Dear Friend,
You must be trying the WEP -OPEN.
try WPA-PSK and put in your customized password.
Before making any changes in the system remove all the cables from the router and reset the router once and try to configure the network with WPA- PSK.
It should work.
If negative plz contact your ISP

Thank You

I dunno ow to secure my connection with my edimax router


You can read more about WEP and WPA in the following links:
This article explains how to configure WEP/WPA-PSK/Access list on NETGEAR Wireless router (also applicable to access points).
Note:
  • You can configure WEP or WPA. But you cannot enable both at the same time.
  • You can configure Access list and also enable WEP or WPA for additional security.
  • After you enable wireless security features on the router (or access point), you must configure your wireless clients (wireless computers) with matching settings. Your wireless clients will not be able to connect unless you configure matching settings.
  • Its recommended you enable these wireless security settings from a computer wired to the router (or access point).
Configuring WEP:
  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter.
    The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
  3. Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu. n101675_image001.jpg
  4. Under Security Options, Select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
  5. Select Authentication type as Automatic and Encryption Strength as 64-bit (or 128-bit) - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  6. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength) and Apply the settings. Please note down these values - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.

Cannot connect console to internet to see weatherforecast & news


Error Code: 52030 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. If your connection was working previously, try power cycling 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. (Some routers may lose their connection to the Wii console while it is in Standby or turned off for a period of time. Check with your router manufacturer's website for the latest firmware, as there may be an update that will help prevent this issue from occurring in the future.)


  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.

Will not automatically connect to network. Must reconnect manually each time.


Did you put in The 26 digit code from your router? I know you need to have all computers on same workgroup , and the 26 digit code in all of them on your network, I think if you make sure, of those things mentioned above it may continue to work for you, I sure hope that gets you by your problem Thanks
