If you need to recover a used wifi key, its not possible from within windows as they are all encrypted when added, you need to search for a wifi key recovery software, there are some that recover and back up keys used on the machine, so i would start there :)

for example

If your network is being created by an Apple AirPort base station, use AirPort Utility to put the base station into "manual setup" mode, then pull down the "Base Station" menu and select "Equivalent Network Password". Try the value shown there.

I bought the new sylvania 7" laptop. I am having problems.. We have connected to our wireless router however, we not get on the internet...


from another computer, go to the routers configuration screen and make sure the status shows that it is connected to the internet. Also the routers internal LanIP address must be 192.168.1.1 for the netbook to work.

Attempting to connect new Acer netbook to existing Mac network


Had the same problem. What i did was in the Airport Configuration program goto "Airport" then to "Wireless" and then to "Wirelesee options" In this menu deselect "Use wide channels". Also i decreased the power of the 5.0 Ghz transmission, because i don't use it yet. But i think the "Wide channels" is the reason of the problem. It is a bit weird thoug, on my Airports Guest acount with no password and incryption, the Acer One loged on perfectly, but on my private network with WPA2 it did not. Aparantly the Guest network does not use "Wide Channels" Hope this helps, but take care, maybe the menu's are called differendly because i had to translate them from Dutch. Good luck.

Have a new imac with leopard and it has a built in airport, how do i get the dlink on my pc to recognise it



To join an AirPort network:
1.
Choose Apple > System Preferences, and then click Network.
2.
Click AirPort in the network connection services list and choose a wireless network from the Network Name pop-up menu. Enter the password for the network if necessary.
If the network you expected is not in the list, it may be a “closed” network and not be available in the list. Try clicking Other, and then enter the network name and password if necessary.
If AirPort isn’t in the list, click Add (+) at the bottom of the list, choose AirPort from the Interface pop-up menu, give the AirPort service a name, and then click Create.
