Hi,

What is the operating system of your laptop? Is it running Windows Vista or XP? Can you check if you're getting an IP address wirelessly?

Go to start>run>type cmd and then hit enter.

On the black screen type, ipconfig/all and see if you're getting an IP address similar to the IP address of the other working computers. If not, then that is the problem, that means that the wireless security that was entered on your new laptop is incorrect. To make sure that you entering the correct key, save your security key on a notepad and then copy and paste it on your wireless adapter settings.

I have just bought anew laptop cant get onto internet it wants me to type in security key i dont know what this is can you help me please?


  • If your are trying to connect via wireless from your laptop to the Netgear router, most likely it's requiring you to input the wireless security key(usually it's WEP or WPA encryption).

  • Access the router's setup page by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the address field of your browser(IE or Chrome). On the login use the default username and password(admin, password).

  • After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the Wireless Key. If the wireless security is set to WEP, use the available Key code but If it's WPA, what you need is the passphrase.

Type the Key or Passphrase on your wireless laptop and it should connect to the router.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

How do I figure out the WEP code on my DSI?How do I accept the terms and regulations for the DSI shop without going on the internet?


You need to provide your DSI with the WEP code for your network or the network to which you are trying to connect. You can often find the WEP code listed on your router- it is a 10 character code; else you may have to contact the owner of the network. You won't be able to accept the terms and agreement until you'v connected.

Where do i find the wep key if every ip adress i type wont work?????????????????????????????????????????????? HELP!!!!!!!!!


Logon to the computer with the wireless router connected to the modem. Use the software that came with your router to select the Wireless setup. You will see the Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key that you must use on all computers using the wireless connection. If the software is not installed you could access the firmware from Internet Explorer. If you do not know the router address you can find it by the next steps.
1. Select Run from the Start menu.
2. Type CMD and press Enter.
3. Type IPCONFIG /ALL and press Enter.
4. Note the Default Gateway on a piece of paper.
Open Internet Explorer and type the Default Gateway in the Internet Explorer address bar (example: 192.168.0.1). You may have to type a username and password to access the firmware settings. You should find the password listed in your manual, possibly on the bottom or back of the router. Once you are in the router firmware find the wireless settings so you can see your WEP key and note that value on a piece of paper. Exit internet explorer to save your settings and again try to scan for wireless networks on other computers. Select your router and type in the WEP key and you should be wired.

Cant get my printer s305 to connect to wireless,wont accept wep key ,, any way round it, please help


Good day! There are things you need to check to successfully connect the printer for wireless connection.
1. Make sure the wifi light on the printer is solid orange before continuing. If not, go to Setup > Network Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Defaults. Wifi light should turn off, then wait for it to turn solid orange.
2. WEP key can be ASCII or HEX(hexadecimal) depending on what was assigned to it. You may be using an incorrect WEP key. Just to make sure, access your router setup page and double-check the WEP key assigned to it. If you don't know how to access the router setup page, you can always ask assistance from either your internet service company or the router's manufacturer.
Once you get the correct WEP key and wifi light solid orange on the printer, try connecting the printer again for wireless connection. Good luck!

Can't connect wirelessly as it won't accept my password.



Hello paulclarke88;

What your router is asking for is a secure wep login. You can provide this number by loging into your router directly, and go to the securty section of the menu, and generate a new wep key. It will then generate a key, that you should write it down, because this new key is what will give you access with your Acer. Typically the Dlink login is ip address 192.168.0.1 Usernames admin Password
is left blank.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark
