My router used to work just fine; until I messed with the network settings on my laptop (the WEP, WLAN, Open Acess, Shared Access, Firewall). I was trying to make sure that my network was secure. It was to start with; I only knew enough to be dangerous, and now my laptop has no wireless. My desktop works just fine.

How to find security key
Your wireless network must be secured You will need to check the wireless settings of the router. Is there any computer online using the router. check the IP address on that computer. If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings. Click Here for more information about the routers and network
The Linksys configuration URL is http://192.168.1.1 and if you cannot Login or remember the password then you can reset the router back to the factory defaults by -
Power up the Linksys and pressing and holding the pinhole reset button at the back of the Linksys for 30 secs. The router will restart.
Username Login = admin
Password = admin
You can now change the admin password and configure the wireless settings ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption etc.
Don't forget to configure the wireless card in your computer with the router's wireless dettings so the computer can connect to the Linksys.
Very vague problem description. Check the WGR614 settings, you may have activated the MAC address filter for wireless that allows only devices with known addresses to connect to the router. Next is DHCP settings, is your router set up to provide IP addresses to devices (recommended) or is it set to static IPs? Your laptop must match this in its own network settings. What about WLAN security? Is your laptop able to match the security settings of the router? Some older wireless devices do not support advanced encryption (TKIP, AES, ...) or any protocols beyond WEP. Also very common: is the WLAN radio activated on your laptop? Sometimes success is just a gentle push away on an innocent looking switch at the laptop's edge.
There are wireless networking capabilities of the gateway that will prevent or allow specific MAC Addresses from connecting to the network. Go into the wireless settings and adjust the settings to accept the MAC address from your work computer. To find the MAC address from your computers network adapter go into a command prompt by typing cmd in the run box and typing "IPconfig /all" in the window. The MAC address is there it may be called Physical Address. It is always a 16 set of number and letter combinations divided by ":" between every 2 sets of number / letters. On your home desktop this same window will help you diagnose the problem. Your son's computer will help you with this, do this on his as well and compare the IP address with your home computer the address could be something like "192.168.1.?" the last number is going to be unique if the first three numbers match. If the IP address on your home computer doesn't match the first three octets "192.168.1" it will not get out through the gateway. If they don't match you can force it to be on the same network by setting up a static IP address by opening up the Control Panel / Networking icon and finding the icon for the network adapter that you are using and opening it up and clicking on "Properties" and clicking on IPv4 and clicking properties and clicking on Specify IP address and typing the first three octets of your son's computer and adding a fourth number that isn't "0" or "255". You can use any number between those two numbers except those numbers, and isn't the same as your son's IP Address or the Default Gateway which is the Linksys. The "Subnet Mask" will auto install but will be "255.255.255.0". The default gateway and DNS server will be the IP address of the Linksys which most likely will be "192.168.1.1". Click "Ok" on all the open dialog boxes and the computer should be able to get on the internet.
open your Internet browser, in the address line, inset 192.168.0.1, then: ->
set the administrator password, note that you have to set the same password
some security as well, other vice your neighbor will use your network, - and
that you don’t want, as you don’t know what and where he go on the internet.
27 in your manual, you find the way to set the wireless settings.
37 in your manual, you find a way to set MAC address settings. Thise settings
allow only those MAC addresses as you put in the table. You find
your own MAC address like this: ->Start->run->write
cmd and hit enter; a black DOS window open, write ipconfig /all (note the space
before /all). Here you find your MAC address – note that there is two cards in
your laptop, and the card you want the MAC address for is the wireless card.
regards Teis plz let me know if you need furter help.
You need to use a working computer with the router then access the router setup page that way you can get the wireless security key, then follow this step:
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
When you're already on the Linksys router setup page, click on Wireless tab and look for a sub tab that says Wireless security and there you can find the security key that you're looking for..
Hope that helps..Don't forget to rate the solution FIXYA thank you...

Click OK Home > Wizard The Home>Wizard screen will appear. Please refer to the Quick Installation Guide for more information regarding the Setup Wizard. . These buttons appear on most of the configuration screens in this section. Please click on the appropriate button at the bottom of each screen after you have made a configuration change. . . .13 Using the Configuration Menu (continued) Home > Wireless Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the name designated for a specific wireless local area network (WLAN). The SSID’s factory default setting is default. The SSID can be easily changed to connect to an existing wireless network or to establish a new wireless network. SSID- Channel- 6 is the default channel. All devices on the network must share the same channel. (Note: The wireless adapters will automatically scan and match the wireless setting.) WEP- Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a wireless security protocol for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN). WEP provides security by encrypting the data that is sent over the WLAN. Select Enabled or Disabled. Disabled is the default setting. (Note: If you enable encryption on the DI-624 make sure to also enable encryption on all the wireless clients or wireless connection will not be established.) WEP Encryption- Select the level of encryption desired: 64-bit, or 128-bit. Key Type- Select HEX or ASCII. Keys 1-4- Input up to 4 WEP keys; select the one you wish to use.14 Using the Configuration Menu (continued) Home > WAN > Dynamic IP Address DI-754 Dynamic IP Address- Choose Dynamic IP Address to obtain IP Address information automatically from your ISP. Select this option if your ISP does not give you any IP numbers to use. This option is commonly used for Cable modem services. Host Name- The Host Name is optional but may be required by some ISPs. The default host name is the device name of the Router and may be changed. MAC Address- The default MAC Address is set to the WAN’s physical interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP. Clone MAC Address- The default MAC address is set to the WAN’s physical interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. You can use the "Clone MAC Address" button to copy the MAC address of the Ethernet Card installed by your ISP and replace the WAN MAC address with the MAC address of the router. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP. Enter a DNS Address if you do not wish to use the one provided by your ISP. Primary/ Secondary DNS Address- MTU- Enter an MTU value only if required by your ISP. Otherwise, leave it at the default setting.15 Home > WAN > Static IP Address Static IP Address- Choose Static IP Address if all WAN IP information is provided to you by your ISP. You will need to enter in the IP address, subnet mask, gateway address, and DNS address(es) provided to you by your ISP. Each IP address entered in the fields must be in the appropriate IP form, which are four octets separated by a dot (x.x.x.x). The Router will not accept the IP address if it is not in this format. IP Address- Input the public IP Address provided by your ISP. Subnet Mask- Input your Subnet mask. (All devices in the network must have the same subnet mask.) ISP Gateway Address- Input the public IP address of the ISP to which you are connecting. Primary DNS Address- Input the primary DNS (Domain Name Server) IP address provided by your ISP. Secondary DNS Address- This is optional. Enter an MTU value only if required by your ISP. Otherwise, leave it at the default setting.
After fighting with this for the last couple of hours I have my ipod touch working with the netgear DG834G(v3) router. The fix is a bit odd and I am not entirely sure why it works but I thought I would share and hopefully it might help you out …
First I think that the WEP encryption simply does not work between these two devices and causes some very strange behaviour – the WEP 'authentication type' setting I had on the 'wireless settings' page was set to 'shared key' – I flicked this to 'automatic' & strength to ‘128 bit’ - hit apply and finally I found I was able to connect without an error message (after inputting the correct WEP key). Unfortunately the DHCP did not work correctly after this and I kept receiving IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x (an internal default) rather than my networks expected 192.168.0.x range.The Ipod touch couldn’t find any DNS servers or connect to the internet. To get round this I set the router ‘security options’ to use WPA instead (WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)) instead of WEP. Set the new WPA password at the bottom of the wireless settings page - again hit apply - and configured the ipod to use the new password and WPA PSK instead of WEP.This worked fine – although it does mean I have to change the settings on all my other wireless devices around the house! The weird thing is that although the router isn’t using WEP encryption changing the 'authentication type' setting back to ‘shared key’ in the WEP menu breaks the WPA connection again – very odd? I blame netgear and their obviously crazy wep code :)
go to control panel and network connections, right click on the lan connection but not the wireless one and select dissable as the router may still be assigning the wired adapter an ip address.
make sure in the wireless cards properties that obtain an ip address automatically on the TCP/IP line properties is selected.
Firstly dissable wep to get the connection and then when up and running then apply wep or wpa again but make sure that the security code is set correctly at either 'Open' or 'shared' in the router.
as long as you are not using your own router to connect to your neighbours, as this wont work only one router on the network can connect to the net
Im assuming your pc is trying to connect to the neighbours router, so you need to reset the router if you cant access it, it should have no password as default and the ip address of the router should be 192.168.2.1.
get into your network cards properties and ensure obtain an ip address automatically on the TCP/IP line is selected.
Go into the router settings and make sure enable DHCP is set to allocate ip addresses automatically and that the router transmits on mixed mode b and G, turn off any wep or wpa encryption until you have a connection.
Do not use windows connection repair as it will totaly mess up your pc's ip addresses and stop you from connecting to the routers ip address.
