We can secure wi fi with 2 method
(1) WEP encryption password
(2)MAC addreses filtering.

If your router is configured as WEP or WAP when you find your broadcast id you need password for connect your wi fi netwrok.

And if in your router MAC security enabled then only those user access your wi fi router ent wrok whose MAC addreses are list in allow list in router.

You can access your belkin router with

http://192.168.2.1

user name as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"

then check wi fi settings security in advanced.

Thanks for using fixya.

Well first off you should plug a cat 5 cable into the router, login into the router and see what the ssid is and change it to your own so you know which one you are logging into, then check the security settings if it says none then you are not secured

Cant connect to wirless network


if you can connect to your wirless AP from other devices such as mobile or other laptop this means that you have to check the following:
1- delete then re-create your wireless profile .
2- make sure that your wireless adapter is cofigured to obtain automatic ip address not static.
but if you are not able to connect with other devices , then make sure that you have the correct security password (if any) or check the configuration of your Access Point.

How do i switch my pc to wirless


There's a switch in the front of your laptop. The light should be blue when it's on. Go the the wireless properties and select your home network and connect to it. You will need to know the security code in most cases.

Hello, I have an acer aspire 5338 laptop and have started to have problems connecting to the internet. I am connecting through a wirless access point. My laptop connects to the router fine but seems to...


I would reinstall any updated driver for the wirless adpator now if that does not help you might try lowering the security at your acess point to a 64 bit wep key to speed up connection identification.

Also you might want to hard reset your router as well.

let me know if you have further comment, please do leave some postive feedback and ratings for your free answer today!

Nb200 does not connect to wireless router ( dlink / virgin ) but will connect to neighbours unsecured wirless connection


you need to change your wirless settings.
I gues you have a high level security assigned to your router like WPA-PSK with a passphrase or WEP with 128 bit encryption.

Solution is :

Login to your router page and change the wireless security to WEP 64 bit and assign 10 digit number as a password in key 1. change your wireless name and click apply. and then try to connect to your own chnaged network.

Need to add a wirless code to laptop so it will geta wirless signal


For wireless connection you need a wireless adaptor in your laptop. Most of the laptop comes with wireless adaptor. If you have one then go to control panel--> network connection--> right click on wireless connection and view available networks in your area.

Please note : If you see a lock sign in front of a network it means that network is secured and you cant access it without password.

Please mail me if you need any other help or if something is not clear in my answer
