Most likely, you have the network key wrong. Double check it and make sure you don't have CAPS lock on when typing it.

One other possibility is that the modes of the router and the notebook are incompatible, i.e. router is set for 802.11n only and notebook can only do 802.11b/g. Check the settings for this on both and make sure they are compatible. If you need more info, let me know the makes and models along with OS for the laptop.

I have set up a password for my belkin wireless router and now when i connect it says limited access and the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network


Hi Andrew,

This should be an easy one to fix. First, unplug power from the modem and the router for 30 seconds. Power on the modem first and wait one minute. Now power on the router and wait one more minute. This will remedy the limited access issue.

Now we'll fix the 'settings don't match' issue. Here's what's probably happening:

You had connected to your wireless network with no password previously and windows saved a connection to this network. Now, you are trying to connect with security enabled and windows is saying "hey, I know this network, but my saved connection doesn't have any security"

So.....you need to delete the existing connection to your wireless network and then re-connect to it.

In windows 7, go to control panel and click on the network and sharing centre. now click on manage wireless networks and delete the connection to your home wireles network.

Now reconnect to your wireless network and you will be asked for the password. Enter it and everything should be good.

Please let me know if this helps. I f not, get back to me and I can help some more.

Regards,

Joe

Try checking if the laptop's wireless button is switched to on. It helps a lot! On my laptop, you have to switch a button to turn the wireless on. If i don't it's impossible to get a connect.

hope this helps :)

Can not connect to internet on wireless acer laptop 5315. it says the settings saved on this computer for network do not match the requirements for the network


Your security key has perhaps changed.

You will need to check this key entered into your laptop against what is entered into the router.
