If your wireless router is a linksys, try resetting it. There is a reset button on the rear of the router. Look next to where the ac power cord meets the router, there should be a small, black circle the size of a pen-tip. Press this button when router is turned on. This will reset the router to factory default settings and your router will be in "open" mode meaning anyone can use your router without a password/key. If your laptop get's online after this, you should change the settings to set-up a webkey or password.

How to change security setting to secure


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wirelesssettings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also thewireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with theserouter's wireless settings. These settings prevents unauthorized access to your wireless network and Internet. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicatewith your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on thislink and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

2.4GHz Wireless Lan And 5 GHz Wireless LAN


this is usually caused by your router and your wireless network card are not compatible... you need to purchase as well cisco wireless network card adn tehn when you press your wireless security on the router, it will automatically apply all security protocol to the connection.

if you do not want to purchase new card, you always can setup these devices manually,

connect to the router via rj45 cable, establish what protocol, security and transmission method/frequency you will be using, write that down, disconnect the cable, enter your wireless network card settings and apply same settings to your network card, this should solve the problem.

as you did not stated what operating system you are using and what card is in your computer, this is unfortunately best advice which can be given.

how to set up your router, you have downloadable pdf file on linksys site.

Not wep compatable


what is not compatible to the WEP. is it computer or the router ?
All the routers are compatible with WEP.
If you want to change the security type, you can change it to WPA. For this you will need to access the router set up page. Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router . open the set up page of the router and change the security mode. also change the network name.
Once you change these settings , you will need to connect to the new wireless network on all your computers and other wireless devices in the network.

Win xp desktop connected to wrt54gs router wants laptop running win 7 to connect wirelessly


We need to know the wireless settings on your router before configuring the laptop.

To check the wireless settings, access the setup page of the router by using the desktop's internet browser. In the address bar, type 192.168.1.1.

Default login is: leave the username blank, then the password is admin.

Once you are in the setup page, go to the Wireless tab.

Take note of the wireless network name (SSID).

Then go to the Wireless Security tab. Take note of the wireless security settings and the network key (if wireless security is enabled).

On your laptop, in the lower right corner of your screen you will see an icon that looks like this moz-screenshot-1.jpgc147bd5.png.

Click the icon and you will see a list of available networks.

Select the SSID of your router then click connect.

If the wireless security is enabled, it will ask for the security key. Type the wireless network key, then click ok.

It will then connect wirelessly.

Good luck!

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!
