Question about Gateway Wireless-B PC (wbm-120)
I have a new gateway pc
it can see my wireless router but can not make a connection
it will not accept the encryption key when I type it in
..so i can not establish a connection to the internet
Try using 'Network Magic' free download from their site. I find that this product makes connecting easy. You do not need to purchase the PRO version, the free will work fine for connecting.
If that does not work, log into your router using a wired pc and check if MAC addressing is enabled, if it is you will need to update the table with your new laptop's MAC.
If not, disable security and test to see if you can connect, if you still can not then you may have a issue with the pc. If you can, then check to ensure that the encryption you are using is supported by the PC's wireless card.
Turn reset the password on the router, re-enable security and try again.
