This information is setup at the router (Access Point) and you will need to get the information from there.. Although there are ways to 'hack' this information, I will not tell you how to do this here, as we do not want to enable 'hackers'...

You need to hard wire the computer to the Access Point and enter the configuration of the device.. within it, you will find the SSID (name of the wifi network connection) and the type of encryption (WEP, WAP, etc.). From this page, you can discover the Passphrase or Encryped Password, which will allow you to access the WiFi connection.

Hi there, I wonder if you can help me, I am trying to get on to the internet on my Wii but it was a confirmed SSID as im using a wireless connection... Can you please tell me what this is and who I can do...


it is trying to confirm the ssid which is the name of your wireless network.
if your wireless network IE. is linksys
you will want to type linksys as the ssid.
if your wireless is open it should connect otherwise if wireless is encrypted you will need to select the encryption type wep/or wpa? select wpa if that is what you have and put in the passphase or security key to autheticate to your wireless network.

Whats a wpa key? I have tried connecting to my router on my wireless device and my wireless device ask's for a wpa key? is it the same as a lan key?


WPA <<===>> WIRELESS PROTECTED ACCESS

You need to use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to the router, and then access the web-server inside the router, and then run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard". When you do, you will set:

* the SSID ("network name") -- pick anything you prefer
* the encryption-level (hint: use 'WPA')
* the password for the network -- pick anything you can remember

Then, from a wireless device, do a "View Available Wireless Networks".
Select the SSID, and enter the password, to make a connection.

I need a security key code or a passphase


this is generated when you setup wireless networking and is required when you connect you computer wirelessly. connect you computer with a network cable first. log on to router and set up wireless networking. when you generate the keycodes, make a note of them, then you can enter it when you connect wirelessly.

Passphrase my isp does not have this information either


I understand that you are trying to connect the wireless adapter in your notebook computer to the wireless network being offered by your own router.

Login to your router's web-server, and query the pass-phrase it is using, or reset the pass-phrase.

Router asks for some kind of pin...


I have never heard of such. Sound like your computer is tring to get you to enter the WEP key or Passphase to access the router.
If you don't have a WEP key or Passphase setup on the router then you should just be able to click "ok" or "enter" (with the field blank) and bypass this screen.

Also check your network properties on the computer that is giving you trouble. Open your network connection, right click your wireless connection and click on "properties". Check the tabs and make sure you don't have WEP or secure network highlighted in one of the check boxes.

Ps3


Are you going to connect your PS3 wired to your router or wireless?
1. check first if ps3 is working behind rca modem.
2. then connect a pc directly to your linksys router
3. open configuration page of linksys by typing your gateway on your browser. (usually it is by default 192.168.1.1)
4. go to applications and gaming tab
5. you'll find there port forwarding..key in your number there
> i guess your numbers are like 88 and 3764 (something like that)
6. if your trying to connect your playstation wirelessly, you need to know your wireless security (if your router is secured).
> go to wireless tab and look for wireless security
> get your key
7. go back to playstation and try to view your wireless network
> connect and type in your key
