Well, follow the steps below for a better way to configure your connection:

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.0.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as password (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

Now perform the steps below on the wireles vista computer:

1. Click START, Click Control Panel then click classic view in left hand side menu.
2. In the main screen, open up NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER.
3. In the left hand side menu open up MANAGE WIRELESS NETWORKS.
4. If you see any name in the list, please select the name and click remove.
5. Once the list is empty, click on ADD, select the first option, ADD A NETWORK THAT IS IN RANGE OF THE COMPUTER.
6. Click on your network name SSID and click on connect. If you have a password setup on the router enter the security key.
7. This should setup the wireless network.

I hope the steps above will help resolve the issue. If you need any further help please email us back so that we can continue to work on a solution.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

You can check the router settings and change the wireless card to match.
If you want to restore the Netgear back to the default settings then :-
On the back of the router there is a small hole marked RESET, insert a straighten paper clip into this hole for a few seconds until the LED lights flash.
To access the router configuration open a browser and type http://192.168.0.1
then login = admin and PW = password
Don't forget to change the password.
After you configure the wireless settings then you need to configure the wireless with the same settings.

Wireless security settings on laptop do not match network settings


You will need to change the existing connection to match the "new" settings. I have had this issue with visita as well. If you open the wireless connections, go to advanced settings click on the "saved" SSIDs you can either delete the exisiting one, and start over (easy) or you can modify the settings to match the "new" upgraded system. Visita and XP store these for future use, problem is if one changes it "Doesn't match" so just delete the existing one and recreate it.

If they changed the password for the system or the type of encryption WEP to WPA etc this will correct the issue.
You may want to turn off the IPv6 which can also cause issues with Wifi in some locations.

My question is ''thes settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network'' how to connect the wireless internet on my computer now? PLEASE see


See there are some old settings saved on your computer for the same wireless network name.
I believe the operating system on your computer is windows VISTA / 7 .
Now you will need to remove the network from the preferred network list. then add the new network on your computer and you will be able to connect to the network. Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of your network. If you are not sure about the wireless settings of your network then you will need to check the wireless settings of the network.
