Re: network maybe out of the range

1. My wireless card is dell
2. channel is set to 6, WEP , 128 strength. and yes it is 26 char and i entered it again on my wireless just to be sure it was right.
I really believe that when Net gear helped me set up my router on Monday night that they config something incorrectly and this is why I believe that

Yesterday I changed my router setting to
Security: disable
Channel :11

I went to my wireless computer and still could not enter the MY network. However I could enter someone else’s unsecured network in my area. So I believe it is not my wireless card, the location of the 2 systems are on the same place as they on Friday 12/7 before I reinstalled windows xp on my system.

Re: network maybe out of the range

If the technician set up encryption and set the router so that it does not broadcast its SSID then you will not see it unless you enter the key on your computer. Did the technician give you the wireless key? If not, you may need to connect an ethernet cable between your computer and router and reset this.

Let me know if you need more help.

I have belkin connect n150 and i have two laptops my one laptop is connect to wireless but the one laptop cant access to wireless it says no wireless network were found in range..

If your message is like this " no wireless network found in range make sure wireless on the computer is On". All you need to do is look for the wireless switch usually located on the side or the back of your laptop. Sometimes its near the F keys or start button. You may check your laptop manual to see where to locate the wireless switch , or you can check the laptop manufacturers website usually they gave information on where to locate or enable the wireless feature of laptop.

Can't connect to friends network


They are four reasons why your wireless would say "acquiring network address" and later changing into "Limited or no connectivity"

1) Invalid WEP/WPA Encryption key.
2) Mac Filtering, Your friends might have disallowed the mac address of your laptop or he it might be filtered.
3) Short IP range mentioned on the router (May your friend has specified a short ip address range for DHCP)
4) Invalid configuration for wireless on Windows Vista

To this problem, do this on your laptop

1) Start >> Control Panel >> Network and Sharing Center (Classic View) >> Manage Wireless network>> remove the wireless network by clicking and then right clicking on top of it and remove.
2) Now try to connect again to the wireless network, reenter the key and that should do it.

If this doesn't work, then probably you have to ask your friend about the 2 and 3 possible cause listed above.

Good luck!
And Thanks.

Unidentified network which has limited connectivity

You're network card may be disabled, and that would be why you are unable to connect to yout network/the internet through your network card, to check this go to your network settings, right click on the "Local Area Connection" and if the option is there to "enable" then click it because your card has been disabled, if disable is there in stead then I'm stumped. with regards to "unidentified network" This usually comes up when someone has a wireless network created, but they have the settings made to not broadcast (show) the SSID (name) of the network. This is done for extra security, because in order for someone to connect to the wireless signal they need to know the type of encryption used, the key or passphrase for the encryption and on top of that the network name. Limited connectivity means that you are "connected" only in the sense that you can see the network connection, but you are unable to do anything with it.

I'm not able to connect my Lenovo laptop with my Linksys WRt54G wireless router. The Access Connections software on the laptop gives the following three (3) error messages: "Verify that the encryption...

Temporarily connect to the router with a cable and reconfigure it to use a different wireless channel. While you're there, this is a good time to change your security mode - WEP is dangerously weak and you should switch to WPA unless you have a very good reason not to.

If all else fails, there's a reset switch (hidden inside a hole) on the back of the router.

That message means that your wireless security key has been changed to a different password. All you need to do is go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Network, then delete all the listed wireless profiles there. Now click on Add > Add a Network that is in range of the computer > Choose your network and connect. Make sure to type in a correct network key. That should do it.

Hi, May be your router is now running a more secure algorith and needs password etc which the old one can't handle. You may have to downgrade your router to the older system..not a good idea.
