Wireless internet access

Hi there hope you can help me, we bought our son a laptop for christmas and wanted him to have nternet access on it, we have a belkin ADSL modem with Wireless G-Router which runs our family PC and also our daughter's laptop with no problems, but when we try to connect via son's laptop it asks us for a security password which could be numbers or a word we believe, we tried our passwords we use for pc but no luck.

Mandy,
The password is a WPA Shared Key. The secret key will be shown in your routers security or advanced or network configuration page.......if you forgot the key then the best alternative will be to reset the router
you could simply create a new WPA-PSK and then setup each machine again that needs wireless access to your network.

I want to add a laptop to my network or at least get access to the nternet through my Liksys/Cisco E2000. The laptop is running XP. It keeps asking for a WPA key. Can't find the WPA key.


Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) are two security protocols and security certification programs developed by the WF Allianceto secure wireless computer networks. The Alliance defined these in response to serious weaknesses researchers had found in the previous systems.

Windows 7 and D-Link DSL-2640R router. I have recently bought a new laptop which supports windows 7, the talktalk cd will not work so i do not know my routers settings. Well my internet connection always...


Hi
I presume that your internet was working fine before you bought your new laptop. Unless you've done something to change it it should still be working as before.
You shouldn't need a CD - if you think about it you don't need a CD when you log in in Starbucks so why should you need one at home?
The only thing you need to know is the router's wireless name; Talktalk 12345etc, and its password - which is the password your son is using.
I can't explain why you can't connect when your son is connected - as the router should be able to host 253 laptops (very very slowly mind) - unless the router has been set with an access list that only allows his laptop to connect.

Hi, I have an IBM R51 Type 2887 Thinkpad that came with Windows XP Home edition. I formatted the laptop and put the Windows XP Professional in it. However, it could not install few key drivers (Eg. CD ROM,...


You need to access a computer that is connected to the Internet, (try going to a friend or work mate or nternet cafe etc.)

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP audio driver for your model laptop,

Copy the downloaded files and install them on your computer.

Unable to connect to internet when setting up new laptop


Hi...yes, he will need an ISP if he wants to access the internet from home. But he could also use a public wireless hotspot, or borrow your connection (if you're willing to let him!) - at least until he has set up his own. Mobile broadband is also an option.
Hope this helps

Re:ISlow nternet in my Toshiba Satellite Laptop


You need to secure your router. Your router might be unsecured and your neighbors can connect to it without you knowing and you get to share the bandwidth of your internet to them which causes it to slow down. Contact your router manufacturer and have them assist you securing it. Others tend to connect to unsecured network and have free internet.

Hope this helps.

Laptop


Hi,

It really depends on what "modem" Orange provided you with and how your personal PC is connected to the modem.

If the "modem" provided by Orange uses WiFi (such as Livebox) networking, then it is a matter of setting up your daighter's laptop to access and use the Livebox WiFi Network. In this case no router is needed since your modem is also a router.

If your PC is connected via Ethernet port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" is a single Ethernet output port, you would need an AP/Router (Wireless since I am presuming the your daughter's laptop would be accessing the Internet wirelessly) such as the LinkSys WRT54G.

If your PC is connected via USB port to the "modem" and Orange's "modem" has only a USB output port (no Ethernet), you need to make your PC as the default gateway/software router and share your PC's Internet connection. If you are connecting your daughter's laptop using Ethernet cable, then you don't need a WiFi AP/Router but an ordinary hub. If on the other hand the new laptop would connect wirelessly, you would still need something like the WRT54G.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post again how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
