Re: wireless internet access

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.

If you have access to the Internet using a LAN cable, then download the Netgear wireless USB adapter to install the driver. After downloading you can remove the LAN cable.
You can also save the driver from your laptop to an USB memory stick and then install the driver in your computer with the USB memory stick.

Need a wireless router for my talk talk broadband

You could use any brand wireless router with your broadband service for a wifi signal for your laptop or any wireless internet to any device that is compatible for it. You first need to make sure your laptop has built in wireless or if it needs an adapter(ex. Wireless notebook adapter, USB Adapter). and if its built in then all you would need to buy is a wireless router(Linksys has a really nice and user friendly setup. Model:WRT54G).

Wirless Network keeps failing


It is possible that you need to further fine tune your WEP configuration. To verify if it's the security lock, try running the laptop and the router without the WEP security (disabled) and determine if you still get the "Limited connection or no connectivity".

If yes, you have just eliminated that area and could consider other possibilities, otherwise you then have to concentrate on the WEP security.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back on any developments (or lack thereof) or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

NetGear Wireless G USB 2.0 Issues

Jane -- several things are required for internet access.
Lets go through step by step and assure the pieces are in place.

I will assume you have a second machine working with the router (wired or wireless does not matter). I would like you to try the following on both machines at let me know what happens.

First you can connect to the router and not have access to the internet. This first to determine the IP configuration values are correct for your network. (assumes Windows XP and probably Vista) - using the working machine

Click Start then All Programs the Accessories then Command Prompt a new window will open -- in that window type the following (one space only before the /)

ipconfig /all

and press enter -- record the following in the responses

IP Address --------------- probably 192.168.0.?
Subnet Mask ------------ probably
Default Gateway -------- probably
DNS Address(es) ------ may be more than 1

on your son's laptop do the same -- you should see the following if the configuration is right.
IIP Address --------------- probably 192.168.0.?
Subnet Mask ------------ same as working machine
Default Gateway -------- same as working machine
DNS Address(es) ------ same as working machine

Now test the connection to the router

in the same window as before enter the following command (replace the with the default gateway from the working machine if different)


The working machine should display 4 messages with elapsed times indicating the ping works.

Your son's machine may display 4 timeout messages indicating it does not work. If the ipconfig above is wrong especially in matching areas to the working machine that could explain the problem. It could also be that the adapter requires additional wireless configuration such as a WEP or WPA password or passphrase, or connection to your network name (SSID) if it is hidden.

Please respond to this issue with a comment telling me what matched in the two ipconfigs and whether or not the ping works hopefully yes at least on the working machine and I will probably be able to provide a solution to the problem.

in the installation manual you have a url you can type in...its something like 192.428.111.1...ect about 10-12 numbers...type this number in the internet browser search window. this will tell you first if you have access to the internet. you should get the settings windows for your router. there you can make adjustments as needed for your rounter unit.once confirmed.

if you are having access to the wireless network you set up the password you set in is obviously incorrect when it was set up. first check the light on the front of the wireless router it should have various light on ..such as power,,usb...dsl...and internet..with the internet light flashing... as a precaution please do a repair connection on your internet access point on the computer ur using..right click the wireless icon at the bottom of your screen if ur using xp..sometimes this repair will be just enough to clear up issues.and allow access.

if this may need to reinstall the unit...there is generally a reset button (very small) on the underside of ur wireless unit and take the appropriate steps..

Belkin n wireless usb speed problem


For your connection to reach 300 MBps, not only must your Belkin WiFi USB adapter be an N, so must your Access Point/Router also be N capable.  Additionally, your Internet/DSL connection would also be a limiting factor on your Internet Connection speed.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
