The wep key can be found on the router's Setup Page. Open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.0.1 press enter. It will prompt you for username = admin, password = password. Look for wireless tab or wireless security. There you can get the network key

Did you use the 3rd Party setup for the WLAN or the Wireless Zero configuration service.

Goto run

Services.msc

Then stop this service and disable it if your wireless network card has its own wireless search program use this to connect.

First of all try to connect without a WEP or WPA-PSK see if this works then you can create your own WEP key.

Your router will have an admin panel normally 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.2 this will get you onto the admin screen you will need the admin and password this should be in your documentation for the router.

Hope this helps..

It seems like you are trying to access a network other than your own, and the fact that you do not know the codes tells me that it is NOT your network. Try changing the name (SSID) of your network to something unique that you can identify. Try going through all with a network you KNOW is yours.

Turn wireless on


The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up
through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or
Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no
additional hardware is required.

Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the
right, then let go.


The switch will go back to its original position.





Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on
the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle;
In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."


It might also say "Open network and sharing
center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.


Click to highlight the network and click the
"Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up
the router (if applicable).


If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway
page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to
see if security is enabled.


If it is, type in a new key and enter the same
number for the wireless network.

Trying to connect wirelessly to 2 wire. I get limited access icon


Hi groveland1,

I see that you are having issue with your Internet Connection, Limited or no connectivity is a possible issue with your network key / security key on the router and your laptop.

1. Try and check the network key in your router.

2. Check your network settings in the Laptop and see if the security settings in your Laptop is the same as the security/network key in your Router.

3. If possible recreate your wireless connection in windows for a fresh connection from your Laptop to your Router.

4. Change your Network Key in the Router and in your Laptop see if it will connect in-case you may have forgotten you old Network Key.

Hope this helps.

Windows Networking Issue


FIOS and DSL use different modems and or gateway devices. Sounds like you were using a DSL gateway device with networking setup and when you moved to FIOS, the tech did not duplicate your network on your new FIOS gateway. OR you had a 3rd party router e.g. Linksys that was removed from the setup when FIOS was installed.
Either way, Verizon is who you should contact. Just tell them your network went down after you moved from DSL to FIOS. Dont mention Microsoft or Livewebtv.

How to conect to wireless network


Wireless connections to the Internet can be achieved by several methods and it depends upon the method of delivery by the Internet Service Provider in your location.
The most common is by DSL and cable, the modems that are used with DSL and cable connection can have a built-in wireless router. Your computer will require a wireless card to connect to the modem/wireless router and the range is restricted to approx. 100 ft depending where the wireless router is located within the building.

The laptop's wireless card can be a built-in device or a plug-in device eg a PCMCIA card or a USB device. and these can also connect to a wifi hot spot in locations such as McDonalds. Star Bucks etc.

There is another method that can connect into the Internet that uses a USB wireless device that connects to a G3 network, bacically a type of mobile transmission and the device is locked into a specific Internet Service Provider. This method gives a wider mobile range (even across states) of connecting to the Internet but usually at a higher cost.

Basically you need to see what the Internet Service Providers offer in your location. Beware of the costs of the various plans they offer in broadband speed, their download limits and the penality for exceeding the limits etc.

When you decide which method you choose, you need to consider setting up your wireless network securely to prevent unauthorized access.

What type of modem do I need?


bridge modem The 2100 modem is a bridge modem only, it doesn't do either NAT or PPPoE. Don't worry what that means, just that it's good news. It is already a dumb plain pass-through, so you won't have to dumb it down so that it won't conflict with the router's functions. I am also going to make a wild guess here that you are in a part of the Verizon network that was GTE before it was bought by Verizon, and are not using PPPoE, but rather DHCP. If you were in an area that was BellAtlantic before Verizon that means you are on PPPoE and you have had your Verizon DSL for 3 or 4 years or longer (about then they started using the 2200 modem for PPPoE customers). Configure your Windows XP PPPoE client as follows: 1) Go to Start >Control Panel >Network and Internet Connections. 2) Select Network Connections under the Pick a Control Panel icon. 3) Click Create a new connection under Network tasks. 4) Enter your area code in the location information (if asked), and click OK twice. 5) Click Next when the "Welcome to the new connection wizard" window displays. 6) Select Connect to the Internet and click Next. 7) Select Set up my connection manually and click Next. 8) Select Connect using a broadband connection that requires a user name and password and click Next. 9) Type "DSL Modem? ( you can use your ISP Name here) for the ISP name, and click Next. 10) Enter your BellSouth username followed by "@ISP NAME (if required by your ISP)" and password. Confirm your password, and click Next. 11) Click Add shortcut to this connection to my desktop and the DSL Modem icon will be added to your desktop. Click Finish. 12) Click the DSL Modem icon to begin surfing. -- Best of luck
