To test your Internet connection use a LAN cable, connect to your laptop to your router and if you can get an Internet connection then most likely your USB wireless adapter is not configured correctly for connecting to your wireless router.
To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Wanting to make my laptop wireless connection


Hello.

Connect the MODEM (device you received from your Internet Serivce Provider that gets the Internet signal) to the router via the WAN port. WAN stands for Wide Area Network and this gets you out to the Modem and then to the Internet.

Ports 1 and higher are for computers and network printers that you can directly connect to your LAN - Local Area Network.

To secure your connection, you will need to configure your router and you will need to connect your laptop to the router (either wireless or via one of the numbered ports on the back of the router), open a web browser and enter the IP address of the router.

Since you did not put the model of the router, I cannot give you specifics on how to secure the connection. You can go to the D-Link web site, find your router, download the manual and it will walk you thru the settings.

Basically, you will be entering a WEP key (a set of letters and numbers that you know) to allow only wireless computers that have this key.

Wireless card on packard bell laptop not working


I believe your problem is the network key, you changed it most likely. And you are now locked out of the network. The "key" in your computer must match the "key" in the access point (wireless router). WEP is a security protocol that runs on the wireless link. The 169 number tells me your wireless adapter can not create a link between it and the wireless router. So you are not connected. You'll need to get the "key" from the wireless router. Try entering 192.168.0.1 (that a guess on my part as to the number, generally this is the gateway address) as a web address on your desktop and look at the security settings in the wireless router.


Or else, restart the router and try to connect it again.. Anyone of this should work

No network code for router want to connect my laptop to it


Hello friend,
i guess that you are talking about wireless code, in this case you will need to connect the laptop to the router via Ethernet cable to configure it and then unplug the cable and use the wireless.
so you connect the ethernet cable between the laptop and one of the ports on the router from 1 to 4. then access to the router web interface which is usually 192.168.1.1. then go the wireless tab and name your wireless access point and put a password to secure your network. After that you can unplug your Ethernet cable and use the wireless on your laptop to connect your router wirelessly.
Best Regards,

First connect your laptop hardwired to your router. Now access the web-based configuration of the router by entering its IP address in your web browser. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1. Login by entering your username and password. The default username is "admin" and the password is blank. Click the WIRELESS link from the menu options on the left side of the configuration page. For the Security settings, choose Shared Key Click the radio button to turn WEP On Enter 10 digit number in the key.That will be your new Key for secured network Click the Apply button to save your setting and reboot the router Remove the cable between router and laptop. Now search for the wireless network and connect with new key.

this could be any number of things, but a good thing to try is downloading winsock from microsoft's web site and running it on your laptop. It is an internet setting reset utility that should put all your settings back to default.

Need help setting up linksys with laptop


do not worry about it..
if you are still online with the desktop..
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
If should ask for a user name and a passwd.. if it is not ..try with 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.5.1 if still not..
then for a dsl connection you might have changed the ip address of your router..

To check ipaddress
click start then run and in run type cmd and click ok..
you would be in a black dos prompt..
type ipconfig and press ok.. you would find the ipaddress

Step 3:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

Step 4:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router’s IP Address
then press [Enter].

Step 5:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click the Wireless tab.

Step 6:
Look for Wireless Network Name (SSID) and if it’s still set to ‘linksys’ change it to something unique then click Save Settings. or else if the name is changed leave it..
ans below the wireless tab select the Wireless Security sub tab.in the blue bar. check for the defalt transmit key and key 1 if its already setup, then make a note of the key and go to Step 12 if not setb up wireless security first

Step 7:
Select any number under the Default Transmit Key to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected number 1.

Step 8:
Select 128 bits under WEP Encryption.

Step 9:
Type a wireless network password of your choice such as “MySecretKey”, then click Generate.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 26 characters.

Step 10:
The result will be a string of random characters. Copy the resulting string since this will be the key to your wireless network.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.

Step 11:
Click 3695-017.png.

Step 12:

now go to your latop. right click wireless network connectios icons and click view wireless network.. (if it is xp os)
you would fine the name of the n/w try connecting to it, it would ask for the n/w key enter the 26 digit key which you have setup and click connect, you would go online with your laptop..
