Unfortunately you did not give more information, so I 'm taking a wild guess here. If this solution does not solve you problem, let me know.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either

  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2.

To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

One very important thing to note here is that the SSID is generated within your router settings and not your computer's configurations. It is the name you give (or your router has given) to your wireless network. If your ISP setup your network, it will generally contain the company's name followed by an alpha-numeric component. If you are running defaults from a router you purchased yourself, the SSID will generally contain the name of the manufacturer followed by an alpha-numeric component.

That being said, linking to your router can vary from one unit to the next. Your best bet to complete this link is to identify the make and model of your wireless router. Once you have done that Google that information and find the manual to establish the steps for accessing your router's configuration. Generally speaking you will access the router via the IP 192.168.0.1 with the User ID of admin and a password of admin (if you have not changed any defaults). These are not constant from one manufacturer to the next, so again, Google the make and model.

If you had set up your wireless network previously, and cannot recall the credentials you established you may need to revert to the factory settings and start over (yet again, instructions will be found by Googling the make and model).

As an aside, you may find it necessary to use a WPA key versus a WPA2 key. Bear that in mind if you configure your router and you still get tantrums when trying to link up Netflix. You can use WPA2 if your encryption is AES, but if you utilize TKIP you will be limited to WPA. You will also want to ensure that it is broadcasting in 802.11b/g. Your Wii will not recognize the newer 802.11n or 802.11ac formats. My recommendation would be to run with a WPA2 (AES) on 802.11g (if possible).

The acronyms above may be a little flustering if you are not familiar with router configurations, but once you acquire a manual and start the configuration you should realize that the setup is really not all that difficult. In many cases, you will see it is going to give you a selection between one or the other.

Good luck... let me know if you need any clarification.

Hi

The Router configuration is not that much difficult, only few thing you have sure,
1) Correct ADSL Connection User name & password,
2) Chose unique ip address in All host.

Follow the mention bellow instruction to configure and connect to Wifi Router,

  • Plug the network cable ( Mine was Blue ) which comes with the Router Box pack to your computer. The other end goes into any of the Router Ethernet Port ( 1 or 2 or 3 or 4 )
  • Now type in 192.168.1.1 in IE or Firefox or any browser. You will prompted for password which is admin. You must be logged into Linksys Router.
  • Now since your ADSL modem is also having the same IP , we will change the IP address for WRT54G2 Router to 192.168.5.1
  • Under Setup >Basic Setup look for Network Setup and Change Router IP. Change to 192.168.5.1 and Save changes.
  • Since the IP has changed you will need to close the Browser.
  • Sometimes the IP doesnt change automatically. Do a IPCONFIG / RELEASE and then IPCONFIG / Renew

Making WRT54G2 Router talk to ADSL broadband modem

Wrt54g2 dhcp problem


You must enable the DHCP setting on wireless router if you've configured the computer's wireless adapter to obtain an IP address automatically. If not you will get the "failed to acquire an IP address" error when you try to connect to wireless network! Also don't forget to configure big enough IP range on router's DHCP setting, because the router won't be able to assign IP to 6 computers if you only configured 5 IP space on router.

How do I secure the router so that no one else can access it? model Dlink - DIR-615 Bruce


You should follow the next steps:
1. Log in via http://192.168.0.1
default username: Admin (use admin if it doesn't work) password: (leave it blank with no password) ----- 2. Go to setup tab ----> internet ----> internet connection wizard 2.1 CHANGE PASSWORD ! click next 2.2 choose time zone. 2.3 Configure your Internet Connection DHCP Connection (Dynamic IP Address) Choose this if your Internet connection automatically provides you with an IP Address.
2.4. press "clone your computer's MAC address" ; hostname: 'your computer name'
3. Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ----> Wireless Network Setup Wizard (after this we're gonna do manual settings) 3.1 give your network a name= SSID 3.2.Automatically assign a network key (Recommended) and chose WAP or WAP2 3.3 Write down the network key Or do printscr and save this page.
You can leave it here, but it's better if you continue with the next step: -----
4. Go to setup tab ----> wireless settings ---->Manual Wireless Network Setup 4.1
Wireless Network Settings Enable Wireless : ALWAYS Wireless Network Name : (Also called the SSID) the name you gave in 3.1 802.11 Mode : chose "mixed 802.11n,g and b" Enable Auto Channel Scan : YES Wireless Channel : AUTO Transmission Rate : BEST (Mbit/s) Channel Width : AUTO 20/40 MHz Visibility Status : !!!Invisible!!! (so that no outsiders know your SSID except you)

4.2 Wireless Security Mode : WPA-Personal
4.3 WPA mode: WPA2 only Cipher type: AES Group key update interval : 3600 seconds
4.4 Pre-Shared Key : the one that you generated in 3.2.
-----
Now you're all set, but you can't see your network from your PC (as you set it to be invisible in step 4.1). Now you'll have to set it up manually (the specific instructions will depend on your operating system) You'll need to enter the following date when you set it: your SSID name that you entered in 3.1 wireless security: WPA2 personal type: AES enter password that you've generated in 3.2 (or 4.4).

Epson sx510w prints using a cable but can't get it to print wireless


The specs for your model Epson allows you to connect the you network by wireless and by LAN cable.

The specs are as follows :-
Wi-Fi Wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g – compatible with 802.11n*
*Transmission rate will be limited to 802.11g and will operate in the 2.4 GHz frequency band
Ethernet Wired LAN IEEE 802.3 (100BASE-TX, 10BASE-T)
Other PictBridge
Wireless security
WEP – 64bit
WEP – 128bit
WPA – PSK (TKIP) – compliant with WPA2
WPA – PSK (AES) – compliant with WPA2

To connect the printer by a LAN cable you need to configure the Epson for an IP address that suits your network configuration and connect the LAN cable to your wireless router/hub.

The reason why you cannot print using wireless is because the wireless configuration in the Epson is not setup with the router's wireless configuration ie. SSID WPA encryption etc.

For instructions of setting up a LAN network printer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-
http://www.fixya.com/support/r3668797-setting_up_shared_network_printer

For instructions on setting up a wireless printer, the Epson wireless settings need to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Go into your router's wireless and note the SSID, and encryption settings etc and configure the Epson's wireless settings with the router's wireless settings. This will allow the Epson to connect to the wireless router. Please click on this link for instructions to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router (if you have not already do so) and configure the wireless card in the computers and wireless printer (the instructions for configuring the wireless card in the printer is the same as for the wireless card in the computers via the printer's menu screen).

Be sure you use same security protocol on your PC than in your WLAN:
WEP or WPA or WPA2 protocol
Passphrase (PSK ) or Password
TKIP or AES.
Use same Key.Passphrase on your notebook as in your Access point.
Check if your Access point/router has access list enabled: either you disable it in your AP either you add your PC MAC address to the list.
