    No error messages. it is a netgear wnr2000 router. computer #2 sees the network but even though I have the pass key will not connect.

  • barryhartdri Oct 03, 2009

    Both laptops and router are in the same room, about 3 feet apart. (close enough to connect ethernet cable).

    What exactly does it do, besides "will not connect?" Does it give you an error message of any sort? How close is the computer to the router? Is it in the same room? What else is close to the router?

    what is the error message you recieve?

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 configured in the Wireless settings in the 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 or WPA or WPA2 key 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

Can't get online, even though computer says connected


As the router is working and connected to the internet - then its probably and issue with the wireless setup on router or your PC

1) remove any wireless profiles on your PC read here - how to do that http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm then when reconnect it will ask for the key again 2) A firewall maybe blocking your access - disable any firewalls 3) Remove the wireless security if enabled in the router and see if you can connect - if this is the only wireless device connecting - it may interference try also changing the wireless channel in the router - use 1 or 6 or 11

My new d link router works fine..but my acer laptop wont pick it up...it says limited access? what does that mean? I have the security key..it has full signal..just says limited access


Most probably you setup WEP on your router and you're not typing the WEP Key on the computer you're trying to connect to the router.
You could try to remove all security first and once you can connect to the router you add it.


Ensure your wireless adapter's configuration matches the wireless configuration on router. Also ensure your wireless adapter driver status is working well.

If your computer OS is XP, you believed you have correct configuration and you have tried all solutions but still not working, then most probably it's due to winsock problem. You can even try winsockfix to fix the problem,here's the link WINSOCK. Hope it helps..

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Can't get wireless connection on new computer.


This key is set by you in the router setup. It is what makes your router secure, so your neighbors don't use your bandwidth.

Open IE and go to 192.168.1.1 or if that doesn't work try 192.168.0.1

Log in with your ID and PW. In those screens you will find the WEP key you set.
