I have intel wireless installed on a Dell 620 laptop. This machine will hook up to a Belkin router but will not hook to my linksys or Cisco router. Will the intel system stop me from connecting to my Cisco router at home?

There is no reason for brand incompatibility. things you need to check:
what wireless protocol is your card capable of? Most currents cards are B/G capable and some are N. however, if a router is broadcasting N and your card is G your card will not be able to connect. So you need to get them to match. Also, some cards can't connect to a router that's not broadcasting an SSID. If you can't even see the wireless network from your laptop when you scan for existing networks, this could be the reason. If you can see the network but not connect to it, is it asking you for an authentication key? If an authentication key is setup on the router, you'll also need to know what that key is to connect.

I had usualy solved mysterious problems with other intel PRO wireless cards not authenticating, loosing signal, etc, by simply upgrading to the latest intel drivers.

Hope this helps.

If your computer has 3 bars of signal, it's ok, don't mess with it.
If you want better reception, you can connect the Belkin wireless router near your notebook with a cable to the Linksys router.

Dell laptop with wireless card unable to connect to network


well im assuming you were at the routers general settings page for wireless settings and saw the wep key you entered, wep is advised for this method of connection, what is happening is that the router is braocasting a predeterminined key to acept authentication from the client laptop. if you look in your routers settings on the web page enabled site youll see that their is a key code with numbers and letters this is called hex key, it is used to login to your router. theirs a few possabiltities here 64 bit and 128 but 128 is advised, then simply write that key down and connecto to router when prom,pted enter that key you just saw and you will be able to select 128 bit or by defult it may have 128 selected. good luck, to get to the router try http://192.168.1.1 good luck with the router.login information should be in your manual that came with the router but most as generic like username admin password password

Belkin Router - not wireless


As I've stated in many previous posts both Belkin and D-link routers (wired and wireless) are "famous" (for lack of a better word) for dropping connection with your internet carrier.

I *highly* recommend Linksys routers ...whether you get wired or not, they're just plain better ...and powered by Cisco technology. The best part - they're roughly the same price or cheaper than those "other" routers.

Go buy one at Walmart. Hook it up. See the difference. If it doesn't do everything like it should, take it back and you've lost nothing. If it does, take the Belkin and sell it on Craigslist or eBay.

Hope this helps - remember to rate

I hooked my Belkin-G-Plus-Mimo-39000 to my laptop. Got it working, now I wanted to get it on my Desktop. its installed, but its asking for a NETWORK KEY. What to do from here.


The Network Key is the method for encrypting a transmission on a wireless network. If you originally setup your wireless router you should know this key. Otherwise, contact whomever setup your wireless router and ask what the key may be. You will want to ask whether it is WEP or WPA as well.

To reset, you can clear the key if you can login to the router, otherwise holding the reset button while the router is unplugged will clear the key (and all the other settings so this might be dangerous). To clear it, hold the button for at least ten seconds.

After a clear, you will need to setup the router again. Consult your documentation if you have it. If it is a netgear or linksys, use IP 192.168.1.1 User=Admin password=Administrator, if you have a D-Link, try IP 192.168.0.1 and User=Admin password=Admin. If it is something else, try either of the previous combos. (unless it is a Cisco, then it is 10.0.0.2 User=Administrator password=Cisco).

Hope this helps, even a little.
