Access Internet using wireless USB adapter

Dear Sir, I have a wireless router connect to a PC and am able to browse the Internet for quite sometime now. I recently have installed another PC in a different room and have attached and installed a wireless LAN mini USB adapter (IEEE 802.11b compatible, portable) to it, but am unable to browse the Internet. While trying to connect to the LAN it is asking for WEP identification. How do I get this "WEP". Am I missing something? I basically need some hep in setting up an internet connect to this new PC. Many Thanks

Re: Access Internet using wireless USB adapter

There is a program that is called wireless keyview. What it will do is decrypt the wireless key that you already have and display it in plain test for you to write down and back up. This will also show you the pass phrase for all of the other wireless networks that you have connected to as well.

Re: Access Internet using wireless USB adapter

Apparently either you or someone else enabled encryption on your wireless router. This is in general a good thing, it keeps neighbors and people around your unit from accessing your network.

First are you sure the wireless is accessing your router -- there may be several routers named default or linksys in radio range?

Second you may be able to find the passphrase / key / password in the configuration of the wireless in the other computer.

Third if you can access the router config

Generally by typing something along the lines of into a browser like Internet Explorer
then you need a userid and password (that defaults may be in the manual for the device)
Then navigating to wireless security or some equivalent name you should be able to find the WEP passphrase, key, password.

Re: Access Internet using wireless USB adapter

You can find the WEP code in your setting on your router. Just get into your bios on your router and find the wireless WEP code you will see it is a 26 digit code just type that into any other computer on that router and make sure workgroup is the same too. Once you put the 26 digit code in you should be online now, Hope that helps Let Me Know Thanks Bear001 If you need more help write back here.

Laptop died and now I cant connect my desktop with the belkin usb adapter. It just keeps saying aquiring network address.

Use the Ethernet cable to verify the router or modem is working and connects to the Internet. If so, then check your wireless adapter in the desk top through device manager - it should detect the Belkin. Also, verify you are entering the correct WEP keys to access the wireless connection to the router or modem - sometimes it gets typed in wrong.

You might not be getting a correct ip from your wireless router.

first, try to power down the computer and your netgear router for about a minute or two. turn the router on first. once the lights are stable on the router, boot up your computer. if your still not able to access the internet. try this

go to start > control panel > network and internet > network connections or network and sharing center > right click on wireless network connection and go to properties > highlight "internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" > left click on properties, the wireless network connnection properties will then be opened.
make sure that the radio buttons are on "obtain an ip address automaticaly" & "obtain DNS server address automaticaly".

Is there anything in a PC that can cause interference with a wireless network? Because firefox ate my earlier question, I'll keep this short: PC used to keep laptop from connecting to internet when it was...

there is nothing inside a PC that will keep it or anything else from connecting to a wireless network. You have to lookout for things that use the same frequency such as cordless phones and believe it or not microwave ovens. both broadcast at 2.4Ghz which is the same frequency wireless routers and access points use. Your problem may also be a neighbor with a wireless router or access point using the same channel. Wireless routers and access points have 11 different channels that they can broadcast on and if you and your neighbor are using the same channel there will be interference. try changing the channel on your wireless router or access point.

Do i have to have a linksys router to be able to use usb adapter?

No you do not, but you do need some form of a wireless router to make that Internet connection wireless. Depending on which modem you have that connects to the Internet, you might already have a wireless router.
