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

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.

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
http://192.168.0.1 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.

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.

Cant connect wii to internet


The unit can connect to the Internet by utilizing its 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, which is built in, for wireless connections or via a USB-to-Ethernet adaptor for DSL connections.
For your wireless connection or Wi-Fi, the 802.11b Wi-Fi has a data rate of 11 Mbits per second and has an indoor range of 30m or approximately 98 ft. The 802.11g has the same indoor range, however the data rate is at 54 Mbits per second. If you have an existing wireless connection or are in a Wi-Fi hotspot, the unit will connect to your wireless connection automatically out of the box. If you do not have a wireless network, however, you will need to have your wireless network subscription done or set-up first. Once you have wireless Internet access, you then search for your access point, put in your security settings and you’re good to go. It would also be advisable to have a wireless router for this so that you won’t have to shuttle the connection between your PC and your Wii. wi-fi-usb-connector.thumbnail.jpgAnother option would be to connect your Wii via the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector. This accessory allows Nintendo Wii users who do not have an existing Wi-Fi connection or a compatible Wi-Fi network to create one through their broadband or DSL connected computer. This is inserted into your existing computer’s USB port and the Wi-Fi USB Connector acts as a wireless access point for the Wii. This allows the user access to the internet and to play Wi-Fi Connection games from Nintendo Online.
nintendo-wii-lan-adapter.thumbnail.jpgFor your DSL connection, however, you will need to have quite a few things. You can use a WII LAN adapter to connect your Wii to your DSL modem. You can also use a router so that you can use your PC and your Wii at the same time. With the LAN Adapter though, to use or plug in the Wii, you must disconnect your PC. This can be quite tedious since you will have to plug in and out your PC and your Wii every time you need to use one or the other. A LAN Adapter is fairly cheap, but if you get a router, your PC and your Wii can go online at the same time, saving you the hassle of connecting one or the other when you need them. You can then hook up the existing ethernet cords to the back of the router and connect it to the Wii via a USB 2.0 cord.

i hope this helps

Hi, to connect your computer to the wireless network of the router you need to have a wireless adapter. The bluetooth adapter will not work in this case as the router does not communicate with the bluetooth signals.

Purchase a wireless adapter like NETGEAR WG111

Rate it, if it helps.

You can connect to the Internet using your DSL wireless router by several methods.
1. If your HP has a LAN port the you can connect to your wireless router with a LAN cable (provided you have a spare LAN port on the router.
2. You can use a USB wireless adapter to connect to the wireless router.
3. You can use a PCMCIA wireless card to connect to the wireless router.
Both the wireless USB and PCMCIA wireless adapter are approx. $50, my preference is to use a PCMCIA adapter, it leaves the USB port free for other devices,such as USB memory sticks, especially if the laptop has only one USB port.

To my knowledge of understanding is as if the WIFI is weak and cannot get connected to any network around anymore so if you wish to have a wirelless connection you can still make use of a USB doggle and the network operator or manufacturer will give you the access and you browse anywhere you go with your system and the USB will be connected to your system ok
