Most commonly that the wifi password is incorrect, it could also mean that you are using the wrong type of security key or that the router you are connecting to uses mac filtering and your devices mac address is not registered with the router.
Login the router setup page . And under router security settings uncheck the option (block anonymous internet request). Set the wireless channel as 6 or 9. And then use wep security key. this will surely work.
I would remove all the MAC filtering and also remove the WEP secruity on the router and see if it connects like that
then remove all the wireless pofiles on you PC using the above link
now put the secruity WEP back on and re-enter the key and see if connects - if it does , go back into the router and set the MAC filtering you want
Reset your wireless password/key. Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.
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. To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 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.
With the router powered on, use a small thin object to press and
hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds. The router lights will
flash and this will restore the router to factory default.
Connect your computer to one of the routers lan ports with an
etherent cable. Open your web browser and navigate to 192.168.2.1.
This should show the router status page with the default settings.
This will make the router unsecured again, so be sure to go back into setup and reset your Wireless security. I suggest using WEP authentication, and using a 10 digit ph # for your key (that way its easy to remember).
If you don't put in the same wep key you won't be able to connect....take that S out..also not every device can connect to wpa ...use the same key if not able to connect reconfig the wireless settings change the key..,
Try using 'Network Magic' free download from their site. I find that this product makes connecting easy. You do not need to purchase the PRO version, the free will work fine for connecting.
If that does not work, log into your router using a wired pc and check if MAC addressing is enabled, if it is you will need to update the table with your new laptop's MAC.
If not, disable security and test to see if you can connect, if you still can not then you may have a issue with the pc. If you can, then check to ensure that the encryption you are using is supported by the PC's wireless card.
Turn reset the password on the router, re-enable security and try again.
This is a common and annoying problem. Your router is running and connected, but they are either not using the same encryption keys or else you have some other setting incorrect (encryption type is a common one).
Turn off the laptop's wireless connection and enable its cable (wired) connection. Connect the laptop to the back of the router physically with a network cable. In a browser type 192.168.1.1 (or other similar number - check your router's quick start guide). Log into the router and go to the WIRELESS SETTINGS. Write down everything you see (channel, station ID, encryption type and key, and whether MAC ADDRESS LOCKING is on (if it is turn it off for now)). Take these settings, reverse the process on your laptop and try to connect wirelessly with the new settings. They have to be exactly the same
If it all works, you need to go back into the router and enable MAC ADDRESS LOCKING after giving it your laptop's MAC ADDRESS, enable the highest standard encryption both the router and the laptop support, and turn off station ID broadcasting if possible.
If you still cannot connect wirelessly, connect again through the wire connection, and turn off encryption, turn off MAC ADDRESS LOCKING, and try again.
