Are you sure you are aloud to use that connection? you have to tell the IT administrator to either stop filtering your MAC address or give you the password so you can enter

Cannot get internet access on a laptop because we do not know the "network security key" on an HP laptop through a Cisco Lynksis router.

Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router.

Unable to sign in to my emails. keeps going to internet explorer cannot display the webpage..

You need to be online to check E-mails-and Internet explorer cannot display a webpage if your not online-- So it seems the problem is you cannot get online.
If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS, .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ..
try resetting the router (disconnect the power to it for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---next---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)
this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart

If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this.

Just bought a new acer aspire one netbook, trying to connect to the internet wirelessly, got a router from our internet provider but still can't get do i get the router to find the computer?

There is (I think) a switch on the side of this laptop that switches on the wireless function, if not, try the FN and one of the F keys. You should then see the wireless light come on. Depending on the router security settings, you will need to enable wireless connectivity in the router and input the password you have set whn the laptop finds the connection

Acer 5633wlmi 1.66GHz 120GB hard drive 802.11a/b/g wireless LAN. lost my wireless internet,cable works fine, laptop says wireless is connected but it tells me I am not connected when I try to get onto the...


What i would do in this situation is ist i would check that all wires are connected properly to the router

Try resetting my router back to factory settings there is normally a reset switch on the router

If that does the trick and if you want to make any adjustments to the router look up the manual or google it to find out what ip address you need to type into your top browser then click save settings and log out

If that dont work right click the wireless icon in the task bar down on the right hand side go to view available wireless networks then go over to the left hand side go to
Advanced settings

Then up top to wireless networks

Make sure a tick in top left saying use windows to configure my network settings

Go to bottom right Advanced tick in any available networks then go back to your network ssid or the name of the network that you normally connect to DELETE IT click ok

Then in a very short time windows should give you a warning of wireless network or networks available

So click on the notice from windows or right click the wireless network icon bottom right hand side Go to view wireless networks

Your network should now be back in there so highlight it rightclilck it and connect typing in Security Key if nec

Hopefully this will get you back on line if not

You could try a system restore back to around the date that it started to play up

hopefully this will get you back online

Need help with Wifi Connection with COMPAQ EVO N610C LAPTOP

First you will need a router which will enable you to create a wireless network for your internet connection. I recommend, if you're purchasing online, to use Tigerdirect. Then you would need a USB wireless adapter for your laptop which will enable it to communicate with the wireless router and establish an internet connection.
Below are some links for the most affordable and best rated products you need.

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.

Home network set up

Possibly the best solution for moving the emails is not as much about a home network as it is about the method you use. I definitely enjoy having a home network because it allows me to share music and files between my computers and it allows me to give internet access to friends when they come over.

That being said, it sounds like you are using Outlook Express for your email and are going to be moving it to Vista's "Windows Mail", which is a repackaging of the same program.

To do this, you will have to export your email in a format that the Windows Mail in your new laptop can read. Luckily you aren't the first person to do this. Try this instructional page. The trick is that where this walkthrough assumes you will be moving the data in a thumb drive or other transportable device, if you had a home network set up you could save it directly to the shared directory of your new computer. That's the only difference.

After you have followed the instructions, make sure all of your email has imported properly and then delete it from the Windows XP laptop. Also, remember to delete from your thumb drive or other device the file you used to transfer the email over to the new computer.

If you don't already have wireless set up, it is probably the easiest and most friendly way to have a home network. Microsoft has a good starter introduction to it. But the basics are pretty basic. If you have DSL or Cable internet already and your "router" or modem doesn't already have a wireless router built in (no antennae), then you'll need a wireless router. Even if you don't have any DSL/Cable service you'll want a wireless router. Check out Netgear, 3Com, and Linksys for these.

Try letting windows manage your laptop wireless connection.  If you are using a third party sw to connect to the internet remove it and ask windows to manage your wireless connection.  Also verify that the router power cable is connected directly to the outlet and not an outlet splitter or surge protector.  Make sure your built in wireless is working and connected properly and test it than.
