My new laptop keeps losing connection with my ZyXEL P-660HW-T1 V3 router. My old lap top worked fine, what could be the cuase?

The new laptops are not compatible with some of the older model routers.Try turning the power to the router for approximately 10 minutes,shut down your laptop before turning off the power to the router.once the router has been off for ten minutes,turn your laptop back on,as if you are "logging on",let your laptop be idle for about 20 minutes,giving your router time to "reboot" If this does not fix your problem,you'll have to replace your router with one that is more compatible....

I just purchased a new lap top. i have net gear 123for my tower. cannot seem to get the lap top to work. it keeps asking for a security code. Do not know what it is

no we cant know what it is, it needs to be connected via the cable first, then access the router's setup and change the wireless security key.

sometimes the security key is printed on the back of the router

When i unplug lap top lose enternet conection

What is the Operating system on the laptop ?
If it is XP then in the bottom right hand corner you will find Wireless network connection ( looks like 1 computer monitor). Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is windows Vista, then in the bottom right hand corner you will find 2 computer monitor icon. Use that icon to connect to the wireless network.
If it is Windows 98/ME/2000 then use the adapter utility to connect to the wireless network.
For MAC you will see the AIRPORT icon at the top.

Check the wireless settings of the router first . Make sure that yopu have all the wireless settings of the router. If you are not sure about the settings, then open the router set up and check the settings.

My lap top will not accept the 12 digit pass key from the router. Lap top response is that it should be a 13 digit pass key!!

I don't know what system you have on your laptop, but there are many stupid WLAN management applications that come with various equipment, while Windows has a good WLAN management system built in. Try to turn off this "i-know-better" application, usually by going to Networking, choosing the wireless network and checking an option "let Windows manage wireless networks".

Can't get wireless internet to work on dell laptop

May I suggest you give Network Magic a try at solving your connectivity problems. Free to download and evaluate, you may well find it is well worth the couple $ for the 5 full licenses. Get it here:

In addition to connectivity, NM will aid you with security and sharing as well as other fine features.

Dilnk 655 router conected i can connect through wireless on laptop but the desk top which is wired in from router is saying not conected to internet the network magic program says router is not conected...

try reconneccting the lan cable from your router to your main desktop, take it out for about 5 seconds then put it back in, a light should turn on around the port but check with the on screen details. this should fix it, if not you may need to set up a lan connection through thte network thing

I have a two wire router trying to hook up to run my laptop

You need to run from the DSL modem into the ethernet port at the very top of the 1701hg. Use your other 4 ports below to send one the computer and one to your vonage. You will no longer need to "jump" though your vontage unit. Other than connecting the power cables, you are all hooked up.
