LOST WIFI SECURITY KEY WORD
If you have lost your WEP/WAP wifi key phrase there is no way to recover it except go into the router administration settings and see if it is in plain text there. If not then you will have to make up a new key phase and apply it to ALL your connected devices.
In future, write the key phrase down on a piece of tape and apply it to the bottom of your router. You can use a hint instead of the actual phrase.
I use the memo function of my cell phone to keep all my passwords and keys.
This is really easy to solve.
On your keyboard, you'll see there's a Function button, labelled Fn (probably in blue) near the left hand ctrl (control) key.
Hold this and press the key that has a little blue aerial on it (an inverted triangle with a line running down the centre), which is probably the F9 key at the same time.
This should activate your laptop's internal wireless adapter.
If you'd like to see the manual, you can download it from [here]. Page 68 has more information about this specific problem.
Locking the router can be done by setting a WEP key. Its a 10 digit alphanumeric key that you can set. Once you set it up, anyone who tries to access your router wirelessly will be prompted for that 10 digit key. Be sure to change your SSID (wireless network name) also so that you can distinguish your own secured wireless network from others.
SSID can be changed on the main setup page.
1. To access it, open Internet explorer while your computer is physically connected to the router.
2. Type http:\\192.168.1.1 (the default IP address of the router.) It will ask you for the username and password.
3. Enter the word "admin" for both username and password. It is the factory default username and password. On the main setup page, you will find the field for SSID or Network name.
4. Type your unique wireless network name and click the Save button on the bottom of the page.
5. On the router's web-based setup page, click the Wireless tab then click the Wireless Security sub-tab
6. Click the drop-down arrow for Security Mode and select WEP.
7. Under WEP Encryption select 64 bits 10 hex digits.
8. Enter a unique word in the Passphrase field, then click Generate.
9. The result will be a string of letters and numbers displayed in the space provided for Key 1.
NOTE: Take note of what is in Key 1. This key will serve as the wireless security password. Keep this key confidential.
10. Click the Save Settings button.
From now on, whenever anyone tries to access your wireless network, they need to enter Key 1 which you only know. There you go. Your wireless network is protected.
It's different on different laptops, normally it's FN and one of the F keys like F2 (normally it shows a symbol below the main key that looks similar to the wi-fi symbol), some have a slider switch on the front (Sony Viao's), others have a button somewhere on the top (Compaq/HP's).
the function key if you look by the windows key it has Microsoft logo there should be a key that's says Fn which is the function key if you press and hold that down it activates the second mode on your keyboard if you look on the buttons you should see second symbol'smostly on the F1 -F12 keys which look for the wirelesssymbol as soon as you let go of the fn key your keyboard returns to normal hope this helps
Can your laptop connect to the internet using an ethernet cable that is connected to the Hawking router?
Check to see if your laptop has a wireless on-off button or switch on the outside of the case. It may even be a combination of two keys "Fn + F2" on some Gateway laptops. When you flip the switch an indicator light of some kind will tell you when your turning the wireless radio on and off. Flick the switch until you're sure the radio is on and try to connect.
