I have tried to set up a WEP encrypted network. My laptops ( i have 2 one with Vista and one with XP) connect fine. When i go to google the first page appears ( not from cache as i have cleared it ). But if i give any search it does not work and 'Page cant be displayed\ msg is displayed. Its happenning with all the site. I mean the home page comes after that the connection goes off. The thing can be reconnected if i switch on and switch off the router. But it happens so frequently ( It works for 30 Sec only ) that it is frustrating. The connection also is pathetically slow. I have a 3 MBPS connection ( i am in Mexico and thats the max ). I think there is some parameter somewhere missing. Please help. My wife is scolding me everyday not being able to chat with her parents :-)

Your router's wireless encryption setting (WEP) has been changed.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access.
The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key.
The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings.
To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.
You will need to change the existing connection to match the "new" settings. I have had this issue with visita as well. If you open the wireless connections, go to advanced settings click on the "saved" SSIDs you can either delete the exisiting one, and start over (easy) or you can modify the settings to match the "new" upgraded system. Visita and XP store these for future use, problem is if one changes it "Doesn't match" so just delete the existing one and recreate it.
If they changed the password for the system or the type of encryption WEP to WPA etc this will correct the issue. You may want to turn off the IPv6 which can also cause issues with Wifi in some locations.
The WEP encryption is configured in the wireless settings of the wireless router. Open a WEB browser and type in the IP configuration address of the wireless router and goto the encryption setting to view the encryption code. Then goto the PSP wireless setting and enter the wireless router's encryption code.
Please go in to your router and change the wireless setting from WPA2-PSK to WEP. Ansd then try to connect your laptop. To windows after you change setting to WEP (XP bottom right hand side you have system tray in that you have a wireless sign click on it. It ask for the password which you will change put that password click connect) For laptop also same in case it not work then (window icon>control panel>network and sharing center>wireless connection>properties>put the password click connect (then it will check out the wireless signal after sometime you will'be able to connect). Hope this will resolve your issue.
Just make sure your wireless connection settings on your laptop matches the wireless settings on your router. If you have wireless encryption enabled on your router, just type the network key on the wireless settings on your laptop.
if you are using wpa encryption, you need to make sure that your wireless computers are wpa-compliant. if not, use wep as your encryption.
if you're using wep, you need to enter the 10-digit or the 26-digit hexadecimal code to your wireless computers instead of the passphrase.
Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
Click Security under Wireless menu.
Under Security, you can select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bitWEP)or WPA/WPA2-personal (PSK). Note: make sure that your wireless computers will be able to support WPA encryption since not all wireless cards/adapters will be able to. if you're not sure, WEP is the encryption to use
Configuring WEP Encryption: 1. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you.
2. Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
Configuring WPA-PSK Encryption:
Select WPA2-PSK as your Authentication
Select AES as the Encryption Technique.
Enter a word or group of characters in the Password (PSK) box. The Pre-Shared Key must be 8 to 63 characters in length. Note: The PSK (Pre-Shared Key) is case sensitive ("A" is different than "a")
Click Apply changes to save the settings.
once you have enabled your wireless security, you need to reconnect your wireless computer to the wireless signal using your wireless password/network key.
hope this'll help you and just ask me if you'll have other concern
