You are tying to set up the router .
It is very easy !
first make sure that your main computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the modem, without the router.
Once you are able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working. you can set up the router manually.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

I can't connect wlan security incorrect.


Sorry to said but you have to use the correct WLan password. If you don't know this password you have to connect at the router's settings page using an ethernet connection, locate the Wi-Fi (or Wlan) section and at the security section find the requested password.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer. Also clarify me the brand/model for your router.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

We're adding another coputer to the system at our house. How do we set up wireless on this computer. We already have wireless on the original computer. Do we need certain numbers to set this up? I'm...


You must have a wireless adapter installed in your new PC. Assuming there is already one, then you need to identify what type of security you use with your wireless router.
If you don;t have any security installed, then you can just search for wireless access points and then you should be able to connect to your router. The danger with not having security is others can also easily connect to your router and network and possibly hacked to your systems and also eat up on your internet bandwidth.
The easiest security is to have a password installed before you can access the router. When you search for wireless, you just choose your wireless and then you must know the password so you can access it. You can save the password so don't have to do it everytime you connect. There's still a possibility though that someone can hacked your password, but not likely in a regular environment.

Another option is to register the MAC address of all of your PC in the router so only your own PCs can connect. This is a little bit more technical though so you may want to hire a tech for this.

We keep losing connection to internet when playing xbox 360 live. will be playing and screen freezes up for 15 to30 seconds then kicks us from xbox live.have a router with 3 xboxs hooked up.its unsecured...


If it's unsecured, there is a possibility that other people nearby are logging on to your internet connection through your open router. The more connections through the router, the slower it becomes. And the Xbox will drop is the connection becomes too slow.

As for a better answer as to why your losing your connection, try relocating the router. Often moving it higher up will allow a better signal. Other times a wall or shelf which contain metal objects is the cause. The signal weakens as it passes through construction materials, and nearby metal objects will definitely cause signal degradation. Try moving the router, sometimes only a foot or two is sufficient.

You should definitely learn the process to secure your router. It's like connecting your computer with a network cable to all of your neighbors computers and inviting them to see what you have stored on your machine. If their computer savvy, they can even watch what your doing in real time and even activate your camera and microphone! (It's been known to happen).

Securing the router involves the use of a network key (think of this as a password). Most modern routers have the default password printed on the body of the router. Using a special program installed when you installed the router, you can access the router and set the password. For example I use a Netgear router and the program that it installs is called "Netgear Genie". You access the router through the program using the routers user name and password (default as shipped is usually "admin" for both. Then set up the router to use security. After this all of your devices you authorize to connect to this router will also need to use the same Network Key (password). It's actually an easy process. For example, after you set the security, the labtop will attempt to connect and finding the system secured, ask you to enter the "network key" or password, to allow it to connect. It should ask you to remember this password so it can connect without assistance in the future

If your still uncertain, try running the router's setup program again. Most are designed to walk you through the process quickly. Just remember that all your devices will need to use the same password, the one that is printed on the side or bottom of the router. Usually it's something silly like "wonderfulwater456879" or whatever. Good luck and be more careful with your data in the future.

Ok. Firstly you must open up a web browser (Internet Explorer). Then in the address bar....type 192.168.1.1
A message box should pop up asking for a password. Leave the username blank and type admin for the password. That will allow you to change all settings on your router. You must then look for a security tab. In there look for security encryption. WPA/WEP2 either should work. Follow the instructions onscreen to set a password on the router end. Then on your computer you must open your network connection by clicking on the monitor with green waves coming out of it, in the bottom right corner of your taskbar. Then click View Available Wireless networks. Double click your network....type password when prompted....and VIOLA secured :)
