Keyboard typing multiple letters/ numbers when pressing certain keys.

Keyboards on Windows computers can repeat letters when key press sensitivity is too high. This problem can be rectified by adjusting your keyboard's repeat frequency. Once this is lowered, key presses will occur slower and you will not have the letters repeated instantly.

Click"Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Hardware and Sound," followed by "Keyboard." Move the "Repeat delay" slider further to the left below the "Character repeat" option. The further left the slider moves, the longer the delay will be before a character repeats.

Keyboard strokes repeated on their own

Hi there.
You can go to the control panel and select keyboard from the list to adjust the keyboard settings, if this does not resolve your problem then chances are the keyboard is defective so take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and send it in for repair.
Don't try to remove or take apart the keyboard as doing that will void the warranty.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Secure network

- access your web user interface by typing http://my.router (or the default address on the address bar of your web browser
- click on Basic Settings
- click on Wireless Security
- click on the Enable Wireless Security checkbox
- select either WEP or WPA in the Network Authentication list (Note: make sure that your wireless computers can support wpa if you're planning to use wpa. wpa is more secured than wep)
if you're going to setup wep, follow the steps below:

- select hexadecimal or ASCII characters as the Key Format, you can use either as a string of hexadecimal digits (character 0 ~ 9 and A ~F ) or as ASCII characters (any key on the keyboard)
- then select your desired encryption level from the Key Length list. it could be either 40(64)-bit or 104(128)-bit key length.
- enter four different keys in the Key1, Key2, Key3, and Key4 fields to store on your router.for 40(64)-bit encryption, enter a 5-character (or 10 hexadecimal digits).for 104(128)-bit encryption, enter a 13-character (or 26 hexadecimal digits) WEP key (note: you'll just need to enter the characters that you've setup on Key1 for all the wireless computers that you have
- click NEXT, then Save and Restart to apply the changes

if you're planning to enable wpa, follow the steps below:

- enter your pre-shared key. this key must match the key that is used by each wireless client computer associated to your router.
- choose a key format. this can be hexadecimal digits (0-9, A-F) or ASCII characters (any key on the keyboard)
- WPA Group Rekey Interval specifies how often the key "rotates" or changes
- WPA Encryption allows you to select 1 of 2 possible encryption methods (TKIP and AES) - choose one that your wireless clients supports
- click NEXT, then Save and Restart to apply the changes

then connect your wireless computers to your wireless signal using the correct wireless security (network key)

hope this'll help you.
