All of a sudden, I can't connect to the internet. My network connection is asking for a security key. I have never had to do that before & I have no idea what it is. Please help.

Someone nearby may have created a new wifi network, and your computer is trying to gain access to it. The first thing to do is to verify that you are indeed trying to connect to your own wifi network by checking the SSID of the network. Or, you can physically move closer to your wifi router and see if you can then connect as expected.

If you're still having trouble after that - you'll need to access your router's setup pages via a computer that has a network cable connected between it and one of the LAN ports on the router. Login as usual with your username & password credentials and then change the SSID, encryption and the username & password information. If you are unable to login, then it is very possible that the person(s) that took over your wifi have also attempted to lock you out of it. You'll have to consult your router's manual to learn how to perform a hardware based factory reset. Once this has been done, you'll need to set up your variables for your network again. Make sure you secure the wifi to prevent unauthorized access again. This mean using WPA instead of the comparably very weak WEP security AND then locking down access to the setup page with a new username and password.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

My Atheros AR5007 will only complete a "Local Connection, No Internet Connection" to a NetGear N600 Dual Band Router when Security Options (WPA2-PSK (AES)...ect) are selected on the Wireless...

Since the connection works without the encryption settings, it is NOT a driver issue. It sounds like a missing wireless network security setup problem. So assuming Windows (Mac OSX is similiar):

  1. Connect a laptop/PC to the NetGear via ethernet. It saves on some aggravations later.
  2. Connect to the NetGear and restore the security settings, and remember your keyword.
  3. On your computer, open the list of Wireless Networks (usually Start->Control Panel->Network(ing)->Wireless Networks). The menu sequence might differ slightly, depending on which Windows you're running.
  4. Find and click on "Manage Wireless Networks" (or words to that effect)
  5. Right click on your wireless network's name to get the drop down menu, and select "Properties"
  6. Find a button or tab related to "Security"
  7. Under Security Type, select WPA2-PSK (or Personal)
  8. Under Encryption Type, select "AES"
  9. Under Password (or Security Key), type in your router's WiFi security key word. You may have to log back into the NetGear and find the keyword (yours) or the alternate (gibberish) form.
  10. Save the settings
  11. If you're connected to that wireless network, then disconnect
  12. Try connecting to the wireless network again. It should work this time.

If you have a WEP key or something, get on your computer and download this, then run it. It will tell you the key of all networks in range.

I forgot my user name and password, how can change this, i have internet now but it is unsecured

Hi deltaplus000,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to setup a password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security on the Dropdown next to Security Mode select either WEP or WPA. Then Personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure. Then Save the settings

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.
