A dell inspiron 6400 with windows vista will not allow the d-link to connect. It asks for a security code


Welcome to Fixya.

If you need you Security Key (Network Key) 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 admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings and under Security Mode you'll find the Network Key or Passphrase. You can alsoThen Personalize you Network Key or Passphrase so that you can easily remember it.

Don't Forget to say Thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I lock access to my DIR-615 router

Go into the routers configuration pages and turn on wireless security.
Use your browser and type into the address bar. Type in admin for the logon and admin for the password and the routers options will be displayed. When you turn on wireless security, you will need to enter a code key. Write down the code key as you will need to enter this key into every computer that you wish to use your network.
Then save and reboot the modem.
Thats it.
Enter the code on the computers accessing the network and they should be fine too.
The code key should be kept in a secure location, stuck up on your desk is NOT a secure location.
This will prevent any computer that does not have your code key from accessing your network.

How can I secure my wireless connection?

By using a WEP key, please find your manual below, download it, and go to SECURITY, it shows one step by step how to set your WAP/WEP "KEY" Once set, you are secure. As to logon to the WiFi network, you need the special "KEY" to do so.

I have just gone on to wireless and its asking for my security key? Where will i find out what my security key is????

Hi, your security key, is the Key, that was generated in the router when you were setting up the router for first use. First, you put in your user name & password, then you go to security settings and set your WEP/WAP Key, this is the security code that must be used to logon to that network from the WiFi.
Now if you either have an unsecured network, or an unknown WEP/WAP key, what you have to do is, Login to the Router with a browser, and get through to the security settings, and Generate a Key, now when you generate the key, copy/paste this Number to a notepad document, save it somewhere handy, say desktop. Now finish off with the router, save all the settings and reboot the router, now you are ready to logon to your wireless network, now startup the PC, and find the SSID, The name you gave your WiFi connection, now when you select, you will be asked for the WEP/WAP Key, open the notepad document and copy/paste that number you saved into the place provided, there, now you have your security set and be able to logon to your WiFi & router.
It is all also explained in your user manual, i have included a copy below.

When i try to connect my lap top to the wireless router it asj for a username password and logon domain

I think the operating system on your computer is Windows VISTA. You network must be secured. Make sure that you have all the wireless settings of the router. if you don't know the wireless settings of the router then you will need to open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings .
You are getting the message about user name and password and domain name.
In this case you will need to add the wireless network manually.

I want to secure my Belkin 'n' wireless router . I am running Windos XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS Snow Leopard. How can I do this?

connect any one of the computers to the router with a ethernet cable. open internet explorer, clear out the address bar on the top, and type when u hit enter, u'll get a router set up utility. in this page u'll have an option -security- below "wireless". when u click security, it'll ask for a password, leave it blank and hit submit. on the next window, choose the option WPA/WP2, then u'll have some more options, look for PASSWORD(PSK).. put in a password which should be 8 to 63 characters long, its case sensitive. click on apply changes.

Where is the pin number located on the linksys router

are you trying to connect to the wireless network on Windows VISTA ot Windows 7 computer ?
When you try to connect to the wireless network on VISTA / 7 computer then it will ask you for the PIN number. on the same window at the bottom you will find the option " I don't want to configure, I want to enter the key manually " OR " I don't know the PIN I just want to connect ". You will find this option at the bottom in very small letters. If you click on it, it will go to next step. on the next step you it will ask you for the security key if the network is secured.
If you don't know the key then you will need to access the router set up page.

Accessing through a new computer

Is the new laptop xp? or vista?

for these two pc, you can use the built in utility of windows dor wireless conenction. There you will only be asked one information. The wep key/ security key/ passcode/ (they both mean the same anyway) this is available in the User interface of the router . This is sometimes called the set up page, that if you access this will give you all the wireless settings. the best person to contact is your router manufacturer. That is this is still under warranty for free tech support.
