You need a WEP key i'm guessing you're trying to say. go to a browser, type in the address bar and then login. the defult login name is either user or admin. the defulte password is either password or 12345. after logging in, find the menu that says wireless. from there you can either disable the WEP key, or write down the WEP key and type that into your laptop when it tries to connect. disabling the WEP key brings down your internet local security, but is not a problem is you don't live too close to anyone

No interent connection

Your Linksys wireless router needs to be connected to a DSL or cable modem which needs to configured with the settings that your Internet Service Provider gave you.
To test your Internet connection connect a LAN cable fron your conputer to the DSL/cable modem. If you cannot connect to the Internet using this methos, you need to contact your ISP and the can check the connection to your DSL/cable modem.

I have just bought anew laptop cant get onto internet it wants me to type in security key i dont know what this is can you help me please?

  • If your are trying to connect via wireless from your laptop to the Netgear router, most likely it's requiring you to input the wireless security key(usually it's WEP or WPA encryption).

  • Access the router's setup page by typing or in the address field of your browser(IE or Chrome). On the login use the default username and password(admin, password).

  • After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the Wireless Key. If the wireless security is set to WEP, use the available Key code but If it's WPA, what you need is the passphrase.

Type the Key or Passphrase on your wireless laptop and it should connect to the router.

How do i put the wireless internet on conputer

you will have to install a wireless driver if it is not already installed on the notebook. Then you must contact your ISP Internet Service Provider and tell them what you want. They will send you a wireless router you hook this up, and then your computer should automatically detect it.

I have a 2wire gateway modem/router and i need to reset it, but i dont have the default password located on the bottom of the modem/router because it fell off. I need to find out what the default password...

Open your Internet browser.
Type into the browser's address line.
You should see your key on the setup page.

Back-Up Key Codes

In most cases, you will receive a key code from your ISP. This key code is used to activate the 2Wire gateway. If you did not receive a key code, you can use the key codes provided in the following table.

If your Internet Service Provider did not provide you with

a user name, password, or IP address to set up your

Internet connection, your broadband connection most

likely uses DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)

and you should use this key code.


If your Internet Service Provider gave you a PPPoE

username and password to set up your Internet

connection, your broadband connection uses Point-to-

Point Protocol over Ethernet and you should use this key



If your Internet Service Provider assigned you an IP

address to set up your Internet connection, your

broadband connection uses static IP (Internet Protocol)

and you should use this key code.


If your Internet Service Provider gave you a PPPoA

username and password to set up your Internet

connection, your broadband connection uses Point-to-

Point Protocol over ATM. In this case, you would use this

key code and Microsoft Dial-up Networking to connect to

the Internet.

I cant get on my farm countrylife because it says the internet connection has timed out. how can i get it fixed.

Well if the internet connection says its time out it doesnt mean you have lost the connection it just means its been interupted by something else. What you should do is first look around your laptop and see if theres a wireless internet button it will have a picture of little bars above the button or on it. Once you locate the button press it and hold it for about 3 seconds then there should be an (x) over the picture of the internet connection symbol on your desktop at the bottom right i would asume then restart your computer and once you are back on your conputer press the internet connection button again. Once that is done go to the internet connection symbol on your laptop at the bottom of your screen on the right and click it and find your ip addres click on it. You may have to enter your internet key and if you dont know what it is it will be located on your router and if you do not have to enter the internet key it will connect to the internet manually and after that you should try clicking on the internet symbol and do a test run to see if it works and you should be good to go

Laptop says no internet connection

First you need to ensure proper connection and filtering. Make sure the source cable is plugged into the Linksys router first. Direct connections must be made to the router, meaning the cable to your main computer should come from the router, not the main source.

Next make sure that the connection is made. You should see a light on the router indicating proper internet connection. Once this is accomplished, connect your main computer and you should have access to the internet on it.

Now comes the easy but somewhat tricky part (tricky only because icons can vary a little). If you haven't already done so, run the setup disk for Linksys. It's has simple, easy-to-follow instructions to set up your network. Now for the laptop. On the blue bar at the bottom of the laptop screen there should be an icon indicating internet connection. Click on that icon to show available wireless networks. Most likely your Linksys router will show up as a secure network. When you click on that connection it will ask you for a WEP key. That key is usually a 10 digit alpha-numeric key written on the back of the router. Sometimes it's on the box the router came in. Sometimes it requests a 12 digit WEP key, in which case simply add two zeros to the front of that same key. If you set up a password for your wireless network you will need that as well.

NOTE: if you have neighbors close, you should always secure your network with a password.

You may need to shut down and restart the laptop in order for the changes to take place.

It sounds confusing, but once you start you'll find that it's actually fairly straight forward. I hope this helps. Good luck!

I get internal error- false


I found the problem with my non-networked Samsung ML-1610 laser printer.

I had it plugged into a 4 way (unpowered) v2.0 hub.

When I plugged it directly into a USB port on the computer the printing error disappeared.
