What is your router? do you know the gateway of your router?

1. Know what is your gateway by using a pc that is online hardwire to your router
> On that pc- check your gateway by doing ipconfig- your DG is your gateway
2. Then access the configuration page of your router- ex.
> Use your browser and type your gateway there.
> It will ask for username and password. You should know that.
3. When your inside your router's configuration page-look for wireless tab, then look for wireless security- you should be able to see there your wep key.
4. Finally type in that wep key on your toshiba laptop. It might ask you to confirm, so type it twice. =)

I need this driver to conect my laptop to internet

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Sir i have received wireless conection on my laptop but i can not access it because it demant the wep key or network key so please give me the solution as early as possible. Thanking you. Vishwajeet

You need to have the encryption key for the wireless network you're trying to connect to. If the router is yours, you can access it via the instructions given to you in the router's manual, and reset it there.
Otherwise, I would suggest you kindly ask your neighbors if they wouldn't mind sharing their Internet.

I never set up a password for this router but everytime i tried to conect to internet thru my laptop it asks me for a passowrd. is there anything like a universal password that i should use?

if its asking you for a wep key, you must go into the modems page and get it.

i think best way to find the modem page is goto start and in run type cmd, then type ipconfig, the default gate way is the adress to your modem page type this number with is some thing like into your internet explorer page, this should bring you to your modem. navagate through this untill you find wireless settings and in there you will see the wireless wep key. if it ask you for a password try admin and pass admin or admin with no pass, you can google what your password is to this modem if you have a problem. hope this helps,

you do all this on the computer that is conected.

My eee pc 900 series wont conect to internet

Your computer is asking for the WEP key which is the security key setup at installation so anyone who wants to enter your network must know the password. Check the simple things first, like your CAPs Lock key is off, Num Lock key is off, double check you are typing in the correct password. You can change the WEP key with the software that came with the wireless installation.
