Re: cannot connect to internet
At most that I can gather from your post/description is that somehow the security setting has been enabled in your router. This would prevent access to the Internet by any PC tied to your network that do not use the said encryption (security) key.
Perhaps the best or the simplest would be to do a hard/full reset of your router. This way all will revert to default factory settings and the WEP, WPA, MAC security will be disabled. There usually is a recessed small reset button at the rear or bottom of most routers for this purpose.
Should this be not corrective, pls post back with information on modem brand/model and what PC(s) (desktops or laptops) and your ISP.
Hope that this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Hello. Wireless security strength depends on the mode of encryption you are going to use (WEP, WPA-PSK [TKIP], WPA2-PSK [AES], WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]). WPA-PSK should be enough to secure your Wireless network. ASCII - Choose from any key available on the keyboardHexadecimal - Characters ( 0~9 and A~F)
Before setting up wireless security on the router, make sure the computer you are going to use to setup wireless security is directly connected to the router using an Ethernet cable(wired).
To setup wireless security on the router, access
the router user by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the
address field of your browser and then press Enter.
Enteradminfor the router user name
and your password (or the default,password).
Choose Wireless Settings from the Menu on the left.
Select WPA-PSK under Security Options. Input the Passphrase.
Passphrase can be 8~63 Hexadecimal characters or 8~63 ASCII characters. Take note of the passphrase then click Apply. Hope this helps. Have a nice day.
to configure the netgear router. . . .1, first make sure that your laptop is connected directly to the netgear router via ethernet cable.2. after securing step 1, on your computer, open browser, ( internet explorer or firefox )3. go to the address bar, the one with the http:\\ and erase everything inside it.4. type in there, 192.168.1.1 or www.routerlogin.net.5. username is " admin "password is " password "6. you would see netgear set up wizard. 7. for wireless configuration, click wireless settings on the left side of the set up wizard.8. you can edit network name, and get your network security key under security options. make sure to choose WPA PSK TKIP. so that you can have a personalize network key9. the network security key is the " passphrase "then click apply.then your all set for wireless connectivity.
change the wireless security settings options in router
WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]try this link it might help http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/connectwireless.html
Open the router page 192.168.1.1 >> type this in the internet explorer address bar. 1. the Home Page is displayed. Click Wireless from the left menu 8. Changing the Wireless Security Settings
Your Router is equipped with the latest security standard called Wi-Fi
Protected Access 2 (WPA2). It also supports the legacy security
standard called Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). By default, wireless
security is disabled. To enable security, you will need to determine
which standard you want to use.
To access the security settings, click Security.
The Router features WPA2, which is the second generation of the
WPA-based 802.11i standard. It offers a higher level of wireless
security by combining advanced network authentication and stronger
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption methods. 2.
You can configure wireless security/encrytion settings here. Select
WPA-PSK (no server) from Security Mode drop-down menu. The new page
will display on next screen 3.Setting WPA Security
Note: To use WPA security, your wireless network cards must be equipped
with software that supports WPA. At the time this User Manual was
published, a security patch from Microsoft is available for free
download. This patch works only with Windows XP.
Your Router supports WPA-PSK (no server). WPA-PSK uses what is known as
a pre-shared key as the security key. A pre-shared key is basically a
password that is between eight and 39 characters long. It can be a
combination of letters, numbers, or characters. Each client uses the
same key to access the network. Typically this is the mode that will be
used in a home environment.
1. From the Security Mode drop-down menu, select WPA-PSK (no server).
2. For Encryption Technique, select TKIP or AES. This setting will have to be identical on the clients that you set up.
3. Enter your pre-shared key. This can be from eight to 39 characters
and can be letters, numbers, or symbols. This same key must be used on
all of the clients that you set up.
is the PC connection you're able to maintain once upgraded to WPA a PC that is physically connected to the router? if so, that would make sense because WPA (and WEP for that matter) are only wireless security protocols and have no protections for hard-wired connections.
In order to convert your system to WPA security, you must first make sure all of your hardware is WPA compatible (that isWPA Drivers are available for it).
For your PC wireless connection, if you're running Windows XP you can go to the microsoft website and download the WPA client. It is available in the Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 815485. install the update and reboot. you will then be able to enable WPA security on your client.
Then you'll possibly need to update the drivers for your hardware for WPA support (router, wireless NIC, etc) if they did not already come enabled.
next you get to configure the router for WPA. you'll want to make sure you're set to WPA with preshared keys (no authentication server required), use TKIP as the algorhythm, and leave group key renewal at it's default value. and of course Select a key that is not likely to be guessed. write the key down as you'll need to configure your NIC using it.
to configure your NIC, once you're in the configuration menu select WPA-PSK for your authentication, TKIP for the encryption mode, in data encryption set it to TKIP, and in the network key put the key you selected earlier.
At this point you should be able to access your wireless router (or other access point). These instructions were kind of generic since i do not have the specific router you're using available to me, but the settings i discussed should be pretty universal when it comes to WPA security.
First, go to ur Router Configuration Page. There are 2 pg into related WireLess Configuration Settings. So u find ur problem into the WPA security configuration is under the wlan Security section, and then you select WPA PSK (Pre Shared Key) and TKIP encryption for Lan security. As well as changing the WPA Mode to enabled, u will need to enter a WPA Pre-Shared Key. So u found, which is a Network key and why to need.
