Hi,

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.

Good luck and kind regards.

How do you write an ASCII network encryption key?


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.
  • Enter admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).

  • Choose Wireless Settings from the Menu on the left.
11_25_2011_5_52_11_am.jpg
  • 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.

Have internet on desk top pc, but netgear wireless router will not connect IP is 192.168.1.1,but do not know how to configure router


Once you connect the router, attach a CAT-5 cable between the router and your computer. Once this is done, go to http://192.168.1.1 and log in to your router. The login info is also in the manual. After logging in, fo to the Wireless section; set your network's name (SSID) then your security. I prefer the WPA-PSK[TKIP] for its simplicity. The rest of the router settings are pretty much automatic and not messed with usually. Feel free to ask if you have more questions.

We do not have a secure connection to our wireless rotor


You could change and configure your router through its web interface. To access it, use http://192.168.1.1 on Internet Explorer, and enter 'admin' for the password.
  • Go to Wireless LAN Security tab.
  • Select WPA-PSK on Network Authentication.
  • Enter a password that you want for your wireless network on WPA Pre-Shared Key (minimum characters is 8).
  • Set Data Encryption to TKIP.
  • Apply settings.
You should now reconnect your wireless computers to your network and enter the WPA Pre-Shared Key.

How to make a secure connection.So far i have an open connection. My router is Belkin_G_Plus Mimo


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.
Setting WPA-PSK
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.

Security connectivity issues


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.
