If you know how to access the configuration page of your router, change your channel and check also your distance from the router itself.

You may simply have incompatibility issues, there now where near as problimatic as they used too but still exists. First off make sure that when you try to connect that you have the right security settings, (if used the disk from the router or had somebody install it you should have written it down). When configuring your router always do it with a hard wire connected so as you don't drop yourself every time you change a wireless setting.
Take your laptop to a free wifi hotspot as way to make sure that your wireless card actually works. But if you can see your network it sounds more like a security setting issue.

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 http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 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.

I cannot find my dlink network key to enable my laptop to the net


Your wireless network must be secured that is why you are now not able to connect to the wireless network. You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Do you have any computer connected to the router ?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router and open the set up page of the router. On this page you will find all the settings of the router. You will find the wireless network key also.

Our wireless net work comes up but we cant connect to it why?we have a wireless g wgr614v9 router and we cant log on to it with the passphrase


The Netgear router needs the wireless settings configured i.e SSID, WPA encryption etc and the wireless card in the laptop/computer needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings for the laptop/computer to connect with the Netgear wireless router. Pleas click on this link and follow my instructions to secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router's settings and configure the wireless card in the laptop/computer :-

Hi,
what is the wireless status in system tray? is it local or local and internet.
1. first check if it works fine with wire conection or not.
2.if it fine with cable then issue is with wireless. probably issue with Wireless security key.
3. go to available wireless networks and select the net work, if it is asking for wireless key please enter that. if you donot remember that perform router reset.that takes care of it.

This is almost impossible to explain in a message, but I can secure your network in a short time.

As far as the issue of being 30-40 ft apart from the router, this depends on the both the WRT160n and the Wireless NIC in the laptop. Some are better than others. The NIC in the Toshiba may not be all that great. I am not familiar with these.

Wireless connection works and then disconnects itself


look for a program on the web called Net Stumbler
It should be here http://www.stumbler.net/
That will show the signal level from your router.
I have seen this before and it could be several different problems
1. Someone else on your channel
2. Burned out ant or output section in the router
3. Broken Ant wire in laptop

Hope this helps
