The wireless network security settings on laptop do not match settings on router?


Hello.
- This error occurs when the wireless security that you set on the wireless laptop does not match the wireless security on the router.
  • If the wireless router's security setting is WPA but on the laptop you used WEP for the wireless security, that's when a mismatch occurs.

- What you can do to resolve the problem is to delete the wireless profile you created on the laptop. After that, let the laptop search for wireless connection available, select the correct wireless settings and it should connect.
--For example the operating system of your computer is Vista, in order to remove the wireless profile you created and reconnect to the wireless router, do the following instructions:- Go to Start>Control Panel>Network and Internet> Network and Sharing Center- Click on Manage Wireless Networks on the left panel. Delete the wireless profile then Search for available wireless networks again. Type the correct wireless security settings on your laptop
-- If you would like to know what wireless security has been setup on the router, connect the laptop or use a desktop which is wired to the router then access the router setup page 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).

--After logging in. In the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the wireless security or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.

How to use dual band on router?


You can only use it in the 2.4 ghz mode or the 5 ghz mode:

1. Log in to the Router by going to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com

and entering the default user name admin and default password password, or using whatever

LAN address and password you have set up.

2. Select Wireless Settings under Setup in the main menu to display the Wireless Settings

screen.

3. Select the region in which the wireless interface will operate.

4. Set up the 2.4 GHz wireless network:

a. Enter the SSID name. The default is NETGEAR.

b. Select the operating channel for the wireless mode. The default is Auto. When Auto is

selected, the router finds the best operating channel available.

If you notice interference from nearby devices, you can select a different channel.

Channels 1, 6, and 11 will not interfere with each other.

c. Leave the wireless mode set to the default setting of Up to 145Mbps for 2.4GHz.

5. Select security options for the 2.4GHz wireless network.

The wireless Security Options are set to None by default. NETGEAR strongly recommends

that you use wireless security. You can select a different Security Option and a different

passphrase for each wireless network. For the highest performance of the 2.4GHz wireless

network and the most secure encryption, NETGEAR recommends that you use WPA2-PSK as

your security option.

6. Set up the 5GHz wireless network:

a. Enter the SSID name. The default is NETGEAR-5G.

b. Select the operating channel for the wireless mode. The default channel is 36. If there is an

Auto option in the channel list and you select it, the router will find the best operating

channel available.

If you notice interference from nearby devices, you can select a different channel.

c. Leave the wireless mode set to the default setting of Up to 300Mbps for 5GHz.

7. Select security options for the 5 GHz wireless network.

The wireless Security Options are set to None by default. NETGEAR strongly recommends

that you use wireless security. You can select a different Security Option and a different

passphrase for each wireless network. For the highest performance of the 5 GHz wireless

network and the most secure encryption, NETGEAR recommends that you use WPA2-PSK asyour security option.
8. Click Apply to save your changes.

Wnr84b wireless settings security options only has 2 options


mostly u will be getting more security options oly with the high-end wireless devices. apart from the default security options, u can secure ur wireless network by many ways. turn off dhcp server in ur wireless router or access point. so it avoids unauthorized users from accessing the network. instead u may give a static private ip address for each and every wireless users for getting wireless access

Brought a new laptop with wireless installed have a philips SNB5600 but have lost the security key how can i get the code


go to the wireless access point admin settings (not on your wireless adapter on your laptop). then check wireless security settings. if you see something there such as security key, that is the security key that you need to set up on your laptop. if security key is not visible, try to see if there is an option there which says unmask to show the security key, then copy it to your laptop. if all else fails, change the security key in the wireless access point and change all the wireless adapters that connect to it accordingly to the new security key you set it up.

Dell TrueMobile 1150 won't connect to secured wireless acct.


well! some wireless adapter`s are not capable of connecting to higher security so that`s why for that it`s recommended you use WEP security instead of WPA.

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Security


Go to the router's web interface (192.168.1.1), in the wireless section go to Wireless Security. Enable WEP, you will create a WEP key for your wireless network, then that key will be asked to any wireless device that tries to use your wireless network.
