I have DSL on my desk top would also like to put with my lap top how do I do


The simplest way would be to buy a wireless router from any electronics retailer. Follow the instructs included with the router for setting up the router. It's pretty straight forward.

I disabled my smc wireless through the ip address provided. When I went to reable it, the ip page won't load?? Help please


Hi,
You might be connecting through wireless before and now that you have disabled it, your computer is not connected to the router and that is why you are not able to display the setup page. You can use an Ethernet cable to connect your pc to the router. Once connected, try to load the router's setup page again through the provided ip address. If you are unsure about your router's ip address, check this out for guidance. click here.
Hope this helps.

I need to find my att dsl internet security key to sign on wireless my moden is a 2wire 2701hg


Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.
You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.aka security key

I want to put a password on the wireless connection


Access your router login page by entering 192.168.1.1 on the URL address bar, go to security and find PSPK code, that is a pre shared pass key, enter the password there and restart, now your wireless connection requires the password. Hope this will solve the problem

Securing wireless network connection


You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.
