I spent hours on the phone to get a new router and they helped me set up 2 of my computers and after having me erase the wireless connection on this computer they said I have to call westell for support to connect to our wirless setting.

Your computer operating system makes the network choice. If you're using windows, look in the lower right-hand corner and you should see signal-strength bars like on your cell phone. Click on those bars and you should see a list of available wireless networks. Click on the network for your uverse router and choose "Disconnect." Then click on the network for your hotspot and choose "Connect." Then your computer should connect to your hotspot.
Secure is not there to re-assure you, its telling you the network is password protected & you need the password to connect. The wireless key will appear on the staus screen of your router. Connect using a wire, goto the router status screen & write down the wireless key, try to re-connect wirelessly.
check if ur able to gonline with the cable connection. checked if the wireless key entered is correct
try to update the software
go to start-computer-right click-properties-devicemanager-network adapter- rightclick on the broadcom -update driver from the net with the cable connection and this will probably resolve the issue
I pulled out my Asus card, looked up the card model and downloaded the correct driver. Looks like the windows update or the Dell update must have caused the driver to get whacked. Hope this fixes your issue as well.
First you need to connect the wireless router to your desktop computer through an RJ45 Cable and setup a new wireless network. to do this you go to control panal you'll find (Wireless Network Setup icon) click on it and go through the process, when you get to "network key" select automatically assign a network key then select setup my network manually and next, then finish. once you do that, now you have a wireless network. connect the wireless usb dongle to the laptop and download necessary drivers for it once it shows on the little icons on the bottom right of the screen right click on it and it should have an option to enable the it. if not, then the dongle has the wrong driver installed or its faulty. once its enabled, go to my network places and choose wireless network and click search for wireless networks, you should find your Router's network, select it and click connect and that should be all.
let me know if you need more help and try to give me error messages and steps you did before, so i can help you. good luck !!!
hopefully you have'nt give the pc the same ip address as the other as it won't connect.
You will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your wireless network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.
Open up internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that never dial a connection is ticked or the option greyed out, close I.E. then open up again, click refresh and it should connect.
