Hi dear

try this

  1. Before you attempt to use any Wi-Fi network, find out what the SSID, Channel, Mode and WEP key are. Some Wi-Fi locations do not require a WEP key. Many Wi-Fi providers have this information on their web site or when you purchase access you will be provided the information.
  2. Ensure you have a firewall program installed and running. This will protect your data.
  3. Start up your laptop and once booted, look for the Wi-Fi network icon in the bottom right of the screen.
  4. Click on the Wifi Connection icon on bottom right of screen and you should see a window that indicates connection, strength and duration. Click on the Properties tab.

  5. Wireless connection stumble. - wirelessnetworkscreenbl.jpg

  6. The next window will show the type of networking card installed. Click on the Wireless Networks tab.

  7. 02ee437.jpg

  8. Once the Wireless Network Connection Properties window is open you will have two options depending on how you set up your laptop.
    • If you do not see any networks listed in Preferred or Available networks, you will have to manually add the SSID. Click on Add. You will have to enter the SSID and WEP key (if required). Click OK and you should then see the network you just added in the Available networks box.

    • If you see the correct SSID showing in the Available Networks, then you need to click on Configure in order to enter the WEP key if thaWireless connection stumble. - 92752af.jpgred.

  9. In the next window, enter the SSID for the Wi-Fi network you want to access. Make sure you do not have CAPS lock or NUM lock while entering the information. If a network key is required, click on "Data Encryption and then enter the Network key you have been provided with. Again make sure you do not have CAPS or NUM lock on. Click OK when entered. If you have entered the key incorrectly a message Wireless connection stumble. - fccfda9.jpg and you will need to re-enter the key.

  10. fccfda9.jpg

  11. Next go to Start - and where it says Connect To click on that and you should see choices like in tWireless connection stumble. - 34b0a7b.jpgbelow. Click on Wireless Network Connection and it should work.

34b0a7b.jpg

There are occasions when the connection doesn't work, in these cases check your firewall software and make sure it allows you to connect to the Wi-Fi network. To check this, disable your firewall software and check the connection again. If you can connect with the firewall program disabled, you change your settings. If your firewall program is not the problem check the SSID and WEP key information that you entered. Both of these are case sensitive. If you had obtained SSID information from the Internet, check with someone in the establishment to see if the SSID has been changed.

oke post in me back

i hope this usefull for you


thanks

I cant view my Local area connection and wireless connection in network connection.. how can i fixed this problem..but i am connectd in LAN connection


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

My wife's son recently purchased an epc minibook computer. For the life of me I have been unable to get this machine to connect to the wireless modem we recently had installed in our home. The signal...


Some facts are needed here...

1. Does the Netbook connect to any other network without issue? Like McDonalds, Starbucks, Local Library, friends house, etc. If not then the problem is netbook related. If you can connect elsewhere, then the problem is with your wireless device or configuration.

2. Assuming you are running Windows 7... Does the wireless modem/router you are using at home have any known issues supporting Windows 7 or Vista? Look this up online with the device manufacturer.

3. Does the modem/router have the latest firmware installed? again look this up online with the manufacturer or get assistance from your service provider if under warranty.

4. Is the router configured for WEP or for WPA type wireless security? If it is configured for WEP wireless security, this can and often does affect connectivity for some devices. Always use WPA type wireless if possible. The ONLY reason to use WEP would be to support some old wireless device that does NOT support WPA. WPA is faster and more configurable and more secure.

5. Did the netbook EVER connect successfully via wireless on this network? If it did, then try deleting the wireless profile on the netbook for this connection and try reconnecting again. If it still does not work, but you can connect elsewhere without issue, then you definitely have a wireless security issue.

6. Try temporarily disabling the wireless security and connecting without security. If it still will not connect, then replace the modem/router.

Good Luck

Am i able to connect to the internet using WLAN without te security keys (WEP)


If the wireless network that you are trying to connect, is unsecured then you can connect without the WEP key.
but if the wireless network is secured then you will need the KEY or the password for the wireless network. Without the key you won't be able to connect to the secured wireless network.
If you have the router then you can check the wireless settings of the router and find the wireless network key.

CONNECTED TO WIRELESS MODEN BUT LOCAL ONLY


This can happen for a couple of reasons. 1. The wireless card is not working correctly either because of driver issue or it is on it's way out. 2. The security key is not being accepted.

Try resetting the router by pushing the reset button in back of the router when it is powered up. Then try connecting without any security settings. Sometimes the security settings cause problems if you use any other settings besides the WEP 64.

How do you get your web key code for this because i need the connection for my xbox


It is a 'WEP' ("Wired Equivalent Protocol") key, not a 'WEB' key.

Use a network-cable to connect any computer to your router.

Click: Start -> Run
Enter 'run', and press ENTER.
Enter 'ipconfig /all'.
Look for:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
....
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.xxx.yyy

Into your web-browser, enter: http://192.168.xxx.yyy
to "login" to the web-interface on your router.

There should a "wireless configuration wizard",
when you can set/view the WEP key.
Or, maybe, select 'WIRELESS' and then 'STATUS' buttons to view it.

Can't connect to my router anymore (WEP encrypted).


Hi deray953,

First we need to remove the previous profile in your wireless network. I believe you know the SSID for wireless connection using WEP security. You can check this by going to;

Using Windows XP SP2/3
1. "Control Panel" > Switch control panel to classic view ( look at the upper left side ). > Double click "Network Connections" > Right click "Wireless Network Connections" > choose "Properties"> Click the Tab "Wireless Networks" ( middle tab) > go to the list of profiles and remove the Wireless name or SSID for your home connections. > click OK and Close the properties of wireless.

To reconnect again, you need to know your WEP key or network key for wireless connections if not, you can do this procedure...

1.Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".
d. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
e. take note of the KEY 1 ...that is your WEP key..take note of it.

Connecting Through Wireless Zero Configuration (Windows XP SP1 and SP2)

2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then, click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

go to WIRELESS properties

make sure everything setup correctly
(WEP password, ANY channel, etc.)

does it connect to any other wireless networks?

we had one eeepc with the same problem, and
we fixed it by doing a complete restore.

NOTE: use the icon that says NETWORK, not the one that
says WIRELESS NETWORKS. the first one is for
home and work, the wireless network option is for
use in cafes, etc.

I'm having problems getting my 2nd computer hooked up on my wrt54g router. please help


Try it wired first, if doesn't work its your basic configuration if it does try removing WEP and running unsecured. If you can connect focus on your WEP settings, if you can't connect focus on the antennae, hardware, and radio settings. If you connect without WEP and can't connect with, use the 64bit hex key it generates instead of your pass phrase. Many wireless cards have trouble using the passphrase.

Limited or no connectivity


make sure wireless switch on laptop is on. since you are using XP, type services.msc on the run box, on the services local page go to wireless zero configuration, check if it has started automatically. then go to your wireless area connection, r. click then view available wireless networks. you shall see your 2wire network as 2wirexxx, where xxx stands for the last 3 nos. of your modem's serial no. connect to that network, it will ask you to enter the wireless key or passphrase. now type in the default wep key, that is the 10-digit nos. at the bottom of your 2wire modem right below the sn 7 it is enclosed in brackets. if you still has limited or no connectivity, check the modem if it is set to use default wep-open encryption. it is done by going to homeportal/management, type your system password, it will lead you to the management & diagnostic console page (mdc), click on wireless under local network. pls check if wep encryption is set to open and it is selected to use default encryption. you can also change the wireless channels & power settings, then click on submit. now try to connect.
Note: you can do the mdc on the desktop.
