What operating system are you using on the laptop?? Make sure you have selected 128-bit encryption rather than 64-bit encryption...if you have a choice.

Can't connect to a wireless network


You didn't post the Make , Model of Wireless Device. Try a reset ot the Wireless device returning it to default settings and reconfigure the SSID and the Security Key. Setup the Wireless for WPA2-PSK security it's a bit more secure.

I'm trying to connect wirelessly, but its asking for a sercurity key code! What is this and where do I find it? Help, pls!


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

I need a wep key


A WEP key is a Wireless Network security key that allows your devices to connect to the Wireless network. It is usually a 10 digit code (alpha numeric) that is set on your Network DSL router. If you turn your router upside down, you can find it printed with a barcode on a sticker attached to the router.

Linksys router, I do not know my own wep code to


1. Step 1
Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2. Step 2
Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3. Step 3
Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4. Step 4
Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5. Step 5
Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6. Step 6
Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

Got a new laptop and can not connect, I put in the router pin # and it won't read, keeps asking for web security code and I don't know what it is? How can I connect, this is my old laptop and it works just...


When filling in the security code, it is usually asking for a WEP key. This is usually found on the back of the router itself. They usually have a 10 character alpha-numeric code. If your computer is asking for 12 digits, enter two zeros infront of the code listed on the back of the router and try it again.

Hope this helps

How to connect my palm to my computer when I am using a reseault Linksys


hi. try this.

have the tx search for you network using the wifi button at the bottom of the screen.
select/highlight your network and click edit. note do not connect to it yet
click configure.
on the security, pull down the arrow and pick WEP (or WPA according to what your router has.) note that since you mentioned the 10 digit alphanumeric code i assume it is WEP
on the key type click on 40 bit hex
i usually leave the four keys unchecked. (unless you have 4 keys)
insert your alphanumeric key that you use to protect your network into the dotted line.
ok
ok
click yes to connect. enjoy.

if your pda has connected and you still cannot get your internet, please read below.

PS. some internet servers may require a new user to input a name and password as a safeguard. this is familiar when you try to log into a public wifi hotspot with your laptop and the web browser always redirects you to an agreement page.


if this is so, what i do is to run my internet browser. let it load the first page then i accept the agreement and i am in.

hope this works for you. please feel free to email me with any more questions.
enjoy
