It would seem that your network is actually wireless. What you could do is double check the security key for your wireless network on your router or you could check the other 2 computers, if they are connected wirelessly, for the security key. Then use that security key on your new computer.

SOURCE: wireless secured network key code

Hi BabyDoll - to find your key, log in to your router. Enter 192.168.0.1 into your browser. If the defaults haven't been changed, the user is " admin" all small case without the quotes. There is no password. Just enter the user and leave the password blank. To get the key, click on the wireless button on the left. Then look down the page and you'll see the passcode fields. This is what you're looking for. Also take notice of what's above it such as WPA, WEP, etc. Write this info down. You can also go into your pcs that you use wireless on and put that key in and the kind of security (WPA, etc) so that it will not ask for it every time.
If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, DON'T RATE YET. Let me know what happened and I'll be happy to assist you further. If you need to know how to enter the info so that you won't have to enter it all the time let me know. I'll help you with that. Let me know what happens. Thanks.

Jeff

Can i connect new pc to old connection


You simply need to disconnect old computer from the network and connect the new one.
Are you trying to connect wired computer or wireless?

If you are trying to connect a wired computer then you don't need to do anything.
Just take out the Ethernet cable from the old computer and connect it to the new computer.

If you are connecting a wireless computer to the network then make sure that you have all the settings of your wireless router.
If your wireless network is secured then you should know the correct network key.
What is the operating system on your computer?

I will suggest you a website " The Router Setup " which may help you connect your new computer to the old wireless network.

Identifying network


I think you can try to upgrade the router firmware as well as update drivers of the wireless adapter on your computer.

How many computers do you have in the network?
How many are wireless?
Are you facing the same problem on all the wireless computers?
If this is the problem on all the wireless computers then you can try creating a new wireless network and then connect to the new wireless network.

I cannot find my WEP key on Router N with Belkin.


You changed the network key.
Make sure that you will connect your computer to the router with the cable to change the wireless settings of the router.
Do not change the wireless settings of the router using the wireless computer.
open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings.
Change the name of the wireless network also.
create a new network and try to connect to the new wireless network.]
I think you did not change the name of the network and your computer might be trying to connect to the same old network name with the old settings.

Adding a wired computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you are adding a desktop or any other device to the router which will always be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable, then in this case you don't need to do anything.
You can just connect the Ethernet cable between the router and the computer and it should work.
If you are not able to go online even when it is connected properly then check IP address of the computer.

Adding a wireless computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

Computer says that a network cable is disconnected


This could either be the router or the computers network card. Both can be blown by lightening strikes / storms. If you have a laptop or another computer try connecting this, or asking a friend to try there laptop - this will tell you if it is the router or the network card.
Either way - a new router is £10 and a new network card is also about £10 off eBay.
