    you most likely have the num lock on, which will convert those keys to numbers from the letters..check the upper range of your keyboard

Have you tried another hard drive incase your current one is damaged/corrupt. You may also have a faulty system board which you could try and pick up cheap online. But try another Hard Drive First.

Cant connect laptop to router


The passphrase can be seen on the router's Admin page or its usually called router's Setup Page. You can open the router's setup page using your Internet Explorer. First you must your default gateway address. Connect your computer wired to the router or you can use a computer that is hardwired to the router to check the Default Gateway by going to Command Prompt then type IPCONFIG. If you see the Default Gateway, that's the address that you need to type on your Internet Explorer like http://192.168.1.1. If you have the router's setup page opened, you can see the passphrase on Wireless tab or Wireles Security Mode

Wireless not picking up


Some laptops have a small round button on the front or a Function F3 key which acts a toggle, even though the drivers are installed, like this Evesham Latop.

Check to see if there is a light flashing some don't have this light (note its not the HDD spinning light)

This button is separate to the drivers they can be working fine, it like a tap and if you close it no signal can be sent to the router. And hence no connection to the internet.

You also need to make sure that the windows own service WZCSVC is stopped if you are using the NIC own software to input your WEP key for secure connection

Disable the service here using this tweak it can cause you problems.

I have a Dell laptop connected via Wifi to Livebox and Internet works OK. I have bought another Dell laptop with Wifi for my son, but while his computer recognises the livebox, he can't access the...


Hello,
In command prompt (with admin privleges)
Try to ping a domain name. For example:

ping youtube.com

Does it list an IP address? Do you get reply's? If you get replys then the internet on your son's laptop should be working. Try and make sure there are no proxies setup. Its a brand new laptop so there shouldn't be but check anyways.

In Internet Explorer goto tools, internet options, connections tab, lan settings button. Make sure the box use a proxy server for your LAN is unchecked.

If you don't get an ip address or reply's it would most likely signify that your DNS settings are incorrect. Verify the correct DNS settings by typing in 'ipconfig /all' in command prompt. It will show what your DNS ip address is set to. Make sure the settings are the same on the other laptop.

If they mismatch then you may have some settings incorrect in your wireless router, or the laptop itself, or both.

The ideal solution in that case is to resolve the dns issue on the wireless router, but for a quick solution, you can set the router to be the DNS host on the laptop. The process for doing so is OS specific. A quick google search should lead in the right direction.

If further problems persist, it may be a problem with the OS itself, or the hosts file.

Good Luck

WPA is safer as all in all it's a lot harder to crack due to being a lot more characters in the passkey. The easiest thing to do would be explain how i have mine set up. And you could compare the 2.. As i have XP Desktop & Vista aswell. So your Laptop connects ok now but is still an unsecure network.. On your Dektop. When you try to connect. Are you entering the 26 character key on the bottom of the livebox?

The main thing to realise with the Livebox is everything is reversible.. And to not worry about changing something..

So let's get this started, When you open up the " Connect To A Network " you can see your Livebox-XXXX. Next to that does it say "Unsecured Connection"? If this is the case then your Livebox is still not properly configured.. What i would recommend doing is starting a fresh with the Livebox, and i explain how to set it all up from Default. icon_smile.gif

IF you don't remember your internet login details then go to "Configuration.adsl" and click My Services then Internet. Your info will be in there. Hopefully you remember your password.. icon_smile.gif

If you don't know how to do a reset of your liveox. Press and hold the "1" button on the back of your livebox. Unplug it from the mains whilst still holding the "1" for 10 seconds. Then plug it back in. [ still holding the "1" ] The lights will flash a bit and after a minute or two it will go back to normal.

Go back to "configuration.adsl"
Username: Admin
Password: Password

If i start from the top section and work down it should make it easier to follow:
My Services>Internet>Connection Parameters Filled In..
Phone Over ADSL> Nothing needs changing
Digital TV> Nothing Needs Changing.
Liveprinter> Nothing Needs Changing.
Submit

Security> Associated Devices> Will Be Empty
Firewall> Medium
Wireless Connection> Channel Number> 11
Security Key(WPA-TKIP)> Same As What's On Bottom Of Livebox.
Enable Wireless Lan> Ticked.
Submit

Configuration> Update> v5.10.7-uk
Administrator> Change the password while you're there..
Submit

Advanced> Wireless> Pairing Time> 10 minutes should be fine.
Your Livebox name can be left as it is.
WPA Security Only
Wi-Fi Easy Pairing.. Might aswell leave it on..
Submit

Now if we set up your laptop first.
Go into Connect To A Network. Your Livebox should be there. It also SHOULD say Secured Network. If there is a Red Cross then you will need to do what i suggested yesterday on my previous post.

Go back to connect.. Enter the 26 char. passkey with caps lock on.. And you should be connected no problem.

Now for the Desktop.

when you log on.. In the taskbar in the bottom right should be something to do with wireless networks. Double click this.. If it mentions something about using the software that came with the device.. Then use the software.. If not then windowsXP will show your network. Double click it.. Enter the same 26 character code.. And you SHOULD be connected.

Let me know if that works.. Sorry for the really long post, but detail is something i do quite well... icon_smile.gif
