Losing connection will have a lot to do with location of the router itself. Usually #1 cause of loss of connection is where it is located. There are ways to boost the signal output but most of them have to do with hacking the firmware of the router with Linux code. Something the average user isn't qualified, let alone ecstatic about doing. As far as the WEP key is considered that is merely accomplished by opening a web browser on your desktop that is connected to the router and typing in the ip address of the router, should be 192.168.2.1 and hitting 'Enter'. On the page that opens on the left side there is a link for 'Security', click that. At the top of the right side of the screen choose WPA-PSK(no server) this is the most secure. For Encryption Technique choose TKIP. Next there is a place to enter your Pre-shared Key (PSK) type in what ever you like, just make sure you can remember it. It's the password for the router.

Grace Digital Mondo Wifi radio - plugged in, found my wifi connection, but when I enter my WEP Key, it just cirlces back to :Enter WEP Key. No errors received, just doesn't recognize my WEP K


Hi
You say that the radio keeps demanding the WEP key for your WiFi connection. WEP is just one of several security types to be used for WiFi. The fact that the radio is asking for a WEP key indicates to me that your WiFi is more than likely set to one of the other security standards such as WPA, WPA2-PSK etc etc etc. If this is the case your laptop and kindle etc will be using the same security standard as your WiFi router. To find out which security standard is being used in Windows 7, on your laptop, click on the active connection in the system tray to bring up the list of available connections and then click on "Open Network and Sharing Centre". When the Network Centre page comes up double click on the "Wireless Connection".
A status box will come up and about half way down is a utton "Wireless Properties". Click on this, and in the box that comes up click on the security tab and it will tell you the security type, the encryption type and the wireless key (click on "Show characters").
If the encryption type is not WEP then the radio will not connect to your WiFi, and the radio settings for Security and encryption need to be set to the same as on the laptop for it to connect.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Wanna know how to secure my belkin wireless G router.


Setting the router's administrator password

All Belkin Router's ship without an admin password. If you require an admin password then follow the below instructions.

Setup steps:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.
  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on System Settings under Utilities on the left-hand side of the opened page.
    systemsettings.jpg
  6. You will see a feature called, "Administrator Password". Type in your current password (default leave blank).
    .adminpwd.jpg
  7. Click "Apply Changes". Your new password is now active.

Note: Do not forget the new password and keep it somewhere safe. If you forget your password, you'll be unable to access your router's settings. If you forget or lose your password, you'll need to "Perform a hardware reset on the router". This will reset the password to its default, as well as erase any and all other settings you may have changed

I set the router from wap security to wep and i cant connect to it now.


The WEP encryption key is in the router's wireless settings and changing this encryption will affect your wireless connection.
You must also configure the computer's wireless card settings with this WEP encryption otherwise the wireless router will not allow the computer to connect to the wireless router.
I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, this is a later and stronger encryption method than WEP encryption.

We cant connect our wii to the internet.. Error code 51330 keeps coming on please help


It appears that the security settings entered into the Wii console are not the same as what your wireless router is set to allow.
Make sure the security key and security type are entered into the Wii exactly as they appear in your router's settings.

Once you have entered the correct WEP or WPA key into your system, try the connection test again. If the problem persists, keep reading this page.
  • Security keys are case-sensitive.
  • WEP keys contain numbers 0 through 9, and only letters A through F.

Can not connect to internet thorough my dlink 614 router It tells me the internet security key is incorrect even though i know it is not


Hi,

Please access the web interface of the router and confirm the security key. Also, you can try to change the security key. It can be a possibility that your computer is not synchronizing properly with the current security settings.

If you find that you are putting the right security key then please change the security type to wep 64 bit or wep 128 bit and configure a new key. Also, change the SSID or the network name and try to connect.

In case of any issues please let me know which windows you are running and the security settings on the router.

Thanks,

Rashish

How do I set up my router so that my neighbors can not use my internet and keep them from down loading.


You must secure the wireless connection. All of this is done by accessing the router properties and go to "security" and make a WEP key. Once this is completed, your connection should show a padlock, Locked. If you have other PC's / laptops in the house you will need to put this WEP key in simply by trying to connect to your secured network. You will get a request box to type in the WEP key. Do so and that laptop will always be able to access your connection. You only do this once.

For instruction son this go to your routers website and download the manual for it.

HP laptop not recognizing Linksys Wireless B Security Key..


The WEP encryption is consist of 10 characters for 64 bit hex, 128 bit hex is 24 characters and WPA is 8 to 63 characters. So it seems that you have a vista computer? The compatible encryption for vista is WPA, sometime using WEP it is not working properly. So I might advise you to access the configuration of your router (192.168.1.1) and change the wireless settings of your router to WPA-Personal.
