SOURCE: wireless connection won't work at home

Check your router is accepting backward compatible connections of 802.11b, as it may be set at 802.11g only especially if it's a 108 or 125mbps router as your laptop will only be 54mpbs and not see the router at all. Sometimes you have to dissable then re enable the wireless network adapter or refresh it for it to do a new search of networks.

reset the modem and the wireless router by powering them off for 30-60 seconds, then plug power back in. Wait a minute or so for the devices to reset then go to the PC and try to connect again

Good luck

SOURCE: Wont connect to belkin 54g with wpa security applied

Please try using Wireless 'G' mode only in the router. Also, try using 'TKIP' and not TKIP+AES for encryption.

Please rate this solution, if it works for you.

SOURCE: Dell laptop with wireless card unable to connect to network

The specs for the Dell Inspiron 6000 with the Intel PRO/Wireless card are list as 802.11b or 802.11g while the router you bought uses 802.11n.

Your best bet at this point would be to either return the linksys router and get an 802.11g model which is slower than 802.11n, but will be supported by your laptop. Or you can buy a 802.11n wireless adapter for your laptop to connect to your new router. Either way the rules of wireless are you need your device and router to be speaking the same wireless standard. So, pick 802.11n or 802.11g and stick with that standard for your gear.

Good luck!

How do u install security code

In Order to have more security for your Personal Network, You should put passwords for:
1. The Router.
2. The Connection. (which is called Network Key).

To add a password to the router, simply use the browser in order to enter the Router's settings page (usually 254)) and as usually also username:admin, pwd:admin .. :)

Now to set a key for ur network, do this:
  1. - Go to "Network Connections" (in control panel)
  2. - Right click on "Wireless Connection", and choose "Properties"
  3. - Go to the "Wireless Networks" tab.
  4. - You should see ur network at the "Preferred Networks" list..
  5. - Click on it, and choose "Properties"
  6. - This will open the "Networks Properties", now at the 1st tab "Association", at the "Network Authentication", choose one of these (WPA-PSK, or WPA2-PSK) they both are the same, the only difference is sometimes (some routers) uses only one of those algorithms, so u should use the one that matches Your router's algo...
  7. - Suppose that u choosed "WPA2-PSK", and the "Data Encryption" was AES..
  8. - now choose a "GOOD" key for the network...
  9. - confirm it...
  10. -Done
Thank You for Using Fixya.
Good luck.

Router set up on desktop but can't find the wireless network on my laptop

Did you check if your SSID is broadcasted? If not, you won't see it in "Available Networks".
Check your wireless settings on your laptop:
  1. Double-click the little wireless icon in the tray bar. (If you don't have the icon displayed, you have to go to start -> Control Panel -> Network Connections and Double-click your wireless connection there)
  2. Go to Properties
  3. Choose the tab Wireless Networks
  4. Double-click on your network from the list
  5. Make sure the box Connect even if this network is not broadcasting is checked.
  6. Click OK until all the windows are closed.
If you have any more questions or this did not fix the problem, just come back here and leave a comment. Then we look into your router. Let me know - I'm happy to help.

Hello, make sure that you have downloaded the latest drivers for the Belkin F5D7000 from the website... ( after you have done this you can try to reset the adapter.

If nothing else works you can try uninstalling any 3rd party belkin software that came with the unit and only use the drivers from the website and let windows controll the Access points.
