You're going to want to navigate to the router's configuration page. The easiest way to find this, if you are running Windows, is to click the Start button, click "Run", and type in "cmd".

You'll see a black window. Once in there, type in "ipconfig". Look at the bottom line, it should read "Default Gateway". Write this down, and then open up your Internet Browser.

Type in the number sequence - it should take you to your router's configuration page, and from there you should be able to set up a WEP key for your network. It should be under "security" or a similar heading.

If you have further questions, come back and post!

Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

or
Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

I will be happy to assist you with this problem.
There should be a small reset on the back of the router. As seen in the picture below.jameshumanit.gif
First, you will need to push this button using a paper clip or a small screwdriver etc. Keep the button pressed for about 15 seconds. This will return your router back to it's like new settings. It will take approximately 1 minute for your router to reset.
Once the router has been reset. You can access the setup information via your web browser by plugging the router into one of your network ports and typing this into your address bar http://192.168.2.1
If you have any further questions, please ask, I will be happy to elaborate.

Find pass key for our lap top for the family network.


Log into your router's web interface, if possible through a computer connected to the router by cable, by starting an internet browser and navigatng to its maintenance IP address, usually set by many manufacturers to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. An authentication request will come up. As you haven't speciffied your router model, there are routers whose both user name and password fields are set to 'admin'. Other routers use 'admin' as user name only, requiring the password field to be left empty. Once you get into the router's web interface, go to the wireless settings, and change the wireless passphrase to a new one of your choice. Make sure to change the other devices, which use to connect to the router, to the same new passphrase.
If you need further details, please, provide your router model and manufacturer.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Regards, Carlos

How to configure wireless internet connection in windows xp


You need to set up the router first and know the name of the router: Also called The SSID.

Example: FIXYA'S ROUTER is a name for a router written by the router's owner and not the manufacturer. NEVER leave the default name (example: lynksys, Netgear, etc) because then everyone would get into your private wirless connection.

Once you set up the secuirty and name (SSID), turn on your laptop.

1) open contol panel and open NETWORK CONNECTIONS
2) right click on the wireless network connection icon
3) using the drop down menu from right clicking, click on PROPERTIES

A window called WIRELSS NTWORK CONNECTION PROPBERTIES will come oup

4) On the top Tabs ( labeled "General, Wireless Networks, and Advance) click on WIRELESS NETWORKS.
5) CLICK on the big button called VIEW WIRELESS NETWORKS

A new window will come up called WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION

A list of other wireless routers should show up under the words CHOOSE A WIRELESS NETWORK

6) Rememeber the name you typed out for your router in the begining? LOOK AND CLICK ON the name you gave your router (eg: Fixya Router)

If you set a pasword or Wep key for connecting to your router type it in after you click and press ok. If you ddnt set a password or wep key, just click on the nam o router and click ok

You should then see if you could get on the web by opening your intenet explorer. If you followed the instructions well, you will be able to get on the internet.

PLEASE SAVE YOUR SSID (OR ROUTER NAME ) AND PASWORD OR WEP KEY IN A SAFE BUT OBTAINABLE PLACE.

Hope this helps :)

I need my network key so i can use my new laptop


I'm assuming this is a wireless network key that you need? If so, ask the person who manages the wireless router.

If you own the router, you'll have to connect to it with a cable the first time 'round, and set your laptop's IP to something on the same subnet, like 192.168.1.1, or ..2.1. Enter the router's ip in your browser.

Once you've established a link using a cable, finding out the present key, or resetting it, should be as simple as browsing the web page served by the router.

Trying to get Net Gear 'Range Max' router to see my PS3 and new Medion PC. All hardware has been checked out and is fine and can see my home network but router cannot see the 2 devices, my guess is the...


It's the other way around - your PS3 and PC need to be configured to "see" your router. That is, your router's settings, specifically the SSID, channel #, and security options, need to be set correctly in the PS3 and PC.

First, I am going to assume that you are running a Windows-based operating system, and my ideas are going to be specifically oriented towards Windows XP. If you use Windows 2000 or Vista, the operations I describe will be slightly different, so ifyou're not real familiar with those operating systems, let me know andI can send you revised instructions.

If your router isbroadcasting its SSID (it's unique ID), which is an option in mostrouters, then your laptop should be capable of detecting it. You shouldhave an icon on your desktop named "My Network Places". Right-click onit and select PROPERTIES. A dialog box should pop-up that shows yournetwork connections. If your wireless connection is installed correctly, you should see i, possibly with a red "X"through it, which is OK. Right-click on it and select VIEW AVAILABLE WIRELESS NETWORKS.

Another dialog box should pop-up that will list all of the available wireless networksin your vicinity. You should be able to see your router in this listand it will likely have a name associated with the router'smanufacturer (e.g. USR, Netgear, Linksys, etc.). It should also be thenetwork that has the strongest signal since you are close to it. Youshould now be able to select it and then click on the CONNECT button.

Whetherthe connection process is completed successfully, you will see anotification of this. But before you do anything, bring up Internet Explorer and see if you can reach a website like www.cnn.com.

Hope this helps.

HOW TO RENAME MY BELKIN ROUTER


Using the WEB BASED INTERFACE.
Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based
Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “192.168.2.1” (do
not type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”) then press the
“Enter” key.
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window.
Clicking on the header of the “Wireless” tab will take you to the
“Wireless” header page. From this page, the Router’s wireless radio
can be enabled or disabled (the default setting is enabled). Under the
“Wireless” tab, there are links that allow you to make changes to the
wireless network settings.

Changing the Wireless Network Name (SSID)
To identify your wireless network, a name called the SSID (Service
Set Identifier) is used. The default SSID of the Router is “belkin54g”.
You can change this to anything you want to or you can leave it
unchanged. If there are other wireless networks operating in your
area, you will want to make sure that your SSID is unique (does not match that of another wireless network in the area). To change the SSID, type in the SSID that you want to use in the “SSID” field (1) and click “Apply Changes”
(2). The change is immediate. If you make a change to the SSID, your wireless-equipped computers may also need to be reconfigured to connect to your new network name. Refer to the documentation of your wireless network adapter for information on making this change.

I have a wireless g broadband router i am connected on the main computer but my wireless computer says connected but i cant go to any web pages


Is the problem that "nothing coming from the modem to the router"
if the router has more than one Lan port try the cable from the modem to the router, in the first lan port or the last port.

if its a wireless problem,ensure wireless router function is turned on ,and the adapter is enabled on the pc ,

if you set up a security key in the router ensure that it is put into the other pc wireless setting.(but try setting up without any security keys) when succesfull you can ad the security measures.


sometimes you need to turn on the modem first then turn the router on after a little while to sort the ip address out before trying to connect the other pc, in the first instance.

hope this is of help

please rate my efforts as this is our reward

good luck
