Question about Linksys RangePlus WRT100 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Unable to log on to network with Apple Laptop

Have two desktop pc's, both of which are using Windows XP. They have no problem logging onto the wireless network. Granddaughter has a laptop that uses a Mac operating system. The laptop is courtesy of our local school which has a policy that states every Jr. High student will have use of a computer. She is unable to log on to the wireless network.

My questions is: Is the Mac operating system compatible with the Linksys RangePlus WRT100 wireless router?

The type of computer doesn't matter, as the protocols are the same. Check your router's dhcp settings, as you may have it set to allow too few IPs to be distributed.

How to connect to internet. what are the instructions... because my router have a signal but it cant connect to internet


1.Log into router. Using either 192.168.0.1 to 192.168.1.1 in a browser window that is ( internet Explorer or Firefox)
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off) ( router status window)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP addresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address. This set up in the "security tab" in the router. using 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to access through a browser.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop/Desktop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.
8. check for firmware update at the manufacturers site for your model router
9. cell phones, cordless phones, digital TV's, can affect the data signal from a router. Also distance from the router can be a factor. If your router is in a basement place the router to a upper floor and center it in the room.

Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network OS is XP SP2 N614


Here's how to connect to your wireless router if you are getting this message:

First, click on the wireless icon in your taskbar and under Related Tasks, choose Change advanced settings.

Now click on the Wireless Networks tab and select the network in the list at the bottom. Click on Properties once you select the wireless network that is having problems.

Click on the Authentication tab and now uncheck the Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network box. If the box is checked, then that is why you were getting the "unable to find a certificate to log you on to the network" message because Windows is looking for one, but your wireless router is not setup for certificate security.

And that's it! Once unchecking the box and try to reconnect to the wireless network, everything should work fine.


Hope this helps!

Unable to get laptop too connect wireless ..saying codes /password dont match


You should check the password which you have given for the router. Either you are typing it wrongly or you have forgotten the correct password. Try resetting your password and then try to connect your laptop via that router. Your problem will get solved

I don't have my network key, i want to connect my laptop to the desktop computer in the other room. how do i find that? i use windows XP. my desktop does not have a wireless local area connection option,...


First you need to create a administrator account on both computers. Make sure that you have ipx and spx protocols and both comptuer installs. Take you laptop back to your router and log into with the gateway address and go to the wireless tab. There you can create a network key, which is known as a password.

Try to reset the router using a paper clip, then try to re-log in to the router with the IP address, If you are still unable to log in , try log as admin as the username and password as admin or admin on the username and password is password.

Connecting to network


[QUOTE]The exact error message should be:
"Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you
on to the network [SSID]"
Google shows 37 hits with this exact phrase.
This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of
WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it
will work.[/quote]
