More than likely it is not the key but either the encryption or the security type. Make absolutely sure that you are choosing the right type of security (WPA, WPA2, WEP) and the right type of security algorythm (TKIP or AES). Also note that versions of Windows earlier than Vista do not correctly handle WPA2. If that is the type of connection try to change it to WPA. WEP is weak and easily cracked.

What does error code 51330 mean?


The password or key for your wireless router that was entered is incorrect.
Make sure the password or key is entered into the Wii exactly as it appears in your router's settings. Keep in mind that security keys are case sensitive. A simple typo may be causing the problem.

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

"limited connectivity" message


If it's limited or no connectivity, you might have typed the wireless network key incorrectly. It's case sensitive. If you don't have wireless security enabled, you can simply delete the preferred networks on your wireless connection window then disable any firewall you have like windows firewall, norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. Also try to change the channel on your router to 11 and that will solve your issue. Restart the computer after that.

to do this ...
1. click on start menu , type cmd , enter
2. COMMAND PROMPT dialogue box opens .
3. type . IPCONFIG
3. note your Default gateway.
4. open internet explorer
5. type your default gateway in browser address
6. it will prompt you to give user ID and password .
7 Your USER ID and password is ADMIN .
8. your router setup page opens .
9 change your local IP address to 192.168.3.1 .
10. Check mark on BRIDGING MODE .
11. Disable and enable your ethernet .
12 . now try connecting to INTERNET .


It should work . .

Cannot get wireless connection through router


Hi MistiShay,

You did mention that it was working fine for several weeks suddenly your wireless computers stopped functioning and your getting a message that the security key in incorrect. This only means that its either your entering the wrong encryption key or someone changed the previous security key to something else. By the way what type of wireless security did you configured on the router initially was it WEP or WPA, if its WEP(64 or 128 bit) and your using a bulit-in wireless adapter on your laptop you need the default WEP key because the passphrase only works with a Netgear WLAN Utility.

Know if your having difficulties accessing the setup page of the router you may need to check on your browser settings, turn off the pop up blocker and firewall temporarily, also try another computer. Now if all fails you may need to press that reset button on your router and set it up again.

Wireless router help


Are you trying to connect the game console wirelessly? If you are, you have to make sure the wireless connection on your router is activated. Pull up the interface of the router by typing its default gateway on the address bar of a browser. Default gateway of the device(router) can be obtained by typing ipconfig in the command prompt.
Once the interface of the router is pullep up, check on its wireless settings. Make sure it is enabled. Enabling your wireless settings will enable you to name your wireless connection too. I suggest you secure your wireless connection so your connection will be solely used by you, and ofcourse, for your protection as well. There are a lot of security encyption types you can make use of. I suggest you make use of wep and make sure you are using 64 bit. 64 bit enables you to create 5 text or 10 hexadecimal digits as the wireless security password. 13 text and 26 hexadecimal digits for 128 bit, and 29 text and 58 hexadecimal digits for 256 bit wep key.
With regards to connecting the ps3 or any game console online wirelessly, follow these simple steps:
1. Select NETWORK SETTINGS under setting in the HOME MENU
2. select WIRELESS
3. select SCAN
4. select an access point
** An SSID is an identification name assigned to access points. This is the same wireless name you have configured on the router.
5. select the SSID or the wireless connection you have created
6. select the security method (WEP)
7. type the wep key you have created
8. select EASY on the menu
9. save your settings.
10. test your connection. The system will now attempt to connect you to the internet
11. Confirm the connection test results. If a successful connection has been established, information on the network will be displayed.
If you need assistance for the wired set-up, just tell me so I can provide you with the steps. Goodluck!
