Hiya, first thing you should check is that your wireless card/usb on your laptop actually supports WPA. I changed to WPA and 3 out of 5 of my laptops could not log on. Took me an age to find out what was wrong. Try changing back to WEP on both units. If they can both log on then see if you can try to borrow a wireless card that you know supports WPA, change back to WPA settings and see if new card works. Don't even assume that new cards/usb's are all WPA compatible. Friends was bought in Nov and isn't able to run WPA.

I cant find wifi connection


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Thinkpad having limited to no connectivity


More than likely your password is wrong or the Authentication Type such as WEP, WPA, WPA-2 is wrong.

For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window open click the Wireless Networks tab. Click on the SSID for your wireless network that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You can change the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless router and you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have it in correctly.

For Windows Vista below:

Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left of the open window and click Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left and select Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

Wireless driver not working


Does it show you the options screen where you can change it? If it shows you WEP or any of the other security options, but not WPA2 then your adapter is not equipped to handle WPA2. Some older adapters were made before WPA2 came about.

If you get to your Wireless Connection under Network settings and Right Click on it and Select Properties.

When the Properties window opens click the Wireless Networks tab and select your network by highlighting it. Once you network ssid is highlighted click Properties. Click the Association tab and look down at the Network Authentication drop down window. You can see all the available types that your adapter can handle such as WPA, WPA-PSK, etc. If WPA2-PSK is not in there, your adapter can't handle it.

How to make a wireless connection to an xbox with a panoosnic Panosoic wireless Lan adaptor N5HBZ0000055


Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead.

Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

I cant view my Local area connection and wireless connection in network connection.. how can i fixed this problem..but i am connectd in LAN connection


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I dont know how to connect to the internet


Hello,
1.Install your wireless network adapter in Windows XP with SP2. This process includes installing the proper drivers for your wireless network adapter so it appears as a wireless connection in Network Connections.

2.When the computer is within range of the wireless AP operating in your home or small business, Windows XP should detect it and prompt you with a Wireless networks detected message in the notification area of your taskbar.

3. Click the notification message. If you are not notified, right-click the wireless network adapter in Network Connections and click View Available Wireless Networks. In either case, you should see a dialog box with the name of the wireless connection.

4 Double-click your wireless network name. Windows XP will attempt to connect to your wireless network.

5.Because Windows XP has not been configured with the WEP encryption key for your wireless network, the connection attempt will fail and Windows XP will prompt you with a Wireless Network Connection dialog box. Type the WEP key in Network key and Confirm network key, and then click Connect.

6.If the status message for your wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box is Connected, you are done. If the status message for your wireless network in the Wireless Network Connection dialog box is Authentication did not succeed, click Change the order of preferred networks in the list of Related tasks. From the Wireless Networks tab of properties of your wireless network adapter, click the name of your wireless network in Preferred networks, and then click Properties.

7.In Network Authentication, click Open. In Data encryption, click WEP. In Network key and Confirm network key, type the WEP encryption key as configured on the wireless AP.

8.In Key index, select the key index corresponding to the encryption key memory position as configured on the wireless AP.

9.Click OK to save changes to the wireless network.

7. Choose wireless connection

8. Click "search for an access points"

9. Click OK

10. Choose the from the connections your Wii has found (Look for your connection. You might have to provide some sort of password)

Wireless connection


You will need to speak to the person in charge of the security enabled network, and obtain the type of wireless security (WEP or WPA) and the password.

You should also determine what security types are supported by your own laptop's wireless connection. If it is an older one, it may only support WEP, and you will be unable to connect to any WPA protected networks.
