My pc wont connect to internet wirelessly


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How can I put password on my prolink-h6300g router


Open INTERNET EXPLORER and. (In the URL address field), enter the IP address for your wireless router ( the DEFAULT GATEWAY. This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.do not type "www" just the number
Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers you can try "ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for passsword.
You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.

When you try to connect via wireless, does it ask for your wep key? Also try and running wireless network connection utility in setting up wireless networks, I'm sure you have already done this, but, it doesn't hurt to try it again and see if there is anything you may have overlooked.

Ican find the wireless router from ny laptop but i cant connect to it


For clarification, what OS are you using? If you are using Windows 2000 or later, it should ask you for a WEP key and the SSID. Both of these numbers are available on the bottom of your router if it was provide by your ISP (such as with Verizon, Comcast or Time Warner).

Have a linksys wireless-n gigabit router and cannot get it to wireless for my laptop


Go into the admin of the router by typing into http://192.168.0.1 (If thats what the gateway is assigned). Use your user id and passsword and go to the wireless settings. If you notebook computer doesn't have a wireless N adaptor, set it for mixed signal. That way you can use it on g adaptors. If it tests fine, then setup your security and/or mac filtering.

My computer is asking for a WEP password. I do not know what it is.


if you mean that you are trying to connect to the net with your wireless connection, it will be the router that has WEP security in it and to connect to it you need to enter the WEP passkey to connect, this will be on the side of your router or with the paperwork from your ISP if the router is pre secured.
If it's not your connection, and you don't have a wireless router then you need to dissable your wireless network from searching for a local connection

I just bought a laptop and we recently got a DSL connection, I'm not sure how to connect my laptop wirelessly ( Do I need anything else?).


If you would like to connect wirelessly to your DSL connection you will need a wireless router if your modem is not a combination modem/wireless router (You can ask your ISP regarding this). You may go to
www.linksys.com and www.netgear.com so that you may look at routers that will suit your needs.

I got a linksys router and no disk and i got a wireless laptop and the lights when come on the router but no connection


Try a reset on the router.

You should also setup the router for wireless security as well. Therefore your the only one with the password to use your wireless connection. So no one near your place can steal and use your wireless Internet connection.

Also changing your SSID is a good idea.
