    What is the brand of your wireless router? If you don't know the network key we can check on the wireless router setup page.

What is the network key


reset the Netgear to default settings by pushing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds or so, release. Reconfigure SSID and Security. You may want to write down the Key for future use. This may help: http://support.netgear.com/product/WGR614v1

Hi i am trying to connect my wireless router to run my lap top however it is asking me for a pin number that should be on the bottom of the modem and i dont see a pin number?


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! I believe that when you're trying to connect wirelessly it's not asking for the network key or other users are able to connect to your network. Please follow the steps below for you to be able to make your connection secure.

1 Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."

2 Use "admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank or try to use " admin" as the password as well.

3 Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."

4 Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.

5 Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.

6 Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router

Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Trying to connect my mobile to my wirelesss Netgear,keeps asking for wep


You have set your wireless connection as Secured Wireless Network when you configured your wireless Modem/Router, so you need the "Network Keys" (ie the set password) to access to your wireless network. That is why your wireless cxonnection is asking for the "WEP KEYS" in order to connect to your Wireless Acess Point.

You can read your modem/router manual how to access to your router to see what password you have set.
or
Refer to the link, here

Hope it helps.

I cant go wireles,keeps askin for security code.dont know it


I beleive its asking for your WEP Security Code. You must know it else you can ask your ISP(Internet Service Provider). If that dosent work out try this:
Go to control panel network connections and on wireless connection search for wireless connection available. If you find you wireless connection over there the connect to it. See if it ask for a password or not.

I cannot connect my laptop to my thomson router because i dont know my security key password!! can you help me please??


When you view the available wireless networks and then click on your wireless network connection, it will asks for a network/security key if this wireless connection is an encryption protected wireless network. This key is the wireless encryption key that is configured in the wireless settings of your router. Please click on this link and follow my instruction to connect into your wireless network :-

Make sure that everything is set to automatic but no the wireless settings. You should browse for your own signal and connect to it. If it asked you for a network key, you should type in the exact network key from your wireless router

Can not connect netgear wireless to mini laptop


Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

Since your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

If you have wireless computers, you can connect them wireless to the router. Kindly follow the instructions below:

6. Connect wireless computer to the router.

If you are using Windows XP with Service Pack 1, please follow the steps below:

a. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer.
b. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
c. Click on the Advanced tab.
d. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
e. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Network. Please select your network and click on Connect. It will ask you for the network key.

How do i get my network key from a wireless dlink g604t router?


Hi servin,

Lets start off with the easy answer:

American Standard Code for Information Interchange = ascii
and its pretty much any character you can make with the keyboard

Now down to business. What the laptop is asking for is the wireless password.
If this is your router and you have never set a network key (a password) then chances are that it still has the default network key.
You can find this string of numbers on the router itself (usually on the bottom of the router near a upc symbol or the serial number) sometimes theres three or four numbers down there so just keep in mind that the minimum it can be is 10.

I hope this helps, if you cant get it just right there are more steps we can take to get you up and running feel freee to ask me, and please dont forget to rate me.

Unable to connect to wireless network


check your network IP and put one in the same classe of the wireless network. For example if you router IP is 10.0.0.254/255.0.0.0 then you must configure your IP like: 10.0.0.1/255.0.0.0 (instead of "1" you can choose a number between 1 and 253)

Wireless connection


My other half has this problem on his Acer laptop with Broadcom 802.11 wireless. This is how I have finally solved it.

1) Open Internet explorer
2) Type in your ISP address (tiscali is 192.168.1.1 so will be something similar to this for other ISP's)
3) This opened the ISP configuration screens and I opened 'SetUp'
4) I had to choose 'PPPoA'
5) I had to then enter the main username and password on the account
6) Set the connection to 'Always On'
7) Save Settings - this rebooted the internet connection (did not reboot the whole laptop) I closed the wired connection and disconnected the cable at this point.
8) Right click in your Wireless Icon on lower taskbar
9) If no wireless connection showing click to search
10) I then got a screen asking for the network key for the modem (mine is on the bottom of the modem but I keep it written down then I dont have to fiddle with the modem

Finally - Connect !

Hope this helps :-) By the way I got this info from ISP website by entering their 'Help' section, typing in 'Wireless' and clicking on the option that came up for my particular modem type.

Good Luck !
