Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a new Belkin Surf n300 (F7D2301 v1), it functions fine with wireless connection to Windows Vista and XP PC's, using WPS and WPA-Personal security; however, I am unable to connect via wireless using a Dell D620 with Umbuntu 10.04. It functions fine if I use the Ethernet connection, but will not connect wireless UNLESS I disable security and put the router in an "open" state, which I don't want to do. Any suggestions?

If you dial back the security to WEP, does it connect?

Back to WPA though... when editing the Network Connections... Check SSID is correct. Mode "Infrastructure". IPv4 Settings is Automatic (DHCP). IPv6 Settings method is Ignore. Wireless Security is WPA & WPA2 Personal and the password is correct.

Belkin F5D7234-4 v1 (important thing)


In Belkin f5d7234-4 v1(only version 1) router, do not disable "WiFi protected setup" learn more about wps
  • If you do so, then the router will no longer work in 90% of cases.
  • The WiFi protected setup is enabled by default in this model.
  • The computers using XP,vista,win7 may not connect to the wireless network. 96cff88.jpg
Solution:
In that case you can add the wireless network manually in the computer.Still if it says error message as "windows cannot connect",then follow these steps according to your operating system.
