Check your router if the mac address filtering is enabled.

use an ethernet cable and connect it directly to your laptop

open cmd and type ipconfig

look for default gateway and type the numbers in the address bar of your browser (normally it looks like this 192.168.1.1)

once you have the routers page enter the username and password if you have one

check if the SSID or wireless name is the same and the passkey is correct and check if the mac filtering is enabled..disabled it and check if you can connect or get an ip address

How do i find a key for my linksys router?


Try the following procedure on a computer that's directly connected to one of the router ports with an ethernet cable. This procedure will not work if you're connected wirelessly. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the Wireless tab and then the Wireless Security sub-tab. You should be able to see your present wireless network security key on this screen. You can also use this screen to change the key if you want.

If you want to make some changes first select the security mode you want to use.
I believe WPA gives better security but I've had some trouble using it on older computers. I use WEP. I've been able to get this encryption scheme to work with all of my computers. Next select the type of encryption. I like 128 bit 26 hex digits. Next enter a pass phrase and hit generate. The pass phrase is like a password. It should now generate four 26 character keys made up of various letters and numbers. Write down the first key and make sure you've checked the 1 box for default transmit key. Save your setting and exit. You wireless network is now secure. If you try to connect to it using a wireless device you will be prompted for a security key. Depending on the operating system you're running, you may just be able to enter the pass phrase or you may need to enter the 26 character key you wrote down. You should only have to do this once for each of your wireless devices. After the first time they connect to the secured network they should automatically remember the security code. I hope this advice helps you out.

Your iPAd should see your wireless network like other devices do. Does your iPad not prompt you to connect to your home network? If it does you should enter your wireless pass key manually on your iPad.

Please note that any changes you make will affect other devices that connect wirelessly to your router.

I am trying to connect a wireless ready Samsung blueray player to my Motorola Surfboad and it says to press the wps button on the surfboad, where is it?


NOTE: [] & "button(s)" represent features on the remote controller. {} & "key(s)" represent features in on-screen menus.
=======================================================================

ROUTER INFO: WPS is on the SBG901.


BLU-RAY DISK PLAYER: You did not mention the model # of the Samsung Blu-ray disc player, so this information is somewhat generalized.

PREREQUISITE: Once you have attached Samsung's proprietary wireless adapter to that Blu-ray player, have connected that Blu-ray player to your TV, & have powered on that router & Blu-ray player & TV, access that Blu-ray player's initial settings menu.

STEP ONE: From the Home menu, press ?? buttons to select "Settings." Press [ENTER].
STEP TWO: Press ?? buttons to select "Network." Press [ENTER].
STEP THREE: Press ?? buttons to select "Network Settings." Press [ENTER].
STEP FOUR: Press ?? buttons to select "Network Type." Press [ENTER].
STEP FIVE: Instead of using the the "PBC (WPS)" selection, press ?? buttons to choose the "Wireless" selection & press [ENTER].
STEP SIX: Press ?? buttons to select "Internet Protocol Setup." Press [ENTER].
STEP SEVEN: Press ?? buttons to select "Auto" or "Manual." Press [ENTER].

IF SETTING UP WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY VIA AUTO NETWORK SEARCH: If you selected "Auto," press the ? button to go to "Access Point Selection." Press [ENTER]. Upon searching for available wireless networks, it will display those choices in a list.
A.) In the list of networks, press ?? buttons to select your network. Press [ENTER].
B.) IF "PIN/Security" DOES NOT POP UP, THEN SKIP THIS STEP; otherwise, press ?? buttons to select PIN or Security (Security Key--the usual option), & enter your network's Pass Phrase on the Security screen. (This Pass Phrase would be what you would use to access the network. IT SHOULD NOT THE PASSWORD WITH WHICH YOU SET UP YOUR ROUTER!)
Press number buttons on the remote to enter Pass Phrase numbers OR use arrow buttons on the remote to move from key to key in the Security Key screen. Change the type of on-screen accessible characters by moving to the on-screen {a/A/1/?} key & pressing [ENTER] on the remote. (The character set changes with each press of [ENTER]. Once displayed on the screen, you can enter a letter by pressing the number button on the remote which corresponds to that letter key. Pressing that button repeatedly changes the letter. You can move to {Delete} & press [ENTER] in order to remove the last character entered. You can move to {Clear} & press [ENTER] to clear all entered characters (or just press the red [(A)] button. When done, press the yellow [(C)} button (or the {Done} key followed by [ENTER]).
C.) WAIT UNTIL THE CONNECTION CONFIRMATION MESSAGE DISPLAYS & THEN PRESS [ENTER]. You're back at the Network Selection menu.
D.) To test the connection, press ? to select "Network Test." Press [ENTER].

IF YOU REQUIRE ASSISTANCE WITH SETTING UP THE WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION MANUALLY, I SUGGEST THAT YOU READ THE MANUAL (http://www.samsung.com/us/support/).

Trying to get playstation 3 network


Well, your issue is a little vague, but I'm assuming you're trying to connect to your network. If that's the case here is how you do it wirelessly:

From the main menu:

Settings>>>Network Settings>>>Internet Connection Settings

Select "Yes" when prompted

Choose "Easy", then "Wireless", then "Scan"

Select your network and your security type, then enter your security key when prompted

Check your settings, and press "X". If the first 3 pass, you should be connected to your network.

If they fail, double-check you've entered the proper information, especially your security key

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

I can't find the pin-code located on the router to make a pass


Are you trying to connect to the wireless network on the windows VISTA / 7 computer?
Sometimes it will ask you for PIN number. you don't need to enter the PIN number.
On the same page you will get the option, I don't want to configure, i want to enter the key.
click on it and it will go to the next step. if you network is secured then it will ask you for the network key.
Enter the key and it will connect you to the network.
If you are trying to add any other wireless device in the network then try to bypass this step and connect to the network manually.

On my D-Link Dir-825 Wireless Router, can I change my wireless networks name without having to go around reconnecting all the computers in my house afterwards


If your network is "unsecure", which means no pass keys will be provided by client computer when they connect, then you can do it. Just change your SSID from your router's admin interface and your connecting computers will recognize it as a new network and try to negotiate connection. If there is a passkey, then the connecting computers will be prompted for a pass key (though it is an old pass key) since they recognize it as a new network.

Windows 7 Network Security Key Mismatch


The Key is Case sensitive. That is c is not the same as C. Before you enter the key activate your caps lock as most routers automatically translate letters to capital letters for some reason. It sounds as though the key is being entered incorrectly.
