Do a HARD reset on the router by pushing the RECESSED reset button for 30 seconds. Do not confuse the Red 'EZ Setup' button with the RECESSED reset button.
This restores the router to factory defaults which includes the default SSID and password. The WiFi password is reset to none.
Now setup the router according to your manual and write the SSID and password down and paste it to the bottom of the router.
If this fixes your problem, 4 thumbs would be appreciated.

ASUS rtn10 wirelles preoblem


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 used to configure the Wireless 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 that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address

I have an eee 701 and I always had trouble connecting to any wireless internet. In some routers works fine, and in others does not connect. I had linux and change it to XP and the problem remains. Is there...


The problem your experiencing is all about the settings of your wireless connection. You need to keep in mind that there are factors that affects the wireless connectivity like Physical Barries and Network Security. for physical barries example of these are wall, cordless phones, central heating device, Thread mills and othe devices using 2.4GHz signal for network security you need to know if the network is secured, we have WEP, WPA.WPA2 and Open or no security.

Make sure you know the settings of your router then connect your laptop to it. if it ask you the netwrok key or password access the wireless settings page of your router and look for the network key and make sure that your connecting to your router or network name (SSID).


Thanks for using Fixya.

How to set up a password on ASUS RT-G32 wireless router so others cannot access my internet services.


Open a browser. Type in the router IP 192.168.1.1. Login to the router using your user id and password. If you have never set up a user id or password, then use the factory default ones to access. Once into the router settings, change the admin password to avoid anyone later accessing the router and changing your settings. Once you save the admin password change, you will be kicked out and must login again with the new password. Once in, go to wireless settings. Here you will able to set a wireless password (security key) for your wireless LAN. Once you save and exit, you will need to go to all your wireless devices and modify them with the security key in order for them to access the network. Once the key is in the router, your network is secure from outsiders getting in without knowing the key.

My Dell lattitude D830 won't connect with linksys


Right-click the wireless icon with red X and click on View Available wireless networks. Highlight the name of your wireless network and click Connect. If it asks you for the network key, type in the secuirty key of the router and press connect. That should do it. If you don't know the wireless security key of the router, you can see it by accessing the router's Setup Page through http://192.168.1.1 on your browser. It's under wireless tab then wireless security sub tab

Linksys wireless card with ASUS WL520g Router - encryption error


you have changed the network key, but why update the username and password as it should always be the same which is the one supplied to you to connect to your service providers connection, assuming you mean the security key, go to your pc and search for your network again, as it will be trying to connect to a non existant unsecured router. When it searches and finds the networks in your area, choose yours click connect and the enter password window should pop up to be entered. Go to your browser and clear old temp files and cookies in tools, internet options, restart pc and you should assuming you have put the correct settings in be online.
