You can try this.

Enter your user name and password, and then click on OK to display the user interface. You type admin for both username and password field. 4. Click the + sign next to Wireless 5. Click on Security - Now go on the network authentication set it to WPA-PSK 6. You will have a field where you can type your password - make sure its at least 8-63 characters 7. Then you click appy/save. Then you reconnect to your wireless network and this time you will be ask for a password.

simple, reset your router( a little reset button on the back of device, pinhole) and your wep/key will be removed and your wi-fi set to open and unsecure, then you just have to reset a pass/key to secure yourself again, hope i could help
check the connectivity again by assigning static IP Address to your DELL.. if problem occurs, clean install the drivers and dell Wifi software to your laptop.. Virus problem also results in this type of problem..
When you are home, you should hopefully have a secure wireless connection. When you are not home you willl need to change the access point so you can connect to a free wi-fi connection.
When you want to connect to a free wi-fi connection, do this:
Click Start, Settings, and choose Network Connections. Look at the possibilities for connection assuming your PC is within range and the wireless card picks up the signal. Choose from one of the connections - choose the fastest and best one you can find. NOTE that these connections are usually NOT secure and you should not share personal information or do any banking, credit card purchasing, etc on an unsecure connection. Chatting is ok, but still exercise caution....there are lots of bad guys out there who would love to meet you and steal your identity, banking information...or worse. Better safe than sorry.
When you get back home, you will have to change the connection type back again to your home network so you can re-connect there.
Try to configure you router with WPA authendication. provide some encryption password,if asked. Then configure your lifebook with manual ip by wifi adapter ->network settings-> tcp/ip properties - > specify manual IP something like 192.168.1.2 Now try connecting to your router.It should ask for network key and will connect if key provided matches with the one configured.
go to settings and wifi...look for your network and tap on it. Join your network and if it is secure it is asking for the WEP key which is on the label of the router. Enter that kep and it should join. if it is truely an unsecure wifi you should be able to get right on by joining it.
You may be seeing full signal but it may be your neighbors or next door
Physically connecting it to the router will allow internet access, but if you're trying to connect wirelessly and don't know the security key you can try logging onto the web interface from the connected computer and reset the key.
Changing the router password from admin to any password I think that you would be possible. Other brands of router has that option. And the router password won't affect the password for the wireless connection, they are different from each other. Wireless mac Filter is another way of securing your wireless network. Its done by listing the MAC Addrses (media Access control) or the physical address of your wireless adapter on your computer/s to either allow them to connect to the network or not to connect to the network. but I recommend to just use WPA security. It's secured and its much easier to add another wireless device to your network, because you just need to put the password and no need to get the MAC address and manually encode in on your router setup page. Its also possible to change the SSID or the name of your network.
I will get back to you with the steps on how to change the ssid adn change the router password. Okay?
