WPA is safer as all in all it's a lot harder to crack due to being a lot more characters in the passkey. The easiest thing to do would be explain how i have mine set up. And you could compare the 2.. As i have XP Desktop & Vista aswell. So your Laptop connects ok now but is still an unsecure network.. On your Dektop. When you try to connect. Are you entering the 26 character key on the bottom of the livebox?

The main thing to realise with the Livebox is everything is reversible.. And to not worry about changing something..

So let's get this started, When you open up the " Connect To A Network " you can see your Livebox-XXXX. Next to that does it say "Unsecured Connection"? If this is the case then your Livebox is still not properly configured.. What i would recommend doing is starting a fresh with the Livebox, and i explain how to set it all up from Default. belkin wireless adapter g usb - icon_smile.gif

IF you don't remember your internet login details then go to "Configuration.adsl" and click My Services then Internet. Your info will be in there. Hopefully you remember your password.. icon_smile.gif

If you don't know how to do a reset of your liveox. Press and hold the "1" button on the back of your livebox. Unplug it from the mains whilst still holding the "1" for 10 seconds. Then plug it back in. [ still holding the "1" ] The lights will flash a bit and after a minute or two it will go back to normal.

Go back to "configuration.adsl"
Username: Admin
Password: Password

If i start from the top section and work down it should make it easier to follow:
My Services>Internet>Connection Parameters Filled In..
Phone Over ADSL> Nothing needs changing
Digital TV> Nothing Needs Changing.
Liveprinter> Nothing Needs Changing.
Submit

Security> Associated Devices> Will Be Empty
Firewall> Medium
Wireless Connection> Channel Number> 11
Security Key(WPA-TKIP)> Same As What's On Bottom Of Livebox.
Enable Wireless Lan> Ticked.
Submit

Configuration> Update> v5.10.7-uk
Administrator> Change the password while you're there..
Submit

Advanced> Wireless> Pairing Time> 10 minutes should be fine.
Your Livebox name can be left as it is.
WPA Security Only
Wi-Fi Easy Pairing.. Might aswell leave it on..
Submit

Now if we set up your laptop first.
Go into Connect To A Network. Your Livebox should be there. It also SHOULD say Secured Network. If there is a Red Cross then you will need to do what i suggested yesterday on my previous post.

Go back to connect.. Enter the 26 char. passkey with caps lock on.. And you should be connected no problem.

Now for the Desktop.

when you log on.. In the taskbar in the bottom right should be something to do with wireless networks. Double click this.. If it mentions something about using the software that came with the device.. Then use the software.. If not then windowsXP will show your network. Double click it.. Enter the same 26 character code.. And you SHOULD be connected.

Let me know if that works.. Sorry for the really long post, but detail is something i do quite well...

Got my password


Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Setting up security for the wireless netword


All of the settings and information will be available on the manual, which can also be found here:
http://cache-www.belkin.com/support/dl/p74880-d_f5d9230-4_manual.pdf

You can login to the router by going to the address: http://192.168.2.1

If you are going to be using wireless connections, you should try enabling WPA. Or if you are not going to be using wireless connections, it's best to lock the network itself. Once again, you can find much more valuable information in the manual.

Bellkin G+ Mimo usb adapter - invisible


Use this tip as a check list.
Check if you set the correct SSID + Key and "connect if router is not broadcasting" set in your adapter configuration.
If you do not know Key you need to reset from Router.
If you missed SSID you can check on any PC when connected to WLAN and retrieve the name of NON BROADCASTED network
