Make sure wireless feature on the laptop is enabled and turned on. Right Click on the small wireless icon on the task bar [pc symbol with wireless waves]. Select view available wireless networks - from there it should be straightforward. Please rate the assistance I have given. thanks.........

Wireless


Wireless Internet is a convenient way to hook up multiple computers to one router without the mess of cords.
The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up through your Internet Service
Provider and connected with either a DSL line or Cable.
Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no additional hardware is required.

Turn on the laptop.
Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the right, then let go.
The switch will go back to its original position.

Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on the screen.
Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.
In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle;
In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."
It might also say "Open network and sharing center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.
Click to highlight the network and click the "Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up the router (if applicable).
If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway page specified in the user's guide. Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to see if security is enabled.

If it is, type in a new key and enter the same number for the wireless network.

I have a belkin wireless router I have one laptop connected to it now I want to connect another laptop to it but I forgot the password how can I find it?


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Most likely your internal wireless card has gone bad. Not to worry, though, they're rather inexpensive on ebay and Tigerdirect.com. A qualified technician may charge quite a bit to install it, though so for the time being there's the option of using a USB type adapter. Here's some examples: http://www.amazon.com/Medialink-Wireless-Adapter-Windows-Compatible/dp/B002RM08RE/ref=dp_cp_ob_e_title_0

I guess you meant the Security Key for the wireless. You need to manually set the encryption type and key in order to connect.
When connected to the Wireless router with a cable, open up command prompt (Start->Run...->cmd [OK]), type ipconfig and note the IP address of the Gateway.
Copy paste this Gateway IP Address into IE and [Go]. you'll be prompted to logon. Try defaults if you don't know (Admin, Admin or Admin, password).
Then depends on the model of the Wireless router you need to locate settings for the wireless connection. Recommands WPA-PSK 2, AES.

Adding laptop to home system through Belkin59G .


Good Day!

I believe you are trying to connect wirelessly using your laptop to your wireless router(Belkin 59G). Try to hook it up first on your computer and check if you can go online.

If yes, then that's the time you go to the router's set up page and check the wireless security of the router so that you can connect wirelessly.

If not, then you have to reconfigure the router and the modem. If your internet service provider is cable you can just turn off the router then the modem and waitfor 5 seconds. Turn on the modem, wait for the lights to turn on then the router. After that, check if the computer will be able to go online when connected directly to the router.
