What is the WPA Key

The WPA key is the passphrase or key that is entered into the router to make the wireless connection secure. No one will be able to access the wireless net work unless they know the WEP key when they try to connect to the wifi netowrk.

Router wifi and computer dont connect

Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.

I had a dell netbook with windows 7 wifi enabled and used (with permission and passkey) my neighbors wifi. that computer is now gone. now i have a 200 ibm thinkpad with the linksys wireless-b notebook...

This is caused by setting the encryption to WPA-RADIUS instead of
WPA-PSK on the client radio. Both the router and the client are
trying to find a RADIUS server with which to authenticate your system.
Switch the encryption to WPA-PSK (pre-shared key) on both ends and it
will work.

It wont set up to wifi on my DS I don't know what to do?

First of all, turn on your DSi. Then navigate to the wrench which is "System Settings."
Select "Internet" and then select "Connection Settings."
Search for the connection your best choice and will display all possible networks in the area. You do this by selecting "search for an access point." You may choose from wireless networks that are unsecured and do not require a password, or networks that are secure with WEP and do require a password.
If you have WPA secured connection simply select "change security settings" to enter a WPA key.
You should be connected.
BE AWARE, some secure connections are not allowed. You can change these on your routers local ip to either WEP or WPA.

Cannot connect wifi with my iPad and Mac Bool Pro. I have put my password (WPA), but not able to connect.

Both should connect OK: first ensure that Wifi is enabled an configured for each service.

In order to connect to a Wifi service you need to know/have the correct information for each network/router you want to connect to:
  • Broadcast or SSID : Case sensitive ID.
  • Security Type : NONE, SHARED, WEP, WPA-Personal, WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Personal or WPA2-Enterprise
  • Encrytion Type : AES or TKIP
  • Network Security Key: normally entered in Hex format (2chars pairs)
Hope it helps.

Can't connect to internet by using wifi on android HTC mobile phone

I had to change my F5D7234-4 from WPA2/AES to WPA/PSK TKIP in order to get my color nook and my android phones to work consistently.

The android devices would work with ping times in the 200 ms range in AES mode- but only if I turned off all three of my Windows PCs. With all the devices on- nothing would work. Changed to TKIP and all devices now have ping times in 2-3 ms range.
Now I don't have to return my Nook Color.

WiFi on tx2620es do not connect to Router

WEP, WPA and WPA2.
all 3 are encrypted, wpa2 is best.
you never once said the magic words "connected"
nor what window,s XP? must we GUESS OS?


i see you doing things impossible, like PING
the tx2620es must connected,to work
if it is connected,id remove the drivers, for the NICwifi
and load them freshoff
that will work
if not virus infected.
see the words connected, well some times it can lie.
obviously its in the tx2620es
id use CP + device manager
and blow the wifi stack away and get new drivers off
then find your SSID and connect, using the correct Pw

Wireless router blooking


You can block other users by enabling the MAC Filter and only accept connections from your PCs MAC numbers.  To determine the WiFi MAC numbers of your PC, click on Start, click on Run, type "ipconfig /all" on all your PCs. Look for the Wireless networking cards and their numbers which should be something like 00:A1:B2:C3:D4:E5. In the Web Configuration of the router, enable MAC Filter and enter those numbers in "Allow". Save and Exit. From thereon only the PCs with the MAC numbers entered would be allowed access to the Internet.

I personally find this preferable rather than WEP or WPA which causes slowdown in WiFi connections.

Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
