This Connection is Untrusted

You have asked Firefox to connect securely to apps.fb.miniclip.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.

Normally, when you try to connect securely, sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What should i do now??!!!

My wifi detect an available on secured connection but when i connect it they tell me can not connect


A secured WiFi connection has been setup to prevent unauthorized access. To connect to a secured WiFi connection you need to get permission from the person that has this secured WiFi connection and get them to give you the encryption key (password).

  3. Click on "Search for an Access Point."

  4. The Nintendo DS will search for any wireless networks within range. Once it is finished searching, it will display the names of all the wireless networks it finds.


Once you have done this you may find next to your wi-fi, a lock this is what they mean:

  1. Tap on your network name to select it.

  1. Select "OK," "Save Settings," and then "Yes." The Nintendo DS will run a connection test with your wireless router.
  • The connection test was successful - Your Nintendo DS is now connected online and you can enjoy the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection features of the game!
  • The connection test was not successful - If the test was not successful, you will receive an error code.
    • Error Code 51300: This means the security code or network name entered into the Nintendo DS is not the same one the router is set to. To reach your connection settings, click "back" on the error code screen. Make sure to pay extra attention to the security key you find in your router's settings and enter it exactly as it appears (the key is case sensitive).

The Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite are not compatible with WPA security. If you would still like to connect your Nintendo DS online, you will need to either change your router's security to WEP, or disable security entirely. Please note that any changes you make will affect other devices that connect wirelessly to your router.

We have a Zyair B-3000 wireless network. With our older Notebooks (XP or Vista) the wireless communication is no problem but with newer computers I can't establish a wireless connection (e.g. HP Pavilion...


To trace the problem, I would first temporarily turn off security on the ZyAir B-3000 and see if you can connect with the iPad and the HP.

To do this login to the ZyAir. If you still have it set to factory settings you would login by clicking here: http://192.168.1.2 then type the password which is 1234. The find the wireless security screen and turn off WEP security. By the way, If you still have factory password, I would change that soon.

Here is the users manual with more details: ftp://ftp.zyxel.com/B-3000/user_guide/B-3000_3.50.pdf

After turning off all security, try and connect from the two systems that cannot connect. If you can then the problem most likely has something to do with wireless security. Now with the security still off try and connect with the other 2. If all 4 can connect without security turned on it is probably a wireless security issue. You could try changing from WEP to WPA security and see if all 4 can connect. You do not want to run your wireless router without security so make sure you turn the security back on..

I say most likely it is security, because maybe there are some settings that might be blocking the iPad and HP from connecting. Maybe the router is set to only allow two connections, or is set to allow specifc MAC addresses of the two older computers. Look around the configuration firmware in the ZyAir and see if there are any settings that would limit how many can connect wirelessly, or limit specific systems to specific MAC addresses.

After spending too much time on this and it still doesn't work, then you might consider doing a factory reset. Beware that a factory reset will wipe out all the configuration on the ZyAir and you will have to reconfigure. Instructions to factory reset are in the users manual link above, but basically you hold the side RESET button for 10 seconds, it will restart and you don't touch it till it is done resetting. If you do decide to do the factory reset, then right after resetting and before setting up security on the ZyAir I would try and connect all 4 systems at once. If that works then configure the ZyAir with security.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.

How to secure my wireless connection?


Open IE, go to your router using 192.168.1.1 and select Wireless security for the router you are using. Use WEP or WAP with 64 bit security. Use the same key on your desktop to connect to this secure connection.
