Question about SMC Barricade 7004VWBR Wireless Router
Trying to use Blackberry Curve (8320) Wifi phone through SMC Wireless BArricade 7004vwbr. It can locate the wifi point but cannot obtain an IP address. Have checked all obvious causes. PLenty of IP addresses not assigned and available, Dynaic IP assignment turned on. MAC address is registered, but same result whether MAC filtering is turned on or not. Same result with firewall on or off. WEP not in use. Works fine with a variety of other wifi points

It is not unusual for the radio transmitters to fail in wireless routers after a year or two of use, especially if they're used in a location with poor ventilation or dust buildup. "Kaput" is probably a good term for it, but it would be worth finding someone with another laptop to try connecting through your router...just to verify that it's really a problem in the router and not in the wireless adapter in your computer.

just hardwired a computer to the router and open a web browser. on the address bar of the web browser type http://192.168.2.1 (default ip address of the router) and you will be prompted with the login screen. by default you don't need to type anything on the password field. now you will prompted with the router's page and from there you can set it up.
click here for the manual.
hope this'll help you

Hello Peter, I'll try and help if I can. I'm assuming you're using Windows XP.
First, when enabling security on your router, it is best to connect using a wired, rather than wireless connection.
Open your web browser, as if about to view a web page, but instead type the address of your router in the address bar. I think this is http://192.168.2.1 (Note there is no 'www'.)
If successful, you should see a screen asking for a password. The default is set as blank, so just click 'login'.
You should see a home page. Click the option for 'Advanced Setup'. Then click the left hand menu item, 'System', then 'Password Settings'.
You should see a screen where you can change your current (blank) password to a password of your choice, and then confirm the choice (it should have 3 to 12 characters, letters and/or numbers). Click 'Apply' to save the settings.
To secure your router, there are a couple more steps to follow. Click the 'Wireless' option on the left hand menu. Under 'Channel and SSID', you should see a screen which shows your SSID (a name for the router)....It is a good security idea to change this to another name - anything you like, as long as you can remember it! Click 'Apply' to confirm the new setting.
Then select 'Encryption' from the Wireless menu. Select 128 bit WEP encryption. You should see a box asking for a 'passphrase'. Enter any phrase, made up from letters and numbers, with no spaces, and click 'Generate'.
I hope you will then see a series of numbers split into boxes. Write down the numbers in sequence (or maybe you could print the screen?). This is your encryption key. Click 'Apply' to save the settings.
You can then exit from this screen.
The last thing to do is set up your wireless adapter connection (eg, a laptop, or whichever computer has the wireless connection). When your wireless connection tries to access the internet, you should see your router with its new name come up in the 'available networks'. Click to connect, then enter your WEP key when prompted.
I hope this helps you. I'm not a pro, just lending a hand, so please come back to Fixya if anything is not clear, or doesn't work as expected! All the best.

I assume this is your wireless KEY
The user manual is here http://www.smc.com/index.cfm?event=downloads.doSearchCriteria&localeCode=EN_GBR&knowsPartNumber=false&productCategory=1&modelNumber=955&partNumber=3552&downloadType=8&os=0
you can choose the exact model from here http://www.smc.com/index.cfm?event=downloads.searchCriteria&localeCode=EN_GBR&knowsPartNumber=false&productCategory=1&downloadType=0&os=0
You should be able to see how to view or reset the wireless password.
Connect your PC to the Router with a LAN cable:- You will need to login to your router- you do this by typing a number into a web browser, Internet explorer, is best as some routers do not work with other browsers The way to log into the router is usually to use the IP address, thats a number which will be in the manual - Page 29 on the manual (33 on pdf screen) To access the Wireless Barricade’s management interface, enter the Wireless Barricade IP address in your Web browser http://192.168.2.1. Then click LOGIN. (By default, there is no password.) Goto the wireless section - secruity and you should be able to see the KEY - IF its all * - the you can type in a newone
I would also remove the wireless profile from your PC - to do this have a read of this link. Remove the wireless profiles from your PC http://mgmcc.forumotion.net/networking-tutorials-f17/removing-an-existing-wireless-profile-t109.htm
