Re: wireless key on my laptop it wnt work
Check all cable connections
Ensure devices are powered on
Check the cable connection or to the hub ensure you have green link light
Make sure you are using the proper cables - CAT5e ? CAT6 - not crossover

yes, you can. I have my printer connect to my hub and my desktop and I can print from my laptop wirelessly.
You will need your all in one connected via a printer or USB cable to a computer AND also connected to your hub. Then, go to the computer that is connected through a cable to the all in one. Your all in one should have some way to configure its IP address. I have my printer configured as 192.168.1.4 and it's plugged into the 4th port of my hub. Check if this works.
click on start >> go to control panel >> double click on network and internet connections >> right click on wireless network connection >> click on properties and go to wireless tab >> check the box at the top that says use windows utility >> click on ok and than right click on wireless network connection and click view available wireless networks. It will show you your network name. click and connect to your network.
have you typed the key exactly? viz uppercase/lowercase. The switch(hub) might have MAC address filtering on. also check if the switch(hub) has a DHCP running, which allocates IP addresses, if not you need to set your wireless connections IP address within the same range as the switch. If all else fails attempt to connect the switch via a utp network cable which should have been suplied with the switch(hub) so you can access the switch and make the necessary changes... email me on email@example.com should you need more info.
Could be a variety of reasons. Assuming you have not had it working before Assuming the wifi is broadcasting it SSID Assuming you have laptop connected by ethernet cable to hub:
Assuming you have XP:
Go to start/control panel/network connections/right click the wireless
lan icon and select properties/select wireless connections and delete
ALL previous entries.
With Vista go:start globe then
Control Panel\Network and Sharing\Manage Wireless Networks and delete all entries
press windows key and R type cmd and enter type ipconfig and enter note lower set of figures ie 192.168.0.1 open browser and type in those figures and enter should now open router firmware When asked for log in use defaults of admin - admin or admin - password
navigate to wireless security and set encryption to WEP 64bit and create a simple encryption code - save settings
Change broadcast channel to 8
make sure wifi is set to open and not shared
Save all settings, allow hub to reboot and now see what happens
BT is right, the fault is at your end, because you can connect to the Internet with an ethernet cable. You have lost your wireless connection with the wireless hub. This could be low signal strength (especially if the wireless access point is in one part of the house and your laptop is in another room) OR Your laptop wireless card has lost its wireless access configuration. Check your laptop wireless configuration, check your signal strength, check your SSID, check your security (WEP or WAP), Have you got MAC address filtering. Go to control panel, click on network connections, right click on Wireless Network, Click on repair (might fix your connection problem), Else right click on Status (should give you indication of how your wireless is functioning or not functioning). Check your TCP/IP settings is set for "Obtain an IP address automatically" Without more information it is difficult to identify exactly what is wrong with your connection.
