Make sure that your network isn't restricting wireless access by MAC address. If it is, you will need to enter the MAC address of your iphone into the correct place on your router's firewall.

I keep getting a message to enter network password but i have tried putting the one in that virgin gave but it doesn't work


You will have to call Virgin Media for that. Tell them you need the network key for your wireless connection. There is possibility that they are giving you the password for your account.

Wi-Fi Functionality
  1. Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
  2. If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, iPod touch will scan for Wi-Fi networks and show a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show a lock icon (307189_1.jpg) next to them.
  3. Option to manually enter your Wi-Fi network name/SSID (if the Wi-Fi network is configured not to broadcast or be displayed to the public). If necessary, enter the password to join.
When iPod touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon (307189_2.jpg) in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
Wi-Fi Settings
  1. Turn Wi-Fi on or off.
    Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on or off.
  2. Set iPod touch to ask if you want to join a new Wi-Fi network.
    When you are trying to access the Internet, by using Safari or YouTube for example, and you are not in range of a Wi-Fi network you have previously used, this option tells iPod touch to look for another network. iPod touch will display a list of all available Wi-Fi networks that you can choose from. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon (307189_1.jpg).

    If "Ask to Join Networks" is turned off, you must manually join a network to connect to the Internet when a previously used network is unavailable.

    Choose Wi-Fi and turn "Ask to Join Networks" on or off. If you turn "Ask to Join Networks" off, you must join new networks manually.
  3. Join a Wi-Fi network manually.
    Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPod touch detects networks in range, then choose a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon.
  4. Make iPod touch forget a network, so that the device doesn't join it automatically. Choose Wi-Fi and tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network you've joined before. Then tap "Forget this Network."
  5. Connect to a closed Wi-Fi network (an available Wi-Fi network that isn't shown in the list of scanned networks).
    Choose Wi-Fi, then tap Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, choose Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password. You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network. Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. Ask the network administrator which settings to use.
  6. Adjust settings to connect to a Wi-Fi network
    Choose Wi-Fi, then tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network.

I cant get my psp on because it keeps askin me for my wpa key! where do i find that. its not on my router.


Hi Friend, In this case UI would like to tell you that the WPA key is the same password that you use to connect to the Internet wirelessly from your system.
The WPA key is the password that you set for the wireless network at your home. So, I would recommend you to try and enter the wireless network name's password

Hi i am trying to connect my wireless router to run my lap top however it is asking me for a pin number that should be on the bottom of the modem and i dont see a pin number?


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! I believe that when you're trying to connect wirelessly it's not asking for the network key or other users are able to connect to your network. Please follow the steps below for you to be able to make your connection secure.

1 Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."

2 Use "admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank or try to use " admin" as the password as well.

3 Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."

4 Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.

5 Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.

6 Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router

Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

I have a belkin g plus mimo 3ASF5F router which is unsecured. I want to enable a security password. I have tried by using the WEP connection on properties security and adding a password but it immediately...


you need to set the password in your computer's network connection as well:
control panel --> network connections --> wireless .
find your SID network and delete it.
then re-scan for network connections and when it finds it will ask for the password.
enter the password and you should be good to go

Making a secure connection


Hi Alex26673,

Try a hard reset. You need a straightened paper clip. The Recessed reset button is to the right of the unit's power socket. Press and hold for 10 seconds and then release. Wait 5 minutes for it to finish rebooting and stabilise. Then try you admin login again.

Wirless connection


I think you asked this twice, but here is my suggestion:

this information is setup at the router (Access Point) and you will need to get the information from there.. Although there are ways to 'hack' this information, I will not tell you how to do this here, as we do not want to enable 'hackers'...

You need to hard wire the computer to the Access Point and enter the configuration of the device.. within it, you will find the SSID (name of the wifi network connection) and the type of encryption (WEP, WAP, etc.). From this page, you can discover the Passphrase or Encryped Password, which will allow you to access the WiFi connection.
