Connecting to wireless

I have purchased an Asus Eee PC seiries, I current run my wireless network on my Packard Bell, but am unable to obtain connection with my new Asus. We have lost the password for the netgear and in trying to connect it is asking for a key. Obviously we are unsure what this means.
I dont want re-set as this mean if I dont do it right I will lose connectivity to my current laptop. Can you help a novice understand what I have to do.

Hi,

Here you go, download this wireless key viewer.

Link: http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/WirelessKeyView-Download-53424.html

Once download, extract the files, open the folder up and click on the key icon.

It will show you the network you are connected to and the Hex Key marked on the image below, now all you need to do is write this down and when the Asus asks for the key put this one in and press connect.

Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Hi!

We need to isolate and troubleshoot from wall out. First, you need to check that your internet line is working by connecting your computer directly to your internet line (take off the router from the scene). If that doesn't work, you need to call your ISP to get you up and running first with your PC. As soon as it's up that's the only time you can add the router to the network.

Once confirmed, follow steps from this site:

Assuming that you have Windows XP, let's check some settings for the network connections. Click on start - settings - control panel - network connections. First we'll check the ethernet connection. Right click on local area connection - properties - choose Internet protocol (TCP/IP) - properties. In case of not at automatically settings click on both buttons to "obtain an IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS server address automatically". Click on OK at both windows. Now we will chect the Wi-fi connection. Right click on Wireless connection - properties - choose Internet protocol (TCP/IP) - properties. In case of not at automatically settings click on both buttons to "obtain an IP address automatically" and "obtain DNS server address automatically".
Click on OK at both windows and check for the results.

For that you need to change wireless channel type in your router.
You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Click on wireless settings Then change channel type to 3 or 6 or 11 then save settings and restart router then check in your computer
If still same issue then reinstalling the wireless driver then check..
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Belkin router with a laptop


1. First you need to configure your router with your laptop wired or physically connected to it.
2. Connect your modem to router's WAN/Internet port. Then your laptop will be connected to the one of the router's Ethernet port using an RJ45 or Ethernet cable.
3. You may run the setup cd that came with the router. Configure it with the Internet connection type that Bell Sympatico requires.
4. The setup cd will also require you to set up wireless in the router. Once it is done, disconnect your computer from the router.
5. Enable wifi in your laptop and select the wireless network that you set up and connect to it.

Trouble connecting wireless


first thing to do is to dissable the ethernet connection in network connections on your notebook so as the ip address does not conflict.

assuming it's XP and assuming DHCP is enabled in the router settings, right click on your wireless conection in network connections, properties>TCP/IP line, highlight it and then click properties again, then ensure obtain an ip address automatically is ticked, apply and ok, close window.

If neccasary run the wireless network wizard in new connections in network connections.

Open internet explorer>tools>internet options>connections tab and ensure that 'never dial a connection' is ticked, ok and close IE.
Open IE and click refresh a few times.
