Hi

You dont need to change your default SSID settings. if youre using a belking router you can access iuts admin graphic page by opening browser >on the address bar: type in 192.168.2.1 > and check your wireless settings re security .

note: check your default gateway by going to run > cmd > ipconfig /all and hit enter

There youl find your default gateway
The def gateweay is your routers IP address .

Type that on your address bar to access your belkin

Let me know if this help.Keep me posted

Cheers.

Unsecured network


  • You need to log into the router setup screen - you do this by connecting a PC to the Router via a cable connection and then using Internet Explorer (IE) you log into the router.
Using the default settings
  • Open a web browser and enter http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter. When the login window appears, set the user name to admin and leave the password box empty. Click OK to continue.

It connects to a unsecured net gear but wont to my linksys g i have a 16 diget key could this be the problem thanks barry


Yes.
If your wireless adapter connects fine to an unsecured access point, but will not connect to your secured access point, the problem is in the security layer. Either you are not feeding your adapter the right key, or your adapter doesn't support the encryption type your access point is demanding.

Excellent Wireless Network Connection, cannot access internet


The unsecure public network nay be using mac address filtering. In this case, the network will show as being unsecured, and will even allow you to connect in some cases, but then will not allow you to surf once connected.

Can not find a non secure signal


hi..
sadly to say but there are no default key codes,its usually setup by the person who has setup the wireless networks,people are becoming more and more aware of the consequences of unsecured networks so most of them are securing the wireless networks,you can try connecting your laptop wirelessly to hotspot areas like airport,cafe and other places..incase if you want wireless internet from home and if you have mobile connection from verizon or sprint then you can get in touch with them and get wireless mobile broadband which will be your own wireless network and you donot have to depend upon someone elses unsecured network and the advantage of this type of wireless card is you can use the internet outside the home as well as when you are travelling...

Passphrase


ok....
it seems that you are tring to connect to someone elses secured network which means you will not be able to connect to this wireless network as it has security enabled in it and the passphrase is know to the person who has setup this network....what i can suggest is that you can try connecting to unsecured networks if it is available...if there is no networks unsecured networks available then you will not be able to connect to the internet wirelessly..

Hye


On the security enabled network you need the pass phrase associated with the secured network and its configuration(WEP, WAP, ect...). If you are authorized to use this account contact the system administrator and he/she will give you pass phrase and configuration info needed to configure your network connection. If you are not authorized to be on that system and the are using WEP there is a program called net stumbler that captures several thousand packets and analyzes them using an ingenious algorithym and discerns the passphrase needed to gain access to the protected network in a couple of minutes. Net stumbler is also a great tool for the hobby war driving. This is a game where people drive around looking for internet hotspots and logging there location and getting in. It's more of a status thing than a criminal thing. It is illegal to access soomeone's network even if it is left open with no protection, believe it or not. I just read a story about a kid in England getting arrested sitting on a public bench accessing a womans wireless service from her flat accross the street. An officer aproached him and noticed he was online. Even thought the woman had left her wireless router wide open the kid was charged with theft of service. You have to be careful because networks log all connections and personally identifyable information about all computers that log onto a network. I hope you found this informative. Please take the time to rate it for me.

You have to setup a password on your wireless network. This way you will only be logged on to your owns. No one else will be able to enter you network.
