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.

It is asking for an access code to an access point . What is that?


Wireless networks can be secure or unsecure. Anyone can connect to an unsecure site simply by searching for available sites and choosing an unsecure one to connect to. There are inherit risks associarted with unsecure sites and you should NEVER do any financial or highly personal transactions on an unsecure network. Secure networks require a password (access code) to complete connection. This code is provided by the owner/administrator of the network. If you are allowed to connect to such a network, you should already be aware of the code. Otherwise you are basically not invited to the party.

I forgot my user name and password, how can change this, i have internet now but it is unsecured


Hi deltaplus000,


Welcome to Fixya. If you want to setup a password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security on the Dropdown next to Security Mode select either WEP or WPA. Then Personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure. Then Save the settings

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I turn on my laptop in order to use ot wirelessly?


Hi

Enable your wireless connections and search for wireless connection that in unsecured or secured connection. For secured connection, you need to encode the WEP password to be able to access into the internet. For unsecured connection, you can connect directly and automatically.

I hope it helps you.

Did a factory restore, set up wireless, can browse internet via a neighbours unsecured network, but cant on mine. can log in to router wirelessly but thats it no internet


Dide you set up the wireless on your router? If you have done this and you have it set for None for security, you will also be "unsecured", BUT you still have a name (SSID) to identify your network. Check that your internet is set for "Private" access, if you are presented the option between Private and Public.

Why does my wireless internet only work when the network is not locked? does this mean my internet is not secure?


By not "locked" I assume you mean with security enabled. All clients connecting to your wireless access device must use the same credentials for security as your access device. Otherwise your clients will pick up and connect to any network that is unsecure.
