Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi i have two portable computers in the house. One laptop. One Netbook. I have a belkin router for the wireless. altho my laptop connects to the router fine and the internet works perfectly. the netbook detects the wireless router. but then demands a security key. the netbook will not accept my security key to use the wireless router no matter how many times i try. i have checked for any kind of possibly typing error etc etc amd nothing is working. It seems to keep saying it is the wrong security key even tho it isn't. i tried pressing the button on the wireless router and it still refuses to connect meaning my netbook is left internetless. Could it be something wrong with the netbook? Or does it need a different security key? I am very confused as to the problem and have had several people come here and try to help with no luck. Any advice or assistance is much appritiated. Thanks. Rudy.

You have to go in the setup ( in router ) for the wireless and see what security you are using, are you using WEP; WEP/PSK; WEP/802,1x and then you have to use the same in the computer.

Wireless connection to belkin g router model no. f5d7230-4


You need to access the setup page of the router using connected computer.

In your browser's address bar, type 192.168.2.1.

By default, leave the password blank.

On the Belkin setup page, go to Wireless.

Take note of the SSID. This is the name of your wireless connection.

Then go to Security under Wireless. Copy the network key.

On your friend's laptop, view the available wireless networks, you should see the SSID, then just enter the network key.

I hope this helps!
