It depends on what kind of security you have enabled for your router. It sounds like to me that you have not gotten the password right to join your network.

Double check your password and make sure caps lock is off, etc. If that is not the case , then try power cycling your router.

Do that by unplugging it, waiting a minute, and then plugging it back in. You may have to reenable your security measures but that should get you in...

  • If you do so, then the router will no longer work in 90% of cases.
  • The WiFi protected setup is enabled by default in this model.
  • The computers using XP,vista,win7 may not connect to the wireless network. 96cff88.jpg
Solution:
In that case you can add the wireless network manually in the computer.Still if it says error message as "windows cannot connect",then follow these steps according to your operating system.

Control Panel>Network and Internet (Network and Sharing Center)>On your left hand side click on Manage Network connections>Right Click on Wireless Network Connection icon>Click on Properties>authentication tab>uncheck IEEE authentication

WINDOWS 7:
Start >
Control Panel>Network and Internet (Network and Sharing Center)>On your left hand side Click on Change Adapter Settings>Right Click on Wireless Network Connection icon>Click on Properties>authentication tab>uncheck IEEE authentication

Not connecting to the internet


Router ?

Problems authenticating a router in a computer is a common problem when installing a router or if your internet service gets disrupted. It is easy to solve and only requires a few steps to fix. A router forwards data from a computer to a computer network. The network can be between multiple computers, such as one would need in an office. The network can also, and more usually in households, used for connecting to the internet. Open "System Preferences" in the Applications folder in Finder. Open "Network" under "Internet and Wireless." Click "Advanced" and select "TCP/IP." Select "Renew DHCP License" and click ok. Attempt to connect to the internet. If the internet is still not connecting, restart the router and try the steps again. b> For non-Macs b> Open "Wireless Network Connection" from the wireless tab at the bottom of the screen. Select "Change Advanced Settings." Choose the "Wireless Networks" tab. Choose the wireless network you want to connect to and select the "Properties" button. Under the "Association" tab, make sure the Network Authentication has the proper security level chosen. Enter your network key if your security code is anything other than "Open" or "Shared." Select OK and try to connect. Go Back to "Wireless Networks" tab -> "Properties" and click on "Authentication" tab and un-select the "Enable authentication for the network" selection if the network key is still not authenticating the router. Select OK and try to connect.
Hope this helps.

I am using tp link adapter wn650g. i have two problems 1) when i click the tp link icon on the task bar it says authenticating on the link status. 2) although i have a 108 mb card but it always connect...


Hi!

The Authenticating status means that you entered an icorrect network key. The 54Mbps is the wireless speed that your card is getting from the wireless router. That means that your router can only broadcast a maximum speed of 54Mbps. This is usual for Wireless-G routers. Although your card is capable of receiving 108 Mbps, the router doesn't have that speed. The 108 Mbps can be attained if you have a Wireless-N router. To resolve the Authenticating error, try to reconnect to your wireless network using the TP-Link utility. Make sure to enter the corrent wireless network key also called as passphrase. If you are using WEP as security mode, follow the steps below

For Win XP
1. Go to Control Panel, Network Connections
2. Right click on Wireless Network Connection > Properties
3. Click on the Wireless Network Tab and at the bottom you'll see Preferred Networks
4. Highlight the name of your network and click on Properties. Click on Authentication tab then uncheck the option that says "Enable IEEE" something like that. Click OK all the way out
5: Check if that fixes it. You may also try to reboot the computer after that.

One more thing is you can try to change the Channel of your router. You can do that by connecting your laptop hardwired to your router then access router web interface

Right click on wireless network connection and go to properties. From the Wireless Networks tab, choose your wireless network and then click Properties.

Click the Authentication tab. On the Authentication tab, Uncheck"Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication" for this network check box. and click oK.

Wireless network connection, Intel (r) pro/wireless 2200bg says not connected. How do I get it to say connected? I have disabled it and then enabled it and to my surprise it still says not connected- How...


Try these first:

Make sure that the wep password is correct.

change channels to 1-6-or 11.

check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
