There should be a wizard built into your operating system that will let you do that or if you have the little wireless icon on the bar with the start menu double click that and click on the option on the upper left part of the screen that says "setup a wireless network for a home or small office" you should have the option of securing it with a password.

Where do find my security key to connect to the internet..I,m trying to set up a new computer..Thanks


If you have access to a wireless computer that is already connected to and operating on your network, then you should go here and download this utility http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=Im-88880-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en
and then run it. Once it fully scans, click on Show Advanced Tools in the bottom left of the window and select Retrieve WPA/WEP Key, it will be on the right side.

If you do NOT have a wireless computer available, then you need to loginto your router (sorry, but I do not know which router you have) and go to the wireless page. If you have WEP, just copy down the WEP key that has the radial button selected (green dot) and that is your key. If you have WPA, copy the Preshared key.

If you do not know how to get to your router setup, go to a computer that is conencted to your router by a LAN cord. Go to Start > Run and in the Run window type CMD. If you have Vista or Win 7, go to the Start Orb and just type CMD into the serch bar. In the command prompt window type IPCONFIG /ALL now look for Default Gateway (that's your router) and copy down the IP Address.
Now open a web browser utility and type that IP Address into the address bar.

I have just got a Belkin N1 vision wireless modem router. I have set it up and have it working ok on a Unsecure wireless network. But as soon as I try to secure the network. I get the following message...


Hi,

Right-click on the network icon in the bottom right hand corner of your screen, Press Connect to a Network. You should see your wireless network in the list. Before you secured it, you could automatically connect to it because it was unsecured. Now you will have to double click on it and enter the username and password you secured your router with.
Once you have done that, there should be a box for you to tick that says 'Automatically connect to this network'. Tick that.
Done.

Hope this helps

I cannot connect to the internet with my belkin wireless adapater and i don't know why, please help.


you need more than a wireless adapter to connect to the internet......
you need a wireless network to connect to. in cafe's and pubs the owner sometimes sets up a WiFi network that their patrons can connect to, however most people have to provide their own.

to get to the internet , you will need.

A broadband connection (ADSL / Cable) this normally comes with a standard NON wifi modem
A WiFi Router (including ADSL / Cable Modem) depending on what you have already.


then to link a remote PC / Laptop to this network, A suitable wireless adapter ( like your belkin adapter)

it is a common misconception that a wireless adapter is all you need (advertising is vague)

Belkin Wireless Modem Router problem


well, first of all the i also have the N1 belkin wireless modem router, in order for it to connect, there has to be a wireless connection in your area for you to connect to, if any of your neighbors so have wireless you can connect to their network, but if you are not getting a conection that means no one around you has wireless or lan, the belkin wireless is not a internet provider it just extends the distance of your internal wireless. some networks may be secured as well, sometimes you can only connect to unsecured networks unless you have the name and passcode for the secured network.

Hi, i have a belkin adsl2 modem with wireless- g router model f5d7632-4 and it was working fine but now i am getting no connection at all (no adsl light) checked all my wires/filters am stuck! i am on...


Check with your Network provider, and ask them if they can run a line check. No adsl can be problem with either the line or hardware.

But before that do check with your modem as well.

I forgot my network key, and purchase another computer. So, I second computer can't connect to my wireless network.


Hello Haity01,

There should be a very small reset button on the back of your router that you will need to press (with a pen or paper clip, etc...) for at least 10 seconds while it's powered up. Doing so will revert the router to it's default configuration (unsecured wireless network, or default key printed on the router or router/modem). If resetting defaults to open/unsecured? You should be able to address the router by typing 192.168.1.1 into the address bar of a browser once connected to the router and enable encryption and re enter a new key, then save those settings.

I hope this helps, and Good luck.
