    * Check to see if your wireless router or access point is set to not
    broadcast its Network name (SSID). If so, you will need to enter the
    SSID manually in the printer’s setup software. If your wireless router
    or access point has wireless security enabled, you will also need to
    know what kind of security it is using.
    * Make sure the printer is within range of the wireless router or wireless access point.

    * Try connecting to the wireless router or access point with your
    computer or another device to confirm that it is working correctly.
    * Avoid placing the printer near a microwave oven, 2.4 GHz cordless phone, or large metal objects such as a filing cabinet.

    * Make sure there aren’t any access restrictions (such as MAC address
    filtering) set on the wireless router or access point. If access
    restrictions are set, register the printer’s MAC address on the router
    or access point. Print a Network Status Sheet to obtain the MAC
    address. Then see your router or access point’s documentation for
    instructions.
    * Make sure that you entered the correct WEP key or
    passphrase for your wireless network. WEP keys are either ASCII or Hex
    and passphrases are case-sensitive.
    * Make sure that the printer is connected to your network with a Ethernet cable during the installation.
    * Make sure the printer is turned on.
    * If you see the message “The combination of IP address and subnet mask is invalid”, try the following solutions:

    o If your router or access point is set to assign IP addresses using
    DHCP, try setting the printer’s IP address setting to Auto.
    o If
    you want to manually configure the printer’s IP address, click Change
    when you see the Current IP Address Status screen and enter the IP
    address and subnet mask.
    o Make sure your computer is connected to
    your wireless router or access point. See your router or access point’s
    documentation for details.
    o Set a unique IP address for your
    printer. All IP addresses are written in segments of four numerical
    values. The last segment must be set to a unique numerical value
    (between 1 and 254). When the router is a set to assign IP addresses
    using DHCP, set the printer’s IP address to a value that doesn’t
    conflict with the IP address range assigned by the DHCP server.

    For example:

    IP address of your router or access point: 192.168.1.1 IP address of
    your printer: 192.168.1.3 For the subnet mask, 255.255.255.0 is
    normally used for small-scale networks (all devices on your network
    should use the same subnet mask). Also, when a gateway value is set,
    use the same value as the IP address for your wireless router or access
    point.

Win xp desktop connected to wrt54gs router wants laptop running win 7 to connect wirelessly


We need to know the wireless settings on your router before configuring the laptop.

To check the wireless settings, access the setup page of the router by using the desktop's internet browser. In the address bar, type 192.168.1.1.

Default login is: leave the username blank, then the password is admin.

Once you are in the setup page, go to the Wireless tab.

Take note of the wireless network name (SSID).

Then go to the Wireless Security tab. Take note of the wireless security settings and the network key (if wireless security is enabled).

On your laptop, in the lower right corner of your screen you will see an icon that looks like this moz-screenshot-1.jpgc147bd5.png.

Click the icon and you will see a list of available networks.

Select the SSID of your router then click connect.

If the wireless security is enabled, it will ask for the security key. Type the wireless network key, then click ok.

It will then connect wirelessly.

Good luck!

No network code for router want to connect my laptop to it


Hello friend,
i guess that you are talking about wireless code, in this case you will need to connect the laptop to the router via Ethernet cable to configure it and then unplug the cable and use the wireless.
so you connect the ethernet cable between the laptop and one of the ports on the router from 1 to 4. then access to the router web interface which is usually 192.168.1.1. then go the wireless tab and name your wireless access point and put a password to secure your network. After that you can unplug your Ethernet cable and use the wireless on your laptop to connect your router wirelessly.
Best Regards,

Can't connect the artisan 800 to our wireless network


To add the printer to your wireless network, you need to know the name (SSID)
of your wireless network. If it has security enabled, you also need to know the
WEP key or passphrase. Write down the SSID and WEP key or passphrase below:
■ Network name (SSID): _________________________________________
■ WEP key or passphrase: _________________________________________
Note:
If the WEP key is either 5 or 13 characters, it’s ASCII. If the WEP key is either 10 or 26
characters, it’s hexadecimal. The default WEP key is usually 1.
If your passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to note it correctly.
The printer supports the following wireless security modes: WEP 64, WEP 128, and
WPA-PSK.
If you don’t know your wireless network name (SSID) or WEP key or passphrase,
contact the person who set up your wireless network before you begin.


Insert the printer software CD.
2. Windows Vista®: If you see the AutoPlay window, click Run Epsetup.exe.
When you see the User Account Control screen, click Continue.
Windows® XP: When you see the Software installation screen, continue with
step 3.
Mac OS® X: Double-click the icon.
3. Click Install.

1.Make sure that the printer is turned on.
2. When you see the FireWall Warning screen, click Next.
3.Make sure you connected the Ethernet cable

Wireless doesn't work


Hi Friend,
Kindly check the below given instructions,

To access the WIRELESS (WLAN) settings window, click on the Wireless Setup button in the SETUP directory.

WIRELESS NETWORK SETTINGS

1.Click on the Enable Wireless box to allow the router to operate in the
wireless environment.

2.The SSID identifies members of the Service Set. Accept the default
name or change it to something else. If the default SSID is changed, all
other devices on the wireless network must also use the same SSID.

3.Enable Auto Channel Scan so that the router can select the best
possible channel for your wireless network to operate on.

4.The Wireless Channel can let you select the channel of your access
point. Channel availability is different for different countries due to their
regulation.

5.Select 802.11 Mode to operate in b/g/n mode. Or select specified mode
to use.

6.Channel Width, Maximum rate for 20 MHz is 130 Mbps. Maximum rate
for 40 MHz is 270 Mbps.

7.Transmission Rate, suggest keeping the Best (automatic) selection.

8.Click on the Hide Wireless Network box to allow the router to stop broadcasting its SSID.

WIRELESS SECURITY WIZARD

bottom of the window.)

5.Select Authentication type from the drop-down menu. (Shared is
better than Open)

6.Click on the Apply Settings button to apply settings.

Check and revert back

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Securing my wireless linksys BEFW11S4 ver. 4


Hello,

I’ll be pleased to help if I can. To answer your last question first, this router is already set up for wireless networking, so nothing further needs to be done with regard to that.

However, to prevent others using your connection, it's necessary to set up wireless security. There are four main steps, which are the same for most routers:

1) Login to your router, using a wired connection
2) Change the router login password
3) Change the network name (SSID)
3) Enable WPA encryption

Here are the details:

1) Login to your router, using a wired connection.
First, you will need an Ethernet cable to connect one of your computers to the router. This cable just plugs into a spare port on the back of your router, while the other end plugs into the Ethernet port on your computer (looks like this picture).

When you are connected, open a web browser on your computer. Type the router’s IP address into the address bar, which is http://192.168.1.1 for this model. (Note, there is no ‘www’)

You should then see a popup box, prompting you for a username and password. If these have not been changed, leave username blank and enter password: admin

If you log in successfully, you should then see the Linksys router configuration screen.

2) Change the router login password.
To set a new password, go to Administration > Management. Set and confirm a new Router Password. On this screen, I would also recommend that ‘Remote Upgrade’ and ‘Remote Administration’ are disabled. Click ‘Save Settings’ when finished.

(Tip: write the password on a label and stick it on the router, or keep it somewhere safe. )

3) Change the SSID (router name):
Go to Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings. Change the ‘Wireless Network Name (SSID)’ from the default, to anything you like, that you can remember. It is case sensitive, and you can use up to 32 letters –but do not use something that could identify you, or your location.

At this stage I’d recommend that SSID broadcast remains enabled.

4) Enable WPA encryption
Go to Wireless > Wireless Security. Enable Wireless Security. Under ‘Security Mode’ you have a number of options for encryption, but I would pick WPA-Pre-Shared Key, which is very secure and good for most equipment.

Under ‘WPA Shared Key’ you need to enter a network key. This is a long password, or passphrase, between 8 and 63 letters/numbers long. This can be any series of letters/ numbers, or you can use a phrase with numbers
( eg: 456the51stSTATeOFtheUSA1599 ). It is case sensitive. The stronger the network key the better, if you are very concerned about security.

Note down the network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. (The network key may also be called the WPA shared key, PSK, WPA-PSK, pre-shared key, security key, passphrase, or authentication key). Click ‘Save settings’ when finished.

That's it, you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.

There are further security options to enable if you wish, but these three are the most important.

When you next connect wirelessly, you should see your network with its new name in the 'available wireless networks'. When you attempt to connect, you are asked for the network key you set in Step 4. If all goes well, you can then save this and will connect automatically in future.

Hope this helps you. Please come back to Fixya if this doesn't work, or if you need help with any of it.

jpconda - you did nothing wrong.
By changing your SSID, your connection broke, because you were still associated with your old SSID (linksys).
Right-click on your wireless network connection symbol in your taskbar and choose "View Available Wireless Networks". If you broadcast your SSID, you should see your new name in the list.
Just connect to it (and hopefully enter the security key..;-).
If you don't see it, go to 192.168.1.1 and enable the broadcast of your SSID ( on the Wireless Tab - Basic Wireless Settings). Don't forget to save your changes!
Once your are connected, you can disable the broadcast again, if you don't want someone else to "see" your network.
