Your wireless card in your computer or laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Hi there, I wonder if you can help me, I am trying to get on to the internet on my Wii but it was a confirmed SSID as im using a wireless connection... Can you please tell me what this is and who I can do...


it is trying to confirm the ssid which is the name of your wireless network.
if your wireless network IE. is linksys
you will want to type linksys as the ssid.
if your wireless is open it should connect otherwise if wireless is encrypted you will need to select the encryption type wep/or wpa? select wpa if that is what you have and put in the passphase or security key to autheticate to your wireless network.

Where do i enter password to get wifi on my blackberry off home router?


Hi,


Welcome to Fixya. To connect you Blackberry to the Belkin router wirelessly you first need to know the SSID or Network Name and the Network Key or Password

- 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 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank.

- Click on Encryption, You will see there the Network Key or Passphrase. You can personalize the Network Key then confirm the changes try your Blackberry to connect.

- Make sure you connect to your SSID and enter the personalize network key. Network key serves as a password on the network so that no one can access the internet unless they know the password.


Thanks for using Fixya.

My belkin has an orange color and i cant connect to my laptop because it has an red X saying the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements or the network Please help!


Hi lil_dreamer,

The Reason why you have that message is because the Network Key on the Router did not match the Network Key that you've entered on the computer to fix this you need to access your Wireless Settings Page and check the Network Key after that we will remove the same settings on the computer and add a new one.

To access your router just open a Browser then type 192.168.2.1, password is blank. Click on the Security under Wireless. You can change the security type of your rotuer to WPA, WEP or you can also Disable the security. Personalize the Passphrase or Network Key so that you can easily remember it.

Now that we have the information needed lest configure your computer.

- Click on Start or Orb.
- Click on Control Panel.
- Select Network and Sharing Center.
- Click on Manage Wireless Networks on left under Task
- Remove all the Saved Networks on the list.
- Click on Add.
- Select Manually create a network profile.
- Enter the Network Name (SSID), Select the Encryption Type (WPA,WEP,WPA2), Enter you Passphrase or Network Key.
- Put a Tick or Check on Start this connection Manually.
- Click on Connect. Wait for the confirmation and it will work fine now.

Don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
c. Possible wireless interferences


Connecting to the Wireless Network

For Windows XP Service Pack 1:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

For Windows Vista:

1. Click Start then select Connect To.
2. Connect to a network window will show up.
3. Select your wireless network and click Connect.
4. It will ask you for a network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

We hope that the above steps provided would help resolve the problem. If the steps above did not work, we will need to get some additional details from you to be able to assist you further. I have summarized my questions below:

1. Can your computer go online when it is hardwired to the router?
2. What wireless adapter are you using?
3. What is the operating system of your computer?

How do i hook up 2nd computer to router wireless ''g'' wgr614


Hi, if this computer is going to be wired then just connect it to the router using a ethernet cable and can access internet.

For wireless, follow the steps below to check security key:

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.1.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router (User Name = admin Password = password unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the Key that has a black dot before it.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.
In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

Scan for the wieless network on the concerned computer and connect to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
