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.

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.

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.

Securing my wifi


IF you're using the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP), you'll need to start by enabling it at your Wireless Access Point (WAP) first, and how you do that will depend on the WAP in question and how it is normally configured.
When you do this, make sure you make a record of the WEP key you create as you'll need to enter this key on to each of your clients.
Once that's done, WEP is enabled through your wireless drivers in Windows,
I am certain you definitely want to make sure that your network has a WEP network key -- if the key is blank, the network is wide open.
Here's how to configure each Windows XP client: Right-click the connection in the network connecton window and click View Available Wireless Networks to configure the connection. On the Wireless Network Connection dialog box that appears, type a key into the Network Key box, and again into the Confirm Network Key box. (it is usually 10 letters/numbers in length)
good luck, hope this helps please leave rating.

Possible reason why your computer is not getting online wirelessly is because the wireless settings on the router and the wireless settings on your computer do not match. Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

A. Checking the Wireless Settings of the Router

Note: You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

1. Open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
2. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
3. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it doesn't take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you can't remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

4. When the setup page opens, click on the Wireless Settings under Setup and take note of the SSID.
5. You may also change the wireless channel here. We suggest channels 1, 6 and 11.
6. At the bottom of the page, look for the Security Options. If in case that the security is set to WEP or WPA-PSK, we have to enter the same wireless security on all wireless PCs. To make sure of the key, we can try modifying the security. Please refer to the following:

For WEP: Select Key 1 and enter 10 hexadecimal digits (0-9 and A-F) on the empty box beside it. Then, click on Apply.

For WPA-PSK: Enter an alphanumeric key (minimum of 8 characters) on the Passphrase box and click on Apply.

Note: The Key and Passphrase are case-sensitive.

7. On the left pane, please scroll down and click on Wireless Settings under Advanced. Please make sure that the boxes for Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable SSID Broadcast are checked.
8. Click on the Setup Access List button and uncheck the box Turn Access Control On.
9. Click the Apply button.

B. 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.
