WAP/WEP password not working


These are the two options for your Router. Don't forget to save your settings

WPA is an upgrade to the WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) standard for securing your wireless network. If you would like to secure your wireless network using WPA, you will need the following:

  • WPA enabled on your Dell TrueMobile 2300 Wireless Broadband Router

  • WPA support for your wireless clients. If you are using a Dell TrueMobile wireless client, you can check for the availability of WPA enabled software update for your wireless client at http://support.dell.com.


  1. Log into the Web configuration of your router at http://my.router (or the default address http://192.168.2.1)
  2. Click on Basic Settings.
  3. Click on Wireless Security.
  4. Click on the Enable Wireless Security checkbox.
  5. Select either WEP or WPA in the Network Authentication list.




To setup WPA
  1. Enter your pre-shared key. This key must match the key that is used by each wireless client computer associated to your router.
  2. Choose a key format. This can be hexadecimal digits (0-9, A-F) or ASCII characters (any key on the keyboard).
  3. WPA Group Rekey Interval specifies how often the key rotates or changes.
  4. WPA Encryption allows you to select 1 of 2 possible encryption methods (TKIP and AES) - choose one that your wireless clients supports.
  5. Click NEXT, then Save and Restart to apply the changes.
  6. Setup the WPA on your wireless clients. Refer to the documentation that accompanied your wireless clients, or your wireless clients on-line help system for information on how to setup WPA.

My T40 will not connect to my wireless network at home. I don't know what to do, please help.


Make sure the wireless card driver is installed and working.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Error code 51330


Hello murz42
This error code is generated when the Wii console is unable to connect to the access point.
First of all, check that your router is compatible with the Wii www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/support/wii_support_5251_8071.html?id=8072
Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into your router using the default IP (if you don´t know this, or how to obtain it, consult your routers manual).
If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP key is a 10-character key consisting of numbers or the letters A - F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, it will consist of 26 characters. The WEP key must be hexadecimal. This means that it consists of the numbers 0-9, the letters A - F. It cannot consist of any special signs or letters. If you are using WPA, the Wii is compatible with the following types: - WPA - PSK (TKIP) - WPA - PSK (AES) - WPA2 - PSK (AES)
Next, check if your router is using MAC filtering. You still need to still be logged into your router. Find the section for MAC filtering, which is usually located under a "security" tab or something similar. If the MAC filtering is "on" or "enabled", enter the Wii´s MAC address to the list of approved MAC addresses. To find this, go to the Wii Channel menu, select "Wii settings" - "Internet" - "Console Settings". The MAC address is displayed on the first line.
Hope this helps. If you require any further help, please don´t hesitate to ask.
Good luck

What is wpa key


The WPA key is the network key assigned to the wireless router for a secure connection. When you installed your router you may have given it a WPA key to prevent others from logging into it.

If you're having issues connecting to it follow these next few steps:

1) Find the installation disc for your router, put it into your computer, and uninstall it.

2) Go through the setup steps to reinstall your router

3) When prompted for your security code to protect your network (WPA key), I advise you to enter something small at the least, say: "0001" or 1Q@w; just do not enter "Password" because it's easily broken.

4) Write down everything you do to customize it; try to keep everything as default. What I do is write it on a sticky note and paste it underneath my desk.

5) Go to your Network Settings on your PS3, let it find your network, and let it automatically go through the steps. Enter your custom WPA key when asked and match all your settings to what you set them as.

6) When this works, what I did was take a small piece of paper and copied all my info to it, folded it, and stored it in the folding lower portion of my PS3 that way if you ever need to do it again, it's right there.

You should be good to go with this.

Otherwise, if you are trying to connect to someone else's network and they have it WPA protected, chances are you might not be able to connect to it.

If you're still having issues please let us know.

Respectfully,

Don
