Did you enter the security key (password)? It may be your laptop? Try resetting the D-Link to default settings and connecting to the laptop. They reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. Write down the info for future use. Here's a user Manual: http://www.dlink.com/uk/en/home-solutions/connect/routers/dir-600-wireless-n-150-home-router

Hi,

The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies a 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. The SSID is a key which is set by the wireless network administrator. You must know the SSID to connect to a 802.11 wireless network. However, the SSID can be discovered by network sniffing/scanning. By default, the SSID is part of the packet header for every packet sent over the WLAN.

SSID access points continuously broadcast radio signals which are received by client machines if enabled. Based on the automatic or manual configuration, the client can connect to the access point. A SSID is generally 32 bit long, but when displayed to the user, it is projected into a human readable ASCII format. Multiple access points can possibly share same SSID if they are for the same wireless network. Many wireless access points support broadcasting multiple SSIDs, permitting the formation of Virtual Access Points. Such Virtual Access Points partition a single physical access point into many logical access points, each of which can have a special set of security and network settings.
SSID Security Issues

Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.

ssid example SSID
Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".

Every time a client connects to the wireless network, the SSID is communicated in plain text format, which can easily be sniffed by eavesdropper using sniffing applications like Kismet. Hence, additional security techniques are required to be implemented in order to enhance the wireless security.

Get stuck changing net settings, ie ssid...


if your home is set up with wireless modem or router and your computers are connected wirelessly its pretty simple to set up. more likely you or someone who set it up probably set it up securely meaning with security key and password. So you do have to know few things about your home network. like what is the name of your home network (SSID). the security setting of your home network. and finally the password of your network. if you don't know these things about your home network you will not be able to get connected wirelessly. but if you do have these info on hand read along....

JUST MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE A WIRELESS HOME NETWORK... it definitely wont work if you don't have a wireless setup and u are trying to connect wirelessly. people overlook this no brainer.

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration2_bing.gif"
5) wireless

from this point on you need to know few things about your network.....

6) scan -- once scanned it'll give you other wirelss access point for you home network and some other near your home along with few information such as SSID (which is what you set your network to be -- i.e. "the jones" or "linksys" or "summer home" or "my connection" etc etc) SECURITY (this is the password you set up your network with) SIGNAL STRENGHT (usually your network will be the strongest among your neighbors since you are closer to your router)
7) highlight your network and press x . (you should know what it is) selecting on the other network will probably not do you any good since it'll probably be all locked with password and such and so should yours be.
8) SSID which means service set identifier basically mean the name of your network. if your home network is set up with security and password your home network will not show up under SSID (this is one of the things you need to know about your home network. if you don't know ask the person who set up your home network)
9) on WLAN SECURITY SETTING2_bing.gif page (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up) -- most people i deal with have a WPA-PSK / WPA2-PSK security password yours may be different so choose the one that you used.
10) WPA KEY - which basically means password. input the password you used to set up your home network (this is another thing you should know about your home network or ask the person who set it up)
**it'll give you "checking network configuration"
11) if you input all the correct info you should get the "setting list" screen
12) press "X" to save the setting
13) do the connection test and if all things were entered correctly you should have success.

all this seems complicated just reading but if you follow it step by step its easy. you just need to know the name of your home network, the home network security setting, and the password of your home network.

on the other hand if you are setting up a wired connection it makes it a whole lot simpler. you don't need to know your network name, security key, and password.

make sure you have the ethernet cable plugged in to your ps3 and to your modem or router

1) go to Settings
2) Network Settings
3) Internet Connection Setting. confirm on "O.K."
4) easy *it may or may not give you a message reading "checking network configuration2_bing.gif"
5) wired
6) auto-detect
7) automatic -- for the IP address setting
8) do not set
8) automatic -- DNS setting
9) automatic -- MTU
10) do not set -- PROXY SERVER
11) ENABLE -- UPNP
save connection setting
test connection

if your home network is set up and u got the ps3 connected it should work

Dell axim x51 will connect to to wifi hotspot i need detailed instructions to get it to work


Hi, follow the steps found in your owners manual. That can be downloaded at this link.
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/aximx51/en/om/om_en.pdf

Using Wi-Fi (802.11b)
Wi-Fi provides your device access to WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network.)
Short for wireless fidelity, Wi-Fi refers to any type of 802.11 network,
whether 802.11b, 802.11a, or dual-band. Wi-Fi certified products from
different manufacturers are interoperable.
NOTE: Mid and High configurations of the Axim have Wi-Fi 802.11b built in and the
drivers factory installed. For a Low configuration device, you must purchase the
802.11b SD card, insert it in your device, and load the drivers.
NOTE: The default Wireless Networking Client utility for your device is the
Dell WLAN utility. The following configuration steps are for the Dell WLAN utility.
Configure wireless networking for your device in one of the following
scenarios:
• Network Card is set up
• Wireless Network is broadcasting SSID
• Wireless Network is not broadcasting SSID
If the Network Card is Set Up
Normally the internal wireless card is already set up. There are times when
you must choose the network card. On the Axim X51/X51v configurations
that have built-in wireless, the network card is associated with the enabled
wireless. If wireless is not enabled or you are using a socket card for
wireless connection, then choose the network card:
1 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
2 Tap Network Cards.
3 Choose either Internet or Work from the menu.
4 Choose the network card to connect to the network. For the
Axim X51/X51v with built-in wireless, choose Dell Axim X51/X51v
WLAN Wireless Adapter.
5 Choose whether the network card assigns an IP address or receives an
IP address automatically.
6 Enter the Server IP addresses if required and tap OK.
If the Wireless Network is Broadcasting SSID
1 Press the wireless button to enable wireless capability. The green LED
in the right top corner of the device indicates that the wireless
is functional.
2 Tap Start → Settings → Connections.
3 To add, edit, or delete a profile, select the corresponding action and
tap Network Cards.
4 In the Configure Wireless Networks window, select one of the available
network names and tap OK.

If the Wireless Network is Not Broadcasting SSID
The Configure Wireless Networks window only shows wireless networks
that broadcast a Network Name (SSID) and those that have been added.
Add the network if it is not listed. Contact your network administrator for
the following information:
• SSID (network name)
• Authentication
• Data Encryption
• Keys (if the key is not provided automatically)
• Log in if necessary
To configure the wireless network:
1 From the Configure Wireless Networks window, tap Add New.
2 Provide the Network Name (SSID).
3 Select either Internet or Work in the Connects To box.
• Selecting Internet allows you to connect to your network but you
will have to manually start a VPN connection, if needed.
• Selecting Work automatically starts a VPN connection any time
you connect to the network.
• If you are having trouble connecting to your network, change the
Connects To box to Internet.
4 Tap the Network Key tab.
5 Enter the Authentication and Data Encryption information. If a key is
required, enter the network key.
6 Select the 802.1x tab.
7 The Authentication and Data Encryption chosen on the previous
screen determines whether this screen is available. If available choose
the EAP type used on the network.
8 Tap OK.
9 If more than one network is listed, tap and hold the stylus on the
network name you want to connect to. A pop-up menu appears.
Tap Connect. After a few seconds you should see Connected next to
the wireless network you selected.
Thank you,
lee

My problem is that i cant figure out why i cant get internet on my D-Link router and i cant figure out how to scan it?


Scan for network will not work because of 2 reason

some times the Software utility causes the Problems

start - run - msconfig .. stop the services

but check the following ..



Check the Following

1) Wireless Switch of the Laptop is off (Wifi is Off)
it is located somewhere on the edge of the laptops
or Fn+F2 might turn the switch ON and OFF
2) The setting required to configure wireless connection

Check the following steps


Windows XP
1. Click on the Start Menu, and click on Control Panel.
2.Find and double-click “Network Connections” to open up the list ofconnections that your 3. computer uses to connect to the internet.
4. Right click “Wireless Network Connection” and select “Properties”.
5. Go to the “Wireless Networks” Tab
6. Check “Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings”, if it isn't already.
7. Click “Add” to add a wireless profile.
* Enter in the Network name (SSID). (It was your desired SSID from Step 6 ).
* Uncheck the box “The key is provided for me automatically”.
* Put in the “Key 1” code from Step 7 into “Network key” and “Confirm network key”.
* Push “OK”
# Open Internet Explorer (with the computer connected to the Router)
# Enter 192.168.1.1 into the Address Bar, push Enter
# Leave the User Name field blank
# Under the password field enter “admin”
# Click “OK”

# Click “Wireless”
# Click “Basic Wireless Settings”
# Enter a desired name into the “Wireless Network Name (SSID)” field
# Write down your Wireless Network SSID, it will be used for later.

For WEP:

* Click “Wireless”
* Click “Wireless Security”
* Select “WEP” in the “Security Mode” field
* Bubble “1” under the “Default Transmit Key” field

Ive run the install disk for the dlink adaptor but i still cant connect. it wants me to enter the ssid but it says the ssid doesnt exist. what else am i meant to be doing to get my laptop onto a wireless...


Hello,
Your adapter cannot connect i
1. f there is no wireless networks to connect to
2. If there are networks around but they hide their SSID (some thing like a name or call letters for a radio)
3. If the power signal received is weak
4. If there are security measures enforced on the network that prevent non authorized.

If it is your nework you are trying to connect to you must configure your router to allow your computer access to your network and through your network to the Internet.
Hope it helps.

Netgear WGR814v2 does not see my ASUS 1005HA-P netbook, but the netbook sees the the Netgear wireless network but cannot connect .


To connect into your own Netgear router, you need to configure the wireless card with your router's wireless configuration settings, eg.the SSID and encryption settings. Check your router manual on how to configure the router or go to the Netgear WEB site to download this info.
To configure the Netgear router for wireless you need to connect a LAN cable from the laptop to the router and run your browser with the configuration IP address. for Netgear type the URL address ;-
http://192.168.0.1
the login = admin PW = password
Then configure the SSID and encryption, record this info so you can configure the wireless card with the same settings.

You can also connect to the Internet by using a LAN cable and plug it into the Netgear router without a wireless connection.

DO NOT REMEMBER SSID NAME GIVEN TO ROUTER WRT54GS---LOST PRINTED COPY OF SET-UP. HOW CAN I REPRINT OR JUST FIND OUT INFO


You can see the SSID name from one of your wireless computer that is already connected to the wireless network. Just point your name over the wireless little computer icon down at bottom right hand by the time. It will say there "Wireless Network Connection, Connected to "name of the network". That "name of the network" is the wireless signal name like "Linksys" or whatever name you gave to your network when you setup the router. That's the SSID name as well. Wireless Network Name = SSID.
