Try following the directions detailed below in two separate how to:

It is looking for a password (WiFi Network Key) You have to double click on the little computer icon down in the right tool bar area, the one with the two side radiating arcs, and possibly has a small red X under it. The red X indicates that it is NOT connected. When you double click on that icon a window called RT28701 opens up, then you click on Wireless Information tab, then you cursor down to the name of your WiFi and high light it and click the connect box. Then another window opens up called Network Properties. Uncheck "The key is provided automatically" box. This will allow you to type in your "Network Key", the password that protects your network from outsiders. This "KEY" was set up when you installed the router on your server computer. If this does not work at first, turn the machine over on it's back and using a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonally from the right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy of everything including the WiFi RT28701 driver.

sometimes this driver gets confused. See my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing


Additional Information


When I try to sign on with the red X showing, I get "The page cannot be displayed If I then double click on the icon down in the right corner I elucidated above, RT28701 opens up to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with all zeros in the IP address field, and Subnet Mask, with no entries in the default gateway. That is a clue to me that the auto sign on has not found a viable network or needs something else. If I then click on Wireless Information tab, The list of available networks appear in the box. The machine keeps trying to associate my previous entered name site with my prefered site and tells me the signal is good, but it cannot link up. This is a signal to me that it has lost my Network Key or that the software has failed or both. I then click on advance and delete my prefered network and hit OK, this will force the software to ask me for my network again, and notice that the prefered is missing. I click on the name of my network again and then hit connect., then the Wireless Network properties window opens up and I can insert my Network Key again after I uncheck the "The key is provided automatically" box. I enter the key and hit the OK button. I still do not get a connection, so I reboot the machine, and wait for about 30 seconds and the machine synchs up because the little RED X under the icon has disappeared. Now the machine will hook to the internet as long as I want to, but sometimes when I turn the machine on it will not synch, so I go through the above sequence again. The secret is once you have entered your key and ask for the machine to synch up you have to reboot. Why? I do not exactly know, but I suspect that the WiFi driver looses it

The Pin code for a router is typically found below or on the back of a router. Just look for something that says SSID: xxx then right below that it should say PIN: xxxx.

You would connect a laptop from Canada the same way as one from the US. You want to make sure the wireless card is turned on and check for wireless networks. Once you have found your network select it make sure you type the password correctly.

The router will not configure on my pc. i keep getting error code 312. it says cannot find network adapter.


Confusing!

The Router is an "external" piece of hardware, outside of your computer,
while the "network adapter" usually is an "internal" piece of hardware, inside your computer.

If Windows has not loaded the device-driver for your specific network adapter, then there is no way for Windows to communicate THROUGH the (non-functioning) network adapter to the external router.

So:
click Start
click Control Panel
click Classic View
click System
click Hardware
click Device Manager
click the '+' to th left of Network Adapters

If there is nothing listed, then Windows has not "found" your network adapter. If there is a yellow "mark" on the network adapter, then the device-driver for the network adapter has a problem.

Take your computer to a "geeky" friend, or to a qualified technician, in order to install the correct device-driver for your specific manufacturer and model of computer.

My internet keeps dro, i have installed filters ,


There is one case where everything is fine but still connection drops too often.---
This happens when the network type of your laptop is "public" as ublic networks are less secure, routers usually drop connections after sme time. Change the network type to "private". This should solve your problem. There is one more setting in your router where is says something like "automatically login when disconnected". Selecting this option allows automatically login to ISP when connection is dropped from ISP temporarily.

If network connectivity itself is the problem then you can debug followingly.

Step-1:
If ISP company says everything is fine from their side, then you need to check your router. To confirm this first connect the wall outlet of ISP to your laptop and check network connectivity. If there is problem, then ISP has to fix it.

Step-2:
If connection works fine then ISP is fine and you need to check your router settings. Now check network connectivity by connecting the laptop to the router through a ethernet wire. If the network does not work then your router hardware could be wrong and may need servicing or replacement. If this works fine then go to step-3.

Step-3:
Try resetting your router by using a paperclip. Usually the reset button can be found at the backside of your router. This will reset all the settings and there by making as good as a fresh one. Try to access internet from a place close to router where router signal is strong.
Change authentication and other network settings of your router to connect to ISP. Now network should work fine. Ensure that you set router password to avoid unauthorized access to your router by others.

My wireless network gets dropped


HI! that is correct.. your device wont connect bcoz you change the wep, ssid name etc on the router.. if the security settings is change from the router and your wireless devices have the old settings it wont work and it will not connect.. you need to enter the new wep, ssid name etc to the wireless devices in order to connect to the wireless network..
