Well truth is you dont need to do that, every todays antivirus/firewall and specially microsoft software "VISTA" will tell you that many things are not secure. You just keep in mind that every enterprise has to advice you just to avoid you to sue them if you have problems, I mean: if you get hacked or a virus or anything gets into your system and cause you a problem nobody will do a thing but if it happens to a big enterprise, like a bank or some like that, they could blaim the soft about it and thats why the are just "warning" you. The other truth is that if you dont know about security you cant do a damn thing to secure your computer, specially if you are using windows, which is not secure at all. Once you get into the net with microsoft software, you are on your own. So here is the BEST thing to do in your case. Get rid of any antivirus, firewalls, specially windows firewall, antispam or antispy sofware in your computer, then BUY Kaspersky`s last version, INTERNET SECURITY preferred, its cheaper than cheap, like less than 40 dollars a year, install and upgrade that soft as it tell you and youre done! You dont need nothing else than your Windows, Kaspersky and being carefull of what you are going to download. Even better if you can take your PC to a technician and ask hime/her to partition your HD and install the OS in the first partitions and lets a partition JUST AND ONLY for your personal data, so your data wont be the primary target of viruses.

Sory, I do not want to disrespect you, but if you ask a question like this one, better to do that I told you than trying to configure other stuff... because you would loose a lot of time and win nothing. A lot of knowledge is required to really secure a system... thats why they make soft like kaspersky, the best way for a standard/normal user to have things "under control".

My warning is that windows firewall will send a message almost with every new thing, so you just do what you need to do, forget about those warnings and a second thing is that karpersky could also tell you, (once you try connect a new internet service, lan, router, etc) that that connection is not secure or warnings like that, in kaspersky case you will need to choose TRUSTED NETWORK or ALLOW, when it prompts you to choose if you want to connect to that net or not, otherwise kaspersky will block your connections and you wont be able to navigate or chat.

Hope to be usefull for you, this is the best way I know for standard users. G luck sincerely

How do i connect to a wireless network?


Hi,


If you have a laptop, you can see a list of available wireless networks, and then connect to one of those networks, no matter where you are. The wireless networks appear only if your computer has a wireless network adapter and driver installed and the adapter is enabled.


To view and connect to available wireless networks

  1. Open Connect to a Network by clicking the network icon (eff2d36c-9e0d-4d1a-9859-3af14fa4ccfc.jpg or da12251d-1e9a-4032-afae-009876c6c5a3.jpg) in the notification area.

  2. In the list of available wireless networks, click a network, and then click Connect.

    Some networks require a network security key or passphrase. To connect to one of those networks, ask your network administrator or Internet service provider (ISP) for the security key or passphrase.

Whenever possible, you should connect to security-enabled wireless networks. If you do connect to a network that's not secure, be aware that someone with the right tools can see everything that you do, including the websites you visit, the documents you work on, and the user names and passwords that you use

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Win xp desktop connected to wrt54gs router wants laptop running win 7 to connect wirelessly


We need to know the wireless settings on your router before configuring the laptop.

To check the wireless settings, access the setup page of the router by using the desktop's internet browser. In the address bar, type 192.168.1.1.

Default login is: leave the username blank, then the password is admin.

Once you are in the setup page, go to the Wireless tab.

Take note of the wireless network name (SSID).

Then go to the Wireless Security tab. Take note of the wireless security settings and the network key (if wireless security is enabled).

On your laptop, in the lower right corner of your screen you will see an icon that looks like this moz-screenshot-1.jpgc147bd5.png.

Click the icon and you will see a list of available networks.

Select the SSID of your router then click connect.

If the wireless security is enabled, it will ask for the security key. Type the wireless network key, then click ok.

It will then connect wirelessly.

Good luck!

My password is "wrong' whenever I try to connect on my laptop


That's firmware problem on your router. Try to download the latest firmware for you router from www.linksys.com/download then load the latest firmware. After successfully updated the firmware, you need to hard reset the router by pressing the reset button for 20 seconds then unplug the power for 10 seconds and plug it back in. You will need to reconfigure the wireless settings.

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Reinsalled windows xp on toshiba notebook -- now wireless won't work.


Hi Matt,

When you try to connect wirelessly to your network did get any pop up message like asking you for a network key WPA/WEP? if your wireless network is security enabled then you need to enter the security settings again on the computer since you re-installed XP the security settings that was saved previously was also wiped out.
May I know the exact model number of wireless router/access point that your trying to connect your laptop so that I can provide you with instructions on how to retrieve the security key.

New HP laptop will not connect to wireless secure network


Problem solved. I disabled the security on my network. I connected the new laptop to the unsecure network. I saved the settings on the laptop for the unsecure network. I rebooted the laptop. I re-enabled security on the router. I tried to connect to the network. I got an error on the laptop saying the network saved settings did not match. I modified the settings to a secure network on the laptop and saved the 128 bit key. Rebooted everything. All works fine now.

Wireless connection


You will need to speak to the person in charge of the security enabled network, and obtain the type of wireless security (WEP or WPA) and the password.

You should also determine what security types are supported by your own laptop's wireless connection. If it is an older one, it may only support WEP, and you will be unable to connect to any WPA protected networks.
