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, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

How to install my router for wireless internet on my laptop.


1. Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.

2. Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.

3. Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.

4. Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.

5. Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.

6. Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.

7. Click on "Properties."

8. Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.

9. Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Available Networks" section.

10. Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."

11. Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.

12. Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

Thanks.
Have great day.

    Security key


    Use an Ethernet cable to connect your desktop/laptop to one of the LAN ports on the router. Launch Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router. Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to enter an SSID, enable 'WPA' encryption, and to set a security-key or password or pass-phrase.

    Running install disc, says does not support operating system


    Are you trying to set up router ?
    You can set up your router manually, without the CD.
    Make sure that your computer is able to go online directly through the modem.
    If your computer is able to go online through the modem, that means the modem is working fine.
    You will need to connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
    open the set up page of the router and change the settings of the router according to the ISP.

    The wireless router can be configured without a CD by using the IE browser.

    To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

    To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
    1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
    2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address. (http://192.168.0.1)
    3. Enter the router setup, login and password (default login = admin

    and the default PW = password)
    4. Change the admin password
    5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
    6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
    7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
    8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
    9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
    10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

    Aspire one does not have a CD/DVDROM however you can use another computer to be able to setup your router. You can probably ask a friend to use his/her laptop that has a CD/DVD ROM. After setting up the router, you can connect your Acer Aspire by letting it detect the wireless signal and connecting to your router wirelessly.

    **You can also try to insert the installer disc on another PC and copy all the contents of the CD/DVD installer of the Netgear into a USB flash Drive. Plug the USB flash Drive into your Acer then run the setup file inside and follow the instructions.

    Try resetting your IP address:
    The laptop may be trying to use the IP address from the old router.

    1) Click Start (assuming Windows 2000, XP, or Vista)
    2) Click Run
    3) Type in CMD
    This will take you to a black command box
    4) Type in: ipconfig/release
    The chart should show your IP address as 0.0.0.0
    Once this has happened, proceed to step 5
    5) Type in: ipconfig/renew
    You should now see a new IP address listed.

    Also note that you need to set up your network key (assuming that you are using one) on both the router and laptop.
    Make sure that your router is set up to perform as DHCP server.
