All of a sudden, I can't connect to the internet. My network connection is asking for a security key. I have never had to do that before & I have no idea what it is. Please help.


Someone nearby may have created a new wifi network, and your computer is trying to gain access to it. The first thing to do is to verify that you are indeed trying to connect to your own wifi network by checking the SSID of the network. Or, you can physically move closer to your wifi router and see if you can then connect as expected.

If you're still having trouble after that - you'll need to access your router's setup pages via a computer that has a network cable connected between it and one of the LAN ports on the router. Login as usual with your username & password credentials and then change the SSID, encryption and the username & password information. If you are unable to login, then it is very possible that the person(s) that took over your wifi have also attempted to lock you out of it. You'll have to consult your router's manual to learn how to perform a hardware based factory reset. Once this has been done, you'll need to set up your variables for your network again. Make sure you secure the wifi to prevent unauthorized access again. This mean using WPA instead of the comparably very weak WEP security AND then locking down access to the setup page with a new username and password.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply. Thanks.

Hi I got my router set up on my personal desktop computer and laptop also to my wii, now I was trying to get it to locate my blueray dvd player so I could stream movies to my sons room but for the life of...


You should open the setup menu on the blue-ray player, and look for something along the lines of Wireless or internet settings. It may be under the general settings tab. Then Make sure that it is set to DHCP for assigning an address. It may also say something like automatic or manual for getting an IP address, go with Auto. It should also give you the option to start scanning for a wireless access point. Run the scan, and if you see your wireless router's SSID or name, select that. If you have security enabled on your router, you will need the wireless password or Key. Once that has been entered, it should perform a connectivity test. If all goes well, you will be streaming content in no time. Hope this was helpful to you.

My Belkin Play N600 won't connect to my Blu Ray player????


Why is Everybody talking about changing the SSID and password? There is no need for that. That is such a wast of time. But yes, if taking the action restoring the router with a hard reset yes you can configure the SSID and password of your choice. But if you are aware of your WiFi SSID and password (and I'm sure you do) then it is not necessary. As for this WiFi complication, you have to consider how your WIFi home network is set up. First off, WiFi is similar to a cordless phone connection. Farther you are away from the receiver the weaker the connection will get.. And just like a cordless phone connection, WiFi uses the same radio frequency 2.4GHz. connection. Also, devices such as Blue Ray, PS3, PS4, and X Box 360, require configuring the port forward settings to enable full features as to what the device can offer. Reason for this, your ISP disables certain ports due to security measures and vulnerability upon home network use. No need to worry about security issues because when dealing with these devices which require extra open ports, we configure that device only to have the access of those needed ports. Other than that, will also consider how many networks reside within your area with how many neighbors have there own home 2.4GHz home networks. Reason for that being is due to the 2.4GHz limited amount of channel frequencies which is only 11 channels. Your routers 2.4GHz radio wave will occupy 1 out of any of those 11 channels Fq Cyz and because of this there can be various amounts of other 2.4Ghz networks using the same channel which causes wifi connection problems for all networks smothering one another within the same channel. Due to that fact, the 5GHz Wifi Connection has been introduced but the disadvantage to that connection is how limited the distance you have to be as well how most devices are not compatible with the 5Ghz connection which does not detect the signal. So by fact, WiFi is a very vulnerable connection. The only connection that is reliable is ethernet (Direct connect).
As for your Blue ray not connecting, make sure that blue ray can detect the SSID your home network is broadcasting. Also consider how far the router is from your BR. If you see your ssid within the settings while you are attempting to connect to WIFI, it should display a signal and if it shows weak, you may have to make a couple of adjustments as to move your router or blue ray closer to one another or consider a repeater to enhance the WiFi connection within your home. If you need a tech to help please call tech support with your ISP.

Airport Extreme, Mac Cube and proposed Blue Ray /WIFI


Yes, you just need to connect the Airport to the modem. That way, the Airport will fetch the internet connection and distribute it to all your WiFi enabled device. You don't need any other hardware. You just need to configure the airport using your Mac computer.
Here's a quick setup guide from Apple.com:
