Hello, welcome to fixya.

If by lost your "network key number" you mean the WEP or WPA key that you setup from the router's settings and you use to connect everytime to that wireless router then I would suggest to push the "reset" button on the device (A small pinhole button usually located in the back or bottom of the device).

Doing this, will reset your wireless device to initial factory settings and so you will know the standard WEP key by then. It is written on a sticker on the device along with the SSID,administration console IP/password and MAC address of the router.
NOTE: Resetting factory settings on your router will cause all settings to dissapear (ports forwarded etc.)and will have to be done from the beginning.

Im pretty sure this will fix this type of problem 98% of the time (unless the nature of the problem is different).

Kind Regards from FixYa.

You are getting that message because the base isn't being seen by the system. It is either not plugged in or needs to be rebooted/power cycled. Check for both power as well as the network connection.

I can't find the pin-code located on the router to make a pass


Are you trying to connect to the wireless network on the windows VISTA / 7 computer?
Sometimes it will ask you for PIN number. you don't need to enter the PIN number.
On the same page you will get the option, I don't want to configure, i want to enter the key.
click on it and it will go to the next step. if you network is secured then it will ask you for the network key.
Enter the key and it will connect you to the network.
If you are trying to add any other wireless device in the network then try to bypass this step and connect to the network manually.

Connected on Wireless but unable to connect on Internet


If not done allready, setup the lan IP address and default gateway in win98 Click MyComputer-ControlPanel-Network-Double Click TCP/IP Adapter for your 3com device-insert LAN info for IP Adress-subnet mask, Gateway and your Internet service providors DNS Addresses info Tab's (3x different Tabs "IP Adress" "Gateway" "DNS Configuration") IP Adress will be at least one number higher than your gateway address and not allready being used by other PC's on your network and gateway address will same as your router interface address subnet mask will be the same for all PC's on your network. For 3com and Netgear routers LAN setup is usually Gateway = 192.168.1.1 Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0 IP Adress = 192.168.1.10(choose alternate number than 10 if allready used by another PC on your network, try to use round numbers, must be a number higher than 1) Once all info is entered click OK (this may trigger a database info update message and task)now your LAN is setup and ready to talk to your network Restart PC and try browsing again. May possibly require reinstallation of the TCP/IP client (you double clicked this to setup your LAN in Win98) or reinstallation of the IIS(Internet Information Services)component found in, Add/Remove Programs-Add/Remove windows components and then try LAN setup again if this does not work first time round
