What version of windows are you using, If your using any windows version you will need to save the network key along with the name of the network in the wireless properties in the network tab or (network and sharing center if using vista) or where it displays all wireless networks broadcasted you should be able to right click on the name of the network your connecting to and do the same that way. You also need to make sure when you connected the network that you checked the boxes that said to remember network key and remember network name.

Not connecting to the internet


Router ?

Problems authenticating a router in a computer is a common problem when installing a router or if your internet service gets disrupted. It is easy to solve and only requires a few steps to fix. A router forwards data from a computer to a computer network. The network can be between multiple computers, such as one would need in an office. The network can also, and more usually in households, used for connecting to the internet. Open "System Preferences" in the Applications folder in Finder. Open "Network" under "Internet and Wireless." Click "Advanced" and select "TCP/IP." Select "Renew DHCP License" and click ok. Attempt to connect to the internet. If the internet is still not connecting, restart the router and try the steps again. b> For non-Macs b> Open "Wireless Network Connection" from the wireless tab at the bottom of the screen. Select "Change Advanced Settings." Choose the "Wireless Networks" tab. Choose the wireless network you want to connect to and select the "Properties" button. Under the "Association" tab, make sure the Network Authentication has the proper security level chosen. Enter your network key if your security code is anything other than "Open" or "Shared." Select OK and try to connect. Go Back to "Wireless Networks" tab -> "Properties" and click on "Authentication" tab and un-select the "Enable authentication for the network" selection if the network key is still not authenticating the router. Select OK and try to connect.
Hope this helps.

Computer says,"connected to network signal strength excellent", but I cannot connect to internet


Can you connect to the Internet using the LAN cable?
Have you configured the wireless card in your laptop with the router's wireless settings?

Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Acer doesn't connect to protected wireless internet


It looks like you've keyed it in once, but you keyed it in wrong, so the system thinks the security key is there.

Which Operating System?

You can try connecting to another secured network and see if it asks for a security code, then try going back to your network.

Try getting to the security code by going to the wireless network connection and highlighting your network then click properties.

Hi, I am trying to get my new Acer up and running. It will not connect to the internet. It is asking me to type in the network security key. I have no idea what it is asking for. Please help.


Its the password for your network. If your trying to use someone elses network you need to ask them. If it yours then you should know your security password for your network.

I want to connect my laptop to the wireless network i have found network but it is asking for akey where do i find it and what is it?


A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks. WEP keys allow a group of devices on a local network (such as a home network) to exchange encoded messages with each other while hiding the contents of the messages from easy viewing by outsiders.

Search your ISP (Internet Service Provider) into the list of Available Wireless networks and connect it.If it still asks for the key then you need to call up the ISP for the key. Because they provide you wih the key whe you purchase internet connection from them.

My eee pc 900 series wont conect to internet


Your computer is asking for the WEP key which is the security key setup at installation so anyone who wants to enter your network must know the password. Check the simple things first, like your CAPs Lock key is off, Num Lock key is off, double check you are typing in the correct password. You can change the WEP key with the software that came with the wireless installation.
