Hello THere. What numbers do you need? If you are trying to connect your new computer to the router via wireless then you need to get the wireless settings of your router such as the Network name and encryption(if any).

In your Linksys router, you may try to access the setup page by using the default IP, , Type in admin on the password, leave the username blank.

GO to the wireless tab to check your settings.

Hope this helps or you may post more clarifications for your problem.

Can i connect new pc to old connection

You simply need to disconnect old computer from the network and connect the new one.
Are you trying to connect wired computer or wireless?

If you are trying to connect a wired computer then you don't need to do anything.
Just take out the Ethernet cable from the old computer and connect it to the new computer.

If you are connecting a wireless computer to the network then make sure that you have all the settings of your wireless router.
If your wireless network is secured then you should know the correct network key.
What is the operating system on your computer?

I will suggest you a website " The Router Setup " which may help you connect your new computer to the old wireless network.

My computer is connecting via The Crazies...whatever that is! I don't have or remember my security code for ATT 2Wire connection. Where did The Crazies come from and do I want to get rid of it?

It sounds like "The Crazies" is a wireless network near you that someone had used to connect to the internet using your computer. To connect to your own network, look under the router/modem itself near the barcode. There should be a few sets of numbers there. You'll want to enter the code in that is in brackets [ ] (should be under the serial number) into your computer when connecting to your network. That should do it, but let me know if you have any other questions!

Got new work laptop. Need WEP key to set up wireless so can work for home. Don't know how to find the key

Hi kaa1960,

To be able to get you Network key you will need to get in the Router settings page.

  • Firs you will need an Ethernet cable to connect you computer to the Router.
  • Once you have the cable and that the Router is connected to the Compute you will need to open IE or Firefox.
  • Now on your Browser on the Address bar you will need to type in then press Enter this should open up a windows asking for a user name and password.
  • For the User Name type in Admin and for the Password leave it Blank or it can be the other way around leave the User name Blank and the password admin.
  • this should open the Linksys setting page click the Wireless Tab or Link then the network mode or radio should be enabled to get wireless working on your Linksys Router.
  • Also third i where you can get the WEP key of your Router you may also change that if your wish to WEP can only be a 10 numerical password most Internet service providers use the phone numbers of the customer as the WEP key.
I hope that this helps.

Thank you for choosing FIxya,

We tried to add another computer to our network and in doing so we inserted the pin number to our router for the ssid and our network dropped everything. Now neither one of us can get on line.

You can change the wireless network set up on the computer's network card to reflect the new SSID, or go into the router's setup page by connecting a network cable between a computer and the router. You might have to remove or disable the wireless card on that computer first.

To do the first suggestion, start the Windows Wireless Network Configuration program - or the one included with and used to set up the card initially. Look for the SSID setting and make the changes needed to reflect the current SSID used.

To do the second, connect a computer to the one of router's LAN ports (or use one that is already connected). Access the router's "setup page" by opening IE or whatever browser you use and enter the IP address of the router. This is usually, or Do not put "www" in front of the numbers.. just the numbers and decimal points is needed (if it comes up "" that's ok). Supply the username and password and look for Wireless Settings and change the SSID to what the computers are expecting to see.

If you can't do any of these steps, dues to lost passwords, etc. a factory reset will be needed to performed. Follow instructions included with the router as done when new.

Good luck!

I got a new laptop and I want to connect to wireless I have a Netgear router. When I try to connect it wants a network key. How do I find that?


I think you are able to go online with other computers so you simply need to follow the steps below to solve your concern:

a. you need to be on your computer which is working on the internet, Open the internet explorer
b. type in you can type
, it will prompt you for user name and password, the user name will be 'admin' and password will be 'password', make sure you type it in small case
c.On the left hand side their is blue coloum and under the heading of Setup the third option will be wireless settings and their you can see the password of your wireless network as key 1 or if it mention as passphrase so it will be like '******', so you have to change teh wireless settings.
d. before you change the settings you make sure you are not doing all these steps on wireless computer if yes before you go further connect your computer wired
e. Once its done , Now you can change the wireless settings...., AS IMAGE BELOW

1. you need to chnage the wireless network name
2. CHANNEL you need to chnage it to 11 and if its 11 change it to 06
3. MODE should be b&g , i would suggest you WEP and in key 1 you can type any 10 digit number like you phone number or you can use the same number i have mention in that screen shot
5. Click on apply and then try to connect with your wireless laptop on which you will able to see your network name.
6. Try to connect with that network , it will prompt you for password, you need to type the 10 digit code you mentioned in Key1 option on that page.

I think by follow all these steps you will able to connect with your new laptop and if you change any wireless settings make sure you need to reconnect all other wireless computers again so that all the computers at your place work fine on new wireless network
