Calling the router maker only leads to more headaches and money spend on no help whatsoever. I know from lots of experience myself.

    Also, one other thing to do is scan for virus, Trojan, spyware, adware. I've seen it many times in computers at the tech shop I work at. Customers come in with infect machine beyond any repair and we get them clean out, have them work like new out of the box.

What is the model number fo your router? If you know how to access your router setup page using a computer wired to the router you can change all the wireless settings there like the SSID or wireless network name and disable again the wireless security.. or if you want someone to walk you through with that you can call your router manufacturer so they can alos help with your concern...

Good luck......

My Lynksys WRT54G has suddenly switched my wireless connection to a generic unsecured connection and away from my own setup. How do I fix this?


Please Enter the ip address of the router in internet explorer and go to wireless security. In that window we can change the the security and can give security pin.

My Router works only if I do not put security password on it.


The router works only if the network is unsecured.
When you secure the wireless network , make sure that you will change the wireless network name also. Because if you change the wireless security and if you keep the same network name then your computer will try to connect to the same network name with the old unsecured settings saved on the computer.
Try to change the SSID ( network name ) and security to WPA, check if that works.
If that doesn't work then I believe you will need to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the router.

Laptop stopped connecting via wifi to home network.


The wireless settings in the Belkin has been setup with encryption.
You can restore the Belkin back to the factory default by powering up the Belkin and press the RESET button for 7 secs.
It is not wise to leave your wireless router unsecured, anyone can access your network and Internet connection and use up your allocated download limit. Once you exceed your download limit you could be slug with addition charges - this depends upon your contract with your ISP.

My Ps3 network isnt working


You're getting a weak signal from the router. Several things can cause this problem, including interference from other devices. Make sure the PS3 is not located too far from the router.
Also, make sure you're on a secured network. I've noticed when I reset my router to the default settings (unsecure) the connection to my computer that's hooked up to the wireless network turns on and off constantly. This doesn't happen when I secure the network.

Secured connection is gone and all we have is Linksys unsecured


Next time try unplugging the router for 30-60 seconds then plug it back in. Should resolve minor glitches like this one.

DI-524 and VISTA: impossible to configure WPA PSK (AES)


WPA2 pre-share key must consist between 8 to 63 Ascii characters.

But you have spaces in the sentence the car is black.

Space is not a ascii character. Did you try without spaces?

Cannot get wireless connection through router


Hi MistiShay,

You did mention that it was working fine for several weeks suddenly your wireless computers stopped functioning and your getting a message that the security key in incorrect. This only means that its either your entering the wrong encryption key or someone changed the previous security key to something else. By the way what type of wireless security did you configured on the router initially was it WEP or WPA, if its WEP(64 or 128 bit) and your using a bulit-in wireless adapter on your laptop you need the default WEP key because the passphrase only works with a Netgear WLAN Utility.

Know if your having difficulties accessing the setup page of the router you may need to check on your browser settings, turn off the pop up blocker and firewall temporarily, also try another computer. Now if all fails you may need to press that reset button on your router and set it up again.

Wireless router security


http://192.168.2.1 from a connected pc (use a cable you dont want to change settings over wireless and not be able to change it back) will start the router web interface, where you can read the help screens on how to, then set the router to one of several secure modes that it supports

The wizards are pretty good

Connecting to secure network


when enabling wireless security the router and adapter must be both be configured and configured in a fashion that both support. If you need help provide confirmation of your wireless router's manufacturer and model and the same information for any wireless adapters or computers with built-in wireless adapters to be wirelessly connected.

This will allow us to determine the common security options for all wireless devices you have.
