Use MAC Filtering. I had a prob with power failures here in Florida and the encryption setting had to be re-done every-time. So go into all devices and copy down all your MAC addresses and then pop them in your wireless router and poof only those Mac's can access the access point. I think there are weasel ways around this but most people including myself will not take the time or effort to steal bandwidth for all that trouble and you can always see if you have hitchhikers via the router. This was my easy solution to encryption. Okay I here them yelling now" but my info is not safe while it flies through the air to my router" SO WHAT! unless your doing CIA work you don't have to worry. and most PW fly through the air encrypted already, so there..lol

A WPA key is an encryption key for wireless networking devices. If you want to use a wireless router, you would need the WPA key that is setup in the router itself, in order for you to connect to it. You can see the WPA key on the security screen of your wireless router. Hope this helps.

Lan card is not connecting wireless connection available showing full signal but not connecting.


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Right now the security on your LED is set to 64 bit wep - now you need to change security on LED to wpa/wpa2 and that will solve your problem .
Advisable :if you can make sure what kind of security is been enabled on your wireless router (wep 128 bit or wpa/wpa2 ) that will be more helpful for you to select the security on led - give a try with wpa/wpa2 .

The WPA key is the encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings and the wireless cards in the laptop and desktop needs to be configured with this encryption setting to allow the laptop and desktop computer to communicate with the router.
You can view the encryption settings in the router's wireless settings or on the laptop's wireless card settings and then apply these encryption settings to the desktop's wireless card (ie. the SSID and the WPA encryption).

I have plugged in a wireless adapter for the 360 but...


A red steady light on the adapter means it is ready to be connected to a wireless network. If it fails to connect then the WPA key is not correct.

WPA automatically changes keys on a frequent basis for security purposes. So you need to take note of the SSID (wireless network name) and the Wireless security settings (WPA and passphrase) from the wireless access point/router.

Once you have the wireless network settings on the access-point/router, go to the System area to enter those settings.

If all settings are correct, exit the System area. Your console should now be connected to your wireless network.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

WIRELESS CONNECTION PROBLEM


Have you configured your wireless adapter with same WPA key that you had set on the wireless router?
Do you detect other Wireless routers in your area and are they using the same wireless channel as your router?
If so change the wireless channel on your wireless to an unused wireless channel to avoid interference with other wireless routers.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.
