Question about MSI L1350D-1672US Netbook

1 Answer

I have a new MSI L1350D laptop. I have problems accessing wifi. The wireless is broadcasting with WPA-PSK (TKIP encryption), and laptop is configured to use WPA-personal (TKIP), with DHCP, to receive. The problem is that it always can't connect to the wireless automatically. After trying the "troubleshoot problems", sometimes it works, but more than often it doesn't. It is making me mad. Could anyone please help?

Wireless signals use the frequency 2.4 GHz for 802.11b&g&n
make sure the absence of a device using the same frequency to avoid interference. i. e. wireless phones.

if there are other wireless networks around, try to change the broadcasting channel of the wireless router, for instance, if its running WiFi on channel 1, change it to channel 11

on other thing that affects wireless signals is water, or moisture in general, it absorbs the signals energy so try to avoid things that carry water in them like plants and/or aquariums.

check and let me know if your problem is not wireless signalling.

How do you write an ASCII network encryption key?


Hello. Wireless security strength depends on the mode of encryption you are going to use (WEP, WPA-PSK [TKIP], WPA2-PSK [AES], WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]).
WPA-PSK should be enough to secure your Wireless network.

ASCII - Choose from any key available on the keyboardHexadecimal - Characters ( 0~9 and A~F)

  • Before setting up wireless security on the router, make sure the computer you are going to use to setup wireless security is directly connected to the router using an Ethernet cable(wired).

  • To setup wireless security on the router, access the router user by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the address field of your browser and then press Enter.
  • Enter admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).
11_25_2011_5_49_11_am.png
  • Choose Wireless Settings from the Menu on the left.
11_25_2011_5_52_11_am.jpg
  • Select WPA-PSK under Security Options. Input the Passphrase.
Passphrase can be 8~63 Hexadecimal characters or 8~63 ASCII characters.
Take note of the passphrase then click Apply.
Hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Muddytrying to go to netflix, from my WII says my internet connection is not working, but my laptop in on and working.


Greetings,

Did you recently change your encryption or password on your wireless network? It may not work if you are not using one of the following encryption types:
  • WEP
  • WPA - PSK (TKIP)
  • WPA - PSK (AES)
  • WPA2 - PSK (AES)
Try re-entering your wireless settings on the Wii to match the settings on your laptop.

How do I connect my iphone to my wifi in my home? I have a belkin wireless router


You will need to know what encryption method is being used. Assuming you are using 802.11(a/b/g/n) it will be WEP, or WPA / WPA2 with a preshared KEY (PSK) or TKIP.

If it is WEP, you will need to copy the entire key from your router's wireless configuration page. Then on your iPhone, click Settings, Wi-Fi then select your network and enter the WEP key.

If you are using WPA or WPA2 with a pre-shared key, select that option and enter your key and it should connect immediately.

If your network is not being broadcast then you will need to manually enter the settings under Settings, Wi-Fi, Other.

What's the difference between WEP and WPA? What should I pick?


WEP is a weak securtiy protocol that is outdated and can be easily broken

WPA is a newer security protocol that is much harder to break with AES encryption

WPA is always recommended mode for operation over WEP.

Use WPA2 which is latest version if it is supported by device.

Our router is visible for others and everyone has free access! how to block this router for others?(network is unprotected now without any password or whatever). Thanks in advance. E


  • Please follow the below instructions to protect your device:


  • Connect your computer to the router using a network cable, or you can connect to the router through a wireless connection. Note that your wireless card in your computer must be enabled.
  • Open your Web browser. Enter: http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. This is an internal IP address to access your router. Press the Enter Key.
  • When the password request appears leave the user name field blank. By default, the password is admin.
  • After logging in, you are not required to change the default administrative password. However, it's fully recommended that you change the default password by clicking on the Administration tab and Management. Enter a new password in the Password field and again in the Re-enter field to confirm.
  • I recommend setting the Remote Management item as Disable. It will be another layer of security for your router. With this configuration you can only access your router for programming using a standard Ethernet network cabling.
  • To save the new password, click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
  • To avoid intruders accessing your wireless connection we'll start to work with the Wireless tab.
  • In the Basic Wireless Settings enter a name for your wireless network connection in the Wireless Network Name (SSID). Set the Wireless Broadcast to Disable.
  • When wireless clients survey the local area for wireless networks to associate with, they will detect the SSID broadcast by the Router if the Broadcast is enabled. Do not broadcast the Router SSID. It must be Disabled.


  • Note that your SSID should be set following similar rules for setting a password, e.g. at least 8 characters, a combination of letters, numbers and non consecutive characters.


  • Disabling the SSID broadcast is not a strong security setting, but it can help prevent intruders from sharing your WLAN. Remember to save your settings.


  • Enable network authentication and encryption. Listed in order strongest to weakest:

WPA2-PSK (data encryption TKIP or AES)

WPA-PSK (data encryption TKIP or AES)

WEP (256 Bit) - Weak, but better than no encryption

WEP (128 Bit) - Weaker, but better than no encryption

WEP (64 Bit) - Weakest, but better than no encryption



plz do rate the solution if got help

Laptop can't connect to DSL-G604T


You need to configure your router and use WPA encryption so that all accessing device can connect to it.


The obvious reason why the dell laptop can't connect is because of the WPA encryption set. It is different compared with what your router is actually broadcasting: WPA2.

So you can choose one of the 2 things to alter. Change your router's WPA2 encryption to WPA or change your Dell's setup to WPA2.

The wireless network is broadcasting but it will


Howdy,

Sounds like you may have an encryption problem. Are you running an open or secure network? Try setting it to Security > Disabled and see if you can get on. (Please note where you were before you disable the security) This will be under the Wireless > Wireless Security tab. If you can connect after disabling the security then you probably did not enter you key code correctly. OR... You may have set it to a level of encryption that your wireless laptop does not support. (Don't know the age of the laptop - some older ones will support WEP only and "b" only.) Make sure that you are broadcasting in both "b" & "g" ranges and if WPA won't work for you, then try WEP. It is a little difficult for me to tell you exactly what to do because I do not have all the necessary information but perhaps this will help. The main thing is to disable the security first and see if you can connect. If you can, then this is a BIG clue and good news. Then you know it is an encryption issue.

Typically the encryption choices are WPA - WPA-PSK - WPA2 - WPA2-PSK - RADIUS & WEP. I would recommend WPA-PSK with TKIP for normal "modern" applications. If your WRTP54G has the Auto Security setup button on the front of the router you may want to use it to automatically set up your wireless security. You can tell by feeling the raised rectangular push button on the front panel.

Good Luck!
