hello!

normally, if you configure the wireless security settings wirelessly, it will automatically disconnect you from the network. you have to input the security key on the laptop first before it connects you back to the network.

i suggest, if you really like to configure the settings of your router, get an ethernet cable, connect it directly to the laptop so you can access and configure the router settings and to avoid from being disconnected

SOURCE: No Wireless Connectivity

There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.
1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. change the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router.
3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, ard welders, washing machines etc. If so the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Forgotten pre-shared key for D-Link Router


I thought there was a check box in this model that enabled you to see the password/key. If not then you may have to do a factory reset and set-up everything from scratch. Cannot remember if this model has a guest mode, but if the device you are connecting is not critical, TV, BlueRay, Roku etc, then enable the guest mode without a password to connect. These devices will NOT connect to other things on the network, but if they only need internet access it may be OK.

Hi, when i try to connect through ma mobile wireless, it gives me a note to type a pre-shared key,,,i don know wt is it, and how to get!!!? would u help me plz


The pre-shared key is for data encryption over wireless. It is set on the router/access point by the Admin/owner. If that's not you, you'll need to ask somebody for it.

Hi my wireless router is not working..i need security key for that..how can i get that key


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! The security key for the Belkin router is what they also called the Pre-Shared Key, it maybe in the form of word, phrase or series of letters and numbers. The key must be between 8 and 63 characters long and can include spaces and symbols, or 64 Hex (0-F) only. Each client that connects to the network must use the same key (Pre-Shared Key).

1. Click on the green Belkin Router Manager icon (right-click for Windows) to open the menu, or type 192.168.2.1 into a web browser.

2.On the Belkin Router Manager menu, scroll up to Router Settings and highlight.

3.Click to open the Belkin Router Setup page on your Web browser.

4. You must log in with a password to make changes to your Router's settings. If you have not yet set a custom up a password, leave this field blank and click the "Submit" button.

5. Click the Wireless > Security link from the page menu on the left-hand side.

6. On the Wireless > Security page, you can retrieve your password(s) from the fields to the right of the Pre-shared Key (PSK) > entry.

7. Uncheck the Obscure PSK box to view and retrieve your password(s).

8. Re-check the Obscure PSK box to obscure your password(s).

How do i put a password on my connection


Hello,
please write your address box the below link,
http://192.168.1.1
Then, it opens your user interface of the modem.
You can manage your modem now.
Find your Wifi Protected Access (WPA) and Pre Shared Key (PSK)
Choose one of encryption techniques. I use TKIP.
Wireless Protected Access with a Pre-Shared Key: The key is a password, in the form of a word, phrase or series of letters and numbers. The key must be between 8 and 63 characters long and can include spaces and symbols. Each client that connects to the network must use the same key (Pre-Shared Key).
Put a password to your connection settings and save it.
I hope this will be helpful.

Broadband wireless adapter limited connectivity issues


If the wireless security on the router is enabled, then the pre-shared key or encryption key on the router and PC should match.

To check the wireless settings, use the laptop to access the web interface of the router. Follow the steps below:

1 Using your Internet browser, go to http://dsldevice.lan or to the IP address of your router (by default: 192.168.1.254).
2 On the Home Network menu, click Wireless.
3 In the upper-right corner, click Details.
4 The wireless Access Point page appears. Under:
- Configuration, you can find the network name (SSID).
- Security, you can find the encryption.

On the PC wireless, access the wireless network connection. Select the SSID and then type the encryption key or pre-shared key.

Once the encryption key on the PC and router matches, then you should obtain an IP address and get online.

The Pre-shared key is used to setup encryption on wireless routers.
The latest strongest encryption methods used is Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA and WPA2).
The wireless router is configured with WAP or WAP2, and the computer's wireless card is configured with the router's WAP or WAP2 encryption. The wireless router will now allow communication with the computer's wireless card, data transmitted between the router and computer is encrypted and therefore protected from unauthorized access.

If you don't know your pre shared key or forgotten it. You need to access the configuration page of your router and create a new network name and a sign a new network key or pre shared key. Create the profile of your SSID/Wireless network connetion under wireless settings.

Connect dlink to n95


Hello...the pre-shared key is also known as the network key, and you can find it within your router settings.

Open a web browser, and login to your router by typing http://192.168.0.1 into the address bar.

You are prompted for a username and password. Enter username: admin and leave the password blank, or enter your password if you have set one.

Go to Home >Wireless. You should see your pre-shared key, or network key there.

Hope this helps you, but please come back to Fixya if this does not work or you need further help.
