First take off WEP.
Next, ensure DHCP is enabled on router.
Don't set a manual IP address in computer, it should auto detect.
You probably have the WEP key wrong

Use the HEX WEP key in windows, do not use a pass phrase.

How do I get connected to broad band with my humax/freesat


Is it a wired or wireless connection?

If it is wired, check that the cable works in another device (such as a laptop).

If you're using a wireless dongle in your Humax, you will need to provide the wireless key to register the dongle with the network. You may need to do this in another device (such as a laptop).

How to set up WEP on Linksys Router

Setting-Up 152-Bit WEP Wireless Security on a Linksys Dual-Band A+G Wireless Router
Question
How do I set up 152-Bit WEP on a Linksys Dual-Band A+G Wireless Router?
Answer
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) can be a 64-bit key with 10 hexadecimal digits, a 128-bit WEP key with 26 hexadecimal digits or a 152-bit WEP key with 32 hexadecimal digits. This encryption will prevent other users from connecting to a wireless network using your own WEP key. It will also protect your wireless transmissions/communications from being accessed or received by other users.
NOTE: Make sure to change the wireless settings of either Wireless-A or Wireless-G depending on the standard your network is using.
152-bit WEP key only applies to 5GHz 802.11a Wireless enabled network.
To setup WEP Wireless Security on your Linksys router follow the steps below.
Setting-Up the Linksys Router to use WEP
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click Wireless then click WirelessSecurity.
Step 3:
Look for SecurityMode and select WEP.
For Wireless-A Settings:

4439-003.pngNOTE: If the screen on your router’s web-based setup page looks different, click here.
Step 4:
Look for the Encryption drop down menu and select 152 bits.
Step 5:
Look for Passphrase and type a wireless network password of your choice, then click Generate. In this example “MySecretKey” was used.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 16 characters.
Step 6:
When you click Generate, the result will be a string of random characters.
Step 7:
Look for TXKey and select any number to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected 1.

4439-005.pngStep 8:
Copy Key1 since 1 was selected under TX Key.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.

How do i find my access point name my broad band t-mobile & im working with windows 7 if any one can help that would to great thanks


Your "access point" means the thing that your computer connects to in order to get on the internet. An "access point" can be the dsl modem, a router or switch inbetween the computer and the internet connection or the point of entry to the internet - depending on what you are using to connect and get on line.

You mentioned you have a broad band connection with t mobile. Is this the T mobile home service link that gives you regular phone service and internet? If so - what is the name of the box your connecting your phone and pc to?

What is the name of the equipment that t mobile gave you to use that broad band link?

Are you using a desktop or a laptop? Wireless connection? or a wired connection with a ethernet cable (looks like a phone cable but a little bigger on the plug end)?

To answer my questions go back to your original problem posted on fixya and use the comment or reply link in blue.

Secure wireless connection with WEP but still picks up all wireless connections


If the unit has WAP as an option, use that instead of WEP. If enabling this still does not prompt you for a key, or you don't have this option, check here to make sure you have configured it properly... http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101675.asp

If that doesn't help, check this firmware page and upgrade... http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d103242.asp

Hope this helps! : )

Limited connectivity


Hi Duneider!
It's normal that your computers will not connect after you enable a wireless security (WEP/WPA). You are getting a limited or no connectivity message because the wireless computers are not connected to the network using the network key or the password that you have used to setup WEP or WPA. There is no need in hard conding the IP address, all you need to do is reconnect to the wireless network using the WEP or WPA Key. If you will type the correct WEP or WPA Key, it will connect and automatically get the IP address again from your router.

X box


Sometimes Cable providers require you to add your X-Box MAC address to the account so they know where to send the IP.
