WEP is not valid for the selected network


Hi,
As you have reset your base station, reconfigure it again after connecting it to your PC via cable. There you can configure wireless settings and WEB key encryption settings. Then delete the old connection settings present in your PC via network connections window and try connecting your PC via wifi as a new connection.
I hope this is helpful to you
Thanks

I have diminished signal from my Microsoft MN-500 wireless router - network is available (low signal) then disappears


if you sit close to the router after restarting it, can you connect, then step back a few steps? Also make sure no appliances are running near the router.

Just open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.2.1
When you get to the setup page of the router, look for Wireless tab, then Wireless Security. Select WPA-Personal or PSK and type your password on the passphrase or passkey box. Save the settings. That's it, your wireless network is secured

Setting up a security code to prevent sharing my network


You need to setup WEP encryption on that Wireless Router. Here is a link to how to do that:

Near the bottom of that page is how to configure Wireless Security.

Please rate me if you feel I deserve it.

Thanks.

Wireless Bridge


do this to change from routing mode to bridging mode, which allows your MN-500 to act as a wireless access point. Important: If you follow the procedures I've listed below instead of the procedures documented in the MN-500 User Guide, you will not lose the ability to administer the MN-500. This will give you the ability to change the SSID, channel, and encryption key if needed without performing a factory reset of the base station and starting from scratch. 1. While logged into the BSMT, click the Local Area Network link and access the Settings page. 2. Change the IP address from the default (192.168.2.1) to another IP in the same range and set the DHCP server to disabled using the list. Click Apply. In the example shown above, I've changed the IP to 192.168.2.252. Wait for all lights to turn green on the base station. 3. Open the BSMT again using the new IP. Use your Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.2.252 and enter your password if prompted. You will not be able to open the BSMT from the Microsoft Broadband Networking Utility (BNU). 4. Click Security, and then click Network Mode. 5. Click Bridging mode, and then click Apply. 6. Disconnect your computer from the MN-500 but do not disconnect the power from the MN-500 because it may take several minutes for the hardware to restart in access point (bridging) mode.
