Hi.
That's gonna be a permissions problem in the way the wireless device was set up originally. Go to network devices, properties (of the wireless connection) and check advanced options for permissions. Also check the way the firewall was set up, and if it allows the connection you are requiring.
Good luck

Need to find WEP security number


  1. Connect your computer to the wireless router. Although you can access the router wirelessly, it is better to use an Ethernet cable to directly connect to your router so that you can securely adjust router settings. Plug the Ethernet cable into the appropriate Ethernet jack on your computer. Plug the other end of the cable into any one of the open Ethernet ports on the back of your wireless router.

  2. Open your computer's web browser(INTERNET EXPLORER). In the URL address field, enter the IP address for your wireless router(the DEFUALT GATEWAY). This information should be contained in your router's manual. If you cannot find it, enter "198.168.1.1" as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.

  3. Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router's manual. If you don't have this information, go to routerpasswords.com and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers.try ADMIN" for user name and "PASSWORD" for password

  4. You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.(aka passphrase)

My computer has internet connection through the port on the back, but not through the router for wireless networking. All the connections from the modem to the router and further to the computer are...


So, just to confirm:
PC via ethernet has internet connection OK?
The router IP is 192.168.1.1
The PC ethernet IP is 192.168.1.n (n is not 1)
If you unplug the ethernet cable, you no longer have a connection.

If these are correct, did you previously have wireless internet working? If so, just reboot the router (unplug its power).

If not, you'll need to check the wireless settings in the router with those of your wireless network card, making sure you are using matching security settings (WPA-PSK, AES256, matching 'key').

To access the router, browse to http://192.168.1.1 (ensure your ethernet is plugged in). If you haven't changed from the default login details, you'll find them in the router manual.

Wrt400n connects via ethernet cable, but won't talk wireless


you said every thing that connects with the ethernet is working. that means the wired part of the router is working. check the wireless settings of the router. Open the set up page of the router on the main computer. connect the main computer to the router with the ethernet cable.
change the wireless settings of the router.
WRT400N is a dual band router ( 2.4 GHZ and 5 GHZ)
You can create 2 different wireless networks. Make sure that the names (SSID) will be different for both the networks. For 2.4 GHZ change the standard channel to 6 and save the settings.
Go to wireless security and set the security mode to WPA Personal. set up password for the wireless network. You can use the same password for both the networks. Make sure that the Wireless MAC address is disabled.
Now try to connect to the new wireless network. and see what happens.
