Hello, Thank you for contacting JA, I am Cris and will assist you with your question.

Hi, do you know the security key to connect your DVD player to your wireless router?

Customer:

Yes, it's the same one I use to connect the iPod's and such, correct?

Correct, now do you know if the router is set with WEP or WPA security?

No, how do I find that out?

I get to the part where I can see my router listed with some other local ones. I select it, put in the code and then it tries to connect then it says 'time out' and just stops.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
no I do not know. how would I find out?
Expert:  ITCris replied 3 years ago.
What is the make and model number of your router?


Also your security key is it a long series of numbers and letters?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Netgear N150 Wireless Router WNR1000
Expert:  ITCris replied 3 years ago.
Use a PC that is connected to the router with a network cable.

On that PC open a web browser and type in the following address:

http://www.routerlogin.net

That will bring up the router's login prompt. The default for a netgear router are:

username: admin
password: password

Once your logged in you should see the Netgear Setup page.

Click on Wireless Settings on left the pane. Please tell me what level of security you are using on the router WEP or WPA?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

It says: WPA2-PSK [AES]

 

Expert:  ITCris replied 3 years ago.
OK,

It seems that WPA2 may be to high of a security for your DVD to connect. You will need to lower it to WPA make sure this is done from a PC connected to the router.

Save the settings and try to connect your DVD player
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
NOPE...DIDN'T WORK. STILL SAYS 'TIME OUT' :(
Expert:  ITCris replied 3 years ago.
Try WEP you will need to then enter a passphrase and click generate. Use the key to connect your DVD.
