Hello, I am Engineer John C., I will be your expert today.

Do you have a computer with Windows 7 or Mac OS (which one?) that can currently connect to your internet via wireless? This would help to confirm your wireless network password.

yes I do have windows 7 plus a new Galaxy Tab 2 10.2. Also, why will it not hook up to my ethernet?

Please follow the steps below from your computer with Windows 7 connected to internet via wireless and you will see the network key:

1- Click Start

2- Click Control Panel

3- NOW, make sure you select "View by: LARGE ICONS" on the upper right corner.

4- Click "Network and Sharing Center"

5- Click "Manage Wireless Networks" on the left

6- Double click your wireless network name

7- Click the "Security" tab

8- Click "Show characters"

9- Now find your password next to "Network security key". Write this password down.



Then connect the Belkin camera to your wireless network name, and -when prompted- enter your wireless network password (the password we just got from your Windows 7 computer).
