Ask Mac Questions and Get Answers from Experts ASAP
Can you tell me what version of wireless router you are using
Belkin N+Wireless Router
Can you connect to this router with any other wireless devices
Yes, we have 3 other laptops that connect with no problem
are they all pcs or macs as well
I have an appointment that I have to get to. May I check back with you in an hour or so?
When you get a chance can you log into your router configuration from one of the PCs and tell me if it is using for security WAP WPA2 WEP
Hi Omer, I am on one of the pc's and in "my computer" devices and from there, I'm not sure where to find the router configuration security. Am I in the correct place?
You going to want to open a web browser internet explorer or whatever you use on the pc
go to http://192.168.2.1
it should ask you to log in with your user and password
it may just ask for username
ok, I'll check....
It's asking for a password. Is that the same as the wireless security password? default = blank
unless you set it to be different
if you never set one of the router it maybe blank
64 bit WEP
Had to leave it blank... 64bitWEP
Now this is going to sound wierd but try this
go to your ibook
1. From the Airport menu, select the SSID of your network2. When asked for a password, enter 0x (thats zero-x) followed by your WEP key, i.e. 0xFF123456783. Your computer should now connect with no problems at all.
give it a try and let me know
ok, I clicked on the wireless and then my "mike" network. I don't see anything that says SSID. Should I?
SSID is "mike"
my WEP key is 0x and then my password XXXXX the router?
or the key that I got from the pc?
just answered my own question, sorry... brb
yes essentially you want to type in 0x plus the password XXXXX use to connect your laptop
Its always good when we can answer our own questions :-)
ok, I think it worked. I will unplug the cord and if I lose you I'll connect and find you.
Ok sounds good
