Does it ask for a "Network Key" when you try to connect?

I have a vodafone version of the linsky router and the i found my key in my virtual router.

So,plug the cable in from router to pc.
Let it recognize it.

Open command promt. (CTRL+R then type CMD and then Enter)

Type ipconfig>enter
Copy your default gateway (should be 192.168.1.1) into your broswer address bar (mozilla etc)
Hit enter
If you have your own password put it in now/if not try leaving it blank or try "admin" or "ADMIN"
Go to advanced.
Go to Network
Wireless LAN
Copy the "Pre-Shared Key"


If it does not prompt for this key turn security off (same page as the key) and see if you can connect then.

Hi doesn't have any security enabled.

ok103, see if you can compare your router "Setup" to this.
Just put in 192.168.1.1 in your web browse (as Minotar said) to bring up the router's config window.

Most Linksys router have similar of not the same config windows.
(note: i have very basic setup)

Then go to the "Status" tab and tell us what u have?

(Ps, i'm assuming you have connected your router to your modem correctly )

Its one you get from your internet ISP (in my case vodafone) so im guessing most get their routers from there


If there was no key then it was bought from a store...obviously lol,sorry,i should have put that in the post above

Dead easy.

Would you like to do it through a mapped share OR Remote Desktop-ing.

Either way, you need to get both machines connected to your wireless network.
