Retrieve or change password for wireless network.

Can't conect to my wireless network.

You must contact the manufacturer and see if there is a way to reset the wireless device if you can enter a new user name and/or password.  They can also have other suggetions to resolve the situation.  This is the wireless device software and not Microsoft software, so we are not familiar with how it works (and you do not include the manufacturer, the brand and model of the device, so we could search to try to reach a recommendation if this was possible without contact with them).

If this does not work, then I suggest uninstalling the software of the device wireless and then re - install again.  Who should clear the old password and give you a chance to enter a new during the installation and configuration process.  Make sure you know all the appropriate settings and note before you uninstall it (and make sure you have always access to the software or by recorded disc download, or the website of the manufacturer (ask them where to find it when you talk with them if you can't find it).)

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

  • "Cannot connect to the network." When you enter the correct password for wireless network


    I have the HP Photosmart C7200 all-in-One series.

    This seems relatively insignificant compared to some of the problems posted here, but nevertheless it is a problem.  I have a Verizon FiOS (Actiontec) router.  I am trying to connect to it wireless; the network key is using WPA authentication.  I followed all the instructions in the quick start guide.

    My printer detects my network and application authentication key.  I enter the correct key, the printer is trying to establish a connection, but after about 15 to 25 seconds, I get the error message, "cannot connect to the network.  I know that my key is correct; I connect to my router very well through several laptops, PDA, etc.  I have reset the settings network default manufacturer and tried without success.

    I don't know what kind of trouble shooting I'm supposed to do here.  The printer detects the router (albeit low signal strength) whenever I try to connect, I enter the password each time and I get the error each time.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Edit: I printed the test report wireless network, here are the results:

    Radio on   PASS

    The radio work   PASS

    Ethernet cable not plugged in   PASS

    Network name (SSID found)   PASS

    Security   PASS

    The printer settings compatible with the configuration of the wireless router   PASS

    No filtering   IN CASE OF FAILURE

    Connected   Not work

    The signal strength   Very low

    Other networks detected matching you the network name (SSID)   NO.

    I know this sounds strange, but try changing channel by channel 11 of the wireless router.

    I have a Pavilion dv6810us notebook running Vista Home Premium. It has the Atheros AR5007 wireless card. There are ten days, he stopped searching for wireless networks. I can only connect to a wireless so I manually enter the SSID and password in manage wireless networks.

  • Look at a key security or password for a network

    Hi, basically what I want to know is if there is a way I can see the key to security/password for my network. I'm on the computer that created the network, and now I'm trying to connect a laptop computer to my network and he asks me a password or security key. I do not pay attention to the key when I was creating the network, so I don't remember what it was. Can I see my key so I can connect my laptop to the network?

    This desktop PC and laptop are running on Vista, I say that if there is something else you should know :)

    Thank you very much!

    The best way, in my opinion, to learn that the key is to reset the router by default.  Default values appear in the router documentation.  You can then restore security to something you will remember. Brian Tillman [MVP-Outlook]

  • DHCP is not enabled for wireless network

    Hi all

    I have problems with internet connection and a large part of the time, that Network Diagnostics says Windows "DHCP is not enabled for wireless network", then it solves a problem, but I lose the connection several times a day, and each time that do the same fix again.

    I checked the Device Manager settings and DHCP is started and set to automatic, I also ran CMD > ipconfig/all and can paste the results if need be.

    I use a VPN and never had any prior issued connection with it and it seems to be just as hard to connect if the VPN is enabled or disabled.

    Also recently I got the "security defender" virus which has been deleted successfully, the next day of the day it has been deleted, all network cards have messed up, I uninstalled and reinstalled them but that didn't work so I restored my system and that seems to fix the problem, my computer does not seem to run as fast after the virus as before so I wonder if it has an impact on my current problem.

    I use a Toshiba Satellite Pro 660D and Windows 7.

    No, there is no impact of the change to the password of user oracle/root on the equivalence of the user and RAC.

  • How can I change my password for wireless?

    Change of password

    I'll put up my wireless after two years, and I don't remember the password for the other members of my family to use the wireless.

    Anyone know how to change, or the contact person to change?

    Where, exactly, is this required password?  Whether to connect to a wireless router, see the manual of the router (or manufacturer) for access and the router password reset procedures.  If nothing else works, every router I've seen has a reset switch that can be used to restore the router to the factory settings by default, where you can reconfigure and set new passwords.
