Hi there,

Having a problem with wireless credentials on my laptop. I have two desktops (one of which has the router) plus my laptop. My 2nd pc connects to the wireless network without a hitch and has never asked for any credentials. My laptop on the other hand is asking for them and I am not really sure what they are or where to get them.

It asks for User name, pass word, and logon domain?

Any help?

Hi There

You can get your wireless credentials from your router's wireless settings page (varies on routers).

You do this by putting your router's IP address into IE or Firefox and then put in the router's username and password. You can find router default IP's and username / passwords here.

Now you have to apply these settings to any client that is going to be connecting wirelessly. You can either use the program that comes with your wireless adaptor or the one built into Windows like this:


The network name (SSID), security type, encryption type and security key MUST match those settings on the router EXACTLY.

Regards
