My dell laptop with Vista asks for the security pin number on my WGR614v8 netgear wireless router
when I try to connect to my home network and then when the number is entered and I try to connect
it tells me that the security number is not valid.

I have two other dell laptops with windows 7 and they didn't ask for the security pin when connecting
to the wireless network.

Please help,
Jerry

The only security I can think of in relation to wireless is the 'encryption key', not a pin as you call it.
You can determine the correct key by using one of the other laptops to log on to the router's configuration manager: Open a web browser and in the address bar type http://192.168.0.1

The default login is User = admin, Password = password

Click on 'Wireless Settings" on the left & the wireless encryption key is shown at bottom of page.

You can find the AP WPS PIN of WGR614v8 on the product label. The product label is located at the bottom of the router. On the label, you can find an 8-digit number marked as Security PIN, and that is the AP’s WPS PIN.

The computer does not want to accept the 8-digit security pin on the bottom of the router,
it says it's an invalid number.
