  • Second router: Connect one of the other ports (not Internet or WAN) to the same port on the back of the first router. If your ports on your routers are WAN, 1, 2, 3, 4, then connect the first and second router together in port 1.

Encryption wifi

AT&T Wireless does not enable WEP (Wired Equivalency Protection) on any of the wireless equipment used in their networks. Therefore, no special keys are required to use AT&T Wireless’ wireless Internet access. WEP encryption is not yet practical for a public access network, due in part to the absence of a standardized method for relaying encryption keys between different manufacturers’ equipment. The AT&T Wireless system supports secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) access for optimum security. AT&T Wireless also encourages its users to observe standard security practices, such as ensuring that computer hard drives are not shared.

It’s a driver issue. Before you try this, make sure you can connect some other way, preferably with a wired connection to a router. Open up Device Manger, right click on your wireless network card, and choose “Uninstall”. Let it finish. If it asks you if you want to delete files, choose “No”. Reboot the system. Upon reboot, Windows is going to find that card again. If you are connected (and you should be) – it will try to find updated drivers for your card. If it doesn’t, let it install the ones you already have. If that doesn’t work, make sure that Windows doesn’t think another program should be handling wireless connections. Go to Control Panel, Network Connections, and double click on your wireless connection. If Windows can handle it then it will give you the properties of the connection. If something else is set to control the connection, you will get a message telling you. If you get that message about another program, tell us what it is and we will tell you how to disable it.

You need to update your WPA-compliant configuration tool from your wireless network adapter vendor. Changes to wireless client programs Wireless client programs must be updated to permit the configuration of WPA authentication (and preshared key) and the new WPA encryption algorithms (TKIP and the optional AES component). For wireless clients that are running Windows XP Service Pack 1 (SP1) and that are using a wireless network adapter that supports the Wireless Zero Configuration service, you must obtain and install the Windows WPA Client. For wireless clients that are running Windows XP service pack 2 (SP2) and that are using a wireless network adapter that supports the Wireless Zero Configuration service, the Windows WPA Client is included in Windows XP SP2. Therefore, additional downloads are not needed. The Windows WPA Client updates the wireless network configuration dialog boxes to support new WPA options. For more information and to obtain the WPA client program, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 826942

? Yes i had the same problem and finally figured out how to make it work. I have Atheros wireless card and it is the driver which comes with Windows 7 causing the problem. I “updated” the driver to the one I installed in Windows XP provided by my laptop manufacturer, which is dated back in 2003, and finally it works!!!!!

I HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION TO THE WINDOWS 7 WPA and WPA2 CONNECTIVITY PROBLEM. I searched for about 2 hours trying to find the solution to why my computer wouldn’t connect to our internet once I tried using WPA2. And all the forums I have been to have said that it’s just a problem with Windows 7. FINALLY I have figured out the ultimate solution that works. When you switch over to WPA or WPA2, you are going to get kicked off of the internet if you are on a laptop or something. All you have to do is go to your network settings and delete the wireless network that you have saved on your laptop. You then redo the setup to that connection all over again as if it is the first time connecting to your wireless internet. Once you’ve done this there should be an option to select what type of security it is, IF it doesn’t connect automatically.
