Network Authentication Problem help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So i have a Netgear WGR614v8 router and i just hooked it all up to my main computer

i have a secondary computer in another room with a wireless adapter to it that finds the signal (wireless) and tries to connect to it

but every time i try to connect to it, it tells me that there is a username and password that i need in order to sign in but everything i type in doesnt work

but whenever i disable the WEP off, and there is no password to sign into my wireless internet, it works fine... help please?

Don't have the router but after searching others had the same problem like you.
Some fixed it with updating their firmware.
There seems to be some problem between WPS and WEP, enable WEP and try connecting with the WPS pin method.
Try using a very simple password for testing (eg. 12345678), some routers sometimes can't manage symbols in passwords(have the same problem with my router).

Just a side note, WEP can be easily cracked. You really should be running all wifi networks on WPA instead

you should use better security eg. WPA2-PSK for home use.
using WEP is hardly better than not having any security.

Keep in mind with WEP you'll generally have to use the HEX code instead of your passphrase.

But yes, use WPA or WPA2 if available.
