    I upgraded my home wireless network to a new belkin wireless N
    router from a belkin wireless G router. I set up the WEP encyrption and got
    all of my PCs seeing and using the router again. All of the PCs use USB
    adapters to connect to the router - and I could easily connect and put in the
    WEP encryption key to use. However, When I tried connecting my Vista based
    laptop, it sees the network fine, but when i try to connect, it wants a
    username, password, and logon
    domain. I never set up any sort of username or password for my router - just
    the 128WEP key. What do i put in these fields to get my vista laptop talking
    to my new router?

    Any thoughts would be great.

  2. Hi
    Be very specific to what are you trying to connect to.
    Connection to the Router per-se is only for the purpose of configuring the
    Router, every Router has User name (ID) and password (Info in the Router's
    manual).

    Hi
    I would also reset your router settings! WEP is not very secure. Can you use
    WPA or WPA"? This is more up to date and alot safer. (You will have to
    connect your PC to the router using the cable to do this)

    The only way I have found to get around this situation in VISTA is t
    create the connection manually. There might be something you can edit i
    the polcies on the computer that could possibly help, but as for no
    that is the only way I have noticed

    To create it manually just go to your network sharing center and clic
    create a network connection on the left hand panel. Hope this helps
