Restore wireless access to the laptops that do not have OneCare

    คำถาม

  • I have two desktop computers with OneCare.  I have 4 laptops with other security systems.  I had to reset my wireless network from Lynksys to OneCare even though those laptops did not have OneCare.  I did reset 2 of them using the ID given.  However, I did not reset the other 2 laptops because I was not using those at that time.  Since then, I misplaced the ID that I used.  Now, I cannot have wireless access on those 2 laptops that I did not reset.  It looks like even though those laptops do not have OneCare, the wireless access is controlled by OneCare.  Currently, it shows no available wireless network.  How can I restore wireless access on those laptops?   Thank you for your help.

  • The wireless key is set in the router by OneCare if you used that option and if your router is supported.

    From OneCare help:

     

    To add a computer to a wireless network if you used the Add a PC wizard in Windows Live OneCare:

    1. On the computer that you used to help secure the wireless network, click Change Settings.
    2. On Firewall tab, click Advanced settings.
    3. On the Network connections tab, click your wireless network, and then click Details.
    4. The SSID and network key appear in the Security Information area.

     

    And, on the PCs you wish to add to the network:

    To add a device to a newly secured wireless network, follow the instructions in the manufacturer's manual for the device. If you need more help, contact the manufacturer of the device.

    Note

    You must enter the SSID and network key to add a device.

  • Hi

    Thank you for  your reply.  I cannot locate Change Settings under Network & Internet.  I have MS Vista.  Can you help me how to get to Change Settings?

     

    Thank you.

  • Change Settings is within the OneCare interface on the PC that is running OneCare and was used to secure the network. If you are no longer running OneCare on any PC, then you'll need to reset the router and configure it securely per the manufacturer's instructions.

    If you are using Windows Live OneCare you will only see the details on the PC where security was set from. It will not be available on any other PC.

    If you are not using Windows Live OneCare, you should seek help here: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/categories - select Windows, then the operating system you are using.

    Note, if you are using OneCare, that it is at end of life. 

    See this post  for End of Life information for Windows Live OneCare - http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/onecaregeneral/thread/81996436-edad-41ba-bdfc-02fc094e2ca9

    Uninstall OneCare http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/onecaregeneral/thread/732e6371-2e71-479a-8cd6-b189941ed4fb, use the cleanup tool:  http://social.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/onecareinstallandactivate/thread/399071e2-49dc-4767-932d-d261e3965943/, and then download and install the free Microsoft Security essentials for malware protection - http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/resources.aspx 

    If you used OneCare for backups, you'll still be able to restore from old backups if you use the OneCare Restore tool - http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/onecarebackupandrestore/thread/e5d686c8-762b-4b22-bc08-bfb93f911e57, but you'll need to seek an alternative backup solution.
