  • Open Network Connections, find your network, right click and select Properties, re-enter the network key you created when you secured your wireless network. If you are still unable to connect look for a reset button on the back of the wireless router and depress it for about ten seconds ( leave the power to the router on while performing this action ). This will reset the router settings to factory defaults ( unsecured ). I suggest reading the help files for securing a wireless network on your computer and on the router set up page before attempting to secure your network again.
