i purchased my friends wireless ADSL router because she is moving to australia to use with my laptop, i have a Toshiba Satellite A100, she has given me her network key, but its coming up with acquiring network address, and wont connect, just sits on that for about 10 mins before i get sick of it

is there any way i can get rid of her info so i can set up my own network key instead of hers? or was it just a waste of money?

thanks in advance for any help you can give me

It sounds like you don't have the correct wireless key or perhaps they had MAC address filtering enabled.

You will need an ethernet cable to connect your laptop directly to the 604T.
The laptop should get an IP address automatically and then you can log into the 604t and change the wireless settings to whatever you want.

Does the key have capital letters in it? Also try removing all the wireless networks that have been stored, disable the adapter then re-enable it. Search for network again and double check you have typed it in right.

If that doesn't work, plug into it with a network cable and login to the router settings and reset the password under wireless security. Let us know if you need further help with this. What model is the router?
