Why would you want to remove the security encryption from your wireless connection? That just leaves you open to any passerby to leech your internet and access your LAN.

we couldnt remember the password as we wanted to see if our ipod connected to the wireless...
we was going to put a new one on after but we tried to go on the 192. ... on the net but wouldnt let us.

In that case, you have to connect to the router by wire, to be able to configure the security things.

After that, you must configure the wireless connection on your computer with the newly configured encryption key, disconnect the LAN cable from the computer and maybe best, restart the computer.

Should work.

Let us know, if the problem is solved !!!

Probably you have wrongly configured the wireless router, that's why you failed connecting to wireless router.

In worst case, you can reset the router by pressing reset button at the back of router for 30s, connect computer to router with network cable this way, after that take a look on this wireless router configuration example to reconfigure it.

Hope this helps.

when we set up the wireless, our computer wouldnt take it so the wireless would work on laptops etc but the main computer had to be plugged in into the internet..

if i do the above then plug the main cable into my pc will the wireless still work?

Which "Main cable" are you talking about? There should be an ethernet cable connecting from broadband modem to router WAN port. You then connect by a second ethernet cable from router LAN port to the PC. Most routers have an inbuilt 4 port switch for the LAN side. What model router are you using?

If you have configured your wireless router correctly, you can have wired and wireless connection from different computers to router without problem.
