I recently restored my laptop to its previous windows 7 settings. Apon restoration my wireless network, provided by att uverse, will not prompt me to type in the security key to access it. I can access the internet throught LAN. Other wireless networks in range will prompt me for a key. So i want to know how to access my wireless network. Or how to get my computer to provide a place to type in the security key.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Are you saying that you can successfully connect to your wireless network but do not need a key to do so or that your computer can not even find it to try to connect to it?

In the first case, have you used your wired connection to the wireless router to confirm that wireless encryption is enabled?

In the second case, have you used your wired connection to the wireless router to confirm that the wireless access point is actually enabled in the wireless router? If it is enabled, is it also set to broadcast its unique SSID? If broadcasting of the SSID is disabled, you can either enable it on the router or you will need to manually set up the wireless connection on the computer.
