I have a laptop with windows xp home edition.

I have a belkin USB adapter.

I can log on with no problem to a free ports.

But I want to log on to a pass word and Key protected port.
I have the password and the key. What do I need to do to set up a
profile that will allow me to access this port?

Thanks so much for your help.

If I decode your question correctly, you want to know how to add a 2nd
WEP/WPA/WPA2 key. You probably can't do that with your unspecified
model wireless router. Most routers have only a single *SHARED* key
for everyone to use.

However, you're also talking about a "profile" which is just a mess of
saved setting on your client machine. This is a convenience and is
not necessary to making a successful connection. I take it your
unspecified model Belkin USB adapter can successfully connect to your
unspecified model wireless router. Are you having problems connecting
with a 2nd wireless client? If so, kindly describe what you're doing
and what manner of hardware you're using.

However, your question is also ambiguous. Are you trying to connect a
2nd wireless device to your unspecified wireless router, or are you
trying to establish a 2nd connection to some other wireless router
with your existing unspecified model Belkin USB adapter?

Also, if you're using WEP encryption, type in the WEP key in Hex, not
ASCII.

Hello
I will try to be more informative.
I am using a belkin usb g 802.11 network adapter in the gateway tablet
laptop computer running windows xp home edition with sp2 installed.
I am connection with no problem to various public hot spots. I just
select the located account that I want to connect to and it works.
However I have access to a protected site. I have the pass word and
the hex key.(I understand what hexadecimal is). What I want to know is
when I try to connect to that protected site what steps do I have to
take to do that.

TIA

ahhh - I think the confusing part was your use of the word "port" ?
vs hotspot, location, or access point....
"port" usually implies some physical cable connection.

Each WiFi SSID can be configured on XP to specify how you connect to it.
That is where you can define & enter the required security information
for each protected access point. This is just done once.
