Tip to retrieve if you forget the wireless key of your router

Welcome to fixya

If you have forgotten the wireless network key , you can retrieve it from the router itself

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > Wireless security

On this screen you can see the wireless key

If the security mode is WEP then your password is Key1
If the security mode is WPA-PSK then your password is WPA Preshared key

Thanks

Forgotten password


The password is the wireless router's encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

hi my wireless router is not working..i need security key for that..how can i get that key


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! The security key for the Belkin router is what they also called the Pre-Shared Key, it maybe in the form of word, phrase or series of letters and numbers. The key must be between 8 and 63 characters long and can include spaces and symbols, or 64 Hex (0-F) only. Each client that connects to the network must use the same key (Pre-Shared Key).

1. Click on the green Belkin Router Manager icon (right-click for Windows) to open the menu, or type 192.168.2.1 into a web browser.

2.On the Belkin Router Manager menu, scroll up to Router Settings and highlight.

3.Click to open the Belkin Router Setup page on your Web browser.

4. You must log in with a password to make changes to your Router's settings. If you have not yet set a custom up a password, leave this field blank and click the "Submit" button.

5. Click the Wireless > Security link from the page menu on the left-hand side.

6. On the Wireless > Security page, you can retrieve your password(s) from the fields to the right of the Pre-shared Key (PSK) > entry.

7. Uncheck the Obscure PSK box to view and retrieve your password(s).

8. Re-check the Obscure PSK box to obscure your password(s).
