Since you forgot the security ket for the wireless network you need to access the router setup page using the a computer that is working fine with the router,
On the internet exploreer address bar of the working computer type in 192.168.1.1 , then that should be asking you for a username and password, just leave the username blank and password is admin. If tha admin password didn't work try typing your commonly use password.
If you're already on the setup page of the router, Just go to wireless tab then there's a wireless security sub tab there where you can find the security key that you need...

Hope that helps...........

I want to have a passphrase but no key numbers, how do I do this?


Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL, enter the login and password and then go to the wireless settings to configure the encryption setting. I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, this is the latest and strongest encryption method. You can enter the passphrase instead of hex numbers. Use this passphrase to configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop so it can connect to the Linksys wireless router.

I forgot my passphrase and key to my linksys wrt54g router.....help!!! plz


Your only option is to reset the unit. You can get directions on setting the new settings from the Linksys site. I write the info on a tag and put it on the router.

Be sure to set the wireless security. Use your 10 digit phone number, so you do not have to look up the access code every time a guest comes over.

Forgot passphrase


Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

Forgot password to WiFi How do I find out what it


To find the password/passphrase on the Linksys router, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. On older models the username is left blank and the password is “admin”. On newer models, both the username and password is “admin”.

Once you get in to the router management tool, look for the security portion. There you will find the password or passphrase you are using for your WEP or WPA security encryption.

Hi

To reset the router you need to push that pinhole in the back...make sure you got all your (ethernet etc. password)numbers to type back in...do it only as the last resort...how long have you had the router password forgotten.

Need to get laptop connected to wireless connection


The passphrase only means that there is a security enabled on that wireless network. You are correct, you need to know that passphrase for you to be able to successfully connect your laptop to that wireless network.

If you need more help on how to get this passphrase just let me know.

CANNOT MAKE NOTEBOOK WIRELESS WITH THE ROUTRE


Hi my name is Cameron I'll tak care of you (:

1.Next time do not use caps lock.
2.Use better grammar next time. I use Spell checker in FF.

Alright, first your router does not make the laptop wireless, the wireless card inside your laptop makes its wireless. Secondly if you do not have a wireless card you need a "Wireless USB Adapter" google that.

Thirdly, tell me what your doing in steps. For example:
Step 1-I go to search for wireless networks
Step 2- I try to connect to my network.

Please try saying it in steps so we all can understand where your getting the error, and how to fix it.

Thanks,
Cam
