You need to reset your network settings.
if you have an ethernet cable, use that and type 192.168.0.1 on the adress bar. copy all of your network settings and write them down.

on the back, there's a hole that says "reset" and sometimes its colored.  hold a small pin or paperclip for at least 15 seconds and then disconnect it. connect it and hold it or another 30 sec.   it should have reseted. the password would be the security key under the device. or it will not have a password (for some network routers)
now type 192.168.0.1 and put all of the settings that you wrote down. you can change the password now.

Cant find security key


If it's your router, you made the key. If it's not your router, stealing internet is a federal crime.
If you cannot remember the key then reset router to factory defaults.

To secure the wireless network or to change any settings on the router you will need to access the router set up interface.
Open the set up interface of the router . Make sure that your computer will be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable.

Onceyou open the set up page of the router , you will find the place tochange the wireless settings of the router. In case of Linksys wirelessrouter , you will see the Wireless Tab at the top.
SSID :It is the name of the wireless network. This name will be shown on yourwireless computer or the wireless device so that you can identify yourown wireless network. All the routers come with their factory defaultsettings. For example , the Linksys router will come with the Linksysnetwork name.
It will be better to change the wireless network name.
Wireless Security
Change the security mode to WEP.This security type is supported by all the operating system. Whenchange the security mode to WEP, you will find the Network key box totype the network key. Do not type anything in the Passphrase box. Typeyour network key in the Key 1 Box. If you set the encryption to 65bits, your network key will be 10 digit hexadecimal number. that meansyou can use the combination of 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and lettersa,b,c,d,e,f only. remember it should be exactly 10.
If you set theEncryption to 128 bit, your network key will be the combination of 26digits. You will need to remember the network key.

This is one of the most secured type of encryption.
Openthe set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security modeto WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box. in this box you cantype any password for your wireless network. The password should be thecombination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8characters.

Where is the network security key


The network security key is set by the user when the home network is setup. It prevents people from stealing your wireless signal. If you have forgot it, or didn't set it up but it still is asking for one, you can unplug and hit the reset button on your router and delete the home network you have on your main computer. From there, just run the network setup wizard from the main pc and set your network security key to something you can remember as well as write it down. Then you should be set to add any other pc to your home network as long as when you try to connect, you put the correct key in.

Forgot my flip camera security code


  • 1 Enter the number you think is your 4-digit unlock code. Do it once slowly, so you don't waste the number of tries you're allowed before the cam completely locks. If you never set a code, try 1234. The factory sets this as the default. If that fails, try the last four digits of your home phone number. That's the default of some network providers. If all these fail, go to Step 2.

  • 2 Click the menu key, which has horizontal lines on it. It sits between the left and right soft keys and above the round 5-way navigation keys. You should now see the unlock code bypass screen. Enter your 6-digit security code. Select "OK." If this doesn't work or you don't remember your security code, go to Step 3.
  • 3
  • Try 000000 as the factory default setting for the security code. If that doesn't work, go to Step 4.

  • 4 Call your network's customer service center. Locked ones usually let you call both customer service and 911. However, calling on a separate phone will make entering the code they give you easier to enter and test while they're still on the phone with you.

    I'm installing a new computer and it is asking for the network security key for our router so we can connect to the internet. We don't seem to have the network security key.


    The network security key for a router is typically the router serial number... just look at the label on the bottom or side of the router. If that doesn't not work, call your carrier for information about what security key they used.

    The router is blocking access to one computer asking for a network security key which is apparently different from the password. How do you find the security key?


    Hi camavery,

    If you want to the security key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security and under Security Mode you can see the Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure. You can personalize the Network Key so that you can easily remember it. Then Save the settings.

    If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.
