Fortunately, the wireless password and the router password are two different things :-)

Find the directions to your router and log into it by going to the gateway address...usually 192.168.1.1 or some address ending in 1. Go to the manage wireless section and it will either give you the current wireless password or let you change it. Make sure you write it down and save the changes and you should be able to get in via the wireless access.

I got a new laptop and am trying to connect to the internet, but it is asking me for the Network Security Key. I don't know where to find it. Can you help??


Network security key is a encryption key.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Trying to secure wireless network


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to secure the network you all you need to do is to access the router settings page and put a security either WEP, WPA or WPA2 and a Network Key or Passphrase.

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 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank

Click on Security under Wireless, Select WEP, WPA or WPA2 and personalize a Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase). Security Key serves as a password on the network.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Then click on wireless and then wireless security then change wep password because it is in * or # format then save settings and restart router then you can connect with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Sexcurity key of passphrase


We're going to need to login to your router, and check its settings. Plug a wire into the back of the router, and then access it's web interface by opening Internet Explorer and going to the web address http://192.168.0.1 . You'll need to know your password to get in. The default should be the username of "admin" and password of "password". Then access your wireless settings and make sure you've got WEP or WPA setup, and check the passphrase it's connecting with.
If this doesn't help, try posting back with some more information about the router, specifically how it's setup, and if any other machines are able to connect to it before. Also, you can take some screenshots of it with windows and upload them here.
