Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase 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

Have lynksys wireless router but is unsecure -


You can enable WEP on your router to make your wireless network secure.

To access the screen of the router, type the ip address of the router in the address bar of Internet explorer or Firefox. By default the ip address of the router is 192.168.1.1. If this doesn't work, go to the command prompt (Start -> run -> type cmd). Type ipconfig. Copy the default gateway.

It will prompt you for a user name and password. By default leave the user name blank and then type admin in the password field.

Once you are in the Linksys screen, go to the Wireless tab -> Wireless security.

For the security mode, select WEP.

WEP encryption: 64bits 10 hex digits.

On the Passphrase field, type a wireless password of your choice, then click Generate.

It will give you a key. You will need to copy the wireless network key because you will need to enter this key on your PS3 and laptop. Take note that this is also case sensitive.

Once you click save settings, it will disconnect all your wireless computers.

You will need to manually enter the wireless network key on all your wireless devices. Without the network key, other computers will not be able to connect to your network.

I hope this helps.

Please take a moment to leave a comment if you find this solution helpful. Your feedback is important and very much appreciated.

I have a wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster and I need help obtaining the security code or better yet, help in setting the security to "on" because my internet company said that someone...


you will need to log in to your router.
in the wifi section select the wpa/psk security and use the serial number of the router as the security key.
you will then need to use this same number to access the router using wifi

Securing my wireless


if you are talking about the wireless security, by default it's not enabled so you need to enable it by going to the router's setup page. here's how: open a web browser (e.g. internet explorer, firefox etc) then type http://192.168.1.1 on the address bar. it'll promt you for the username and password, leave the username blank and type admin (default password)on the password. you will then be prompted with the linksys page, go to the wireless tab then look for the wireless security subtab. there you can enable your wireless security.

hope this'll help you and just ask me if you have other concern

ciao!

Connecting wireless router to laptop computer


Try changing the channel on the router. It would be better to isolate the problem first by trying to connect to other wireless networks on your laptop or having someone's laptop connect to your home wireless network.

Securing router


hi,

Go to your network properties and at TCP/IP go to its properties.
go inside "advance" and then go inside the "Options menu".
Now enable the TCP/IP filtering and set to "permit only" enter the TCP/IP numbers of the workstation that you have... apply it to the three boxes (TCP, UDP and IP Protocols)

Hope this helps... Goodluck!!!
