I'm assuming this is a wireless network key that you need? If so, ask the person who manages the wireless router.

If you own the router, you'll have to connect to it with a cable the first time 'round, and set your laptop's IP to something on the same subnet, like 192.168.1.1, or ..2.1. Enter the router's ip in your browser.

Once you've established a link using a cable, finding out the present key, or resetting it, should be as simple as browsing the web page served by the router.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blankand the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

I have a new laptop and am unable to access wireless with the linksys router ( it worked on my old pc, before it died) The infor on my router reads: linksys wrt100 range plus wireless router


Check if the wireless security is ON. If yes, then you will need to know the wireless network key.

To check the settings on the router on a connected computer, use a web browser and in the address bar type: 192.168.1.1.

By default leave the username blank, then the password is admin.

Go to Wireless, take note of the SSID.

Then go to Wireless security, copy the pre-shared key/ wireless network key.

On your new laptop, view the available networks, you should see your SSID. It will prompt you to enter the network key, just type the wireless network key.

I hope this helps!

Cannot connect new laptop to wireless network. Belkin Wireless N


The wireless settings on the laptop and the router should match. To check the settings on the router you need to access the setup page by typing 192.168.2.1 in a web browser's address bar.

By default the password is blank.

Click the Wireless tab. And take note of the SSID or wireless network name.

Go to Security, then Wireless. If the wireless security is enabled, copy the network key or security key.

On the wireless computer, you should detect SSID and if wireless security is enabled, connect to it with the correct security keys.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Need network key for wireless network connection


This is your password on the router. Do you know it? Are other computers on this router? If not you can hold the reset button on the back of the router for 30 seconds and it will reset to factory default. No network key needed, then log in to your router and set a new network key.

Need wep to connect laptop from school to home network while at home


YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THE WEP KEY IN YOUR INTERNET CONNECTIONS. IF THERE IS NO WEP KEY, JUST CREATE ONE AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO. THIS CONNECTION LINK HAS A TAB TO SHOW CHARACTERS IF THE KEY HAS BEEN ENTERED. YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO REMEMBER IT, OR JUST CREATE A NEW CONNECTION WITH A NEW WEP KEY! THAT IS THE EASY WAY! GOOD LUCK.

Connecting to internet


The network key is with the wireless router that you have. When you moved, your router reestablished itself with a new connection at a new location, and more than likely set a new key. Try reconfiguring your router with a new network key, then configure the laptop with the new key, and it should connect.
