Security key issue

One of my kids lost the security key on their laptop, is there a way I can find it on mine so that they can re enter it?

    That does not appear to be the case, from what I can tell it is asking for a wireless security password that looks like it is 8 characters long not 10. Is there a way to find it on my computer?

I have a linksys wireless G broadband router and have lost the security code to enter on the other laptops in our house. Can you help?


Hi.

The only solution is to reset your router to the factory defaults.

To do this, use an unfolded metal paper clip and push it in the small hole near the power connection for 5 seconds while your router in powered on.

This procedure will erase all passwords and security settings.

Make sure you re-enter a new password and setup wireless security after reset.

To enter your router config. Open your web browser and type 192.168.1.1 After a reset left the user name or login blank and the password is: admin.

Then you will be able to set your new security key.

My kids pressed the logo button on front panel of linksys wireless. I can connect back to internet but lost my security. How to get back?


Hi shelltiki,

Setting up a password for your rotuer make it the wireless connection secure from others. For you to make the wireless connection secure you need to access the router page just open a browser then type http://192.168.1.1. the username is blank and the password is admin. go to the wireless settings page, Select Either WEP, WPA or WPA2 as the security type to make it secure then personalize your Network Key or Passphrase to make it secure. Connect your computer then if prompt to enter a password enter your Network Key.


Rate me if this will help you so that i can help other people.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Can you connect directly to your router using an ethernet cable?

Go into your settings on the router and choose a security key.

Set the same key for your laptops etc..

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 '.

My roommates laptop is connecting to the internet, mine won't


Sometimes the key length would change for security purposes. What you have to make sure is that you are entering the correct network key.
Use a connected computer like your roommates laptop or hardwired connect you laptop to the router using an ethernet cable to access the setup page of the router.

In your browser's address bar, type 192.168.1.1. By default, leave the username blank, password is admin.
Go to Wireless -> Wireless security.
You will see the network key. Just copy that and enter it on your laptop.
I hope this helps!

Brought a new laptop with wireless installed have a philips SNB5600 but have lost the security key how can i get the code


go to the wireless access point admin settings (not on your wireless adapter on your laptop). then check wireless security settings. if you see something there such as security key, that is the security key that you need to set up on your laptop. if security key is not visible, try to see if there is an option there which says unmask to show the security key, then copy it to your laptop. if all else fails, change the security key in the wireless access point and change all the wireless adapters that connect to it accordingly to the new security key you set it up.

Unable to encrypt router


you have to check if you have the wep key enabled. when you put in the wep key, it should also be enabled so that your wireless network should say security-enabled wireless network. make sure to disconnect and connect again on your network after changing the settings to refresh your connection. hope this helps.

HP laptop not recognizing Linksys Wireless B Security Key..


The WEP encryption is consist of 10 characters for 64 bit hex, 128 bit hex is 24 characters and WPA is 8 to 63 characters. So it seems that you have a vista computer? The compatible encryption for vista is WPA, sometime using WEP it is not working properly. So I might advise you to access the configuration of your router (192.168.1.1) and change the wireless settings of your router to WPA-Personal.
