Have good wirelesssignal, but wont allow me to browse the internet?


To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Passphrase or code to set up netgear router


It sounds like you are setting up or getting into a Workgroup and not a router configuration. To set up your netgear router would not ask you for a passhprase for mshome unless you set the router's SSID to be mshome. Normally the router's SSID will be Netgear or Default unless you changed. During setup you should go into the router's wireless configuration and change the SSID to something such as Your Last Name (ex. Smith_Network) and then set a password under security. If I were you at first I would not set a password. You can always log back into the router and set the password for wireless security later. Just make sure you can see your network SSID from the laptop and try connecting. If it connects then you can go back and set the wireless security.

I have a compaq presario r4000 will no longer connect to wireless after installing a netgear router


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryptionkey.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Where can I find the security key for my Linksys Router? I have the password, but it isn't working to help me get my laptop on line.


Network security 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.

Lap top asking internet security key


The security key is the wireless router's encryption key.
Depending upon the wireless router's settings this encryption key could be the WEP or WPA or WPA2 or a passphrase. The encryption key can be generated using a phrase (passphrase) which generates a group of hexadecimal numbers.

Need to access wirless internet but dont know my security key or passphrase.


Hi connellmandy, no real way around this... Best to reset the wireless router back to factory defaults, reconfigure to lock it down and apply the security key/passphrase to your wireless laptops. you WILL also need to know what your old settings were for example, your ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, your new wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
For Belikin routers:
    •Unplug all LAN cables from the router.
    •Unplug the router power cord connector from the back of the device.

    •Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.

    •Continue to hold the reset button in for at least 15 seconds after inserting the power cord, then release it. After about 10-25 seconds the router will boot and it will be set back to the original factory default settings.
By default the password on the router is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1


For Netgear:

The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. (Try these before resetting the router.) You may be able to get the wireless security key and/or passphrase.

  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password.

    If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.

  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
Good Luck .. hope it helps out. Most routers have a small pinhole at the back of the modem to reset the unit back to factory defaults.

How do I find out my wep key


Looks like you will have to login to the router from the other computer to find the key.
Usually, the address to the router admin screens is one of the following:
192.168.0.1 Linksys
192.168.1.1 NetGear
192.168.10.100 Motorola
Generally 192.168.1.1 will work for most.
Default Login:
Login = admin
Password = password (default - if this doesn't work, then you will need to find it or initialize the router)
Go to the WEP security Screen
NetGear EXAMPLE:
Security Encryption (WEP)
Authentication Type *Automatic*
Encryption Strength *64bit* (64 bit is sufficient - the network overhead is less than 128 bit)
Security Encryption (WEP) Key (The active key below is marked with *)
Passphrase *Blank*
Key 1 abcdabcdab (64 bit examples = 10 hex digits 128 bit will be longer string)
Key 2 dcbadcbadc
Key 3 123456789a
Key 4 *Blank*
Click logout when finished

LinkSys Example:

Wireless Network Menu
Wireless Network Mode Mixed
Wireless Network Name (SSID) MyWireless
Wireless Channel 7 - 2.442 GHZ
Wireless SSID Broadcast Enable
Wireless Security
Security Mode WEP
Default Transmit Key 1 (This is the active key)
WEP Encryption 64 bits (or 128 bits)
Passphrase
Key 1 abcdabcdab
Key 2 dcbadcbadc
Key 3 123456789a
Key 4
There is no logout for the LinkSys. Just disconnect

How do I copy the security key?


the solution to this one is you need to reconfigure the router. you need to disable the security settings for your router. (WEP or WPA) then try to put in a new SSID and new security key. that's the only way that you can get a new security/passphrase key for your network. for further assistance you need to contact the router manufacturer for router configuration.

i hope this helps.
