You need to log into the router's setup page, with D-Link it is usually 192.168.0.1. It will ask you for the password. Default is usually admin. When you log in, go to the wireless tab and then security. There you will see the security key.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My Xbox360 is asking for a pass phrase for Belkin but I don't know what a pass phrase is because its not on the bottom of my router?


The "passphrase" is the WPA2 security password that the router uses to permit access to the wireless network. ALL wireless devices on the network have to use this password to get onto the network. Whomever is controlling the router should know this password.

What is a WEP Key?


Wireless networks broadcast messages using a radio and are thus more susceptible to eavesdropping than wired networks. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the first in a line of increasingly secure algorithms that include WPA and WPA2 used to secure IEEE 802.11 wireless networks.

Setting WEP up is usually done from the wireless security tab of your router configuration, this is most often accessed from your computer using the web address http: 92.168.1.1 by default. It consists of a pass-phrase and a key. the pass-phrase is used to generate an encryption key, this is then necessary to use any packets (Bits of data) transferred over the air.

Newer routers allow this configuration to be done through a visual application as well.

How do I prevent my neighbor from using my wireless router?


If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router, your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical, it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available" by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow". Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are granted access.

These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.

I am trying to connect my wireless printer to the router, but when it comes to the WEP code, the one I have does not work. Is there a way to reset the WEP code?


Hi glenncj,

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 blank and 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.
You can also reset the router by pressing the Reset button at the back of it for 15-30 seconds using a Pen and a Paper Clip.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

What if i want to secure it. do i need the cd?


Im not sure what you are saying is your problem.

To secure your wireless network you first need to log into your routers configuration settings to do that in your address bar of your browser type http://192.168.0.2 enable either WEP or WPA security and tell it what security key or pass phrase to use.

Then on your computer when you try to connect to your wireless routers signal it will ask you to put in the security key or pass phrase you selected and thats that. You are secure.

What is wpa pass phrase while setting wireless printer


WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.

What is my wep key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a deprecated algorithm used to secure IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. Wireless networks broadcast messages using a radio and are thus more susceptible to eavesdropping than wired networks.

Setting WEP up is done from the wireless security tab of your router configuration, this is usually accessed from your computer using the web address http:\\192.168.1.1 by default. It consists of a pass-phrase and a key. the pass-phrase is used to generate an encryption key, this is then necessary to use any packets (Bits of data) transferred over the air.

Beginning in 2001, several serious weaknesses were identified by cryptanalysts with the result that today a WEP connection can be cracked with readily available software within minutes.[2] Within a few months the IEEE created a new 802.11i task force to counteract the problems. By 2003, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced that WEP had been superseded by Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which was a subset of then upcoming 802.11i amendment. Finally in 2004, with the ratification of the full 802.11i standard (i.e., WPA2)

Need a securty code


Regarding your concern, please note that in order to get the network key/password on the NETGEAR router (MODEL_NUMBER), we need to login to the router's web interface using any computer which is physically connected to the router.

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router using an Ethernet cable in order to find the network/security key:

1. Open the browser (like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1', 'http://www.routerlogin.net' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. When prompted for Username and Password please enter Username as 'admin' and Password as 'password' (please note that both Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings' under Setup from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the pass phrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the NETGEAR router's wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the pass phrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

How do I put security on my Belkin 54g router


You set your security by enabling WEP.

When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.

I can't access my wireless internet, asking for a pass phrase


the D Link router is what is causing the issue - Cut your losses and get a linksys ( netgears are ok so maybe one of those ) but avoid D Link and Belkin equipment as far as wireless or networking goes.

An apple airport extreme ( although a bit more expensive ) are very good.
