Re: need to find network key so i can place on my labtop
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

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

Try the following procedure on a computer that's directly connected to one of the router ports with an ethernet cable. This procedure will not work if you're connected wirelessly. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the Wireless tab and then the Wireless Security sub-tab. You can set up encryption on your wireless network using this screen. First select the security mode you want to use. I believe WPA gives better security but I've had some trouble using it on older computers. I use WEP. I've been able to get this encryption scheme to work with all of my computers. Next select the type of encryption. I like 128 bit 26 hex digits. Next enter a pass phrase and hit generate. The pass phrase is like a password. It should now generate four 26 character keys made up of various letters and numbers. Write down the first key and make sure you've checked the 1 box for default transmit key. Save your setting and exit. You wireless network is now secure. If you try to connect to it using a wireless device you will be prompted for a security key. Depending on the operating system you're running, you may just be able to enter the pass phrase or you may need to enter the 26 character key you wrote down. You should only have to do this once for each of your wireless computers. After the first time the computer connects to the secured network it should automatically remember the security code. I hope this advice helps you out.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
first go to router setting page, for access router page the default ip add is 192.168.1.1 try this first, if the router page is not open then check the default Gateway in u r pc and keep the ip add of ur pc ob tend automatically
1. when the page is open then go to wireless potion>wireless security> 2. then select encryption type WEP > 64 bits 3. then type pass phrase>click on "generate network key" 4. routher will generate 4 network key , select first key as wireless security key. 5. save this settings. now the wireless connectivity automatically disconnected
6. now search the wireless network on u r pc . 7. when u get u r wireless network , then connect to this network now the wireless network key is ask bye system , 8. type the network key which generated by router .
