You have to set up the WEP key. Open internet explorer and enter and click on the wireless tab to set up the security key - there you can create a WEP, or WPA key - remember the key so that you cab enter it into the laptop.

Need security code for new laptop

Hi there,

I think we were disconnected with the chat session. Well, here is what you do, after you have reset the router, try connecting the laptop again to the network. It should not ask for a password this time. Please let me know. If this solved the problem, please do not forget to click the End Session button to properly close the chat and to accept the solution I provided. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a d-link 655. My daughter is home with her laptop and when she tries to connect, it asks for a password...We;ve tried all the numbers on the bottom of the router...what's the problem? Sue

If your computer is running WindowsXP, then the simplest thing is to download WirelessKeyView from (don't just google that name and download from a random site you've never heard of)

If your D-Link is using WEP encryption, you'll see the password directly.
If it's running WPA-PSK encryption, you'll either see the password directly, or you'll see a long key that looks like random letters and numbers. Go ahead and have your daughter type that key in exactly as it's shown, and she'll be able to connect.

The other way is to connect to your D-Link configuration service and see if it displays the password for you. That's much more involved, but I can walk you through it if you want to go that route, just post back here and we'll get started.

And please remember to hit the "thumbs-up" button for me before you go!

Router will not reconize 3rd computer

It is possible that the router has a wireless security enabled into it. The laptop needs the security key for it to connect to the wireless network. You can check the security enabled in your router from your router's User Interface page.

To access your router's page; launch IE from a computer that is working through the router. Then on the address field, type It will open a window asking for a username and password. The default password to get into the router's page is admin.

Then, once you're in the router's User Interface, the main page that will open is the SETUP, beside it is WIRELESS tab. Click on it, then verify the wireless network name or SSID. Whatever name configured on it, is the name the laptop should connect to.

Then, there is a subtab under the main tab WIRELESS. The sub-tab is called, Wireless Security. Click on Wireless Security tab and then look for the netwok key enabled. Take note of the key which your laptop will be neeeding.

Hope this helps!
