Question about Linksys Wireless-G Broadband Router
HOW DO I FIND MY NETWORK KEY NUMBER FOR MY LINKSYS ROUTER TO MAKE ME GET ON LINE WITH MY LAP TOP
Unfortunately, you cant 'recover' your network password. You will need to reset the router and apply a new password. In order to do this, you need your laptop or computer near the router and an ethernet cord connecting the two. Simply follow these directions.
1.) on the back of the unit is a small pin hole with the word RESET above it. hold this down for about 30 seconds. this is a hard reset.
2.) connect your pc to one of the routers ports and open your browser (no worries if you cant get to perezhilton.com yet, it will only take a moment)
3.) in your browsers address bar, type "http://192.168.1.1". This is the URL to access the router.
4.) you will see a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. The default username and password will be either:
a.) username= [blank] ; password= admin
b.) username= admin; password = admin
5.) Once you re past the login screen, you can reconfigure the router.
6.) Go to the management tab and chance the admin password to something else so other people cant access your router.
7.) Your router should work after you apply these settings and restart your computer but i HIGHLY suggest enabling either WEP or WAP security.

We need to access the router's web interface to get the network key. You need a PC that's physically connected to the router (ethernet connection).
Follow these steps:
Step 1 Open your Internet browser and type the IP address of the router in the address bar (http://192.168.1.1) . The default IP address is 192.168.1.1 . At the login, leave the username blank and type your password (default password is admin). Click the OK button.
Step 2 Click the Wireless tab > then select Wireless Security (right below the Wireless tab).
Step 3 Under Wireless Security tab, you can see the security setting with the Network key.
If the router's security is set to WEP - look for Key 1 (either a 10 or 26 character password).
If the router is set to WPA Personal, look for Shared key or Passphrase.
I hope that helps!
Good luck and have a nice day!
