You need to go to Main PC( one that is wired to the router). Open a browser and type in 192.168.1.1 When the login box opens, log into to this WRT54G , using the default password, admin, leave the username blank.On the setup page you have wireless tab under which you have wireless security. Click on Wireless Security here, if you have selected Security Mode as WEP then key1 is your WEP KEY.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

The router has WEP or WPA, it locked with a security code, if you know the owner you could ask for it

1. connect the pc/laptop straight from the router using an ethernet cable.

2.Open a Web browser on your computer, and connect to the router by typing
http://192.168.0.1 or www.routerlogin.com in the address field of your browser.

3.When prompted, enter the router default user name of admin, and default password of password. The Router Status screen will come up.

4. Select Wireless Settings from the main menu to display the Wireless Settings screen.

from there you'll be able to view your network key.

Note: here's the download link for your netgear user manual.

Can I use a wireless router connected to a PC to access my wireless network?


Yes you can.

Your high speed internet modem connects to the first ethernet jack on the rear of the router and your desktop PC to the second jack.

Folow the installation instructions that were packed with your router. Install the CD when prompted. The setup program will guide you through connecting to the internet through your router and enabling the wireless capabilities of the router to access your networked computers.

If you determine that this information was of assistance to you, please rate me on the FixYa website.

I have a new laptop and am unable to access wireless with the linksys router ( it worked on my old pc, before it died) The infor on my router reads: linksys wrt100 range plus wireless router


Check if the wireless security is ON. If yes, then you will need to know the wireless network key.

To check the settings on the router on a connected computer, use a web browser and in the address bar type: 192.168.1.1.

By default leave the username blank, then the password is admin.

Go to Wireless, take note of the SSID.

Then go to Wireless security, copy the pre-shared key/ wireless network key.

On your new laptop, view the available networks, you should see your SSID. It will prompt you to enter the network key, just type the wireless network key.

I hope this helps!

Where is the wep key located on my virgin router


Connect your desktop computer to your Belkin router, and access the router's built-in web-server software. Then, run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to configure the router's wireless networking capabilities. As part of that process, you will be required to _create_ a "WEP-key" value. Use that value when configuring the wireless capability of your PS3.

I set up my d-link dr615 with my pc. Seems fine.


Hi, you need to make sure that the wireless AP is enabled on the setup. Switch your laptop wireless on and see if you can detect the wireless network as available. You now need to click on the the network and click on connect. If your router is configured with WEP/WPA security you will be prompted for the security key. If you don't know what this is you can change it in the router configuration.

My netgear wgr614 is not working. I have no


To establish a wireless connection between the router and computer, the router’s wireless setting (SSID or Network Name, Channel, and Mode of communication) has to be configured. Please follow the steps below to configure the wireless settings on your NETGEAR router.
  1. Connect a computer to the LAN port of the router using an ethernet cable.
  2. Open up a browser and type in the following URL: http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (depending on the model number of the router)
  3. Type the Username as admin, and Password as password. Then click OK.
    1. To change the Wireless settings, click Wireless Settings under Setup on the left menu bar.
  1. Under Wireless Network, (make a note of these settings, you need these values to configure your wireless clients)
2.
    • Change SSID from default NETGEAR to any desired name (for e.g. Home)
    • Select the Region as applicable - Incorrect selection may cause performance problems.
    • Select any one of the available Channel.
    • Apply the changes
Configuring Wireless Clients:
The steps explained below use the Windows XP wireless client. If your card came with
its own wireless configuration utility, you may use that as well.
  1. Open the Control Panel from the Start Menu.
  1. Right-click Wireless Network Connection and choose Properties.
  1. on the Wireless Networks tab and if unchecked, check the box for Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings.
Then click OK.
  1. Right-click on Wireless Network Connection, Select View Available Wireless Networks
  1. This will lists all the available wireless networks in range. Select your network from the list and click Connect.
If you are connecting to a secured wireless network, you will be prompted for a Network key. Type the Network key (if you are using WEP security, make sure you are typing the network key, not the Passphrase) and click Connect
  1. Your network list should now display your connection status. If you are connected and your router is setup for internet access, you are ready to connect to the Internet wirelessly.

Not prompted for network security key


Sir,

Under 'preffered networks', which can be found on the Wireless networls TAB in advanced settings, you will see your network there. Click on it and then hit properties. Under the 'Association' TAB, you will see network authentication, choose WPA-PSK or WPA, but I will imagine that your key is a Pre-shared key. Enter it there. Data encryption will be TKIP and not AES. Go to connection TAB, and make sure the box is checked in that section. If these steps fail, then you can always change your encryption to WEP. You can do this using a computer which connects to your internet through the WPA key. Once connected on that PC, open up command prompy using the command cmd in the RUN box when you click on the START TAB. A black box will open, simply type ipconfig and look for "default gateway"...it will have a number with a few dots, like this one: 192.168.1.254.....etc. Enter this code into your internet browser search bar, and hit enter. Your internet providers interface will show up, you can find a tab which will have something to do with wireless security, and there you can change the WPA to WEP, with a WEP key of your choice. If you are prompted for a password then you should know it! Sometimes, the usernames can be simply 'admin'. If you manage to change your security to WEP, you can use your laptop!

All the best.

Need help dynex security sync wireless


according to the manual that i have, the model if the router that you have, DX-E401, is just a broadband router and doesn't have wireless capability. if that would be the correct model of your device, there's no way that you can enable the wireless encryption since it doesn't have wireless capability. but if you are really using a wireless dynex router, follow the steps below on how to access the router's page and enable the security.

access the router's setup page by typing http://192.168.0.1 on the address bar of your web browser (i.e. internet explorer, firefox etc). by default the username is admin, then leave the password blank.
you will be prompted with the router's page, now go to the wireless settings and look for the encryption field and enbale wpa from there.

if you are not sure whether your router has wireless capability or if you are using another wireless router just give me the exact model and brand then ask me

ciao!
