    Kia ora,

    I don't know if this helps but my router is a D-link 2xr DI634M. Thanks for your help.

  • artee57 Jan 01, 2009

    Kia ora,

    I have followed your instructions and can see the password section, but it doesn't disclose the password only a series of dots. Is it possible to change the password from there or how can I see that actual words? Sorry to be a pain.

  • artee57 Jan 01, 2009

    Sorry - How many do you need for WEP which is the current setting.

  • artee57 Jan 01, 2009

    This is becoming ridiculous - How many is it for the WPA type?

    Thanks

  • artee57 Jan 01, 2009

    Thankyou - the problem is solved and key reset. Have saved it in a safe place.

    Open your web interface and type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar, then hit "Enter" or "Return."

    Step2Use "Admin" as the username and leave the password blank when the login screen appears.

    Step3Click "OK." You should now see the D-Link configuration screen.
    Locate the "Home" tab in the D-Link Configuration screen, and click on the "Wireless" button.
    There you will see your security key.

    Write down the password in a secure location.

    Yes , if you are on the wirless security page, you can back out that password and type in a new one. Depending on what encryption you choose, WEP (original) WPA (more secure)you will need to have enough lettersand or numbers for that encryption type. Be aware that older PC' and laptops will only respond to WEP, they won't use WPA without updates to the Network adapter (and the update may not be available).



    Have a Happy and safe New Year!

    on WPA, you can put in a paraphrase and it will gernerate a key. Then on your computers you put in the paraphrase. A paraphase could be one word or more like " gators" or "new york new york"

Why will it not hook to the wireless internet? I have netgear and I have the little thing that plugs in to the computer...


To connect your computer to the Internet via a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

What does it mean by network security key


The name 'network security key' is itself self-explanatory. Every network has a security key and you will need this key to be a part of that network. Just as is the case of any other term that comes from the field of network engineering, there are a lot more details attached to this term, too. So, let us try to understand all the aspects related to network security key

An explanation as to why we need a wireless network security key is not even required. Still, if any one is skeptical about adding any complexity to their available wireless network, just think about it. Your wireless network range can be detected by any other computer with a wireless setup and that comes within the range of the network. So, without you knowing, it's very easy for any user to get connected to your wireless network and gain access to all the data that you intend to share only with those computers with which you have setup your wireless network. So, what is a wireless network security key and how is it useful in such situations?

Well, a network security key or passphrase is something like a password, which any user who wants to connect to your computer will require. But, I think that before we go into the details of figuring out, how to get network security key for wireless computer, we should take a look at the different methods of securing your wireless network
