Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page. Open a browser and type in 192.168.1.1 ( on a Linksys router) and login (default password is admin)
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based, setup page appears, click Wireless and select Wireless Security.There you should see your encryption security key or paraphrase.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I go to connect and now a box appears Security key or passphrase? I have two lap tops no problem but I just got another one this appears


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

We cannot log on with the assigned password


Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin)and password by default the password is 1234 unless it has already been changed
from the left-hand navigation menu of the router manager,select wireles set up>wireless settings
from the center screen,select your encrytion type from under the Security Options heading
if the wireless network passphrase is visible,review it and use it to log on devices onto your network.
If it is not visible you can change your wireless passphrase but changing your passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection
Connect your computer to the router using an Ethernet Cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking apply.
If you cannot log into your router:Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.

If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.



hope this helps

Passphrase


ok....
it seems that you are tring to connect to someone elses secured network which means you will not be able to connect to this wireless network as it has security enabled in it and the passphrase is know to the person who has setup this network....what i can suggest is that you can try connecting to unsecured networks if it is available...if there is no networks unsecured networks available then you will not be able to connect to the internet wirelessly..

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.
