The router should have a reset button on it somewhere. Usually its a pinhole which requires a toothpick or paperclip or something equivalent. If the device does not have this, either post the brand/model here or contact the manufacturer. Some manufacturers have a universal code you can use to bypass the security and reset your password.

How do i find my wep key or wpa key


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Can't remember my wep code. Need wep code for DSL, for laptop, & other game systems


Connect your computer to one of the ports at the back of your router with a DSL cable.

  • Open a web browser and type "http://192.168.1.1/" in the address bar. This will bring up your administration page for your router.
  • Log in by leaving the username blank and use "Admin" for the password. These are the username and password you use if you haven't already set something up previously.
  • Click on the "Wireless" tab at the top of the screen, and then on the"Wireless Security" tab.

    If I understand this correctly, Your work's IT people setup your router and you need the Security Password to access?

    You should ask your work's IT people for the password.
    If you are asking how to break that security key, I'm am not sure you will find that info here.

    Need to secure my wireless router. do not know how?


    Go to your wireless router software and click on the security setting section. Create a WEP key by providing a secret code or password that restricts access to the network. (to get access type http://192.168.0.1) Step2Be sure to choose a key with a combination of letters, numbers and symbols. These types of codes are the most difficult to break. Step3Click on the wireless connections options on your wireless router software. Find your router from the list of found servers and click on security settings. Step4Add the WEP key that you used on the main router settings to the wireless device. A lock symbol should now appear next to the name of your wireless router from the list of available routers. Step5Access the Internet via your router using only devices that have the WEP installed in their wireless settings. Without it, they will not be able to complete the connections to the network. This information must be added to all wireless devices that you plan to access via the router.

    Have wireless network at home trying to add my sons laptop to network but have forgot security key/passphrase which laptop is asking for


    All you need to do is log into the router usually with the pc that is attached to the router (wired) by typing into the run command box http://192.168.1.1 Depending on the brand of router you'll either put in admin and no password or admin for the password or admin and password for password. Once in the router go to the wireless security tab and you can see the network key. Hope this helps

    Yo! if you dont remember the password try connecting the laptop to the router to access the routers page or you could also do it on the main PC that is physically connected to the router.

    go to the setup page of the router normally routers ip would be 192.168.1.1 but not always depends on the manufacturer.

    once your on the setuppage of the router try to go to wireless section and wireless security.
    on that you can get the wireless key that should work.

    Peace.

    Hello, I have a RCA digital broadband model #DHG535-2 modem from comcast, i recently purchased a Linksys wireless-g broadband router model #WRT54G2V1 The problem I am having is connecting from my laptop...


    If your trying to connect wirelessly with your laptop make sure that you have the following information of the router;
    1. Wireless network name or SSID
    2. Wireless security settings; WEP 64/128 bit ot WPA

    If your not familiar with the settings then you may need to access the setup page of your wireless router. Hardwire the laptop to the router or if you have a main computer that is already connected with an ethernet cable, open Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox or any web browser you are currently using. On the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 (router's default IP), then you will receive a pop up asking for a username and a password, there is no username and for the password type "admin" then click the Wireless tab on the router and check the basic wireless settings, if your not comportable with the settings then change the following; SSID - use a name that is easy to remember, Channel - 1,6, 11 is ideal, then for the Wireless Security choose WPA Personal and enter a 8 digit WPA Passphrase(pasword), remember to click save settings every tab that yuo go to or else the settings will na take effect. Then check if the laptop will detect the signal of the router and when it prompts you for a password or network key, just enter the 8 digit code that you have configured earlier.

    If you have further questions regarding the setup of the router just post a reply and I'll to give you a response if my sched will allow me.

    Hope this will atleast provide you with some idea in setting the router properly for your laptop.

    Regards,

    Maybe provide the brand of router.. Anyway, I have lost my details as well, several times over the last couple of years.. It's just a case of accessing the router (via web browser, using the correct IP address for your brand of router).. Then you can delete the existing network & add a complete new one. You get to use a new key & passphrase. If you need further help, please provide your router brand & model. Rgds, dave

    Belkin n wireless


    Open the router control panel using Internet Explorer. Open wireless page and look for security option. Simplest security measure is setting up a 64b wep encription key it is made of 10 exadecimal numbers (0..9-A..F). It is still a good option to secure home based network. Refer to the router manual for information on how to open the router control panel using internet explorer. Remember to save all changes made to the router before restarting it.

    Hope it may help!
