If you are connecting to your own router and not someone elses by mistake, omeone has setup a security key on your router. It doesn't have one by default. Ask whomever installed the router what it is. Hope this helps!

I cant access wirless connection to my computer,there is wire conn ,but not wirless


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. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

I am trying to hook up a new wireless printer, and I need to know a couple of issues. My motem is an Actiontec M1000 ssid is myquest3677 and I need to find the password, and the WLAN access point/router


Hi,

Welcome to FIxya. If you need you Security Key or Password (Network Key) on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.0.1, the Default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings and you'll find the Network Key or Passphrase (Password). You can alsoThen Personalize you Network Key or Passphrase so that you can easily remember it. Then WLAN Access point is the Network Name or SSid which is myquest3677

Thanks for using Fixya.

Network key?


Network key is the password by which the wireless network is secure,,,,it is the password setup by you when u configured the router ,,,,,in case of wpa security this network is known as passphrase or shared key.In case of wep security it is key1.
If you still do not remember it then you need to login into the router setup page by the default gateway u r getting in command prompt after typing ipconfig .and you can login into router and can check the key

My router is hooked up and working with dsl. but my wireless adapter is not. wrt54g


To check the wireless settings, use a computer that can get online or is hardwired connected to the router.

Follow the steps below:

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type 192.168.1.1

2. It will prompt you for the username and password. By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

3. Go to the Wireless tab.

4. Click the Wireless Security tab.

a. If the mode is WEP, take note of the Passphrase and Key (you need to copy only the default transmit key). If WEP encryption is 64 bits, you have to copy the 10 digits security key.

NOTE: If you are using a Linksys wireless adapter on the additional computer, you may use the passphrase for the security key.

b. If the mode is WPA, copy the Personal key or the Enterprise Key.

5. On the wireless adapter's settings, you should be able to detect your SSID and then just type the passphrase or security key.

Wirless connection


I think you asked this twice, but here is my suggestion:

this information is setup at the router (Access Point) and you will need to get the information from there.. Although there are ways to 'hack' this information, I will not tell you how to do this here, as we do not want to enable 'hackers'...

You need to hard wire the computer to the Access Point and enter the configuration of the device.. within it, you will find the SSID (name of the wifi network connection) and the type of encryption (WEP, WAP, etc.). From this page, you can discover the Passphrase or Encryped Password, which will allow you to access the WiFi connection.
