Cant access the wireless internet


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Where do find my security key to connect to the internet..I,m trying to set up a new computer..Thanks


If you have access to a wireless computer that is already connected to and operating on your network, then you should go here and download this utility http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=Im-88880-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en
and then run it. Once it fully scans, click on Show Advanced Tools in the bottom left of the window and select Retrieve WPA/WEP Key, it will be on the right side.

If you do NOT have a wireless computer available, then you need to loginto your router (sorry, but I do not know which router you have) and go to the wireless page. If you have WEP, just copy down the WEP key that has the radial button selected (green dot) and that is your key. If you have WPA, copy the Preshared key.

If you do not know how to get to your router setup, go to a computer that is conencted to your router by a LAN cord. Go to Start > Run and in the Run window type CMD. If you have Vista or Win 7, go to the Start Orb and just type CMD into the serch bar. In the command prompt window type IPCONFIG /ALL now look for Default Gateway (that's your router) and copy down the IP Address.
Now open a web browser utility and type that IP Address into the address bar.

Where is my wep key located


a WEP key is a group of numbers assigned automatically or manually to the wireless router for security so anyone who does not know the key can't access your wireless network.

I just got a laptop, and i am trying to connect it to tthe router, it's says i need a wep/wap key. where can i find that key?


The wep key has to be created on the router so if you didn't set it up then you need to ask the person who did what it is. Assuming that it is your router and you lost or forgot the key then you can get into the router with a computer that is hardwired to the router. So you plug your laptop into the router and open up internet explorer. In the address bar you need to put in the router's address (Ex: linksys is 192.168.1.1) this will pull up the router menu default login is admin and password admin or root. (if these have been changed then you can push in the reset button on the back but this will wipe out everything and you'll have to set it up again,not preferable.) If you have another router then you can get online on another computer and look these default codes up for your router. If these work then you are in the menu and you can go to security section and create a new wep (or take it off completely again not preferable) make sure to save the changes you have made before getting out of the menu and write down the wep you created or save it in a word doc. Now you can unhook your laptop and try to connect wirelessly when it asks for a wep put in the key you created,reenter it and hit connect and you should be good to go.

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.

I have a new computer laptop and need to connect to my router WRT54GS Ser # CGN10D815901 and can't get on the internet. I think I just need my scurity key. I am WEP security code, correct? I had the piece...


  1. Access the router's setup page using a computer that is wired or physically connected to the router.
  2. To access router's setup page, launch IE and on the address field type 192.168.1.1 (which is the default IP address of Linksys routers). Then, it will ask for a username and password. By default, there is no username. The password is admin.
  3. Once you're in the Linksys setup, go to WIRELESS tab. There is a subtab called Wireless Security.
  4. Click on wireless security tab and you will find there the security key or wep key that is enabled in your router.
Hope this helps!

How do i unlock the signal from my wrt54gs v.6 on the other computer


You will need to use the same WEP (Wireless Encryption Protocol) Key that you used on the other computer. Or, you can press the reset button (located on the back of your Linksys router) for at least 10 seconds while powered on to reset it to default (unsecured wireless network), and then readdress your router (by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of a browser) to set up your security with a new WEP (Wireless Encryption Protocol) Key.

I hope this helps, and Good luck.
