Hi.......Login to your router using http://192.168.1.1 Enter username and password.

Go to Wireless > Wireless security. Your network key should be there, labelled WPA Shared Key or Shared Key (if using WPA encryption).

SOURCE: i bought new laptop. i try to connect internet .

Hi,

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.1.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as password (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

SOURCE: hello. my problem goes this

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.

Trying to set up wifi on new phone and its says need password and i dont remember setting one. so can't get access to internet


The default password of the router is admin. If you have set up a password before, it will not recognize the default admin.Hold the reset button (at the back) of the router for 10secs and it will retrieve the default admin...To change the default password, lauch internet explorer(pc should be connected to the router hardwired), type on the address bar, 192.168.1.1--it willl prompt for a username and password, leave username blank and password will be admin...It willl bring you to the set up page of the router..click on the administration tab and from there you can create your new password for your router.

I m having samsung monte and when i try to start m.facebook it cannot connect to the internet .also i m not using wifi


You need to be connected to the internet first. You need to connect to a Wifi hotspot by turning on Wifi on your phone, and connecting. Your phone says it can't connect because you have no active internet connection.
Sorry I can't provide much more detail, but the reason is because everyone's internet router is different and you need to know the password.
Good luck!

I just purchased a Nook eBook and I need my WiFi password to make it work. How can I create and reset a new password?


I assume you already have WiFi, if you don't, I suggest going out to wal-mart and buying a cheap wireless router to get you started. Then the instructions should explain how to get the password set up.
If you already have WiFi and the problem is that you forgot your password, then this should be able to be fixed easily if you know or have not changed the password for your WiFi router. Below is a set of steps to resolve the issue. The only requirement is a computer connected to the same router via WiFi or Ethernet.
1. Open Command Prompt (in windows) or open Terminal (in Mac OSX) 2. In the command line, enter "ipconfig" and press enter. 3. Look for Default Gateway and remember the corresponding IP Address. (Format: ###.###.###.###) It might look like 192.168.2.1 but not necessarily. 4. Remember that IP Address (write it down, copy it, do something). 5. Open your favorite web browser and enter that IP Address into the URL box. 6. This should ask you login, if it doesn't, skip step 7. 7. use the username that you set up the router with, or if you didn't change it, try using "admin" as the username and "admin" as the password. Try not using a password. If you still can't figure it out, use google to try and find the default password for your brand of router. 8. Once logged in, you can restore factory settings, or change your WiFi Password.

Having more information would have been helpful. (Aka - Router Brand, Is it your router, are any computers connected to it) Hope this was helpful.

If you haven't configured your phone to access the internet yet, and you want to do it through your network carrier's data plan, bear in mind their APN settings. Contact they, in case you don't know such data. Then, go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point names'. Once there, press 'Menu > New APN', and fill in a 'Name' for it, and, at least, your carrier's data under 'APN', 'Username' and 'Password'. Then, press 'Menu > Save'. Press the back button as many times as required for you to reach the home screen you were in, prior you started making these changes.

On the other hand, if you want to access the internet through wifi (e.g. your home's wireless network, or an internet cafe), go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks' and tick the 'Wi-Fi' checkbox, in order to turn your phone's wifi radio on. Then, tap 'Wi-Fi settings', and, if the network you want to connect your phone to doesn't appear on the available networks list (e.g. a hidden network), tap 'Add Wi-Fi' network' and fill in 'Network SSID', select the security method, and fill in the password, if needed. When you finish, tap 'Save'. You can also specify how your phone will use its wifi radio. Tap 'Menu > Advanced > 'Wi-Fi sleep policy'. Again, press the back button as many times as required to return to the home screen.
Hope it works for you.

Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.

Regards,
Carlos

Forgot lock screen pattern takes me to username for g mail and dont know it any suggestions?


IDK about a simple legitimate fix for this. I was just messin around with the pattern, hit "forgot pattern" to see what it does. It asks me for the Google username and password, but has no way for me to go back! I know the pattern! The Motorola Droid is free from this problem, when on the forgot password screen, it still allows me to go back to the pattern screen. Very disappointing HTC...

On the other hand, there is a bit of a "hack" that can be used to solve this. Create a new Google account. Then call the locked phone from another phone. While in the call, you have full access to the phone. Press home, go into your settings, and add your new Gmail account into the phone. End the call, go back, and enter your new Gmail info. You may also need to enable Wifi while the call is still connected, I'm not sure if 3G will work for the sync while the phone is "locked".
