You require a wired or connected PC
How do I find out my Wireless key (WEP or WPA) ?

There are numerous ways to find out these values so I will cover a few.

Easy Solution (you should be so lucky)
Sometimes the value for the Wireless Key is written on the underneath of the router, look for SSID (this is the network name) and WEP or WPA key (called the encryption key)

Alternative Method
In order to find out your Wireless Network Key you must first use a cable to connect to your router.

Once connected check that you are connected to the internet by opening Internet Explorer

The address or the router is usually one of the following values:-

http://192.168.0.1
http://192.168.1.1
http://10.10.0.2
http://192.168.2.1
http://192.168.2.254

Try clicking on each and see if you get a logon box popping up

If you do, that is the correct address for your Wireless router, note it down.

If the box has the username and password completed, then click OK

If there is no value for username try "admin" and for the password try one of the following "password", "admin",

Also try nothing for the username and "admin" for the password

Sometimes the value for these are written on the underneath of the router

Once the router page is displayed, look for an item called Wireless Settings.
Next see if a further option for Wireless Security exists.
The names of these items vary from Router to Router

Once security is displayed the SSID (Network Names) and the WPA or WEP Key can be found.

You are looking for a Wireless Security key, this is not the Linksys password for the admin portion, look on the bottom it maybe there if not changed. Else goto the router home page and check it there something like 192.168.0.1. or 192.168.1.1 etc etc

Wireless light is lit on router (Westell 327W) but still unable to connect wirelessly. When I go to "connect to a network" it says security-enabled network.


You have somehow managed to enable security on your wireless (in my opinion should always be enabled) but if you dont know the passcode or want it disabled then in your web browser type '10.1.1.1' or '192.168.0.1' into the URL bar. Only one of those URL's will work.Then type your username and password (default username should be 'admin' default password should be '0000', it will say in instruction manual) then search through the configuration pages until you find the wireless security and change it accordingly. Sorry I cant give precise help because I dont have that brand of equipment, but you instruction manual should help

I have linksys, may itouch wont connect to the internet with it


I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to the network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing the router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptop2_bing.gif but that was a small price.

You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.

Good luck!

Limited connection on wireless signal


1. Try to reset your router to a factory defaults.
2. Try to change the wireless channel
3. If you have a 2.4 GHz phone in your house, it might interfere with your wireless network since it's using the same frequency.

Cant connect to internet from laptop


The network key is stored in the router, and your manual will tell you how to access it.
If you don't have access to the router's web page, you'll need to reset the router and start over.
