    The paraphrase is set in your router. What model do you have?

This could be a compatibility problem between the router and the adapter but 9 times out of 10 it is a security problem. Sometimes if you drop down to WEP security it will work and sometimes you need to enter the hex code rather than the passphrase. If that doesn't work try to connect without security, if that works experiment with different security settings. If it doesn't work try and get the latest driver for the adapter to see if that helps.

Passphrase for belkin 3DDD USB Drive

The Passphrase will be saved in the Wireless Router ...

not the USB Adapter

IF you are using a belkin wireless router you can retrive your passphrase as follows



Step 1 : Connect Router - Computer ( Wired)

Step 2 : Open Router Setup by typing on the address bar of internet explorer

Step 3 : On the Left under wireless Click Security

Step 4 : If it asking for a password leave that blank and click submit

Step 5 : On this Page you can find the WPA Key ( If it is a bunch of dots then Uncheck "OBSCURE PSK ")

Step 6 : IF the security mode is WEP then the key 1 will be your password

Trying to connect netgear wireless usb adaptor and i has aske for the security key or passphrase? ISP is iprimus

The USB adapter is attempting to connect to a Router with security setting. You need to know the security key for that wireless network. The individual who constructed the wireless network would have this information.

The passphrase can be found on the router setup page, where all the settings of the router can be found including the wireless security so just need to access the router setup page and get the passphrase from there...........

Wg111v2 adapter wont connect wih inter net

i suggest resetting the router, that's not just a basic power cycle to refresh it, but it means finding the little button on the bottom or back or inside a little hole (through which you poke an unbent paper clip) that if you hold it in for several seconds (or maybe press the button while simultaneously plugging it in/turning it on), the device flushes its entire memory and resets everything to the factory defaults. This means you'll have to reconfigure everything from the get-go, but that's about the only way to go about setting a "new" passphrase when the old one is unknown.
and what i can understand is that the problem is in the usb wifi adapter and NOT the wifi router/access point..hope it helps..please clarify in case of any doubt..

Linksys wusb100 usb adapter

Did you put in your WPA passphrase on the software for the adapter?
Click on the linksys icon in the lower right corner, go to site survey select your network then click connect. Put in your security key. That should do it.

WUSB54GC model wireless adapter won't connect after months of use

Instead of using the passphrase use the wep key 1 that you created on the router page when you generate it using the passphrase.

Then when you try to connect using the linksys wireless monitor just leave the passphrase blank and type in the wep key1 box the key that I mentioned earlier.
