You need to reset your router. Look on the back of the router. There should be a reset option. Press and on the rest button with a stick pin or something. Unplug the cable/dsl modem from the ac outlet. Then unplug the router from the ac. Plug the cable/dsl modem back in wait a few minutes then plug in your router. You need your router setup software again so you can rest your wifi security. When you are setting it back up you can see your WiFi key you can log on.

Hope this help.

Please rate.

I'm trying to connect wirelessly, but its asking for a sercurity key code! What is this and where do I find it? Help, pls!


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Trying to connect nintendo but i have no idea what the security code is


If you are trying to connect to a wireless connection with your nintendo system and are being asked for the security code you can do a few things to find it out. If you already have a computer hooked up to this internet connection (wirelessly or wired) then open up a brower on that computer. In the address bar at the top (where you type "www.") type in 192.168.1.1 and it should prompt you for a username and password. The default for these are both "admin". Once you clear the security you should be taken to an internet settings screen. Search for the tab that says "WEP key" and click it. The WEP key is your internet security code. If there are multiple WEP keys, any of the options will work. Type in one of the options when prompted for the security code on your nintendo console and you should be good to go! If this doesn't work, you should contact either nintendo for help or your internet service provider for the security code. Let me know if you need anything else!

Not able to find wep code to connect my lap top to internet


Hello,
If you require the WEP key for the wireless network you will have to log in to the router interface and retrieve it. You can try the following steps..
1) Open internet explorer on any computer connected wired to the router. ( IF no computer is connected then connect your laptop through an Ethernet cable to the LAN slot on the router) 2) Delete everything from the address bar and type http://192.168.2.1 and hit enter. 3) Towards the left side under wireless click on security. 4) Now it will ask for the login password, do not type anything..just hit enter. 5) Now you will be in wireless security page. You should see Key 1, Key 2, Key 3 and Key 4. The check mark selected on either of the four with number or numbers and letters in it are the password. Make a note of it. 6) Now connect to the wireless network using the keys u made a note of.
Hope this helped.

How to put a new wep key in laptop


Not exactly sure what you're trying to do so I'll go over a few things. If you're just trting to connect to a secured wireless network, click on the little icon in your task bar on the bottom right hand of your screen. Click" Connect to Networks" or "Connect or Disconnect" something similar to this. A list of wireless networks in range will appear. Click on the one you want to connect to and it will prompt you to put in the WEP key whick is usually written on the bottom of the router somewhere, if its not, connect your router to your computer with a cord. Open Internet explorer and in the search bar type 192.168.1.1 (This may vary but is usually similar...i e. 192.168.0.0, 192.168.0.1...etc. Just look up the router on google and it will tell you.) Anyway, after you enter this in the search bar, hit enter, now you are in your router. If you havent changed anything, the user name should be admin and password is either blank or password from here, go to wireless security. you can change the wep key here. Hope this helps.

Cant find my wifi code to open a network


Your WEP is the security key you set in your router to allow other authorised devices to access your network. When you set it up, you set the WEP to protect your network from others accessing it without the key. So now all you have to do is set the WEP (security) key in your laptop the same as your router and you're cookin'. The same key must be used to connect any thing, iPhone, Wii, Play Station, anything that has WiIFi capabilty.

Wireless connection to the 2 Wire modem


Hi

Most of the 2wire gateways have the WEP key or the encryption code on the bottom of it. It would a 10 digit Number of a Five Character one within square brackets.
Other wise you can go to the gateway page by accessing http://192.168.1.1 on another system which is already going online using the gateway or wired to it and in the gateway page under wireless you would find the WEP key incase the default key on the bottom of the 2wire does not work.

Do reply incase this has resolved your issue or you need more help.

Thank you

you need a WEP key i'm guessing you're trying to say. go to a browser, type in the address bar http://192.168.0.1 and then login. the defult login name is either user or admin. the defulte password is either password or 12345. after logging in, find the menu that says wireless. from there you can either disable the WEP key, or write down the WEP key and type that into your laptop when it tries to connect. disabling the WEP key brings down your internet local security, but is not a problem is you don't live too close to anyone
