Login to your router and check to see if wireless security is setup:
Use Internet Explorer and type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.
Login using the password you created when you setup the router.

You can view the wireless security settings and retrieve the key.
If security is not setup you can enable it....directions here:

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If to create a newKey (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key (Wep/Wpa Key) or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

What can I do if I forgot my network key?


The network key is the wireless router's encryption key.
The WEP or WPA or WPA2 key is configured in the router's wireless setting.

Go to the wireless settings to view the network (encryption) key or create a new encryption key.

L have a 3500---4500 wireless printer and need a security network key HELP not very good at pc so explaine in laymen terms Thank you


The security key is something you or whoever set up your network created unless your wireless router had one preset - check the router for a label which may contain the key. If you cannot find it please provide the router brand and model number.
