How to change wireless password?


I'm guessing this is your wifi password for your WPA or WPA2. From the location where your router is located, type in 192.168.1.1 from any PC connected to your local intranet. Enter your router login and password. There should be a tab- maybe called "security" or "administration" that allows you to change your pass code

Computer is asking for a WPA2 password were can I find it


That password allows you to connect to your router or modem/router. The password may be printed on the router. If not, see this article:

What is a WPA2 password?


A WPA2 password is simply a password, nothing more. The difference between a WPA2 password and a WPA password is the amount of security each have-- WPA2 is more secure than WPA.

What is WPA2 pass phrase


Hi.
WPA2 is a method for encrypting wireless connections.
WPA2 passphrase is a password you can set in the routers configuration menu, so that others cannot access your internet connection/home network. It is highly recommended to use it as otherwise your personal data could easily get compromised (I suggest using WPA2-PSK).
If you are asking this because you forgot/don't know your routers password then I suggest resetting it (pressing the reset button with a toothpick or pen for about 10 seconds) this will remove the password, and then you can reconfigure it by following your routers manual.

Setting secured wireless connection


You can enable WEP on your router.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.0.1 to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

Save the settings.

I hope this helps!

Secure network


Normal 0 You should use the strongest form of encryption that all of your wireless devices can support. If they can all do WPA2, then use WPA2. Otherwise you can use WPA.
With WPA or WPA2 you should also use a strong key (sometimes called password or passphrase).

To set up wireless security, you must use a computer that is wired to the router.

Where to find the router settings: The other settings are all found in the "Wireless" or the "Security" section of the router's setup pages, located at 192.168.1.1

First, give your router a unique SSID. Don't use "linksys".
Make sure "SSID Broadcast" is set to "enabled".

Next, leave the router at its default settings (except for the unique SSID), and then use your pc to connect wirelessly to the router. Test your wireless Internet connection and make sure it is working correctly. You must have a properly working wireless connection before setting up wireless security.

To implement wireless security, you need to do one step at a time, then verify that you can still connect your wireless computer to the router.

Next, encrypt your wireless system using the highest level of encryption that all of your wireless devices will support. Common encryption methods are:

WEP - poor (see note below)
WPA (sometimes called PSK, or WPA with TKIP) - good
WPA2 (sometimes called PSK2, or WPA with AES) - best

WPA and WPA2 sometimes come in versions of "personal" and "enterprise". Most home users should use "personal". Also, if you have a choice between AES and TKIP, and your wireless equipment is capable of both, choose AES. With any encryption method, you will need to supply a key (sometimes called a "password").

The wireless devices (computers, printers, etc.) that you have will need to be set up with the SSID, encryption method, and key that matches what you entered in the router.

Retest your system and verify that your wireless Internet connection is still working correctly.

And don't forget to give your router a new login and password.

**Picking Passwords (keys): You should never use a dictionary word as a password. If you use a dictionary word as a password, even WPA2 can be cracked in a few minutes. When you pick your login password and encryption key (or password or passphrase) you should use a random combination of capital letters, small letters, and numbers, but no spaces. A login password should be 12 characters or more. WPA and WPA2 passwords should be at least 24 characters. Note: Your key, password, must not have any spaces in it.

Most home users should have their routers set so that "remote management" of the router is disabled. If you must have this option enabled, then your login password must be increased to a minimum of 24 random characters.

One additional issue is that Windows XP requires a patch to run WPA2. Go to Microsoft Knowledgebase, article ID=917021 and it will direct you to the patch.
Sadly, the patch is not part of the automatic Windows XP updates, so lots of people are missing the patch.

Note:
WEP is no longer recommended. The FBI has demonstrated that WEP can be cracked in just a few minutes using software tools that are readily available over the Internet.

Need to change my security PW to WPA from WPA2 which xbox360 does not support


Went into my router settings and changed the security password for my network to WPA only. This allowed my Xbox 360 to see my network.
