I have a hp pavilion 515n desktop computer and was wondering how to get the password for the wifi.


Hi Ettajean,

The wireless password can be located either on the wireless router itself (if it's being provided to you by your ISP), or you'll need to log into your router to view/change your wireless password.

If you've connected to the wireless router before and simply need to recall the password, you can view it inside of Windows:

If you can post the model number of your router, I can provide you with some additional direction.

Hope this helps!

My lenovo keeps on disconnecting for the internet


Troubleshooting your wireless connection via your Lenovo computer is not a task that requires familiarity with wireless networks or a vast level of computer troubleshooting knowledge.


You can repair Lenovo wireless problems ranging from browser setting errors to hardware connection issues and the only item you will need on hand is the owner's manual that was shipped with your router.


You will not require any additional devices or tools and should not have to resort to the expensive aid of a technician.


Launch the web browser you normally operate and check the "Work Offline" settings.

Click on the top toolbar where it says "File" and scroll down to where it says "Work Offline."


Ensure this selection is not checked, otherwise it will impede the operation of your wireless connection.

Click on this option to uncheck it.


Look over the connection made between your modem and wireless router.

Both devices have an Ethernet port on the rear.


It looks like an oversized telephone cord port. If these ports are not occupied by an Ethernet cable, connect one end of the cable to each device.

This connection cannot be loose.


Check your records for the password to your Lenovo wireless setup if you have a secured connection.

(A secured connection is recommended).

If you cannot find your password in your records, you will need to reset it.


Find the manual that shipped with your router and extract two important pieces of information. The first is the special web address the manufacturer provided for you to set up your router's settings; the second is the default password for your router.


Enter the web address from the manual into the web browser and click "Enter."

When prompted, input the default password from the wireless router.


Choose a new password for your wireless connection now that you have access to the settings.

Additionally, ensure the kind of wireless security you are using is "WPA." "WEP" is another available option, but it is an older encryption type and is technically inferior.


Click on the wireless network icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar in Windows on your Lenovo computer.

A list of wireless networks within range of your Lenovo computer will appear.


Click on the name of your wireless network and input your new password when prompted.

Look to the bottom right of your Windows desktop.


You should get a notification stating that you have successfully joined the network.


Hope this helps

Cannot find the password to my router


Not quite clear as to your problem. Are you trying to access the web-based configuration page for the router (for which you need an administrator password)? Or are you trying to make a wireless connection to the Internet via the router (for which you need the wireless security key)?

Those are two separate passwords, and you may be able to retrieve them both. The administrator password would be stored in the computer that was used to configure the router. The security key should be in the computer which configured the router, as well as any computer which made a wireless connection to the router.

If the passwords are stored, you should be able to retrieve them by installing some additional software.


For the computer that configured the router, download and install this program:

For a laptop that connected to the router, download and install this program:

--------------------------
If you can't retrieve those passwords from your computer, you may need to reset the router to its factory default, and then reinstall/reconfigure the unit. There is a "reset" button on the back of the router unit. For details on resetting the router, see the owner's manual (pp. 3 and 13):

PDF file of the Linksys/Cisco Wireless-G Broadband Router User Guide:

You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view/print this file - free from www.adobe.com
(2) get the WEP or WPA password, and enter it into the wireless LAN (WLAN) settings on your 2 additional computers.

Method 2:
Alternatively, access the WEP or WPA key on one of your working PC, by
(1) make sure the printer is working, powered up and online.

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.

Acer Wireless Password Connection


WEP is a standard encryption standard that has a 4 keys based on a passphrase. In addition to the correct name and the correct key, make sure youre picking the correct numerical key. (Example: Youre connecting to network MYHOME and the passphrase generated 4 keys and the router is using key number 3. You must use the third key.) Look up the settings on the router and retrieve the encryption key, and whether its the first, second, third, or fourth key. Youll need a computer thats directly connected to the router.
