Russ,

As part of the security setup of your router for wireless connections, you are being asked to provide the encryption key (passphrase) to be allowed to conenct to the router. This is done so nobody can use your router without that key.

The users manual that came with the router should show you how to obtain that key from your router. Basically, you have to connect directly to the router via a cable, log into the router, select the wireless configuration screen (tab) and you should find it there.

Good luck

Check this manual and look at the installation part. It will tell you how to reach to your Wireless Security page. That is where you would find your key or pass phrase.

I need a pass phrase or network key to be able to log on to my wireless internet connection for my laptop.


Hi,
Good day. If your looking for your looking for the pass phrase or network key for your router. You can try to do the following.
1. Check for a WEP key on the router itself. Usually it is on a sticker located under the router or at the back of it. 2. You can go to the router page using your internet explorer or mozilla > just type in 192.168.1.1 on your browser > it will ask for a username and password > username: leave it blank password: admin > then go to wireless setting > then it will show you your WEP or WPA or Wireless key > Dont be confuse the wep or wpa or pass phrase are all the same > then just type it on the space where its asking you to type in a pass phrase and that should work
3. If still you can locate it you can contact your internet service providers technical support department and they will be able to walk you through it

Hope this information will be helpful in resolving your concern. Have a great day and thanks for using fixya.

I can't figure out my security settings. I currently have it set to: Authentication: Open Encryption: WEP-128 and Key input to phass phrase: for which I selected a common password that I use My...


WEP usually gives you a passkey, you do not choose this.
If you choose WPA2, then you can choose a password.
WPA2 is far more secure, and if you have the option to choose it, then do so.
Log on to your router and check if it is available

What if i want to secure it. do i need the cd?


Im not sure what you are saying is your problem.

To secure your wireless network you first need to log into your routers configuration settings to do that in your address bar of your browser type http://192.168.0.2 enable either WEP or WPA security and tell it what security key or pass phrase to use.

Then on your computer when you try to connect to your wireless routers signal it will ask you to put in the security key or pass phrase you selected and thats that. You are secure.

What is wpa pass phrase while setting wireless printer


WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.

How do i find my security key for motorola wireless


The wireless security key is the encryption key that is set in the wireless router's configuration.
You need to connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open the Internet browser and enter the wireless router's configuration URL, then the default login and the password, provided the login and password has not been changed. The configuration URL, the login and password is in the Motorola router's documentation.
If you have lost the documentation then go to the Motorola's WEB site to download the WR850g wireless router documentation.

Need security code for new laptop


Hi there,

I think we were disconnected with the chat session. Well, here is what you do, after you have reset the router, try connecting the laptop again to the network. It should not ask for a password this time. Please let me know. If this solved the problem, please do not forget to click the End Session button to properly close the chat and to accept the solution I provided. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do I put security on my Belkin 54g router


You set your security by enabling WEP.

When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.

I have internet with time warner so have linksys router wireless'but when a try to connect to other computer don,t work


First, check to make sure that you can get Internet through a wired connection, if you can't then wireless won't work either. Second, if you can, then try connecting to the wireless without using WEP or any security. You can turn this off by going to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser while wired to the router from your PC and go under wireless security. If you can connect from an unsecured access point then set up a WEP key with a pass-phrase and when you are asked for the pass-phrase from the PC use the the hex key 1 that is generated by the router instead of the pass-phrase. You should have no problem connecting. Thye wizard that comes on the configuration CD will not set up your wireless correctly, you really have to configure the system using the IP.
