Have forgotten NetKey password to add laptop to wireless network

Have a Linksys Wireless G router. Functions fine, have one laptop already on the network. I have a new laptop to ADD to the network, I have forgotten my netkey password to access my own network and add another computer. I can see the *** for the number of characters but for the life of me, cannot remember what I used.

Should I disconnect everything and reset the router and add both laptops as if new?

I have forgotten the password to my wireless router network (linksys wireless-G broadband router, 2.4 GHz). How can I access in order to add an additional computer to my wireless system?


Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer (desktop/laptop) to one of the "wired' ports on the router.

Connect to the built-in web-server "inside" the router.

Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to configure the wireless capabilities of the router; assign an SSID, and assign a password for the wireless network.

Reset router and add a new netkey . I have a Router G MIMO Plus. Model F5D9230-4. I move my office and I lost manuals and CD installation. We also change computer so we forgot the netkey. How can we reset...


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.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Forgot my netkey and want to add another computer


go to 192.168.2.1 >wireless security page. There you will see your old key. Erase it and type in your new key. It is going to ask you for the password if you have set one. If you have not set one, leave it blank and press submit.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know.
If this solves your issue, please be kind to rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Wrt310n adding wireless laptop


Hi,

If you are using windows xp :

Go to Start>control panel> Network and internet> network connections > right click on wireless network > select 'view available wireless networks' and select your home network and click connect. If it asks for a password i guess u have it or if u dont have then go to Internet Explorerand and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, it will ask for a username and a password, type admin as username and the same for password. it will take you to the lynksys page....then select wireless and click wireless security, it will show you the wireless password.......

If u have windows vista :

Click Start > go to 'connect to' > select the wireless network you want to connect to and the rest is the same as windows xp....


Hope this works out

Regards,
Anup
