Change your wep key quickly. You NEVER post the key for anyone to read here. Are you connecting your laptop wirelesly? I'd use MAC address filtering if you do. That way only your laptop or any device you enter the mac address in the list will be able to connect to your router.

SOURCE: can't find wep key or router username or password

Since you want to access the router setup page and get the wireelss security for your laptop you can try this:
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.

If the default password didn't work you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds so it will be back to its default settings with default password which is admin.

But if you successfully log in to the router page just go to the Wireless tab and there you can find all the wireless settings of your router including the wireless security key...

SOURCE: I need the network key code in order to access my wireless router

http://192.168.1.1 and press Enter. A logon window appears
like the one shown on the next page.
The Logon screen:
User name: leave blank.
Password: enter the default password admin in all lowercase
letters. (Later on, we recommend changing the default to your
own password for added security using the Password tab of the
following web-based utility.)
Click OK. The Primary Setup screen appears as shown in the
next step.
Go to the security tab. You should see your key there.


Here is the user guide.

SOURCE: Forgot my security password (network key)I need to

Logon to your router from your computer using your browser and going to http://192.168.1.2/. If it wants a username, the default username is blank and the default password is either blank or "password".


The Belkin management tool will come up. From there, go into your security and look to see if your passphrase is visible. If it is, you're good to go. If not, you can change it on that page save it and close out.
Don't forget to change the passphrase on any wireless devices you are using connected to the Belkin wireless router.

SOURCE: Can't get the Linksys Router's list of Network Security Settings

The router has a built-in web-server.
So, just connect your web-browser to that web-server,
select the correct page, and click PRINT.

Can i connect new pc to old connection


You simply need to disconnect old computer from the network and connect the new one.
Are you trying to connect wired computer or wireless?

If you are trying to connect a wired computer then you don't need to do anything.
Just take out the Ethernet cable from the old computer and connect it to the new computer.

If you are connecting a wireless computer to the network then make sure that you have all the settings of your wireless router.
If your wireless network is secured then you should know the correct network key.
What is the operating system on your computer?

I will suggest you a website " The Router Setup " which may help you connect your new computer to the old wireless network.

How to connect laptop (using internal wireless adapter) to a wireless network)


Make sure you have the correct Password exactly like it should be (case sensitive). If it is not correct, it will continue in the loop of trying to validate identity.

Also you can click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Connection and select Properties.

When the properties window opens click View Available Wireless Networks. Highlight your network by clicking on it then select Properties.

The Association tab will allow you to change the Network Authentication to WPA2-PSK if it is not set to that and if the adapter will accommodate it. And you can put in the Network Key or Password.

I currently have 2 sony computers connected to my Linksys WRT310N Router. I just bought a new Dell Laptop for my home business and I can't get it connected.


I'm assuming your new computer uses Win 7, so try opening Control Panel, Network and Sharing Center - then elect to set up a new wireless network. You should 'see' your wifi network - if not, then come back with that info & we'll take it from there...

I cannot find my WEP key on Router N with Belkin.


You changed the network key.
Make sure that you will connect your computer to the router with the cable to change the wireless settings of the router.
Do not change the wireless settings of the router using the wireless computer.
open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings.
Change the name of the wireless network also.
create a new network and try to connect to the new wireless network.]
I think you did not change the name of the network and your computer might be trying to connect to the same old network name with the old settings.

Lost internet service on laptop


First, are you wired or wirelessly connected to the router? Is there any computer that is connected to the router aside from the problem one?

If you are wired connected to the router, try connecting the Ethernet cable into different LAN port of the router.

If you are wirelessly connected to the router, try disabling and re-enabling the WiFi of your laptop and try connecting again.

If there's another computer that's connected to the router and it can get online, then the problem is in your computer. Checked the Network properties of the problem computer and make sure that you are getting a valid IP address.

If you have two computers and both of them are not getting online, try connecting first one of the computers directly to the modem. If same problem occur, then contact your ISP.

If you can get online while directly connected to the modem, then turn the Netgear router OFF for about a minute and turn it back on and try again.

Hope this helps and have a good day!

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
Call for detail on this possibility
