The network key is set on the access point or router. You can check what it is (or set it) with a wired connection to the access point or router.

Cant connect to netgear ptv2000


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I need my wep key


The WEP encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
I recommend you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, it is much stronger than WEP.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Wep key


The WEP encryption key is configured in the wireless settings of the Netgear wireless router. For a stronger and later encryption method I suggest you use WPA2 or WPA, provided the wireless card in the computer/laptop supports WPA2 or WPA.

I need the netkey or webkey for my wgr614v8 netgear router. I can't connect to the internet from my laptop. It keeps asking for my netkey.


You need to connect to the web interface of the router from a PC, using a standard ethernet cable.

You then set the Wireless encryption (WEP key or WPA passphrase) in the Netgear router. Goto www.netgear.com to find the manual for your router if you don't have one.

You then have to set the same WEP key or WPA value in the laptop computer.

Problem connecting wirelessly using netgear router MR814v2


Hi, you should consider changing your security to WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK encryption instead of WEP as WEP can be cracked in a matter of minutes, even 128bit keys can be cracked easily. Plus there's no confusion over the four WEP keys generated.

With WPA you choose the key so it can be a word instead of random key, making it easier to remember. Just make sure its not a simple word that can be guessed, and use random numbers or characters so something like 64ranDomWordz92. Its case sensitive too so chucking in capitals makes it even harder to guess. Don't forget to write it down in case you forget it, make sure you write it correctly.

Now you know which key your using, go to manage wireless networks on your laptop and delete any profile you have for your network. Now when you try to connect, it will ask for your WPA / WPA2 passkey, just type it in and hit enter, you should now be connected.

Let me know if you need help with any of the above.
