Try resetting the router by pushing in the reset button while the power is on. It is usually located on the back of the router.

Some routers reset button is located in one of the holes on the back.

What make of router are you using?

I dont know how to get the password to my wifi, where do i find it?


The wireless SSID and security key is normally written on a label on the wireless router device provided this has not been changed when the device was installed. . .If the security key or SSID (network identifier) have been changed, then you would need to access the wireless router administration web page in order to find out what the new settings are. . . You would then also need to know what the user name and password for the router is - which may also be printed on the label on the router.

Dont know wpa number


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to obtain the WPA or Network Key on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I cannot connect my laptop to my thomson router because i dont know my security key password!! can you help me please??


When you view the available wireless networks and then click on your wireless network connection, it will asks for a network/security key if this wireless connection is an encryption protected wireless network. This key is the wireless encryption key that is configured in the wireless settings of your router. Please click on this link and follow my instruction to connect into your wireless network :-

I want to connect my wii to the internet but i dont know the WEP key


You should not be using WEP, it is not secure. If you can, you should use WPA2.
To get your password/key, log on to your router / wireless/ security and set/find your password/key

How can i change my security key if i dont have the right one to get wireless from my 2wire 2701


Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.
Some times on the 2 wire router , the network key written on the back side of the router. It might be a 10 digit number. Try to search for the number on the back side of the router.
If you do not see any then open the router set up and get the network key.

Fortgot network password


How do I find out my Wireless key (WEP or WPA) ?

There are numerous ways to find out these values so I will cover a few.

Easy Solution (you should be so lucky)
Sometimes the value for the Wireless Key is written on the underneath of the router, look for SSID (this is the network name) and WEP or WPA key (called the encryption key)

Alternative Method
In order to find out your Wireless Network Key you must first use a cable to connect to your router.

Once connected check that you are connected to the internet by opening Internet Explorer , Safari or Netscape (in fact any internet browser)

The address or the router is usually one of the following values:-

http://192.168.0.1
http://192.168.1.1
http://10.10.0.2
http://192.168.2.1
http://192.168.2.254

Try clicking on each and see if you get a logon box popping up

If you do, that is the correct address for your Wireless router, note it down.

If the box has the username and password completed, then click OK

If there is no value for username try "admin" and for the password try one of the following "password", "admin",

Also try nothing for the username and "admin" for the password

Sometimes the value for these are written on the underneath of the router

Once the router page is displayed, look for an item called Wireless Settings.
Next see if a further option for Wireless Security exists.
The names of these items vary from Router to Router

Once security is displayed the SSID (Network Names) and the WPA or WEP Key can be found.

Once you have noted these values, unplug the cable and click on the following link

If there is no security I would set it to WPA or WEP then the original computer connecting will need this value if it is connecting wirelessly

What is a WPA for an xbox 360 wireless networking adaptor


To connect your console to a wireless network Turn on your console and any wireless networking devices (such as a router or an access point).Attach the wireless networking adapter to the back of your console.Go to the System area of the Xbox Dashboard to enter your network settings.If all settings are correct, exit the System area. Your console should now be connected to your wireless network. Your WPA is your wireless security for your network. When you secured your network it asked you for your WPA key. Thats what you need to use. I hope you wrote it down somewhere. If not you'll have to log into your router and just change it to something new. If you do that make sure to right it down some where safe.
