You can reset the router using a pin or paper clip (something small enough to fit in the little hole. You can find it on the back of the unit...or maybe on the front. Just put the pin in it and hold it down for about 7 seconds. It will reset the settings and you can get back into it and set a new security key.

Try to get onto the router first, usually 192.168.1.1, or 192.168.1.0 default user name is admin, and the password is either "admin" or "password"
from there go the the wireless settings and you will see your key code there and you can change it there also.

If you can still log into the router just go to the wireless section, the wireless security, and it will show you the keys. There will be a list of keys but the one you need is the top one, or the one with a checkbox next to it.

Cant find security key


If it's your router, you made the key. If it's not your router, stealing internet is a federal crime.
If you cannot remember the key then reset router to factory defaults.

I'm trying to connect my Wii to the internet but I can't remember my security code


I assume you mean the WEP/WPA key. Just go into your router and reset or look up the key.
To get into the router control panel enter 192.168.1.1 then navigate to the Wireless Tab and then the Security Section. Your key will be there. You should have the option to view the key in text or reset the key. Remember to write it down some place if you reset it.
Good luck,
Cullen

I DON'T KNOW OR REMEMBER MY PASSWORD (SECURITY KEY) COULD YOU HELP ME?


Hi andy,

Welcome to Fixya.

If you need you Security Key (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 the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.0.1, the Default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings and under Security Mode you'll find the Network Key or Passphrase. You can alsoThen Personalize you Network Key or Passphrase so that you can easily remember it.

Don't Forget to say Thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

I can't remember the security password i created


the password for the wireless internet or the password to access the router? If you can't access the router. There is a pinhole to reset it to factory specs. If you can still access the router but don't remember the security key. then just log into the router and make a new key.
Thank you,
Lee
