Print out your settings from the linkys. The security key should be there. Alternatively, the printer should have come with software that should pick up your network and automatically do this for you. Was the broadcast turned off on your router? If it was turn it back on. I do hope that in the 2 months between you posted this and I responded that you have resolved this issue. Funny how we can map the genome, but have a hard time mapping a network. That is technology for you.

I dont have a disk to install my wep key to stop people from stealing my internet


open a web browser window on the connected computer and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar and press enter. A window will pop up prompting you for a username and password to access the configuration page for your router. Enter admin for both the username and password.

If it not accept then type user name Admin leave the password box blank and then click ok.

If it still does not accept it that means you have changed your user name and password of linksy.
To get your linksys default settings you will have to reset your linksys router by inserting a paperclip into the small Tiny hole into the back of the Linksys router for 10 sec.

Now you try to access router by user name and password which is mentioned above.

now you will have Linksys router page and now click on Security seetings on top

choose WPA PSK security settings

Now it will as you the security key

Enter any security minimum of 8 Characters anything you like.

click save settings on the bottom.

now try to connect to your Wireless network

I want to password protect my router


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to make you connection secure the you need to set a Network Key on your router and need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security You can select either WEP, WPA or WPA2 to make it secure and under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Generate a personalize key for your network.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Log into your router to get into the setup. Then go to the Wireless Security section. The password/key that you picked is there..


Read and follow this, When in the setup page for Wireless, you should see your security (WEP) key:

Connecting a wireless printer


If it is a Linksys router:
Go to 192.168.1.1 in your browser address box.
you will be asked to type in a password in the login box that appears. The linksys router's default password is admin, leave the user name box blank
once the setup page appears, click on the wireless tab, then on the security tab. There you will see your encryption key.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Can not remember or find network security key


You may need to access the router's setup page to check the security key or the network key you have set up to the router. To do this:
  1. Launch IE and type 192.168.1.1 on the address field using a computer that is wired to the router. It is the default IP address of the router. It will then ask for a username and password. By default, there is no username and the password is admin.
  2. Once you're in the router's user Interface, click Wireless tab. There is a sub-tab under Wireless which is called Wireless Security. Click on it.
  3. There you will find the type of wireless security you have enabled in your router as well as the network key.
Hope this helps!
