Re: network key/password

Resetting a router following the instructions in the users guide will generally erase all configuration in the router -- meaning all configuration will need to be completely redone. ASSURE YOU HAVE THE APPROPRIATE INFORMATION TO COMPLETE THIS TASK BEFORE STARTING.

User guides can generally be obtained by accessong the manufacturers website -- assuming the category is correct -- this link should get you to the belkin support web site.

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type, the Default username is blankand the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

Need security code for new laptop

Hi there,

I think we were disconnected with the chat session. Well, here is what you do, after you have reset the router, try connecting the laptop again to the network. It should not ask for a password this time. Please let me know. If this solved the problem, please do not forget to click the End Session button to properly close the chat and to accept the solution I provided. Thank you for using FixYa.

Forgot network password

Hello...if you need to retrieve your network key, eg to connect a new laptop to the internet, this can be found within your router settings.

Here's a rough guide:

1. Type your router IP address, eg or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser address bar

2. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. The defaults for Linksys are username: (left blank) and password: admin : but if you have set a router password/username, please enter these.

3. In the router user interface, go to the section headed Wireless Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around a little. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be somewhere here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK, network key, WPA shared key, passphrase etc – but that’s the one you need.

For more details, you could pick up a manual from the Linksys site or view the help pages; otherwise, please come back to Fixya with your model number, and let us know how we can help. Good luck

I just got a new hard drive for my laptop and I can not connect to the internet (wireless) now. I do not know, nor recall having, any password. Please help. this tip any help to you? You only need part (1) 'Retrieving a lost Network Key' - this is the key/password Windows asks for when you try to connect wirelessly. (Skip part 2..).

You can pick up a manual from the Buffalo site if you need one. I think the router IP address may be and default password is blank (ie no password), but you would need to check your manual to be sure.

Please come back to Fixya if this does not help.

Need a network key

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 in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to
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.
When you're already on the setup page of the router youc an go to Wireless tab and click on Wireless security and there you can find the security key that you need....

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...
