I need a pass phrase or network key to be able to log on to my wireless internet connection for my laptop.


Hi,
Good day. If your looking for your looking for the pass phrase or network key for your router. You can try to do the following.
1. Check for a WEP key on the router itself. Usually it is on a sticker located under the router or at the back of it. 2. You can go to the router page using your internet explorer or mozilla > just type in 192.168.1.1 on your browser > it will ask for a username and password > username: leave it blank password: admin > then go to wireless setting > then it will show you your WEP or WPA or Wireless key > Dont be confuse the wep or wpa or pass phrase are all the same > then just type it on the space where its asking you to type in a pass phrase and that should work
3. If still you can locate it you can contact your internet service providers technical support department and they will be able to walk you through it

Hope this information will be helpful in resolving your concern. Have a great day and thanks for using fixya.

How i find wpa or wep key code for my ps3 if i dont have internet in home


If you do not have a wireless router nor an Internet connection, then you cannot connect to the Internet.
What you are seeing is a wireless router next door and it has WEP encryption. I don't think your neighbour will give you his WEP key for you to use his Internet for free.

This isn't too hard if you take it one step at a time. .
  1. First, get your user guide or download it from here.
  2. Log on to your router per the instructions on page 14 with "Contacting your Router"
  3. Skip to page 16 and perform step 1
  4. Click on SECURITY and skip to page 19.
  5. To keep this easy, choose WEP, Key 1, and generate the key.
  6. WRITE DOWN KEY #1 as you will need this when you connect your PC. Click APPLY.
. Your router is now secure. When you try to connect your wireless PC it shoud now bring up the security screen. Change the security scheme to WEP, key #1 and type in the code from step 6. . Good luck!

How do i recover a wep key for a cisco router model wrt310n and thanks


WEP keys are created by the user in the setup or in the security setting inside the router.
You will want to enter into the router via the ip 192.168.1.1 for this model
and check the "key renewal" instruction for the WPA pass-phrase.
this is where you do changes for router security. This pass-phrase is usually 63 characters.
Here are some additional instructions:
1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP a dresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WPA KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Find pass key for our lap top for the family network.


Log into your router's web interface, if possible through a computer connected to the router by cable, by starting an internet browser and navigatng to its maintenance IP address, usually set by many manufacturers to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. An authentication request will come up. As you haven't speciffied your router model, there are routers whose both user name and password fields are set to 'admin'. Other routers use 'admin' as user name only, requiring the password field to be left empty. Once you get into the router's web interface, go to the wireless settings, and change the wireless passphrase to a new one of your choice. Make sure to change the other devices, which use to connect to the router, to the same new passphrase.
If you need further details, please, provide your router model and manufacturer.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.

I have a wireless router for xbox 360. I dont have no internet in my house. when i try to connect the to the internet and join xbox live it keeps saying i need a a pass phrase of wep or sum other code. can...


I dont have no internet in my house (sic) without internet.. how can you connect???... anyway a WEP key is only available from when the router was first setup a "Code" is generated and unless know cannot be used. If that happens all one can do, log into the router with a browser, and then you reset the router, & set it all up again, when at security, make sure that the generated "Key" is stored safely, I usually copy/paste to a notepad document, for later use. Thats the only way.

Need a securty code


Regarding your concern, please note that in order to get the network key/password on the NETGEAR router (MODEL_NUMBER), we need to login to the router's web interface using any computer which is physically connected to the router.

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router using an Ethernet cable in order to find the network/security key:

1. Open the browser (like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1', 'http://www.routerlogin.net' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. When prompted for Username and Password please enter Username as 'admin' and Password as 'password' (please note that both Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings' under Setup from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the pass phrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the NETGEAR router's wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the pass phrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

Blocking free loaders. I want to block my neighbors from using thier wifi from getting free internet off of mines. How do I set that up?


well, there many solutions to do this, but the most simple, effective ones are:

1. make or change your network (WEP) key so that whenever you connect to your own network, you must enter the key for it to successfully connect.

The way to do this is to go to your router's ip address (if you don't know it, google your router's model and search "[your router's model] ip address"])

Then, after you have logged in to your router's ip address (default username is admin and pass is blank), look around the settings and look for changing your network key. You can make up the key there.

2. In that same router page, there should be a section for firewall. THere, type in your neighbour's computer's ip address to block their computers.

Number 1 is the most simplest and effective way. If you still have problems, tell me your router's model/name/company...it would make it MUCH EASIER for me :)
