There is no default WPA key. WPA key is an encryption key valid for your wireless network only.

The encryption key is usually defined by whever did set up or is managing your network.

If you have access to the router you can see or modify the existing WPA key using an Ethernet cable and your browser.

Connect a computer to the Netgear router using a cable like this:

what is the wpa key for wnr2000 - 8f79281.jpg

Once you are connected and the local network (LAN ) led on the router is steady (this will take less than one minute), open Internet Explorer.

On Internet Explorer top bar type the router IP. Default one for this router will be 192.168.1.1.

Before opening the router control panel, you will be asked for router ID and password.
Default are the following:

Default admin username, admin.
Default admin password, password.

If default password does not work, then you will have to reset the router and setup router from scrap. At that point better calling service provider to assist with your broadband setup and personal details.

If default ID and password are working, as supposed to if you did your router setup and did not change them, you will access the router control panel.

On the control panel choose Wireless, then security, and find the WPA key in there, or find the options to setup WPA or WEP encryption.

Regards.

Connecting hp712c to hp g7 notebook via netgear wnr 2000?


To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I need help getting the wireless key from the router


If you need wireless password(security key like WEP or WPA) or you would like to setup wireless security for your Netgear router, access the router setup page by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1(sometimes it's 192.168.0.1) in the address field of your browser and then press Enter.
Enter
admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).

11_28_2011_6_36_47_am.png

After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the Wireless Key(For WEP you need Key 1,2,3 or 4 whichever is selected... For WPA you need passphrase) or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.

I'm trying to log on with my visio tv & I need a wpa key#


To locate the security key please follow the below steps on a computer connected to the router:

1. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.
2. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.
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 passphrase (or network key).
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 deviceto the router's wireless network.
In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase 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.

Please revert for any further clarification.

Describe your NetGear Problem Cannot get Apple on line. Need to get WPA key? Comcaast states must go through you to get WEP key or password


I understand that you need to check the security key so as to connect the computer with the router's wireless network.


In order to get this key we need to login to the router's page using any computer which is physically connected to router. Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:


1. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.

2. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.

3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.

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 passphrase (or network key).

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 router's wireless network.

I have bought this equipment, and i wish to make a secure connection and add other laptops and computers. but everytime i do so, i loose the connection, i wish to use the wi-fi protected set up


If you want to use secure wireless connection just use WEP or WPA security encription for wireless. Protected set up does not do this. This is for in house laptop connections. In the wireless tap of your netgear choose manual set up or wireless security option and then choose WEP or WPA option. You will have to make a key and put this key in to every wireless device in house. Hope this helps.

This is a link to manual for your router.

Hi I purchased a GETNET GR 124W Wireless 54M router last year and have been using it sucessfully for 3 network points in my home. However, I have never used the wireless function. Now I have purchased...


The wireless Network has a key on it to prevent unauthorized people from stealing your connection. You'll have to access the router and look for the WEP or WPA security key and use that in your wireless devices.

How do I find out my security key?


You will enter one of your choosing, or the interface will give you one. It's in the configuration of the router when you log into it.

Look for security, or something that says WPA and you're in the right area.

Good luck!
