Make sure that you are saving your changes. After you select your password and enter the info in the appropriate window, be sure to look for the save, or accept button to update the information into your router..

How do i connect to internet with ps3, wireless, what is a wpa key?


WPA stands for Wi-Fi protected access. It is a standard security protocol implemented by Wi-Fi alliance to secure wireless computer networks. WPA standard is advancement over WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) standard that had several security issues. WPA implements most of the IEEE 802.11i standard and provides greater security than WEP.

While connecting to your home network, you are often asked to insert a WPA key. This WPA key is either located in the modem or in the router you are using. In order to find your computer's WPA key, follow the steps given below:


You can correct this problem by entering the WPA Key into your PSP's Network Settings. But before you do that you need to know what your WPA Key is...


Step 1: First of all, you need to launch an internet browser. Press "Windows + R" keys to open the "Run" prompt and type "iexplore" without quotes to open Internet Explorer. You can also type "firefox" to open Mozilla Firefox. On the address bar at the top, type http://192.168.1.1 (Belkin routers use 192.168.2.1 as the default IP) and press "Enter" key.
This address belongs to your wireless modem or wireless router to which you are connected.


Step 2: A window asking for username and password will appear. In the username field, type "admin" without quotes and in the password field, either type "password" without quotes or leave the password field blank. Press "Enter" key to continue.
If password is correct, you will be redirected to the modem/router's "Settings" page, otherwise, you will have to reset the modem/router. Check beneath the modem/router or check the manual for correct password.


To reset a Linksys modem/router or Belkin one, locate a small hole at the back of the modem/router and insert a pin to press the switch inside it. Keep the switch pressed for about 20-30 seconds after which the modem/router will restore the settings to "factory defaults" and reboot itself.


Repeat the step 2, in order to gain access to "Settings" page.


Step 3: On the modem/router's "Settings" page, find "Wireless" option. Click the "Wireless" link to populate the wireless settings. Now, locate and click the "Security" or "Advanced Security" option.


On the security page, you will find "Network Authentication". Different options available under the Network Authentication menu are open, shared, WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, etc. Select either WPA or WPA2, to find your computer's WPA key and insert this key when asked for.


If in step 2, you had reset the modem/router, you will not find any WPA or WPA2 key, and you will have to manually assign one. Select any of the WPA-PSK or any other authentication and assign a key to it. A key can be 8-63 long.


For minimal security, you can choose 8 characters key, like "iN/5R92". For maximum security, choose 63 characters key like, "sJ0esmoU2cBDm+oMp$nrXj5XPVRTvVA5fpwGSGIRVz4RdQ7V3yl$P1NrT9Be".
After you have assigned a key, save/apply the changes and reboot the modem/router.


Note: The procedure shown above is common to most of the modems/routers. If this doesn't apply to you, check your modem/router's manual to find the wireless security option.

I want to install my wii to my internet. I have a Belkin Router. I need a Security Key or password to get my wii onto my internet. What is the Security Key or password?


the security key is your wep key you can get this buy going on the router itself. Follow this trouble shooting guide and if you need help or it still doesnt work follow up with a comment and i will assist you further. Please try the following troubleshooting: Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance) Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters). If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types: WPA - PSK (TKIP) WPA - PSK (AES) WPA2 - PSK (AES)
If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering: From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model). If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings: On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run." Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.

Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

My router is not secured and when i tried to make it secured with password it didnt work, i tried with install CD and than i totally lost internet and gave me so many problems that i finally gave up after...


it is pretty simple, once you've done it a few times
log in to the router: 192.168.1.1 in the address line of internet explorer, the default username is left blank, and the default password is admin (if you changed the password, us it) once in the menu, click on Wireless The default SSID (Router name for your network) is LINKSYS, you can change it to what you want (BOB's router etc) , then security, and you'll have the option to enable security, and select the type, Use WPA and for the key I suggest an old phone number that you know by memory (All 10 digits including area code), then save the settings. Next time you try to connect to the network, it will prompt for the key, type in the one you entered, and yo are on-line, wireless and secure

Trying to secure my tp link router


You need to access your router setup and admin pages.

At START, RUN, type in CMD. This will open DOS dialog box. at the >prompt, type ipconfig. Look at the data returned, Your are looking for the Default Gateway. It will be like 192.168.1.1 or some other sequence.

in your browser's address bar, enter this number. This opens the router set up/admin page. default login should be user:admin, password:admin.

I don't have the model number of your TP Link router. Find yours at TP Link. You need to change your Newwork name (SSID), your user name and your password. Change also your wireless security to WEP.
All of this should be in your manual or on line.

The picture below shows the WEP change.

Good Luck

Trying to get on internet but its asking for a wep key or a wpa key I just completed hook up to netgear router have desk top and a wirerles lap top laptop is asking for info


The WEP and WPA key is configured in the router's wireless settings.
WPA is a stronger encryption than the older WEP encryption, I suggest you use WPA or better still WPA2.
To secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and the wireless card in the computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I need to set a passowrd for my wireless router.


The default username and password is "user". For the security settings, you need to setup WEP/WPA-PSK etc. Steps are outlined in the manual.

Setup security


To set up a network key (password to access the network), follow these steps:

Open your browser and go to 192.168.0.1
Depending on your router's model number, the username/password combination will be different. Try admin/(blank), admin/admin, or user/(blank), where (blank) is not putting in a password at all.

If you look through the tabs and option pages, you will see a section for WEP or Network Key. A 64-bit WEP key is enough, you do not need a 128-WEP or a WPA key.

Make sure you apply the settings before closing the page.
