Actually the Motorola SBG901 comes with security enabled on the wireless. You need to use WPA-PSK code found on the label on the bottom of the modem (or on the several extra labels in the box) to sign onto the wireless network. It is one of the only modem/routers I have ever seen who has the factory default as security enabled. It is frustrating - I just spent 2-3 hours figuring this out myself. The intstructions are less than clear that this is the code to use - but it is!

There is no such default network security key in routers if you have forgotten the key then you have to reset it .Look for any small hole in the back of the router.

Default network security key for apple airport


The Network Security Key is possibly the same pw as the network you are attaching to. This device can be configured in so many different ways.
If you can't figure it out then use the reset button on the back or use paper clip in reset hole.

To set up and configure your AirPort Extreme to use AirPort for wireless networking and Internet access, use the setup assistant in AirPort Utility.
The manual may be of some help... Available here

Good Luck

Find network security key or password


Your security key by default is usually a number on the wireless router. Your router manual should tell you what the default is or where to find it. If you set it and forgot it, try to reset the router to default.

Where do i find my wpa network security key


Hi,

Good day, In default you can see the wpa or network security key under the router. It should be on a sticker under the router labeled WPA or Network Key. Usually its beside the model number or serial number of your router as well. Hope this information help you. Have a great day.

I dont know what my network key is.


open new Internet Explorer and type in address Bar " http://192.168.1.1" and hit enter.
Leave user name field blank and type "admin" for the password.If you changed the router password, then log in using your password to login to the router.
Once you are in the router setup page, click on the Wireless Tab at the very top of the page. Once you are in the Wireless Tab, just right under the word Wireless you click the sub tab that Wireless Security. On this page you will see the Security Mode. If your security mode is set to WEP you will have four sets of keys available. To known which key to use look for the Default Transmit (Tx) Key, If your default transmit key is set to 1, then you will use the key in Network key 1 to connect to the wireless network. Now if your Security mode is set to WPA (Personal/Pres-Shared Key/PSK) what's inside the WPA-shared key or Pass phrase / Personal Key box is the network key for your wireless network.

Well i want to lock an with an pin code


Hi,

I guess what you men is you want to have a network key or security for your wireless network at home, you need to find out first what your Routers Default gateway is to be able to get in the router settings and enable a network key/security on your wireless network.

once you know what your Default Gateway is you can use Internet Explorer and enter the Default gateway on the Address bar ex. " 192.168.2.1 " it will look like an IP address but this is local for your Router only depends on what Router you have some Routers have Default Gateway of 192.168.1.1, again this will vary on what Router you have to get in the Routers settings for the Network key/Security.

Also you may need to call your ISP for that information, some Internet Service Providers have a different setting for their Networks some my require you to go to a certain website to get in your Routers settings.

How to secure my internet connection via smc router


If you plan to have a wireless network, you should set it up so that only people you choose can access it. Here are a few options for wireless network security.

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is a widely used network security method. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. The receiving computer needs the key to decode the information so that it's difficult for someone on another computer to get onto your network and access files without your permission.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
WPA was created to improve the security of WEP. Like WEP, WPA encrypts information, but it also checks to make sure that the network security key has not been modified. WPA also authenticates users to help ensure that only authorized people can access the network. If your networking hardware works with both WEP and WPA security, we recommend that you use WPA.

There are two types of WPA authentication: WPA and WPA2. WPA is designed to work with all wireless network adapters, but it might not work with older routers or access points. WPA2 is more secure than WPA, but it will not work with some older network adapters. WPA is designed to be used with an 802.1X authentication server, which distributes different keys to each user. This is referred to as WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise. It can also be used in a pre-shared key (PSK) mode, where every user is given the same passphrase. This is referred to as WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal.

802.1X authentication
802.1X authentication can help enhance security for 802.11 wireless networks and wired Ethernet networks. 802.1X uses an authentication server to validate users and provide network access. On wireless networks, 802.1X can work with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) keys. This type of authentication is typically used when connecting to a workplace network.

IF THIS ALL DOSEN'T WORK TRY THE FOLLOWING:

Wireless network security recommendations
If you have a wireless network, there are some additional security precautions that you should take.

Use a network security key
If you have a wireless network, you should set up a network security key, which turns on encryption. With encryption, people can't connect to your network without the security key. Also, any information that is sent across your network is encrypted so that only computers that have the key to decrypt the information can read it. This can help avert attempts to access your network and files without your permission. Common wireless network encryption methods are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA-2.

Change the default administrator name and password on your router or access point
If you have a router or access point, you probably used a default name and password to set up the equipment. Most manufacturers use the same default name and password for all of their equipment, which someone could use to access your router or access point without you knowing it. To avoid that risk, change the default administrator user name and password for your router. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the name and password.

Change the default SSID
Routers and access points use a wireless network name called a service set identifier (SSID). Most manufacturers use the same SSID for all of their routers and access points. We recommend that you change the default SSID to keep your wireless network from overlapping with other wireless networks that might be using the default SSID. It makes it easier for you to identify which wireless network is yours, if there is more than one nearby, because the SSID is typically shown in the list of available networks. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the default SSID.

Position your router or access point carefully
Wireless signals can transmit a few hundred feet, so the signal from your network could be broadcast outside of your home. You can help limit the area that your wireless signal reaches by positioning your router or access point close to the center of your home rather than near an outside wall or window.

After installing the router it was working fine. I went in to set up wireless security and now the internet light stays red.


Probably means that the security is turned on, if the wireless doesn't work even after you have entered the right password then press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to restore it to defaults - factory defaults just like it was first powered on.

D-link 802.11g wireless router security key


First, go to your router's ip address (192.168.0.1).
Then, login to your router (default username: admin default pass: blank or admin)
There, under tools or network security or similar to that sort, look for your network/WEP key. There, you should be able to find your network key to access the router's network, and even change it if needed.'
Hope this helps, please rate ^_^
