    if your computer is connected to your router, open your web browser and go tohttp://192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (depending on your model) Now you need to provide the user name and password. Default values are: user name: admin password: admin (or try blank, meaning leave password blank) Then in the interface, navigate through the menus and look for "security" or any related commands. You must be able to supply a WPA or WPA2 or WEP encryption key (serve as password to connect) from the web interface system of your router.

What is a wireless network connection network key also called a wep or wpa key. Or where can i find it?


Both are security protocol which enable the owner of an wireless network to limit the acces to that network and to protect the data that runs through that network.
WEP stands for WIRED EQUIVALENT PRIVACY and it' a security algorithm designed for wireless networks with the intention to provide a level of confidentiality close to the wired networks
WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access and it's a security protocol designed to secure wireless networks
If your wireless device discovered a network that require such keys,that means that the owner of
that network secured his network,only people having acces are those who know the key.
If you have a Wi-Fi router and you forgot the key ,you have to acces the configuration page of the router ,go to wireless security page and reconfigure it, by changing the key.(get the manual of the router and follow the steps)

What does it mean by network security key


The name 'network security key' is itself self-explanatory. Every network has a security key and you will need this key to be a part of that network. Just as is the case of any other term that comes from the field of network engineering, there are a lot more details attached to this term, too. So, let us try to understand all the aspects related to network security key

An explanation as to why we need a wireless network security key is not even required. Still, if any one is skeptical about adding any complexity to their available wireless network, just think about it. Your wireless network range can be detected by any other computer with a wireless setup and that comes within the range of the network. So, without you knowing, it's very easy for any user to get connected to your wireless network and gain access to all the data that you intend to share only with those computers with which you have setup your wireless network. So, what is a wireless network security key and how is it useful in such situations?

Well, a network security key or passphrase is something like a password, which any user who wants to connect to your computer will require. But, I think that before we go into the details of figuring out, how to get network security key for wireless computer, we should take a look at the different methods of securing your wireless network

What is the WEP key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is an older network security method that's still available to support older devices, but it's no longer recommended. 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. However, WEP security is relatively easy to crack. f4008eb.jpg

I need to add a password to my wireless network


Do you want to secure the wireless network ?
For that you will need to access the router set up.
You said that you want to add a password. I don't understand that. Is your wireless network already secured ? Or you want to make it secured ?
If it is already secured then it must have the password to connect to the wireless network. You can use only 1 password for the network. You can not use 2 password for the wireless network.
If your network is not secured yet then you will need to make it secured and enable password protection on it.

I have a wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster and I need help obtaining the security code or better yet, help in setting the security to "on" because my internet company said that someone...


you will need to log in to your router.
in the wifi section select the wpa/psk security and use the serial number of the router as the security key.
you will then need to use this same number to access the router using wifi
