Easiest way since I don't know the what make and model of wireless router you have is on the back of the router is a small pinhole reset, insert toothpick in to re-set, the default for wireless routers are open un-secured access.

Hi,

Two way to remove security encryption:
1. disable in your wireless setup (Either the WEP or WPA);
2. full reset the router. Press the small recessed button for more than 10 seconds. (However this will also remove and and all settings of the router including the WAN)

For simplicity, perhaps option ! would be the safest for your requirement.

If for some reason the above does not work for you, pls post back brand and model of your router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Power off the router. Press on the reset button while powering it on. Hold for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work, try pressing on the reset (for at least 10 seconds) with the router powered off and then when on. If that still doesn't work, connect your laptop to the router using a LAN cable and access the router setup using a browser. Reset to default using firmware web based interface,

    Cheers.

How can i find out my encription code for my asus eeepc


The encryption code is in your router's wireless setup.
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 configured in the Wireless settings in the 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 or WPA or WPA2 key 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

How to find encription code for 46E019 ROUTER


"encription code"? Security Key? Password? If you have the wireless secured, only you have the password. You can reset it to default settings and reconfigure the SSID and Security Key. If you supply the Make, Model of wireless device, it would be helpful.

I cannot connect to the WIFI at work, but I can connect to my WIFI network at home, and other public networks. The wireless network at work is pushed by a D-Link 8200AP with a WAP security, just like it is...


Your laptop cannot connect to your work's wireless network because the security settings (ir WAP) in the D-Link is different to the security setting in your Netgear.
The wireless card in your laptop will need the settings changed to suit the D-Link's wireless settings ie the SSID and WAP.
You will need to change the wireless card settings in your laptop back to the Netgear's wireless settings to connect to your wireless network at home.
Some wireless cards allow you to set up different profiles for different wireless networks which allow you to switch wireless networks easily by just selecting the profile for the network you want to connect to.

What does it mean entering the encription key of the access point being connected?


If your player is connected to the internet then you need to check your wireless router. You could first try power cycling the router by unplugging the power cord from the back of your wireless router for 15-30sec or get a paper clip and hit the small reset pin hole on the back of the router. If your still getting this message then you need to find out what wifi security phrase or code is on your wifi router either you have WEP or WPA-PSK security code for your home network. The access point is your wireless router or Modem. If you do not remember or have the passkey then you need to contact your internet router/modem manufacture.

How do I get my encription code for my DIR-615, please ? Reset does not work. CD does not work. I spent 58 minutes with Tech help - waste of time and money


If you did the "reset" correctly, the router should have been reset to its "factory" settings.

If so, then connect an Ethernet cable between your computer's network-port and one of the LAN ports on the router.

Access the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to configure the wireless networking, including choosing an SSID, and choosing an encryption-level, and choosing a password for your wireless network.

Cant connect PC after encription


You may have a setting on the router that limits the number of authenticated wireless connections at one time. You will have to enter the web utility and check the wireless settings, particularily the security settings.

Setting


All you have to do it open up your web browser. Go to your router's setup page (usually 192.168.1.1) Go to either admin., wireless security, or security.
Select your security mode (pick WPA personal as it is most compatible with your network.)
Select TKIP for your encription and set your passphrase(password)
