How to find wpa key


The WPA Key is usually established in the router by the user, though there are routers which will generate a random one for you. You must know this key to connect with any wireless device. The key will NOT normally be displayed within the router...it is represented by a series of dots. This is for security issues. If you lost or forgot the WPA key, you will need to create a new one and relink all your wireless devices.

I have just bought anew laptop cant get onto internet it wants me to type in security key i dont know what this is can you help me please?


  • If your are trying to connect via wireless from your laptop to the Netgear router, most likely it's requiring you to input the wireless security key(usually it's WEP or WPA encryption).

  • Access the router's setup page by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the address field of your browser(IE or Chrome). On the login use the default username and password(admin, password).

  • After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the Wireless Key. If the wireless security is set to WEP, use the available Key code but If it's WPA, what you need is the passphrase.

Type the Key or Passphrase on your wireless laptop and it should connect to the router.

Trying to get my playstation 3 online but it asking for WPA KEY. I dont know what it is.


This key is the security phrase (or characters) that you have to write down in order to connect the playstation with the Wireless Network (Wi-Fi) at the place you are. Either you can ask for this WPA KEY the from the person that set up the Wi-Fi or you can use a pc already connected at this router in order to go to the router's settings page / Wi-Fi / security and read the WPA KEY by yourself.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

In need of network key(WEP/WPA key). What and where is this? Bought new laptop and need to connect to router. Thanks


If you don't know the key for the router reset it to factory spec and then put in a new key. Go to the manufacturer web site and download a manual if you do not know how to reset.

Problem connecting to Router with Mac Airport


The $ sign or a hash character before the network key only works with WEP 64 bits on Mac, if you enabled WPA(is it TKIP or AES?) make sure that your Mac computer supports that kind of authentication if not try to lower down the security level on the router by using WEP instead of WPA.

you need to access your router's setup page in order to get the wep key. follow the steps below

- open a web browser and type http://192.168.11.1 on the address bar. the default username is "root" and leave the password blank
- you will be prompted with your router's page, go to the wireless settings
- then go to wireless security, there you will find your wep key or the encryption that you needed to connect wirelessly

hope this'll help and just ask me if you have other concern
