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.

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.

I have a friend visiting me from England that needs to use her laptop and can not access wireless because I do not know my user and password for my d link since I have had it for years and have never had...


if you do not know the security (WEP/WPA) key, one of your option is to change the security key if you can still access your router configuration page. If not, your other option is to reset the router to factory settings. Usually, it will have a pin hole that you can push to reset the settings, then you can configure the router settings including the security key again.

What is wpa number


If this is for you trying to access wireless internet the WPA key is the wireless security key needed to use the wireless router. Usually you can find the wireless key on a sticker on the router or it is supplied on a card when you first receive the router.

Hope this helps

We cannot connect wirelassly


...I'm not sure on what your actual question is here but make sure you have a wireless network to connect to (you can buy wireless router and an internet service via any internet service provider- I use BT)

If that's not your problem (which i don't know what is) - then make sure your typing security WPA key in properly. (WPA key should be located on the back of your router/hub if that wireless hub got delivered by your current internet service provider). If your still having trouble contact your current home network manager (dad/mum/guardian/employer/lanlord) who has software to control the WPA & what it is).

Your xbox should have a network adapter already installed (device inside that allows connection wirelessly to a networks wireless router/hub). So that shoulden't be the problem (unless your xbox is broken)

Were would i find the wep key or the wpa for the WUSB54GSC Wireless -G USB Network Adapter/


The Wep Key is located in the wireless router settings and will not be found on the network adapter. The network adapter needs the wep or wpa key to connect to the wireless router. You will need to use a computer hooked up directly to the router and enter the router settings menu to find or change the wep or wpa key. Most routers use 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to enter the router menu. When you input the IP address above a screen should come up asking for a username and password. Enter those and that will allow you to get into the router menu. If you do not know the username and password you can reset the router with the reset button and that will restore the default password which is usually no username and password is admin.

Wpa key on modem


you need to log in to the modem itself. Type the following in your internet explorer bar:

linksys: 192.168.1.1

dlink: 192.168.0.1

any other models, you need to look at the instruction manual to find the correct address. Once in the setup menu, look for wireless settings.

Trying to connect my lapton to router, it asks for a wepkey or a wpa key.


If it's a router that you have physical access to, you can use a pen to reset the router to default ( unsecured ), and address the router and reset a password.
