Open IE, go to your router using 192.168.1.1 and select Wireless security for the router you are using. Use WEP or WAP with 64 bit security. Use the same key on your desktop to connect to this secure connection.

This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

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

I have a Belkin FSD9230-4 wireless router, it says it is unsecured when I go on using my laptop. How do I secure the wireless connection?


You will have to login to the router's web utility, go to wireless security settings, and choose either WEP, or WPA. After selecting one of the two you will need to select a passphrase which you will need the next time you connect. I suggest WPA personal, because it offers a stronger encryption method than wep, making it more secure.
