I forgot my WEP key for my ps3


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

I can't conncet to my wireless-G broadband router


you are trying to connect to the wireless network on a new wireless computer.
When you try to connect to the wireless network, it is asking you for the password. That means your You wireless network must be secured
You will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
Is there any computer online using the router.
check the IP address on that computer.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.

Wrt310n adding wireless laptop


Hi,

If you are using windows xp :

Go to Start>control panel> Network and internet> network connections > right click on wireless network > select 'view available wireless networks' and select your home network and click connect. If it asks for a password i guess u have it or if u dont have then go to Internet Explorerand and type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar, it will ask for a username and a password, type admin as username and the same for password. it will take you to the lynksys page....then select wireless and click wireless security, it will show you the wireless password.......

If u have windows vista :

Click Start > go to 'connect to' > select the wireless network you want to connect to and the rest is the same as windows xp....


Hope this works out

Regards,
Anup

Yo! if you dont remember the password try connecting the laptop to the router to access the routers page or you could also do it on the main PC that is physically connected to the router.

go to the setup page of the router normally routers ip would be 192.168.1.1 but not always depends on the manufacturer.

once your on the setuppage of the router try to go to wireless section and wireless security.
on that you can get the wireless key that should work.

Peace.
