Your 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.

Do you have a desktop or other computer that's on the network? Use it to log into the router and retrieve the wireless key.

I have lost the pass code/security key for the Msi router at my mother's house. What can I do to retrieve it? Nick


The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Access the router settings page. Please refer to the manual of your router username and password, then access the wireless settings page. There you'll see the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase as well. You have an option to personalize it so that you wont forget your passphrase

Ive lost my router wireless security key


Goto any pc on your network and look for your gateway IP address. Once you have this you may type it into a browser. You will be prompted to enter your user name and password for this device. Once you get in you can click wirelss tab and goto security. There you should see all your wireless keys. If you can not access the unit please reset your router back to factory at what point you will then need to create a new key and associated that with all your wireless network devices.

I lost my encryption key password


As far as I know there is no way to retrieve a lost encryption key password. All I am aware that you can do is to re-set the router to factory defaults and pretty much start from scratch. I am sure not what you wanted to hear.

Wireless


WPA keys are configured into the wireless router by the owner. If you do not remember your WPA key you need to access your wireless router's configuration to retrieve it. An alternative possibly could be to retrieve it from one of your other wireless devices (like a laptop) that is already connected to the router. if it will display the value.
