You will find it in the routers settings.
If it is asking for YOUR security key, you must have set one when you first installed the router.
Log on to your router / wireless / security
And check what the passord is..... OR
you can use free software to recover your wireless key if you have ever used the key on that computer http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html

To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. 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

Acer doesn't connect to protected wireless internet


It looks like you've keyed it in once, but you keyed it in wrong, so the system thinks the security key is there.

Which Operating System?

You can try connecting to another secured network and see if it asks for a security code, then try going back to your network.

Try getting to the security code by going to the wireless network connection and highlighting your network then click properties.

Try going into the system then device manager uninstall the wifi driver. Reboot the pc and it should auto load the driver when getting back on the desktop. Then see if it ask for the WEP key
The wifi driver will say 802.g 111 or something so you know its not the 10/100 network.

More than likely if you haven't downloaded the correct drivers, maybe?
As it works with the LAN cable, I would think the pc must be OK, I would check the settings for the router and re boot the laptop.
Hope that helps.

Lost signal on acer aspire 6530 lap top, dont know if my daughter has pressed a wrong button or switch ?


There is a little satellite icon next to the always blue (when turned on) skip to next (song) and stop (square) touch buttons. Put your finger on the satellite icon for a few seconds, then move off, a green message should come up on the bottom of your screen saying "Wireless LAN enabled", if it says "Wireless LAN disabled" then there is another problem with your connection.
When the wireless is enabled check that you're connected to the wireless network. Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center (in Vista) you should be able to see:
"Access Local and Internet"

If it's not connected to the internet try resetting your wireless router, if that doesn't work, check you have the correct network password. Right click the two little PC screens (icon) in the bottom left, in the new window right-click your network and go to properties. In the new window, "Security" tab check the settings and type in the correct network security key (password) again. Hopefully you will have a record fo the network security key or your problem will have already been fixed before you get to this point. :)

Acer Aspire 5100 won't connect to secure Verizon Mifi 2200


Hello

Three things cause this in VISTA. First the laptop's MAC address is being rejected by the secure network. In which case you'll need to find out why from the administrator of the secured network. Second, when you first took your laptop to a local coffee shop did you select HOME or WORK network. VISTA has a problem in that if you selected WORK and you then go to your HOME network it won't stop seeing the WORK selection. The only cure I've come accross is to do a SFC/scanow at the CMD prompt. The third cause is a virus. Although VISTA doesn't get many viruses, when it does they cause outstanding problems. Download AVGFREE, MALWARE BYTES and SUPERANTISPYWARE. They all work in VISTA and you'll be surprise what they find.

You can bypass that asking for information step. Simply go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Connection > clik Add > select Add a Network in Range of Computer > then select your wireless network and connect. It will then prompt you to type your wireless network key. You should be good to go after that.
