Hi im able to connect to te internet wireless with my computer but not on any other devise I need to get my security code, how can I do that?


Welcome to Fixya. If you want to connect to the Belkin Router Wirelessly and it is asking you for a Security Code, all you need to do is to access the router settings page and look for the Network Key or Passphrase.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type, the Default password is blank

Click on Security under Wireless and look for the Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase)

Thanks for using Fixya.

The WPA passphrase is a method of configuring the encryption code in the wireless router.
You can generate the encryption code using words and phrases so you can remember the encryption code.
You can view the encryption code in the wireless router or you can generate a new encryption code. If you generate a new encryption code then all the wireless cards in the computers on your wireless network will need to be changed so the computers can communicate/connect with the wireless router.

Network Ssecurity key or passphrase

Your key or passphrase is set in the wireless router. You will need to hook up a pc directly to the router, check the user manual to find the address of the router, then http to it to set the key. Then, once this is done, set the same key in your laptop card setup. If you'll let me know what kind of card you have, I can direct you to the specific location for the key.
