If you need a password, and the computer won't let you log on, you'll have to reinstall windows from a disc in order to wipe the old information off, if this is even possible in Windows 7.

Wireless pass key view


LOST WIFI SECURITY KEY WORD
If you have lost your WEP/WAP wifi key phrase there is no way to recover it except go into the router administration settings and see if it is in plain text there. If not then you will have to make up a new key phase and apply it to ALL your connected devices.
In future, write the key phrase down on a piece of tape and apply it to the bottom of your router. You can use a hint instead of the actual phrase.

What is a WEP Key?


Wireless networks broadcast messages using a radio and are thus more susceptible to eavesdropping than wired networks. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the first in a line of increasingly secure algorithms that include WPA and WPA2 used to secure IEEE 802.11 wireless networks.

Setting WEP up is usually done from the wireless security tab of your router configuration, this is most often accessed from your computer using the web address http: 92.168.1.1 by default. It consists of a pass-phrase and a key. the pass-phrase is used to generate an encryption key, this is then necessary to use any packets (Bits of data) transferred over the air.

Newer routers allow this configuration to be done through a visual application as well.

How do I prevent my neighbor from using my wireless router?


If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router, your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical, it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available" by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow". Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are granted access.

These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at here

I am trying to connect my wireless printer to the router, but when it comes to the WEP code, the one I have does not work. Is there a way to reset the WEP code?


Hi glenncj,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
You can also reset the router by pressing the Reset button at the back of it for 15-30 seconds using a Pen and a Paper Clip.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

What if i want to secure it. do i need the cd?


Im not sure what you are saying is your problem.

To secure your wireless network you first need to log into your routers configuration settings to do that in your address bar of your browser type http://192.168.0.2 enable either WEP or WPA security and tell it what security key or pass phrase to use.

Then on your computer when you try to connect to your wireless routers signal it will ask you to put in the security key or pass phrase you selected and thats that. You are secure.

What is wpa pass phrase while setting wireless printer


WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.

2wire gateway router from windstraem, i need a security key or passphrase, do any of you know what this would be? thank you crush


A pass phrase is a sentence (statement, negation, interrogation) or part of a sentence (phrase) that has some meaning to you and is as such easily remembered by you. It is much easier to recall then a 26 character hexadecimal string. For the pass phrase, make up anything meaningful that you know will remember easily but not too easy to guess by people around you.

Are you talking about your wireless pass key, if nessesary connect a PC directly to your Netopia and reset the pass phrase through the routers control panel/gui, remember you will need to reset all pc conections to the new phrase. If you haven't made any IP changes to the netopia, the default settings are likely to be 192.168.1.254, just use your explorer to browse to this address
