Log in to the D-Link wireless router's administration interface. This is usually done by opening "http://192.168.0.1/" or "http://192.168.1.1/" in your web browser. Some administration interfaces will help you obtain the key, but there's no real way to tell without trying it. If you've also forgotten the password for the administration interface, consult your router's manual for the default password.

Reset the router's configuration if you also can't remember the password to the administration interface or you just want to start over. Using a small object to put into the hole of the small reset button on the back of the router, press the button and hold it down for several seconds. A pen or toothpick or paperclip will work.

Reconfigure the router, including your router's SSID and WEP or WPA options. Consult your router's manual for specific steps on this task if you're unsure how to proceed. Choose a new password and a new network encryption key. The password should be difficult to guess, but not so difficult that you will forget it (again).

Write the information down in a hidden but handy location, such as inside your router manual. Recovering a lost password is complicated, and it's often less effort to create a new key and distribute it to your users. If you can't log in to your administration interface or the interface will not tell you your network key, then the key is permanently lost.

No internet connection Message Wireless


You need to connect your computer directly to your router through an ethernet cable. Then, you need to log into your router's configuration settings page (the webpage used to initially set up the router). Once you log onto it, go under the wireless security section, and there you should find the network key (might be know as passkey).
