If you can still access the router configuration, best thing to do is to just change the WPA key. If for some reason you are unable to access the configuration, you can try to reset the router's default/factory settings. Usually, it has a hole for the reset switch on the router which can be pushed for about 10 to 15 seconds using a small pin.

How to find wpa key


The WPA Key is usually established in the router by the user, though there are routers which will generate a random one for you. You must know this key to connect with any wireless device. The key will NOT normally be displayed within the router...it is represented by a series of dots. This is for security issues. If you lost or forgot the WPA key, you will need to create a new one and relink all your wireless devices.

I have a belkin wireless router I have one laptop connected to it now I want to connect another laptop to it but I forgot the password how can I find it?


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

How do I find the WPA key ?


If you are trying to connect the PSP through a network that belongs to you, then the network administrator is the person to ask for the WPA key.
The WPA is like a password. It protects the network from unauthorized access.

I have forgot my wpa key help


Unforunately you cannot recover a lost WPA key. It negates the purpose of the key. You will have to log on to the router and create a new one and make sure all connecting clients have a matching key.

what you want exactly?password for what? username and password for internet in subscriber? or just WEP for wireless key password?
if you forgot the password for username and password for subscriber....theres an option,i dont know what kind of subscriber do you have in your country...if you forgot the username and passowrd you can ask in the subscriber.
regarding in the WEP password for wireless,it doesnt matter,try this..
type 192.168.1.1 in the internet toolbar
username:admin
password:admin
and you can see the configuration,check the wireless settings for WEP...
