Ok I need a little more information here, but can definitely help you. Do you currently have any computers hooked up to this router, and are any of them working? Do you have the model number of the router? It should be located on the actual router unit somewhere, either on a sticker on the bottom, or somewhere similar.

Please let me know this information and I can definitely help you fix this!

Thanks,
Tim

    Yes, usually the network key (sometimes called a password) is also on that same label, so you probably did just find it. Is the one computer that works now physically attached to the router (yes that's the box with the blinking lights, probably says 2WIRE on it, according to your first post at least) or is it wirelessly connected? If it is wireless, who set that up originally? They would definitely know your network key.

    Thanks!

Need passkey for a motorola H700. it says it can connect to my pantech jest 2 and i need the passkey


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

How do I get to see the code for using a laptop away from the main computer


I understand that you need to check the security key so as to connect the computer with the router's wireless network.


In order to get this key we need to login to the router's page using any computer which is physically connected to router. Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:


1. Open a web browser like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari.

2. Access the router's GUI by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.

3. When prompted for Username and Password, please enter 'admin' for the Username and 'password' for Password.

4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.

5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.

6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase (or network key).

7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.


This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.



I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Need security key


In case of 2 wire router the security key is on the back side of the router.
if you turn it upside down you will find 10 digit number. That might be your security key for the wireless network.
if network key is not there or it is not working then you will need to open the setup page of the router and find out the network key.
if you have any computer connected to the router then use that computer to find out the network key.

How to secure my internet connection via smc router


If you plan to have a wireless network, you should set it up so that only people you choose can access it. Here are a few options for wireless network security.

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is a widely used network security method. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. The receiving computer needs the key to decode the information so that it's difficult for someone on another computer to get onto your network and access files without your permission.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
WPA was created to improve the security of WEP. Like WEP, WPA encrypts information, but it also checks to make sure that the network security key has not been modified. WPA also authenticates users to help ensure that only authorized people can access the network. If your networking hardware works with both WEP and WPA security, we recommend that you use WPA.

There are two types of WPA authentication: WPA and WPA2. WPA is designed to work with all wireless network adapters, but it might not work with older routers or access points. WPA2 is more secure than WPA, but it will not work with some older network adapters. WPA is designed to be used with an 802.1X authentication server, which distributes different keys to each user. This is referred to as WPA-Enterprise or WPA2-Enterprise. It can also be used in a pre-shared key (PSK) mode, where every user is given the same passphrase. This is referred to as WPA-Personal or WPA2-Personal.

802.1X authentication
802.1X authentication can help enhance security for 802.11 wireless networks and wired Ethernet networks. 802.1X uses an authentication server to validate users and provide network access. On wireless networks, 802.1X can work with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) keys. This type of authentication is typically used when connecting to a workplace network.

IF THIS ALL DOSEN'T WORK TRY THE FOLLOWING:

Wireless network security recommendations
If you have a wireless network, there are some additional security precautions that you should take.

Use a network security key
If you have a wireless network, you should set up a network security key, which turns on encryption. With encryption, people can't connect to your network without the security key. Also, any information that is sent across your network is encrypted so that only computers that have the key to decrypt the information can read it. This can help avert attempts to access your network and files without your permission. Common wireless network encryption methods are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and WPA-2.

Change the default administrator name and password on your router or access point
If you have a router or access point, you probably used a default name and password to set up the equipment. Most manufacturers use the same default name and password for all of their equipment, which someone could use to access your router or access point without you knowing it. To avoid that risk, change the default administrator user name and password for your router. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the name and password.

Change the default SSID
Routers and access points use a wireless network name called a service set identifier (SSID). Most manufacturers use the same SSID for all of their routers and access points. We recommend that you change the default SSID to keep your wireless network from overlapping with other wireless networks that might be using the default SSID. It makes it easier for you to identify which wireless network is yours, if there is more than one nearby, because the SSID is typically shown in the list of available networks. Check the information that came with your device for instructions about how to change the default SSID.

Position your router or access point carefully
Wireless signals can transmit a few hundred feet, so the signal from your network could be broadcast outside of your home. You can help limit the area that your wireless signal reaches by positioning your router or access point close to the center of your home rather than near an outside wall or window.

We have 2 computers networked through a router. I have just got a new computer and when I try to connect to the network it asks me for a security key. What is this?


It would seem that your network is actually wireless. What you could do is double check the security key for your wireless network on your router or you could check the other 2 computers, if they are connected wirelessly, for the security key. Then use that security key on your new computer.

What is the security key


You can get the key by going into the setup of the wireless router. That's where you setup a key, or passphrase, and security options for anyone else connecting to your wireless network. Sometimes your router might have a default key on a sticker or in the manual.

Generally you access your wireless routers through the PC that is wired to your router and for setting it up.

You need to first find out how to login to your router's setup. Often it can be using your browser going to 192.168.1.1, but it varies router to router.

From there you can get your key information to be used on the other wireless computers so they can access the wireless network.

Once you have the key, you then go to each wireless computer and go to your Control Panel, then click Network Connections, then look for any wireless connection. If your wireless router is working, your other wireless computers should see the wireless network, then click to connect.

How do i hook up 2nd computer to router wireless ''g'' wgr614


Hi, if this computer is going to be wired then just connect it to the router using a ethernet cable and can access internet.

For wireless, follow the steps below to check security key:

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.1.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router (User Name = admin Password = password unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the Key that has a black dot before it.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.
In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

Scan for the wieless network on the concerned computer and connect to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
