Almost all routers have a reset button about the size of a pencil lead on the back. Sometimes it is painted red. Find it, use a paper clip and push the button in while the router is on. Hold it until all the lights on the front go off/on.
Now your router is restored to factory defaults without any security. Reset your SSID and password, write it down and tape it to the bottom of the router.
If this answered your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs.

Where is the network security key


The network security key is set by the user when the home network is setup. It prevents people from stealing your wireless signal. If you have forgot it, or didn't set it up but it still is asking for one, you can unplug and hit the reset button on your router and delete the home network you have on your main computer. From there, just run the network setup wizard from the main pc and set your network security key to something you can remember as well as write it down. Then you should be set to add any other pc to your home network as long as when you try to connect, you put the correct key in.

Can i connect new pc to old connection


You simply need to disconnect old computer from the network and connect the new one.
Are you trying to connect wired computer or wireless?

If you are trying to connect a wired computer then you don't need to do anything.
Just take out the Ethernet cable from the old computer and connect it to the new computer.

If you are connecting a wireless computer to the network then make sure that you have all the settings of your wireless router.
If your wireless network is secured then you should know the correct network key.
What is the operating system on your computer?

I will suggest you a website " The Router Setup " which may help you connect your new computer to the old wireless network.

I am trying to connect to the wireless cisco and it is saying I need a passphrase or security key but I don't have one... How do I connect?


When you clickRefresh network list, then Choose your wirelessnetwork and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, itwill asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I don't remember my network key,so I cannot use it


Try to connect you computer with an Ethernet cord. If the Internet is working check the default gateway of the computer by typing "ipconfig" on the command prompt. Type the default gateway on the address bar. There you will see the login page for your wireless router. Check the default username and password from the router's manual and enter it. If it accept the user name and password, look for the wireless settings, password should be seen there. If not create a new one. If default user name and password doesn't work reset the router. There should be a reset button or pinhole on the back of the router. Press and hold it for 10seconds. Try again typing the default gateway on the address bar then re enter the default user name and password. If it work your router now do not have a network key (unsecured). You can create a new network key on the router's configuration page.

Limited to no activity


Hi,

You refering to Limited or No Connectivity. It only means that when your trying to connect wirelessly the Network Key that youve entered on the conmputer did not match the Network Key on the router. For you to access your router you need to type 192.168.1.1 to he address bar of your browser and it will ask you for a username and password. The default username is "leave it blank" and the default password is admin. Go to the wireless settings page check the SSID and the Network Key. Bare in mind that you can personalize your SSID and network key for you to easily remember it. Now that you already have the information needed go to your computer click on START then CONNECT TO, select the SSID of your router click on connect then enter your Network Key.

Rate me if this help you so that i can help other people

Can't remember my pin number


Are you trying to connect to the wireless network
on a WINDOWS VISTA / 7 computer? Sometimes on the
windows vista computer , it will ask you for the
PIN number when you try to connect to the wireless
network. On the same window at the bottom you will
find the option " I want to connect to the network
or I want to enter the key manually". If you click
on that option , it will ask you for the security
key.
If you don't know the security key, then you will
need to check the settings of the router. You will
need to open the router set up page where you can
check all the wireless settings of teh router. If
you want, you can also find the PIN on the wireless
settings page of the router.

I am trying to connect another computer to lynskys cannot remember my network key I thought it was nintendo64 but wont connect. Can you help me find the network key


Your going to have to reset the router - its the only way. Take a paper clip and hold in the reset button on the back for about 30 seconds. Then power the router off and on again and youll be back to defaults. You will then need to go back into the router and setup yous SSID and security again.
