Wireless bridge cannot communicate


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup 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 forgot my WEP key for my ps3


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

I cannot connect to my wireless internet. it will find the signal but it will not connect to it. but if i used it somewhere else that has a wireless connection it will connect.


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, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I need the passphrase for wireless network for my windows 7 starter


the passphrase is whatever you made it when you were setting up the router's wireless security.
If you have forgotten your passphrase, you'll have to completely reset the router by holding in the reset button at the back for 10 seconds, and then reprogramming the wireless security.
You will then need to set all the other wireless devices you own to the new passphrase.

We have a probleme whit engenius 3220 in security set web key and what is the encryption key 1, key 2, key 3 , key 4. If we change web for none in security we have a default encryption type mismatch...


If you really wish to use WEP encryption, you should enter your WEP key in the key1 field. However, WEP is weak and breakable in under four seconds. I would recommend using the WPA encryption instead, with a passphrase. The AES mode is strongest, but the TKIP mode is compatible with more and older machines.
The reason you are getting "default encryption type mismatch" is because the encryption type has to be set exactly the same on the AP side and on the bridge side in order for you to communicate. When it is not the same type, you get this error. If it is the same type and you just have the wrong password, the error will be different.

I did not know my network key for wireless lan, Satellite L300 se


The network key is an encryption key ie. WEP/WPA-PSK key.
This key is configured in the wireless setup of the wireless access point or wireless router.
The key can be a hexadecimal number but most people use a Passphrase.
The Passphrase can be a phrase such as "I'm am so smart 12345" and this is used to generate the hexadecimal encryption key.

Can't find passphrase or security key on linksys-g model # wrt55rg


If you didn't tape the key to the bottom of the router, you get to log in and create a new one. Or did you lose the login password to the router too?

Oops, if you did, try the reset button and set it up again.

How do i set a password?


Follow these rules for a secured WLAN
connect to your router as admin using Lan cable.
Set A router password. (if not already set)
Change your SSID from standard name
Consider do not broadcast SSID
In wireless setting select WPA-PSK security protocol
Create a Passphrase to be used as key (write it down)
save and use new setting in every connected device of this network.
I recommend first broadcast your network with WPA-PSK password.
Find your network with your clients (PC, Console, print server) use pw to connect in secured way.
Be sure to set client network properties to "connect to this network even if not broadcasting"
For increased security modify your network in Router to "No broadcast"
