You can follow this steps.
1. Access the router setup page using your browser (Internet explorer or firefox), they in the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 this is the default IP address of your rotuer, if you changed it used the address that you set it to. Then you will be asked for a username and password, just leave the username blank and for password type admin (this is the default password, but if you changed it type the password that you have set on the router).
2. After doing that you will get in to the setup page of your router, At the top you click on the tab tha says wireless then under the Wireless tab click on wireless security. Just set the security mode to WPA-PSK or WPA-Personal, then in the passphrase or personal key box type the password that you want to use to secure your network (the password should be 8-63 characters alphanumeric) the click save settings at the bottom. After saving the settings your done.
3. All you need to do now is to reconnet to your wireless network and now it will ask you for the network key, and just type it and confirm it. And you will be connected again to your secured network.

If you still have any problems just reply to this post.

What is a wireless network connection network key also called a wep or wpa key. Or where can i find it?


Both are security protocol which enable the owner of an wireless network to limit the acces to that network and to protect the data that runs through that network.
WEP stands for WIRED EQUIVALENT PRIVACY and it' a security algorithm designed for wireless networks with the intention to provide a level of confidentiality close to the wired networks
WPA stands for Wi-Fi Protected Access and it's a security protocol designed to secure wireless networks
If your wireless device discovered a network that require such keys,that means that the owner of
that network secured his network,only people having acces are those who know the key.
If you have a Wi-Fi router and you forgot the key ,you have to acces the configuration page of the router ,go to wireless security page and reconfigure it, by changing the key.(get the manual of the router and follow the steps)

What is the WEP key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is an older network security method that's still available to support older devices, but it's no longer recommended. 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. However, WEP security is relatively easy to crack. f4008eb.jpg

I need to add a password to my wireless network


Do you want to secure the wireless network ?
For that you will need to access the router set up.
You said that you want to add a password. I don't understand that. Is your wireless network already secured ? Or you want to make it secured ?
If it is already secured then it must have the password to connect to the wireless network. You can use only 1 password for the network. You can not use 2 password for the wireless network.
If your network is not secured yet then you will need to make it secured and enable password protection on it.

I have a wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster and I need help obtaining the security code or better yet, help in setting the security to "on" because my internet company said that someone...


you will need to log in to your router.
in the wifi section select the wpa/psk security and use the serial number of the router as the security key.
you will then need to use this same number to access the router using wifi
