The security passphrase is something you set when setting the wireless security on your router. If you do not know what it is you will need to log into your router and look it up. The link below will help you do this.

How to i retrieve passphrase key of my g wireless router model F5D7234-3


Access the router settings page. Please refer to the manual of your router username and password, then access the wireless settings page. There you'll see the SSID or the Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase as well. You have an option to personalize it so that you wont forget your passphrase

Thanks for using Fixya

Need passphrase---it doesn't work 192.168.1.1


When you connect a LAN cable from your computer to the Linksys then open a browser and enter the configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
Login = admin
PW = admin
Then go to the wireless setup
The WPA or WPA2 encryption can be setup using a passphrase.
This can be any combination of words and numbers. Eg My computer1 is mad. - This passphrase is used to generate a hexadecimal encryption number. It is easier to remember a phrase than Hex numbers.
You will also need to configure the LAN card in your computer with this passphrase so it can connect to the wireless router. Once the router configuration is complete the LAN cable can removed, it is not needed for wireless connection.

How do you unlock the secured wireless signal when you were not given the code


first you need to connect a cable between a PC and your router. Next she can need to log into the router using a browser. The routers should ask you for a login and password. the default password for your router is motorola. The user ID is admin. I have attached a link to the manual for your router. Page 71 of the manual will explain how to set up your wireless password/passphrase. That is the security code being asked for. Use the same passphrase with your PC when asked.

The link is: http://broadband.motorola.com/consumers/products/SBG900/downloads/SBG900_User_Guide.pdf

If this sounds your problem please leave feedback otherwise send me more information about what you tried in how worked out.

Forgotten the passphrase


ummm ...how can we know what passphrase you set on your router? .... lol

Find the reset button ...it will no doubt be behind a little hole in the case somewhere that you have to stick a pin in to press it.

This will set the router back to factory defaults with no security set. Then you can enter a new passphrase.

Securing wireless router


Click here for a link to the instruction manual. All this was retrieved from p.48
First off make sure your wireless connection is working
1. On the Setup tab of the Router’s web-based utility, click the Enable radio button next to WEP. Then click the Edit WEP Settings button.
2. You will see the 2.4GHz, 54g, Wireless-G (WEP) screen (Figure C-1). Next to Default Transmit Key, select which WEP key (1-4) will be used when the
Router sends data. Make sure the receiving device is using the same key.
3. For the WEP Encryption drop-down box, select the level of WEP encryption you wish to use, 64-bit 10 hex digits or 128-bit 26 hex digits. Higher encryption levels offer higher levels of security, but due to the complexity
of the encryption, they may decrease network performance.
4. Instead of manually entering WEP keys, you can enter a Passphrase in the Passphrase field. This Passphrase is used to generate one or more WEP keys. It is case-sensitive and should not be longer than 16 alphanumeric characters. (This Passphrase function is compatible with Linksys wireless
products only. If you want to communicate with non-Linksys wireless products, enter the WEP key manually on the non-Linksys wireless products.)
After you enter the Passphrase, click the Generate button to create WEP keys.

Note: All Wireless-G and 802.11b devices in your network must use the same Passphrase or WEP key.
5. WEP keys enable you to create an encryption scheme for wireless LAN transmissions. If you are not using a Passphrase, then manually enter a set of values in each Key field. (Do not leave a key field blank, and do not enter all zeroes. These are not valid key values.) If you are using 64-bit WEP encryption, then the key must be exactly 10 hexadecimal characters in length. If you are using 128-bit WEP encryption, then the key must be exactly 26 hexadecimal characters in length. Valid hexadecimal characters are “0”-“9” and “A”-“F”.
6. Check all the values, and click theApply button to save your WEP settings and return to the Setup screen. To cancel any changes you’ve entered on this page, click the Cancel button. To get more information about the features, click the Help button.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.

Procedure to secure wep


Routers can be secured in two common manners.

First the network access as you have started using WEP which I will discuss more later.

Second by assigning an administrator password. This prevents anyone except a person possessing the password from configuring your router. This is good to do however if you forget the password resetting the router will clear all of your configuration -- so keep notes to reconfigure your router in a secure place before assigning this password.

Now as to WEP encryption -- first it is preferred your network name (SSID) be unique in your area hopefully you have already changed that. Second WEP generally requires the entry of a passphrase that causes the generation of 4 keys and in a separate box the selection of one of those 4 keys as active. Wireless adapters I have seen either accept a passphrase and active key number like the router or they require the specific active key value from the router. Keys contain hex values characters 0-9 and A-F and are not identical to the alphanumeric passphrase that was entered. Entering the appropriate value into the adapter is required for successful connection.

Security is achieved on the network not by entering the "password" every time you connect to the network but by storing the passphrase (password) and/or the generated by-products in both the computer and router in advance. Since no unauthorized persons know the passphrase or password the access on the wireless is secured. Changing the passphrase periodically is not a bad idea to maintain the security of the network (must be changed in both the router and the device with a wireless adapter. Loss of a computer means loss of the control of the passphrase and should result in a change of the passphrase too.

If you have any additional questions please respond to this with an additional comment.
