Hi,

I see that you are looking for the security Key settings, to be able to get your security key settings fir the Router you will need to get your Routers IP address.

Step 1. click the stat button on the lower left side of your Desktop screen, click all programs and look for Accessories, then click command promp this should show a black screen with a blinking cursor type in ipconfig then press enter this will show you information about your networks ip address, Look for Default gateway something like this 192.168.2.1 this varies on the router that you have.

Step 2. Enter the IP address on the address Bar of your browser then press enter this should show you the Routers settings page that is where you can see your routers settings for the security key.

to see your security key in windows you will need to check in device manager and click open Network and sharing center.

Upper right hand side you should see Manage wireless networks, click on Manager wireless networks it will show you a list of wireless Routers that you laptop has connected to, in the list look for the Router that you are connecting to and double left click on it it show you a window click on security this will show yout the settings for your windows security but the security will be encrypted as dots, the above instructions will show you how to get the security key from the router to be able to enter it in your windows settings and make the security key on the Router and your windows the same .

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.

What is the security key of netgear wireless connection?


Hi,

Security key in side the router. To get the key you need to access the routers web interface. Please follow the steps below on a wired pc. A pc which is directly connected with the netgear router using an Ethernet cable.

1. Open internet explorer and in the address box type http://192.168.0.1 and press enter. It should ask you a user name and password. User name is admin and password is the word password. click on login or ok.

If you don’t get user name and password window with http://192.168.0.1 and try http://192.168.1.1 or http://routerlogin.net

2. Click on wireless settings on the left hand side.
3. Under the security section if the security is wep then note down the key one and this is the security key you need.

If the security is something else then you wont be able to see the security key it will ******. In this i'll suggest you to change the security key to wep, encryption should be 64 bit and authentication type should be open. In the security key one box you need to type in the security key, The lenght of the key should be 10, you can only use a-f and 0-9. For example 123abc567f. and save the settings.

Try connecting on the wireless pc.

Note: if you change the security key then you need to connect all the wireless devices with the new key.

Hope this helps you!

Rashish.

Bought a new laptop and having trouble connecting to the internet, it keeps asking for a security key, I have tried all the numbers on the bottom of the router but nothing works, could you please tell me...


Your security key is usually in brackets on the bottom of the router. If a key was not provided with the router, you might want to call your internet service provider and ask them what it is. Also, the security key (password) for the router could have been changed at one time from the number that is on the bottom of the router.
