What you will need to do is connect directly to your router via a wired connection and login to the router's interface to look up what your WEP password is. The steps at the link below should be the same as your router depending on the firmware that is installed on it.

Reset the Netgear back to the factory defaults to remove the password.
To RESET the Netgear, power up the Netgear then press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router until all the LEDs flash. Connect a LAN cable from the Netgear to the LAN port on your computer, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL -
The default login = admin
The default PW = password You can now change the default admin password and configure the wireless settings.
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.

How to find my network key


try to login to the router page. Usually these details are either behind or under neath your router and then go to wireless settings or wireless security page of your router and retrive the password.

If you have lost the admin password also then you need to reset the router and re-configure the entire setup.

I do not know the wireless key and do not know how to find it. Need to find it currently without a PC (waiting replacement). If not possible how do I when I have my new PC.


If you have forgotten the password for the wireless there are two ways to work this problem..

1) You could connect the router hard wired to a computer and open the router setup and retrive your password.
2) If you know all the settings for your ISP and you have the router installation disk you could reset the router for 10 will go back to default settings and you could connect to the wireless and then re-configure the router.(Usually there would be default password for the wireless which will be printed at the base of your router if a default security exists.)

Hope this helped.

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Lost code

Hello, You should be able to reset the router to default. Look for a reset hole on the back. This will set the SSID, WEP and WPA off. ID and Password would be set to "admin". You can then turn WEP back on and set a new PSK. Hope this helps.

If you mean the encription key, which technically is not a password, you may get it acessing to the router page with Internet Explorer. You will need your router's IP and a wired connection.

hope it helps
