Well Every Wireless Router when u set that up , u Have to Secure it with a Password
u wud have Done that too.
If u have any Other Computer going online with ur N/w, Check Wireless Settings on Router
Or Else Check with Linksys, they'll help u to get that WEP or WPA key

All the Best !!!!!!!!

How do I put my signal private


Go to security setting and generate a WAP/WEP key.
Look in your manual, it shows you step by step.
You login to router with a browser, and then simply go to security section, generate the key, save in notepad, save all setting in router, reboot router, Then attempt to login to the WiFi SSID, and it will ask you for effectively a Password, WEP?WAP Key, simply copy paste that number you saved in notepad, and you will now be able to connect.

I had to reset my router yesterday and now my dell inspiron is asking for the passkey to connect. where do i find this


Ok, you must reset the router up again, you need to log into router, with your browser, set default, login and password, go to the securities TAB, and set your WEP/WAP KEY. Once generated, copy/paste to a notepad document, save that. it's a 128 bit number. Then save your routers new configuration. Reboot your PC, now try to WiFi logon to the router's network, when asked for your "Passkey" your, WEP/WAP KEY, simply copy/paste back that, 128 bit or 16 bit hex number, key, that, you saved in notepad. reboot, There you are done.

I have a wep key and I dont know what it is how would I go about finding out what it is


A WEP or WAP "Key" is the "Password" for want of a better analogy, that is used and generated by a WiFi router/network. When you try to Logon to a Network, it will "Ask" you for the WEP/WAP key, so you can Logon. It is an "Authentication" protocol. Hope that explains it.

I need to add additional numbers to my password.


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.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

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.

I'm trying to connect to internet via wifi and it's asking for a device password. what is that? this is a d430 dell.


I suspect the device that is asking for a password will be your wireless router. Normally, the password, or key, is printed on a label on the side or bottom of the router.
