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 .

I hope that I have answered your question about getting your security Key :)

Can not connect to internet thorough my dlink 614 router It tells me the internet security key is incorrect even though i know it is not


Hi,

Please access the web interface of the router and confirm the security key. Also, you can try to change the security key. It can be a possibility that your computer is not synchronizing properly with the current security settings.

If you find that you are putting the right security key then please change the security type to wep 64 bit or wep 128 bit and configure a new key. Also, change the SSID or the network name and try to connect.

In case of any issues please let me know which windows you are running and the security settings on the router.

Thanks,

Rashish

Can't get the Linksys Router's list of Network Security Settings


The router has a built-in web-server.
So, just connect your web-browser to that web-server,
select the correct page, and click PRINT.

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.

Security of wireless network


You can directly connect your computer to the router thorugh the routers "internet" port and then re-run setup. OR you can type the IP address of the router into your address bar (the default is tipically 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and then enter the router username and password (I believe the Belkin default is username:"Admin" password:"Password") in the admin control planel look for a "wireless security" tab. You can then define your wirelss security settings there. Just remember to configre the same settings on all devices that will connect to the router.
