If your network is being created by an Apple AirPort base station, use AirPort Utility to put the base station into "manual setup" mode, then pull down the "Base Station" menu and select "Equivalent Network Password". Try the value shown there.

Default network security key for apple airport


The Network Security Key is possibly the same pw as the network you are attaching to. This device can be configured in so many different ways.
If you can't figure it out then use the reset button on the back or use paper clip in reset hole.

To set up and configure your AirPort Extreme to use AirPort for wireless networking and Internet access, use the setup assistant in AirPort Utility.
The manual may be of some help... Available here

Wi-fi not working


If you are connecting to someone's wireless network without theie permission then they most likely decided to secure their wireless network.
You can connect to a free wireless network at locations such as the airport, Macdonalds or Starbucks etc. These are ususllly unsecured wireless networks.

To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

We just bought an Apple Airport Extreme router. After installing the Airport Utility software, and hooking up the router, we can not configure the base station using the Airport Utility. No matter what...


First time you should connect an Ethernet cable to the AirPort, and set it up with the software it came with. Then take a note of the wireless network's name (SSID) and the password (you might want to chance them to your personal preference though), security youre using (WEP, WPA, or WPA2)

I'm trying to find the password for my wireless internet to hook up a new laptop?


  • Open internet explorer on the working computer or connect the ethernet cable to the new laptop
  • Any webbrowser will do,
  • delete the webaddress from the top bar and type
  • 192.168.1.254
  • Hit enter, Type admin for both username and password.
  • Ok to login
  • On the top of the page click wireless
  • Then subheading choose wireless security
  • Find passphrase on that page
  • this is the wireless password you need, if you cannot see this password or it is blanked with dots, you will need to type in a new password of your choice and click apply
  • If you can see the password, just the page and type it as the wireless key on the new laptop
  • If you change it you will have to reconnect your working computer with the new password you created

Any problems get back to me. Hope this helps

I can't access my wireless internet, asking for a pass phrase


the D Link router is what is causing the issue - Cut your losses and get a linksys ( netgears are ok so maybe one of those ) but avoid D Link and Belkin equipment as far as wireless or networking goes.

An apple airport extreme ( although a bit more expensive ) are very good.

Internet drops over wireless router


Check to see what wireless mode you are using between the router and airport card. They are up to the "N" version now and if your router doesn't support and the airport is set to "auto" it could cause the issue. Try and match the settings with the router and see if that helps with dropping the signal.

Also are you using security with you wireless?
And how strong of a signal is it?

Can not find a non secure signal


hi..
sadly to say but there are no default key codes,its usually setup by the person who has setup the wireless networks,people are becoming more and more aware of the consequences of unsecured networks so most of them are securing the wireless networks,you can try connecting your laptop wirelessly to hotspot areas like airport,cafe and other places..incase if you want wireless internet from home and if you have mobile connection from verizon or sprint then you can get in touch with them and get wireless mobile broadband which will be your own wireless network and you donot have to depend upon someone elses unsecured network and the advantage of this type of wireless card is you can use the internet outside the home as well as when you are travelling...

How do I copy the security key?


the solution to this one is you need to reconfigure the router. you need to disable the security settings for your router. (WEP or WPA) then try to put in a new SSID and new security key. that's the only way that you can get a new security/passphrase key for your network. for further assistance you need to contact the router manufacturer for router configuration.

i hope this helps.
