The security key is the encryption or passphrase key. This key is in the router's wireless setting.

Where is the network security key


The network security key is set by the user when the home network is setup. It prevents people from stealing your wireless signal. If you have forgot it, or didn't set it up but it still is asking for one, you can unplug and hit the reset button on your router and delete the home network you have on your main computer. From there, just run the network setup wizard from the main pc and set your network security key to something you can remember as well as write it down. Then you should be set to add any other pc to your home network as long as when you try to connect, you put the correct key in.

Can't find the security code to add wireless router to laptop.


WIRELESS SECURITY ISSUES

Step 1 : Connect Router - Computer ( Wired)

Step 2 : Open Router Setup by typing http://192.168.2.1 on the address bar of internet explorer

Step 3 : On the Left under wireless Click Security

Step 4 : If it asking for a password leave that blank and click submit

Step 5 : On this Page you can find the WPA Key ( If it is a bunch of dots then Uncheck "OBSCURE PSK ")

Step 6 : IF the security mode is WEP then the key 1 will be your password

I am trying to add another computer but when tryin to connect its asking for my security key and I dont know what this is please help???


The security key is the password that your router requires for the security settings that have been specified. You can set up a security key (or change your current one) by logging into the router's settings and going to the Wireless Security section under the Wireless tab.

Want to add new laptop...no idea of security code or user name....model wrt54g


You can't bypass the security of the router. It's either you ask the owner for the security key or passphrase of the network or reset it, but if you do so you need to reconnect all computers connected to the router.

How can i retreive the security code to add on to my new laptop?


The question is kind of odd.
RETRIEVE meaning you once had it?
Add like security to your lap top?
I think your asking for how to access a router with security?
Reset your router by pressing the reset button.
This will remove the security.
Connect to the router, access its menu, and add security again.

I need the security key to my existing wireless netgear router.


The Security Key is normally used for Wireless routers to protect your connection from any unauthorized use. As you have said that you do not have the Security key for your router with you, the best way to connect your ACER laptop to the Netgear router is by asking your Wireless service provider to reset the security key & freshly reentering the same on both of your HP & ACER laptops.

Belkin router is working with desk top computer. add laptop


It's asking for the security word that you entered into the router when you set up wireless security. You will need to enter both the wireless SSID, and the security key to make the system work.

No access for other laptops on my wireless router


You need to access the router's setup page using a computer that has Internet connection through the router. To do that, launch IE from that computer and type 192.168.2.1. It will then asks for a username/password. Try leaving the username and password blank. If that doesn't work, try admin for username and leave the password blank.

It will then open your router's setup page. Just click on wireless tab on the left panel and then click security. There you can set security mode to disable.

Hope this helps!
