It's in there under Wireless Security. Getting into the router might be a trick. By default, you log inot the gateway (usually 192.168.1.1 and the default login is admin and password. If the default password or gateway has been changed, then you probably have to either find the password or reset the router. If you're using WPA PSK, you'll have to set a new key as the old one is not visible. If it's WEP, then the key should be visible.

It's best to log into the router from a WIRED connection rather than wireless.

Do you mean the key to log onto your wireless network? Plug a computer directly into the wireless router via the ethernet cable and go to 192.168.0.1. or 192.168.1.1in Internet Explorer. I believe one of those default address for netgear routers. Login to the router, the default login is login:admin password:password then select 'wireless settings' on the left and you should see the key.

If any of the default info has been changed and you cannot login, you will need to reset by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds. But you will have to reconfigure the wireless network and reconnect all computers that were previously connected.

I need help getting the wireless key from the router


If you need wireless password(security key like WEP or WPA) or you would like to setup wireless security for your Netgear router, access the router setup page by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1(sometimes it's 192.168.0.1) in the address field of your browser and then press Enter.
Enter
admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).

After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the Wireless Key(For WEP you need Key 1,2,3 or 4 whichever is selected... For WPA you need passphrase) or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.

Forgot security code for router netgear mbr624gu


If you're talking about wireless network key. you can access your netgear router page to view your wireless password and network settings.

to log in to the router:

1. connect the pc/laptop straight from the router using an ethernet cable.

2.Open a Web browser on your computer, and connect to the router by typing
http://192.168.0.1 or www.routerlogin.com in the address field of your browser.

3.When prompted, enter the router default user name of admin, and default password of password. The Router Status screen will come up.

4. Select Wireless Settings from the main menu to display the Wireless Settings screen.

from there you'll be able to view your network key.

Note: here's the download link for your netgear user manual.

We just purchased another laptop computer and cannot connect to the internet. I forgot my password. I have netgear as my wireless. How do I find my password.


The WPA encryption key (password) configured in the Netgear router's wireless settings. Go to your router's wireless settings to get this key and use this key to configure the laptop's wireless card.

My pc has locked me out of the internet and i unfortunately didnt save the WEP key, the router is a NetgearWGT624 v3


The WEP encryption key is stored in the wireless setting in the Netgear wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Netgear router and open IE browser and enter the Netgear configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1) default login = admin default PW = password (type in the login password if you had changed it).
In the wireless encryption setting note down the encryption key. Use this key to configure the wireless card in the computer.

If you forgotten the PW then you can reset the router back to the factory configuration by using a sharp point and pressing the reset button at the back of the router until the LEDs flash, then release the Reset button.
Then login as previously stated. You can then create a new encryption key. I suggest you use WPA2 or WPA encryption key because it is much stronger than WEP.
I also suggest :-
Change the default password
Change the default SSID
For additional wireless security - enable MAC address filtering (this allows only listed MAC addresses of wireless cards to connect to this router - add the MAC address of your wireless card to the MAC address table in the wireless router).
Don't forget to configure the wireless card in the computer with the router's SSID and encryption key.

Forgot my password on netgear wifi


If I understand your question correctly, you need the wireless key for your network.

1) If you have a computer that connects to the router wirelessly already, you can recover the wireless key by downloading this program: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html. It will show you the key the computer is using to connect to the network.

2) Log into the router and change the wireless key. You can start here to find the manual for your particular model:

Network key


If you forgot your admin password too, it's gonna be tough.

On a computer connected to the network go to www.routerlogin.com the usnername is always admin and the default password is password. If that gets you in, you should have no trouble finding the networking key under wireless settings.

If you don't know the login password, you may have to reset the router.
