This is the Password to get onto your Network, If you dont have this, There is no way to just find this on the Computer, You would need to reset the Router and Start over again, To do this, Look on the Back of your Router and there should be a Small Button, Take a Paperclip/Pen and Hold the Button for about 10 Seconds, After this You will need to go through the Setup all over again. ****Be Warned**** Do Not do this unless your Willing and Capable of installing the Network again, You will be looking for a world of Trouble if you do this and Then Give up

Trying to secure wireless network


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you want to secure the network you all you need to do is to access the router settings page and put a security either WEP, WPA or WPA2 and a Network Key or Passphrase.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.2.1, the Default password is blank

Click on Security under Wireless, Select WEP, WPA or WPA2 and personalize a Security Key or Network Key (Passphrase). Security Key serves as a password on the network.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

My router is hooked up and working with dsl. but my wireless adapter is not. wrt54g


To check the wireless settings, use a computer that can get online or is hardwired connected to the router.

Follow the steps below:

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type 192.168.1.1

2. It will prompt you for the username and password. By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

3. Go to the Wireless tab.

4. Click the Wireless Security tab.

a. If the mode is WEP, take note of the Passphrase and Key (you need to copy only the default transmit key). If WEP encryption is 64 bits, you have to copy the 10 digits security key.

NOTE: If you are using a Linksys wireless adapter on the additional computer, you may use the passphrase for the security key.

b. If the mode is WPA, copy the Personal key or the Enterprise Key.

5. On the wireless adapter's settings, you should be able to detect your SSID and then just type the passphrase or security key.

Security key or passphrase


If you are connecting to your own router and not someone elses by mistake, omeone has setup a security key on your router. It doesn't have one by default. Ask whomever installed the router what it is. Hope this helps!

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.

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.

Procedure to secure wep


Routers can be secured in two common manners.

First the network access as you have started using WEP which I will discuss more later.

Second by assigning an administrator password. This prevents anyone except a person possessing the password from configuring your router. This is good to do however if you forget the password resetting the router will clear all of your configuration -- so keep notes to reconfigure your router in a secure place before assigning this password.

Now as to WEP encryption -- first it is preferred your network name (SSID) be unique in your area hopefully you have already changed that. Second WEP generally requires the entry of a passphrase that causes the generation of 4 keys and in a separate box the selection of one of those 4 keys as active. Wireless adapters I have seen either accept a passphrase and active key number like the router or they require the specific active key value from the router. Keys contain hex values characters 0-9 and A-F and are not identical to the alphanumeric passphrase that was entered. Entering the appropriate value into the adapter is required for successful connection.

Security is achieved on the network not by entering the "password" every time you connect to the network but by storing the passphrase (password) and/or the generated by-products in both the computer and router in advance. Since no unauthorized persons know the passphrase or password the access on the wireless is secured. Changing the passphrase periodically is not a bad idea to maintain the security of the network (must be changed in both the router and the device with a wireless adapter. Loss of a computer means loss of the control of the passphrase and should result in a change of the passphrase too.

If you have any additional questions please respond to this with an additional comment.
