You will need to connect to the router with a cable and log into the router configuration page. from there you can navigate to the wireless configuration page and either disable wireless security or retrieve the key. the default IP address for this router should be 192.168.2.1 with login as:
username: admin and password and either: password, admin or blank ( nothing entered for password.)

Need security code for wi fi


There are no defaults for this, but 2 ways to go about.

A. When you have a device like an Android phone which is already able to connect to the wifi network, download WiFi Key Recovery on the Google Play store.

B. Set a new key on the router (this will affect all wireless devices connected to this wifi network)

  1. Connect your computer/ laptop with a network cable directly to your SMC router.
  2. Open your browser e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, and type "192.168.2.1" (without quotes) in the addressbar.
  3. A password is required to login. The default is smcadmin.
  4. Open Security from the menu on the left, click Wireless.
  5. You will be able to set a new WEP or WPA key. Use WPA for better security.

Am i able to connect to the internet using WLAN without te security keys (WEP)


If the wireless network that you are trying to connect, is unsecured then you can connect without the WEP key.
but if the wireless network is secured then you will need the KEY or the password for the wireless network. Without the key you won't be able to connect to the secured wireless network.
If you have the router then you can check the wireless settings of the router and find the wireless network key.

Unable to get wireless access to internet on ps3, keep getting a connection error DNS 80710102 or 800100A, can you advise how to resolve?


Try to disable the security key of your wireless router in the meantime and try to connect your PS3 without the security turned on. If it connects, what you have to do next is to reset or generate a new security key on the wireless router and setup the PS3 - wireless network connections with the new security key.

We have 2 computers networked through a router. I have just got a new computer and when I try to connect to the network it asks me for a security key. What is this?


It would seem that your network is actually wireless. What you could do is double check the security key for your wireless network on your router or you could check the other 2 computers, if they are connected wirelessly, for the security key. Then use that security key on your new computer.

Unfortunately you have to know your security key, it's there for your privacy protection, like passwords to your e-mail or other services.
You have to ask the person who set up the router about the password (key), or ask that person to change it to a new one - and this time write it down and put in a safe place, where you can find it in the future, like on a piece of paper pasted on the router box.
If you change the key on the router, and have other computer(s) using this connection, you will have to re-enter the new key on those machines.

I am trying to to make a wireless connection from my D-Link 2640B router to a new laptop, but I am asked for a security key, which I cannot find. Can I make a connection without it?


If you could make a connection without it it wouldn't be a very good security key would it.

It is also know as a WEP/WAP key and is usually set up by the user although some routers come with a preinstalled one. Ifthis is the case then the default key will be in the router manual and/or on the label under the router.

I need to find my private networks security key by going online the router web based setup page. I can not use the wireless connection until i find the security key.


You need to connect to the router by an Ethernet cable since you cannot connect over wireless without a key. Turn off or disable your radio, then connect an Ethernet cable between the computer and one of the LAN ports on the router. If your computer's Ethernet adapter is configured to get an automatic IP address, you should be able to access the router at this point.

Unable to connect new laptop to network without Dynex security key/passphrase. Screen box asks for security key. I don't have this or know where to get it.


If there's computer strongly connected (by network wire) to your router, go to the following site: http://192.168.2.1, leave the password empty, from there when you get inside you may see the key (try looking for any menu contains the word wireless)
