I hooked my Belkin-G-Plus-Mimo-39000 to my laptop. Got it working, now I wanted to get it on my Desktop. its installed, but its asking for a NETWORK KEY. What to do from here.
The Network Key is the method for encrypting a transmission on a wireless network. If you originally setup your wireless router you should know this key. Otherwise, contact whomever setup your wireless router and ask what the key may be. You will want to ask whether it is WEP or WPA as well.
To reset, you can clear the key if you can login to the router, otherwise holding the reset button while the router is unplugged will clear the key (and all the other settings so this might be dangerous). To clear it, hold the button for at least ten seconds.
After a clear, you will need to setup the router again. Consult your documentation if you have it. If it is a netgear or linksys, use IP 192.168.1.1 User=Admin password=Administrator, if you have a D-Link, try IP 192.168.0.1 and User=Admin password=Admin. If it is something else, try either of the previous combos. (unless it is a Cisco, then it is 10.0.0.2 User=Administrator password=Cisco).
Hope this helps, even a little.
