If you already have access to the wireless network with another computer, you can download WirelessKeyView onto that computer and get the key from that.

The program is free and doesn't require installation. You just run the program and it will tell you all of the security keys stored on your computer. The program is for Windows, so if you are using a mac, I can look up a program for that. You will need a program to open zip files, but Windows ME and up, and most mac's, will be able to do that.

Do you have a desktop or other computer that's on the network? Use it to log into the router and retrieve the wireless key.

I am trying to hook up a new wireless printer, and I need to know a couple of issues. My motem is an Actiontec M1000 ssid is myquest3677 and I need to find the password, and the WLAN access point/router


Hi,

Welcome to FIxya. If you need you Security Key or Password (Network Key) on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. 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 192.168.0.1, the Default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings and you'll find the Network Key or Passphrase (Password). You can alsoThen Personalize you Network Key or Passphrase so that you can easily remember it. Then WLAN Access point is the Network Name or SSid which is myquest3677

Thanks for using Fixya.

Lost security code for wireless linksys router


Hi alockklock2,

If you want to obtain the password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. 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 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

You can also reset the router to its factory state but you need to keep in mind that all settings will be back to its default settings. To reset the router press and hold the small reset button at the back of the router using a Pen or a Paper Clip for 15-30 seconds.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i find my security key for motorola wireless


The wireless security key is the encryption key that is set in the wireless router's configuration.
You need to connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open the Internet browser and enter the wireless router's configuration URL, then the default login and the password, provided the login and password has not been changed. The configuration URL, the login and password is in the Motorola router's documentation.
If you have lost the documentation then go to the Motorola's WEB site to download the WR850g wireless router documentation.

No manual - lost password


You will need to reset the router so that you can get in. Unplug the router. Press the reset button with a paper clip while inserting the power. Hold the reset button for about ten seconds.

The modem should be reset to defaults: admin/admin (as user and password) and the gateway address should be 192.168.1.1.

From a hardwired PC, you should be able to point your browser at 192.168.1.1 to reset the password of the router and the network key.

Ive lost my router wireless security key


Goto any pc on your network and look for your gateway IP address. Once you have this you may type it into a browser. You will be prompted to enter your user name and password for this device. Once you get in you can click wirelss tab and goto security. There you should see all your wireless keys. If you can not access the unit please reset your router back to factory at what point you will then need to create a new key and associated that with all your wireless network devices.

Can't hook up wireless printer need ssid and web key/wpa


The SSID is your network name.

The WEP or WPA is the password to get onto the network. Think of the router as the doorman. The printer needs to get into the club so it needs the password otherwise it can't get access.

The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with your router to see how to access this information. Some routers provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key if this is the case.
