I cant get on the internet because it says a security key is needed


Most Wi-Fi network connections have a security key in place to avoid neighbors from connecting to your home network. The easiest way to find or change the security key would be to use a computer directly connected to your router, and access the router settings through a web browser.

Each specific brand of router has a different address to enter in order to gain access, but it should be in the router manual.

Cant get into my yahoo email to read an cant acses my password


Thank you for using FixYa
There could be a number of reasons for this problem in Yahoo.
Get out of your browser and go back in again.
Be sure you have cookies enabled in your browser.
Click on the button that says 'forgot password' and they will give you key words to gain access.
Sometimes it is a temporary glitch and may correct itself in a few hours.
Sometimes there is a security breach of some sort and they will close your account.
Go into Yahoo and search help, account, and follow the instructions.
keep in mind, the only source for gaining access to Yahoo, is Yahoo and no one else has your password unless they have stolen it.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

I forgot my secuity key for my router. I need to put in a new one- or find the old one. I have a internet tv that will not work without the secuity key -please help


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the Security key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

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 Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
You can also reset the router by pressing the Reset button at the back of it for 15-30 seconds using a Pen and a Paper Clip.

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

Where do I look on my "main" computer (hard wired


Hi dkusner,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need your Wep/Wpa Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key (Wep/Wpa Key) or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

Don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya

Hi , I'm trying to set up a wirelessnetwork and i'm being asked to enter my WEP key ,where will i find this ? Thanks


Is it YOUR wireless network? If yes, then whatever you set up as the WEP key when you set up the wireless network -- that's it. If it's not your wireless network, you won't be able to gain access to the internet without the person who set it up providing that password.

If it is your network and you forgot the password, please reply with the router's model number and I can help you reset it.

Icannot connect my ipod touch to the network i entered my security code and password for the router and it didnt work


Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase(or network key).
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new Password and click apply. You will then have to use the same Password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

If I have helped you, please help me, and rate this suggestion the highest FixYa rating. If you cannot rate this post with the highest rating, then please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Anand

My psp wont connect to my wireless internet at home, its asking for a WPA Key. i dont know what that is so i cant get it to connect, please help. i live in south africa if that helps


Your wpa key is the key that you created to secure your wireless network. You are going to need this for any wireless device you try to use on your network because it is to stop unauthorized access. You will need to access your wireless router to find out the key if you do not have it written down. You should be able to do this using your computer. Most wireless routers will require you to connect to it with a network cable in order to access it to gain this info.
