Use first the default username and password according to your router's manual. If it doesn't work reset the router. Look for the reset pin hole on the back of the router. Press and hold it down for 1 seconds.
After that use the default username and password for sure this time it will work. As soon as you are able to access the configuration page of your router please setup a new WEP key to keep you network secured.

Forgot wep key to connect laptop to netgear wireless system. How can i retreive it.


  1. Use an ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it.
  4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.

Forgot the wep key code.


Hi there,
If you forgot the wep key to your internet your best solution would be to reset your router and restore all of your settings to their default value. There should be a rest hole on the back of the router. simply hold down the reset button and then log back into the router using the default ip address (try either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and the default username and password. Once you do that you will have to go and set all of your values again such as your network name and your new wep password.
Hope this helps!!

Forgot my password


Welcome to fixya

If you have forgotten the wireless network key , you can retrieve it from the router itself

Click the below link
http://192.168.1.1

Now it will ask for username and password

Enter username = ( blank) and password = admin
If you can't login using this credentials then you will have to reset the router

If you logged in . Then click on Wireless > security

On this screen you can see the wireless key
If the security mode is WEP then your password is Key1
If the security mode is WPA-PSK then your password is Preshared key

Thanks

I forgot my securiy code phone?


is it phone password or router password. do you mean wep or wpa passwork? you can access these security key by accessing your GUI in you router. just open your internet browser and type in in the url 192.168.1.1 for "linksys" router or 192.168.0.1 for other router. then go wireless and wireless security. you can find there if your are using wep or wpa access key.
In case that you dont know the password of your router. reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

Forgot my wep key for my sony playstaion 3


Hi,
If you need to find your WEP key that you setup when you configured your network, you would need to first log into the router itself using the proper username and password. Look in the Security section of the router's interface to find your key.
or...
Your WEP key is usually created by you or whoever set it up. If you forgot it you might want to try E-mailing the company to get a replacement.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Were would i find the wep key or the wpa for the WUSB54GSC Wireless -G USB Network Adapter/


The Wep Key is located in the wireless router settings and will not be found on the network adapter. The network adapter needs the wep or wpa key to connect to the wireless router. You will need to use a computer hooked up directly to the router and enter the router settings menu to find or change the wep or wpa key. Most routers use 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to enter the router menu. When you input the IP address above a screen should come up asking for a username and password. Enter those and that will allow you to get into the router menu. If you do not know the username and password you can reset the router with the reset button and that will restore the default password which is usually no username and password is admin.

Where is the wep key on the router


Attach a laptop or PC directly to the Router and open your web browser. Then type http://192.168.1.1 and you will be taken to a web page. The web information is usually under the security tab or under wireless. When you enable WEP it will ask you for a pass phrase, under that you will see three unique keys. Any of these will work as a WEP key.

The default username, password on the Linksys I think is Admin:admin if you have not changed it. You can also reset the router to get the default password back if you forgot it.

Need to find existing WEP ID, do not want to reset my WEP ID


Flip over your ACTIONTEC and you would see there the default wep key. If you've had it personalized before, you have to open the configuration page of your modem and check for the wep key.

To go to the configuration page, open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. that is the default address for your actiontec. type in your username and password when prompted. the usual default it ADMIN for username and PASSWORD (lowercase) for password. or you could also try ADMIN (uname)-ADMIN(pword).

click on the wireless settings icon and then click on basic security settings. scroll down on the middle of the page and you will see there your wep key.

if you are unable to open the configuration page because you forgot your username and password, you can reset your modem so that it the uname and password will go back to its factory default settings (admin/password). However, if you are using pppoe connection (authentication using username and password to connect to network) you can lose your connection and you would have to configure your router. so be careful not to press the reset button at the back.

Forgot network password


Hello...if you need to retrieve your network key, eg to connect a new laptop to the internet, this can be found within your router settings.

Here's a rough guide:

1. Type your router IP address, eg http://192.168.1.1 or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser address bar

2. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. The defaults for Linksys are username: (left blank) and password: admin : but if you have set a router password/username, please enter these.

3. In the router user interface, go to the section headed Wireless Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around a little. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be somewhere here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK, network key, WPA shared key, passphrase etc – but that’s the one you need.

For more details, you could pick up a manual from the Linksys site or view the help pages; otherwise, please come back to Fixya with your model number, and let us know how we can help. Good luck
