When i choose an eircom wireless network It asks for a key code. I had to buy a new modem/router to receive signal.


This is the security key - that you must have put in when it was set up for the first time. If you weren't the one that did that and you don't know it then just reset the wireless router (press a small button at the rear, next to the antenna) and it will remove the password - but you will have to configure it again.

Can't find my password to connect my new ipad to my Belkin network. What can I do?


I'm assuming you are referring to the pass phrase or key on the router. Originally setup when you added security to your home wlan. Find the manual online for the Belkin router and reset it to factory defaults. Then set it up again with a pass phrase you can remember.

What does it mean by network security key


The name 'network security key' is itself self-explanatory. Every network has a security key and you will need this key to be a part of that network. Just as is the case of any other term that comes from the field of network engineering, there are a lot more details attached to this term, too. So, let us try to understand all the aspects related to network security key

An explanation as to why we need a wireless network security key is not even required. Still, if any one is skeptical about adding any complexity to their available wireless network, just think about it. Your wireless network range can be detected by any other computer with a wireless setup and that comes within the range of the network. So, without you knowing, it's very easy for any user to get connected to your wireless network and gain access to all the data that you intend to share only with those computers with which you have setup your wireless network. So, what is a wireless network security key and how is it useful in such situations?

Well, a network security key or passphrase is something like a password, which any user who wants to connect to your computer will require. But, I think that before we go into the details of figuring out, how to get network security key for wireless computer, we should take a look at the different methods of securing your wireless network

I dont know my wpa key to get online


Use an Ethernet cable between the network-port on your computer and one of the LAN ports on your wireless router.

Start Internet Explorer.
Connect to the web-server "inside" the router.
Run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", to establish an SSID, choose an encryption-level (use 'WPA'), and to establish a password/pass-phrase/network-key.

Use the SSID and the password to connect to your newly-configured wireless network.

I,m trying to install netgear,so i can go wireless ,and when it asks for my network key ?i dont know it


you make it up yourself, for example choose wpa and then type in a phrase which will generate a key which you make note of, then type in your pc's to connect to the net, or you choose not to secure the network, therefore no need for a network key.

Can't remember security phrase for netopia 3347 nwg to add another computer


Are you talking about your wireless pass key, if nessesary connect a PC directly to your Netopia and reset the pass phrase through the routers control panel/gui, remember you will need to reset all pc conections to the new phrase. If you haven't made any IP changes to the netopia, the default settings are likely to be 192.168.1.254, just use your explorer to browse to this address

I have been using my Linksys router to connect my home PC's, its been working great, then I bought a laptop and tried connecting to my network but my network key (pass phrase)doesnt work, im sure it is...


Since you are confident that the key is correct, make sure your security and encryption types on your laptop match what is set up on the router. For instance, if you the router is set up for WPA with TKIP encryption, the laptop must be set up for the same.

I would connect it through ethernet cable to router and go into router settings in one window and the laptop's settings in another window just to make it easier to match the two up.
