Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

I dont know the wifi password -windows 7 of my broadband


When you power up the wireless router and the LEDs are ON then the router appears to be OK and this also applies to the DSL or cable wireless modem. To check if the modem is configured to your ISP settings and the modem connects to the Internet, connect the modem with a LAN cable to your laptop and check if you can get into the Internet. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router. To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1, Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

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.

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.

Can not connect laptop to wireless router computer is asking for Security key or password I will not accept password where would security key be found


The security key is defined in the router configuration. If it is your router, you can enter in the router configuration and, depending on the security mode you select, you can choose your own password.

Of course, if you already defined your password, make sure you're not using other caracters then alphabetical or numerical.

HOW TO HOOK UP MY LABTOP TO THE NET WITHOOUT USING A ETHERNET CORD


Hey BARKLY54,

If you didn't have the opportunity to write down your wireless security passkey/phrase previously, you should still be able to obtain it by accessing your wireless router's main menu. This is normally done by visiting one of the following websites from a computer that is already connected to the wireless network, or is hard-wired into the router itself:

192.168.0.1
or
192.168.1.1

Please keep in mind that the default address you'll need to visit may vary depending on your router model, so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information.

Once you've gotten to this page, you should be prompted to provide a user name and password to access the router's main menu. This default user name and password are generally provided in the owner's manual as well (or in documentation given to you by your ISP if you had that company set up your network), unless you have made any changes to these in the past.

After you’ve signed in, you should be able to find your wireless network passkey/phrase under an option named something similar to “Wireless Settings” or “Wireless Security.”

It is important to remember however, that any changes made while in the router’s main menu (intentional or accidental) can have a direct impact on every device currently connected to the wireless network. If you’re not sure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest contacting your ISP or local technical support agent for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Need to get a wireless password


If you have a router without a password, users connected to the router can change your settings. I recommend enabling WPA security with a pass phrase and a password on the router. You might consider changing the name of the admin account to something else too.
