These are a mixture of numbers and letters which you enter yourself because security is enabled, its not something we can give you its the code within the routers menu, it will be visible in there in the security settings.

if you are trying to connect to somebody elses connection, then without permission it is ilegal and obviously you will not be able to get the numbers for connection

To connect your computer to the Internet via a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

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.

It shows me always limited connectivity


First try to determine whether you can connect to the Internet loadTOCNode(2, 'workaround'); You should first try to determine whether you can connect to the Internet. If you can connect, the error message is obviously incorrect. If that is the case, you might want to disable the error message. To disable the error message, follow these steps.
  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type ncpa.cpl, and then press ENTER. The Network Connections dialog box opens.
  3. Double-click Local Area Connection, and then click Properties.
  4. On the General tab, click to clear the Notify me when this connection has limited or no connectivity check box.
  5. Click OK, and then click Close.

Check for other causes and solutions loadTOCNode(2, 'workaround'); If you cannot connect to the Internet, you have to find the reason. Realize that the reason may not be with your computer, but may be an issue with your Internet service provider (ISP) or with issues on the network at your work. Therefore, for some of these solutions, you might need help from your ISP, or, if your computer is part of a network at work, you may have to ask your network administrator for help. Contact your ISP service loadTOCNode(3, 'workaround'); If you use an ISP to connect to the Internet, before you go any further, first contact your ISP to see whether it is experiencing any problems. If the ISP has problems, wait until the problems are resolved before you continue to troubleshoot. Check the hardware devices loadTOCNode(3, 'workaround'); If you still cannot connect to the Internet after you have confirmation that your ISP is not experiencing any problems, manually check the hardware devices on your small office network or your home network for problems. For example, if a hub, router, modem, or access point is installed on your network, check that it is connected correctly, and that it is turned on and functioning properly. The solution might be as simple as turning on or restarting a hardware device, and then restarting your computer. For more specific troubleshooting information about the hardware devices that you are using, refer to the hardware documentation for your devices. Run the Network Diagnotics tool loadTOCNode(3, 'workaround'); If checking and restarting your hardware device did not resolve the issue, your computer may have a networking problem. For example, your computer may not have an IP address or your TCP/IP settings may be corrupted.

There are tools available in Windows XP that you can use to help you diagnose and troubleshoot networking problems. To use the Network Diagnostics tool to determine the source of the issue, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
  2. Under Pick a task, click the link to Use Tools to view your computer information and diagnose problems, and then click Network Diagnostics in the list on the left.
  3. Click Scan your system. The Network Diagnostics tool collects configuration information and performs automated troubleshooting of the network connection.
  4. When the process is complete, look for any items that are marked "FAILED" in red.

    Note If you do not see any categories that failed, please see the "Additional troubleshooting information" section for more information about how to troubleshoot network problems.
  5. Expand a category to view the testing results. For example, to check the results for TCP/IP settings, expand the Network Adapters section. Then, check whether a network adapter has failed.
  6. You can use that information to try to resolve the issue yourself, or you can provide the information to your network administrator for help. If you are not sure how to use the results from the Network Diagnostics tool to resolve the issue, see the "Next steps" section for help.

Cant conect to internet


  • Wii Error Code 51300 - 51399
  • This error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point.

    To solve this error : 

    Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

    If your router is using WEP encryption
  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.

    If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with : 
    WPA - PSK(TKIP)
    WPA - PSK(AES)
    WPA2 - PSK(AES)

    If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings

Need a network key code for the live box.


Hey ehouse1,

What XBox Live is most likely requesting from you is your Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) key to access your wireless network. Without the WPA key, your XBox will be denied internet access by your router or residential gateway.

You may generally obtain your WPA key by accessing your router/gateway from a connected computer on your home network, and by visiting the default router address through your internet browser. Please note that this default address differs from model to model, but is typically one of the two following:

http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1

Additionally, you will most likely need to have your router's user name and password handy in order to access the hardware's menu settings. Once you have access, you should be able to find your WPA key under "Security Settings" or another similarly-named option.

If you are not comfortable doing any of this or are still unsure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest contacting your internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance. Most ISP's are able to provide over-the-phone technical support and walk-throughs for their customers free of charge. In some cases, they may even be able to provide in-home networking services to help set up your Xbox.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

I will give you something to try, but with out more info, (type and model of router, and operating system) it might not work.
When you set up your network (home network wizard) you should have seen an option for WEP (wired equivalent privacy) or WPA (wi-fi protected access), your internet service provider should have supplied you with an encryption key to enter there. (if not ask them for one) you will have to re-setup your network to install this number key. WPA is the better of the two but most older network products do not support it so you might be stuck with WEP.
Note: you will also have to set the WEP/WPA encryption number on your laptop (any wireless device) to access your network.
Hope this helps, if not let me know with the other info i requested above!
