Re: what is my network security key

Hi,

 

Only you know what is it. You have to logon to your access point (AP) to find out OR you can setup a new one using this:

 

  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows-vista/Set-up-a-security-key-for-a-wireless-network

 

Note: You must know the old one or you can reset the whole thing like a brand new router by press the RESET pin. What is it ?

 

Regards.

Re: what is my network security key

I am entering my network security key # when asked while attempting to connect my printer to my network. However, the computer tells methat I have used the wrong security key #. I am sure I used the right #. What should I do to connect my printer to a network?

That is on your router it has the SSID and password. If you setup the router you should know the password for it. Did you use the factory password or your own? You can always reset the router but the settings you saved will be gone.

Hi,

 

It is yours, you set it up. You can throw out the box but after set it up it will stay in your router, not the box. Now, you have to set your router up yourself.

 

Note: Some ISP's may set the key for you and they MUST give you a card or a piece of paper which contanis the key. Otherwise ask them how to set it up.

 

Regards.

Hi,

 

Did you buy the router yourself or from your ISP ? If you bought it yourself, what is it ? If from your ISP them ask them
