Network Security Key

I am trying to set up someone wireless, but it keeps asking for a Network Security Key.  I have gone to my computer trying to find this key, I think I have found it but it doesn't give me the actual password.  How do I find out what I made as a password, so that I can access this from my friends computer?

Network Security Key

Hi,

 

You will need to access your Routers homepage from your PC and look under Security to see what the network security key is.  If you cannot view the actual key ( ie it just shows as a series of ******** ) you may need to set a new security key in your router and then enter this new key in your friends PC as well as your own PC to connect to your Home Network.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Best wishes,

 

DP-K

thanks tek I am all right brained and have not the capacity (or interest) to learn more tech language than I need to use my machines to be creative. I can see how the language is imortant but I am with Steve Jobs, simple gracefull.

Its like listening to baseball stats; not the joy of the game

Network Security Key

On my wireless router, the network sec key is written on the router itself. It a 10 digit number. Unless someone has changed it to some hidden (10 digit) other number. Then, you're SOL!

I just got a new HP laptop and the first thing it is asking me is the security key. Where can I find that with my Xfinity-comcast internet?
