I will try to help on your question
Do you need to recover security key for your router?
my router no, is WRT160N
Ok. Do this
Start your web browser and type:
and press enter
i am on another computer so will have to go and try this on the other one, just a min
you have to do that on computer already connected
to the router
yes,it is on the router but not the internet, it brought a page up , it says no matchs found
Did you connect it by wire?
do you have any other that is connected to the router and has internet access?
yes, the one i am talking to you on
can you do above on that computer.
just in address bar type:
i tried to type that in the address bar, and it wouldn't do anything on the other computer
Did you get the page asking for username and password?
It doesn't need to do anything on other computer
you have to access router to retreive your security key
Are you there?
yes, does it want my password XXXXX i always use and my name i always use for my account,,,,,what password XXXXX it want
leave user name blank, and enter admin as a password
and click ok.
Then click on Wireless and then Wireless security
There you will be able to see your security key
Did you open Wireless security tab?
yes,we are tying to put it into the computer, that is a long no?
that no did n ot work
Please tell me what is
choosen under "Security Mode"?
On the page you are already.
You are not reading the key from right place, and if you write here your "Security Mode" in the Wireless Security tab I can help you
can you answer the above question?
in the security mode it is WPA personal
Ok. Your security key is written under "Shared Key"
Exactly "WPA Shared Key"
where is the shared key located?
Do you read what I write to you.
On the Wireless -> Wireless Security
in the Linksys configuration page
that you enter on 192.168.1.1
yes, there are several things under there
there is written "WPA Shared Key"
and there is your key
just read it
What do you have there?
Write here all that you got
and I will tell you what is your key
there is Wep wpa2 PERSONAL WPA ENTERPRISES RADIUS DISABLED WPA2 ENTERPRISED
Choose WPA2 Personal
What do you have next?
AN ENCRIPTION CAME UP
TKIP OR AES
ok choose TKIP+AES
What is next?
OKEY do u want me to click save changes
Do you have anymore to enter
Do you have Shared Key to enter?
yes on the laptop but ther seprerated
it seems that we have communication problems
I will have to opt-out as this seemed impossible to solve this way. Thank you
nothing worked on the laptop that you suggested,,,, under my security type,,,,,it was WPA PERSONAL,,,,, MY ENCRYTION TYPE WAS AES, AND THERE IS NO SECURITY KEY, the other that they gave me didn't work
i am not that good at this kind of computer stuff so you will have to be patient with me
ON THAT PAGE WHERE YOU GET WPA PERSONAL, AND AES, BELLOW YOU HAVE SHARED KEY TEXT BOX AND THERE IS YOUR PASSWORD XXXXX YOU CAN CHANGE IT TO SOMETHING ELSE IF YOU WANT.
i thied to type some other passwords in there but nothing worked
password XXXXX be at lease 8 characters
after you enter something as password
you have to save
or click ok
on that page to save your new password XXXXX the router.
i tried that and they said that it wasn't anygood, that i have to go to my internet provider or network admistrator
is the security key the same as what is on the router?
You can set for security key whatever you want
then when you try to connect from other computer you will be asked to enter that security key
that you set on router
You can also Disable the security key and it will not ask for security key, but everyone will be able to connect
if key is not set
you mean in that security key question box i can put in a new password XXXXX it should work?
well i am having all kinds of trouble and no words will work for my security key, so will have to have someone else try this for me,,,,,,,,,,,,, since it is not resolved will my credit card still be charged?
do you have a phone no, to call you at?
No. No,you are not charged.
