Andy Kalita :

Hello, I can help you with this. First, the security key you're referring to, is required by the wireless router you're connecting to (or trying to connect to). What is the brand/model of your router? Do you have any computers currently connected to it?

JACUSTOMER-l82vtgey- :

My router is Netgear DG834G and it is connected to this computer

Andy Kalita :

Ok, please follow these steps on this computer:

Andy Kalita :

Open new Internet Explorer window, then navigate to

Andy Kalita :

when prompted, enter "admin" for username and "password" for password (without quotation marks), then click Ok/Submit/Login

Andy Kalita :

once in, click on Wireless Settings on the left (if you're prompted to update router, click Cancel or No)

Andy Kalita :

now, on the right, note Security Options section; in there note the wireless security type you're using (WPA, WEP, etc.)

Andy Kalita :

below that, take a note of the security keys (if your security is WEP), or passphrase (if it's WPA), and write it down. That's the key you need to enter, to connect to your wireless
