Hi there,
Do you mean the key that you use when logging into the router?
Or the key for logging into your wireless?

If it's for your wireless, then please read this:
You'll need to log into the router and set the password XXXXX
Please type http://192.168.1.1 into your browser.
You'll be prompted for a user and password. Try:
Username: admin
Password: password (or try leaving it blank)

After you have logged in, change to the wireless settings page. You'll be able to enter a new password XXXXX

If you need anything further please let me know and I'll be glad to help.

I went to the web site but could not log in. It rejected the username admiin with a blank password.

I have no idea what username and password XXXXX used when the system was set up.

 

I tried all the usernames and passwords I use and none would work. What else can I try?

Expert:  Engineer-Thomas replied 2 years ago.
Hi there,

Did you try the password:
password
You could also try the password:
admin

If neither of those work, you will need to factory reset the router. There'll be a reset button on the back, but it will erase on your settings, so we need to copy those down first. Can you provide the model of the router?

I found out that I am to connect to a cisco router model M10. Not the belkin router we have.

 

I used the suggested usernames and passwords but stil could not access. For Cisco do I need to go to a different web site?

Sorry for wasting your time with the belkin questions.

NEW INFO when I went to cisco connect I found out I needed to download several updates. It also listed my username and password.

I was able to get my Kindle and Nintendo 3DS connected to my Cisco Valet network along with my PC and printer.

 

Thanks for your suggestions. Although they did not directly solve my problem, you gave me suggestions that lead me to solving the rest of the setup myself. This is even better than giving me the steps to follow. I learned a lot more and also now know how to connect other devices to my wireless net work.

 

Thanks
