Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Linksys Model # XXXXX v1
Network Technician: Ansh P., Network Administrator replied 8 years ago

You can do this:


Use an ethernet wire to connect the router to the computer or if its already connected using wireless you can directly follow these steps:

Open Internet Explorer >

Type http://192.168.1.1 in Address bar >

Hit Enter >

Login page for Router will open >

Leave the user name blank. And use admin for password. If that fails, type admin for both username and password >

Hit Enter >

Click on the wireless tab >
Click on the "Wireless Security" tab >
In this page you can setup a WEP password XXXXX save it and restart the router >

This will be your new key.

 

Let me know, how it goes. If that does not works, ask me for more help.

Download this free tool from here to this computer(which is connected to the router) : http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wirelesskeyview.zip

Open it and double click on the WirelessKeyView.exe file

 

It will list you the network key of your router.

 

Hope this helps, else let me know.
