network key?

  ricky J 10:36 14 May 2007

I have a laptop and a belkin wireless network. I want to another laptop but my network is security enabled to block 3rd party access. Will i need my network key to access my network with my second computer and how do i find it (belkin set the router up on the phone!!)

Can you log into the belkin router by typing 192 .168 . 2 . 1 (no spaces) into Internet Explorer. The password might be blank or it might be admin or password, if not you'll have to hardware reset it. If you do get in then you can find the wireless password in there. If not, and you have to hardware reset it, make sure you can set it up again or have someone to do that, and all the account info etc.

Remember to write it down because you will need to enter it in the other laptop to log on

I have a Speedtouch 576 Router and I need to connect a new PC to our wireless network but we've mislaid our WEP key. I tried doing the above but whenever i type this all I get is a google page listing.

Please help before I tear my hair out LOL.
