    I have 2 computers, one of them is a desktop that is connected to my linksys router via ethernet, the router is connected to the line and has wireless on it, I can connect to the internet from my desktop, but my laptop through wireless says type in key authentication.

    My question is: How do I find out the network key using the desktop?

    Thanks

    I typed in 192.168.1.1 but the router settings page will never load :hs:

    I don't know why?

    I just need it to generate a network key so I can connect from my other computer

    Reset the router by holding in the button on the back for 20 seconds. Then restart the wired computer and point your browser to 192.168.1.1. Log in using no user name and a password of "admin". You could also try a different browser.

    your wireless has preset WEP (easily haxorable) or WPA2 on it.

    RTFM on how to reset the router to default, set WPA2 password and router admin password and rock on dude.

    WEP takes like about 2 hrs or less if you are leeching to the wireless pc to break, wpa2 no point in trying to hack it. the weakness of WPA2 is using a short password. I usually use a full sentence password that only makes sense to me.

    there's a forum for cable/dsl i forget its name like dsl reports or something google it they got all your infoz for your router
