Enter IP address
You need to enter the IP address of the router. For that, open any Web browser. In that, enter IP address '192.168.254.254', '192.168.1.1' or '192.168.15.1'. You may also use the router manual or the manufacturer's website to find the correct IP address. The IP address could also be obtained by using the ping command.
Login as administrator
You need to login as administrator to find the network key. The administrator password is the default username and password, if you have not changed it. You need to click on 'wireless network information', which includes the network key. The network key will be displayed on the screen. You can note the network key and use it when needed.
If the router is not displaying the key, then you need to create a new one. You need to click on 'Save settings'. Most probably, the button will be on the bottom of the page. After that, you need to unplug your router's power cord. After unplugging, you need to retain it for 10 seconds. Then plug in the router again. This way, the settings can be saved in the router.
