  1. Find or Change Your Internet Security Passphrase


    1)Open the web browser that you use: Firefox,Google Chrome,IE,or Opera and type in the IP address for your router,and press the Enter key.
    http://www.routeripaddress.com/ < Router ip addresses can be found here

    2)A window will open and then type in your routers default username and password,and press the Enter key again

    http://www.routerpasswords.com/ < Router usernames and passwords found here
    ***** Username and Password may also be located on the side or bottom of your router *****

    3)Navigate to the Wireless Security\Network Security Settings Tab and open to locate or change your WEP or WPA Security Passphrase.
    Use WPA because it provides better security.

    4)Write this Security Passphrase down and put it in a safe place to access when needed.

    5)Save settings and close your browser.

  2. And turn off WPS if applicable
  3. This should do it. Press start, search for network, right click on network, click properties, click on your network name example : optus3414, click on that than there should be a tab that will say " security " press that than theres a box that says " show characters " press the box and that there should be your security code above. hope this helps ;)
