  1. Things to check
    Have you connected to the correct router? In some areas there can be a multitude of routers overlapping each other for coverage.
    Are you sure you have entered the key correctly? Depending on the type of key these can be case sensitive. Also, some systems take a password in the place of a passkey.
  2. It also depends on what type of password protection you had on the network.

    You may have to reset the router in order to log back into it.
