Your Internet password is the password that you need to enter while trying to access the Web. Often known as "Wired Equivalent Privacy" or simply "WEP," you will need administrative rights to find your Internet password. The password keeps away unauthorized users from accessing your networking connection. You can access the password by going to your router's setup page, or it may be on the router itself. Note that these instructions may differ slightly for one router to another.
Things You'll Need
- Pen and paper
Open your preferred Web browser. Type the IP (Internet Protocol) address of your router on the address bar and hit "Enter" key. The default IP address for a Linksys router is 192.168.1.1. The default IP address for Netgear and D-Link routers is 192.168.0.1.
Type your router username and password when prompted. You chose these credentials when you set up your router for the first time. Note that this password is different from your WEP password, which you are trying to find.
Click "Network Security" or "Wireless Security" depending on your router.
Locate the WEP password at the bottom. Write it down on a piece of paper for future reference.
