OneCare_2572 password needed to complete connection RRS feed

  • Question

  • Help!! Lady in Distress

     

    My network connection is looking for a password that I threw away months ago ....go ahead and snicker....It says that I'm connected to my boyfriend's computer through OneCare_2572 and it shows a straightup strength signal (better not snicker). However, it's requires a password in order to complete the connection.

    Boyfriend is braindead about computer issues...(I'll snicker with you on this one)

    Any help out there?

    1. On the computer that you used to help secure the wireless network, click Change Settings.
    2. On Firewall tab, click Advanced settings.
    3. On the Network connections tab, click your wireless network, and then click Details.
    4. The SSID and network key appear in the Security Information area.

  • Without knowing how your computer is configured to connect to the internet I'll guess you are sharing an internet connection through his computer. If this is correct the password you need is the password to his computer to complete the connection.

  • I moved your post to the WiFi Security topic since I'm assuming that the OneCare_2572 might be the wireless network that OneCare configured for you.

    How is your computer connected to the Internet?

    What is the exact message presented when you are seeing this password prompt?

  • Hello Jared, if "Details" is grayed out the most likely reason is that your wireless connection was secured before One Care was installed. You can view your key on the router setup page.

  • That will depend on your router. Your router documentation will explain what IP address you need to enter in the web browser and also what the login name and password are for the administration pages.
