Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Are you looking for your wi-fi / wireless password ***** code / key?

What's the brand / model of your internet modem / router device?

Do you see any password ***** key / passphrase / WPA / WEP at the back / bottom of the modem / router device? (It is case-sensitive.)

If needed, can you please check at the back / bottom of your laptop for for the exact brand and model of it?

If needed, do you have another working laptop / wireless computer that is currently connected via wireless? If so, does it have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, 10, or Mac?

Please reply at the box below to continue. Thank you,

My laptop is running fine, but you have not told me the wireless or the security code should the problem arise again.
Other wise I am very happy.

I'm sorry. Did you see my questions in last reply? Please try the following:

Solution #1:

- Please check at the back / bottom of your internet modem / router device(s) for any password ***** key / passphrase / WPA / WEP. If yes, that is your wireless / security code. It is case-sensitive.

Solution #2:

- If that does not work, please do the following:

  1. Press at the same time the two keys Windows and R on the laptop's keyboard, then type control then click OK. Then the Control Panel window will open.
  2. Then open Network and Internet / Network and Sharing Center.
  3. Then click on your wireless network name on the right of Connections item.
  4. Then click on Wireless Properties.
  5. Then click on the Security tab.
  6. Then select the box at Show characters.
  7. Then you will see the Network security key above it, that is your wireless / security code password. It is case-sensitive.

- If there is still any issue, please let me know if you are stuck at any step, and let me know the the brand / model of your internet modem / router device.

After Wireless Properties, do you see the word Security at the top? If yes, please continue the steps.

The Internet modem / router device was usually given to you previously from your internet service provider. Thank you.
