    How do I find a WPA key?

    I am trying to set up my son's PSP so he can go online.

    We have got through most of the stages, located the routed etc but the PSP is asking for the WPA key and I have no idea where to find it or what it is - it was put in automatically when I configured the router yesterday. I have googled for ages but still none the wiser

    Please bear in mind I am not technically minded so be gentle with me

    Ohh I never thought of that - will check it now

    Thanks Sassie

    Is it on the router?

    What router do you have. Not sure if this makes any difference, but may be of help to someone trying to guide you.

    They usually put it on a sticker on the router

    bt router have a cash card thing with the key on it

    which router have you got?

    if its a netgear router, using your computer in your internet address bar type 192.168.0.1

    username: admin

    password: password

    when logged in look on the left menu and click wireless settings.

    scroll down for your key

    when i say on the box,sorry i meant the router, mine is called a livebox, sorry about that, but code also on enveleope disc came in

    How was it put in automatically? I thought you had to choose your own password or use the one that comes with it, like sassie put its sometimes on the router's box

    I only got it yesterday so the box was in the recycling bag

    WPA is under the box of most models I believe, it may just say wireless key, but it's there.
