    I need to add another computer to my network that has a "network key" but i
    can't figure out what that network key is, because it's encrypted...

    does anyone know how to do this??

    You've forgotten your WEP/WPA, is that it? Just go to the wireless
    router or wireless access point and go to its configuration settings.
    Most routers/WAP's are configured through your browser. Look at the
    wireless security settings and you'll see the encryption key you're
    using. Write it down and then you can enter the key into your
    computer's wireless network settings.

    I'm having the same problem but I'm not as computer literate so I'd have to
    be told how to get to the wireless access point and all that stuff.

    The previous posts in this thread aren't available, so since you didn't
    quote any of them, it's hard to know how to answer you. If you forgot
    your WEP/WPA key, just log into your router's configuration page
    (usually by entering its IP address in your browser) and look at the
    security settings. Copy them onto a piece of paper. If you don't know
    how to get into your router's configuration utility, look at its manual
    or post back with the make/model.
