Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Dah-need help where do I find the "key" I have my wireless but don"t know what they want when asking for the "key"
If you have a pc that is plugged into the router or can plug the laptop into the router for a few minutes, you can login to find the key. If it is a verizon router there will be a sticker on the bottom that will say WEP: and that will be the key. I would need MFG/model of router to provide detailed steps.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
