new computer

I am trying to get acces to the internet on a new computer. It recognises the existence of my plus net wireless signal but asks for a network security key. I ve never been asked this on my other computer and wonder what I need to do to get access with my second computer.

Re: new computer

Assuming you're using a PlusNet supplied router and you haven't changed the security key from the default then check the instructions here

Section 3 Connecting to your computer.
Hope that helps

Re: new computer

Specifically:
"Use the WPA-PSK key shown on the bottom of the router. It's 10 characters long and the letters are CAPITALISED."
You may not remeber doing this when you set up your original computer but you must have done if it connects wirelessly.
