 How can I find the network security encryption key for my Verizon MI424WR wireless network? Your network's current network security encryption key (WPA2, WPA, or WEP) is stored in your Verizon MI4242WR router. As long as you know your router's user name and password, you can access the security settings where the network encryption key is stored.

Note: The Verizon MI424WR security screens and prompts may vary slightly from the directions below, depending on when you purchased your router and the version of the firmware loaded on it.

To display your Verizon MI424WR network's security encryption key:

  1. Open your Web browser and enter in the Address field.

  1. Enter your user name. If you didn't change it when you configured your network, the default user name is admin.

  2. Enter your password.
    • Note: If you didn't change the default password when you set up your router, it may have been changed to your router's serial number to provide greater security. You can find your router's serial number on a label affixed to the bottom or back of your router.
    • Note: If you've forgotten your user name or password, you must reset your router to the factory defaults to access the configuration screen.
  3. Click the Wireless Settings icon. [Show Me]

  4. Click Wireless Status in the left navigation panel.

  5. Look for the Security enabled section of the Wireless Status screen.

  6. Your encryption key is displayed next to the type of encryption you are using. For example, if you're using WEP, the encryption key will display in the WEP 64-bit or WEP 8021.x field. If you're using WPA2 or WPA encryption, your encryption key is displayed in the WPA2 or WPA field.

  7. Write down you network encryption key and keep it in a safe place for future reference.

  8. Close the router configuration window.
