Generate Password For Your Wireless Router With Wi-Fi Password Key Generator

Setting up a wireless modem or router in your home or office is something anyone can do, but securing it with an encryption protocol is very important, because, otherwise people within the wireless router’s range will be able to connect to your Wi-Fi network, which may lead to slower your connection as well as access to the shared files and folders on your network.

Though, there are different types of protection methods employed for securing a wireless network, WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access), or WPA2 (WPA2 is generally considered the strongest encryption method) encryption standards are generally used.

When configuring your wireless router using WEP or WPA/WPA2 protocol, you need to have entered random string of numbers and letters for password. Unlike regular passwords, these keys have strict length (25 and more) requirements based on type of security mechanism (WEP, WPA, and WPA2 etc.) you choose. Choosing such a lengthy password is a problem for most users.

To help you, there is a utility called Wi-Fi Password Key Generator that lets you easily generate required keys with a click. Just run it, select an encryption method and click generate button. Copy and paste the key into the appropriate location on your modem configuration.

Keep in mind that, whatever you choose, come up with a good way to remember the network name and key or write it down (keep it in a secure location if you do so) to make it easy to give it to employees and important clients who need Wi-Fi access.

Wi-Fi Password Key Generator is fully portable, lightweight and does not require JAVA, .NET, etc. It works on both 32 bit & 64 bit platforms starting from Windows XP to Windows 8. You can download it from here.
