I need the security code to set up Airport Extremem with the DirecTV wireless cinema connection kit. It recognizes my network name buit asks for a security code. My password does not work and I have nio idea where to locate this security code.

Apple TV, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1)

    DirectTV needs to connect to a network with a simple name.


    If your network name is something like


    hawghead's big apple wireless network


    DirecTV will never connect.


    The name of the network needs to be short.....10-20 characters at most

    No special characters (like an apostrophe) are allowed in the name

    No blank spaces in the name


    Use the same rules for the wireless network password

    thanks. I did that and it worked. Oddly it kept recognizing my previous network name but would not accept the password which I did not change.
