Specs: Windows 10, 4 gb
I turned On Wi-Fi in settings. Clicked show available networks link. I clicked one of strong signal networks. I was asked to type network security key (NSK). I typed in alphanumeric NSK, but got a message that said "I've typed INCORRECT NSK, type in CORRECT NSK". So I typed in alphabetic NSK, got same message.

How can I know correct NSK?

The wifi access-key is usually a mix of numbers and letters; can be upper/lower-case for the letters.

Be sure you are observing correct case senses for letters; and also that you're not mistaking a capital O for a zero and visa-versa.

The correct "key" is frequently found on a sticker on the base or rear of the router - in the correct form. Also usually provided on a card, or inside the idiot's guide (user-manual) as well.

You cannot just select someone else's network to log onto, you have to log onto your own network or a public network like one in a library. One in a coffee shop or restaurant may have a password but they will post it if there is one.
As mentioned, if you have your own Wifi router (or one from your cable company, etc.), the key will be on the label or in the manual though it is generally recommended to change the name of the network and the log in key (see manual).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Is it mandatory to have a router w/Wi-Fi? I don't have Wi-Fi on my router. Is there any way to connect to Wi-Fi network?

Yes. You need a WiFi router to be able to use WiFi. Note that in many countries it is a criminal offence to try to access a WiFi connection that you are not authorised to. I'd advise you to stop trying to guess passwords for random WiFi networks.

Public, free wifi is often available in many shopping centres etc., and coffee shops, railway stations and so on. To use those you have to provide an email address, which might mean you get loads of junk mail later. If you go that route, use an “imaginary” email address, and not your own genuine one.

But for home use, buy a wifi router, or ask your isp to provide one?
