How to setup WEP on a Belkin N1 Wireless Router F5D8231-4 v5000
1. Log into the router. To do this you will need to open your web browser and enter http://192.168.2.1

2. Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.
3. Next you will click on the Wireless heading then Security in the left hand column.
4. Select “128-bit WEP” or “64-bit WEP” from the drop-down menu.
5. Next you can enter your WEP key manually by typing in the hex values in the space provided, or you can type a passphrase in the “PassPhrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP key from the passphrase. Click “Apply Changes” to finish.
Note a hexadecimal key is a mixture of numbers and letters from A–F and 0–9. 64-bit keys are 10 digits long and can be divided into five two-digit numbers. 128-bit keys are 26 digits long and can be divided into 13 two-digit numbers.
At this point you should have your WEP setup. When you connect your computer to the wireless router you will be prompt for the WEP key you just set up.
