    I can't find me WEP Key for Dynex. I need it to connect to internet on my DS and I know it's the same as a Network Key. But when I put my Network key in my Nintendo DS it keeps saying that it's invalid. It's really fustrating me. I'm also on Manual Set up.

    WEP and WPA are security keys that you or whomever set up the router initually. If you have the password to the rouer or it is still set for the default password, you can go to the router's web setup page and see or reset the WEP/WPA.

I have a compaq presario r4000 will no longer connect to wireless after installing a netgear router


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryptionkey.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

I forget my pass code


Go onto your router's wireless configuration to get the Passphrase.
The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

I dont know the wep key.So I cant connect to my printer Is there a charge to download driver updates?


Usually, device drivers are available free of cost on the manufacturer's website. So you should check out for drivers of your printer on its manufacturer's support website. Second, if you have forgotten the WEP key for your wireless modem/router, you can get it by going to the wireless settings on your router page. You can contact your modem/router vendor for free assistance on this. If you still fail to get the WEP key and don't mind using your printer through a cable, you can always use a USB connection to connect your printer to your computer.

I have just purchased a new computer and am trying to connect it to an existing Lynksys wireless network. To do so it asks for a WEP key or WPA key. Where do I find this?


Yes, I've also had some problems with Linksys. You need to configure the properties of your wireless network so that it automatically obtains the IP and DNS info. Go to your network connections, right click on your wireless network, go to properties, go to Internet Protocol Version 4, click Properties, and select the "automatically obtain" options.

This should fix your problem. However, it may not. The problem can be something else. But you do not need a WEP key or anything. I just talked to a representative from the company a few days ago and they said that you must always select the automatically obtain choices. If this doesn't work, I recommend calling Linksys. They will be able to help you and they are your best option.
Also, remember that if your computer is not recognizing the network, always try resetting your modem and restarting your computer.

I dont know how to change the SSID Name and WEP Key.


You have to change it in the printer settings, not in the router! Otherwise you'll lose connectivity in all the other computers that use this router.
The SSID is the name you gave to your wireless network, and the WEP key is the password you set for your wireless connection.

How do I find the WEP Code for my Wireless G Dynex?


The wep key is setup on the wireless router, not the adapter. If you do not have the login information for the router, then the easiest thing to do is reset the router to default settings (this removes any existing keys) and then configure it with a new key. If you reset the router, you will need to connect to the router with a network cable to reconfigure it.

Wep key


Use a computer that is currently connected to the router. Open Internet Explorer and go to http://192.168.2.1 It will ask you for a user name and password that you created during set up. The password is blank by default. You are then logged into the router and can view or change the WEP key, or any other settings for the router.
