On a computer wired to your router.

1. Open an internet explorer browser.
2. Click on the address bar and type in 192.168.1.1
3. It should ask you for a password. Leave the username empty under password type in admin
4. If that does not work try a password that you would normally use as you might have changed it.
5. Inside the page. Go to the wireless tab. Under the word wireless you will see basic wireless to the right is wireless security. Click on wireless security.
6. Under wireless security you can see your WEP key.


I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply and i would be happy to assist. Thanks.

I forgot my wep key and router username/password


Use first the default username and password according to your router's manual. If it doesn't work reset the router. Look for the reset pin hole on the back of the router. Press and hold it down for 1 seconds.
After that use the default username and password for sure this time it will work. As soon as you are able to access the configuration page of your router please setup a new WEP key to keep you network secured.

I forgot my securiy code phone?


is it phone password or router password. do you mean wep or wpa passwork? you can access these security key by accessing your GUI in you router. just open your internet browser and type in in the url 192.168.1.1 for "linksys" router or 192.168.0.1 for other router. then go wireless and wireless security. you can find there if your are using wep or wpa access key.
In case that you dont know the password of your router. reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

If you forgot WEP key for your router you just need to log into the router and look up the key. If you do not know the Admin password for your router then you will have to do a hard reset of the router.

The links below are examples of what steps you woudl need to go through to look up the WEP info on your router.

Where is the wep key on the router


Attach a laptop or PC directly to the Router and open your web browser. Then type http://192.168.1.1 and you will be taken to a web page. The web information is usually under the security tab or under wireless. When you enable WEP it will ask you for a pass phrase, under that you will see three unique keys. Any of these will work as a WEP key.

The default username, password on the Linksys I think is Admin:admin if you have not changed it. You can also reset the router to get the default password back if you forgot it.

Wep password


If you forgot the WEP of your wireless network, but you think you left the admin password the default, then you can access the router's configuration utility by opening a web browser to http://192.168.0.1 (or 192.168.1.1, depending on your network) and entering the default admin password. You can then go to the wireless security area and enter a new WEP and this time, write it down! :-)

Hope this helps!
