You can reset you router to it's factory default settings:
Have you somehow lost your D-Link router's password? Perhaps the easiest way to gain access to your router's admin interface is by restoring it to the default factory settings, however, if that is not possible, try method number two via the master password. If you lost your WEP password, visit this post for more info - Recover Lost WEP Wireless Network Password Key.
hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!
Best is to reset the router (see http://www.fixya.com/support/r7947146-reset_belkin_router). You will lose all the settings you have (you can get them again from your ISP if you need to). Alternatively can try to find the wep code this way: http://lifehacker.com/#!5305094/how-to-crack-a-wi+fi-networks-wep-password-with-backtrack but that won't solve the missing router password.
Open the device page, navigate to security settings and the WEP key info should be in there, if it is asterisked out, simply set security to no wep no wpa and save the info. then if you want generate a new wep key
Connect your computer to the router with an ethernet cable.
Type 192.168.1.1 in the browser and then return.
Then type in the router's gatekeeper codes. Unless they have been changed they are admin and password.
Then when you have passed the gatekeeper, look down the left hand side for the wireless setting tab. Click on it.
When the page opens scroll down to the security section AND THERE IS YOUR WEP KEY. Generally it's the first of the four. Normally it will have the bullet marking it.
Your WEP key is only used by the wireless side, It is not used to access the settings of the router.
To secure your network you basically just need to put a WEP, WPA, WPA2 key on the connection, which prevents unauthenticated users to connect without knowing the code.
You just need to access the router as the Admin user and go to security settings. Then just select to use one of the security protocols(WEP,WPA,WPA2).
You do not specify to what router you are using, so i cannot give you a link for the manual until you give me the make and model no. of the router. Mail me with the info and i will find the manual for you.
Hey you will not be able to locate the WEP key on any computer. If you have the information saved on the document then you can find that document. otherwise you will not be able to find it on any computer. This information is saved on the router interface. you will need to open the set up interface of the router. Click Here for more info about how to find the network key ?
The WEP code is whatever you make it when you set up the wireless connection. If you have lost this key. It is best to use the manual reset located on your wireless router. Will require a small point like a paperclip. Then you will have to access the router and set up the wireless internet over again. Then you can secure it with a new WEP key. If you need further assistance please ask me. Thanks, Lee
