How do i find my wep key or wpa key


Network security key
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 andEncryption key.
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

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, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings.

Cant conect to internet


  • Wii Error Code 51300 - 51399
  • This error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point.

    To solve this error : 

    Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

    If your router is using WEP encryption
  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.

    If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with : 
    WPA - PSK(TKIP)
    WPA - PSK(AES)
    WPA2 - PSK(AES)

    If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings

Wireless network is not connecting


There is not a lot of information to work with here. First of all, the computer is a desktop. Do you have a PCI or USB wireless card installed? You need a wireless network adapter in order to access your wireless.

Next, do you have a wireless router? If not, you need one to provide something for the wireless clients to connect to. If you do, you need to take note of the SSID, or wireless network name. This is the name that the Compaq desktop will be connecting to (with it's wireless network adapter.

In regards to the router, did you setup WEP or WPA wireless encryption? If so, Windows will ask for the key or passphrase to connect to your network and must be typed in identically to how it was setup in your router.

Something else to consider, if you do use WPA for encryption, some older wireless cards do NOT support it and if you insist on using encryption, use WEP.

Hope this helps!

Cant log onto ineternet with my pc. It has a Airnet Wireless adapter c


It is possible that the encryption the router is using is not one supported by your wireless card or OS. Older 802.11 cards do not support WPA and Vista Systems will not connect to WEP.

See if you can get the owner to disable wireless security for troubleshooting, and see if you connect UNsecure. If you can connect with security disabled, then it is time to look at what security your wireless supports and ensure that other wireless restrictions on the router are not blocking the connection (Limits on IP addresses, MAC address filtering etc)

I have a Belkin FSD9230-4 wireless router, it says it is unsecured when I go on using my laptop. How do I secure the wireless connection?


You will have to login to the router's web utility, go to wireless security settings, and choose either WEP, or WPA. After selecting one of the two you will need to select a passphrase which you will need the next time you connect. I suggest WPA personal, because it offers a stronger encryption method than wep, making it more secure.

Connecting ps3 to orange livebox keeps giving me error code 8013013E ?


SSID and Security settings need to match in order to connect.

Try matched SSID with WEP/WPA disabled first.

If that works, then you can move forward toward enabling WEP/WPA as you wish...

I will give you something to try, but with out more info, (type and model of router, and operating system) it might not work.
When you set up your network (home network wizard) you should have seen an option for WEP (wired equivalent privacy) or WPA (wi-fi protected access), your internet service provider should have supplied you with an encryption key to enter there. (if not ask them for one) you will have to re-setup your network to install this number key. WPA is the better of the two but most older network products do not support it so you might be stuck with WEP.
Note: you will also have to set the WEP/WPA encryption number on your laptop (any wireless device) to access your network.
Hope this helps, if not let me know with the other info i requested above!
