The only way to see your WEP key is to remote into the router. Open a browser window, enter 192.168.1.1 in the address line and hit enter. When asked to login the default login is:
Password: (nothing - as in do not enter anything)
IF this has not been changed and you get in, click on the wireless tab and you should find your wireless key there.

SOURCE: Don't know WEP key
Type in 192.168.1.1 in a browser page. A login box will open up. You will need to put the password in . If you have not set a password, then the default is admin. Leave the user name blank.
when the Linksys setup page opens, click on wireless, then on security. you will see your WEP key there.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

I hit and hold the rest button on the back of the router for a minute and that should clear it up. I would recommend to secure it and use your own password. I bet your neighbor got into and setup so he can use. On yout wireless computer it will probably say linksys found, and enter your password on you own password.

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. Almost made a problem a bigger problem. "
1. Step 1
Open your web browser, type " http://192.168.1.1/ " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2. Step 2
Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3. Step 3
Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4. Step 4
Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5. Step 5
Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6. Step 6
Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.
