Where is wep key location


WEP key is in your router's configuration settings.

in windows open a command prompt (search for "cmd" from the start menu)

in command prompt type "ipconfig"

Look for "default gateway" and remember the ip address listed for it

in your browser (internet explorer, firefox, chrome) type the ip address from the default gateway into the address bar. probably something like 192.168.0.1

once you access the router settings, the WEP key is under the WIRELESS section, called security.

How to i password lock my router for my wi-fi


There is an option called WEP (Wired Encryption Privacy)
You have to loginto the wireless router and enable the WEP authentication.
It will ask you to type in a key and again reenter the same key.
Please do remember the WEP key as next time you try to connect to wireless your laptop will ask for the WEP key. enter in the same key and you will be able to go to internet.

Those who wants to use your wireless need to enter the same key. If you dont want someone to access your wireless then you dont provide him the key.

Not able to connect the sons Nitendo DSi to the internet. They are asking for the WEP Key but on my home hub there is only a WPA Key. BT have told me to connect to you to ask for support.


If your using WPA and your Nintendo DS only supports WEP Encryption theres no way you can connect it to the internet. WEP encryption is different from WPA.

WEP key uses hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F or ASCII format. The ASCII format is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to HEX over the network.

Example of WEP key encryption are:

*64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (12345678FA is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (456FBCDF123400122225271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
*64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length (DMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (2002HALOSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

WPA Key is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

To resolved the issue you have an option to change the WirelessSettings on your router to WEP instead of WPA since WEP is also a secured netwrok. however you need to keep in mind that if you change the encryption you need to configure all othere device connected to the router via WPA and change the settings to WEP.

3.On the router setup page Click Wireless and then clcik Wireless Security.
4.The Security mode will be selected in WEP

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Security code: I have someone accessing my wireless network and want to security code it.


Right, it is quite simple really, simply open your browser, and login to the router, using login and password, once in the router select security, and generate a WAP/WEP "Key" (now copy paste this, huge 64 bit or 32 bit hex, to a note pad document and save it to the desktop, for later pasting into the WiFi Network itself.) Now once you have generated and set the password Key, save the configuration and reboot the router, and then, the PC, after the PC comes back up, Go to "Connect to a network" and select your SSID, (The name of your WiFi Router's connection), you will be asked for the WEP/WAP "Key" you can then copy.paste from that notepad document, into the password/Key "Field" and proceed, ensure you check, "Remember password".

Where do I find the WEP key code on my modem model number 2247NWG


the network administrator (whoever configure your router) should have the wep key you're looking for, if you're that person and forgot your wepkey you need to reset your router so you can go back into the router configuration page and reset a new key (and hopefully you'll remember it next time).
here some instructions for your product:

check on page 14 (FAQ) of router's manual
resetting router to default configuration (router's manual)

good luck!

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.

I have a Tosiba Laptop that is wireless to my desktop but now I bought a new HP wirless Printer and it want my WEP key. Nothing on the router helps, tried all three numbers. What do I do?


The WEP key is the security key that you setup when you initially setup your router. w/o that key you won't be able to connect. if you can not remember the wep key; enter the setup of your router. u will see it there under the security setting tab.
