You can access the setup page of the 2wire ADSL gateway to check what is the WEP key or you can give the 10 digit code printed on the buttom of the hardware a shot if that will do the trick, now if the tech from geek squad change the security level to 128bit and configured a new 26 digit WEP key(yes WEP can be 10 or 26 digit depending on the configuration) then the only option is to access the setup pag.

How do I find my wep key number


You can find your Belkin WEP key on its bottom or back side, Normally all other routers are coming without password, but belkin asks its physical address has its WEP password,
you can change it's password and SSID by login in through internet explorer, both the username and password of router can find on it's backside, then follow some easy steps to change SSID (wireless name) and wireless password (WEP) min 8 charectors,
please don't try to change your username and password provided by your Network provider if are not a professional, (connection may lost)
Thank you rate if you succeeded

Hooking up to a 2wire is easy, on the back of the 2wire in the WEP number, (ten digit number). Turn on the Roku and on the settings menu look for the network setting, find your home network and put in the 10 digit WEP number and connect.

Can't connect the artisan 800 to our wireless network


To add the printer to your wireless network, you need to know the name (SSID)
of your wireless network. If it has security enabled, you also need to know the
WEP key or passphrase. Write down the SSID and WEP key or passphrase below:
■ Network name (SSID): _________________________________________
■ WEP key or passphrase: _________________________________________
Note:
If the WEP key is either 5 or 13 characters, it’s ASCII. If the WEP key is either 10 or 26
characters, it’s hexadecimal. The default WEP key is usually 1.
If your passphrase contains upper- or lowercase letters, be sure to note it correctly.
The printer supports the following wireless security modes: WEP 64, WEP 128, and
WPA-PSK.
If you don’t know your wireless network name (SSID) or WEP key or passphrase,
contact the person who set up your wireless network before you begin.


Insert the printer software CD.
2. Windows Vista®: If you see the AutoPlay window, click Run Epsetup.exe.
When you see the User Account Control screen, click Continue.
Windows® XP: When you see the Software installation screen, continue with
step 3.
Mac OS® X: Double-click the icon.
3. Click Install.

1.Make sure that the printer is turned on.
2. When you see the FireWall Warning screen, click Next.
3.Make sure you connected the Ethernet cable

Need wep to connect laptop from school to home network while at home


YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THE WEP KEY IN YOUR INTERNET CONNECTIONS. IF THERE IS NO WEP KEY, JUST CREATE ONE AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO. THIS CONNECTION LINK HAS A TAB TO SHOW CHARACTERS IF THE KEY HAS BEEN ENTERED. YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO REMEMBER IT, OR JUST CREATE A NEW CONNECTION WITH A NEW WEP KEY! THAT IS THE EASY WAY! GOOD LUCK.

WEP key


what is your router? do you know the gateway of your router?

1. Know what is your gateway by using a pc that is online hardwire to your router
> On that pc- check your gateway by doing ipconfig- your DG is your gateway
2. Then access the configuration page of your router- ex. 192.168.1.1
> Use your browser and type your gateway there.
> It will ask for username and password. You should know that.
3. When your inside your router's configuration page-look for wireless tab, then look for wireless security- you should be able to see there your wep key.
4. Finally type in that wep key on your toshiba laptop. It might ask you to confirm, so type it twice. =)
