    Sure, log into the router and click on the Wirless Settings tab.

    Your key is at the bottom.

Press and hold the reset buten for at least 30 seconds, this reset the router to factory default.
Then its just all over again, but do remember - by cabel, NOT wireless.

Please vote if this was helpful.

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why????

I need my wep key


The WEP encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
I recommend you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, it is much stronger than WEP.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, you need to at least configure the wireless router with encryption, and the SSID, and change the router's default login password.
Please follow these instructions :-

To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router’s wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router’s wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.
To access the Internet you need to connect the DSL or cable modem to the WAN (Internet) port on the wireless router.

a wep encryption is a code you setup apon startup of the network in order to only permit those who you deem fit able to use your wireless internet connection if its asking for one I would make sure that your signing into the proper network as alot have generic names linksys 1-20 and what have you if you know your connecting to the proper network and do not know what the wep could be most modems will have a pin size button in the back of it in order to restore the router to its factory defaults thus allowing you to reset your setting

Cannot connect to wireless internet


How did you reset the wireless router back to the factory defaults?
Did you use the Reset button on the back of the D-Link?
The encryption setting is set in the router's wireless configuration.
After the router has been set to the factory default, connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and open IE browser and enter the configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1) the default login = admin and the PW = blank (just press enter)
Then change to default password so it prevents anyone changing the router's wireless configuration.
The encryption default should be not be enabled.
Change the SSID so you and your guests can identify your wireless router.
You can enable encryption if you wish to prevent unauthorized access, but you need to advise your guests of the encryption key.

I set up an encrypted wireless network at my house, and have forgotten the encryption code. I have a guest that would like to access my internet with his ipod, is there a way to find my key?


All wireless routers should have a hardware reset button, which will restore the device to factory settings. It is usually on the back and very small. You may need a pen or some thin object to press it.

Press and hold the button for a few seconds. The lights should flash or there should be some indication that the reset was successful. The router should now be just as it was the day you bought it. You will need to set up your network again.

After doing so, write down your key and keep it in a safe place! :)
