Have lost my 3COM network key number


Hello, welcome to fixya.

If by lost your "network key number" you mean the WEP or WPA key that you setup from the router's settings and you use to connect everytime to that wireless router then I would suggest to push the "reset" button on the device (A small pinhole button usually located in the back or bottom of the device).

Doing this, will reset your wireless device to initial factory settings and so you will know the standard WEP key by then. It is written on a sticker on the device along with the SSID,administration console IP/password and MAC address of the router.
NOTE: Resetting factory settings on your router will cause all settings to dissapear (ports forwarded etc.)and will have to be done from the beginning.

Im pretty sure this will fix this type of problem 98% of the time (unless the nature of the problem is different).

Kind Regards from FixYa.

Where can I find the WEP key on my router? Router security key, router password


Where can I find the WEP key on my router?

If you have a wireless router at home you will need to have a WEP key setup on your router. WEP stands for "Wired Equivalent Privacy" and WEP is a security protocol used to secure wireless networks. When you setup a router for wireless, you normally specify a key(password) so anyone that wishes to join your network has to enter the key. You normally set the WEP key during the router setup phase. You may have set it up and forgot it, or want to reset it. In this article I will go over the steps to find out the WEP key or change it. Your router may use a different security protocol than WEP so don't worry, you still need a KEY in order to access the network.

-On most routers(reference your user manual) you can access the router configuration page by going to the gateway address. The gateway address is the IP address assigned to your router. In a lot of the cases, this address is 192.168.1.1 but depends on your router.
There are a couple of ways to find out this IP address.
-Reference your router manual
-In Microsoft Windows, go to Start > Run and in the run box type "cmd" or "command". A black DOS windows should open. In this window, type "ipconfig /all". Look near the top and you should see a "gateway address" item. This number is the ip address of your router.

Once you know your gateway address, open up your internet browser as if you were going to go to a website. In the URL(address) bar, type the gateway address and hit enter(see image below). A log in box should now show. Again, reference your router manual if you do not know the administrative password. Enter in your password and username.

Once you log in you now have access to the router settings and you can configure what you please. What we are looking for in this article is the wireless security settings. In the wireless security settings page you should be able to see the password for your wireless network and change it. If you see no password go ahead and set one up.
**You can also look around and modify other settings. You can change the wireless security, give your wireless network a name(SSID field) and even with some routers have built in testing features to test the connection at home.
I would recommend that if your router has a default password for admin/configuration access, that you go ahead and create a new one. The default router passwords are usually very simple and this information can be easily found on the internet by anyone. People who set up home networks tend to leave this as is and it is a security risk.


TIPS
-If you can't connect to the router and you know the gateway address, try plugging the computer into the router directly using a Ethernet cable(LAN/patch cable). If you are still having trouble, you can perform a power cycle. Turn off your modem, router and computer. After 10 seconds turn on your modem, after 30 seconds turn on your router and after another 30 seconds turn on your computer. Try to access the router now. This also helps resolve other quirky router issues.
-Make sure all the network cables, phone lines(if using DSL) and coaxial cables(cable/Broadband) are plugged in and secured firmly.

-If you set up a password and username for your routers administrative access and can't remember it, you can reset the username and password back to factory default by performing a factory reset. On most routers this can be achieved by pressing and holding the small reset button on the back of the router for 15 seconds. Please reference router user manual for more information.

I hope this article was informative. Thanks for reading.

Regards,
G33k

I bought a wireless adapter at a garage sale and I do not know the WEP code


The WEP key is set in the wireless router you're trying to connect to, and that's the one you need to know. When you put the adapter in your computer and try to connect, you'll need to provide the code. There's nothing built into the wireless adapter already.

If you're trying to connect to a network and you don't know the key, you'll need to get it from someone who does. Or, if this is your own wireless router and was set up but now you've forgotten the key, you can reset it. There will be a recessed RESET button on the router's back panel. Press and hold it for 10 seconds and release it. The router will restart and all its settings will back to factory defaults. Then you can enter the wireless setup page and create a new WEP key.

Web key wireless internet service


I think you meant WEP key. this is a wireless encryption security key. and it is normally required when you try to connect to a secured network. Your administrator should be able to provide you with this. because it varies. i.e you can set it to whatever you want if you have access to the wireless router. in your case Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router
so please if you have access to it, log in to the router and check from wireless security settings.

My xbox 360 wont connect to my friends internet. something bout a wep key. how can i connect?


You need to get the WEP key from the person that setup the network. The WEP key is a password that you setup to prevent outside users from connecting to the wireless network. If you are using FIOS for your internet provider, the WEP key will be printed on the router itself. If you provided your own router, then you need to get in touch with the person that setup the network. If you cannot get the WEP key, then you will need to reset the router to factory default. Most routers have a small button on the back of them. You need to hold the button in for about 20 seconds. This will reset the router to factory defaults. The SSID might  also change to another name too. However, the wireless network should be open after reset and no WEP is needed.

I just got a laptop, and i am trying to connect it to tthe router, it's says i need a wep/wap key. where can i find that key?


The wep key has to be created on the router so if you didn't set it up then you need to ask the person who did what it is. Assuming that it is your router and you lost or forgot the key then you can get into the router with a computer that is hardwired to the router. So you plug your laptop into the router and open up internet explorer. In the address bar you need to put in the router's address (Ex: linksys is 192.168.1.1) this will pull up the router menu default login is admin and password admin or root. (if these have been changed then you can push in the reset button on the back but this will wipe out everything and you'll have to set it up again,not preferable.) If you have another router then you can get online on another computer and look these default codes up for your router. If these work then you are in the menu and you can go to security section and create a new wep (or take it off completely again not preferable) make sure to save the changes you have made before getting out of the menu and write down the wep you created or save it in a word doc. Now you can unhook your laptop and try to connect wirelessly when it asks for a wep put in the key you created,reenter it and hit connect and you should be good to go.

I am needing the key or WEP to re-connect to wireless


If it was not setup with a WEP key then try "admin" that is the password for Linksys when not set up. The purpose of the WEP key is to install a password to type in before anyone can use your network. So if "admin" does not work then you have to ask the person who set up the Wireless Network what the WEP key is.
