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

How do i find the wep key number


Hi,

You maybe having problem connecting wirelessly. There's a possibility that when you try to connect wirelessly,it's asking for the network key or WEP key, There are two option both free and paid depending on the warranty of the router. If the router is not under warranty anymore and you contact the manufacturer of the router to ask them to provide you the WEP key, they will ask you to pay for the support. But if you want the free one, follow these steps:

1. Check for the manufacturer sticker at the bottom of the router. You will see there a label that says WEP KEY. It's usually 10 digits characters.

2. Try to type that to the box where its asking for the security key for the wireless network.

3. If nothing happens and its says, INVALID KEY. There's a possibility that the router is manually configured and needs to be reset to the factory default.

4. Look for the reset button at the back of the router,usually a red hole that needs a pen or any pointed object to push through.

5. Push the reset button for 30 seconds while the router is on.

6. Power down the router for 30 seconds then turn it back on.

7. Try to use the WEP KEY that is underneath the router again since it already goes back to its default settings.

If its still the same, you will really need to contact the manufacturer of your Internet Service Provider to reconfigure the router.

Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

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.

Wep key


There is a reset button somewhere on the router. It's little, it's recessed, and you'll need a pencil to press it. After you do, your username will be "admin" and password will be "admin". Be sure you go back in and change it.

Reset your router to factory defaults.
For that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back panel of router.
hen connect your router to computer with ethernet cable.
Then you can access it with following link.
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Set WAN settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP .
Click on wireless and enable wi fi.
If you want secure router then enable WEP security then add new code it is your password key for connect wi fi.

Then save settings and restart router.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

I need wep key westell model 327w


Unfortunately, no one could not provide you any WEP key. WEP is a key that you set to your router so that no one could connect to your wireless network. As an owner of the network, you should know what your network key was.

If you forgot your WEP key, you need to reset the router to factory default, configure it and set a new WEP key.

That is the only way. Thank you!

I cant seem to find where the wep key is?


The WEP key is in the software that setup your wireless network for the router or modem whatever you are using. Whoever set it up knows what the WEP key is. If you have any questions let me know.
