You have two methods of finding or restoring this key.

1: log into the device. If you have a PC already working through this device, go to that pc, click on Start then RUN. Tpe CMD and hit enter. this will opena black window. type ipconfig. you should see an entry for the Gateway IP address. this should be the IP address of that router. Now open Internet explorer and enter the ip in the address field (not a search filed). hit enter and see if you end up with a menu. if so, you will be able to navigate to the wireless security and adjust or find that security key. If prompted for a password, you are in trouble. You'll then need to do option 2.

2: If you cant get intot the device configuration as described above, you can reset the unit to factory defaults( usually clearling the key altogether). This can be done by presssing the reset button for about 10 seconds (small pin or paperclip actuated button on the device.

Since you did not specify the model, I cant previide more details.

My son has just bought a Xbox 360 kinect and he wants to sign up for the online Xbox live and we are unable to get the WEP key in order to connect. We are using the Netgear but have tried 192.168.0.1,...


What you are entering are IP addresses, these are not the WEP encryption key.
The XBox needs the Netgear WEP encryption key, this is in the Netgear wireless settings.
To get this encryption key connect a LAN cable from a computer's LAN port to the Netgear, open a browser and enter the Netgear configuration URL
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = password
You can now go into the wireless settings - you can view the WEP encryption key

I need the security key to my existing wireless netgear router.


The Security Key is normally used for Wireless routers to protect your connection from any unauthorized use. As you have said that you do not have the Security key for your router with you, the best way to connect your ACER laptop to the Netgear router is by asking your Wireless service provider to reset the security key & freshly reentering the same on both of your HP & ACER laptops.

I cant connect thru my netgear router model wgr614v7


If you hook your PC directly to the router using an Ethernet cable you don't need the key. You can log into the router and change the WEP Key to anything you want, but u have to be directly connected to the router not going through the wireless.

Sierra Wireless AirCard 595U And PS3


I understand that you want to connect the PS3 using the Wireless card and NETGEAR card. Please note that the setup you have will not work for internet access. You can not configure the Air card to work with NETGEAR router. you need to have wih a broadband connection available for this router to connect to internet.

Once you have the router configured with Internet access then you may either connect the PS3 wired or wireless to the router, like you connect a desktop or laptop to the router.

Question on setting up two computers


Yes, I have pretty much the same setup at home. Wired desktop and wireless laptop. On the back of your wireless router, there should be 4 or 5 wired connections which you can use. You will only have to use the setup disk on one computer. Basically, the setup disk is for the router, not the computers, it simply guides you through the router configuration process. You can also do this manually, the manual for the router will give those instructions as well.

Get booted off


Ok. i have the exact same problem, but i use linksys. I have has geeksquad and they dont know. I have only one option i havent tried. try to just hook up the modem to your router only. Buy a wireless adapter for your home computer. If it doesnt work, return it for a refund. I feel for you guys because i have been going through hell and it drives me crazy that even geeksquad doesnt know. (By the way dont buy that garbage when the people say you need a new router, because they just want more money.)

Security problems


You are looking for the WEP key that is configured on your router. Use your PC that's connected via ethernet, go to the config web page for the router and somewhere on the wireless security settings you will find the WEP key that was configured for your wireless network.
