A WEP key is a Wireless Network security key that allows your devices to connect to the Wireless network. It is usually a 10 digit code (alpha numeric) that is set on your Network DSL router. If you turn your router upside down, you can find it printed with a barcode on a sticker attached to the router.

SOURCE: t my WEP key is there a way I can find it

Hi!

WEP consists of 10 number and letters and is usually under your Wi-Fi (wireless) router...enter that code into ur PSP and it will grant u access to the internet.

Or type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1(which ever your router has set to access it) into your web browser and your loginour password is usually admin and Password is usually blank (as in don't type anything in it) for your router will pop up from there you can find your wep key or you can turn the wep off so your psp will not need a wep key.

Please rate this solution.

Thanks
Rylee

If you are connecting through a standard ethernet cable you should not be getting this question. However, if you are trying to connect through wifi it is best to check your router/hub to make sure there is no preset factory wep or wpa key

I want to connect to a router.how do do it


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Iv got another laptop and it is asking me to put in security key in


First access your router.First connect your router to computer with ethernet lan cable.
You can access your router with following default link.
http;//192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
or
http://192.168.15.1
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password" or "1234" then you can see configuration page of router.
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your Gateway ip in network adapter property gateway ip is your router ip.
Then in configuration page make sure wifi is enable .
.
Check WEP security and add new code because old code is in * or # format add new code then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect with that code.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I need to know my wep key or ssid codes, whats the difference? i need it to set up for my ps3 online


WEP (wired equivalent privacy)

The privacy protocol specified in IEEE 802.11 to provide wireless LAN users protection against casual eavesdropping. WEP refers to the intent to provide a privacy service to wireless LAN users similar to that provided by the physical security inherent in a wired LAN.


When WEP is active in a wireless LAN, each 802.11 packet is encrypted separately with an RC4 cipher stream generated by a 64-bit RC4 key. This key is composed of a 24-bit initialization vector (IV) and a 40-bit WEP key. The encrypted packet is generated with a bitwise exclusive OR (XOR) of the original packet and the RC4 stream. The IV is chosen by the sender and can be changed periodically so every packet won't be encrypted with the same cipher stream. The IV is sent in the clear with each packet. An additional 4-byte Integrity Check Value (ICV) is computed on the original packet and appended to the end. The ICV (be careful not to confuse this with the IV) is also encrypted with the RC4 cipher stream.

WEP has been widely criticized for a number of weaknesses:

Key management and key size
Key management is not specified in the WEP standard; without interoperable key management, keys will tend to be long-lived and of poor quality. Most wireless networks that use WEP have one single WEP key shared between every node on the network. Access points and client stations must be programmed with the same WEP key. Since synchronizing the change of keys is tedious and difficult, keys are seldom changed. Also, the 802.11 standard does not specify any WEP key sizes other than 40 bits. 

The IV is too small

WEP's IV size of 24 bits provides for 16,777,216 different RC4 cipher streams for a given WEP key, for any key size. Remember that the RC4 cipher stream is XOR-ed with the original packet to give the encrypted packet that is transmitted, and the IV is sent in the clear with each packet. The problem is IV reuse. If the RC4 cipher stream for a given IV is found, an attacker can decrypt subsequent packets that were encrypted with the same IV or can forge packets.

Weakness: The ICV algorithm is not appropriate
The WEP ICV is based on CRC-32, an algorithm for detecting noise and common errors in transmission. CRC-32 is an excellent checksum for detecting errors, but an awful choice for a cryptographic hash. Better-designed encryption systems use algorithms such as MD5 or SHA-1 for their ICVs. 

Authentication messages can be easily forged

SSID (Service Set IDentifier)
The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies an 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. 


The SSID is a secret key which is set by the network administrator.

You must know the SSID to join an 802.11 network. However, the SSID can be discovered by network sniffing. By default, the SSID is part of the packet header for every packet sent over the WLAN.
SSID Security Issues

The fact that the SSID is a secret key instead of a public key creates a key management problem for the network administrator. Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.
Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".
Disabling SSID Broadcasting

Many Wireless Access Point (WAP) vendors have added a configuration option which lets you disable broadcasting of the SSID. This adds little security because it is only able to prevent the SSID from being broadcast with Probe Request and Beacon frames. The SSID must be broadcast with Probe Response frames. In addition, the wireless access cards will broadcast the SSID in their Association and Reassociation frames. Because of this, the SSID cannot be considered a valid security tool.
An SSID by any other name

The SSID is also referred to as the ESSID (Extended Service Set IDentifier).


Airsnort, Aircrack 2.1, Cain & Abel are some of the wireless packet sniffing tools which can decode the authorization key.

Wep key


it all depends. There is usually a way to set it if you connect directly to the router, with a cable, then open up the website 192.168.1.1
When you open that up, you will basically be viewing your router's web page, and in the wireless security settings you can manually set your WEP key. these settings are in different places for different routers, but that's the general idea.

Toshiba laptops satellite 4090


Hi, The laptop you purchased is an older model. It will use most any IDE laptop hard drive. The drive you mentioned from your Dell will work in it. You will need to pull the hard drive and put the sliders or hardware off the old one on to the new one. Look here for more info on your laptop. Look under portables.
