If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router,
your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without
authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical,
it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available"
by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is
through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are
generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA
pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow".
Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your
network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are
These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.
If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at here
Do your other devices support 64bit wep, and are you selecting that as your encryption type on each device. For example I know on my cellphone I have to specify the type of encryption that is used. You might also log into the router, just to double check the encryption type and the pass phrase (even if you are spelling it right).
Good day. If your looking for your looking for the pass phrase or network key for your router. You can try to do the following.
1. Check for a WEP key on the router itself. Usually it is on a sticker located under the router or at the back of it.
2. You can go to the router page using your internet explorer or mozilla
> just type in 192.168.1.1 on your browser
> it will ask for a username and password
> username: leave it blank
> then go to wireless setting
> then it will show you your WEP or WPA or Wireless key
> Dont be confuse the wep or wpa or pass phrase are all the same
> then just type it on the space where its asking you to type in a pass phrase and that should work
3. If still you can locate it you can contact your internet service providers technical support department and they will be able to walk you through it
Hope this information will be helpful in resolving your concern. Have a great day and thanks for using fixya.

If you need more help dont hesitate to ask me.. if it help you out please like the answer..thanks
You can use a pass-phrase scanner which will find and display the network pass-phrase and key. Or if its a small network then you can reset the router to factory defaults and use the default password to re-setup the network.. Sometimes its easier to reset to factory defaults but you have to have all your ducks in a row. You need to know the WAN details and any printer specifics and open port details etc.
..and you will have to setup every machine on the network to use the new passphrase/key. ..ooorrrr get a network scanner to reveal the pass phrase/key
Recheckyour password at the router. start your browser on the laptop and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. A pop up window should appear for you to "log into" your router. IF you have never done this then leave the user name blank and type "admin" in the password. Once your connected to the router, choose "wireless" from the top menu and go to wireless security. Make sure your security settings are set and what the "pass phrase" is. maybe reset a pass phrase and choose WPA for the settings.
WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.
WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.
I don't know what system you have on your laptop, but there are many stupid WLAN management applications that come with various equipment, while Windows has a good WLAN management system built in. Try to turn off this "i-know-better" application, usually by going to Networking, choosing the wireless network and checking an option "let Windows manage wireless networks".
First, check to make sure that you can get Internet through a wired connection, if you can't then wireless won't work either. Second, if you can, then try connecting to the wireless without using WEP or any security. You can turn this off by going to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser while wired to the router from your PC and go under wireless security. If you can connect from an unsecured access point then set up a WEP key with a pass-phrase and when you are asked for the pass-phrase from the PC use the the hex key 1 that is generated by the router instead of the pass-phrase. You should have no problem connecting. Thye wizard that comes on the configuration CD will not set up your wireless correctly, you really have to configure the system using the IP.
Check your router configuration under some sort of Wireless Encryption option. Essentially you or someone else set up a "passphrase" on that router which created either 64-bit or 128-bit encrypted keys from that phrase. You'll most likely find this passphrase under the Encryption information.
