The WEP code is the security code required for a wireless computer to connect to the router. The code is contained in the router, which has a Web-based setup page. To access the page, open Internet Explorer and type in "192.168.1.1" for the URL. You do not need "HTTP" or "WWW", etc. Just the numbers and periods. This should bring up the sign-on screen for the router. The default values are the User name is left blank and the Password is "Admin". If the default values have been changed and you do not know them, the router will have to be reset to default values. If it works, this will bring up the setup page. At the setup page select the "Wireless" tab and then the "Wireless Security" tab. you should then be able to see your WEP code on the "Key 1" line. There is more information at the Ask Linksys web site: http://www3.nohold.net/noHoldCust56/Prod_6/KnowledgePortal/KPScripts/amsviewer.asp?docid=020ec5ed895e45dbb17a52fcea33fb57_KB4002_EN_070328_v1.xml&amsstatsid=5077271

What is wep"? on wifi


the devices like laptops and tablets connect to the wi fi router through a number of connection types. Some are direct and some are secured. The secured connections require a code that is set up during the configuration of the wireless network router. One type of secure connection uses the WEP code. (wired equivalent privacy) . If your device is asking for a wep code then the router has been set up to ask for this code. You will need to find out what the code is. If you are not the owner of the router then you need to ask the owner. If you are the owner and have forgotten the password then you could factory reset the router and use the default setting. But this is risky as anyone can connect to the network around your place.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blankand the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have lost the password for my LIVEBOX C640 router on orange. I am connecting a new NETBOOK but it keeps asking for the password. My original laptop still operates on the router wireless


If you have forgotten your wireless security password then you need to add new password because it is saved in * and # format so you need to add new code.
You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It isyour password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Cannot connect to my D-Link AirPlus Xtreme G DI-624 wirelessly


In case like this one sometimes it is best to reset the password then try to connect each of the devices.

The D Link 6 series router where good but a little tempermental at times. Also you could check the Dlink site for new firmware as from time to time manufacturers make improvements even after the product has been to market.

Can't connect to my router anymore (WEP encrypted).


Hi deray953,

First we need to remove the previous profile in your wireless network. I believe you know the SSID for wireless connection using WEP security. You can check this by going to;

Using Windows XP SP2/3
1. "Control Panel" > Switch control panel to classic view ( look at the upper left side ). > Double click "Network Connections" > Right click "Wireless Network Connections" > choose "Properties"> Click the Tab "Wireless Networks" ( middle tab) > go to the list of profiles and remove the Wireless name or SSID for your home connections. > click OK and Close the properties of wireless.

To reconnect again, you need to know your WEP key or network key for wireless connections if not, you can do this procedure...

1.Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".
d. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
e. take note of the KEY 1 ...that is your WEP key..take note of it.

Connecting Through Wireless Zero Configuration (Windows XP SP1 and SP2)

For Windows XP Service Pack 1:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then, click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then, click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

Connecting to a Wireless Network on Windows Vista:

a. Click Start then select Connect To.
b. Connect to a network window will show up.
c. Select your wireless network's name or SSID and click Connect.
d. It will ask you for a network key. Type in your wireless network key on the field provided. Then, click on Connect.

Need to get laptop connected to wireless connection


The passphrase only means that there is a security enabled on that wireless network. You are correct, you need to know that passphrase for you to be able to successfully connect your laptop to that wireless network.

If you need more help on how to get this passphrase just let me know.
