The Older model Scanners can. The newer Models can only intercept Local traffic and not Private Police Bands.

I was given a uniden police scanner and I need to know the frequencies and how to get the static out. . Thank you . Rhonda Hansen

First thing to try is to change the "squelch" setting. If you squelch is set wrong, you will hear static all the time and the scanner may not scan. Turn the squelch until you no longer hear the static and the scanner scans.

Is there buttons i can press to reset my scanner

Even if your scanner can manage to receive the frequencies, you would not be able to hear what people are saying. only the first generations of cell phones were analog and you could hear on side of the connection. Today all pone communication is digital, encrypted and you only can receive a phone close enough to you, to hear just a rattling noise. Modern phones are working close to and above 2 Ghz. A frequency, most scanners can't receive.

Need to get wep key for wlan

The WEP key is an encryption/authentication key. It is used in a wireless network to authenticate a device as being authorized to access the network and is also used to encrypt traffic between the wireless device and the access point. WEP is a weak encryption method and should be replaced with WPA2

Cannot get my i phone tp accept the 26 key WEP encryption

Try setting your wireless security on WPA2 instead of the WEP. This is also supposed to be a more secure incryption.

I have a problem with my wireless card. I am trying to connect wireless for the internet and its not working and in the device manager it is showing wireless card adapter what should I do

If you have setup a security on the router so that a password is needed to access you will need to enter it. If you don't remember, then there should be a small reset hole on the router. Put in a small pin or pencil and hold it in for a few seconds and release. all the lights will proboably come on then do it's reboot cycle. Be sure to read and understand the steps you go through during setup. One of the questions will deal with encryption. Just leave it blank or do not put incryption. The chance of someone using your connection via your router are slim and none. Also by having no encryption will give you a slightly quicker connection speed too.
