Type in 192.168.1.1 in a browser page. A login box will open up. You will need to put the password in . If you have not set a password, then the default is admin. Leave the user name blank.
when the Linksys setup page opens, click on wireless, then on security. you will see your WEP key there.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Don't know my password


Are you looking for wireless network password or Linksys router password?
If you are trying to connect to the wireless network then it might be asking you for the wireless network key or the passphrase.
You can open the setup page of the router and check the wireless settings.

As soon has i put a wep key i am unable to connect wireless ????


You now need to add the WEP key to your wireless settings on your wireless device. Go to wireless networks, advanced network settings, find the name of your network, and add the WEP code, you will need to change the security settings to WEP.. That will fix your problem.

Got new work laptop. Need WEP key to set up wireless so can work for home. Don't know how to find the key


Hi kaa1960,

To be able to get you Network key you will need to get in the Router settings page.

  • Firs you will need an Ethernet cable to connect you computer to the Router.
  • Once you have the cable and that the Router is connected to the Compute you will need to open IE or Firefox.
  • Now on your Browser on the Address bar you will need to type in 192.168.1.1 then press Enter this should open up a windows asking for a user name and password.
  • For the User Name type in Admin and for the Password leave it Blank or it can be the other way around leave the User name Blank and the password admin.
  • this should open the Linksys setting page click the Wireless Tab or Link then the network mode or radio should be enabled to get wireless working on your Linksys Router.
  • Also third i where you can get the WEP key of your Router you may also change that if your wish to WEP can only be a 10 numerical password most Internet service providers use the phone numbers of the customer as the WEP key.
I hope that this helps.

Thank you for choosing FIxya,

I need the wep


you can find this out by connecting to your linksys router with a cat 5 cable.
in your browser such as internet explorer or firefox type
192.168.1.1
login with your login/pass that you assigned to it.
go to the wireless tab and go to security
it will show the the WEP key that is needed in order for your laptop or wireless devices to connect.
BTW I would recommended using WPA as WEP is not secured.

I cannot link my my Ipod to my router. What must


Make sure that the wireless network key which you are punching is right,If it's WEP key,then try putting a dollar "$" sign before you give the WEP key.
In order to re-check the wireless network key of your router,follow following steps:

1> By default ip address of all linksys router is 192.168.1.1.Open the internet browser & clear address bar at the top completely & type default gateway of yours computer which you are getting from router
2> Default username is blank & password is "admin".Otherwise give router password.Again if it is not working type default password which you usually give to your computers
3> Finally,you will be on router setup page;in top click on Wireless tab --> Wireless Security
4> Here you can re-check that your wireless network password.

If u need technical help in order to do the above changes in router have a words with linksys technical suppoprt.

I dont know how to change the SSID Name and WEP Key.


You have to change it in the printer settings, not in the router! Otherwise you'll lose connectivity in all the other computers that use this router.
The SSID is the name you gave to your wireless network, and the WEP key is the password you set for your wireless connection.

Conecting my Brother Wireless Printer


Hello....I'll try and help you make a start.

1. To find the settings you need to set up your printer, you will need to login to your router. Open a web browser, as if to view a web page, but instead type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar at the top.

2. If successful, you are prompted for a username and password. If you have not changed these, leave username blank , and enter password: admin. Otherwise, please enter the password you have set.

3. If you log in successfully, you should see the Linksys router configuration screen.

Select the Wireless tab, and go to ‘Basic Wireless Settings’ > Wireless network. You should see here your SSID or Wireless Network Name, as required for your printer setup.

4. Go to ‘Wireless Security’. If the ‘Security Mode’ is set to ‘Disabled’, your system is Open or unsecured: your encryption type will be ‘None’.

If, however, it is set to WEP, your WEP key should be shown below. If it is set to WPA-Personal or similar, your WPA Shared Key should be shown below. This is the key described in your posting as the WPA2-PSK or Pre-Shared Key: it is also known as the network key, security key, or passphrase.

I think this covers all the settings mentioned in your posting. For further information, SecureEasySetup, AOSS and WPS/Wi-fi Protected Setup are shortcut methods to enable security on your router. Recent versions of your router model support SecureEasySetup.

You can download a copy of the manual for your router from the Linksys site: http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support/WRT54G/download
(You will need to check your router label for the correct version number.)

I hope this helps. This advice is based on the Linksys WRT54G user manual. However, please come back to Fixya if this is not clear or does not work for you.

Wireless router connection problems


Assuming "cannot connect to linksys router directly" means you cannot connect to a Wireless Lan managed by Linksys router,
1) try to connect new computer to LinkSys Router using a Lan cable, add new PC to your network.
2) recover protocol (WEP or WPA) and Key of WLAN (Passphrase or Key: TKIP or AES) either from other PC on same network either from your Router.
3) If you missed actual key you must connect to router and reset it to a new key to be eventually used for every connected device.
Call for detail on this possibility

Trying to get cd download for linksys can't find it on site


1) Install the wireless card to your new computer first (if doesn't have any)
2) See the status of your network, go to wireless network
3) Select your wireless network and select "connect"
4) Put your WEP key (if any)

You don't need have access to your wireless router in order to get connected,
only you have to know is your wep password or key (if any) -

If you don't have any key or pass you only must to kit "connect" and that's it.

Let me know if you have further questions

Wep passphrase


You will be able to get the wep key or passphrase from the wireless router or access point.

To some routers, the SSID (wireless network name) and WEP keys are found underneath the router itself. It you cannot see any, then you will need to access the setup page of the router.

This depends on what is the brand of your router.

If you let me know the brand and model I might be able to help you in checking the settings.
