SOURCE: Linksys Wireless-B Router, Model BEFW11S4

It's really easy to find your wep key if you can log into the router page.  Usually the router is defaulted to or
You put that number after the http:// in a web browser and it should ask you for a username and password.  Either enter the username and password you set it up for, or if you didn't set one it's probably admin admin.  Now there should be a page with a bunch of settings.  Near the top click on the tab that say wireless, and under that tab there should be something called security.  The WEP key you have set up should be in here.  The WEP key is not the passcode, just wanted to point that out.  It's most likely under something by the name of key 1 or something to that affect.  That should take care of your WEP key problem.  I would personally recommend upgrading to a wireless G router if the other devices on your network can use G.  Wireless G is much faster and also allows the use of wireless B devices on it.  Hope I helped.  If you need more help just ask, I might be able to get some screenshots up or direct you to a manual.

Try to reset the router. This should resolve your problem. That model has a small hole were you must press with some a paper clip for exemple for a few seconds. This will reset the router to its original state.

I want to add a laptop to my network or at least get access to the nternet through my Liksys/Cisco E2000. The laptop is running XP. It keeps asking for a WPA key. Can't find the WPA key.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) and Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) are two security protocols and security certification programs developed by the WF Allianceto secure wireless computer networks. The Alliance defined these in response to serious weaknesses researchers had found in the previous systems.
