    this was part of a biigger problem that still is unresolved. that problem is being able to use wireless to hook to the internet. while the "security" light is on no one can do this. we just want the light to be turned off and maybe then we will try to resecure the router. but thank you for the help it was still helpful.

Hi, doesn't really matter which, what is important is what ever it is you choose, it should be the same/consistent all through out the wireless network/system. example, if you choose wep $ key is 12345 in your router/AP, then all you wifi clients should be using wep $ key of 12345. Choosing or not choosing what wireless security mode to use is not preventing you to log unto the internet, they are designed that you can securely communicate/acces the router/ap and if granted acces, the router/ap will then be your gateway, so first you must be connected/logged on to the router/ap before you can share its internet. Hope this be of some help/ pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

    Hi again jpeezy,

    By default, your security setting is disabled, therefore no need for WPA or WEP not unless the Router/AP has been configured already and set it up with WPA or WEP. You can restore the Router/AP to default/factory setting (no security) by pressing the reset button for about 10seconds+ or until all the led lights flash. The reset button is at the bottom of the unit.

    Another thing you can try is start all over again. Remove all connections to the R/AP, and reconnect your internet modem to your PC. Restore all IP settings in your PC. Just make your PC connect to the internet without the R/AP. When you are sure you can connect to the internet, run the installer CD of the Belkin R/AP without connecting the router yet. It's preferable to do this since if you do it manually, you will have to configure 2 IP adds. Your particular brand/model uses Router > 192.168.2.1 and Access Point > 192.168.2.254 and it gets more complicated. After running the CD, then follow the instructions like connect your R/AP etc.

    An online manual for your unit is available at http://www.belkin.com/support/article/?l...

    Post again for any developments. Kind regards.

I can't find my WEP Key


you can get your WEP by logging to your router via cat 5 cable.
open internet explorer
browse to http://192.168.1.1
default login is blank password is admin
click on wireless click on wireless security
WEP passphase is displayed.
i highly recommend you change WEP to WPA. WPA is much more secured to WEP.

How to solve wireless/internet connection problems on Wii Consoles


You can try the following steps below as it should solve wireless/internet connection problems on your Wii console :

If you are using WEP or WPA security on your router try this:

1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance).
2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
* WPA - PSK (TKIP)
* WPA - PSK (AES)
* WPA2 - PSK (AES)

But if your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:

1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router.

1. go to our Wireless Router look up page.
2. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer.
3. Click on your router's model number, if available.
4. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

Lastly, Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router.

Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response.

Good luck.

The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

How do i find my SSID, WEP key and WPA key trying to connect ps3 to internet.


You need to log onto your router and determine the WEP or WPA key being used. Your router manual has logon details. Also, the key is sometimes on the bottom of the router.

Dear Friend,
You must be trying the WEP -OPEN.
try WPA-PSK and put in your customized password.
Before making any changes in the system remove all the cables from the router and reset the router once and try to configure the network with WPA- PSK.
It should work.
If negative plz contact your ISP

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
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
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

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 then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Thanks for using FixYa.
