You'll need to access your routers configuration page through http://192.168.1.1 and either turn off wireless security or get your WEP key and enter it into your 360.

Grace Digital Mondo Wifi radio - plugged in, found my wifi connection, but when I enter my WEP Key, it just cirlces back to :Enter WEP Key. No errors received, just doesn't recognize my WEP K


Hi
You say that the radio keeps demanding the WEP key for your WiFi connection. WEP is just one of several security types to be used for WiFi. The fact that the radio is asking for a WEP key indicates to me that your WiFi is more than likely set to one of the other security standards such as WPA, WPA2-PSK etc etc etc. If this is the case your laptop and kindle etc will be using the same security standard as your WiFi router. To find out which security standard is being used in Windows 7, on your laptop, click on the active connection in the system tray to bring up the list of available connections and then click on "Open Network and Sharing Centre". When the Network Centre page comes up double click on the "Wireless Connection".
A status box will come up and about half way down is a utton "Wireless Properties". Click on this, and in the box that comes up click on the security tab and it will tell you the security type, the encryption type and the wireless key (click on "Show characters").
If the encryption type is not WEP then the radio will not connect to your WiFi, and the radio settings for Security and encryption need to be set to the same as on the laptop for it to connect.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

The wifi on my nintendo ds lite doesn't work even though i changed the settings to WEP ..i dont know if the wep key i type in on my DS is wrong because when i type in the wep key shown on the netgear...


Welcome to Fixya

First you need to check is if the WEP key that you are entering is the WEP key of your router. Try to connect a laptop to your computer which do not belong to the network. Say, your friends laptop. This laptop will ask for a security key if it's the first time to connect to the network. Enter your security key and see if the laptop can connect to the network. If it did not connect then the problem is your WEP key.

Have a good one!

How do i find the wep key number


Hi,

You maybe having problem connecting wirelessly. There's a possibility that when you try to connect wirelessly,it's asking for the network key or WEP key, There are two option both free and paid depending on the warranty of the router. If the router is not under warranty anymore and you contact the manufacturer of the router to ask them to provide you the WEP key, they will ask you to pay for the support. But if you want the free one, follow these steps:

1. Check for the manufacturer sticker at the bottom of the router. You will see there a label that says WEP KEY. It's usually 10 digits characters.

2. Try to type that to the box where its asking for the security key for the wireless network.

3. If nothing happens and its says, INVALID KEY. There's a possibility that the router is manually configured and needs to be reset to the factory default.

4. Look for the reset button at the back of the router,usually a red hole that needs a pen or any pointed object to push through.

5. Push the reset button for 30 seconds while the router is on.

6. Power down the router for 30 seconds then turn it back on.

7. Try to use the WEP KEY that is underneath the router again since it already goes back to its default settings.

If its still the same, you will really need to contact the manufacturer of your Internet Service Provider to reconfigure the router.

Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Trying to hook up my wireless router and it wont connect with the interenet..i have time warner cable as my isp...it asks for a usernamne and password that doesn't exist...timer warner said to talk to you


That's a bit cheeky of them.

The user and and password I'm guessing is probably the WEP key usually located on the box itself try locating it on the router should say WEP

other wise they may be looking also for the SNID no. which is also on the box.

The WEP key is something you designate on your own router. IF you are trying to get into someone else's router you need to ask them for permission to have their WEP key. Otherwise you cant get in. If you forget your WEP key you can do a hard reset on the router to clear out the key.

I need help with my dynalink router i changed the ssid and made a wep key


If you changed your WEP encryption then you've changed your WEP key. 64 bit WEP encrytion uses a 10 charater hexadecimal key and 128 bit uses a 26 charter hex key. You can not switch between the 2 configurations and keep the same key.., although some wireless adapter utility programs will generate a new key for you from the same "passphrase". Most likely your key has changed which would give you that problem. If all else fails, set your router back to defaults (open).. and make sure everything connects... then apply your key and be sure all computers and devices use the same key
