The wep key is something that was created by whoever set up your router. the network information can be found several ways
first way is to click start then run on pc type cmd. in the new window type ipconfig.. the default gateway will be shown as ip address.. type that ip address in explorer. it will be something like the router will show its information on the page that opens but not the wep key. if you cant get the wep key you already have then reset your router with the button on the back of it and then follow the instruction above.. be sure to make a new wep key, do not leave you network unprotected..

Suddenly today after working for a couple of years all the lights are on solid and my wireless laptops can not find the router

To connect to your wireless network using Vista's WLAN Autoconfig, follow these steps:
Step 1:
Right-click this icon 5449-001.png at the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Connect to a network.


Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.


If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.


NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

Once I have enabled WEP, how do I set up the

Access the setup page of the router by typing in the address bar of your browser.

Leave the password blank.

On the setup page of the router, go to Wireless. Take note of your SSID. You may also change the name of your SSID so that you can easily identify your network.

Then go to Security under Wireless.

Select 64-bit WEP. Type a passphrase then click the generate button.

Take note of the passphrase and wep key.

Then click Apply Changes.

On your wireless computer, you should be able to detect your SSID in the available networks.

It will ask you for the network key, type the wep key. On some computers, simply typing the passphrase works.

I hope this helps!

I reset my wireless settings - both the Name (SSID) and input a new 128 bit WEP passphrase and then generate to create a key. I then check wireless networks and refresh. The new Name (SSID) appears but...

I recommend accessing the wireless settings on your router, cut-n-paste the WEP passphrase into a text document on your desktop, then copy and paste the info when you attempt to connect the next time.

If that doesn't work perhaps you need to backup and delete any wireless profiles previously associated with this device and then try again.

Let me know if this helps..

The security type on the router is WEP.
In this case you will need to use the key 1. that will be the network key for your wireless network.
Check just next to the wireless security tab , you will see wireless MAC filter. It must be disabled. If it is Enabled then disable it and save the settings.
When you try to connect using the WEP key 1 , do you get any error message ?
If you get any error then try $ sign and wep key1.

I think the router firmware is not working properly.
Some routers need power cycle ( reboot ) after any changes on the router settings.
Now make sure that you are getting IP address on the internet part of the router.

Having a problem trying to go wireless with router

First thing to do is you need to set up the router. Can you connect wired for about 10 minutes? If so, connect to one of the four ports that are together, not the one that is seperate. then open a browser like IE or mozilla etc... type in the address bar then hit enter, then you will get a pop open box asking user and password. User name is usually admin and password usually is admin or password. After you enter that you should see the router homepage. Then click on the wireless tab, and you will see a page to name the network. You can leave it as linksys or change it to something like your last name or first name or whatever. Then click save. Then open the security section. Easiest way is to use WEP or WPA if WEP enter a passphrase and then enter and it will input a bunch of numbers. Write down the numbers in key 1. If WPA then enter a passphrase, and write it down. Save and close.

Now you can click on the wireless icon in your tray and tell it to connect. It should then ask for your WEP key or passphrase. Then you are good to go

Procedure to secure wep

Routers can be secured in two common manners.

First the network access as you have started using WEP which I will discuss more later.

Second by assigning an administrator password. This prevents anyone except a person possessing the password from configuring your router. This is good to do however if you forget the password resetting the router will clear all of your configuration -- so keep notes to reconfigure your router in a secure place before assigning this password.

Now as to WEP encryption -- first it is preferred your network name (SSID) be unique in your area hopefully you have already changed that. Second WEP generally requires the entry of a passphrase that causes the generation of 4 keys and in a separate box the selection of one of those 4 keys as active. Wireless adapters I have seen either accept a passphrase and active key number like the router or they require the specific active key value from the router. Keys contain hex values characters 0-9 and A-F and are not identical to the alphanumeric passphrase that was entered. Entering the appropriate value into the adapter is required for successful connection.

Security is achieved on the network not by entering the "password" every time you connect to the network but by storing the passphrase (password) and/or the generated by-products in both the computer and router in advance. Since no unauthorized persons know the passphrase or password the access on the wireless is secured. Changing the passphrase periodically is not a bad idea to maintain the security of the network (must be changed in both the router and the device with a wireless adapter. Loss of a computer means loss of the control of the passphrase and should result in a change of the passphrase too.

If you have any additional questions please respond to this with an additional comment.
