Hi

I would suggest you use WPA instead of WEP if possible.

If you must use wep use 128bit or better.

I cannot access my wep hex key how can i locate


The WEP key is an encryption key that secures your wireless router from unauthorized access. WEP is an old encryption method for a later and stronger encryption use WPA or better still WPA2.

Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on yourcomputer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down andput it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2encryption.
Apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

How to secure my network


You can secure it by setting a security key. By default, linksys wireless has a default WEP key and SSID which you will be able to see at the back of the router where you see a sticker on it. If you want to change it, you can use this link to set it up.http://www.columbia.edu/acis/networks/aptnet/linksys/index.html

Need to accessmy router wep code


Hi wdarrel11,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

What is a WEP key for a Linksys WRT400N wireless router?


The WEP encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
I recommend you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, it is much stronger than WEP.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

How can I secure my wireless connection?


By using a WEP key, please find your manual below, download it, and go to SECURITY, it shows one step by step how to set your WAP/WEP "KEY" Once set, you are secure. As to logon to the WiFi network, you need the special "KEY" to do so.

I want to connect my wii to the internet but i dont know the WEP key


You should not be using WEP, it is not secure. If you can, you should use WPA2.
To get your password/key, log on to your router / wireless/ security and set/find your password/key

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.

Securing wireless router


Click here for a link to the instruction manual. All this was retrieved from p.48
First off make sure your wireless connection is working
1. On the Setup tab of the Router’s web-based utility, click the Enable radio button next to WEP. Then click the Edit WEP Settings button.
2. You will see the 2.4GHz, 54g, Wireless-G (WEP) screen (Figure C-1). Next to Default Transmit Key, select which WEP key (1-4) will be used when the
Router sends data. Make sure the receiving device is using the same key.
3. For the WEP Encryption drop-down box, select the level of WEP encryption you wish to use, 64-bit 10 hex digits or 128-bit 26 hex digits. Higher encryption levels offer higher levels of security, but due to the complexity
of the encryption, they may decrease network performance.
4. Instead of manually entering WEP keys, you can enter a Passphrase in the Passphrase field. This Passphrase is used to generate one or more WEP keys. It is case-sensitive and should not be longer than 16 alphanumeric characters. (This Passphrase function is compatible with Linksys wireless
products only. If you want to communicate with non-Linksys wireless products, enter the WEP key manually on the non-Linksys wireless products.)
After you enter the Passphrase, click the Generate button to create WEP keys.

Note: All Wireless-G and 802.11b devices in your network must use the same Passphrase or WEP key.
5. WEP keys enable you to create an encryption scheme for wireless LAN transmissions. If you are not using a Passphrase, then manually enter a set of values in each Key field. (Do not leave a key field blank, and do not enter all zeroes. These are not valid key values.) If you are using 64-bit WEP encryption, then the key must be exactly 10 hexadecimal characters in length. If you are using 128-bit WEP encryption, then the key must be exactly 26 hexadecimal characters in length. Valid hexadecimal characters are “0”-“9” and “A”-“F”.
6. Check all the values, and click theApply button to save your WEP settings and return to the Setup screen. To cancel any changes you’ve entered on this page, click the Cancel button. To get more information about the features, click the Help button.

Security


Go to the router's web interface (192.168.1.1), in the wireless section go to Wireless Security. Enable WEP, you will create a WEP key for your wireless network, then that key will be asked to any wireless device that tries to use your wireless network.
