You need to choose the correct security setting before you enter the WEP key where it asks you if its WEP. ASCII or unencrypted choose the correct one!

I have my network open and i wish to put a password on it.. how do i do that?


Hi.
First, you need to access your router.
To do this, open a browser, and in the address bar type in: 192.168.1.1

This takes you inside the router's web access program.
From here you can change settings like security.

here as all the instructions for changing it.

  1. Type the following text in the user name and password fields: "admin".

  2. Go to the Basic Settings menu option tab on the top navigation bar and wait for the menu to appear.

  3. Click the Wireless Security menu option in the drop down menu.

  4. Click to select Enable Wireless Security.

  5. Click to select either WEP or WPA in the Network Authentication list.

If WEP is selected
  1. Select hexadecimal or ASCII characters as the Key Format. You can use either as a string of hexadecimal digits (characters 0 through 9 and A through F ) or as ASCII characters (any key on the keyboard).

  2. Select an encryption level from the Key Length list.

  3. Enter four different keys in the Key1, Key2, Key3, and Key4 fields to store on your router. For 40(64)-bit encryption, enter a 5-character (or 10 hexadecimal digits) WEP key. For 104(128)-bit encryption, enter a 13-character (or 26 hexadecimal digits) WEP key.

  4. Select only one key out of the four keys as the Default Key for encryption.

  5. Click the NEXT button, and then click Save and Restart to apply the changes.

  6. Set up WEP encryption on your wireless clients. Refer to the documentation that accompanied your wireless clients, or your wireless clients' on-line help systems, for information on how to set up WEP encryption.

If WPA is selected
  1. Enter your pre-shared key. This key must match the key that is used by each wireless client computer associated to your router.

  2. Choose a key format. This can be hexadecimal digits (0-9 and A-F) or ASCII characters (any key on the keyboard).

  3. WPA Group Rekey Interval specifies how often the key "rotates" or changes.

  4. WPA Encryption allows you to select one of two possible encryption methods-TKIP and AES. Choose one that your wireless clients support.

  5. Click the NEXT button, and then click Save and Restart to apply the changes.

  6. Set up the WPA on your wireless clients. Refer to the documentation that accompanied your wireless clients, or your wireless clients' on-line help system, for information on how to setup WPA.

I know it looks like a lot of information, but really it's not.
Just follow these steps and you're security eill be set up in no time, and then you can rest your fears about someone else using your network without your permission.

NOTE:

NEVER store the password in your computer, because in the event of an infection, that information could be stolen.

Write whatever your new password is down, and keep it safe somewhere. That way, if someone does want to use your network, they will have to ask you for it, and you will have it for them.


I hope this gets you going the way you want!

How to setup WEP on an SMCD3GN Wireless Cable Modem Gateway

448e495.png
1. Log into the router. To do this you will need to open your web browser and enter http://192.168.0.1

418789b.png
2. You will need to log in to the router. The Default Username and Password:
User Login
Username: cusadmin.
Password: password
fdacc91.png
3. Next click on [WIRELESS] link on the Side Navigation bar.

4. Select [WEP] from the [SecurityMode] drop-down menu.

e29ce8a.png
You can choose between standard 64-bit or 12b-bit encryption keys. Below are the configuration options for 64-bit WEP. A passphrase or a manual key can be used

NOTE: To enter a manual WEP key you will need to enter hexadecimal values (A-F and 0-9). Example: 64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (123654ACDE is a valid strong of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption).

f803ad7.png
To automatically generate a 64-bit WEP key, enter in a Passphrase (keyword- ex. homegateway). And click the [Generate Keys] option. Once you do this, the Gateway will dynamically generate 4 keys. Simply configure the Default Key to the one key that you will be using across your network.

5. Select the Open System, Shared Key or Automatic from the [Authentication] drop-down menu. Note in most cases you want it set to Automatic.

44a4e82.png
For more security, you can use 128-bit WEP encryption. To use this mode, select the [128 bit (26 hex digits)] from theWEP Key Length drop-down menu option and the configuration section will be displayed. 128-bit encryption requires a longer key than 64-bit encryption. Keys are defined by entering in a strong in HEX (hexadecimal- using characters 0-9, A-F) or ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange – alphanumeric characters) format. ASCII format is provided so you can enter a string that is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to HEX for use over the network. You can manually enter in the 26-digit hexadecimal key.

Example: 128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. ( 234FEDCBA12340013333389319 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption).

31fa92b.png
NOTE: If you are having a difficult time getting the wireless connection up after enabling WEP- Please confirm that you have configured the SAME WEP key on both the Gateway and Client card.

Not able to connect the sons Nitendo DSi to the internet. They are asking for the WEP Key but on my home hub there is only a WPA Key. BT have told me to connect to you to ask for support.


If your using WPA and your Nintendo DS only supports WEP Encryption theres no way you can connect it to the internet. WEP encryption is different from WPA.

WEP key uses hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F or ASCII format. The ASCII format is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to HEX over the network.

Example of WEP key encryption are:

*64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (12345678FA is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (456FBCDF123400122225271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
*64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length (DMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (2002HALOSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

WPA Key is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

To resolved the issue you have an option to change the WirelessSettings on your router to WEP instead of WPA since WEP is also a secured netwrok. however you need to keep in mind that if you change the encryption you need to configure all othere device connected to the router via WPA and change the settings to WEP.

I downloaded Windows 7 and my wireless laptop won't connect to my 2wire. Where can I get new security key code or info get my laptop to work?


Hey pkkern,
.
Your default 10 digit security is located on the bottom of your router.
.
If you want to change it or for some reason your default key is no longer working we will have to get into the routers configuration homepage.
.
To access this open up your Internet browser and write in this address, (which is your routers address) 192.168.1.254.
.
If your routers homepage does NOT open up check to make sure you have no software firewalls
.
Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
.
Click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel (Status at a Glance) under the Wireless Settings heading.

Setting secured wireless connection


You can enable WEP on your router.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.0.1 to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

Save the settings.

I hope this helps!

Are trying to enter the WEP key and it is not allowing any more the 5 characters (please input 64 bit WEP encryption and Five ASCII Characters))


It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless router before your wireless network adapters. Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption.

Note: Your network will slow down and wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead.

Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

Click here if you cannot access the web-based configuration.

Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Click OK . Click the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.

di614_128wep.gif

Step 3 Select Enable next to the WEP radio buttons. For WEP encryption select 64, 128, or 256-bit encryption. For the Key type select HEX. If you have an option for Authentication type, select Shared Key.

Step 4 Select Key 1. Enter a Hex encryption key that you make up. The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption.

  • 64-bit encryption 10 characters
  • 128-bit encryption 26 characters
  • 256-bit encryption 58 characters (available on DI-614+ only)

    The encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters. For example, A4583DFF1A (64-bit HEX key).

    Step 5 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.
