Plug a laptop or pc to the router with an ethernet cord.
go to internet explorer and type in "192.168.1.1"
log in to your router then go to security tab (depending on your router model) you are looking for WEP or WPA password. Change the password (write it down as well) and save your settings

Good luck - Dont forget to RATE this solution :]

Where is wep key location


WEP key is in your router's configuration settings.

in windows open a command prompt (search for "cmd" from the start menu)

in command prompt type "ipconfig"

Look for "default gateway" and remember the ip address listed for it

in your browser (internet explorer, firefox, chrome) type the ip address from the default gateway into the address bar. probably something like 192.168.0.1

once you access the router settings, the WEP key is under the WIRELESS section, called security.

Where can I find the WEP key on my router? Router security key, router password


Where can I find the WEP key on my router?

If you have a wireless router at home you will need to have a WEP key setup on your router. WEP stands for "Wired Equivalent Privacy" and WEP is a security protocol used to secure wireless networks. When you setup a router for wireless, you normally specify a key(password) so anyone that wishes to join your network has to enter the key. You normally set the WEP key during the router setup phase. You may have set it up and forgot it, or want to reset it. In this article I will go over the steps to find out the WEP key or change it. Your router may use a different security protocol than WEP so don't worry, you still need a KEY in order to access the network.

-On most routers(reference your user manual) you can access the router configuration page by going to the gateway address. The gateway address is the IP address assigned to your router. In a lot of the cases, this address is 192.168.1.1 but depends on your router.
There are a couple of ways to find out this IP address.
-Reference your router manual
-In Microsoft Windows, go to Start > Run and in the run box type "cmd" or "command". A black DOS windows should open. In this window, type "ipconfig /all". Look near the top and you should see a "gateway address" item. This number is the ip address of your router.

Once you know your gateway address, open up your internet browser as if you were going to go to a website. In the URL(address) bar, type the gateway address and hit enter(see image below). A log in box should now show. Again, reference your router manual if you do not know the administrative password. Enter in your password and username.

Once you log in you now have access to the router settings and you can configure what you please. What we are looking for in this article is the wireless security settings. In the wireless security settings page you should be able to see the password for your wireless network and change it. If you see no password go ahead and set one up.
**You can also look around and modify other settings. You can change the wireless security, give your wireless network a name(SSID field) and even with some routers have built in testing features to test the connection at home.
I would recommend that if your router has a default password for admin/configuration access, that you go ahead and create a new one. The default router passwords are usually very simple and this information can be easily found on the internet by anyone. People who set up home networks tend to leave this as is and it is a security risk.


TIPS
-If you can't connect to the router and you know the gateway address, try plugging the computer into the router directly using a Ethernet cable(LAN/patch cable). If you are still having trouble, you can perform a power cycle. Turn off your modem, router and computer. After 10 seconds turn on your modem, after 30 seconds turn on your router and after another 30 seconds turn on your computer. Try to access the router now. This also helps resolve other quirky router issues.
-Make sure all the network cables, phone lines(if using DSL) and coaxial cables(cable/Broadband) are plugged in and secured firmly.

-If you set up a password and username for your routers administrative access and can't remember it, you can reset the username and password back to factory default by performing a factory reset. On most routers this can be achieved by pressing and holding the small reset button on the back of the router for 15 seconds. Please reference router user manual for more information.

I hope this article was informative. Thanks for reading.

Can't remember my wep password


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. 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.

Can't find my WAP key


Do you mean WEP key? Because common keys to a router are WEP and WPA keys.

Well if you are talking about it you have 2 options:

1- Reset router configuration and reinstall all sets to your router (Is good to have a backup of it, then you can do it in a blink of eyes)
2- Find some software to help you break into your router to access it and change the WEP key. (Just use it as a way to recover YOUR router)

I lost my pass phrase and cant hook up my new laptop without it ,my router is working fine on the other computers but I just moved and can't find my notebook with password or phrase in it.....how can I...


Are you saying you cannot access your router page like 192.168.0.1 or are you saying your forget your WEP key for wireless?
If you cannot Access your Router page Then a hard reset in order and there should be a black button somewhere on the back you can press and it should reset to system defaults, the password should be admin
If you dont remember your Wep key, go to your Router Page open it up And turn off the Internet security then Turn it back on while changing the password

Finding WEP key


You can access the setup page of the 2wire ADSL gateway to check what is the WEP key or you can give the 10 digit code printed on the buttom of the hardware a shot if that will do the trick, now if the tech from geek squad change the security level to 128bit and configured a new 26 digit WEP key(yes WEP can be 10 or 26 digit depending on the configuration) then the only option is to access the setup pag.

WEP key recovery


Connect a computer to the router via Ethernet cable, then you should be able to log into the router to set it up by opening a web browser and putting "http://192.168.1.1/" or "http://192.168.0.1/" (without the quotes) into the address line. The default username and password is usually "admin" and "admin" or username "admin" with no password. From there you should be able to configure the router and retrieve or change the WEP key.
