Hello,
With each new router comes a new WEP KEY by default this could be found normally on the back of the router/access point near the bar code it should have something like this:
SSID: XXXXXXXX WEP KEY: XXXXXXX
If you don't find this sticker or don't have it just reset the router or connect by cable go to the web interface and copy or change the WEP Key there defined.

Hope that helps.

My Vizio HDtv WIFI shows a good signal from my Linskys router but is "unabke to connect" even though I repeatedly enter the correct pass phrase, what is wrong?


Run the Linksys Wireless Network Monitor by double-clicking this icon 3719-001.jpg at the bottom-right corner of your screen. If you don't see the Wireless Network Monitor icon, click here.

Click the Site Survey tab and select the name of your wireless network or SSID, then click Connect. In this example, we used a wireless USB adapter.
NOTE: images may differ depending on the model number of the adapter.
Step 3:
If the software is asking for a WEP key, enter the WEP key on the WEP Key 1 field.
If the software is asking for a WPA-Personal key, enter the WPA key on the Passphrase field

II have been trying to connect wirelessly my new HP lap top to an old series 600 but the computer can't connect even after entering the key. It works ok on cable.can any one help


1. your issue is due to a a wireless laptop is not compatible with the old router or
you may need a firmware upgrade.
2. the cold compute may be able to connect via a cord (Ethernet) but not wirelessly due to an outdated driver for the network card ( the card will need updated drivers also) if it is a wireless b card then the ability to us a WAP key will not be possible
because your card was designed to use WEP key.
3. a new wireless G card installed to the old PC will allow connectivity if the wireless card is backwards compatible.
4. most all PC's can connect via a Ethernet cord they are all designed that way and have not changed for the 20 or 30 years they have been in use.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

I sent my lap top in for fixing so I got it back and I am trying to connect to internet and it states it needs a WEP or WPA Network Key address to type in can you help me with this? my other email is...


1. Your router is the issue. It is asking for the WEP password or Network Key.
This is set up in the Wireless router.
You either know the password or have it written down.
If you are the administrator of the the router and don't remember the password or user name you will have to reset the route to factory default settings and go through the setup wizard and choose and create and save a new user name and password / WEP/WAP key. Consult your router cd for the instruction set. It will walk you through.

Trying to get on internet but its asking for a wep key or a wpa key I just completed hook up to netgear router have desk top and a wirerles lap top laptop is asking for info


The WEP and WPA key is configured in the router's wireless settings.
WPA is a stronger encryption than the older WEP encryption, I suggest you use WPA or better still WPA2.
To secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and the wireless card in the computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have a wpn824-2 and I am trying to set up a connection from my lap top. It is asking me for a network key or wep key. Where do I find it?


You can get the WEP or Network Security Key from the Router.

Login to the Router as follows (make sure that it is connected to the Computer using LAN-Wired connection):

1. Start the Web Browser like Internet Explorer or Firefor or Safari.

2. Type 192.168.1.1 as the URL.

3. Type "admin" as user name and as "password" as password.

4. Go to the "Wireless Settings" option.

5. Set the Wireless Network Password (either WEP or WPA key) will be listed next to Security Encryption.


You may also use any third party utility to get the Wireless Security key save in the Computer (in which wireless connection is working and key is saved).


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Laptop not responding to my belkin


You would have to login to the router and see what the encryption level is, i.e. WEP or WPA, then you should see a obscure key checkbox, uncheck it to see the plaintext of the passphase, if the checkbox is unchecked when you log in then you should be able to see exactly what they are... Hope this helps!

Trying to connect lap top


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.

Connecting lap top


If this is a new router you will find everything you need in the router's manual. You will need that to set up the WEP key. If the router has been used wirelessly before, then you will need the WEP key to set up the connection through the windows wireless connection wizard. If you don't know the WEP key, you will have to connect to the router with a cat-5 cable and access the router that way with your internet browser to find the WEP key, or generate a new one. You'll need to type in the router's IP address in the address bar of the browser.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
