    To clarify, you are switching to WEP from WPA on the WBR-100 because you suspect this will allow your Nintendo DS to connect to it?



    First thing I would do is disable any sort of encrytio scheme whatsoever and THEN try to connect with your DS. If that fails, then it is likely you have one of the routers that just won't talk to the DS, and there are quite a few of them.



    Once you have successfully connected using no encryption, then turn on wep in the setup of the router and configure your DS for the same.

1) Click on the homenetwork icon.
2) Click on wireless settings
3) Enter your system password
4) Left hand side under encryption change from WPA to WEP

SOURCE: Switch from WEP to WPA wireless protocol

First have a computer directly plugged into the 2wire

Using windows xp: click on start> then run> then type "cmd" and hit enter.
Type "ipconfig" and hit enter.
You are looking for a default gateway address, usually "192.168.1.254" on 2wire gateways.

Skip the vista section if you are using xp
Using Windows Vista: click start> then click on the search bar and type "cmd" and hit enter.
Type "ipconfig" and hit enter.
You are looking for a default gateway address, usually "192.168.1.254" on 2wire gateways.

Once you find the gateway address, you now have the website address you need to get to your 2wire. Open internet explorer and type that default gateway address in the address bar.

This should take you to a 2wire homepage. At the top click on the "home network" or "local network" tab at the top.
Once there, click on the wireless network link at the top. It will prompt for a password, if you do not know the password, click I forgot for a hint. Click I still cannot remember if the hint doesn't help, it will ask for a system key, which is a 10-digit number on the bottom of the 2wire.

After entering the password you will be in the wireless settings window where you can change the security type to any available that the 2wire has, if it doesn't have it available call the provider and see if they have a firmware upgrade available.

You can see the WEP key at the side or bottom of your modem. Its the 10-digit code. If it is not listed there, you need to access the Setup Page of Motorola modem. Go to internet explorer and type http://192.168.1.254

Cannot find the wep key for my nintendo ds on the 2wire router


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.

I cant haave internet on my ds lite


Nintendo DS handhelds will not work with WPA wireless encryption, only with WEP, or with unprotected wifi networks (not advised).
Check your router settings to see if they conform with the encryption allowed with the DS.

Heyy guys just wanting to hook my DS lite to the wifi but i need to add it to the network with the mac adress and whats a wep key


> WEP

Wired Equivalent Protocol is a method of encrypting "over-the-airwaves" transmission of data from one wireless device (your DS-LITE) to another wireless device (your router).

You need to connect a computer to the router, and then configure the "wireless networking" part of your router:
* set an SSID (the name of your network)
* set an encryption level (use 'WPA', not 'WEP')
* set a password

Enter the SSID and the password onto your DS-LITE, to make the wireless connection.

Ipod touch 2nd gen


Can you please tell us more specifically what the main problem is? To my understanding, it is a wireless connectivity problem with your iPod Touch. It's just a simple to check. Go to Wireless Network Settings or Wi-Fi settings of your iPod. Make sure it can see or detect the signal from your 2Wire. You'll just need to manually connect to it and enternet WEP key or Network key which you can find at the bottom or side of your 2Wire modem. That's the 10-digit code. If you have it entered, check the TCP/IP settings of your iPod, make sure the IP Address is set to Automatic or DHCP as well as the DNS Servers. That should fix it.

Laptop doesn't recognize printer[c-7280]


For wireless security you can select WEP or WPA security. Some are specific lengths but within reason you can choose your own. Set in on the router first then on the computer. You may need to set up the router with a wired connection

Nintendo ds


WPA is a very secure method of protecting the connection between your device and the router. I would guess that the DS will only support WEP, which is a much less secure encryption system.

If you want to connect your DS you will need to log on to the router and enable WEP security.

You will then need to enter the password you set in the previous stage in to the DS.
