Question about Actiontec (5GE583000-01) Router
I have two laptops configured for wireless access to an Actiontec GT701-WG. I would like to add an additional desktop with a new wireless card (Trendnet TEW-421PC); I would like to pull the existing WEP ID from the Actiontec. Can you help with that? Thanks Bob
Flip over your ACTIONTEC and you would see there the default wep key. If you've had it personalized before, you have to open the configuration page of your modem and check for the wep key.
To go to the configuration page, open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. that is the default address for your actiontec. type in your username and password when prompted. the usual default it ADMIN for username and PASSWORD (lowercase) for password. or you could also try ADMIN (uname)-ADMIN(pword).
click on the wireless settings icon and then click on basic security settings. scroll down on the middle of the page and you will see there your wep key.
if you are unable to open the configuration page because you forgot your username and password, you can reset your modem so that it the uname and password will go back to its factory default settings (admin/password). However, if you are using pppoe connection (authentication using username and password to connect to network) you can lose your connection and you would have to configure your router. so be careful not to press the reset button at the back.

We can't find WEP key on Actiontec router, am at their site and there's no wireless tab to choose from, any suggestions? We do run wireless from our router to desktop and laptop here in the home, so it does work. Trying to find WEP key for Nintendo DS. Please help
