What is lynksysn600 wepkey?


WEP is a type of security mode for wireless networks. It is associated with a specific SSID. You have to know the WEP key to be able to use the WLAN that is protected by it. If you own the router, you can change the WEP key in the config. If you do not, you'd need to get the key from the owner.

NETWORK SSID


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Trying to get dsi to connect to the internet by using the 10 digit # on bottom on internet box as the ssid not working is this not the correct #?


The SSID is not the WEP key, it is the network name of your wireless network. If you haven't change it at all, then you will be able to see there the WEP key itself, it is case sensitive so make sure if it is in upper case, please do so. If you had change it before, then the new WEP key should be the one that you put on the WEP key box, you can check it by accessing the GUI of your modem or router from your pc and you can check it from there if the WEP key is different from the one you have in hand.

I am trying to install a wireless printer and need the wep key. Can you help please?


Hi,
Sorry no one has helped you so far but this is a common question.
The WEP Key is usually found on the wireless modem itself. Usually on the bottom of the device. This is one of the reasons that WEP is not very secure.
If for some reason its not there it can also be found by opening a browser window and loading your modem access page (usually at address 192.168.1.1 or something close to this it depends on the modem).
There, under your wireless settings you will find the WEP Key and SSID etc.
If this doesn't help please re-post with more info. Like your wireless modem make and model and we can work from there.

I need to know my wep key or ssid codes, whats the difference? i need it to set up for my ps3 online


WEP (wired equivalent privacy)

The privacy protocol specified in IEEE 802.11 to provide wireless LAN users protection against casual eavesdropping. WEP refers to the intent to provide a privacy service to wireless LAN users similar to that provided by the physical security inherent in a wired LAN.


When WEP is active in a wireless LAN, each 802.11 packet is encrypted separately with an RC4 cipher stream generated by a 64-bit RC4 key. This key is composed of a 24-bit initialization vector (IV) and a 40-bit WEP key. The encrypted packet is generated with a bitwise exclusive OR (XOR) of the original packet and the RC4 stream. The IV is chosen by the sender and can be changed periodically so every packet won't be encrypted with the same cipher stream. The IV is sent in the clear with each packet. An additional 4-byte Integrity Check Value (ICV) is computed on the original packet and appended to the end. The ICV (be careful not to confuse this with the IV) is also encrypted with the RC4 cipher stream.

WEP has been widely criticized for a number of weaknesses:

Key management and key size
Key management is not specified in the WEP standard; without interoperable key management, keys will tend to be long-lived and of poor quality. Most wireless networks that use WEP have one single WEP key shared between every node on the network. Access points and client stations must be programmed with the same WEP key. Since synchronizing the change of keys is tedious and difficult, keys are seldom changed. Also, the 802.11 standard does not specify any WEP key sizes other than 40 bits. 

The IV is too small

WEP's IV size of 24 bits provides for 16,777,216 different RC4 cipher streams for a given WEP key, for any key size. Remember that the RC4 cipher stream is XOR-ed with the original packet to give the encrypted packet that is transmitted, and the IV is sent in the clear with each packet. The problem is IV reuse. If the RC4 cipher stream for a given IV is found, an attacker can decrypt subsequent packets that were encrypted with the same IV or can forge packets.

Weakness: The ICV algorithm is not appropriate
The WEP ICV is based on CRC-32, an algorithm for detecting noise and common errors in transmission. CRC-32 is an excellent checksum for detecting errors, but an awful choice for a cryptographic hash. Better-designed encryption systems use algorithms such as MD5 or SHA-1 for their ICVs. 

Authentication messages can be easily forged

SSID (Service Set IDentifier)
The SSID (Service Set IDentifier) is a token which identifies an 802.11 (Wi-Fi) network. 


The SSID is a secret key which is set by the network administrator.

You must know the SSID to join an 802.11 network. However, the SSID can be discovered by network sniffing. By default, the SSID is part of the packet header for every packet sent over the WLAN.
SSID Security Issues

The fact that the SSID is a secret key instead of a public key creates a key management problem for the network administrator. Every user of the network must configure the SSID into their system. If the network administrator seeks to lock a user out of the network, the administrator must change the SSID of the network, which will require reconfiguration of the SSID on every network node. Some 802.11 NICs allow you to configure several SSIDs at one time.
Default SSID's

Most 802.11 access point vendors allow the use of an SSID of "any" to enable an 802.11 NIC to connect to any 802.11 network. This is known to work with wireless equipment from Buffalo Technologies, Cisco, D-Link, Enterasys, Intermec, Lucent, and Proxim. Other default SSID's include "tsunami", "101", "RoamAbout Default Network Name", "Default SSID", and "Compaq".
Disabling SSID Broadcasting

Many Wireless Access Point (WAP) vendors have added a configuration option which lets you disable broadcasting of the SSID. This adds little security because it is only able to prevent the SSID from being broadcast with Probe Request and Beacon frames. The SSID must be broadcast with Probe Response frames. In addition, the wireless access cards will broadcast the SSID in their Association and Reassociation frames. Because of this, the SSID cannot be considered a valid security tool.
An SSID by any other name

The SSID is also referred to as the ESSID (Extended Service Set IDentifier).


Airsnort, Aircrack 2.1, Cain & Abel are some of the wireless packet sniffing tools which can decode the authorization key.

WIRELESS ISSUES


there are few options to test
Option 1) Check if the SSID and WEP key in the modem page
tally with your logon SSID or WEP key, because
limited connectivity issue happens when SSID and
WEP does not match
Option 2) Restart your modem
Option 3) Check wirings on telephone line , replace tephone line
with another telephone line and make sure the socket
plugged in from the telephone line is a BB tel number
and service has been paid promptly every month
Option 4) Change the wireless channel in the modem page to
detect the wireless device from 9-11 at 192.168.1.254
address in Internet explorer
Option 5) Bring laptop closer to the modem and ensure wireless
led on the modem is lighted and the wireless led from
the Laptop is enabled

Adding another computer to network


You can have 4 PCs connecting to your 2 wire 2701hgv or 2700hgv wired or wirelessly. Make sure the DSL light and the internet light is green and lighted up
For wired connection, just plug in the RJ45 cable to the ethernet 1,2,3, or 4 and the other end of the RJ45 cable on your laptop LAN card or network adaptor
For wireless connectivity, SSID is 2wire followed by the last 3 digits of the SN(or serial number) and the WEP key is located at the bottom of the 2wire modem in between 2 bar codes in square brackets. If the WEP key and the SSID was changed before in the modem page, go to the modem page and see what is the latest SSID and WEP key using RJ45 cable connected
