Whenever I need my WEP key, I log into my router. Try typing this into your browser address bar.
It may be different depending on your router / modem.

You'll then need your router's username and password.
The default could be: "admin" and "admin"
Once you gain access, the WEP key should be immediately visible or you may have to go to the wireless section.

I have play station 3 how should it show up when checking should it be under a WEP Key I do not understand how all this works I just want to make sure everything is done right so I don't have

The PS3 has 2 different ways it can connect. The first, and most reccomended, is by a ethernet cord to your router directly. The second, is by wifi. When you connect wifi, you go to network settings, it will suggest wired but you can continue with wifi connection, then select "wireless". It will ask you to auto scan, or manually put in the SSID. Select "Auto" then when your router info shows up, it will ask for the security info (WEP) this is where you enter the security code that you use for all of your devices that use the wireless connection. If the key is correct, it will ask you to test your connection. Everything is automatic from there.

What is a wep key?

In Shared Key authentication, the WEP key is used for authentication. A four-way challenge-response handshake is used:
  1. The client station sends an authentication request to the Access Point.
  2. The Access Point sends back a clear-text challenge.
  3. The client has to encrypt the challenge text using the configured WEP key, and send it back in another authentication request.
  4. The Access Point decrypts the material, and compares it with the clear-text it had sent. Depending on the success of this comparison, the Access Point sends back a positive or negative response.

I try to make my radio connect to the internet and when i say that i have a wireless connection and i type in my wireless passkey it accepts it but when it tries to connect it says it is unable to get IP.

I had this problem. Let me give some background. I was listening to my radio, to an internet radio station. There was a power surge/blip - a big thump. My radio is in the bedroom and the computer and router are in the living room. The power surge didn't even restart the computer or router, but the radio stopped playing the streaming station. I restarted the radio and it would not get an ip. I restarted the computer, router, and also my netbook that connects wirelessly. The netbook connected to the router and got an ip using the existing WEP key. I reset the radio and re-entered the WEP key into the radio setup and it still would not get an ip. I unplugged the radio and let it sit for a while hoping it would reset. Started the radio back up, entered the WEP key and still it did not get an ip. I went into my router software thru the computer and it actually showed the radio as an unassigned guest (or some weird nomenclature), so I knew the radio was connecting to the router it just wasn't getting an ip. So I went into the router manual setup function and re-entered the WEP key (the same key that I have been using). Before I exited the router maintenance program I looked at status and it had already assigned an ip to the radio. So somehow the power surge corrupted the WEP key data in the router. I went back into the bedroom and hit the OK button on the radio to "request an ip" and it connected immediately. So I am sorry for the long answer, but this may help someone in the same situation. I know in the future that if I run into this type of problem, that I will first re-enter the WEP key thru the manual setup in the router first!!! Thanks.

Cant find my wifi code to open a network

Your WEP is the security key you set in your router to allow other authorised devices to access your network. When you set it up, you set the WEP to protect your network from others accessing it without the key. So now all you have to do is set the WEP (security) key in your laptop the same as your router and you're cookin'. The same key must be used to connect any thing, iPhone, Wii, Play Station, anything that has WiIFi capabilty.

Its a xbox wireless network adapter what is a WEP key where do i fine this

The WEP is the encryption key that is configured in the wireless settings of your wireless router.
I recommend you configure your wireless router with WPA encryption as WEP is an old encryption method and it is easy to hack into.

I can't find the WEP code and need to gain access for a new computer. I no longer use the computer where the software was originally loaded. Can i get the software to download from a website? or how can I...

to get the WEP key , you will need to access the routerset up. the WEP kwy is the security password for your wireless network and that is set up on your router. Do you have any other computer connected to the router? If not then connect 1 computer to teh router. open the set up page of the router and you will get the wep key.

You can locate the Wireless Network Security key (WEP key) by login to the Access Point or Router.

Or using any third party utilities which will scan the saved WEP key from the Computer.

Good Luck!!!!!!!

Wep key

it all depends. There is usually a way to set it if you connect directly to the router, with a cable, then open up the website
When you open that up, you will basically be viewing your router's web page, and in the wireless security settings you can manually set your WEP key. these settings are in different places for different routers, but that's the general idea.
