If you didn't choose a ssid your router did it for you.
You can find it out but detecting avialble networks either with the software that came with you router,or Microsoft's network program, whichever you are using. Anyway when you see the networks that it finds, yours' will be the one that has the most bars, the most signal strenght , and that network will be yours. Copy the number down...about 6 digits. That's one. Now the other you can get by calling your ISP (internet SERVICE provider). They can take over your computer and configure it in about two or three minutes after they have your information.
Now if you didn't pick a WEP key...your network is not secure and anyone within band range can use it. But again your ISP will help you set up the 10 digit number to make your network more secure. The long and the short,,,you shoud be on line 10 minutes after you go into action.

I need my wep key


The WEP encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
I recommend you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, it is much stronger than WEP.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

How do i secure my belikn from outsiders using it


Enable wireless security on your router, so that other people will not be able to connect to your network.

To enable wireless security, access the setup page of the router through a web browser. Type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.

By default, leave the password blank.

Once in the setup page, go to Wireless. Take note of your SSID. Then go to Security.

Select WEP or WPA, depending on the operating system and capabilities of your wireless computer. If in doubt, you may use WEP since it is the legacy wireless standard.

You can enter your WEP key manually by typing in the hex WEP key manually, or you can type a passphrase in the “PassPhrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP key from the passphrase.

Make sure to take note of the WEP key because you will be needing this for your wireless computer.

Click Apply Changes.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks, select your SSID, then type the WEP key.

I hope this helps!

I need help with my dynalink router i changed the ssid and made a wep key


If you changed your WEP encryption then you've changed your WEP key. 64 bit WEP encrytion uses a 10 charater hexadecimal key and 128 bit uses a 26 charter hex key. You can not switch between the 2 configurations and keep the same key.., although some wireless adapter utility programs will generate a new key for you from the same "passphrase". Most likely your key has changed which would give you that problem. If all else fails, set your router back to defaults (open).. and make sure everything connects... then apply your key and be sure all computers and devices use the same key
