Finding your WEP key


Samantha, ...

the only security methods supported on your N300 Router are WPA-PSK, and WPA2-PSK. The WEP security (you mention) is not supported by WPS. Go back into your settings and choose WPA or WPA2.

I have a lexmark X6690. I am trying to set it up wireless but can not find the 'pin number' could you tell me where to look? Steve D


The "pin" number is actually the Wireless security. It comes from the router. If you're using WEP encryption, it's a 10 or 26 hexidecimal code (0-9 A-F) that is not case sensitive. If you're using WPA, then it can be any 8-64 character password that is case sensitive. Whoever set up your routner will have the code, or if it's WEP you can usually read it by logging into the router. If it's WPA, you'll have to generate a new code...at least that's the case in Netgear and Linksys routers.

My computers wireless security is WPA, but im trying to change it to WEP security. I have a netgear router, type WGR614v7.


WHY??
WEP is not very secure, it is very easy to bypass, you should be using WPA2.
You can log on to your router and change the security to WEP if you really want to.
Here is your manual ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/wgr614v7_ref_manual_20apr06.pdf

My system can't detect the netgear router so, I can't connect. Error is view wireless network security setting for Netgear.


The network security depends on the operating system.
Windows 2000,xp-security:WEP
Windows vista,MAC-security:WPA.If your using for eg vista and xp then choose WEP as xp wont support WPA.

Secure my netgear


First of all understand there are 2 types of security WEP(Wired Equivalent Privacy) and WPA security. WEP is older and easier to hack but is not allowed by some NETGEAR Routers.Wpa is most up to date security. Now back to your solutions follow these steps.

  1. Make sure your computer is connected by Wire to the NETGEAR System.
  2. Open Internet Explorer.
  3. Type www.192.168.0.1 OR www.192.168.1.1 n hit enter.
Now in username type "admin" and in password type "password" (unless not configured)

  1. on the left hand side click "Wireless Settings"
  2. Under " Security Options", select your desired method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
  3. choose Network key it can be anythng from 8-63 characters
  4. n Hit ENTER.
Thats it I hope i helped Take cares.

I dunno ow to secure my connection with my edimax router


You can read more about WEP and WPA in the following links:
This article explains how to configure WEP/WPA-PSK/Access list on NETGEAR Wireless router (also applicable to access points).
Note:
  • You can configure WEP or WPA. But you cannot enable both at the same time.
  • You can configure Access list and also enable WEP or WPA for additional security.
  • After you enable wireless security features on the router (or access point), you must configure your wireless clients (wireless computers) with matching settings. Your wireless clients will not be able to connect unless you configure matching settings.
  • Its recommended you enable these wireless security settings from a computer wired to the router (or access point).
Configuring WEP:
  1. Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter.
    The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
  3. Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu. n101675_image001.jpg
  4. Under Security Options, Select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)
  5. Select Authentication type as Automatic and Encryption Strength as 64-bit (or 128-bit) - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  6. Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength) and Apply the settings. Please note down these values - You must later configure your wireless computers with the same setting.

Want to secure the site


First off... a manual will help you understand your options alot easier so here is a link to it: http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/wgr614v6_ref_man_20Apr05.pdf

You did not say specifically but I assume you want to set up wireless security. This is set in the router under wireless security and you have a few options. You can use WEP or WPA security. Either one would use a passphrase. This is set on the router and on your pc. I would also suggest doing a bit of googling on wireless security basics. It will cover not broadcasting the SID, using mac filtering, WPA and WEP security.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa
