If you don't have the manual, you can download it here.
Look at page 11 onwards.

1. Log on to your router:

  • type http://192.168.1.1 in the URL bar of your browser
  • default username and password: admin/admin

2. Go to Wireless -> Interface and you will find the WEP key there.

Just a note on security:

You should try NOT to use WEP, since it is not secure anymore.(Just google "hack WEP" and you will get over a million results...)
If your wireless cards a capable, try to use WPA2/PSK, which is the best protocol and the strongest encryption.
Tip: Use a random string of characters (like H98yh&VOrh... you get the idea). Save the Network key in a text document and copy it to a USB stick, so you don't have to enter it manually into your wireless computer.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

How do i find out my wep key password


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need your Wep Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key (Wep Key) or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

What is a wep key, and where will i find it, for setting up xbox 360 thanks


WEP stands for Wireless Encryption Protocol and it is the wireless key for your router.
The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key
You will need to find the WEP key in your router's administration page and then enter it on your xbox under the system settings then network settings.

How do i locate my wep key on my computer i don't remember it


Hey you will not be able to locate the WEP key on any computer.
If you have the information saved on the document then you can find that document. otherwise you will not be able to find it on any computer.
This information is saved on the router interface. you will need to open the set up interface of the router.

I have a netgear wireless router, I also have a new PS3, I want to access the internet via the PS3 but have lost my WEP key for the router. Whats the easiest way of finding the WEP key Thanks Darren


wep key or router administrative password?
if you have router admin password, you just go to your router settings and reset, delete all WEP key setting
(i assume one that connect to your router is only the PS3)
The setting should be web-based.
connect a pc to your router using LAN/ethernet port.
Access the router (you should know the router
ip address) via IE ex: http://192.168.0.1/
Read your router manual for details.

WEP key


what is your router? do you know the gateway of your router?

1. Know what is your gateway by using a pc that is online hardwire to your router
> On that pc- check your gateway by doing ipconfig- your DG is your gateway
2. Then access the configuration page of your router- ex. 192.168.1.1
> Use your browser and type your gateway there.
> It will ask for username and password. You should know that.
3. When your inside your router's configuration page-look for wireless tab, then look for wireless security- you should be able to see there your wep key.
4. Finally type in that wep key on your toshiba laptop. It might ask you to confirm, so type it twice. =)
