To enable WEP encryption requires configuration changes in two places the router (WL-520G) and for the network adapter on the associated with the computer expecting to use the wireless router. Do you both believe you made the appropriate changes to both devices required? The router and the computer

Another possible issue is either the router or the network adapter do not support WEP meaning the option is not possible at all.

I use the Asus WL-330ge as a network adapter for my HP Printer. This worked perfectly until I switched internet providers. I changed the IP on my printer to the same subnet as my new wireless router...


Let me state how I think you have this setup
Printer is Ethernet ---------- Ethernet (WL-330GE wireless adapter)
WL-330GE adapter >>>>>> Wireless >>>>>> New Router

eth_adapter_mode-d2r1efs5ntrf2rjwzg4ldeyi-5-0.jpg Diagram and mode is from
https://www.asus.com/Networking/WL330gE/HelpDesk_Manual/
ASUS WL-330gE user's manual in English

So I think you need to use Ethernet Adapter Mode !

The computer shown would be your printer
As you are using wireless you need to set up the wireless ssid and the wpa or wep encryption to match the new router I am guessing .
in section 4.3 advanced settings in the above manual link from ASUS.
Also the access point has an ip address by default as 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 you would have to most likely have 176.16.1.2 and the new router as 176.16.1.1 and the same subnet mask what ever it is maybe it is 255.255.255.0 then make the printer 176.16.1.5 subnet 255.255.255.0 or whatever subnet you use.
Make sure you log into the new router and alter the DHCP server to assign leases from 176.16.1.10 to 176.16.1.254 with same subnet mask.

You can reset all settings to their factory defaults manually by pushing the "Reset" button of the ASUS 802.11g AP while it is ON. Push the "Reset" button with a pen or a paper clip for about 5 seconds or until the power LED starts blinking.

I need to secure my home wirless network


1) Secure your wireless router or access point administration interface
Almost all routers and access points have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings. Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all. As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else. You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed. Without it, the only way to access the router or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.

2) Don't broadcast your SSID
Most WLAN access points and routers automatically (and continually) broadcast the network's name, or SSID (Service Set IDentifier). This makes setting up wireless clients extremely convenient since you can locate a WLAN without having to know what it's called, but it will also make your WLAN visible to any wireless systems within range of it. Turning off SSID broadcast for your network makes it invisible to your neighbors and passers-by (though it will still be detectible by WLAN "sniffers").

3)Enable WPA encryption instead of WEP
802.11's WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) encryption has well-known weaknesses that make it relatively easy for a determined user with the right equipment to crack the encryption and access the wireless network. A better way to protect your WLAN is with WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). WPA provides much better protection and is also easier to use, since your password characters aren't limited to 0-9 and A-F as they are with WEP. WPA support is built into Windows XP (with the latest Service Pack) and virtually all modern wireless hardware and operating systems. A more recent version, WPA2, is found in newer hardware and provides even stronger encryption, but you'll probably need to download an XP patch in order to use it.

4) Reduce your WL-AN transmitter power
You won't find this feature on all wireless routers and access points, but some allow you lower the power of your WL-AN transmitter and thus reduce the range of the signal. Although it's usually impossible to fine-tune a signal so precisely that it won't leak outside your home or business, with some trial-and-error you can often limit how far outside your premises the signal reaches, minimizing the opportunity for outsiders to access your WL-AN.

5) Disable remote administration

Most WL AN routers have the ability to be remotely administered via the Internet. Ideally, you should use this feature only if it lets you define a specific IP address or limited range of addresses that will be able to access the router. Otherwise, almost anyone anywhere could potentially find and access your router. As a rule, unless you absolutely need this capability, it's best to keep remote administration turned off

Thanks
Have great day

What is the password to acess to the ASUS WL-566gM Router


Default password normally "admin" without the quotes.

If you cant get in, do a hard reset of your router by pressing the small button inside the tiny hole - use a paper clip press gently for 30 seconds.

Thanks for your question

How do I get my WEP Key for my LINKSYS ROUTER


To access the web-based utility, launch the web browser on
your computer (INTERNET EXPLORER), and enter the Router’s default IP address, 192.168.1.1, in the Address field/bar. Then, press Enter. A password request screen will appear. Leave the User name field blank then default password admin. (You can set a new password from the Administration tab’s Management screen.) Click OK to continue.
The Internet Setup section configures the Router to your Internet connection. Most of this information can be obtained through your ISP/ your internet provider. Internet Connection Type Select the type of Internet connection your ISP provides from the drop-down menu. By default, the Router’s Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Configuration - DHCP, which should be kept only if your ISP supports DHCP or you are connecting through a dynamic IP address. 68be046.jpg IMPORTANT: If you are using WEP encryption, always remember that each device in your wireless network MUST use the same WEP your wireless network will not function properly.
WEP Encryption Select a level of WEP encryption, 64 bits
10 hex digits or 128 bits 26 hex digits. The default is
64 bits 10 hex digits.

Hi! there is a possibility that the wireless network of your router is secured. to check on the setup page of the router, u need to type the ip address of the router ex-192.168.1.1.. to check the ip address of the router, connect the router directly to the router and click on start, run and type cmd, dos prompt will pop up and from the dos prompt, type ipconfig/all and it will list the ip address, subnet, default gateway.. the default gateway is the routers ip address. once u got it, pull up a browser and type at the url- the ip address of the router and enter.. it will ask for the username and password, by default the username is admin and the pass, leave it blank then it will show the setup page of the router and you have to go to the wireless settings, on the wireless settings will show the type of security and password u have.. i hope this will help to solve ur concern..

Wl-520 gc


you must need to put in more than the ppoe connection type, there is the vpi =0, vci =38, then input your isp's username and password to get a connection.

 

All this must be done via the RJ45 cable and making sure that the pc's lan card is set to obtain an ip address automatically.

 

To get into the routers settings, type into your web browser either 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.0.100, as i'm not sure that actuall routers address, sometims it's on the underneath or refer to the manual.

Linksys wireless card with ASUS WL520g Router - encryption error


you have changed the network key, but why update the username and password as it should always be the same which is the one supplied to you to connect to your service providers connection, assuming you mean the security key, go to your pc and search for your network again, as it will be trying to connect to a non existant unsecured router. When it searches and finds the networks in your area, choose yours click connect and the enter password window should pop up to be entered. Go to your browser and clear old temp files and cookies in tools, internet options, restart pc and you should assuming you have put the correct settings in be online.
