It will be in the properties page of you modem. If you don't know the IP address of your router it can be found under Start>Control Panel>Network Connections>Wireless Network Connection>Details (it will be called the gateway). Just put that in your Internet Browser and then it will ask for a username/password(typically admin for both). Then just hunt around around for it...

Alternatively if you already have a computer that's using the WiFi, you can download a program called WZCook, that will show you all of the stored keys.

Good Luck!

Hi

the encryption key is a code between the computer and the router or say a secret language that only these two can understand. its not any password or a 16digit key that is generally provided by the manufacturer

you have to set that on the router and also the computer properly to have a proper and prim flow of communication between the comuter and the router

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

SOURCE: Can't get router to reset encryption key

you can manually reset your router to get back to manufacturer's default settings. Locate the reset hole at the back of the router and push it with a pin or anything that can be used to push the small hole button. Keep it pressed in 30 seconds to reset

SOURCE: router settings are changed itself...for example i

When you are in the configuration page of the router (where you can change the settings) are you changing the username and password? The one where a sign in window pops up before you can access the web page. Because if these aren't changed then anyone who knows the default settings can access your router and set it back to default so they can use your bandwidth.

Not saying this is happening but I have seen it many times.

Perhaps try a firmware update (if there is one). Just remember that when you do an update your router settings go back to default.

Hope this helps.

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 obtain the WEP Code for this Router? I'm trying to hook up my Internet capable LCD TV


Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1).

Click here if you cannot access the web-based configuration.

Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Click OK . Click the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.

di614_128wep.gif

Step 3 Select Enable next to the WEP radio buttons. For WEP encryption select 64, 128, or 256-bit encryption. For the Key type select HEX. If you have an option for Authentication type, select Shared Key.

Step 4 Select Key 1. Enter a Hex encryption key that you make up. The length of the encryption key will depend on what you selected under WEP Encryption.

  • 64-bit encryption 10 characters
  • 128-bit encryption 26 characters
  • 256-bit encryption 58 characters (available on DI-614+ only)


  • The encryption key is HEX, meaning 0-9 and A-F are valid characters. For example, A4583DFF1A (64-bit HEX key).

    Step 5 Click on the Apply button then click on the Continue button to save your settings.

    Note: If using non-D-Link adapters, please refer to the manufacturer´s documentation on enabling encryption.

    My pc has locked me out of the internet and i unfortunately didnt save the WEP key, the router is a NetgearWGT624 v3


    The WEP encryption key is stored in the wireless setting in the Netgear wireless router.
    Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Netgear router and open IE browser and enter the Netgear configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1) default login = admin default PW = password (type in the login password if you had changed it).
    In the wireless encryption setting note down the encryption key. Use this key to configure the wireless card in the computer.

    If you forgotten the PW then you can reset the router back to the factory configuration by using a sharp point and pressing the reset button at the back of the router until the LEDs flash, then release the Reset button.
    Then login as previously stated. You can then create a new encryption key. I suggest you use WPA2 or WPA encryption key because it is much stronger than WEP.
    I also suggest :-
    Change the default password
    Change the default SSID
    For additional wireless security - enable MAC address filtering (this allows only listed MAC addresses of wireless cards to connect to this router - add the MAC address of your wireless card to the MAC address table in the wireless router).
    Don't forget to configure the wireless card in the computer with the router's SSID and encryption key.

    WEP Encryption


    It is recommended to enable encryption on your wireless router before your wireless network adapters. Please establish wireless connectivity before enabling encryption. Note: Your network will slow down and wireless signal may degrade when enabling encryption due to the added overhead. Step 1 Log into the web configuration of the router by opening up a web browser and typing in the IP address of the router (192.168.0.1). Step 2 Enter your username (admin) and your password (blank by default). Click OK . Click the Home tab and click the Wireless button on the left hand side of the screen.
