A router by default is open to all network.To set a key you need to go into a browser and type 192.168.*.* depending on your router it will differ from others.Then once into your router setting you can create a password and wep key according to your wants.It is not a difficult task but you need some patience and a bit of struggling with some google help will solve this problem.

SOURCE: WEP key fro netgear DG834G v3 WIRELESS ROUTER/MODEM

Okay, first you will need to access your router (usually 192.168.0.1 or something like that) you will be asked for a user name and password. (admin password respectively if you never set these up previously)

From there you would click on Wireless Settings and scroll down to WEP Key. Whatever is typed in Key 1 is your WEP key. Write that down. Plug in those numbers for your printer and you should be go to go.

SOURCE: can remember wep or wpa key for wireless router (microsoft mn-5

Fastest solution is to connect to the router with a cable, login to the admin screen of the router, select the wireless tab or screen and you should find the key. Write it down and then update your laptop configuration with the key.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYA.

SOURCE: where is the wep key located on my virgin router

Connect your desktop computer to your Belkin router, and access the router's built-in web-server software. Then, run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to configure the router's wireless networking capabilities. As part of that process, you will be required to _create_ a "WEP-key" value. Use that value when configuring the wireless capability of your PS3.

I cant find my wep key


The WEP key is the wireless encryption key and it is configured in the wireless setup in the wireless router. I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption instead of WEP. WPA is a later and much stronger encryption method.
To secure your wireless router from unauthorized access and to configure the wireless router and the wireless card in the computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

How do i set up a secure wireless network


Enter the router setup and then wireless setup and enter a WEP key. Then make sure all your devices have that WEP key programmed. Only devices with the correct WEP key will be able to access your router.

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.

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.

If you hold the reset pin in for more than ten seconds(I always count to 15) it will do a Factory reset...this will set all back to factory specs
