How to change wep security key

I think a neighbor has hacked into my Westell Versalink 327W wireless network. I would like to change the security settings. I called Centurytel and they had me make changes that only screwed up my entire network. Took me 2 hours to get back to original. Tried changing to WEP key 2 and entering a new key # but lost wireless connection. Compaq laptop will not connect. I find the network and I enter the new key # but no connectivity. Where did I go wrong?

Re: How to change wep security key

Hi, sometimes if changes was done you need to recofingure you're wireless all over especially if the key has been saved on your pc to be rembered, you could actually reset your router and configure it by going to your routers gateway by doing an ipconfig you'd be able to see the gateway..launch it in your browser n youd be able to access the configuration of the versalink...i could actually give you more detail though im in a hurry, better you call your isp provider or bellsouth now att since westell versalink are manufactured by them and they give great tech support for connectivity problem...

My grandpa set up our wireless network a few years ago, but bless his heart, he passed away just this year and we forgot our WEP key and we need to reset it or just get ahold of it so the family can access...

Sorry for your loss.
  • Note: Resetting your router to the factory defaults not only changes your gateway user name and password to the factory default values, but it also deletes all your home network settings. This includes the SSID and network encryption key. After you reset your gateway to the factory defaults, your home network won't be accessible until you reconfigure your router and all your network devices to use the same SSID and network encryption key.

To reset your VersaLink 327W gateway to the factory settings:
Hold the reset button on the back panel of the VersaLink gateway for 30 seconds.
  • All your settings will be lost including network encryption information, MAC Address filtering information, and any SSID information you have entered.
  • The gateway user name and password will revert to the default of Admin as the user name and Password as the password.
  • You will need your user name or password to reconfigure the unit..

Your VersaLink 327W gateway is now using the default settings for the network configuration. This includes the default SSID and network encryption key. You must re-configure your VersaLink gateway to match your previous settings that were assigned to all other devices on your wireless network. Otherwise, no other network devices will be recognized.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I need to enable security protection on my Westel 327W dsl router

You need to access the router and find security settings and look for WEP encryption, follow the steps as outlined for full security.

Note also that any existing users will need to type in this encryption key to access the network.

I lost the security code for my westell 327w. need to find code so i can add another computer.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router .
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then connect 1 computer to the router and open the router set up page. Once you open the router set up page, you will be able to find the wireless network key.
Use that password to connect to the wireless network

I need wep key westell model 327w

Unfortunately, no one could not provide you any WEP key. WEP is a key that you set to your router so that no one could connect to your wireless network. As an owner of the network, you should know what your network key was.

If you forgot your WEP key, you need to reset the router to factory default, configure it and set a new WEP key.

That is the only way. Thank you!

WEP password for Westell 327w

v\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} o\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} p\:* {behavior:url(#default#VML);} .shape {behavior:url(#default#VML);} v\:textbox {display:none;} Slide 1 .O {color:black; font-size:149%;} .O1 {color:black; font-size:149%;} a:link {color:#CCCCFF !important;} a:active {color:#3333CC !important;} a:visited {color:#B2B2B2 !important;} Open Internet Explorer & in the URL:// bar type: or dslrouter.

Select Wireless and then select Security from the Configuration

If you use WPA-PSK or WEP
wireless security, you must configure your computer’s wireless adapter for the security code that you use.

At the Wireless Security drop-down menu, select the desired security option

WEP: Selecting this will enable you to set up WEP security on the VersaLink. The AP card
supports 64-bit, 128-bit, or 256-bit WEP encryption. If WEP is selected, any station can connect to the AP (as long as its SSID matches the AP SSID). If wireless security is disabled, the risk of someone nearby accessing the AP is maximized

type in the desired WEP not forget to save...

We've misplaced the WEP key for our VersaLink 327W modem. Where would I find it?


Logon: [or type in: "launchmodem" no quoted - one word] > Click: Wireless tab > Click: Configure Wireless > In the Wireless SSID: This box will show your WEP key.

(Enter any administrative user name and password if you have security locked to access the "Configure Wireless" zone.)

[This is different from the account name and password used to sign on to your ISP and it may not even be set. Is security is not activated, you will freely pass into the Configure Wireless zone.]

Good luck,

Westell model 327w

you can run another ethernet cable from your westell modem to your laptop. hence, if you want your laptop to connect wirelessly, it must have a wireless card/adapter inside. if it already has a wireless adapter, it should automatically detect your wireless network and you just need to connect to it (note: you need to enter the correct wireless security/network key if you have enabled it on your modem). by default the serial number is the ssid of the router and the wireless security is disabled. but if you are not sure of your wireless security, log on to the modem's web user interface by typing on your web browser's address. then go to the wireless section and verify your wireless settings from there.

hope this'll help you.

Westell versalink 327w i need default password

If the 327 was never set up for wireless you need to connect to it with an Ethernet cable and plug that into your Mac and one of the RJ45 ports on the back of the 327. Type into your browser, this should take you to the Westell Home Page (Your Router). The default for wireless in this router is disable. There are tabs across the top on the page, select Configuration>Wireless>Basic. This opens the Wireless Operation Window. If Wireless is disabled, click arrow to enable. You can also enable and disable encryption in this same window and if you choose to use the basic WEP in the device, the WEP key is on the label on the bottom of the router. If all this is good your laptop should be able to detect the wireless connection, the default is the serial number on the bottom of the router so you will know which connection is yours. REMEMBER TO CLICK SAVE before exiting the window! Hope this helps.
