You can reset the wireless router simply by pressing the little button in the back of the router for 15 seconds (using a pen or needle). This will reset the entire router back to default where the "admin" username and blank password will work. To reinstall, just go to Linksys website and download the software for your brand. It will walk you thru easy setup and will take you approximately 5 minutes to reinstall.

How do I find my network key (WEP or WPA Key)? I am using a D-Link WBR-1310 Wireless router.


Try connecting your pc hardwired to the router. Then open up internet explorer and type in 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. You'll be forwarded to the interface of your router. If it asks you to login, make use of "admin" the username and "password" as the password or if it doesn't work use "admin" as well for the password. Once your logged in, click on wireless setup then click manual wireless setup and look for network key. That is the WEP or WPA key that your looking for.

I have G604T rounter, but I could not find a WEP key, all I can find is P/N, S/N, and MAC. Where is the WEP Key? That is why I could set a wireless network. Thank you for your help.


Hi,
Th WEP Key is in the GUI of the Router.
You will need to get the Routers Default Gateway to get in the Routers setting to be able to find the WEP key.
Try typing 192.168.1.1 on your Internet Explorer Browser then press Enter this will ask you for a user name and password to get in the D-link Router that info may change if you changed it or possibly the ISP if the router was provided by the ISP.
Try Username: admin Password: password
User Name: admin Password: admin
User name: admin Password:
then press Enter try any of the combinations, don't worry this will not lock your router, if you get an Error 404 that is ok just type in the Default Gateway again.
In the Router Settigns you can find the WEP key under Security.
I hope this helps.

I upgraded the hard drive ram and OS on a 3 year old macbook core 2 duo. Now it won't connect to my wireless network. It will connect to wireless network at the local coffee shop. I have tried rebooting...


All you need to correct is entering in the WEP key for the wireless network- you will connect, but will be unable to browse wirelessly otherwise. The WEP key is found on the bottom of the actiontec- unless you changed it to something else- at which point you would need to log into the modem to find out your WEP key.(192.168.1.1 on a working computer in internet explorer/safari/firefox, un/pw admin, password or admin, admin; wireless settings)

You need to login to your router GUI by logging into IE or Windows Explorer - Address bar = 192.168.1.1 , Username: Admin password: Admin
> reconfigure wireless SSID and WEP or security from there

( please check router manual for more info or at www.linksys.com)

Can not get the second laptop on the internet with the wireless


The post says he has a router "linksys wireless-g access point router" ???

If it is only an Access Point then Joed is correct you need the router to access your broadband with more then 1 PC

If you have a wireless access router then here are the instructions:-
Easy Solution (you should be so lucky)
Sometimes the value for the Wireless Key is written on the underneath of the router, look for SSID (this is the network name) and WEP or WPA key (called the encryption key)

Alternative Method
In order to find out your Wireless Network Key you must first use a cable to connect to your router.

Once connected check that you are connected to the internet by opening Internet Explorer

The address or the router is usually one of the following values:-

http://192.168.0.1
http://192.168.1.1
http://10.10.0.2
http://192.168.2.1
http://192.168.2.254

Try clicking on each and see if you get a logon box popping up

If you do, that is the correct address for your Wireless router, note it down.

If the box has the username and password completed, then click OK

If there is no value for username try "admin" and for the password try one of the following "password", "admin",

Also try nothing for the username and "admin" for the password

Sometimes the value for these are written on the underneath of the router

Once the router page is displayed, look for an item called Wireless Settings.
Next see if a further option for Wireless Security exists.
The names of these items vary from Router to Router

Once security is displayed the SSID (Network Names) and the WPA or WEP Key can be found.
If there is no security I would set it to WPA or WEP then the original computer connecting will need this value if it is connecting wirelessly

How do I find out my wep key


Looks like you will have to login to the router from the other computer to find the key.
Usually, the address to the router admin screens is one of the following:
192.168.0.1 Linksys
192.168.1.1 NetGear
192.168.10.100 Motorola
Generally 192.168.1.1 will work for most.
Default Login:
Login = admin
Password = password (default - if this doesn't work, then you will need to find it or initialize the router)
Go to the WEP security Screen
NetGear EXAMPLE:
Security Encryption (WEP)
Authentication Type *Automatic*
Encryption Strength *64bit* (64 bit is sufficient - the network overhead is less than 128 bit)
Security Encryption (WEP) Key (The active key below is marked with *)
Passphrase *Blank*
Key 1 abcdabcdab (64 bit examples = 10 hex digits 128 bit will be longer string)
Key 2 dcbadcbadc
Key 3 123456789a
Key 4 *Blank*
Click logout when finished

LinkSys Example:

Wireless Network Menu
Wireless Network Mode Mixed
Wireless Network Name (SSID) MyWireless
Wireless Channel 7 - 2.442 GHZ
Wireless SSID Broadcast Enable
Wireless Security
Security Mode WEP
Default Transmit Key 1 (This is the active key)
WEP Encryption 64 bits (or 128 bits)
Passphrase
Key 1 abcdabcdab
Key 2 dcbadcbadc
Key 3 123456789a
Key 4
There is no logout for the LinkSys. Just disconnect

Linsky password


If you're after the default userR/password to log in to the admin-intaserface on the router it's usually ussername=root and password=admin

If it's the wep-key it's asking for there are software that can fetch this from your computer, but it's probably just as quick and easy to change the wep-key in the router and set up your writeless computers with that key.
