Re: linksys access point 54gc

It will actually depend on the router that you are using. fro 2wire modems, if you already entered the correct wep key for the WEP KEY field just leave the passphrase blan and try to reconnect it ;)

Re: linksys access point 54gc

This WEP key will be the same as you had put into your router. Go into your router like 'http://192.168.x.x' (check the manual of your router it will give you the default ip numbers of your router configuration page. On that configuration page you will find the WEP key. Basically you can also change it from within that page.
If you have already changed the ip address of your router make sure you put instead of the one I mentioned.
Thanks Hope that helped.

Ran the set up wizard for D link 200N wireless router completed successfully but afterwards my computer didn't recognize the network. I plugged the old Linksys B router back in and it worked fine.

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Can't find my WEP or Passphrase key. Please help!

The WEP or Passphrase encryption key is in the router's wireless settings.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the USB wireless card in the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/computers can communicate with your wireless router.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Can't connect ae1000 to a WEP encrypted bg access point

To connect to a WEP or any encrypted site, you will need to know and supply to your network connection:
  • the SSID (especially if the ID is not being broadcast as an additional safety feature).
  • the exact Encryption Key (normally entered in Hex format).
  • You need to exactly specify the security type (Open, Shared, WPA or WPA2) used for your wireless WEP connection as define on the access point wireless modem/router.
Hope it helps.

Why won't it connect to the internet?

First, you will need to know the wireless settings (such as Wireless network name and Wireless security) on the wireless access-point or router.

Once you have those settings, use the WUSB54GSC wireless utility. It should show the wireless network name of your access-point. Just select the name and click connect then type the passphrase or wireless security key, if enabled.

I have a linksys wireless usb card and it is not detecting my secured wireless network after configuring it

We need to know the wireless settings on your wireless access-point/router.

Check if the SSID broadcast is enabled on the wireless access-point. If it is disabled, then you have to manually add the SSID to the wireless adapter and make sure the wireless security such as WEP or WPA keys are correct.

You may also enable SSID broadcast so that the wireless adapter will detect your wireless network.

Also, you may try to change the wireless channel to 6 or 11.

The passphrase can be found on the router setup page, where all the settings of the router can be found including the wireless security so just need to access the router setup page and get the passphrase from there...........

Wep passphrase

You will be able to get the wep key or passphrase from the wireless router or access point.

To some routers, the SSID (wireless network name) and WEP keys are found underneath the router itself. It you cannot see any, then you will need to access the setup page of the router.

This depends on what is the brand of your router.

If you let me know the brand and model I might be able to help you in checking the settings.

WUSB54GC model wireless adapter won't connect after months of use

Instead of using the passphrase use the wep key 1 that you created on the router page when you generate it using the passphrase.

Then when you try to connect using the linksys wireless monitor just leave the passphrase blank and type in the wep key1 box the key that I mentioned earlier.

No association with access point


is the access point WEP enabled? or is it public? as long as you are able to detect the access point, try and edit your profile to which you can connect.

if it is a WEP enabled access point, you should have a passphrase key to access it.

if its public...
try and use this...

hope this helps
