    Netgear, what you do is download the private info from the network to a USB there the network issues a new hex key. After I did all that I found the original hex key. It prevents others to work off your router which weakens your signal. Gerry

Check the instruction manual, it sounds like you have either WEP or WPA setup here. The data transferred wirelessly will be encrypted, so it is useless without the key to decrypt it. Depending on which method is setup, will depend on how many characters you need. If it was setup by default from the box, the manual should have the default passkey in it. I would suggest you change it straight away, as anyone else with the manual could try the key to crack your link.

How do i find a key for my linksys router?


Try the following procedure on a computer that's directly connected to one of the router ports with an ethernet cable. This procedure will not work if you're connected wirelessly. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the Wireless tab and then the Wireless Security sub-tab. You should be able to see your present wireless network security key on this screen. You can also use this screen to change the key if you want.

If you want to make some changes first select the security mode you want to use.
I believe WPA gives better security but I've had some trouble using it on older computers. I use WEP. I've been able to get this encryption scheme to work with all of my computers. Next select the type of encryption. I like 128 bit 26 hex digits. Next enter a pass phrase and hit generate. The pass phrase is like a password. It should now generate four 26 character keys made up of various letters and numbers. Write down the first key and make sure you've checked the 1 box for default transmit key. Save your setting and exit. You wireless network is now secure. If you try to connect to it using a wireless device you will be prompted for a security key. Depending on the operating system you're running, you may just be able to enter the pass phrase or you may need to enter the 26 character key you wrote down. You should only have to do this once for each of your wireless devices. After the first time they connect to the secured network they should automatically remember the security code. I hope this advice helps you out.

I am using time warner cable high speed internet. and trying to connect my ps3 through a belkin router but it is not working. the wireless icon pops up from the router but what is a WPA Key??? HELP!!!


WPA === Wireless Protected Access

It's a level of encryption between the router and each wireless device, to add "security" to your wireless traffic.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on a computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.

Restart the computer.

Start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router.

From this web-interface, you can set an SSID and set the encryption-level (e.g., WPA) and you can set a password/pass-phrase/pass-key for your wireless network.

Use the same SSID and password on your PS3.

Setting secured wireless connection


You can enable WEP on your router.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.0.1 to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

Save the settings.

I hope this helps!

What is my wep key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a deprecated algorithm used to secure IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. Wireless networks broadcast messages using a radio and are thus more susceptible to eavesdropping than wired networks.

Setting WEP up is done from the wireless security tab of your router configuration, this is usually accessed from your computer using the web address http:\\192.168.1.1 by default. It consists of a pass-phrase and a key. the pass-phrase is used to generate an encryption key, this is then necessary to use any packets (Bits of data) transferred over the air.

Beginning in 2001, several serious weaknesses were identified by cryptanalysts with the result that today a WEP connection can be cracked with readily available software within minutes.[2] Within a few months the IEEE created a new 802.11i task force to counteract the problems. By 2003, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced that WEP had been superseded by Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which was a subset of then upcoming 802.11i amendment. Finally in 2004, with the ratification of the full 802.11i standard (i.e., WPA2)

HP Laptop is asking for a pharphrase to get


Sorry, clicked the wrong button.

When you are configuring the security features of your wireless router, you can choose certain encryption algorithm that requires you to enter, not a meaningless hexadecimal character string (the hex key), but a sentence or a phrase that you can easily remember. That is the pass phrase. If you are trying to configure YOUR router, you choose any meaningful, easily remembered statement (ex: the sky is blue and it is raining on Timbuktu etc.). If however you are trying to use somebody else's network, the owner of the network is the one to ask for the key.

I have internet with time warner so have linksys router wireless'but when a try to connect to other computer don,t work


First, check to make sure that you can get Internet through a wired connection, if you can't then wireless won't work either. Second, if you can, then try connecting to the wireless without using WEP or any security. You can turn this off by going to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser while wired to the router from your PC and go under wireless security. If you can connect from an unsecured access point then set up a WEP key with a pass-phrase and when you are asked for the pass-phrase from the PC use the the hex key 1 that is generated by the router instead of the pass-phrase. You should have no problem connecting. Thye wizard that comes on the configuration CD will not set up your wireless correctly, you really have to configure the system using the IP.

1. Windows not shutting down may be due to mouse incompatibility. e.g Toshiba with Logitech Mouse. Microsoft mouse works better with Toshiba in my view.

2. Set modem to NAT mode, ensure pass phrase upper and lower case preserved on your wireless machine (case sensitive).

3. Transfer WEP or WPA-PSK[TPIK] pass phrase to your Netgear Wizard as a Hex Key (Key 1).
