Twher can i find my wap pass phrase


The WPA encryption key is in the wireless setting of your wireless router.
Some later modelwireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID alreadyconfigured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label onthe bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.

Tip

What is a WEP Key?


Wireless networks broadcast messages using a radio and are thus more susceptible to eavesdropping than wired networks. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the first in a line of increasingly secure algorithms that include WPA and WPA2 used to secure IEEE 802.11 wireless networks.

Setting WEP up is usually done from the wireless security tab of your router configuration, this is most often accessed from your computer using the web address http: 92.168.1.1 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.

Newer routers allow this configuration to be done through a visual application as well.

How do i get a pass phrase for my hp photosmart pluse


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, wireless printer and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops, wireless printer and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Need to secure my 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 can set up encryption on your wireless network using this screen. 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 computers. After the first time the computer connects to the secured network it should automatically remember the security code. I hope this advice helps you out.

I am trying to connect my wireless printer to the router, but when it comes to the WEP code, the one I have does not work. Is there a way to reset the WEP code?


Hi glenncj,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
You can also reset the router by pressing the Reset button at the back of it for 15-30 seconds using a Pen and a Paper Clip.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Not able to connect the sons Nitendo DSi to the internet. They are asking for the WEP Key but on my home hub there is only a WPA Key. BT have told me to connect to you to ask for support.


If your using WPA and your Nintendo DS only supports WEP Encryption theres no way you can connect it to the internet. WEP encryption is different from WPA.

WEP key uses hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F or ASCII format. The ASCII format is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to HEX over the network.

Example of WEP key encryption are:

*64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (12345678FA is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (456FBCDF123400122225271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
*64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length (DMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (2002HALOSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

WPA Key is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

To resolved the issue you have an option to change the WirelessSettings on your router to WEP instead of WPA since WEP is also a secured netwrok. however you need to keep in mind that if you change the encryption you need to configure all othere device connected to the router via WPA and change the settings to WEP.

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!

Need help or walk through on wireless security .? how and where do i look for information about my security lock and pass word.


The Wireless Security is as follows:

1. Pick a name, phrase, that you'll remember. for myself I use Jason and the Star Commanders - and I will cycle the words around on a monthly/bi-monthly basis depending upon systems connecting.

The KEY that can be delivered to you is going to be either 64 or 128 bit encryption. The longer the word (multiple words work very nicely) the better the encryption (the more unbreakeable).

Most public & private systems use this method, they just don't tell you. One of my all time favorites is Bazooka (after the bubble gum!)

2. Enter this Phrase into : PASS PHRASE and the web interface will create a WEP Key for you. Copy this KEY down and bring it to the PC/Laptop that you wish to wirelessly connect.

* Ok, I admit, I am not giving you the exact steps due to the nature of this website.

3. Enable WEP access, as well as your SSID (other screen), fix the data rate for AUTO or 6Mb, etc. Channels are only used if you are dealing with multiple routers with the same SSID.

4. Upon initial connection to wireless device (laptop, desktop, etc) you will need to enter the KEY (and possibly confirm) upon connecting - it is not case sensitive, but as a standard, just enter in lower case.

If you need further assistance, or a clearer walkthrough the process, please do not hesitate to call 906-495-1707, generally available till midnight eastern time.
