Hi

if you have forgotten your details, reset the wireless router by holding down the reset button on the back or on the bottom for 30seconds or more.

All settings and security will be turned off - returned to the factory defaults.

The network will be open, and the name will change, then you can set a new WEP key etc from the settings pages.

Setup 64bit pass phrase on Belkin router. All wireless devices say,


Do your other devices support 64bit wep, and are you selecting that as your encryption type on each device. For example I know on my cellphone I have to specify the type of encryption that is used. You might also log into the router, just to double check the encryption type and the pass phrase (even if you are spelling it right).

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 find the wep key for my smartrg modem ? Thx Ken ken.zo@myfairpoint.net


Wep stands for wireless encryption protocol. If you dont know the key the only way is for you to login to the wireless router as the admin and under the passphrase setup untick hide characters and the pass phrase will be displayed.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I'm trying to find my wep key or port number, I'm trying to connect my PS3 to the internet.


When you purchased the router, you should have run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard" to configure the router, to set an SSID, to set an encryption-level (use 'WPA' not 'WEP'), and to set a password (WPA-key or WEP-key or pass-phrase).

Use those values that you used when you configured your router to configure your PS3.

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.


Thanks for using Fixya

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!

How do I enter the WEP encryption on my router


Configuring WEP:
1.Connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the Belkin wireless router.
2.Open your web browser and type the router IP address of the router (by default, the address is http://192.168.2.1.) in the address bar and press Enter.
3.Click Login on the top of the page to login to the router. By default the Password is left blank, click Submit.
4.Click Security under Wireless menu.

5.Under Security, Select 64 bit WEP (or 128 bit WEP).
6.Select Key 1 and enter any 10 hexadecimal digits - any combination of 0-9, A-F (26 digits if you selected 128-bit as the encryption strength). You may also enter a pass phrase and have the router generate a key for you.
7.Apply the settings. Please write down the key – You will need it later to configure your wireless computers with the same key.
