The WEP encryption key is configured in the wireless router.
Go to the router's wireless configuration to view this key and you can then configure the wireless card with this encryption key.
If you cannot see the key you can setup a new encryption key and the configure the wireless card with this 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.

I cant find my wep key


The WEP key is the wireless encryption key and it is configured in the wireless setup in the wireless router. I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption instead of WEP. WPA is a later and much stronger encryption method.

I cant get a wpa key.it always tells me wpa key has timed out or is not correct


Hello,

Thank you for using Fixya!

The WPA key can be found your router's setup page or configuration page (under wireless settings).

If you do not know how to access your router's setup page I would suggest contact your router's manufacturer to assist you on getting the WPA key. If you are connecting to other peoples wireless network then I'm afraid that is not possible unless you can ask them to provide you the key.

You can also go to www.portforward.com, to know on how to access router's setup page for different brand and model.

Hope this helps.

Thank you,

Need wpa key for xbox live


WPA key is your Wireless router key for internet access.
To connect your console to wireless internet and go to Xbox Live you must enter WPA key for your wireless router.

It`s a same key than you use to connect your Notebook, cellular phone, etc. to your home network.

Cant find my wpa # needed to reconnect my router (TM-G5240) to my x-box live account


For routers, there no way to see what the WPA key is. Once you check the Web UI of the router and check the security, all you will see are asterisks (*********). Because WPA is a security and needs to be hidden. As the owner of the router, you should always remember what your WPA key is.

In order to resolve this issue, you need to reset the router back to factory default, set up a new WPA key and save it.

Or you may contact the manufacturer of the router and see if they have a record for your router

Have a great day!
