If you don't know it, you will need to reset the router. That will set it back to the defaults which is unencrypted. Then go into the configuration and set a new code. There should be a recessed button you depress for 10 seconds or so to reset to defaults. Then you can connect in the open via wireless or connect via wired. The web management page is at 192.168.1.1 I believe for a linksys. The user id is usually admin with a password that is blank, the word admin, or the word password. Download the manual for your model for more detailed setup instructions.

Sir, you are the one who's going to make the wep code or password. To view this, go to the configuration screen of your router then wireless tab and under it click wireless security.

It has probably been a while since you set up the security options on your Linksys router, and chances are, you've forgotten or lost the WEP key.
Luckily, you can easily recover this security code when you need it.
A base computer and a printer are required for this task.

Open a Web browser on your base computer.
Navigate to the Linksys setup menu by typing "http://192.168.1.1" into the browser's address bar and pressing "Enter."
This is the router's LAN address.


Locate the "Security" tab near the top of the window.
Clicking on this tab unlocks your WEP code, so to speak the code is now displayed on the screen.

Print this screen by clicking "File" and then "Print" on your browser's toolbar.
Verify that the entire page printed correctly and that no digits are missing from the end of the WEP key.
If any numbers are missing, fill them in.

Type in your WEP key when prompted by the wireless setup screens on other computers in your network.
This will allow the computers to access your local network and the Internet.

Return to the base computer and close out of the Linksys setup screen by clicking the red "X" in the upper right corner of the application window.

What is 2wire136s wep code?


You can turn the router upside down. If you see a 10 digit number on the router then try that number.

If there is no 10 digit number then you will need to check the settings on the router.

Try this link to find the WEP key from the router

Wireless security


I think you should upgrade the firmware on your router.
After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
I will also suggest you to create a new wireless network and use security modem WPA.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.

I can't locate my WEP key for BEFSR41 router. When I entered 192.168.1.1 it asked for userid and password. I tried 'admin' under each of those lines (leaving other blank) and neither worked....


Hi chrismoore,

Welcome to Fixya. 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.

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

Where can i find HEP code for linksys router?


It's known as a WEP Code:
Open up Internet Explorer and type in the address bar "192.168.1.1", do not use the "http://www.".

On the Linksys website, click on Wireless, then Wireless Security, then look for the WEP key. If it asks you for a password, it should be "admin".

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.

Wep key for ps3


you will need to obtain your wep key no matter what...you can get it from whoever your router company is (if it is a linksys then call the linksys support number and obtain the key) in most cases thought the wep key is located on the router itself near the bar code. It will be a long number, When you get it and enter it in to the network settings then it should pick up the signal

Lost box and WEP codes


The most popular wep code is your phone number. if that doesnt work do OHIOTOM's solution. If you need to reset the router, do it this way. PUSH THE RESET BUTTON AT THE BACK OF THE ROUTER FOR 30 SECONDS, UNPLUG POWER FOR 10 SECONDS. NOTE; THIS WILL SET YOUR ROUTER TO FACTORY DEFAULT. If the router is reset, you have to configure it again. This time you can set up a new wep code.
