Disabling WEP security is not a great idea, unless you plan on replacing it with WPA. As for your request, please open a Browser and enter into your address bar and hit enter. I can't seem to recall exactly where the setting is, but you will come across it if you look through the router admin page. Hope this helps.

I have 2 desktop computers and 2 wireless computers. My router is a Negear Rangemax WPN824 v2.
I am having no trouble at all with my internet connections yet when I attempt to go wireless with another new laptop I bought, a DELL Mini laptop, the laptop see's the network and shows connected and also shows I have a very strong signal but will not connect to the internet wireless and only get the page that says "Can't find server".

When I plug in an ethernet cable from the router I have no problem connecting to the internet but just can't seem to go wireless with the new laptop at home. I have zero trouble going wireless with the new laptop when I am at work with it or at Free Wi-Fi locations.

I have tried to type in my Router IP address as set up by an outside company for me initially but I only get a page that say's "Failed to connect, Cannot locate server".

I am not very computer savvy admittedly, so if you have any possible solutions to fix the problem, don't please don't skip steps assuming I would know to perform them or assume I know a lot of computer jargen. Thankyou for any help you can give.....................

see below.

How do I access the access point’s web-based setup page?
WEP KEY - trnsp.gif Answer A wired PC is a computer that you will directly connect to the access point via an Ethernet cable. The wired computer needs to have an Ethernet adapter to establish the connection to your access point.
If you’re accessing the web-based setup page of the access point, you need to do the following:

  1. Connecting the PC to LAN Port of the Access Point
  2. Assigning a Static IP address on your Wired Computer
  3. Accessing the Access Point’s Web-based Setup page
Connecting the PC to the LAN Port of the Access Point
Follow the steps below to connect the PC to the LAN port of the Linksys access point.
Take an Ethernet cable and connect it to the computer. Take the other end of that same cable and connect it to LAN or Ethernet Port at the back of the access point.
Assigning a Static IP Address on your Wired Computer
To assign a static IP address on your computer, click here.
Accessing the Access Point’s Web-Based Setup page
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your access point’s default IP Address “” and press [Enter].
NOTE: If the IP address of the access point has been changed, type the access point’s IP address in the Address bar instead.
The access point’s IP address can be changed by:
  • Running the access point s setup CD.
  • Changing it on the access point’s web-based setup page.
If you forgot the access point’s IP address you can:
  • Press the Reset button at the back of the access point for 30 seconds.
NOTE: This procedure will reset your access point to factory defaults. Any settings on the access point will be erased. The access point’s IP address will be “” and the password will be “admin” after resetting.
Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name space blank, type in your access point’s password “admin” and click OK.
NOTE: If the password of the access point has been changed, type the access point’s new password in the Password bar instead.
The access point’s password can be changed by:
  • Running the access point’s setup CD.
  • Changing it on the access point’s web-based setup page.

Specific instructions for that would require knowledge of your router's manufacturer and model. It may alsp help to know the manufacturer and model of your wireless adapters (the cimputer if the wireless adapter is built-in) configuration of all devices will need to change.

Can you try these commands to get and test the default gateway address. on any machine wired or wireless that connects to the internet.
(assumes you have Windows XP)

click Start then All Programs then Accessories then Command Prompt Enter the followig and press enter


Write down the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway for each adapter if there is more than one

Using the default gateway address(es) you received if more than one then issue the command ping followed by the default gateway address.

ping {put default gateway address here no{}}

It will either timeout 4 times or yuou will get a non timeout message with elapsed time indicating success.

I need to know if ipconfig and ping worked and what the default gateway was that worked.

Please reply with a comment to this message for the information requested.

A window will open in that window type the following command

SOURCE: WEP key recovery

Connect a computer to the router via Ethernet cable, then you should be able to log into the router to set it up by opening a web browser and putting "" or "" (without the quotes) into the address line. The default username and password is usually "admin" and "admin" or username "admin" with no password. From there you should be able to configure the router and retrieve or change the WEP key.

Let us know how you make out.

SOURCE: Need my WEP Key and can't find it

There's no way for us to tell what the exact WEP keys is set to your router. Even if you check the utility of the router, you'll just find ********. WEP is same as the password, so in order for you to have a WEP key, you need to reset the router, refer to the user manual of it and re-configure the router and set a new WEP key.

You may contact the manufacturer of your router for further assistance.

Have a great day!

If still you can't connect to the Internet, try this:
Check WEP Key. Maybe you entered in incorrectly.
If you entered the correct WEP key and it won't work, you need to change the WEP encryption key from the 13 alphanumeric combination that the router came with by default to a string of 26 Hexadecimal (Hex) characters (0-9 and A-F).

Suddenly today after working for a couple of years all the lights are on solid and my wireless laptops can not find the router

To connect to your wireless network using Vista's WLAN Autoconfig, follow these steps:
Step 1:
Right-click this icon 5449-001.png at the bottom-right corner of the screen and select Connect to a network.


Step 2:

Select your Wireless Network Name or SSID then click Connect.


If the wireless network name or your SSID is not listed, the SSID Broadcast on the router might be disabled. For instructions on how to connect to the wireless network with the SSID broadcast being disabled, click here.
If the computer is not detecting any signal or is not seeing any wireless network, change the channel of the router. For instructions, click here.
If WEP/WPA is enabled on the router:
Step 3:
Enter your wireless network WEP/WPA Key on the field provided then click Connect.
NOTE: To learn more about WEP/WPA and other Wireless Settings, click here.


NOTE: Make sure Display characters is checked, to display the WEP/WPA key used by the router. You can get the passphrase or network key from the encryption that has been generated (if using WEP network security) from the router's web-based setup page. If you're using WPA network security, the network key is the key for passphrase.

Make sure you enter the wireless network's WEP or WPA key not the Passphrase.

It is also possible to make a wireless connection even if the wireless security is disabled on your router. If you don't see any network SSID from your network list, make sure your wireless adapter/device is ON and your router is in good condition. If your router shows any unstable occurrence, click here.

The security type on the router is WEP.
In this case you will need to use the key 1. that will be the network key for your wireless network.
Check just next to the wireless security tab , you will see wireless MAC filter. It must be disabled. If it is Enabled then disable it and save the settings.
When you try to connect using the WEP key 1 , do you get any error message ?
If you get any error then try $ sign and wep key1.

Cannot connect to internet error code 51330 is showing

Error Code: 51330 This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:
  1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
    2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
    3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
    6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
    7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
      • WPA - PSK (TKIP)
      • WPA - PSK (AES)
      • WPA2 - PSK (AES)

  2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:
    1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
    2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
    3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

you need a WEP key i'm guessing you're trying to say. go to a browser, type in the address bar and then login. the defult login name is either user or admin. the defulte password is either password or 12345. after logging in, find the menu that says wireless. from there you can either disable the WEP key, or write down the WEP key and type that into your laptop when it tries to connect. disabling the WEP key brings down your internet local security, but is not a problem is you don't live too close to anyone
