Question about GigaFast Ethernet WF748-UI (WF748UI) 802.11g/b Wireless Adapter
Dear Sir, I have a wireless router connect to a PC and am able to browse the Internet for quite sometime now. I recently have installed another PC in a different room and have attached and installed a wireless LAN mini USB adapter (IEEE 802.11b compatible, portable) to it, but am unable to browse the Internet. While trying to connect to the LAN it is asking for WEP identification. How do I get this "WEP". Am I missing something? I basically need some hep in setting up an internet connect to this new PC. Many Thanks
There is a program that is called wireless keyview. What it will do is decrypt the wireless key that you already have and display it in plain test for you to write down and back up. This will also show you the pass phrase for all of the other wireless networks that you have connected to as well.

Apparently either you or someone else enabled encryption on your wireless router. This is in general a good thing, it keeps neighbors and people around your unit from accessing your network.
First are you sure the wireless is accessing your router -- there may be several routers named default or linksys in radio range?
Second you may be able to find the passphrase / key / password in the configuration of the wireless in the other computer.
Third if you can access the router config
Generally by typing something along the lines of
http://192.168.0.1 into a browser like Internet Explorer
then you need a userid and password (that defaults may be in the manual for the device)
Then navigating to wireless security or some equivalent name you should be able to find the WEP passphrase, key, password.

You can find the WEP code in your setting on your router. Just get into your bios on your router and find the wireless WEP code you will see it is a 26 digit code just type that into any other computer on that router and make sure workgroup is the same too. Once you put the 26 digit code in you should be online now, Hope that helps Let Me Know Thanks Bear001 If you need more help write back here.
