Change the WEP mode on the Archos to 64 bit, it sounds like you have different modes set.

I need a wep key


A WEP key is a Wireless Network security key that allows your devices to connect to the Wireless network. It is usually a 10 digit code (alpha numeric) that is set on your Network DSL router. If you turn your router upside down, you can find it printed with a barcode on a sticker attached to the router.

How do i find the wep key number


Hi,

You maybe having problem connecting wirelessly. There's a possibility that when you try to connect wirelessly,it's asking for the network key or WEP key, There are two option both free and paid depending on the warranty of the router. If the router is not under warranty anymore and you contact the manufacturer of the router to ask them to provide you the WEP key, they will ask you to pay for the support. But if you want the free one, follow these steps:

1. Check for the manufacturer sticker at the bottom of the router. You will see there a label that says WEP KEY. It's usually 10 digits characters.

2. Try to type that to the box where its asking for the security key for the wireless network.

3. If nothing happens and its says, INVALID KEY. There's a possibility that the router is manually configured and needs to be reset to the factory default.

4. Look for the reset button at the back of the router,usually a red hole that needs a pen or any pointed object to push through.

5. Push the reset button for 30 seconds while the router is on.

6. Power down the router for 30 seconds then turn it back on.

7. Try to use the WEP KEY that is underneath the router again since it already goes back to its default settings.

If its still the same, you will really need to contact the manufacturer of your Internet Service Provider to reconfigure the router.

Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Informed WEP key is a 10 digit number. could 231408&sid nos. & characters be my WEP key?


A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks.A WEP key is a sequence of hexadecimal digits. These digits include the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F.

The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key
WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator, it would have been provided by the Internet Service providers, Hence it can't be as what you stated.

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.

Setting for wireless d- link router for my laptop


WEP key is usually found on the back of the router or the side of the box the router came in. When the router is connected and you see there is a signal by the LED lights, click on the internet connection icon on the lower right of your screen. Select the proper wireless device to which you wish to connect. It will tell you that you need a WEP key. Enter the 10 digit code on the back of the router. If it asks for a 12 digit code, simply add two zeros to the beginning of the WEP key. Hope this helps!

How to connect my palm to my computer when I am using a reseault Linksys


hi. try this.

have the tx search for you network using the wifi button at the bottom of the screen.
select/highlight your network and click edit. note do not connect to it yet
click configure.
on the security, pull down the arrow and pick WEP (or WPA according to what your router has.) note that since you mentioned the 10 digit alphanumeric code i assume it is WEP
on the key type click on 40 bit hex
i usually leave the four keys unchecked. (unless you have 4 keys)
insert your alphanumeric key that you use to protect your network into the dotted line.
ok
ok
click yes to connect. enjoy.

if your pda has connected and you still cannot get your internet, please read below.

PS. some internet servers may require a new user to input a name and password as a safeguard. this is familiar when you try to log into a public wifi hotspot with your laptop and the web browser always redirects you to an agreement page.


if this is so, what i do is to run my internet browser. let it load the first page then i accept the agreement and i am in.

hope this works for you. please feel free to email me with any more questions.
enjoy
