Re: WEP key recovery

WEP is only for wireless connections. Connect to the router using a cable, enter its admin and see/change the key.

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 "" 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.

Wireless Network Key (WEP/WPA) Recovery

It frequently happens that one loses or forgets his/her wireless network key. Normally this key is cached on your computer and it connects automaticly, but what to do when you have a new computer and you can't remember the key you originally used( and you don't have access to the wireless router) ?

Instead of resetting (the password on) the router you could try and recover the key from another computer on the network which does succesfully connect to the network.

One of the tools which can do this for you is NirSoft WirelessKeyView ( It's free, safe and easy in use ... just download the right version (32 bits or 64-bits) onto the computer which does succesfully connect to the network and run it.

Lock my router

You can reset you router to it's factory default settings:

Have you somehow lost your D-Link router's password? Perhaps the easiest way to gain access to your router's admin interface is by restoring it to the default factory settings, however, if that is not possible, try method number two via the master password. If you lost your WEP password, visit this post for more info - Recover Lost WEP Wireless Network Password Key.


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

Where can I find the WPA or WPA 2 Key on my Cisco N?

The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 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, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Lost my key number

Connect your computer to the router via Ethernet cable. In that way, you will see the WEP key assigned in your Router's GUI/page. You will see it in the Wireless section of the Router. Once you get the WEP key, enter it to the new PC to gain access to the Wireless connection.

Are you saying you cannot access your router page like or are you saying your forget your WEP key for wireless?
If you cannot Access your Router page Then a hard reset in order and there should be a black button somewhere on the back you can press and it should reset to system defaults, the password should be admin
If you dont remember your Wep key, go to your Router Page open it up And turn off the Internet security then Turn it back on while changing the password

The setting should be web-based.
connect a pc to your router using LAN/ethernet port.
Access the router (you should know the router
ip address) via IE ex:
Read your router manual for details.

I lost the instillation CD and need the wep code

The WEP code is whatever you make it when you set up the wireless connection. If you have lost this key. It is best to use the manual reset located on your wireless router. Will require a small point like a paperclip. Then you will have to access the router and set up the wireless internet over again. Then you can secure it with a new WEP key.
If you need further assistance please ask me.

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.
