It's in the network settings under the wireless tab and then under advanced. But the key relates to the wireless router so, you could reset it with something new and then just type it onto the new pc.

The wep key is located in the "network connections". You can find it udner the double computer icon in the sys tray. When you open up the connection, double click the connection under wireless and look at the properties. The wep key will be encrypted. If you dont have it written down somewhere, then you may have to go to your router and have the password reset.

How do i find my wep key or wpa key


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

How do I reset my network key/wep key? I recently


Hi,

I believe you have formatted only your PC but your WEP/WPA settings remain the same or you can set it so.

First step is to check if you have wireless network up and running.
Click on the link below to download and install the Network Detector.
Download Link

If this tool does not detect your network ( not your neighbours ) then most likely you need to re-setup the entire network ( router ) settings. This is done once you call the ISP ( Internet Service Provider )

If the above tool detects your network, you can open the router configuration page and reset the WEP Key


Regards,
Ron

How do i locate my wep key on my computer i don't remember it


Hey you will not be able to locate the WEP key on any computer.
If you have the information saved on the document then you can find that document. otherwise you will not be able to find it on any computer.
This information is saved on the router interface. you will need to open the set up interface of the router.

How do i get my wep key


Option1:

You can find the WEP key of your Wireless network after login to the Router. The WEP key is saved in the Router. Check the User Guide of the Router for the instruction to login to your Router.

Option 2:

If you are using a Computer with your wireless network and if the Wireless Key (WEP key) is saved in the Computer than you can use any application like "Wireless Key Viewer" or SIW for view the saved WEP key in the Computer.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My eee pc 900 series wont conect to internet


Your computer is asking for the WEP key which is the security key setup at installation so anyone who wants to enter your network must know the password. Check the simple things first, like your CAPs Lock key is off, Num Lock key is off, double check you are typing in the correct password. You can change the WEP key with the software that came with the wireless installation.

Find wep key for wireless


If you have a PC already connecting to the same wireless network your Xbox wants to be on then you can find the WEP key software finder on eBay. Just search for "recover lost wep wireless key"
Hope this helps.
