You can get the WEP or Network Security Key from the Router.

Login to the Router as follows (make sure that it is connected to the Computer using LAN-Wired connection):

1. Start the Web Browser like Internet Explorer or Firefor or Safari.

2. Type 192.168.1.1 as the URL.

3. Type "admin" as user name and as "password" as password.

4. Go to the "Wireless Settings" option.

5. Set the Wireless Network Password (either WEP or WPA key) will be listed next to Security Encryption.


You may also use any third party utility to get the Wireless Security key save in the Computer (in which wireless connection is working and key is saved).


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

To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I go to connect and now a box appears Security key or passphrase? I have two lap tops no problem but I just got another one this appears


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. 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, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Try going into the system then device manager uninstall the wifi driver. Reboot the pc and it should auto load the driver when getting back on the desktop. Then see if it ask for the WEP key
The wifi driver will say 802.g 111 or something so you know its not the 10/100 network.

Not able to find wep code to connect my lap top to internet


Hello,
If you require the WEP key for the wireless network you will have to log in to the router interface and retrieve it. You can try the following steps..
1) Open internet explorer on any computer connected wired to the router. ( IF no computer is connected then connect your laptop through an Ethernet cable to the LAN slot on the router) 2) Delete everything from the address bar and type http://192.168.2.1 and hit enter. 3) Towards the left side under wireless click on security. 4) Now it will ask for the login password, do not type anything..just hit enter. 5) Now you will be in wireless security page. You should see Key 1, Key 2, Key 3 and Key 4. The check mark selected on either of the four with number or numbers and letters in it are the password. Make a note of it. 6) Now connect to the wireless network using the keys u made a note of.
Hope this helped.

Hi do you know how I can connect my lap top to the internet wireless with my linksys wireless router ? the lap top asks for an access code and I do not know what it is or how to find it do you know how to...


The access code or password is the encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop/computer to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer/laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

I sent my lap top in for fixing so I got it back and I am trying to connect to internet and it states it needs a WEP or WPA Network Key address to type in can you help me with this? my other email is...


1. Your router is the issue. It is asking for the WEP password or Network Key.
This is set up in the Wireless router.
You either know the password or have it written down.
If you are the administrator of the the router and don't remember the password or user name you will have to reset the route to factory default settings and go through the setup wizard and choose and create and save a new user name and password / WEP/WAP key. Consult your router cd for the instruction set. It will walk you through.

Trying to get on internet but its asking for a wep key or a wpa key I just completed hook up to netgear router have desk top and a wirerles lap top laptop is asking for info


The WEP and WPA key is configured in the router's wireless settings.
WPA is a stronger encryption than the older WEP encryption, I suggest you use WPA or better still WPA2.
To secure your wireless network, configure the wireless router and the wireless card in the computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Trying to connect lap top


The WEP key is something you designate on your own router. IF you are trying to get into someone else's router you need to ask them for permission to have their WEP key. Otherwise you cant get in. If you forget your WEP key you can do a hard reset on the router to clear out the key.

Router wireless


Do you have the router setup to provide either WEP or WPA encryption? If so, you will need to provide that Encryption key (think password) for your SSID (the wireless network you connect to).

If you then can connect to the router, but still can't get on the Net, you may need to go into the Advanced settings of that particular wireless network (Windows XP - open Available Wireless Networks, and click on the last item on the left Advanced Settings - then click on the 2nd tab - Wireless Networks - pick your network in the box at the bottom, and change one setting from "Open" to "Shared". You should then be able to connect properly.

Make sure you have a G plus wireless adapter in your laptop. I'm assuming you have your desktop wired directly via a network cable.
