Re: 10 character key
The simple way is to download this application and use it to access your router. If you've lost the password then you'll have to hardware reset it. If you want to do it without using the application check this link.
Hope this helps.

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.
Hey pkkern, . Your default 10 digit security is located on the bottom of your router. . If you want to change it or for some reason your default key is no longer working we will have to get into the routers configuration homepage. . To access this open up your Internet browser and write in this address, (which is your routers address) 192.168.1.254. . If your routers homepage does NOT open up check to make sure you have no software firewalls . Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Homepage.
. Click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel (Status at a
Glance) under the Wireless Settingsheading. . You will see a wireless network security section, use the following information to select a custom wep-key. . Change your wireless settings and use the following information if you
want to change to a custom WEP key. 64-bit
hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length.
(For example, 123456789A is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit
hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (For
example, 456FBCDF123400144445271730 is a valid string of 26 characters
for 128-bit encryption.) 64-bit
ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length. (For example,
GMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption) 128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13
characters in length (For example, 2008SUNSSWIN1 is a valid string of 13
characters for 128-bit encryption.)
Thanks for using fixya! If you need information just comment in this thread and I will get back to you, don't forget to leave feedback! Cheers,
This means that you have to enter the network key into your computer in order to connect to the network, If you enter the password as hexadecimal characters,
you must type exactly 10 characters (5 bytes) for a 40-bit key (valid characters are 0-9 and a-f),
or exactly 26 characters (13 bytes) for a 104-bit key.
If you typed any number of characters other than 10 or 26, or any
character that is not a hexadecimal digit, this is interpreted as ascii string.
In this mode, each character is a byte by itself.
So, valid length of the string in this case is either 5 or 13 characters.
If this condition is not met, the string can't be accepted as a valid password.
Please check carefully what you type. (Letter O instead if zero, or small L instead of 1 etc.)
If you don't know the key, you have to connect to the router via a cable and copy the key from there - or ask your Dad to give you the information. He will have it, because he has a working connection.
If you have any more questions or this is not clear ot you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
Asked your friend for the network key that he/she setup for the wireless network work. If he/she dont remember it. Try to access the configuration page of your router (192.168.0.1) and reconfigure your wireless setting in the router. By default the Username is admin and leave the Password blank.
If inside the the configuration page of the router Click Home > click on WIRELESS located on the left side and you will have the wireless setting of your network
> Change the wireless network name
> Under security choose either WEP or WPA -PSK for this type of router.
> Type in your new network key (also know as Passphrase of Key1).
For WEP use 0 to 9 Number or A to F character and it should be exactly 10 characters.
For WPA-PSK you can use alpha numeric from 0 to 9 and from A to Z. The minimun character would be 8.

Try accessing your wireless network using your wireless computer.
A 64-bit WEP key is 10 HEXIDECIMAL digits (0-9 A-F). In my own system I just use 1011121314. I don't have to think. You can use something like 123456FACE or something else cute, but the end result is still 10 HEX characters.
Try logging in again using 10 ASCII characters or check the router for the WEP key again, or even add a second key just for your eee PC.
