You need to go to your router and look for it there.Its a really long key about 20-28 characters.

good luck.

Personally i'd turn WEP off as its not secure and it actually slows down your connection. you should control access to the router via mac address filtering.

As soon has i put a wep key i am unable to connect wireless ????


You now need to add the WEP key to your wireless settings on your wireless device. Go to wireless networks, advanced network settings, find the name of your network, and add the WEP code, you will need to change the security settings to WEP.. That will fix your problem.

Your laptop should be able to automatically find the network name and security type. (You would have set up all of this, by the way.)
You should then type in your security key/password (you should have set this up when setting up router for first time, also) and then you should be connected to the internet.
Your laptop might not have wireless capabilities, so you might have to buy a wireless network adapter.

What is the wep password


The encryption 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, 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.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blankand the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Cant find my wifi code to open a network


Your WEP is the security key you set in your router to allow other authorised devices to access your network. When you set it up, you set the WEP to protect your network from others accessing it without the key. So now all you have to do is set the WEP (security) key in your laptop the same as your router and you're cookin'. The same key must be used to connect any thing, iPhone, Wii, Play Station, anything that has WiIFi capabilty.

Need to get wep key for new ps3 250 gig hard drive


The wep key is for the wireless router. It is the password. If you enabled wep security on your wireless router and created a password, it is the password you created. If this is someone else's wireless network you will not know what their password is.

Have lynksys wireless router but is unsecure -


You can enable WEP on your router to make your wireless network secure.

To access the screen of the router, type the ip address of the router in the address bar of Internet explorer or Firefox. By default the ip address of the router is 192.168.1.1. If this doesn't work, go to the command prompt (Start -> run -> type cmd). Type ipconfig. Copy the default gateway.

It will prompt you for a user name and password. By default leave the user name blank and then type admin in the password field.

Once you are in the Linksys screen, go to the Wireless tab -> Wireless security.

For the security mode, select WEP.

WEP encryption: 64bits 10 hex digits.

On the Passphrase field, type a wireless password of your choice, then click Generate.

It will give you a key. You will need to copy the wireless network key because you will need to enter this key on your PS3 and laptop. Take note that this is also case sensitive.

Once you click save settings, it will disconnect all your wireless computers.

You will need to manually enter the wireless network key on all your wireless devices. Without the network key, other computers will not be able to connect to your network.

I hope this helps.

Please take a moment to leave a comment if you find this solution helpful. Your feedback is important and very much appreciated.

Cannot get wireless connection to my laptop it works with the ethernet cable plugged in


You need to make sure you have the same settings on your wireless access point that you use on your laptop.

Make sure you spell your SSID (wireless network name) correctly. It is case sensitive.

Turn off security on your access point just to see if it works.
Configure your network card for Open access and turn off all other security settings.

Once you get it working turn on WEP encryption on your access point and create a wep key. Enter the same key on your Laptop.

Don't turn on stuff that you don't need or don't understand.

You just need to make it as simple as possible and then turn on adequate security.

OR

If the WEP stuff just gets too hard you can use MAC security.
That is where you say only known computers can access the wireless network. On your wireless access point configuration add the mac address of every devices network card that will connect. Sometimes these settings can be a little hard to find on the access point.

Hope this helps.

Start simple and then make it complex :)

How do i hook up my ps3 to my network wirelessly


Make sure the same SSID and network key is configured on your PS3's wireless settings. To get the SSID and network key do the following steps.

1. Open your Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 on the Address Bar
2. It will prompt you for username and password. Type admin on the password, leave it blank for username. If admin password doesn't work, type your own password.
3. When you get to the Setup page of the router, go to Wireless tab. Take not of the SSID or the Wireless Network Name.
4. Now click the sub-tab Wireless Security that's under the Wireless tab. Take note of the Security Mode. If it is WPA-Personal, take note of the Shared Key or Passphrase. If the Security Mode is WEP, take note of the WEP key # 1.

5. Now all you need to do is access the Wireless Settings of your PS3 and configure manually the SSID and the Security Key. Then reboot the router and PS3. That should do it.
