Re: wep key

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.

Grace Digital Mondo Wifi radio - plugged in, found my wifi connection, but when I enter my WEP Key, it just cirlces back to :Enter WEP Key. No errors received, just doesn't recognize my WEP K

You say that the radio keeps demanding the WEP key for your WiFi connection. WEP is just one of several security types to be used for WiFi. The fact that the radio is asking for a WEP key indicates to me that your WiFi is more than likely set to one of the other security standards such as WPA, WPA2-PSK etc etc etc. If this is the case your laptop and kindle etc will be using the same security standard as your WiFi router. To find out which security standard is being used in Windows 7, on your laptop, click on the active connection in the system tray to bring up the list of available connections and then click on "Open Network and Sharing Centre". When the Network Centre page comes up double click on the "Wireless Connection".
A status box will come up and about half way down is a utton "Wireless Properties". Click on this, and in the box that comes up click on the security tab and it will tell you the security type, the encryption type and the wireless key (click on "Show characters").
If the encryption type is not WEP then the radio will not connect to your WiFi, and the radio settings for Security and encryption need to be set to the same as on the laptop for it to connect.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

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.

How do i set up my dlink to work with my new laptop.currently it is conected to my desktop computer. trying to manually add my wireless conection. Need to know my Network Name(1-32case sensitive...

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.

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, 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.

Need to find out my wpa key so i can hang it up to my ps3

The password is the encryption key in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the laptop or PS3 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 PS3 or 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.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

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 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.

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.


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 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.
