I tried to change from WEP to WPA but the password will not go through. It makes it an unsecure line for wireless. What am I doing wrong?


The Short Answer:
Your password might not meet criteria. It also depends on whether you use a custom encryption key. If so, then you either need to create a 10-digit or 26-digit hexadecimal number (numbers 0-9 & letters a-f) depending on whether you use 64 or 128-bit encryption.

The Long Answer:
A WPA password must be between 8-63 characters long, and must only contain ASCII printable characters.
The 2Wire User Guide for the 2700 states the following:
"You can customize the following wireless settings in the Wireless Security panel.
1. From the Authentication pull-down menu, select an authentication setting: WEP-Open, WEP-Shared, or WPA-PSK.
Note: WPA-PSK authentication is supported only on HG model gateways.
Open authentication allows users to configure their wireless adapter as either Open or Shared; in either case an encryption key is required. Shared authentication allows users to configure their wireless adapter for Shared authentication, which requires an encryption key. WPA-PSK requires that users configure their wireless adapter using TKIP.
2. To use the encryption key that came with your gateway, click the Use default encryption key radio button.
To create a custom encryption key, click the Use custom encryption key radio button. If you select Use custom encryption key, you can define a 64-bit or 128-bit encryption key. For 64-bit encryption, enter a 10-digit hexadecimal number. For 128-bit encryption, enter a 26-digit hexadecimal number. A hexadecimal number uses the characters 0-9, a-f, or A-F.
3. Click SAVE"

Setting-Up 152-Bit WEP Wireless Security on a Linksys Dual-Band A+G Wireless Router
Question
How do I set up 152-Bit WEP on a Linksys Dual-Band A+G Wireless Router?
Answer
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) can be a 64-bit key with 10 hexadecimal digits, a 128-bit WEP key with 26 hexadecimal digits or a 152-bit WEP key with 32 hexadecimal digits. This encryption will prevent other users from connecting to a wireless network using your own WEP key. It will also protect your wireless transmissions/communications from being accessed or received by other users.
NOTE: Make sure to change the wireless settings of either Wireless-A or Wireless-G depending on the standard your network is using.
152-bit WEP key only applies to 5GHz 802.11a Wireless enabled network.
To setup WEP Wireless Security on your Linksys router follow the steps below.
Setting-Up the Linksys Router to use WEP
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click Wireless then click WirelessSecurity.
Step 3:
Look for SecurityMode and select WEP.
For Wireless-A Settings:
4439-001.pngFor Wireless-G Settings:
4439-003.pngNOTE: If the screen on your router’s web-based setup page looks different, click here.
Step 4:
Look for the Encryption drop down menu and select 152 bits.
Step 5:
Look for Passphrase and type a wireless network password of your choice, then click Generate. In this example “MySecretKey” was used.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 16 characters.
Step 6:
When you click Generate, the result will be a string of random characters.
Step 7:
Look for TXKey and select any number to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected 1.

4439-005.pngStep 8:
Copy Key1 since 1 was selected under TX Key.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.

Asking 8digit network key


Sounds like your wireless network is setup to require a password (it has encryption) most commenly used is WPA, WEP and WPA2, you will have to ask the person who setup the network for the password.

Here is some more information from the NETGEAR site on WEP encryption for a wireless network:

What is WEP Encryption for Wireless Networks? Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security protocol for wireless networks that encrypts transmitted data . It's easy to configure. Without any security your data can be intercepted without difficulty.
However, WEP was an early attempt to secure wireless networks, and better security is now available such as DES, VPN, and WPA. See the Guide to Internet Security to learn about network security.
WEP has three settings: Off (no security), 64-bit (weak security), 128-bit (a bit better security). WEP is not difficult to crack, and using it reduces performance slightly.
If you run a network with only the default security, where WEP is turned off, any of your neighbors can immediately log on to your network and use your Internet connection.
  • For wireless devices to communicate, all of them must use the same WEP setting. (40-bit and 64-bit WEP encryption are the same thing - 40-bit devices can communicate with 64-bit devices.)
While there is no extra performance cost to encrypting the longer key, there is a cost to transmitting the extra data over the network. 128-bit security is not much more difficult than 64-bit to crack, so if you are concerned about performance, consider using 64-bit. If you're very concerned about security, use WPA, which replaces WEP with a protocol that is - given current technology - impossible to crack. There's a good overview in What's New in Security: WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access).
The WEP concept of passphrase is introduced so that you do not have to enter complicated strings for keys by hand. The passphrase you enter is converted into complicated keys. Choose passphrases with the same care you would important passwords.
  • With 128-bit encryption, you need to enter a passphrase to generate each key.
  • All four keys must be specified, because WEP switches between them to make your traffic more difficult to break.
  • All devices within your LAN must use the same passphrases (i.e., the same keys).
WEP is not necessary if you have a gaming console such as PlayStation or Xbox, and there are no other computers on the network.
Read Instructions on how to Configure Wireless Security (WEP/WPA/Access list). Instructions are also included on the User Manuals and Reference Manuals for wireless products (available on the Product page on this site as downloads).

Setting secured wireless connection


You can enable WEP on your router.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.0.1 to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

Save the settings.

I hope this helps!

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.

How do I put an encryption on my linksys router?


Securing your wireless network is a simple process, which generally does not require a lot of time. This can be done by:
  • Enabling WEP or WPA on the Router
  • Enabling Wireless MAC filter on the Router
  • Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
NOTE: The wireless security modes available may vary depending on the model of the router and wireless adapter you are using.
Enabling WEP on the Router
Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) is a type of wirelesssecurity which does not change. It provides comparable confidentialityto a traditional wired network. There are two types of WEP you canchoose from:
a. WEP 64-bit: This type of WEP consists of 10-hexadecimal codes. To enable WEP 64-bit, click here.
b. WEP 128-bit:This type of WEP consists of 26-hexadecimal codes hence it is moresecured compared to WEP 64-bit. To enable WEP 128-bit, click here.
Enabling WPA on the Router
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a type of wireless securitywhich is dynamic in nature. Meaning, it changes depending on the timerenewal you will specify. Hence, WPA is more secured compared to WEP.
  • Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (WPA-TKIP) – utilizes a stronger encryption method and incorporates Message Integrity Code (MIC) to provide protection against hackers.
  • Advanced Encryption System (WPA-AES) – utilizes a symmetric 128-bit block data encryption
To enable WPA, click here.
Enabling Wireless MAC Filter on the Router
Wireless access can be filtered using the MAC address of thewireless devices transmitting within your network’s radius. You caneither permit or prevent specific wireless computers access to yourwireless network.
To permit wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
To prevent wireless computers to connect to your wireless network, click here.
Disabling SSID Broadcast on the Router
Disabling the SSID broadcast is one way of securing your wirelessnetwork. This procedure will prevent other users from detecting yourSSID, or your wireless network name, when they attempt to viewavailable wireless networks in your area. For instructions, click here.

Secure network


- access your web user interface by typing http://my.router (or the default address http://192.168.2.1) on the address bar of your web browser
- click on Basic Settings
- click on Wireless Security
- click on the Enable Wireless Security checkbox
- select either WEP or WPA in the Network Authentication list (Note: make sure that your wireless computers can support wpa if you're planning to use wpa. wpa is more secured than wep)
if you're going to setup wep, follow the steps below:

- select hexadecimal or ASCII characters as the Key Format, you can use either as a string of hexadecimal digits (character 0 ~ 9 and A ~F ) or as ASCII characters (any key on the keyboard)
- then select your desired encryption level from the Key Length list. it could be either 40(64)-bit or 104(128)-bit key length.
- enter four different keys in the Key1, Key2, Key3, and Key4 fields to store on your router.for 40(64)-bit encryption, enter a 5-character (or 10 hexadecimal digits).for 104(128)-bit encryption, enter a 13-character (or 26 hexadecimal digits) WEP key (note: you'll just need to enter the characters that you've setup on Key1 for all the wireless computers that you have
- click NEXT, then Save and Restart to apply the changes

if you're planning to enable wpa, follow the steps below:

- enter your pre-shared key. this key must match the key that is used by each wireless client computer associated to your router.
- choose a key format. this can be hexadecimal digits (0-9, A-F) or ASCII characters (any key on the keyboard)
- WPA Group Rekey Interval specifies how often the key "rotates" or changes
- WPA Encryption allows you to select 1 of 2 possible encryption methods (TKIP and AES) - choose one that your wireless clients supports
- click NEXT, then Save and Restart to apply the changes

then connect your wireless computers to your wireless signal using the correct wireless security (network key)

hope this'll help you.
