If you are already in the administration pages, it's common that you can't *get* the key - but you *can* set it
Also note that there are hacker tools out there that let an intruder discover your WEP. You could use those, too, but they need wireless traffic to analyze - so if you can't connect, you won't have traffic and can't get it this way.

Wep key for wnr2000


Hello. If you need WEP key or you would like to setup wireless security for WNR2000, access the router user by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the address field of your browser and then press Enter.
Enter admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).

11_20_2011_9_37_29_am.png
After logging in. In the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the WEP or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.

Glad to be of service. Have a nice day.

I have G604T rounter, but I could not find a WEP key, all I can find is P/N, S/N, and MAC. Where is the WEP Key? That is why I could set a wireless network. Thank you for your help.


Hi,
Th WEP Key is in the GUI of the Router.
You will need to get the Routers Default Gateway to get in the Routers setting to be able to find the WEP key.
Try typing 192.168.1.1 on your Internet Explorer Browser then press Enter this will ask you for a user name and password to get in the D-link Router that info may change if you changed it or possibly the ISP if the router was provided by the ISP.
Try Username: admin Password: password
User Name: admin Password: admin
User name: admin Password:
then press Enter try any of the combinations, don't worry this will not lock your router, if you get an Error 404 that is ok just type in the Default Gateway again.
In the Router Settigns you can find the WEP key under Security.
I hope this helps.

Where do I find my WEP key


To access the web-based utility, launch the web browser on
your computer (INTERNET EXPLORER), and enter the Router’s default IP address, 192.168.1.1, in the Address field/bar. Then, press Enter. A password request screen will appear. Leave the User name field blank then default password admin. (You can set a new password from the Administration tab’s Management screen.) Click OK to continue.
The Internet Setup section configures the Router to your Internet connection. Most of this information can be obtained through your ISP/ your internet provider. Internet Connection Type Select the type of Internet connection your ISP provides from the drop-down menu. By default, the Router’s Internet Connection Type is set to Automatic Configuration - DHCP, which should be kept only if your ISP supports DHCP or you are connecting through a dynamic IP address. 68be046.jpg IMPORTANT: If you are using WEP encryption, always remember that each device in your wireless network MUST use the same WEP your wireless network will not function properly.
WEP Encryption Select a level of WEP encryption, 64 bits
10 hex digits or 128 bits 26 hex digits. The default is
64 bits 10 hex digits.
Passphrase Enter a Passphrase to automatically generate WEP keys. Then click Generate.
Key 1-4 If you did not enter a Passphrase, enter the WEP key(s) manually.
Click Save Settings to apply your change

My wireless connection is unsecured I'm using a Netgear router,what do I do to secure my line?


1. Goto your web browser
2. Type 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (depending on which Netgear router, just try both).
3. Type "admin" for username and "admin" for password.
4. Click on "Wireless settings" on the left frame of the router setup page.
5. Security options are on the main frame of the page now (under security options). Click on WEP and enter a WEP ID (make it unique).
6. Click on "Apply" and repair your wireless connection. It should prompt you for a WEP key.

Hope this helps,
Bill
