Cant access the wireless internet


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I just got a laptop, and i am trying to connect it to tthe router, it's says i need a wep/wap key. where can i find that key?


The wep key has to be created on the router so if you didn't set it up then you need to ask the person who did what it is. Assuming that it is your router and you lost or forgot the key then you can get into the router with a computer that is hardwired to the router. So you plug your laptop into the router and open up internet explorer. In the address bar you need to put in the router's address (Ex: linksys is 192.168.1.1) this will pull up the router menu default login is admin and password admin or root. (if these have been changed then you can push in the reset button on the back but this will wipe out everything and you'll have to set it up again,not preferable.) If you have another router then you can get online on another computer and look these default codes up for your router. If these work then you are in the menu and you can go to security section and create a new wep (or take it off completely again not preferable) make sure to save the changes you have made before getting out of the menu and write down the wep you created or save it in a word doc. Now you can unhook your laptop and try to connect wirelessly when it asks for a wep put in the key you created,reenter it and hit connect and you should be good to go.

Need to secure my wireless router. do not know how?


Go to your wireless router software and click on the security setting section. Create a WEP key by providing a secret code or password that restricts access to the network. (to get access type http://192.168.0.1) Step2Be sure to choose a key with a combination of letters, numbers and symbols. These types of codes are the most difficult to break. Step3Click on the wireless connections options on your wireless router software. Find your router from the list of found servers and click on security settings. Step4Add the WEP key that you used on the main router settings to the wireless device. A lock symbol should now appear next to the name of your wireless router from the list of available routers. Step5Access the Internet via your router using only devices that have the WEP installed in their wireless settings. Without it, they will not be able to complete the connections to the network. This information must be added to all wireless devices that you plan to access via the router.

  1. Access the router's setup page using a computer that is wired or physically connected to the router.
  2. To access router's setup page, launch IE and on the address field type 192.168.1.1 (which is the default IP address of Linksys routers). Then, it will ask for a username and password. By default, there is no username. The password is admin.
  3. Once you're in the Linksys setup, go to WIRELESS tab. There is a subtab called Wireless Security.
  4. Click on wireless security tab and you will find there the security key or wep key that is enabled in your router.
Hope this helps!

I want to get a wep key for my router model wrt54g-v8 serial number cdff1g5b8259


You can create a WEP easily.

In the router setup, when you enable wireless security, you select WEP, then you can use any alpha numerics you want for the key.

for 64bit encryption, you can use a 10 digit key. ( I suggest an old phone number as it is 10 digits, hard to figure out and generally easy to remember) 128 Bit encryption is a 26 character key which is hard to guess, but hard to remember too.)

Once the key is set in the router and saved, you merely View Wireless Networks, select you router and type in teh key when prompted for the key.
