Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

When you first installed the router, you should have done the "one-time-setup", and you should have chosen an SSID and a password (a "WEP-key").

If you've forgotten the password, repeat that "one-time-setup", and reconfigure your wireless networking.

What is a wep key and how do i find it


A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks. WEP keys allow a group of devices on a local network (such as a home network) to exchange encoded messages with each other while hiding the contents of the messages from easy viewing by outsiders. WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator. WEP keys are set on Wi-Fi Routers and other wireless network devices. Matching WEP keys must be set on each device for them to communicate with each other.

Matching WEP keys must be set on each device for them to communicate with each other. The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key

I still cant find my wep address!


If its your wireless router, take 1 of 3 approaches:

1) forego the wireless connection and wie your PC to the router, ten log into the
router's system mgmt web page and view your WEP setting.
Use this WEP in your wireless link software.

HOW to reset a wireless router: press in the tiny "button" on the bottom.
This resets your router mgmt password to the default in the manual
and resets WEP security to OFF (the default).

Approach #2) reset your router, returning it to the default state, which
is no WEP protection. then, wirelessly login to your routers network
security web page, and set a WEP. Then use this WEP

Approach #3: reset your router, and leave WEP security disabled.
login wirelessly. WEP denies access to those without your
WEP password, it does not allow others to "see" what you're
doing on the internet (as many believe).

What is the WEP key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is an older network security method that's still available to support older devices, but it's no longer recommended. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. However, WEP security is relatively easy to crack. f4008eb.jpg

I need wep key westell model 327w


Unfortunately, no one could not provide you any WEP key. WEP is a key that you set to your router so that no one could connect to your wireless network. As an owner of the network, you should know what your network key was.

If you forgot your WEP key, you need to reset the router to factory default, configure it and set a new WEP key.

That is the only way. Thank you!

Wep key for ps3


you will need to obtain your wep key no matter what...you can get it from whoever your router company is (if it is a linksys then call the linksys support number and obtain the key) in most cases thought the wep key is located on the router itself near the bar code. It will be a long number, When you get it and enter it in to the network settings then it should pick up the signal
