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.

A wep key is pretty small either 5 or 10 characters.

To reset it or add a new one you need to connect to the router and log on. In the wifi setup there are 4 slots for wep keys. If you don't want to change the esisting key then just use one of the empty slots. when you setup your computers wifi just make sure that you tell it to use your wep key and its slot number. Once you have entered the wep key then hit apply and log out. the rest is just setting it up on your laptop/computer.

If this is a home router or you are not too paranoid about people gettig at the router then stick a piece of tape with the router logon, and password or password hint, its ip # and the wep key. Basically someone has to have physical acess to see that which means you have other problems. But this can save a lot of wondering what the settings were.

There is a reset button somewhere on the router. It's little, it's recessed, and you'll need a pencil to press it. After you do, your username will be "admin" and password will be "admin". Be sure you go back in and change it.

I don't know my wep key


Either get into the router configuration to get the WEP key, or hack the wep key using aircrack from this guide http://www.askstudent.com/hacking/how-to-crack-a-wep-key-using-ubuntu/ just make sure you have a compatible adapter like a ALFA awusb36H or something with pack injection or you'll just be banging your head against a wall.

Have misplaced WEP key number is it possible to e-mail it to us.


Unless your Internet Service Provider set up the WEP key for you, there is no way anyone can email or retrieve your WEP.
If the person who set up the router cannot remember the WEP, you can do a hard reset on the router to allow you to connect and create a new WEP.
follow this link for instructions on how to hard reset your router: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/991/~/wpn824-rangemax%E2%84%A2-wireless-router:-frequently-asked-questions
- After a hard reset, you can set up a new WEP and use it on all the devices that you connect to the internet wirelessly.

My cousin and i cant remember the password on the router on my uncle's laptop, neither can my uncle. I need the WEP key for my DS game pokemon soul silver so i can receive a mystery gift that will end on...


Best solution is to reset the router. Press and hold the rest button on it for approx. 30 sec. The reset button should be located on the back of the unit near the ether ports or on the bottom of the unit. Once you reset the router you can go back into the settings and creat a new wep key.

Ps3 wep key


The WEP Key is the Password you used to protect your router. To fix this problem, uninstall your router from your computer and reinstall it. When setting it up, keep everything as default and when it gets to WEP Key, make one up and write it down. Finish installing your router.

***KEY THING IS TO WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN***

On your PS3, go to Network Settings and setup a wireless network. Let it search for your network, put in your custom WEP Key, and let it set up from there. When you enter your WEP Key, before hitting next, if there is an AOSS button on your router (Front/Top button on your router that allows networks to connect) you want to push it prior to moving on so your PS3 is discovered. You should be good to go from there.

Good luck! If i've helped you out please give me a good rating!

Respectfully,

Don

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.
