Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)
Hello, The WEP Key is a "password" you set in order to protect your wireless connection. If you don´t know it you have to log in to the router. The defaul settings are:
Open a Web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape
Enter http://192.168.1.1 in the Address field of the browser
enter admin in the User Name field and leave the Password field blank.
Click the Wireless Setup icon. You will see the SSID and the WEP Key.
If you can´t login to your router or you are not using the default settings you will need to reset the router. Resetting your gateway to the default settings not only changes your router user name and password to the default values, but it also deletes all your home network settings. This includes the SSID and network encryption key. After you reset your router to the default settings, your home network won't be accessible until you reconfigure your router and all your network devices to use the same SSID and encryption key.To reset your Actiontec GT704WG gateway to the default settings:
1. With the power on (Power LED on front panel should be lit green), use the pointed end of a paper clip to press and hold the Reset button for 30 seconds.
2. Release the Reset button. The Actiontec gateway should reboot itself.
3. Wait 15 seconds before resuming setup. Then follow the steps i wrote above.
Your Actiontec GT704WG gateway is now using the default settings for the network configuration. This includes the default SSID and WEP encryption key. Then what you have to do is reconfigure your wireless settings and write it down and put it on a safe place in case you forget.
I hope this helps.
