If you dont know the Passphrase or Network Key. You can check the passphrase when you access the router page:

  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
  • If the Wireless Security Key uses the default, the Passphrase is the 10 digits located underneath the router under the S/N.
Thanks for using Fixya.

There is a way to reset the modem but you will lose your configuration and you would have to start all over again.
on the back of the modem where you connect the cables there is a tiny hole it may say reset. with the modem on, go ahead and stick a pen, toothpick or something of that nature in to the reset hole and hold it for about 10 seconds, you would see the lights go out and come back on. at that moment go ahead and release the tiny button and wait for modem to come back on. At this point you can go ahead and reconfigure it, you have to enable the wireless feature, enable you password (both set up and configuration), rename your network, etc. DO NOT keep the default settings and try to use WPA instead of WEP is harder to crack. for you to do all of this you have to connect your computer to the modem with a cable and type the address to access it or open ie and type homeportal in the address bar. it should take you to the configuration page (if it is a 2wire modem).

if it works for you, don't forget to rateme


thx

I have a wireless router for xbox 360. I dont have no internet in my house. when i try to connect the to the internet and join xbox live it keeps saying i need a a pass phrase of wep or sum other code. can...


I dont have no internet in my house (sic) without internet.. how can you connect???... anyway a WEP key is only available from when the router was first setup a "Code" is generated and unless know cannot be used. If that happens all one can do, log into the router with a browser, and then you reset the router, & set it all up again, when at security, make sure that the generated "Key" is stored safely, I usually copy/paste to a notepad document, for later use. Thats the only way.

WE ARE TRYING TO GET MY XBOX TO GET LIVE AND IT SAYS THAT WE NEED A WEP KEY WERE CAN WE GET THAT AT


Your WEP key is on your router. When you setup wireless security in your router, you enter a key phrase aka WEP key. You just need to put that same phrase in the XBOX setup.

I cant connect a wireless adapter for xbox live it keeps asking for a wep key i dont know it how do i get it i have a netgear wireless router WGR614. can anyone help?


Your WEP key is the key (or passcode) you entered when you (or someone) set up your wireless router. If you didn't set it you need to ask whoever set up your router.

I cant connect to xbox live


Your wireless router may be using WEP encryption and/or have a hidden SSID.

You'll need to manually input the encryption key and SSID in order for it to work.

Cant get xbox live connected


You have to make sure that your xbox knows your ip address and if your using wireless, your wep key. Your wep key should be on the back of your wireless router and you can make your xbox recieve your ip address automatically by editing the settings. you can edit settings by testing your connection. If your xbox does does not have your ip address, next to ip address it will say failed and next to that it says edit settings.

Wireless adpater red!


try using WEP encryption, especially if you use a G router, as thid is easier for the adapter to work with then WPA. also make sure that you have the ports open for xbox Live, i think its ports 88 and 3074
