If you use your router's interface page you can find this out. It should be listed under the security tab. Do you know how to do this? If not, give your router's make and model# and will you exactly how to do this.

How do i find my wep key or wpa key


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

How do i find my SSID, WEP key and WPA key trying to connect ps3 to internet.


You need to log onto your router and determine the WEP or WPA key being used. Your router manual has logon details. Also, the key is sometimes on the bottom of the router.

Where is my wep key located


a WEP key is a group of numbers assigned automatically or manually to the wireless router for security so anyone who does not know the key can't access your wireless network.

1. dissconnect the dsl modem wait 10 seconds

Thats the universal protical for reset.

3. inter your router setup page
This can be done by typing 192.168.1.1 in your browser address bar and pressing enter
consult your router documentation or website for specific numbers.
if your router wants a password or user name the default password may be "password"
( no user name required )

4. enable the wireless network in the router configuration pages.

5. enjoy having complete control of your router configuration.

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.

I want to connect a PSP on a router with wep


sure you can do that but you will need to know the wep key first

if you dont then contact you network administrator to get the wep key from them.....


if it is a new wireless router then the wep key should be on the back of the router (its a 10 digit hexa).

enter the wepkey and you will get wireless connection.

I want to connect a Wii gaming system to the internet and it asks for a password or WEP key which I do not have. How can I get connected?


The WEP key is the security key that was set up in the wireless router or access point. It will be the same as your wireless WEP key for your laptop or PC. I assume you have access to your router admin and therefore shouild be able to either recover it or change it to something you know.
