Contact your ISP provider how to get the WEP key...

Otherwise, just reset your router. there's a reset button at the back. When scanning for netwotk choose linksys with the one that has the best signal (4-5 bars) then connect. You won't be asked for any WEP key anymore.

Hope it helps! ^_^

Does wifi require a cable modem? If so, then you can't call it wireless,can you? My Wi-Fi is connected to OakHaven network and has the IP address 192.168.1.9.


Hmmmm... MIFFED... not a great beginning.

From that particular spot... I'd suggest you go around to your MODEM... SNAP a picture, write down the make & model...
user-name and PASSWORD and call the GEEK-SQUAD... or some alternative support service to get you installed.

"WIRELESS" IN YOUR HOUSE ONLY MEANS you don't have to run and plug for every device in your house... to your
INTERNET SERVICE Provider's MODEM... Internally
(LAN = Local Area Network) to your house

If so equipped (your MODEM) ... Simply by turning it on...
Not all INTERNET SERVICE Provider (ISP) MODEMS
have a WIRELESS FEATURE...

You might have to buy the antenna (802.11) portion...
Plug it in and HAVE IT CONFIGURED... But first check
your SERVICE PROVIDER ... Many will be glad to get you started.

192.168.1.9 is an internal house address
and means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to the outside world...
and HOPEFULLY OakHaven is not one of your UNSECURED neighbors (likewise OakHaven means nothing).

By posting your LAN address... you are endangering NOTHING but the posting of your WAN address ... you should be EXTREMELY WARY of doing...

It is HIGHLY LIKELY you have not PASSWORD PROTECTED
ANY of your systems beyond their DEFAULT settings.

If your INTERNET SERVICE Provider has its own WAP
(wireless access point)... It would probably be best to contact them to access and condition your WAP to provide your "wireless" service...

Oh by the way... the area supported by the average WAP is about as big as the ordinary "urban" dwelling... Ideally PASSWORD protected and ADMINISTERED by YOU... the owner.

The bigger multi-story houses usually require WAP
EXTENDERS
...

This is definitely NOT PLUG-N-PLAY equipment... and when you do get your WAN address... DO NOT PUBLISH IT out to anybody!!

How to set up netgear ex6100 wifi range extender


Overview:
This article describes how to set up a NETGEAR EX6100 in Extender Mode
The extender connects wirelessly to your existing WiFi network, and then it creates a new WiFi extended network and links the two WiFi networks.
Symptoms:
Cannot connect to extender
Extender broadcasting EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT
Extender broadcasting EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT
Extender cannot access Internet or network
Process:
1. Place your extender in the same room as your WiFi router.
2. Plug the extender into an electric outlet and wait one minute.The PowerLED lights green.
If the Power LED does not light, press the Power button on the side.
3. Make sure that the mode switch on the extender is set to Extender.
4. Use a WiFi network utility on a computer or mobile device to find and connect to the EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT or EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT (SSID) WiFi network.
Note: EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT and EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT are the default name of your extender's wireless networks, and by default it is unsecured. If you changed the wireless name or security in the past, connect to the new name or enter the passphrase when prompted. EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT is only visible if your wireless adapter is 5 GHz capable.
After the wireless connection with the computer or mobile device is established, the Client Link LED lights solid green.
5. Open a web browser window from the same computer or mobile device.The browser takes you directly to NETGEAR genie Smart Setup.
Note: If you are not automatically directed to NETGEAR genie, launch an Internet browser and type www.mywifiext.net in the address field of the browser. Enter admin for the user name and password for the password.
6. Select a 2.4GHz WiFi network to extend and click the Continue button.
7. Type the network passphrase (also called password or security key) in the Passphrase field and click the Continue button.
8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 to select a 5GHz WiFi network.
Note: If your router does not support the 5GHz band, click the Skip button.
9. Select Private Network(home network) or Public Network radio button, and click Continue.
Note: Selecting Public Network will enable NAT and DHCP on the EX6100. For more info on NAT refer to: What is NAT (Network Address Translation)?
10. Type the name (SSID) for your WiFi extended network in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz Network Name (SSID) field and click the Continue button.
Note: You can use the same security settings as your existing network by selecting the Use the same security mode check box.
The WiFi extended network settings are applied.
11. Use a WiFi network manager on a mobile device or computer to connect to the extenders newly created WiFi network.
12. Click on the check box and click on Continue to finalize the installation.
13. Unplug the extender and move it to a new location closer to the area with a poor WiFi signal.
Note: The location you choose must be within the range of your existing WiFi router network.
14. Plug the extender into an electrical outlet and wait one minute. The Power LED lights green. Connect to the extender network and enjoy the extended Wifi network.

I purchased my wireless G 2.4 GHz broadband router a few years ago, and would like to allow my guests to use my protected network; however I don't know my key. How do I find out what my key is so I can...


Hello ,
Its better you can get into your wifi setting by 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 and check whether the key is visible in characters, coz in most of the wifi setting it used to be in this type * . So if it appears like that you can dissable your security settings for sometime. And when you get into your wifi setting it may ask for your password , the default one is USER ID: admin Password: password or admin

I have just gone on to wireless and its asking for my security key? Where will i find out what my security key is????


Hi, your security key, is the Key, that was generated in the router when you were setting up the router for first use. First, you put in your user name & password, then you go to security settings and set your WEP/WAP Key, this is the security code that must be used to logon to that network from the WiFi.
Now if you either have an unsecured network, or an unknown WEP/WAP key, what you have to do is, Login to the Router with a browser, and get through to the security settings, and Generate a Key, now when you generate the key, copy/paste this Number to a notepad document, save it somewhere handy, say desktop. Now finish off with the router, save all the settings and reboot the router, now you are ready to logon to your wireless network, now startup the PC, and find the SSID, The name you gave your WiFi connection, now when you select, you will be asked for the WEP/WAP Key, open the notepad document and copy/paste that number you saved into the place provided, there, now you have your security set and be able to logon to your WiFi & router.
It is all also explained in your user manual, i have included a copy below.

Need my wireless SSID Name & Network key


The SSID is simply the name of the WiFi Network, the Network Key or WEP/WAP Key, is generated when you first setup a WiFi point, For the first time you must copy this key to a document & use it when you try to first login, to the WiFi network. So the only place that information can be found is in the WiFi's setup.

I have a wep key and I dont know what it is how would I go about finding out what it is


A WEP or WAP "Key" is the "Password" for want of a better analogy, that is used and generated by a WiFi router/network. When you try to Logon to a Network, it will "Ask" you for the WEP/WAP key, so you can Logon. It is an "Authentication" protocol. Hope that explains it.

I reinstalled XP and SP2. Now I need to configure the wireless connection. How do I do it?


Well, what you do is install any network drivers, for your WiFi adapter, then Install the software for your WiFi Card. Now your WiFi Router, has a Name.. an SSID, this is what you will "See" when you search for a network. Also it may have a WEP/WAP key... or "password" you need to know this. You should have all this info from when you installed the router. Now when you try to connect to the network, you choose the SSID & when asked enter your Key (Password/number) and you will be able to access the network. if there is none you just go straight through. This is done either through the Windows WiFi or the makers installed software.. it makes no difference really. If you use proprietary software you must turn off windows wifi manager.
