Wep password


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 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 wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router.

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blankand the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I find the WEB Key for Linksy's WRT54GS2. I am trying to go wirless and can't connect without this key


If you have previously connected successfully via WEP to this router from another windows PC, you can recover the stored key using utilities found here: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_key.html

Otherwise, connect to the router via an ethernet cable, and change the WEP key to a new one by logging onto the router adminstration page: (usually http://192.168.1.1 ) . Default password is admin/admin. If you have also set and forgotten your router 's admin password, then you may have to reset the router to factory defaults, and re-apply the ISP settings as well as the WEP key.

I have an acer laptop that I just bought and it's asking me for the wep key from the router. I have a main computer but I can't recall the key. how can I find it?


The WEP key is the encryption key that is configured in the router's wireless settings and the wireless card in the laptop is configured with this encryption setting to allow the laptop to communicate with the router.
WEP is an old encryption, better to use WPA encryption.

To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: -
1. Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA).
7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Wireless Connection Not Identified Aftre Password Was Set Up


There are a lot of reasons this could happen but I'll give you what I had to do. 1) Go back into your router and change the Wireless channel from 6 to 10. 2) make sure you have entered the correct WEP key in your network setting for the wireless adapter. The easiest way is to remove teh wireless network from your computer and let the computer find the network and prompt you for the wep key. the wep key is not the password you use to log into your router. The wep keys must be entered on all the wirelss machines in order for this to work.
