Log into your wireless router and create a new key.

Open up your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 (this ip address should be the address of your router, if not use the ip address assigned). Type in the username and password to login, the default is usually 'admin'

Navigate to the wireless security settings until you find your wep keys. You can either choose one of the keys, or create a new one.

What is a wep key and how do i find it


A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks. WEP keys allow a group of devices on a local network (such as a home network) to exchange encoded messages with each other while hiding the contents of the messages from easy viewing by outsiders. WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator. WEP keys are set on Wi-Fi Routers and other wireless network devices. Matching WEP keys must be set on each device for them to communicate with each other.

How to check wireless security key or passphrase on NETGEAR routers.


Most of the times after configuring the wireless connection on the NETGEAR ROUTERS, the user either forgets the security key or misplaces it.


In order to get this key we need to login to the router's page using any computer which is physically connected to router. The below steps are applicable for most of the NETGEAR routers.

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or'http://192.168.0.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase(or network key).
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new Password and click apply. You will then have to use the same Password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

Hope the above steps will help the user to locate or reset the wireless security key.

A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks. WEP keys allow a group of devices on a local network (such as a home network) to exchange encoded messages with each other while hiding the contents of the messages from easy viewing by outsiders. A WEP key is a sequence of hexadecimal digits. These digits include the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F. Some examples of WEP keys are:
  • 1A648C9FE2
  • 99D767BAC38EA23B0C0176D15
WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator. WEP keys are set on Wi-Fi routers, adapters and other wireless network devices. Matching WEP keys must be set on each device for them to communicate with each other. The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key

Have misplaced WEP key number is it possible to e-mail it to us.


Unless your Internet Service Provider set up the WEP key for you, there is no way anyone can email or retrieve your WEP.
If the person who set up the router cannot remember the WEP, you can do a hard reset on the router to allow you to connect and create a new WEP.
follow this link for instructions on how to hard reset your router: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/991/~/wpn824-rangemax%E2%84%A2-wireless-router:-frequently-asked-questions
- After a hard reset, you can set up a new WEP and use it on all the devices that you connect to the internet wirelessly.

WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator, it would have been provided by the Internet Service providers, Hence it can't be as what you stated.

What is a wep key on psp


a wep key is the security code for ur wireless network, If you have never altered it then it would be the default code... normally this is found on the reverse or underside of the wireless router. There is no wep key actually on the psp.
If no wep key or wireless security key is found on the router, check with your internet service provider.

What is the WEP key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is an older network security method that's still available to support older devices, but it's no longer recommended. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. However, WEP security is relatively easy to crack. f4008eb.jpg

We've misplaced the WEP key for our VersaLink 327W modem. Where would I find it?


Howdy,

Logon: 192.168.1.254 [or type in: "launchmodem" no quoted - one word] > Click: Wireless tab > Click: Configure Wireless > In the Wireless SSID: This box will show your WEP key.

(Enter any administrative user name and password if you have security locked to access the "Configure Wireless" zone.)

[This is different from the account name and password used to sign on to your ISP and it may not even be set. Is security is not activated, you will freely pass into the Configure Wireless zone.]

Good luck,

J
