Which # on the bottom of my actiontec is the WEP #?


The WEP encryption key is setup by the user, it is not a fixed key.
Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I cannot find my wep key.


When you configure the "wireless" interface inside the router, you define:
* SSID -- the "name" for your wireless network
* encryption-level -- use 'WPA' or 'WPA2', not 'WEP' (too easily "hacked")
* the password for your wireless network.

Then, on your wireless device, select the SSID, and enter the password, to connect.

Whats the security code to acsess internet


WEP: wired equivalent privacy
WPA: Wifi Protected Access
These are the 2 kinds of security enabled for wireless routers.
These keys will be stored in the router interface.
If you open the router interface, you can find the key.

For opening the router interface u need to type the ip address of your router in the address bar of your web browser.(mozilla firefox preferred)
It will open the interface of your router.
You will need to login to the router before you can make any changes.(certain routers comes with the login password that is provided in the user manual of router)

I am using time warner cable high speed internet. and trying to connect my ps3 through a belkin router but it is not working. the wireless icon pops up from the router but what is a WPA Key??? HELP!!!


WPA === Wireless Protected Access

It's a level of encryption between the router and each wireless device, to add "security" to your wireless traffic.

Use an Ethernet cable to connect the network-port on a computer to one of the LAN ports on the router.

Restart the computer.

Start Internet Explorer, and connect to the web-server "inside" the router.

From this web-interface, you can set an SSID and set the encryption-level (e.g., WPA) and you can set a password/pass-phrase/pass-key for your wireless network.

Use the same SSID and password on your PS3.

We do not have a secure connection to our wireless rotor


You could change and configure your router through its web interface. To access it, use http://192.168.1.1 on Internet Explorer, and enter 'admin' for the password.
  • Go to Wireless LAN Security tab.
  • Select WPA-PSK on Network Authentication.
  • Enter a password that you want for your wireless network on WPA Pre-Shared Key (minimum characters is 8).
  • Set Data Encryption to TKIP.
  • Apply settings.
You should now reconnect your wireless computers to your network and enter the WPA Pre-Shared Key.

Entering a new password after resetting the router


- open your web browser (ie, mozilla, etc) and type http://my.router or http://my.WL530g or http://192.168.1.1
- it'll prompt you to connect, type "admin" for the username and password
- it'll prmpt you for the router's web user interface, click on "wireless" located at the left part of the page
- then select "interface", you can change your ssid from "default" to a customized one (e.g. your name) so that you'll be able to verify that you are really connecting to your own network
- you can now select your authentication method, i recommend the "wpa-psk" since it's more secured than wep (but you need to make sure that your wireless computers can support wpa-psk, hence use "open or shared key"; wep-64 bits will ask for a 10-hexadecimal key), wpa will ask you for an 8-character key
- then click on apply to save your settings

hope this'll help you.
