The wep key to set up wireless will not be on your PC it is on the wireless routers website. If you have a setup cd that came with your router put that in and run the setup again. If not you will need to know the routers setup website, most use the default site witch is http://192.168.1.1 if it does use this site it will prompt you to enter a user and password, the default for that is admin/password if this lets you in, run the set up and write down the passcode and wep key

How doi find my wep key?


Your WEP key is the key for your wireless (wifi) router. You will need to check the settings of your specific router in order to access the WEP key settings. Your computers on the wireless network have the WEP key too, but it is like a password and cannot be read from the computers, it is only found on the router setup/settings.

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

Option1:

You can find the WEP key of your Wireless network after login to the Router. The WEP key is saved in the Router. Check the User Guide of the Router for the instruction to login to your Router.

If you are using a Computer with your wireless network and if the Wireless Key (WEP key) is saved in the Computer than you can use any application like "Wireless Key Viewer" or SIW for view the saved WEP key in the Computer.

I am connected with a wireless network but i can not access the internet in says secure certificate.. what is the best thing to do


This sounds like you have wep security enabled and don't have the correct wep key programmed. Check your router to see if it is set to require a WEP key, if it is select the option to show you characters for the key then look at your computer netwrok settings and ensure that the same WEP key is being provided by your computer when it logs into the router. This should solve the problem. You can also get the WEP key information from your service provider if they installed the wep key remotely which is a common practice.
