Hi,
A WEP key is not stored in Windows registry as plain text.
You will have to access the router to get the WEP key. You will also have to do this from a machine either already connected to the network wirelessly or through a machine that is hardwired to the router.
Type the IP address of the router into a web browser.
Commonly, the IP is 192.168.1.1 (Linksys and Netgear). If it is a newer 2WIRE, the IP is 192.168.1.254, or if it is a modem/router combination device, it is commonly 192.168.0.1.
You will then be prompted for a username / password.
After providing these credentials, access the "Wireless" section of the router and look for the security key. It will be in plain text

A WEP key is a group of numbers assigned automatically or manually to the wireless router for security so anyone who does not know the key can't access your wireless network.

I want to go on Wi-Fi at home but I do not know my WEP Key. Can you help me?


Greetings Fussdragon,

Fortunately, the WEP key can be easily located. If you have not changed your router from factory settings, the WEP key can be located on the bottom or back of your router. It consists of a combination of letters and numbers. If further assistance is required, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for using FixYa! =) Please rate.

I want to set up my ps3 for wireless, but can't get my wep key have the other key though. How do I find it. I am very challenged when it comes to these things


Greetings Catyv,

The WEP key is located on your router. All routers have the option to change your WEP key to your desired preference. However, if you have not changed your routers password from factory settings, the WEP key should be located under or on the back of your router. If you need any further assistance, feel free to contact me. I hope I helped. Thank you for using FixYa. =)

Error code 51330 on the wii.it will not except my


Error Code: 51330 This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:
  1. Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
    1. Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
    2. Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
    3. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    4. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
    5. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
    6. If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
    7. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
      • WPA - PSK (TKIP)
      • WPA - PSK (AES)
      • WPA2 - PSK (AES)

  2. If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering:
    1. From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model).
    2. If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings).
    3. If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Wep key for ps3


you will need to obtain your wep key no matter what...you can get it from whoever your router company is (if it is a linksys then call the linksys support number and obtain the key) in most cases thought the wep key is located on the router itself near the bar code. It will be a long number, When you get it and enter it in to the network settings then it should pick up the signal
