A wep key is used in some wifi network, actually it is a security code. It allows group of network devices on a local network to exchange messages with each other while hiding the contents from easy viewing by outsiders.

Can't find WEP key for my Belkin router


The WEP key is in the router's wireless setting.
Connect a LAN cable from Belkin to your laptop/computer's LAN port, open a browser on your laptop/computer and enter the Belkin's configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default admin password.
You can now configure the wireless settings to protect your wireless network and Internet from unauthorized access. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings. To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I am trying to connect my archos device to my belking 54g wireless router for internet access. the archos is asking for a windows wep key and hexidecimal wep key. where can i find these?


The windows wep key is something that is normally set up when you configure your router. It is something you yourself add when you want to encrypt your network. Here is a good guide for doing that:

Note that there are different levels of encryption you can use. Wep is only one of them.

Unable to find WEP Key


The WEP encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
I recommend you use WPA or WPA2 encryption, it is much stronger than WEP.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

Install router in to clearwire home box


If it is a wireless router with a Cable connection, first check the back of the router and find the "YELLOW" or In Port and run a cat 5 cable from the back of your cable modem to the "IN" port on the router. Next power the router up and provided you already have a wireless card in your computer, belkin usually is a browser based interface located at 192.162.2.1, Netgear routers most always are www.routerlogin.com.

Once into the interface it's not too difficult to set your paramaters, wep key and network name. Once you've named your network say MYHOMENETWORK or something like that your computer should be able to find and access the router and internet connection by you providing the same wep key as you entered while setting up the router an example of a wep key would be f9dbbb9462. Use the identical key when connection from your computer to the router.

Unable to encrypt router


you have to check if you have the wep key enabled. when you put in the wep key, it should also be enabled so that your wireless network should say security-enabled wireless network. make sure to disconnect and connect again on your network after changing the settings to refresh your connection. hope this helps.

Wep key to connect xbox


WEP key is the security key you had set when you had set up the network. You need to access the wireless router page
1.Click start >Run>type cmd >hit enter
A black command prompt window comes up
2.Type Ipconfig and hit enter
3. Note down the Ip address next to default gateway that is usually 198.168.1.1
4. Open internet explorer , in the address bar type the default gatway (198.168.1.1)
5 Hit go
6. The belkin password screen would pop up,
7. enter the default user name and password
8. go to the wirless page and check the WEP key

If you donot know the default admin and password , its time to call belkin and they would let you know how to get into the router to check the WEP key
