Informed WEP key is a 10 digit number. could 231408&sid nos. & characters be my WEP key?


A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks.A WEP key is a sequence of hexadecimal digits. These digits include the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F.

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
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.

Securing my wifi


IF you're using the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP), you'll need to start by enabling it at your Wireless Access Point (WAP) first, and how you do that will depend on the WAP in question and how it is normally configured.
When you do this, make sure you make a record of the WEP key you create as you'll need to enter this key on to each of your clients.
Once that's done, WEP is enabled through your wireless drivers in Windows,
I am certain you definitely want to make sure that your network has a WEP network key -- if the key is blank, the network is wide open.
Here's how to configure each Windows XP client: Right-click the connection in the network connecton window and click View Available Wireless Networks to configure the connection. On the Wireless Network Connection dialog box that appears, type a key into the Network Key box, and again into the Confirm Network Key box. (it is usually 10 letters/numbers in length)
good luck, hope this helps please leave rating.

I am needing the key or WEP to re-connect to wireless


If it was not setup with a WEP key then try "admin" that is the password for Linksys when not set up. The purpose of the WEP key is to install a password to type in before anyone can use your network. So if "admin" does not work then you have to ask the person who set up the Wireless Network what the WEP key is.

I want to connect a PSP on a router with wep


sure you can do that but you will need to know the wep key first

if you dont then contact you network administrator to get the wep key from them.....


if it is a new wireless router then the wep key should be on the back of the router (its a 10 digit hexa).

enter the wepkey and you will get wireless connection.

Here are the diffenent types of Security Settings possible with a wireless router: (how to set this depends on the brand of router)

Security Mode: You may choose from Disable, WEP, WPA-Personal, WPA2-Personal, WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Enterprise, or RADIUS. All devices on your network must use the same security mode in order to communicate.
Capture(wlansec.wpapersharekey) WPA Personal:
Capture(helpwpa.phase8) WPA Algorithm: You may choose from TKIP or AES.
Capture(helpwpa.phase9) WPA Pre-Shared Key: Choose a unique key to authenticate with other devices on your network. The Pre-Shared Key must be between 8 and 63 characters in length.
Capture(helpwpa.phase10) Group Key Renewal: This settings determines how often your group key changes.


Capture(wlansec.wpa2persharekey) WPA2 Personal:
Capture(helpwpa.phase11) WPA2 Algorithm: You may choose from AES or TKIP+AES. Choose TKIP+AES if you have both WPA and WPA2 devices on your network.
Capture(helpwpa.phase12) WPA2 Pre-Shared Key: Choose a unique key to authenticate with other devices on your network. The Pre-Shared Key must be between 8 and 63 characters in length.
Capture(helpwpa.phase13) Group Key Renewal: This settings determines how often your group key changes.


Capture(wlansec.wparadius) WPA Enterprise:
Capture(helpwpa.phase14) WPA Algorithm: You may choose from TKIP or AES.
Capture(helpwpa.phase15) RADIUS Server Address: The IP address of your RADIUS server.
Capture(helpwpa.phase16) RADIUS Server Port: The port your RADIUS server uses.
Capture(helpwpa.phase17) Shared Secret: The shared secret set on your RADIUS server.
Capture(helpwpa.phase18) Key Renewal Timeout: Determines how often your keys should be renewed.


Capture(wlansec.wpa2radius) WPA2 Enterprise:
Capture(helpwpa.phase19) WPA2 Algorithm: You may choose from AES or TKIP+AES. Choose TKIP+AES if you have both WPA and WPA2 devices on your network.
Capture(helpwpa.phase20) RADIUS Server Address: The IP address of your RADIUS server.
Capture(helpwpa.phase21) RADIUS Server Port: The port your RADIUS server uses.
Capture(helpwpa.phase22) Shared Secret: The shared secret set on your RADIUS server.
Capture(helpwpa.phase23) Key Renewal Timeout: Determines how often your keys should be renewed.


Capture(wlansec.wep) WEP:
Capture(helpwpa.phase24) Default Transmit Key: The key you would like to use for transmitting WEP keys.
Capture(helpwpa.phase25) WEP Key Bit: You may select from 64-Bit or 128-Bit encryption.
Capture(helpwpa.phase26) Passphrase: You may enter a passphrase consisting of any keyboard character to be used to generate a hex WEP key. Passphrase option is only supported when you are only using Linksys devices on your network.
Capture(helpwpa.phase27) Key 1-4: You may enter a WEP key manually. You must use only hex characters (0-9 and A-F). 64-Bit WEP requires 10 hex characters. 128-Bit WEP requires the use of 26 hex characters.


Capture(wlansec.radius) RADIUS:
Capture(helpwpa.phase28) RADIUS Server Address: The IP address of your RADIUS server.
Capture(helpwpa.phase29) RADIUS Server Port: The port your RADIUS server uses.
Capture(helpwpa.phase30) Shared Secret: The shared secret set on your RADIUS server.

Problems with wireless


hi dear

try this

  1. Before you attempt to use any Wi-Fi network, find out what the SSID, Channel, Mode and WEP key are. Some Wi-Fi locations do not require a WEP key. Many Wi-Fi providers have this information on their web site or when you purchase access you will be provided the information.
  2. Ensure you have a firewall program installed and running. This will protect your data.
  3. Start up your laptop and once booted, look for the Wi-Fi network icon in the bottom right of the screen.
  4. Click on the Wifi Connection icon on bottom right of screen and you should see a window that indicates connection, strength and duration. Click on the Properties tab.

  5. wirelessnetworkscreenbl.jpg

  6. The next window will show the type of networking card installed. Click on the Wireless Networks tab.

  7. 02ee437.jpg

  8. Once the Wireless Network Connection Properties window is open you will have two options depending on how you set up your laptop.
    • If you do not see any networks listed in Preferred or Available networks, you will have to manually add the SSID. Click on Add. You will have to enter the SSID and WEP key (if required). Click OK and you should then see the network you just added in the Available networks box.

    • 4d25eb5.jpg

    • If you see the correct SSID showing in the Available Networks, then you need to click on Configure in order to enter the WEP key if that is required.

  9. In the next window, enter the SSID for the Wi-Fi network you want to access. Make sure you do not have CAPS lock or NUM lock while entering the information. If a network key is required, click on "Data Encryption and then enter the Network key you have been provided with. Again make sure you do not have CAPS or NUM lock on. Click OK when entered. If you have entered the key incorrectly a message will pop up and you will need to re-enter the key.

  11. Next go to Start - and where it says Connect To click on that and you should see choices like in the graphic below. Click on Wireless Network Connection and it should work.

There are occasions when the connection doesn't work, in these cases check your firewall software and make sure it allows you to connect to the Wi-Fi network. To check this, disable your firewall software and check the connection again. If you can connect with the firewall program disabled, you change your settings. If your firewall program is not the problem check the SSID and WEP key information that you entered. Both of these are case sensitive. If you had obtained SSID information from the Internet, check with someone in the establishment to see if the SSID has been changed.
