You can try to search the web for wep key finder, remove and set a new key, or you can reset the router to its factory/default config which clears any settings you created.

Usually it is easier to reset the WEP key on the router. Connect to your router with a web browser and reset the WEP key to something you won't forget.

Forgot the wep key code.


Hi there,
If you forgot the wep key to your internet your best solution would be to reset your router and restore all of your settings to their default value. There should be a rest hole on the back of the router. simply hold down the reset button and then log back into the router using the default ip address (try either 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) and the default username and password. Once you do that you will have to go and set all of your values again such as your network name and your new wep password.
Hope this helps!!

If you forgot WEP key for your router you just need to log into the router and look up the key. If you do not know the Admin password for your router then you will have to do a hard reset of the router.

The links below are examples of what steps you woudl need to go through to look up the WEP info on your router.

Forgot my wep key. How do I get it?


You can sometimes retrieve it from the router settings, but barring that, there really is no easy way to get it.

Note that I said easy. If your router is indeed using WEP, you can sniff the packets coming off it with sniffers and once you have enough packets, then you *might* be able to decode the WEP key code. This usually doesn't work out very well though.

Forgot my wep key for my sony playstaion 3


Hi,
If you need to find your WEP key that you setup when you configured your network, you would need to first log into the router itself using the proper username and password. Look in the Security section of the router's interface to find your key.
or...
Your WEP key is usually created by you or whoever set it up. If you forgot it you might want to try E-mailing the company to get a replacement.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Need wep key code


The wep key is set by the system admin when the router is installed, contact the systen admin to get the wep key.

If you forgot it you have to reset it but logging into the router's setup through a browser by typing its IP address, then going to Wireless Network Security and changing the WEP key.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

I forgot the password I set up for the wireless


Connect to the router typing 192.168.1.1 in the browser window with ID admin and password as admin. Go to Wireless->Security. And there you will find WEP key. The WEO key has to be seen. If it is **** format then just below it you will fing a box saying WEP key in clear. Tick this box and your WEP key will appear in clear. Note it down as it is generally 10 digits long.

I need wep key westell model 327w


Unfortunately, no one could not provide you any WEP key. WEP is a key that you set to your router so that no one could connect to your wireless network. As an owner of the network, you should know what your network key was.

If you forgot your WEP key, you need to reset the router to factory default, configure it and set a new WEP key.

That is the only way. Thank you!
