The WEP key allows printers and computers to join your wireless network. I imagine you are not connecting the printer to your laptop but to the wireless box that provides WiFi connection to your Laptop and other PCs on your wireless network. If you never set up a password or Wep Key yourself to secure your wireless network, it means your network is secure by default and the administration page of the wireless box (router or access point) will contain this information in one of its WIFI/security Tabs , for example the user's manual for your Wireless box will give you the IP address you need to type in a Browser(like IE) to access this page (that may also be protected by a default password unless you changed it) or this can be found at the physical bottom of this same box as is often the case with wireless Boxes provided by your ISP.
once in the admin page of your Box providing the wireless for your network you can access the security tab to know or change this WEP KEY. if you dont know the IP address of your Box, type ipconfig/all in MSDOS (cmd.exe) and look up the gateway address for your wireless network card. this will most likely be the IP of your wireless box or access point. (often like 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 or something similar) Hope this help, feel free to bring further information for further help and rate the Help if it was of any use, cheers

Where is the WEP/WPA code on a Netgear router


The WEP / WPA security information can be obtained by accessing your Netgear router setup page. You'll need the router's IP address to access the setup page. From your computer, go to Start > Run > type "cmd" (w/o the quotes), hit Enter > DOS black screen appears, type "ipconfig" (w/o the quotes), hit Enter. Take note of the Default Gateway IP address - that is your router's IP address.
Pull up a browser and enter the IP address in the address bar, hit Enter. You will then be asked for your router's Username and Password, enter the required information. If you don't know the info, please contact your router manufacturer for assistance. Once you're in the router setup page, go to the wireless security settings to check the WEP or WPA code.
Should you still need further assistance on this matter, please contact your router manufacturer.
I hope this helps.

I have a windows xp and i would like to setup a WEP/WPA key


When youclick Refresh network list, then Choose yourwireless network and then click Connect to your secured WirelessNetwork, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I'm trying to connct a laptop to a wireless network and installation asks for the WEP key for an SBC 2wire router.How do I do that?


Hi gregclark56,

If you are trying to setup a Router for the first time, you can type your own Key as the WEP Key (You will need this key when you connect to this Wireless Network). The WEP Keys turns the Network to Security Enabled Network. If you're trying to connect to a Wireless Router that has already been setup, you will need to contact the Network Administrator/Owner for the WEP Key.

Hope this helps.

Please post back if you have any questions or if you require any further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cant get my printer s305 to connect to wireless,wont accept wep key ,, any way round it, please help


Good day! There are things you need to check to successfully connect the printer for wireless connection.
1. Make sure the wifi light on the printer is solid orange before continuing. If not, go to Setup > Network Setup > Reset Network Adapter to Defaults. Wifi light should turn off, then wait for it to turn solid orange.
2. WEP key can be ASCII or HEX(hexadecimal) depending on what was assigned to it. You may be using an incorrect WEP key. Just to make sure, access your router setup page and double-check the WEP key assigned to it. If you don't know how to access the router setup page, you can always ask assistance from either your internet service company or the router's manufacturer.
Once you get the correct WEP key and wifi light solid orange on the printer, try connecting the printer again for wireless connection. Good luck!

You stated you have a mac. Is your Mac a laptop that provides wireless? Or are you on a Mac desk top connected to a router that has wireless included with it.. If you have either than you need to go into your network and sharing to set-up the wireless printer. This will give you access to your router via desktop or your wireless settings via laptop,
Once there if you are already using wireless settings you are going to have to allow your printer in through your wep or wap encryption settings. This was set up when you first started using your wireless to keep out intruders.

What is a ssid and a wep key. I am dumb.


Hi,
SSID is the wireless networks name you want to access.

WEP is a special hexadecimal key to secure your network means if you want to connect a wireless network you will have to put this key.
It will be provided by the admin

WEP key fro netgear DG834G v3 WIRELESS ROUTER/MODEM


Okay, first you will need to access your router (usually 192.168.0.1 or something like that) you will be asked for a user name and password. (admin password respectively if you never set these up previously)

From there you would click on Wireless Settings and scroll down to WEP Key. Whatever is typed in Key 1 is your WEP key. Write that down. Plug in those numbers for your printer and you should be go to go.
