If you access point came pre-configured from your ISP, I suspect that the WEP key is on a sticker underneath the router, or was provided with the router itself (check in the box if you still have it). This is the 'key' that secures the wireless network, and will probably be quite long and random-looking.

Hi, i just purcchased a wireless internet mod. from sprint, i have a willess for my xbox already, i got the internet up and running, but when i went to connect the wireless to pc so i could join xbox live...


Hello,

I apologize but your description is a little confusing. You state you are trying to connect the xbox to the wireless connection through your PC?

If you are trying to connect your xbox to the internet through your wireless router but it ask for a WPA key, you will need to enter this key in order to gain internet access. If you do not know they key, you will need to access your router configuration page, log in and reset or generate the key.

You can do this by following the steps below.
Open up your internet browser on your PC and go to your gateway IP address. This will usually be 192.168.1.1. A log in window should come up and you will need to log in. Once you log in, there should be a section for wireless internet settings/security. You will be able to add the pass key or reset it.

If this is not your wireless internet connection(this is a neighbors internet) then they will have to give you the pass key.

Regards,

NEED NETWORK key SO MY SON CAN RECEIVE WIRELESS iNTERNET ACCESS FOR HIS ds games- IT WORKS AUTOMATICALLY FOR MY NETWORK SO i DON'T HAVE IT


open internet explorer and at the top, type in 192.168.1.1 that should open the router web page and ask you for a user name and password. try entering the username as admin and leave password blank. if that doesn't work then try admin-admin or admin-password clarkcanhelp.jpg
if you can get in, you should see options you can select like wireless. click on the wireless tab, then wireless security. it should tell you the wireless key or wep key. it should be like a 10 digit number or something. when you find the number, go into the options for the DS and search for wireless networks. you will see you "ssid" and when you click on it or click connect, it will ask you for that "key" enter it and your done.
hope this helps

Not able to find wep code to connect my lap top to internet


Hello,
If you require the WEP key for the wireless network you will have to log in to the router interface and retrieve it. You can try the following steps..
1) Open internet explorer on any computer connected wired to the router. ( IF no computer is connected then connect your laptop through an Ethernet cable to the LAN slot on the router) 2) Delete everything from the address bar and type http://192.168.2.1 and hit enter. 3) Towards the left side under wireless click on security. 4) Now it will ask for the login password, do not type anything..just hit enter. 5) Now you will be in wireless security page. You should see Key 1, Key 2, Key 3 and Key 4. The check mark selected on either of the four with number or numbers and letters in it are the password. Make a note of it. 6) Now connect to the wireless network using the keys u made a note of.
Hope this helped.

Received Nintendo DSiXL for a Christmas gift. Having trouble connecting to the internet. Asking for a security Key? ?


Under nintendo settings internet connection, scan for hot spot and unless your wireless router is unsecured you need to provide the wep security key or change the settings. Your security key is the 12-13 character password used to setup the wireless router if you secured it. If you do not have a router and your picking up a signal you will not be able to log on without the key.

I am trying to connect my laptop to wireless internet, but it keeps asking for the security key. What is it?


an access key is configured in the wireless routers web console to allow only the users with the key to connect to it. sometimes referred to as a "WEP KEY" or "WPA key" or "authentication code" To login to your web console, join your computer to your wireless router with a network cable (yellow below) to an Ethernet port 1,2,3 or 4 ef8efd2.jpg open your browser and surf to (instead of www) 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 (most common) you should presented with a login screen most common username and password is admin and admin a482702.jpgonce you have logged in look for your wireless security setup screen such as this.....5be26fc.jpg
look for the Wireless and Security Screens to enter or check your access security code, enter a code or review the existing one. Then once you save your changes you can connect with your laptop, now that you know the security key.6679972.jpg

Need a network key


Since you want to access the router setup page and get the wireelss security for your laptop you can try this:
Open a web browser like internet explorer or Netscape. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. In the picture above the address bar has http://www.google.com in it. Just replace all of that with the ip address of your router. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1.
You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now. By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
When you're already on the setup page of the router youc an go to Wireless tab and click on Wireless security and there you can find the security key that you need....

If the default password didn't work you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds so it will be back to its default settings with default password which is admin.

But if you successfully log in to the router page just go to the Wireless tab and there you can find all the wireless settings of your router including the wireless security key...
