You can log into your router to obtain the WEP key. Usually if you type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser it will take you to the log in screen for your linksys router. The username will be: admin and the password: admin as long as it was not changed. If that username and password does not work then you will need to reset the router by pressing the reset button on the back of it for 10 seconds and then that username and password should work.

What is my wep key


A WEP key is a security code generated in your wireless router.
You need this code in order to connect to your security enabled, wireless network.
If you log into your router you should be able to find it in the wireless security settings.
It can be a word, phrase, or a bunch of random characters.

Where can I find the WEP key on my router? Router security key, router password


Where can I find the WEP key on my router?

If you have a wireless router at home you will need to have a WEP key setup on your router. WEP stands for "Wired Equivalent Privacy" and WEP is a security protocol used to secure wireless networks. When you setup a router for wireless, you normally specify a key(password) so anyone that wishes to join your network has to enter the key. You normally set the WEP key during the router setup phase. You may have set it up and forgot it, or want to reset it. In this article I will go over the steps to find out the WEP key or change it. Your router may use a different security protocol than WEP so don't worry, you still need a KEY in order to access the network.

-On most routers(reference your user manual) you can access the router configuration page by going to the gateway address. The gateway address is the IP address assigned to your router. In a lot of the cases, this address is 192.168.1.1 but depends on your router.
There are a couple of ways to find out this IP address.
-Reference your router manual
-In Microsoft Windows, go to Start > Run and in the run box type "cmd" or "command". A black DOS windows should open. In this window, type "ipconfig /all". Look near the top and you should see a "gateway address" item. This number is the ip address of your router.

Once you know your gateway address, open up your internet browser as if you were going to go to a website. In the URL(address) bar, type the gateway address and hit enter(see image below). A log in box should now show. Again, reference your router manual if you do not know the administrative password. Enter in your password and username.

Once you log in you now have access to the router settings and you can configure what you please. What we are looking for in this article is the wireless security settings. In the wireless security settings page you should be able to see the password for your wireless network and change it. If you see no password go ahead and set one up.
**You can also look around and modify other settings. You can change the wireless security, give your wireless network a name(SSID field) and even with some routers have built in testing features to test the connection at home.
I would recommend that if your router has a default password for admin/configuration access, that you go ahead and create a new one. The default router passwords are usually very simple and this information can be easily found on the internet by anyone. People who set up home networks tend to leave this as is and it is a security risk.


TIPS
-If you can't connect to the router and you know the gateway address, try plugging the computer into the router directly using a Ethernet cable(LAN/patch cable). If you are still having trouble, you can perform a power cycle. Turn off your modem, router and computer. After 10 seconds turn on your modem, after 30 seconds turn on your router and after another 30 seconds turn on your computer. Try to access the router now. This also helps resolve other quirky router issues.
-Make sure all the network cables, phone lines(if using DSL) and coaxial cables(cable/Broadband) are plugged in and secured firmly.

-If you set up a password and username for your routers administrative access and can't remember it, you can reset the username and password back to factory default by performing a factory reset. On most routers this can be achieved by pressing and holding the small reset button on the back of the router for 15 seconds. Please reference router user manual for more information.

I hope this article was informative. Thanks for reading.

Regards,
G33k

Lost password


Hi there,
The default password is usually "admin" for the username or "admin" for the password. Sometimes it can be either both or one or the other. If you can't log into the Control Panel because you lost the password, look on the back of the router. You should see a small pinhole. If you push and hold that for about thirty seconds you can reset the router to factory default settings. This will reset the password to your control panel but it will also reset your internet connection. You will need to reset your internet connection again.
If you're referring to the password (being your WPA2 or WEP Key) that has been forgotten, go into the control panel. Under the security section you should see an option to change the password for your WPA2 or WEP. Change that and you should good to go.

Wep key


There is a reset button somewhere on the router. It's little, it's recessed, and you'll need a pencil to press it. After you do, your username will be "admin" and password will be "admin". Be sure you go back in and change it.

Ok, you must reset the router up again, you need to log into router, with your browser, set default, login and password, go to the securities TAB, and set your WEP/WAP KEY. Once generated, copy/paste to a notepad document, save that. it's a 128 bit number. Then save your routers new configuration. Reboot your PC, now try to WiFi logon to the router's network, when asked for your "Passkey" your, WEP/WAP KEY, simply copy/paste back that, 128 bit or 16 bit hex number, key, that, you saved in notepad. reboot, There you are done.

I lost my belkin router key how can i retrieve the key


Hi theresa816,

If you lost the key, then the best thing to do is to reset the router back to it's original factory default. Usually the reset button on the back of the router, hold it down for 10 seconds, and it should reset. Then go into the router and set back up your WEP key in order to put in on your laptop or desktop for access.

Good Luck,

Mark

I just got a laptop and I was trying to get online with my di-624


Hi,
default username : admin
password : leave it blank
log into router GUI and change the wep key, make it to 64 bit key as thats much easy to remember or you can go for WAP and can use any password(alphabetic or alphanumeric)

If that doesn't work, reset the router from the bottom reset button.
and reconfigure your router.

Hope this works.
Your feedback is appreciated.

Can't access router via 192.168.1.1


Hi Again

Answer is simple; network security (WEP or WPA) key is different than regular password. Entry should be Hexadecimal, However you can use pass phrase generator by entering regular characters or you can enter directly. For example if you we want to put to "password" as network key hexadecimal input will be exactly 2B204A3F1042643E480FDD655E for 128 Bit WEP. Since you are unable to reach the router. Please reset it first. so it will be accessible from your computer without Network key. Network key will be enough for the 1st line
Hope you will resolve the issue.

Good Luck
