Where do I find the WEPkey for Arris TM502G? The question is posted all over the internet, but no real answers.

The WEP key is a encryption key that is configured in the wireless settings of the wireless router. This setting is then applied to the wireless card in the computer so it can connect to the wireless router.

Your computer doesn't have a WEP key.
If you are using a wireless access point or wireless router, that may have a WEP key.

I have just purchased a new computer and am trying to connect it to an existing Lynksys wireless network. To do so it asks for a WEP key or WPA key. Where do I find this?

Yes, I've also had some problems with Linksys. You need to configure the properties of your wireless network so that it automatically obtains the IP and DNS info. Go to your network connections, right click on your wireless network, go to properties, go to Internet Protocol Version 4, click Properties, and select the "automatically obtain" options.

This should fix your problem. However, it may not. The problem can be something else. But you do not need a WEP key or anything. I just talked to a representative from the company a few days ago and they said that you must always select the automatically obtain choices. If this doesn't work, I recommend calling Linksys. They will be able to help you and they are your best option.
Also, remember that if your computer is not recognizing the network, always try resetting your modem and restarting your computer.

Ok this is my problem i have a time warner arris tm602 modem i want to set up the wireless connection to my xbox 360 i need the wep key for this i want to know the default gateaway and/or the default...

The default username and password for most routers I have seen is admin and admin provided you have not changed it. All are lowercase letters.Also I suggest you use the WPA or WPA2+ encryption if its available. The WEP is easy to crack wirelessly and I had a gala time cracking my neighbor's router in less than 3 hours!

How to secure my d-link wireless adapter with my Arris 550a modem

To make your wireless router secure you need to use your browser and type in the router's IP configuration address.
Then you need to change the default Admin password,
change SSID and turn off SSID broadcast,
setup the encryption (use WAP or WAP2 if your wireless card supports WAP) if not use WEP 128 bit encryption
and for added protection use MAC address filtering.

Securing wireless network connection

You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually or into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved.
Let me know how you make out.

Go to the router's web interface (, in the wireless section go to Wireless Security. Enable WEP, you will create a WEP key for your wireless network, then that key will be asked to any wireless device that tries to use your wireless network.
