I cannot connect to the internet on wireless on my Dell precision M50. When I enter the WEP key I get the following message - 'The network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network...


You are trying to connect to a wireless network that has a password (referred to as protection).

Dont worry about the "bits" or the network configuration parts. - thats all overkill.

The long and short of it is that you need a password to log onto your router.

It will either be 5, 10, 13, or 26 characters in length.

If you do not have the password, you can post the version of the router (model number and brand) up here, and someone can help you reset it so that you can put the password into your computer.

First I would check to make sure the "WEP" key is the right number of characters. 5-or-10-or-13-or-26

I downloaded Windows 7 and my wireless laptop won't connect to my 2wire. Where can I get new security key code or info get my laptop to work?


Hey pkkern,
.
Your default 10 digit security is located on the bottom of your router.
.
If you want to change it or for some reason your default key is no longer working we will have to get into the routers configuration homepage.
.
To access this open up your Internet browser and write in this address, (which is your routers address) 192.168.1.254.
.
If your routers homepage does NOT open up check to make sure you have no software firewalls
.
Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
.
Click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel (Status at a Glance) under the Wireless Settings heading.
.
You will see a wireless network security section, use the following information to select a custom wep-key.
.
Change your wireless settings and use the following information if you want to change to a custom WEP key. 64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (For example, 123456789A is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (For example, 456FBCDF123400144445271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length. (For example, GMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption)
128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (For example, 2008SUNSSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

Thanks for using fixya!
If you need information just comment in this thread and I will get back to you, don't forget to leave feedback!

Setting secured wireless connection


You can enable WEP on your router.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.0.1 to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

Save the settings.

I hope this helps!

Cannot get online


The hotels I have stayed in are open access wireless. Basically anyone has access whether they are guests or not. The hotels generally have some sort of internet mgmt that throws out some sort of advertisement before allowing you to get on the internet. Right click the wireless icon and view available networks, you might not even be on the motel's network.
