Finding serial number and encription code that works

Get to the place where the program asks for serial number and WEP and the hookup does not occur. Am not convinced that I am using the right serial number although I'm using the one on the back of the device.

I think you're getting confused.

You don't need to give the device serial number to a router. If you're using WEP it's going to be wanting one of two things. A key or the MAC address. The MAC address will be printed on the device in the format xx:xx:xx:xx:xx with a series of letters and numbers. If it's looking for a key, that is the security code set up by your router. Either retrieve that by using a wired connection to your router and accessing it directly, or use the hardware reset button on the back of your router which will wipe out the encryption settings. Either way, it will not accept the serial number because that's not what it's asking for.

Again notebook computer is asking for wep key to connect to internet

On the bottom of your router, you should have a series of numbers near the barcode & serial number. One of those numbers should be labeled WEP or something similar. You want to enter that code into your computer exactly how it is on the router. This will only work if nobody has changed the code in the past.

Hi this is miguel my problem is that i have the wi fi and is unsecured i want to protected and i dont know how to do it

probably you need to coonect to your wifi router and set a password
go to start click run type in cmd and when you press enter you will get a DOS box (black and white text) type IPconfig and press enter in the box
if it scrolls past fast scroll up to a place where it says Default gateway under your wireless adapter connection (you may have more than one such as ethernet etc.)
this will be a number something like
type this number into the URL bar of your internet browser (where it says blah now)
it should prompt you with your routers config page it may ask for a password, if you have not set one try admin admin otherwise look up your router here and it should tell you the username and password
once in
find the section for router wireless options select WPA (it easier) and type in a phrase that you will remember. set or apply save and exit where possible.
the next time you connect to your wireless conection it will prompt you for this phrase. (only once then your laptop will be paired and it wont ask again) anyone else trying to connect will get the same, unless they know your WEP password then they wont get on.

What is our wep

Wep is a type of encription usually between a router and a computer.
See wikipedia.
the problem occurs when you try to tye more than one computer or add a printer to a router system/network. The wep must always be the same between all devices in a network.
its a password between devices.
It is always best to write it down, the password and secure it; some companys like verizon use the customer's phone number---- not smart

Set your router to WEP and encription strenth to 64bit, enter a WEP key "or passphrase to generate a WEP key" its a 10 digit password for your wireless security. Oh also nintendo will only work on chanel mode G&B not G not B but G&B.

I am trying to find out my internet connection password to acess Safari on my itouch but nobody in my family seems to know the password. How can i find the password on my computer ?

All you have to do, depending on your connection. If you are wireless through your Gateway or modem, the wireless encription key is physically on the modem itself. If you use a router to connect wirelessly, you will need that WEP key, You can also go to your wireless setting or view your available network, the go to properties. If you have connect wirelessly before, you should have the passcode written down Then when you find it, turn on In settings, on your I touch, turn on wifi, then it will ask for the code. Put the number in.

Wireless connection to the 2 Wire modem


Most of the 2wire gateways have the WEP key or the encryption code on the bottom of it. It would a 10 digit Number of a Five Character one within square brackets.
Other wise you can go to the gateway page by accessing on another system which is already going online using the gateway or wired to it and in the gateway page under wireless you would find the WEP key incase the default key on the bottom of the 2wire does not work.

Do reply incase this has resolved your issue or you need more help.

Thank you
