I am trying to find what my wep key is but i cant


The WEP key is defined by the person who set your wireless router up. You will not be able to find out what the WEP key is, but you CAN change it if you have physical access to the router. If you are trying to connect to your wireless router and can't remember the WEP, then walk over to the router and on the back or bottom of it is a small little hole that you can fit a pen or paper clip into. Press the paper clip into the little hole for 10 seconds and release. This will reset all the settings on your router back to default and will allow you to access your wireless connection.

Note: doing this will take away all of your wireless security so make sure that you know what you're doing before messing with it!

Thanks and please rate if this helps you at all :).

Can i secure my network using wrt54g? some unknown user is accessing my network. How can i have security on my network? thanks.


To secure your Linksys WRT54G wireless router, follow these steps:
  1. Open your Internet browser and enter the following in the address bar: http://192.168.1.1.
  2. Note:

    If you have changed the IP address of your wireless router, enter that into the address bar. By default, the address is 192.168.1.1.

  3. Enter the user ID and password for your router. If you haven't changed it, the default password is "admin". We will change it later if you haven't already changed it.
  4. You should now see the "Basic Setup" Web page display in your browser. Scroll down the page until you see "Maximum Number of DHCP Users".
  5. This option will assign a specific number of IP address to computers. If more than this number of computers tries to connect to your router, they will not be able to.
  6. Count the number of computers that will connect to the router, and type it into the "Maximum Number of DHCP Users textbox".
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the Web page and click "Save Settings". Once the settings have been saved, click "Continue" to return to the Web page.
  8. At the top of the Web page, click the "Administration" option in the menu bar.
  9. On the "Management" Web page, you should see two password text boxes. This is where you should change your administrative password. Type in a new secure password into both boxes.
  10. Once you have changed your password, click "Save Settings" at the bottom of the Web page.
  11. You may be prompted to login again, if you are then enter you new password in the password field.
  12. Navigate back to the "Management" Web page by clicking the "Administrative" option in the menu.
  13. We will now encrypt your connection to your router setup from your computer. To do this click the "HTTPS" checkbox next to the "Access Server" option.
  14. Once again, click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the Web page.
  15. You won't get the settings saved page again because the URL in the address bar is not longer correct. Since you have changed your connection to HTTPS, it you need to specify that in the address when you connect to the router setup.
  16. In your browser, change the address to: https://192.168.1.1.
  17. If you get a security error, ignore the error and continue to the Web page.
  18. Login with your password and then click the "Wireless" menu option.
  19. Beside the "Wireless Network Name (SSID)" option, type in a name for you network connection.
  20. Click the "Save Settings" button and the "Continue" button to return to the "Basic Wireless Settings" page.
  21. Click the "Wireless Security" sub-menu option at the top of the page. This is where we will provide the most important security setting.
  22. Next to "Security Mode", select "WPA - Personal" from the drop-down list. If you have trouble connecting to your wireless connection, you can try selecting "WEP", but your connection will be much less secure.
  23. Next to "WPA Algorithms", select "AES". Once again if you have trouble connecting to your wireless router, select "TKIP".
  24. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long "WPA Shared Key" with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation.
  25. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  26. Click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the Web page, and then the "Continue" button.
Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your "WPA Shared Key" exactly as you specified it

I bought a new Toshiba Satellite L550D-11N


Unfortunately you have to know your security key, it's there for your privacy protection, like passwords to your e-mail or other services.
You have to ask the person who set up the router about the password (key), or ask that person to change it to a new one - and this time write it down and put in a safe place, where you can find it in the future, like on a piece of paper pasted on the router box.
If you change the key on the router, and have other computer(s) using this connection, you will have to re-enter the new key on those machines.

Need to change password from previously changed password


To secure the wireless network or to change any settings on the router you will need to access the router set up interface.
Open the set up interface of the router . Make sure that your computer will be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable.

Once you open the set up page of the router , you will find the place to change the wireless settings of the router. In case of Linksys wireless router , you will see the Wireless Tab at the top.

SSID : It is the name of the wireless network. This name will be shown on your wireless computer or the wireless device so that you can identify your own wireless network. All the routers come with their factory default settings. For example , the Linksys router will come with the Linksys network name.
It will be better to change the wireless network name.

Do not type anything in the Passphrase box. Type your network key in the Key 1 Box. If you set the encryption to 65 bits, your network key will be 10 digit hexadecimal number. that means you can use the combination of 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and letters a,b,c,d,e,f only. remember it should be exactly 10.
If you set the Encryption to 128 bit, your network key will be the combination of 26 digits. You will need to remember the network key.

WPA

This is one of the most secured type of encryption.
Open the set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security mode to WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box. in this box you can type any password for your wireless network. The password should be the combination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8 characters.
This security type is supported by WINDOWS XP SP2 and above Operating system.

WPA2
This is one of the highly secured type of encryption.
Open the set up interface of the router. Change the wireless security mode to WPA personal. You will find the passphrase box.In this box you can type any password for your wireless network. The password should be the combination of number and letters and it should be 8 or more than 8 characters. Keep the Algorithm to TKIP.

Cant get online with ps3 since ive purchased a new NETGEAR dg834


Hi, please perform the steps below to configure settings on the router:

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:
1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router usually by typing 'http://192.168.1.1' or 'http://www.routerlogin.com' in the address bar.
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on Wireless Settings (under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key) is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the router's wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new Password and click apply. You will then have to use the same Password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.
Please scan for the wireless network on the PS3 and connect to the wireless network.
