Go to If you have already configured the router for internet access, then just click on "configuration" otherwise, go through the steps to configure it according to your ISP's instructions, then click on configuration. then wireless. Then go down to privacy settings.

Pick which authentication type to use ( I recomened open)
Then pick the highest encyption meathod that all of your wireless devices are capable of. 64-bit, 128-bit or 256-bit.

Most devices use 64 and 128 bit, but if all of your devices use 256, then use it. Then create a wireless key to use.
If key select is selected, the WEP Key is treated as a string of text characters, and the number of characters must be either 5 (for 64-bit encryption) or 13 (for 128-bit encryption) or 29 (for 256-bit encryption).

If not selected, the WEP key is treated as a string of hexadecimal characters, and the number of characters must be either 10 (for 64-bit encryption), 26 (for 128-bit encryption), or 58 (for 256-bit encryption). The only allowable hexadecimal characters are 0-9 and A-F. (My hint is to use hexadecimal, it is eaiser)

If you would like to create a new WEP key go to this site ( and type in a passphrase and click generate. it will generate 4 64-bit keys and 1 128-bit key.

choose the best bit 64 or 128 bit, then copy and paste it into the correct key box(es)

Where do I find the Network Key (or WEP or WPA Key) number for my Belkin F5D8236 router?

Hello cyndi0417.
If you have installed your router, and have a computer connected to it through one of the wired ports, you can follow these steps to find your WEP or WPA key.
Step 1.
Open a web browser of your choice, and in the address bar type in "" (without the quotation marks).
Step 2.
Select "Login" from the upper right corner of the screen. Unless you have changed the administrator password, you can just click on the submit button.
Step 3.
Look under the "Wireless" heading on the left side of the page. There will be a selection for Security, which will contain the WEP or WPA settings. The numbers/letters in the boxes is your key.

Informed WEP key is a 10 digit number. could 231408&sid nos. & characters be my WEP key?

A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks.A WEP key is a sequence of hexadecimal digits. These digits include the numbers 0-9 and the letters A-F.

The length of a WEP key depends on the type of WEP security (called "encryption") utilized:
  • 40- / 64-bit WEP: 10 digit key
  • 104- / 128-bit WEP: 26 digit key
  • 256-bit WEP: 58 digit key
WEP keys are chosen by a network administrator, it would have been provided by the Internet Service providers, Hence it can't be as what you stated.

Using the HP C7280, lost power and now its asking me to input a WEP #. Where do i get this number?

Check with your network administrator or the person who installed the Photosmart C7280 on your network.

A WEP key (in short) is a security code allowing a group of devices to communicate with each other while maintaining privacy from a device outside of the network. Usually a WEP is a string of digits and the letters A-F the length of which is determined by the level of encryption.

My usb adapter (2wire 802.11g usb wireless adpter) is having problems.

you cant change the wep key on the upstairs pc unless you change it on the 2wire 1st. the pc wep key has to match whatever the 2wire has it set to. go to the 2wire router settings throught the downstairs pc that is working to be able to see what the wep key is set to, then when you get the key or set a new one enter that key into the upstairs pc.
