I am assuming that you legitimately own this copy of Windows,
because as much as I LOVE the gods of Microsoft, I would not
want then to set my house on fire :):)

Please,,,, understand that I must not instruct you in the crime
of stealing Windows. If this is your goal please do NOT read
this reply and your legal problems are you own !!!!

Can you still get into Windows ?
-----------------------------------------------
if so, download a free key retriever called JellyBean
by Alec Ozolins, from:

http://www.magicaljellybean.com/

This tiny program will display all the Microsoft keys on your
machine (or any other machine, if you have access to one)

You may wish to disable your resident anti-virus program
before running it, though, because many Anti-Virus companies
treat key retrievers as undesirable.

The Jellybean is legit and clean as long as you own a legit
license to the target computer and you just lost the CD
case
==========================================

If you can no longer get into Windows (anywhere),
then you can try to call Microsoft with a soft story,
and expect the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the IRS, CSIS,
RCMP,MI5 and MI6, the KGB, the Interpol, Moussat and
the Mafia all at you doorstep in under 10 minutes, not
necessarily in that order.
===========================================

Alternately, you can search Emule, mscracs.com, crack-spider
or the PirateBay.org.
=================

Keep in mind, however any corporate or leaked product key
that has been in the wild for too long, is likely to be blocked
by Microsoft for the purposes of Activation or updates.

Many hacker sites offer random key generators which Microsoft
cannot easily block, but make sure you scan these for viruses
(very carefully) before running them on a good machine.

These key generators also generate the second activation
code specific to your machine, just choose to activate by
phone, not over the internet, then enter your machine ID
(request code) into the keygen, and get back the required
phone activation code.

Another way is to use corporate or special keys, that Microsoft
does not WISH to block, such as internal Microsoft keys,
corporate training keys etc. There is no shortage of these on
Emule or pirates bay either.

In the case of VISTA, check pirates bay for Windows Pantehon.
The pantheon group released VISTA before Microsoft did :):)
using an OEM emulation driver and a key-less version of
windows Vista Ultimate, which Microsoft cannot block,
because all the OEM laptops such as Dell and ASUS
would no longer work. The OEM's rejected any concept of
activation to harrass their customers, and opted to put a secret
code in their BIOS instead.

Pantheon emulates this BIOS at a low level beneath Windows.

Like I said, I am assuming that you really paid for your windows
copy. If you were trying to pirate windows, I obviously want
no part of it. The nice people at Microsoft work very hard at
world domination, and they do not take piracy lightly.

Please rate my answers.

The WEP encryption key is configured in the router's wireless settings.
WEP key is not as strong as the later WPA or even better WPA2 encryption keys.

How do i find my wep key or wpa key


Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

How do i find my SSID, WEP key and WPA key trying to connect ps3 to internet.


You need to log onto your router and determine the WEP or WPA key being used. Your router manual has logon details. Also, the key is sometimes on the bottom of the router.

Cant conect to internet


  • Wii Error Code 51300 - 51399
  • This error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point.

    To solve this error : 

    Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

    If your router is using WEP encryption
  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.

    If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with : 
    WPA - PSK(TKIP)
    WPA - PSK(AES)
    WPA2 - PSK(AES)

    If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings

Security: where to find data needed like WPA


the WPA key, is usually found on the side or the bottom of your wireless router, usually on a pink sticker, with WEP or WPA,
then will have a random numbers and letters, its case sensitive.
other option is login to the router through internet explorer with your routers ip address and under security tab you will find the security key..

All the best
