You must set it, it's a customer option. If you have forgotten it or someone else has setup the router the just reset it and configure it from the start.

SOURCE: I need my WEP key

So access the computer that the router is installed on. Open the program that managed the network ( I have seen these both as a program installed on the computer and as an Internet accessed destination). Select add device, once you have done that the key that you need should pop up. Just put that in your laptop and you should be ready to surf the net. If this helped please rate Thanks Robert

Need to accessmy router wep code


Hi wdarrel11,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Cant get online through sky broadband


Wii Error Code 51331 means there is a problem with wireless security.
Make sure your router’s WEP/WPA (one or the other not both)key matches the WEP/WPA Key you entered in the Wii.
If you double checked the WEP/WPA key with the router and the Wii and they match, but you still receive the Wii Error Code 51331, then MAC filtering may be enabled in the router. You will have to add your Wii’s MAC address to the router’s allowed list. You can do this by logging into your router and going to the “access control, access list, or network filter” settings.
If you still have trouble with Wii Error Code 51331, try changing the wireless router’s channel to 1 or 11.

What is the Nintendo DS WEP code?


WEP code is nothing but the security key for the wireless network. You will need to check the settings of the router. Do you have any computer connected to the router or any computer going online using the router. You can open the set up page of the router and check the settigns of the router. You will find the WEP code on the router page.

Netgear Wireless - G USB 2.0 Adapter


Hello, Joe.

Assuming Sky doesn't prevent access to non-sky internet services (if they did something crazy like that, it is most likely a Sky specific firmware that was put on the router, which would mean you need to put the Netgear firmware back on), I would say you have something set up wrong.

Can you get to the internet through a wired connection? If so, wireless is probably configured wrong. If you can log into the router, that would give you an easy way to find out how thw wireless is set up. goto your web browser (on a wired connection to the router) and type "192.168.1.1" or "192.168.0.1" When prompted, type in your username and password (probably, "admin" and "sky" or "admin" and "admin").

If you can't log into the router then you'll have to try and figure out the connection through trial and error. When you were with Sky and the tech installed your router, did he/she give you an encryption key to use when you connected? If so, I would try "shared WEP" first (providing the WEP key given to you). If that doesn't work, try WPA-PSK.

Hope this helps,
Bill

I have Sky Broadband withe netgear router. Bought a netgear wireless adapter to use with my Advent PC. Installed everything. Good connection, but won't connect to internet. Keeps flicking from connected to...


HI,

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.0.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as sky (unless you have changed it).
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 routers' 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.

scan for the wireless network on the computer with the adapter and connect to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Hi i have a sky router n need my secondary DNS?


If you are using windows, open Command Prompt. Type "ipconfig /all" without the quotations. This will display your IP and DNS address.

If your router is connecting to the internet successfully, you don't need to change DNS settings. For the PS3 you just need to know the SSID of your router and the WEP or WPA password if your network is secured.

I lost the instillation CD and need the wep code


The WEP code is whatever you make it when you set up the wireless connection. If you have lost this key. It is best to use the manual reset located on your wireless router. Will require a small point like a paperclip. Then you will have to access the router and set up the wireless internet over again. Then you can secure it with a new WEP key.
If you need further assistance please ask me.
Thanks,

Sometimes Cable providers require you to add your X-Box MAC address to the account so they know where to send the IP.
