How do i get my wep key


you should use wpa2, its much stronger than wep, and you choose your own password.
Wep gives you a key.
Log into your router. If you dont know how to do this google your router and it will tell you how to do it.
My router is accessed by typing 192.168.0.1 into my browser.
you then need to know the log in name and password, sometimes printed onto the router, my default was admin and no password, sometimes administrator and password is password .
look for wifi security and your setting are there. this site has most router models instructions http://www.routerpasswords.com/

in order to connect you have to know the router key. If dont you wont be able to. anyway you can get it by editing router configuration (Usually box router included software). Here you can assign a new password.

Security please help ,,how do i set up my internet security for wireless internet so i have a secure seting that non familly members are locked out


You have to log into your router to do this. Your manual will explain how to do this. You did not say what brand of router this is. The name will be on the router along with the model number.
You can reset the router to factory settings if you insert a pin into the tiny hole in the back. Then you will need to look in the manual to tell you how to set it up.
Wireless settings will need to be passworded as per the manual. Go to the web site and find the drivers and the manual. This can not be done by one of us here. We can help after you have done everything that I told you to do but it will work if you follow my directions.

You will have to make a wireless password and it will have to be put on all of the other computers.

Hi i have the linksys model wub54g router an adapter i would like to put a password on t stop other uses on my internet


U don't need a password. U need to set U'r router to a secure mode, not open ended. use WEP or other (64 bit or 128 bit) encryption. linksys allows U to select a paraphrase, example: "Love2Air" and it will generate a code, i.e. "7D23C678867". This will allow others to see that there is a wireless system, but they have to have the code to use it. U will have to have the code in your other wireless pc's in order to use the system. U can also tell the router what MAC address' (pc address') to allow or disallow to use the system.
A password is used to keep others out of U'r routers setup and changing U'r code or paraphrase. If U'r system gets highjacked, there is a reset on the router and everything will revert to the book defaults. Don't loose the book.

Other people seem to be able to access our wireless connection. how do we secure it as we cant find passwords in the instructions or on the disc. Please help thanku.


You need to log into your routers programming and set a WEP key... Or rename the SSID to something like your last name and tell it NOT to broadcast. Whenever your done write all the information down in a safe place. Then you'll need to re-run the wireless network setup wizard on PC's and tell it what the new SSID is and if you used a WEP key you'll need to tell it that too.

Whats the exact brand/model # for your router?

Wireless router setup


is the problem that "nothing coming from the modem to the router"
if the router has more than one Lan port try the cable from the modem to the router, in the first lan port or the last port.

if its a wireless problem,ensure wireless is enabled on the laptop and the router,if you set up a security key ensure that it is put into the laptop wireless setting

sometimes you need to turn on the modem first then turn the router on after a little while to sort the ip address out before trying to connect the laptop, in the first instance.

hope this is of some help but more info would be good

good luck
Terry
