Hi there,

Which is router?

Flip the router over,you would the routers default gateway (most of the time it would be 192.168.1.1) type the same in the address bar and press enter you will enter the router page and it would ask you for user name and password which you would again find underneath the router(admin and admin most of the time) enter them and press OK. Once you enter the router configuration page search for wireless and click on it you would see the wep key below SSID. Make a note of it in a piece of paper.

Hope this helps.
Cheers!

Grace Digital Mondo Wifi radio - plugged in, found my wifi connection, but when I enter my WEP Key, it just cirlces back to :Enter WEP Key. No errors received, just doesn't recognize my WEP K


Hi
You say that the radio keeps demanding the WEP key for your WiFi connection. WEP is just one of several security types to be used for WiFi. The fact that the radio is asking for a WEP key indicates to me that your WiFi is more than likely set to one of the other security standards such as WPA, WPA2-PSK etc etc etc. If this is the case your laptop and kindle etc will be using the same security standard as your WiFi router. To find out which security standard is being used in Windows 7, on your laptop, click on the active connection in the system tray to bring up the list of available connections and then click on "Open Network and Sharing Centre". When the Network Centre page comes up double click on the "Wireless Connection".
A status box will come up and about half way down is a utton "Wireless Properties". Click on this, and in the box that comes up click on the security tab and it will tell you the security type, the encryption type and the wireless key (click on "Show characters").
If the encryption type is not WEP then the radio will not connect to your WiFi, and the radio settings for Security and encryption need to be set to the same as on the laptop for it to connect.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

LOST WIFI SECURITY KEY WORD
If you have lost your WEP/WAP wifi key phrase there is no way to recover it except go into the router administration settings and see if it is in plain text there. If not then you will have to make up a new key phase and apply it to ALL your connected devices.
In future, write the key phrase down on a piece of tape and apply it to the bottom of your router. You can use a hint instead of the actual phrase.

I have router d link dir-524 i have change wep key then my internet have not connected what i do??


You should delete the old wifi history that was saved. From your device go to settings then wireless then delete or forget the wifi name... then search for wifi again and it will ask you now to enter the new WEP key. That should do it

I set a WEP key for the USB, now it's not allowing me to connect, Is their anyways to reset the WEP key of the dongle ? Please Help me.


If it's a standard WIFI dongle it would have come with an installation disk or on-board self installing drivers and (usually) a WIFI app which I presume you used to set the WEP key. If it's a modern one you will be using a MINIMUM of WPA2 and TKIP or AES encryption. Try running the setup app again with one of these settings. The app SHOULD give you the choice of setting up encryption & passwords using windows instead (windows zero config usually) by right clicking on wifi symbol in bottom R of screen. I find that more reliable. Check the maker's spec for the relevent protocols. Good Luck.

How do I find a WEP key for the PS3


The WEP access key is created by the owner/installer of the WiFi account.

So, you would need approval from the hotel's owner/manager to access their WiFi - they can provide you with the key.

I forgot my password and now I cannot connect with


if you need to recover a used wifi key, its not possible from within windows as they are all encrypted when added, you need to search for a wifi key recovery software, there are some that recover and back up keys used on the machine, so i would start there :)

Find my wep key


Oh, sorry I didn't see it in the title before. First, check the dirvers are properly installed for the adapter. Then if you don't have the wep key, connect by cable or other computer connected to your router (better by cable, as you can have restricted access to router setup menu from wi-fi). The WEP will be in WIFI config. section. If you cant log in to your router, try export the config profile out from another wifi connected PC and import it into new device wifi config software (if they support the same profiles). If nothing of this helped, you can still reset the router (find in manual- most often disconnect from power and push reset button for about 10 seconds) and setup WIFI with new WEP key. Don't forget to write the wep down. If WEP is not your problem but connectivity of the adapter to internet or network at all, describe the problem more deeply
