Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but this is what I did when I set up my Belkin (well, before I wanted more security and went WPA)...

1. Log into your Router or Access Point.

Open your web browser and type in IP address of the Router or Access Point. (The Router default is 192.168.2.1, the 802.11g Access Point is 192.168.2.254 ). Log into your router by clicking on the "Login" button in the top right-hand corner of the screen. You will be asked to enter your password. If you never set a password, leave the password field blank and click "Submit".

Click the "Wireless" tab on the left of your screen. Select the "Encryption" or "Security" tab to get to the security settings page.

2. Select "128-bit WEP" from the drop-down menu.

3. After selecting your WEP encryption mode, you can type in your hex WEP key manually, or you can type in a passphrase in the "Passphrase" field and click "Generate" to create a WEP key from the passphrase. Click "Apply Changes" to finish. You must now set all of your clients to match these settings. A hex (hexadecimal) key is a mixture of numbers and letters from A-F and 0-9. For 128-bit WEP, you need to enter 26 hex keys.

For example:

C3030FAF4BB2C3D44BC3D4E7E4 = 128-bit key

4. Click "Apply Changes" to finish. Encryption in the Router is now set. Each of your computers on your wireless network will now need to be configured with the same security settings.

Hi i have changed my wep key and reset router ok no i tried to get back on my computers wifi it brings up the avail wifi but wen i got to my wifi it keep coming back that i cant conect


Did you change the WEP key on your computers? If not, they remember the old WEP key, and when they try to connect, the router won't let them because they don't have the new WEP key.

The exact instructions will vary depending on the operating system.
In windows 7 or earlier, you should be able to click on wireless icon in your system tray (near the bottom right-hand corner). Find your network in the list, the right-click and choose "Properties" and make your security changes.

Windows 8 or later? Try this:

How to set up WEP on Linksys Router

Setting-Up 152-Bit WEP Wireless Security on a Linksys Dual-Band A+G Wireless Router
Question
How do I set up 152-Bit WEP on a Linksys Dual-Band A+G Wireless Router?
Answer
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) can be a 64-bit key with 10 hexadecimal digits, a 128-bit WEP key with 26 hexadecimal digits or a 152-bit WEP key with 32 hexadecimal digits. This encryption will prevent other users from connecting to a wireless network using your own WEP key. It will also protect your wireless transmissions/communications from being accessed or received by other users.
NOTE: Make sure to change the wireless settings of either Wireless-A or Wireless-G depending on the standard your network is using.
152-bit WEP key only applies to 5GHz 802.11a Wireless enabled network.
To setup WEP Wireless Security on your Linksys router follow the steps below.
Setting-Up the Linksys Router to use WEP
Step 1:
Access the router’s web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
Step 2:
When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click Wireless then click WirelessSecurity.
Step 3:
Look for SecurityMode and select WEP.
For Wireless-A Settings:
4439-001.pngFor Wireless-G Settings:
4439-003.pngNOTE: If the screen on your router’s web-based setup page looks different, click here.
Step 4:
Look for the Encryption drop down menu and select 152 bits.
Step 5:
Look for Passphrase and type a wireless network password of your choice, then click Generate. In this example “MySecretKey” was used.
NOTE: You should come up with a password that is unique for your network and is a combination of numbers and letters up to 16 characters.
Step 6:
When you click Generate, the result will be a string of random characters.
Step 7:
Look for TXKey and select any number to determine which key you’ll be using. In this example, we selected 1.

4439-005.pngStep 8:
Copy Key1 since 1 was selected under TX Key.
NOTE: Do not give this key to anyone. This will be your wireless network’s key.

What is the wep password


The encryption key secures your data from unauthorized access.
The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

The WEP key is the security access key on your wireless router. If you do not know what it is you will have to log into the router and look it up. Below is links to access the WEP on a Belkin and SMC router. IF you do not have those or not those models let me know and I will make a walk through for you. Just let me know the make and model of your router.

How do i secure my belikn from outsiders using it


Enable wireless security on your router, so that other people will not be able to connect to your network.

To enable wireless security, access the setup page of the router through a web browser. Type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar.

By default, leave the password blank.

Once in the setup page, go to Wireless. Take note of your SSID. Then go to Security.

Select WEP or WPA, depending on the operating system and capabilities of your wireless computer. If in doubt, you may use WEP since it is the legacy wireless standard.

You can enter your WEP key manually by typing in the hex WEP key manually, or you can type a passphrase in the “PassPhrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP key from the passphrase.

Make sure to take note of the WEP key because you will be needing this for your wireless computer.

Click Apply Changes.

On your wireless computer, view the available wireless networks, select your SSID, then type the WEP key.

I hope this helps!

What is a wep key, and where will i find it, for setting up xbox 360 thanks


WEP stands for Wireless Encryption Protocol and it is the wireless key for your router.
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
You will need to find the WEP key in your router's administration page and then enter it on your xbox under the system settings then network settings.

Wireless is not secure


Step 1 Log into the Router

A device which forwards packets between networks. The forwarding decision is based on network layer information and routing tables, often constructed by routing protocols.'); return false">Router
by entering it’s IP address into a browser. The default IP address is http://192.168.1.1. At the login, enter your username (admin) and password (admin).
Step 2 Click on “Wireless” on the left hand side then click on “WEP” at the top of the page.
tew-432brp_f_1.jpg Step 3 Enter in the desired encryption values then click “Apply”.
Examples:
Authentication type:WEP WEP
Type: Open
System Mode: Hex WEP
Key: 64-bit Key 1: 0000000000
Note: For WEP you can choose ASCII or HEX modes.
64bit ASCII = 5 digit ASCII key.
64bit HEX = 10 digit HEX key. (Can only use letters A~F and numbers)
128bit ASCII = 13 digit ASCII key.
128bit HEX = 26 digit HEX key. (Can only use letters A~F and numbers)
You can also choose WPA

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is becoming the wireless security standard. It is a higher level of security than WEP that combines encryption and authentication to create an unbreakable level of protection. For small office and home users the WPA preshared key (WPA-PSK) is the easiest set up and does not involve a Certificate Authority Server, which is recommended for small and large business customers. Once the preshared key is set-up on each network device, every packet sent over the wireless network will receive its own encryption key under the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP). A key benefit to WPA is that it is backward compatible with WEP-only devices. For those users looking to ensure those who share keys are who they claim to be a Certificate Authority Server or RADIUS Server can be added. This requires a more complicated set-up and is not recommended for smaller networks. Also, one thing to note is that WPA adds to the packet size, typical transmissions will take longer.'); return false">WPA
