You can get your WEP Key or WEP Encyption Key on your Wireless Router's Configuration Page.
Open your Web Browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox or Safari, type the IP Address of your Router on the Address Bar (e.g. 192.168.0.1) log in to your router and check the wireless settings and look for your network key.
If you dont know the IP Address of your router, try checking it on the command prompt.
Click Start, then click on run, on the run windows type in cmd for command, a black screen will pop up, in the blinking cursor type in ipconfig for Internet Protocol Configure it will show you the IP Address of your computer and the router's IP Address which is the Default Gateway

Some wireless adaptors may encounter the compatibility problem
with some routers when adaptor's driver is out dated. I have a Toshiba laptop
that had the same problem. After I installed the latest driver, the problem resolved. You may need to contact manufacturer of
the computer to get the updated driver. If you cannot get a driver updated, you can
also try to lower the security to WEP.
WEP Wired equivalent privacy is supposed to give the same security as a wired network in a wireless network. 64 means a 64 bit key is required to get the thing working. Look on the bottom of your wireless adaptor for the key it will be in the format xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx. type it in carefully when requested.
Make sure first that you know the wireless settings on your router. Take note of the SSID (wireless network name), wireless channel, wireless security settings (WEP/WPA, preshared key/passphrase/wep key/wireless network key).
For Win XP/Win Vista: On the system tray (lower right corner of the screen; near the clock), right click on the double-monitor icon that says Wireless network connection. Then select View available wireless networks.
You should detect the SSID or wireless network name. Highlight it, then if it asks for a network key, you need to type the wireless network key. Then click connect.
Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it.
What you to do first verify that the device is installed properly for that ---
Go to Device manager-- click on Network adaptors -verify the your wireless adaptor is listed there without any yellow or red mark .If you see a yellow mark then you need to install and reinstall the adaptor
Second , You might see an icon for netgear adpaptor in right lower corner under taskbar and you need to Right Click on it , it will show you several options just look for use window to manage wifi or xp wifi client , like that .. sect that option ..
after that it will display a message wireless network detected , click on the messege , you will see your network . select and connect
This is because those wireless adapters that you mentioned do not support for WPA2. Linksys will not release drivers for those adapters that will make it work with WPA2 because they are already discontinued. So the only other option is to stick with WPA or WEP
Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.
I'm working on another thread with the same product. Make sure you unistall all zoom software from your computer. Restart your computer. Plug the wireless adaptor in and let it find the drivers you need. It may need the CD that came with the adaptor but don't install any thing from the CD but the drivers.
Use the WEP id and password system from Windows networking.
