Regarding your response....

Hi. Thanks for responding. I did configure it as WEP. So, how do I get the default WEP key?? And....if I do end up having to reset the router, do I need to just start over from the beginning with the installation CD like I did the first time?? I appreciate your help so much!!

There is no default key it's either automatically being generated through a passphrase or you manually configure a 64bit(10 Hex) or 128bit(26hex) WEP key. the default key or transmit key is usually WEP key 1 by default on all routers.

The answer to your seconds question is Yes, you need to start all over if you reset your router to factory settings, some routers has a setupa wizard built in to its firmware that when you access the IP address of the router it will prompt you to run the wizard or configure the router manually..

Sorry for the late response.

Regards,

Do you have any hard wired computer which is going online..if yes try the following steps

  1. Open an Internet explorer and type the router IP address which would be either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 (by default, refer to your product documentation ti determine the default IP address.) in the address bar and press Enter.
    The Login window will be prompting for a Username and Password. The default Username is admin and the default Password is password
  2. Click Wireless Settings under Setup menu.you will find your key..
if not connect your laptop directly to the router with a cable and check if you are able to go online..and the try the steps, if not you have to start over from the begining

Im trying to get my wep key to connect to my p3 but the codes on tthe router doesnt work..how do i get my wep key??


To access the configuration utility, open a web-browser such as Internet Explorer and enter the IP address of the router (192.168.2.1).

Enter the password (admin), the default PWD.. Leave the username blank by default.

If you have change the password to the router type it in , if you do not remember it, you will need to reset the router.

Click on the Wireless tab, then security tab under it. There you will see your WEP key.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

What is a wep key?


In Shared Key authentication, the WEP key is used for authentication. A four-way challenge-response handshake is used:
  1. The client station sends an authentication request to the Access Point.
  2. The Access Point sends back a clear-text challenge.
  3. The client has to encrypt the challenge text using the configured WEP key, and send it back in another authentication request.
  4. The Access Point decrypts the material, and compares it with the clear-text it had sent. Depending on the success of this comparison, the Access Point sends back a positive or negative response.

Where do I find the WEP key code on my modem model number 2247NWG


the network administrator (whoever configure your router) should have the wep key you're looking for, if you're that person and forgot your wepkey you need to reset your router so you can go back into the router configuration page and reset a new key (and hopefully you'll remember it next time).
here some instructions for your product:

check on page 14 (FAQ) of router's manual
resetting router to default configuration (router's manual)

good luck!

After installing the router it was working fine. I went in to set up wireless security and now the internet light stays red.


Probably means that the security is turned on, if the wireless doesn't work even after you have entered the right password then press and hold the reset button on the back of the router to restore it to defaults - factory defaults just like it was first powered on.

I can not find the PIN number for the router. It


Hi there... I dont get wat you mean by PIN... Is it WEP key your refering too? Well as you said it is supposedly the 10 digits on the modem.. If your unable to connect, then the possibilities are that the modems default wep key has been changed. To reset this key you will have to access the gateway thru

192.168.1.254 or gateway.2wire.net - click on wireless settings and from there scroll down and you will be able to see the buttons where it is marked as use default encryption key or use custom key passphrase. Click on use default encrpytion key , scroll down and click save settings. Now note at this point of time when you click save , whichever wireless devices which were or could connect to the modem when it was in " use custom key passphrase" cant be connected anymore. All the devices must be reconfigured to the default wep key which can be found on your modem which is a 10 digit n numbers.

2nd choice.
You access the modems gateway page to reset the whole modem to factory default
Go to the http://gateway.2wire.net/mdc and you will be prompted for password. By default its 2wire. Once you have accesses in it, scroll down till you see Troubleshooting - then you can see resets. click on it and at the bottom you will see a radio button RESET - Resets your 2wire gateway to factory default. CLick on the reset, your modems power light will change to orange led after 3 secs from your click. and the orange led will be there for ard 10-15 secs. And your modem will boot back. And now its factory default. You need to do the necessary configurations depending on your ISP.

3rd choice

Reset button behind modem
Click the red reset button behind the modem and hold for 15 secs, the modem will be restored to factory default.


Pls note : I will not hold responsibility if any mishaps happens during this operation. All the above is done on YOUR SOLE RESPONSIBILITY. Thank you.

Need to find existing WEP ID, do not want to reset my WEP ID


Flip over your ACTIONTEC and you would see there the default wep key. If you've had it personalized before, you have to open the configuration page of your modem and check for the wep key.

To go to the configuration page, open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. that is the default address for your actiontec. type in your username and password when prompted. the usual default it ADMIN for username and PASSWORD (lowercase) for password. or you could also try ADMIN (uname)-ADMIN(pword).

click on the wireless settings icon and then click on basic security settings. scroll down on the middle of the page and you will see there your wep key.

if you are unable to open the configuration page because you forgot your username and password, you can reset your modem so that it the uname and password will go back to its factory default settings (admin/password). However, if you are using pppoe connection (authentication using username and password to connect to network) you can lose your connection and you would have to configure your router. so be careful not to press the reset button at the back.

WEP key


what is your router? do you know the gateway of your router?

1. Know what is your gateway by using a pc that is online hardwire to your router
> On that pc- check your gateway by doing ipconfig- your DG is your gateway
2. Then access the configuration page of your router- ex. 192.168.1.1
> Use your browser and type your gateway there.
> It will ask for username and password. You should know that.
3. When your inside your router's configuration page-look for wireless tab, then look for wireless security- you should be able to see there your wep key.
4. Finally type in that wep key on your toshiba laptop. It might ask you to confirm, so type it twice. =)

dorn1014:
This WEP key will be the same as you had put into your router. Go into your router like 'http://192.168.x.x' (check the manual of your router it will give you the default ip numbers of your router configuration page. On that configuration page you will find the WEP key. Basically you can also change it from within that page.
Or
If you have already changed the ip address of your router make sure you put instead of the one I mentioned.
Thanks Hope that helped.
