I was having the same problem with my computer in reference to finding the wep key through the router. My setting were changed on my computer at work and then the computer would no longer work on my home network. I had to find the wep key.
1.) using the internet explorer (not AOl or MSN or..)but the internet explorer that your computer came with.
2.) enter "192.168.1.1" in the website address field. do NOT use www in front.
3.) this will bring you to a linksys website.
4.) click on wireless
5.) then wireless security
6.) then you will see the page with the wep key listed.
7.) use the first wep key listed.

thought this might help you

WiFi Security Best Practices

Use WPA/WPA2 encryption. Avoid using Open or WEP-encrypted WiFi. Use WiFi Protected Access (WPA) or WPA2 with 802.1x authentication if possible. If you use a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) authentication, use a strong passphrase (aka WPA shared key) that is at least eight characters long and is a combination of alphanumeric and special characters.

Where do I find my WEP Key?


The WEP encryption key is configured in the router's wireless settings.
WEP key is not as strong as the later WPA or even better WPA2 encryption keys.

I want to use my wifi router D-link dir-600 for internet wifi. After I set everything according to manual guide, I can detect the wifi signal, eventhough I have enable the wifi in the router.


Theencryption 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. For Internet access you need to connect your DSL or cable modem to the WAN/Internet port on the D-Link.

The access point's security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS


WEP and WPA are types of security that are used to protect home wireless networks. WEP is the only security setting that works with the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite. WPA and WEP are both compatible with the Nintendo DSi. If you are not sure how to find your router's WEP or WPA Key or if you have problems entering it into your Nintendo DS, try the following tips:
so if your wifi is WPA. you wont be able to use wireless
but if your wifi is WEP you can.
WEP is not recommended because it is not secure. Easy to hack

Every time i secure the router the wpa/wep isnt compatible with my daughters laptop.....not too sure what do


Does your daughter have a very old laptop? Some older wireless cards do not support wpa/wep. You can still get her a USB wireless adapter and use that to connect to the router.

My archos 605 gen 5 cannot connect to internect


Try:- Menu Settings Language and Region WiFi Region.....set to "EUROPE" Followed by: Menu WiFi Status WIFi ...important that pasword format corresponds to that of your WiFI system eg WEP or WPA. The type of format will dictate the length of code. Generally WPA can accept a longer code than WEP format although a short code can be used for either. If your Archos is set to WEP and your WiFi network set to WPA (or vice versa) the format conflict will not allow the correct password to recognised It should be possible to use the

New epson Printer with WIFI asking for the PIN


You mean the wireless network key?

To get your wireless network key, do the following steps:

1. Open Internet Explorer, on the address bar type 192.168.1.1
2. There's no username and type admin on the password. If admin didn't work, use your own password.
3. When you have the Setup Page open, click on Wireless Tab, then click on the sub-tab Wireless Security.
4. There you can see the Security Mode. If the mode is set to WEP, the WEP Key 1 is your wireless key. If the mode is set to the WPA-Personal, the Passphrase or the WPA Shared Key is your wireless key/PIN.

HI THERE I WAS TRYING TO CONNECT MY WII TO THE INTERNET THOUGH WIRE LESS BUT IT TELLS ME I NEED A KEY WHAT KEY IS THIS AND HOW DO I GET IT


Hi ELAINETONKIN,

The key is a setting from the WiFi connection your trying to use. If it is a WEP WiFi connections you need the WEP Key, which is a long string of numbers and letters. If you are using a WPA WiFi then the key will be your WPA password/passpharse. This can be found on the routers settings, or instruction manual for the router. If you have a PC or laptop that uses this connection then you would have already needed to enter the Key on there to allow you to connect.

Archos 704 WPA/WEP


The WEP or WPA is the password to get onto the network. Think of the router as the doorman. The printer needs to get into the club so it needs the password otherwise it can't get access.

The WEP key and WPA passphrase are obtained from the wireless router or access point using the embedded web server on the router. See the documentation provided with your router to see how to access this information. Some routers provide more than one WEP key. Use the first WEP key if this is the case.
