Log into your router. http 192.168.1.1 The username is admin and the password is password by default. You can make the desired changes from there.

1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it.
4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
5. Under Security Options, select WEP. A password will be auto-generated.
6. Click Apply to save the settings.

IMPORTANT: WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase. You will need these information in connecting your computers to the wireless router.

Cant find wep key


You will need to access the router (via its local web address using a suitable web browser) Once you have provided the login information, surf to the wireless security section and either document the WEP key (if not encrypted) or change it. Understand that changing the WEP key will invalidate any else's access, so be sure to share the change. The WEP key may have to be done in HEX, meaning that it must be done with the numerals 0-9 and ONLY the letters A-F. The ket must also be a specific length, usually 13 or 26 characters depending on the requirements of the router.

How do we find the WEP key for my WGR614v9


Configuring WEP:
  1. Use an ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
  4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar. n101675_image001.jpg
  5. Under Security Options, select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
  6. From Security Encryption (WEP) > Authentication Type, select Automatic.
  7. From Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, select 64-bit or 128-bit. NOTE: You will need to configure your wireless computers with the same setting.
  8. From Security Encryption (WEP) Key, select Key 1 and enter a key.
    • Note: WEP keys are entered in hexadecimal digits, which are any combination of 0-9, A-F.
      • If you selected 64-bit under Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, then enter 10 hexadecimal digits for your key.
      • If you selected 128-bit under Security Encryption (WEP) > Encryption Strength, then enter 26 hexadecimal digits for your key.
    • SAVE or KEEP NOTE of these values - they will be required to connect wirelessly to your network.
  9. Click Apply to save the settings.

My computers wireless security is WPA, but im trying to change it to WEP security. I have a netgear router, type WGR614v7.


WHY??
WEP is not very secure, it is very easy to bypass, you should be using WPA2.
You can log on to your router and change the security to WEP if you really want to.
Here is your manual ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/wgr614v7_ref_manual_20apr06.pdf

WEP code will be 10 digits only...you need to type all the 10 digits together (without any spaces)... Try disabling netgear utility and use your default windows utility...It is not the problem with netgear....

My pc has locked me out of the internet and i unfortunately didnt save the WEP key, the router is a NetgearWGT624 v3


The WEP encryption key is stored in the wireless setting in the Netgear wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Netgear router and open IE browser and enter the Netgear configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1) default login = admin default PW = password (type in the login password if you had changed it).
In the wireless encryption setting note down the encryption key. Use this key to configure the wireless card in the computer.

If you forgotten the PW then you can reset the router back to the factory configuration by using a sharp point and pressing the reset button at the back of the router until the LEDs flash, then release the Reset button.
Then login as previously stated. You can then create a new encryption key. I suggest you use WPA2 or WPA encryption key because it is much stronger than WEP.
I also suggest :-
Change the default password
Change the default SSID
For additional wireless security - enable MAC address filtering (this allows only listed MAC addresses of wireless cards to connect to this router - add the MAC address of your wireless card to the MAC address table in the wireless router).
Don't forget to configure the wireless card in the computer with the router's SSID and encryption key.

I can't remeber my WEP code ?


You can push the reset button on the back of the netgear router.
This will reset everything back to factory defaults. Should let you access the router through the IP address. Put in new password and allow you to change settings etc.

Keep in mind any Special settings you may have had. Will be gone!

Hope this helps!

Resetting WEP Password on Netgear WGT624


If you hold the reset pin in for more than ten seconds(I always count to 15) it will do a Factory reset...this will set all back to factory specs

Then you can set a new wep as well as an admin password

My laptop and the router won't stay connected.


This is common with many manf. of routers. I have had the same issue. Are you running WEP? If so that's probably the culprit. For some reason, IEEE allowed more than one hash routine to get out there in the field, so sometimes if you have varying brands end-to-end, they can generate the hash-to-value a slight bit differently. So either a)Disable WEP b)Get netgear PCMCIA on laptop c)Move closer or change string in your WEP key to ONLY include 0-9 a-z d)Get a repeater. (Either netgear or brand of laptop WLAN NIC) Hope this helps. (I ended up disabling WEP as MAC filter and SSID turned off are sufficient enough for home use security.)
