WEP Keys are the security codes to your Wireless network. You can get these in a number of ways. If there is another computer that is connected to that network, you can install Cain on it, and look through your Network Passcodes.

The routers setup page should have the WEP key in the wireless settings tab of the page. You can access the page at http://192.168.1.1 Hope this helps.

Microsoft office product key lost after reimage of laptop


You are mostly out of luck if both venders will not help. This is usually the case with lost product keys, but it is up to Toshiba to help. They provided the OEM software.

I own a advent 4213 and i try to connect to the network and it just gives up it has the correct wep key but i dont know what to do


Hi

Firstly make sure that the wireless switch is turned

and if it is not connecting properly you could right click the wireless icon in the task bar
go to the properties of it then delete it

then in a few seconds windows will show you a notice saying that wireless connections are available

so back to the connection click connect then reenter the code/key and hopefully that will do the trick

good luck

How to i password lock my router for my wi-fi


There is an option called WEP (Wired Encryption Privacy)
You have to loginto the wireless router and enable the WEP authentication.
It will ask you to type in a key and again reenter the same key.
Please do remember the WEP key as next time you try to connect to wireless your laptop will ask for the WEP key. enter in the same key and you will be able to go to internet.

Those who wants to use your wireless need to enter the same key. If you dont want someone to access your wireless then you dont provide him the key.

i would suggest that you need to contact your router manufacturer regarding this because you are trying to setup the printer wirelessly.once you change your modem your router should communicate w/ it and it needs to be configure by your router as well for a good communication

I just got a laptop, and i am trying to connect it to tthe router, it's says i need a wep/wap key. where can i find that key?


The wep key has to be created on the router so if you didn't set it up then you need to ask the person who did what it is. Assuming that it is your router and you lost or forgot the key then you can get into the router with a computer that is hardwired to the router. So you plug your laptop into the router and open up internet explorer. In the address bar you need to put in the router's address (Ex: linksys is 192.168.1.1) this will pull up the router menu default login is admin and password admin or root. (if these have been changed then you can push in the reset button on the back but this will wipe out everything and you'll have to set it up again,not preferable.) If you have another router then you can get online on another computer and look these default codes up for your router. If these work then you are in the menu and you can go to security section and create a new wep (or take it off completely again not preferable) make sure to save the changes you have made before getting out of the menu and write down the wep you created or save it in a word doc. Now you can unhook your laptop and try to connect wirelessly when it asks for a wep put in the key you created,reenter it and hit connect and you should be good to go.

Unable to setup wireless network


I know exactly what has happened
u did not knew the password for router manager
u reset it
After reset router , it came back to its factory defaults, now the password will come back to its factory defaults ( if u still dont know the factory defaults password, check manual provided to u with this router )
After reseting , as router came back to factory defaults , it also changed the wireless encryption key or WPA password with which u were able to connect earlier to its factory defaults original key and due to that reason u are getting limited or no connectivity coz the WEP or WPA key has changed.
Solution: IF U know the original wireless key or WPA key try to reenter it and see whether it connects or not
if still does not work

Then connect ur PC or laptop with ethernet or LAN CABLE (CAT)
Your internet will start working with the cable
NOW u will be able to open the router manager page
Type the factory defaults password and log in
Then goto the wireless settings page and check what is the WEP key stored in ur router and also try to channels of the router and see wherher it increases the signal strength or not
Once you have got the key from the router manager page
Try to reenter it and then surely it will work.........
Best of luck
