Finding your WEP key


Samantha, ...

the only security methods supported on your N300 Router are WPA-PSK, and WPA2-PSK. The WEP security (you mention) is not supported by WPS. Go back into your settings and choose WPA or WPA2.

I tried to change from WEP to WPA but the password will not go through. It makes it an unsecure line for wireless. What am I doing wrong?


The Short Answer:
Your password might not meet criteria. It also depends on whether you use a custom encryption key. If so, then you either need to create a 10-digit or 26-digit hexadecimal number (numbers 0-9 & letters a-f) depending on whether you use 64 or 128-bit encryption.

The Long Answer:
A WPA password must be between 8-63 characters long, and must only contain ASCII printable characters.
The 2Wire User Guide for the 2700 states the following:
"You can customize the following wireless settings in the Wireless Security panel.
1. From the Authentication pull-down menu, select an authentication setting: WEP-Open, WEP-Shared, or WPA-PSK.
Note: WPA-PSK authentication is supported only on HG model gateways.
Open authentication allows users to configure their wireless adapter as either Open or Shared; in either case an encryption key is required. Shared authentication allows users to configure their wireless adapter for Shared authentication, which requires an encryption key. WPA-PSK requires that users configure their wireless adapter using TKIP.
2. To use the encryption key that came with your gateway, click the Use default encryption key radio button.
To create a custom encryption key, click the Use custom encryption key radio button. If you select Use custom encryption key, you can define a 64-bit or 128-bit encryption key. For 64-bit encryption, enter a 10-digit hexadecimal number. For 128-bit encryption, enter a 26-digit hexadecimal number. A hexadecimal number uses the characters 0-9, a-f, or A-F.
3. Click SAVE"

Hello, I'm trying to connect my wii wireless and it keeps giving me an error code 51330 "unable to connect to the Internet" could you tell me what it means? Thank you.


Error Code: 51330
This error code usually indicates a problem relating to wireless security. Please try the following troubleshooting:
Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router?
  • Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance)
  • Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key.
  • If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
  • If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F.
  • The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters).
  • If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot.
  • If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types:
  1. WPA - PSK (TKIP)
  2. WPA - PSK (AES)
  3. WPA2 - PSK (AES)
But if the above information doesn't help correct this problem, then give a call to Nintendo's 1-800-255-3700 (6 am ~ 7 pm Pacific, everyday)

Followed instructions from Best Solution posted on Nov 19, 2009 by bhuvan25. When got to: Encryption:-WEP for wep security TKIP/AES for WPA-PSK. Network key/Confirm network key:-is the wep key or wpa-psk...


If you select WPA security mode then you can not add the network manually.
I think the OS on your computer is windows XP.
You can connect to the netwoek using the windws utility.
If you select WEP, then you can add the network manually.

I need my network key to add a new computer. I went to the belkin 192.168.2.1 page but which code is my network key please?


Hello...if you have logged into your router, you can find your network key by going to Wireless > Security on the menu.
If using WPA encryption, your network key is on this page: it will be labelled Pre-Shared Key or PSK according to the manual I have. Hope this helps.

(For info: the network key may also be known as the passphrase, WPA shared key, WEP key, WPA-PSK, authentication key, or security key).
