In onder to obtain this information you need a computer that has internet connection through the router, if you have a main computer that is wired through the router then use that computer if not try to hardwire the laptop to the router(plug it to any of the number ports that say ethernet/lan). Access the setup page of the router by typing 192.168.2.1(deafult IP address of the router) on the address bar of your browser(i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari), type admin for the username and leave the password blank. Go to the Wireless Settings/Configuration tab of the router and verify the security mode(WEP or WPA)

I am trying to connect my archos device to my belking 54g wireless router for internet access. the archos is asking for a windows wep key and hexidecimal wep key. where can i find these?


The windows wep key is something that is normally set up when you configure your router. It is something you yourself add when you want to encrypt your network. Here is a good guide for doing that:

Note that there are different levels of encryption you can use. Wep is only one of them.

Web key wireless internet service


I think you meant WEP key. this is a wireless encryption security key. and it is normally required when you try to connect to a secured network. Your administrator should be able to provide you with this. because it varies. i.e you can set it to whatever you want if you have access to the wireless router. in your case Belkin 54g Wireless DSL/Cable Router
so please if you have access to it, log in to the router and check from wireless security settings.

How do I put security on my Belkin 54g router


You set your security by enabling WEP.

When you get in the interface to configure WEP, set a pass phrase. Write down the 3 numeric keys it generates. Then connect to the wireless using your laptop, etc. When it asks for your passkey, do not enter the pass-phrase; enter one of the three keys that were generated by the router. That's the biggest mistake people make when trying to get wireless to work.

Belkin 54g Wireless connection problem.


This is more of an explanation then a solution, but to best explain what to do I have to first explain why this is happening. When you add security to a wireless router or ap you add extra envelopes to the packets of info being transferred, adding encryption to that makes it much slower because the ap has to encode all packets coming to you and un-encode all packets being sent to the Internet. In our time this happens very quickly, but in computer time I just described a lifetime. In addition if your signal is not 100% you might have packet loss "more slow down". Now the answer, in your ap setup pages you can setup wireless security, set this to Mac address authenication and add the mac addresses of all the network cards that have access to this ap. This is by far the fastest methiod of secure data transfer.

Hope this was some help...

Belkin 54 encryption


1. Log into your Wireless Router or Access Point.
Open your web browser and type in the IP address of the Wireless
Router or Access Point. (The Router’s default is 192.168.2.1, the
Access Point’s default is 192.168.2.254.) Log into your Router by
clicking on the “Login” button in the top, right-hand corner of the
screen. You will be asked to enter your password. If you never set
a password, leave the password field blank and click “Submit”.
Click the “Wireless” tab on the left of your screen. Select
the “Encryption” or “Security” tab to get to the security
settings page.
2. Select “128-bit WEP” from the drop-down menu.
3. After selecting your WEP encryption mode, you can type in
your hex WEP key manually, or you can type in a passphrase
in the “Passphrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP
key from the passphrase. Click “Apply Changes” to finish. You
must now set all of your clients to match these settings. A hex
(hexadecimal) key is a combination of numbers and letters from
A—F and 0—9. For 128-bit WEP, you need to enter 26 hex keys.
For example:
C3 03 0F AF 4B B2 C3 D4 4B C3 D4 E7 E4 = 128-bit key
4. Click “Apply Changes” to finish. Encryption in the Wireless
Router is now set. Each of your computers on your wireless
network will now need to be configured with the same
security settings.

Network security


Once you've logged into the router (open your browser, and type ONLY this into the Address line, without the quotes: "192.168.2.1). You should get a log in pop-up, "admin" is the username, and the password is left blank (or is sometimes "password"), again without the quotes.

Once logged in, you have a series of menus on the left hand side, Usually large blue lines demark each section, i.e. "Lan Setup", "Internet WAN", and of course the section you are looking for "Wireless". Under each header is listed each of the pages available for that function. For example, under Wireless you'd want the first 2 items: "Channel and SSID" - this is where you set the name of the wireless network; and "Security", which is where you setup whichever one of the Encryption options you want. This Encryption key is the password you will use when connecting wirelessly to the router from a PC.

Hopefully that is enough to get you setup.
