We are trying to sign on to our home network but the WEP key, after entering, keeps saying settings are invalid. What exactly is the WEP key? What do we need to do?


Are you trying to connect to your internet connection for wireless? If it is, the WEP key is the password that you set up for your wireless device so that devices that can see the your wireless network will be able to connect by entering the right WEP key. If you didnt change the WEP key of your modem or router, then the default WEP key will be found at the back of your device, but if you had changed it before then, that's the WEP key that you need to enter.

I was trying to manually the router up as wireless.


Hi,

If you want to connect to the router wirelessly you need to know the SSID or the Name of the Router (Nework Name) and the Network Key or Wep Key. The Default Wep Key is the 10 digit key located on the bottom sticker of the router. It is near the Bar Code. You can also personalize the Network Key by simly accessing the router. I've listed the steps on how to access the router incase the Network Key on the sticker is not working.



  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
  • Connect to your SSID by clicking on START then click on Connect To, Select your SSID then it will ask you for your Network Key. Type the Network Key then hit Connect
Rate me if this helps so i can help others

Thanks for using Fixya.

I am trying to get my nintendo wifi connection on my game to work and i have half of it done but i need a WEP key and i dont know my WEP key i dont know what it is.


wep key is another word for password. when you set up your home network who ever set it up set it up with a password to make it more secure. which is a good thing security wise but bad when trying to gt your gaming device to connect.... this site should walk you step by step in setting up your wii and also getting a wep key. just start with first time setup link

What is the WEP key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
WEP is an older network security method that's still available to support older devices, but it's no longer recommended. When you enable WEP, you set up a network security key. This key encrypts the information that one computer sends to another computer across your network. However, WEP security is relatively easy to crack. f4008eb.jpg

What is a ssid and a wep key. I am dumb.


Hi,
SSID is the wireless networks name you want to access.

WEP is a special hexadecimal key to secure your network means if you want to connect a wireless network you will have to put this key.
It will be provided by the admin

Can't connect to my router anymore (WEP encrypted).


Hi deray953,

First we need to remove the previous profile in your wireless network. I believe you know the SSID for wireless connection using WEP security. You can check this by going to;

Using Windows XP SP2/3
1. "Control Panel" > Switch control panel to classic view ( look at the upper left side ). > Double click "Network Connections" > Right click "Wireless Network Connections" > choose "Properties"> Click the Tab "Wireless Networks" ( middle tab) > go to the list of profiles and remove the Wireless name or SSID for your home connections. > click OK and Close the properties of wireless.

To reconnect again, you need to know your WEP key or network key for wireless connections if not, you can do this procedure...

1.Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".
d. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
e. take note of the KEY 1 ...that is your WEP key..take note of it.

Connecting Through Wireless Zero Configuration (Windows XP SP1 and SP2)

For Windows XP Service Pack 1:

2. Click on the Advanced tab.
3. Please delete all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon again and click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Please select your network and click on Connect. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Please type in the Network Key and then confirm it.
6. Make sure not to enable IEEE and then click on Connect.

For Windows XP Service Pack 2:

1. Please right click on the Wireless icon on the right lower end portion of your computer. Then, click on View Available Wireless Networks.
2. Click on the Change Advanced Settings.
3. Click on the Wireless Networks tab remove all the preferred networks then click on OK.
4. Right click on the Wireless icon then click on View Available Wireless Networks.
5. Select your network and click on Connect.
6. If you have Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) enabled on the router, it will ask you for the network key. Type in the network key and confirm it. Then click on Connect.

Note: You may use the wireless utility of your wireless adapter in connecting to the wireless network but you need to clear "Use Windows to configure my wireless networks" on the Wireless Networks tab.

Connecting to a Wireless Network on Windows Vista:

a. Click Start then select Connect To.
b. Connect to a network window will show up.

Need wep to connect laptop from school to home network while at home


YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THE WEP KEY IN YOUR INTERNET CONNECTIONS. IF THERE IS NO WEP KEY, JUST CREATE ONE AND YOU SHOULD BE GOOD TO GO. THIS CONNECTION LINK HAS A TAB TO SHOW CHARACTERS IF THE KEY HAS BEEN ENTERED. YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO REMEMBER IT, OR JUST CREATE A NEW CONNECTION WITH A NEW WEP KEY! THAT IS THE EASY WAY! GOOD LUCK.
