Use 64bit WEP key.

Set key as 10 hex digits on router and PC

e.g. 1A B2 C3 D4 E5

don't generate a key from a password - use hex digits in both

Where is my wep key located


a WEP key is a group of numbers assigned automatically or manually to the wireless router for security so anyone who does not know the key can't access your wireless network.

Hi,
The wireless network may be encrpyted with a wep password. So you will need to check this in the network when you see the detected network click connect. you will be promted for a wep password.

Second thing you will need to check if you must specify and ip address. a subnet and a gateway address or leave it dynamic that is it will find an Ip address and everything automatically by itself.

I dont know what my wep is for my wireless router


it may be on a label on the bottom of the router!
if not, try connecting via the network cable and put the ip (usually on bottom of router eg 192.168.1.1) address of your router in the address bar of your browser (internet explorer/firefox/safari,etc) and checking in the wireless settings for the wep key--you may need password to access router,but you can google exact details if you get an ethernet connection first

Cant conect to internet


  • Wii Error Code 51300 - 51399
  • This error is caused by the Wii being unable to connect to the access point.

    To solve this error : 

    Try changing the channel of your wireless router to either channel 1 or channel 11 which can increase download speeds.

    If your router is using WEP encryption
  • Ensure your key is hexadecimal, consisting of 0-9 or A-F only, no other special characters or letters.
  • 64 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 10 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.
  • 128 bit encryption requires your WEP key to be 26 characters consisting of numbers or leters A through F.

    If your router is using WPA encryption, the Wii is compatible with : 
    WPA - PSK(TKIP)
    WPA - PSK(AES)
    WPA2 - PSK(AES)

    If your router is using MAC filtering, ensure the Wii MAC address has been added to the list of approved MAC address on your wireless router settings

I have a new computer laptop and need to connect to my router WRT54GS Ser # CGN10D815901 and can't get on the internet. I think I just need my scurity key. I am WEP security code, correct? I had the piece...


  1. Access the router's setup page using a computer that is wired or physically connected to the router.
  2. To access router's setup page, launch IE and on the address field type 192.168.1.1 (which is the default IP address of Linksys routers). Then, it will ask for a username and password. By default, there is no username. The password is admin.
  3. Once you're in the Linksys setup, go to WIRELESS tab. There is a subtab called Wireless Security.
  4. Click on wireless security tab and you will find there the security key or wep key that is enabled in your router.
Hope this helps!

I am visiting my aunt, she has att broad band with wireless, I put the wep key in and it gives me limited or no connectivity. It gave me a 168 address so I manually put in a 192 address, got rid of limited...


First take off WEP.
Next, ensure DHCP is enabled on router.
Don't set a manual IP address in computer, it should auto detect.
You probably have the WEP key wrong

Use the HEX WEP key in windows, do not use a pass phrase.

How to secure my network with the router


If your using a wireless router set a password key for your router's WPA(Wi-fi Protected Acces) or WEP(wired equivalent privacy). The WPA/WEP key is used to connect a computer to your network. This is to ensure that only allowed computers is connected to your network.

If your using a wired router, check your router configuration if there is an ACL(Access Control List) settings. Set first static IP addressing in your computers then enlist the IP addresses of your computers in your network, and turn off DHCP mode in your router. Now only IP addresses in the ACL settings will be allowed to your network.

I have a new wireless router and the set up cd cant find my router even tho i can access the internet through a wire


if you have a wireless router that has some lan ports.. there is no problem..
  1. You should connect an ethernet cable from wall jack directly into the WAN port on your router/access point.
  2. We recommend that you have some kind of encryption enabled- at least WEP, and preferably WPA or WPA2 which are far more secure than WEP.
  3. We also recommend (for increased security) that you enable MAC filtering. This feature allows you to identify which wireless cards the router will "speak" to, and it can specify that your router ignore all other ethernet cards. This ensures that only computers you approve of can use your access point. You can find your MAC address by clicking Start -> Run, typing "cmd", clicking "Ok", and then typing "ipconfig /all" in the console window that pops up. Your MAC address is listed next to Physical Address. If you have more than one network adapter, such as an ethernet and wireless, you probably have more than one MAC address. Make sure to use the one from the wireless adapter.
then:
  • Open Internet Explorer (with the computer connected to the Router)
  • Enter 192.168.1.1 into the Address Bar, push Enter
  • Leave the User Name field blank
  • Under the password field enter “admin
  • Click “OK
some routers have a quick set up... try that firts.. then.. you could get to make your connection a bit secure... by changing the password.. its really simple.. just tour around the options.. and if you need help, just post your problems
