The hotels I have stayed in are open access wireless. Basically anyone has access whether they are guests or not. The hotels generally have some sort of internet mgmt that throws out some sort of advertisement before allowing you to get on the internet. Right click the wireless icon and view available networks, you might not even be on the motel's network.

I cannot connect to the internet on wireless on my Dell precision M50. When I enter the WEP key I get the following message - 'The network password needs to be 40bits or 104bits depending on your network...


You are trying to connect to a wireless network that has a password (referred to as protection).

Dont worry about the "bits" or the network configuration parts. - thats all overkill.

The long and short of it is that you need a password to log onto your router.

It will either be 5, 10, 13, or 26 characters in length.

If you do not have the password, you can post the version of the router (model number and brand) up here, and someone can help you reset it so that you can put the password into your computer.

First I would check to make sure the "WEP" key is the right number of characters. 5-or-10-or-13-or-26

Would like to change my wep number


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! A WEP key is a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks. WEP keys allow a group of devices on a local network (such as a home network) to exchange encoded messages with each other while hiding the contents of the messages from easy viewing by outsiders. For you to be able to change the WEP key, please follow the instructions below.

1. Open up a browser.

2. Type 192.168.1.1

3. Type admin as the username and admin as the password ( if admin is not accepted as the password,try to use password as the password )

4. Click on Wireless Connection Tab.

5. Click on Basic Wireless Security Settings.

6. Scroll don on the page and you will see there the WEP key option.

7. Type your preferred WEP key which consist of 10 characters, 0-9 and A-F only.

8. Click Save Settings.

Hope this information will help. Thank you for using FixYa!

Setting secured wireless connection


You can enable WEP on your router.

In the address bar of your browser, type 192.168.0.1 to access the setup page of the Dlink router.

By default the username is admin and leave the password blank.

On the Setup page, go to Wireless.

Security Mode should be WEP then click Next.

You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer.

Save the settings.

I hope this helps!

Can't connect with microsoft MN-510 using WPA


This means that you have to enter the network key into your computer in order to connect to the network,
If you enter the password as hexadecimal characters, you must type exactly 10 characters (5 bytes) for a 40-bit key (valid characters are 0-9 and a-f), or exactly 26 characters (13 bytes) for a 104-bit key.
If you typed any number of characters other than 10 or 26, or any character that is not a hexadecimal digit, this is interpreted as ascii string.
In this mode, each character is a byte by itself.
So, valid length of the string in this case is either 5 or 13 characters.
If this condition is not met, the string can't be accepted as a valid password.
Please check carefully what you type. (Letter O instead if zero, or small L instead of 1 etc.)

If you don't know the key, you have to connect to the router via a cable and copy the key from there - or ask your Dad to give you the information. He will have it, because he has a working connection.

If you have any more questions or this is not clear ot you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
