When You click on show all characters you simply have to type in the pass phrase you selected when you set up your router. If you forgot what you used go back and reset your router and set up the wep again and use something you will not forget. I use my phone number. Hope this helps get you up and running. If you need more help just ask. geokohler@gmail.com Send me your number and I will call you for free, I do this for a hobby so there will be no charge for my help. Let me know if you need me,
George
Ps. WEP encryption is not very secure, there is a program called netstumbler that can break in in less then 2 minutes. You might want to use the stronger encryption if you want to keep people off your bandwidth!

Awus036h have a signal but cant connect


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

I have just purchased a DIR-412 router, we have two computers but can only get one up on the internet. I tried to set up with instruction that send me to this site can go no further. BD


Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

I want to set up my LINKSYS network adapter and my laptop asks for the pin number? where is the pin number?


When youclick Refresh network list, then Choose yourwireless network and then click Connect to your secured WirelessNetwork, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.

Can't find my WEP or Passphrase key. Please help!


The WEP or Passphrase encryption key is in the router's wireless settings.
To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the USB wireless card in the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/computers can communicate with your wireless router.

Can't connect ae1000 to a WEP encrypted bg access point


To connect to a WEP or any encrypted site, you will need to know and supply to your network connection:
  • the SSID (especially if the ID is not being broadcast as an additional safety feature).
  • the exact Encryption Key (normally entered in Hex format).
  • You need to exactly specify the security type (Open, Shared, WPA or WPA2) used for your wireless WEP connection as define on the access point wireless modem/router.
Hope it helps.

How do i find wep key from desktop so i can set up wireless for xbox 360


The WEP encryprion key is in your router's wireless setting.
I suggest you use WPA or WPA2 encryption instead of WEP. WPA is a later and much stronger encryption.

I have a WBR1310 router. My encryption key is 63


The dotted characters are designed to not allow anyone to infer the real password. So the number of characters shown is normally defaulted (8, in your case). Nothing to worry about here, since everything seems to be working, right?
Just my 2 cents... Carlos
