You can get it by opening the router's setup page through IE and type http://192.168.0.1 and it will prompt you for username and password. Username is admin and password is password. You can see your WEP key under Wireless tab, then Wireless Security

SOURCE: How can I get my WEP key from the router?

You will need to "dial in" to your router. Type 192.168.1.1 into your browser (or obtain this from youir manual). Log in and locate the security section. Note the word used to generate the wep key. Also note what number key you used. Both the security word and the wep key should be visible for you to make a note of for further connections.

SOURCE: I need a WEP code for an Actiontec GT704-WG.

You MUST re-set up the Router again, login with a browser, this time copy paste WEP/WAP code into a notepad document. for use on client (Wii) now after setting up the router, check the SSID, the NAME of the WiFi Connection. Save this in router. Then on the Wii, use that written down key, to put the key into the box, this will allow access.

I have Actiontec gt704wg wireless and am trying to set up my nook. It asks for a password and i dont know it

In order to get the wifi WEP key for your network, turn over the bottom of the modem- the default WEP key is on a sticker-
Bar that, on your pc open up a web browser, type in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar- by default the user name and password are admin and password- go to the wireless tab, and basic security settings- the WEP key would be listed there

I upgraded the hard drive ram and OS on a 3 year old macbook core 2 duo. Now it won't connect to my wireless network. It will connect to wireless network at the local coffee shop. I have tried rebooting...

All you need to correct is entering in the WEP key for the wireless network- you will connect, but will be unable to browse wirelessly otherwise. The WEP key is found on the bottom of the actiontec- unless you changed it to something else- at which point you would need to log into the modem to find out your WEP key.(192.168.1.1 on a working computer in internet explorer/safari/firefox, un/pw admin, password or admin, admin; wireless settings)

I need a wep code for an Actiontec GT704-WG. Trying to setup internet connection for wii and the code that is on on the modem does not work .

here is a setup guide to help you get the wep key. Please try the following troubleshooting: Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance) Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters). If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types: WPA - PSK (TKIP) WPA - PSK (AES) WPA2 - PSK (AES)
If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering: From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model). If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings: On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run." Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.

Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek

Need to find existing WEP ID, do not want to reset my WEP ID

Flip over your ACTIONTEC and you would see there the default wep key. If you've had it personalized before, you have to open the configuration page of your modem and check for the wep key.

To go to the configuration page, open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. that is the default address for your actiontec. type in your username and password when prompted. the usual default it ADMIN for username and PASSWORD (lowercase) for password. or you could also try ADMIN (uname)-ADMIN(pword).

click on the wireless settings icon and then click on basic security settings. scroll down on the middle of the page and you will see there your wep key.

if you are unable to open the configuration page because you forgot your username and password, you can reset your modem so that it the uname and password will go back to its factory default settings (admin/password). However, if you are using pppoe connection (authentication using username and password to connect to network) you can lose your connection and you would have to configure your router. so be careful not to press the reset button at the back.

WEP code error

If you're using 64-bit WEP Key, it would usually require you to put in 10 digits from 0-9 and A-F. so if you're putting in your wep key, make sure it's using only the characters 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, A,B,C,D,E,F.
