Network key is very case sensitive no spaces should be there even if there are spaces or a dash when you see it in the router page but when you are entering it in the laptop it should be continous,and make sure you make a note whether the alphabets are in upper or lower case..since it is case sensitive it need to be entered exactly the way it is setup in the router..

How do i find a wep key?

The WEP key is a password that is used to protect wireless routers/connection points from un-authorized access. If you are using your own router, go into the settings and look for the WEP key (which you can also change) which is what you need to enter in your game system in order for it to use the connection.

How to setup WEP on a Belkin N1 Wireless Router F5D8231-4 v5000

1. Log into the router. To do this you will need to open your web browser and enter
Note If you change the default IP address then you will need that address to log into the router. Normally it is the Gateway IP. You can check this by opening CMD via the Run command window. Once it is open then type ipconfig and hit enter.

2. Click Login in the upper right hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click submit.

3. Next you will click on the Wireless heading then Security in the left hand column.


4. Select “128-bit WEP” or “64-bit WEP” from the drop-down menu.

5. Next you can enter your WEP key manually by typing in the hex values in the space provided, or you can type a passphrase in the “PassPhrase” field and click “Generate” to create a WEP key from the passphrase. Click “Apply Changes” to finish.

Note a hexadecimal key is a mixture of numbers and letters from A–F and 0–9. 64-bit keys are 10 digits long and can be divided into five two-digit numbers. 128-bit keys are 26 digits long and can be divided into 13 two-digit numbers.

At this point you should have your WEP setup. When you connect your computer to the wireless router you will be prompt for the WEP key you just set up.

Cannot connect wifi with my iPad and Mac Bool Pro. I have put my password (WPA), but not able to connect.

Both should connect OK: first ensure that Wifi is enabled an configured for each service.

In order to connect to a Wifi service you need to know/have the correct information for each network/router you want to connect to:
  • Broadcast or SSID : Case sensitive ID.
  • Security Type : NONE, SHARED, WEP, WPA-Personal, WPA-Enterprise, WPA2-Personal or WPA2-Enterprise
  • Encrytion Type : AES or TKIP
  • Network Security Key: normally entered in Hex format (2chars pairs)
Hope it helps.

I have Samsung WEP 495 Bluetooth headset. I have lost its customer manual. I need its password for pairing it with my NOKIA Mobile handset. Please help me out. Regards and thanks in advance.

The default pass key is 0000 but before entering the key in your mobile, you'll have to enter your wep 495 into a pairing mode which you can do by pressing & holding the call button till the led gets stable.
Thanks & Regards

PSP Says WEP Key is Incorrect, But That's Untrue

It was a WPA key, not a WEP key. As there were no choices for WPA encryption in the encryption part of the connection process, I think I need to update my PSP using a USB cable.

Securing my wifi network

Hi George,

Simply open your Internet browser, in the address line, inset, then:
-> Goto TOOLS

Here you set the administrator password, note that you have to set the same password twice.

Do set some security as well, other vice your neighbor will use your network, - and that you don’t want, as you don’t know what and where he go on the internet.

On page 27 in your manual, you find the way to set the wireless settings.

On page 37 in your manual, you find a way to set MAC address settings. Thise settings allow only those MAC addresses as you put in the table.
You find your own MAC address like this:
->Start->run->write cmd and hit enter; a black DOS window open, write ipconfig /all (note the space before /all). Here you find your MAC address – note that there is two cards in your laptop, and the card you want the MAC address for is the wireless card.


plz let me know if you need furter help.

I want lock the belkin router for our house only

Ask your Internet service provider for the network IP. Go on the internet browser on the computer that has the router attached and enter that number. enter the user and pass for the router (normally the user is admin and the password is password). Open up the wireless tab and enter your wep key into the space and now the router needs a wep key to access the network.

Hope this helps,
