Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address

Not able to connect the sons Nitendo DSi to the internet. They are asking for the WEP Key but on my home hub there is only a WPA Key. BT have told me to connect to you to ask for support.


If your using WPA and your Nintendo DS only supports WEP Encryption theres no way you can connect it to the internet. WEP encryption is different from WPA.

WEP key uses hexadecimal - using characters 0-9, A-F or ASCII format. The ASCII format is easier to remember. The ASCII string is converted to HEX over the network.

Example of WEP key encryption are:

*64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (12345678FA is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (456FBCDF123400122225271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
*64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length (DMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption.)
*128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (2002HALOSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

WPA Key is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

To resolved the issue you have an option to change the WirelessSettings on your router to WEP instead of WPA since WEP is also a secured netwrok. however you need to keep in mind that if you change the encryption you need to configure all othere device connected to the router via WPA and change the settings to WEP.

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!

How do I password protect my linksys wireless n router? I have the wrt150-n and there are way too many menus to choose from when it comes to security settings and I'm not a techy. I just don't want to...


HI ,
1)Access the router’s web-based setup page.

2)When the router’s web-based setup page appears, click Wireless then Wireless Security.

3)Under Security Mode select WEP.

4)Under WEP Encryption select 64 bits 10 hex digits.

5)Type a wireless network password of your choice such as “MySecretKey,” then click Generate.

6)The result will be a string of random characters. Copy the resulting string since this will be the key to your wireless network

7) Click ``Save Settings``

Where can I find the WEP key on this router? Thanks!


If you don't have the manual, you can download it here.
Look at page 11 onwards.

1. Log on to your router:
  • type http://192.168.1.1 in the URL bar of your browser
  • default username and password: admin/admin

2. Go to Wireless -> Interface and you will find the WEP key there.

Just a note on security:

You should try NOT to use WEP, since it is not secure anymore.(Just google "hack WEP" and you will get over a million results...)
If your wireless cards a capable, try to use WPA2/PSK, which is the best protocol and the strongest encryption.
Tip: Use a random string of characters (like H98yh&VOrh... you get the idea). Save the Network key in a text document and copy it to a USB stick, so you don't have to enter it manually into your wireless computer.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Changing to a secure setting


Go into your router's configuration page (see your router's manual for how to do this, it is an address that looks something like http://192.168.1.1). In there you want to find the wireless security section and change it to WEP security.

You will then need to enter a 64 or 128 bit WEP "key". This is your password to access the wireless network and the way you enter it is you enter a 10-character string (for 64 bit) or a 26-character string (for 128 bit) that contains only the numbers 0-9 and the letters A to F.

An example of 64 bit wep key is: 5145466d52
example of a 128 bit wep key: 3c2f2339483f2537373c57775f

Once you save your settings, your router should appear as a "secured" wireless network. When you try to connect, it will ask you for the key. Enter the same key you entered into the router.

That's it! The hardest part is finding the WEP section in the router's settings.
