    The wep encryption key will be set up on your router. I would suggest asking the person that set up your wireless network what they made the wep key. If your computer is connected to the router through a cable, it will not have a wep key. If your computer is connect to the router wirelessly it will have a wep only if the router has wep enabled. Again, ask your network admin (or parent that set up the router or whatever) and they should be able to tell you what they set as the key.

    It would be much easier to change it instead of finding it. You will need to log into the router through a computer that is wired to the router (not connected wirelessly). You can change the wep key without knowing the old key, but if you do this you will need to update the new key on every single wireless device that is connected to the router in order for that device to work with the router. What type of router is it? Also, you will have to have a username and/or password to log into the router. I know how to connect to almost every major brand of router and know the default username and password for most major brands of routers so lets start with the make and model number of the router.

    First off, do not double post. A double post is replying to yourself. Use the edit button on the bottom right of your post to add additional info.

    Sencond, no problem for the help. Thats what forums like this are for.

    Third... small and silver... doesn't help much, so let me know when you find out but just guessing I would say D-Link

    Well with a DLink... the default log in steps are as follows

    1. Using a computer that is wired to the router, open Internet Explorer and in the address area type "192.168.0.1" (without the quotes)
    2. You will be prompted for a log in, use the user name of "admin" (again without the quotes) and leave the password blank.
    3. Click the wireless button on the left side of the screen.
    4. Find the WEP settings and select 64bit from the drop down and type in any 10 digit (letters and numbers only) key.
    5. Save your changes.
    6. For each wireless device that is connected to the router, enter the wep key specified in step 4.


    Now the bad news, if the person who set up the router changed the the log in password from the default (username = admin/password = blank) then you will have to obtain the log in information from the person who set up the router.

    I had a problem with my PSP working with my wireless in my house until I found out about a setting that some router have. I have a 802.11 g router that also supports 802.11 b devices. While my laptop that had a b card it could get on and worked fine, the psp would not. I had to go into the router setting and turn all the support options for 802.11 b to yes and now the PSP works great. Don't know if this will help you or not though.
