Re: FORGOTTEN MY WEP KEY

You can access this information by connecting to your router via Ethernet cable. I assume it is a Netgear

Then on your browser

http://192.168.0.1/

 This brings up the Netgear Smart wizard login virgin password password (should be shown on the label underside of netgear)

Now go to wireless settings the wep key will be shown if need be create another (more memorable) and reset all the computers to match.

Re: FORGOTTEN MY WEP KEY

Dear kasabian

 

If you have forgotten WEP key it is nothing as you shouldn't even use it AT ALL as it is very easy to break and almost anyone can access your network. I strongly recommend you to change security to WPA/PSK2 key as it is unbreakable at the moment.

 

To reset your router find a small hole at the back of the router and press small button inside for about 30 seconds. It will recover your router to it's default settings. Then login to config page (http://192.168.0.1) and go to wireless settings then follow all the steps in wizard. Remember to choice WPA as your security key.

 

If you still have a trouble PM me with your router model name and number and I will try to follow all steps with you.

 

Regards
