How do I find my WEP key?

This article will answer the question 'How do I find my WEP key?'.  This is a question that is mostly done when trying to connect a laptop or other portable device, such as a handheld games console such as the Sony PSP or Nintendo DS, to a wireless network.  Many mobile (cell) phones such as the Apple iPhone, Motorola Droid, Google Nexus One, HTC Hero and Nokia X6 can also connect to wi-fi networks.   However, as this is a part of technology many people are not very familiar with, first an explanation will be given as to what a WEP key is.

What is a WEP key?

Wired equivalent Privacy or WEP for short is a special code used ensures that wireless networks are secure. Wireless networks are ways of broadcasting information using radios waves, and are often used in conjunction with a connection to the internet, enabling devices to connect to the internet without the need for wires. In the case of most homes and business the wireless network is created through use of a single router. This is generally a small box which is plugged into the phone/cable line. This router will thus act as the means of converting internet signals through a wire into wireless signals to be read by a laptop.

By making a network secure, it is possible to restrict who accesses it. This can be done for several reasons. Firstly, if a network isn't secure someone may be able to intercept the information travelling between the router and the laptop, handheld gaming device etc. This is obviously a big deal if entering in personal or financial details to online websites-in theory someone could steal all this information if it is transmitted over an unsecured network. The second main reason for wishing to secure a network is to restrict access to the network to only those devices which are authorised to. Since there is a cost for connecting to the internet, and sometimes charges for the amount it is used, it is in the interest of the person paying the bills to ensure that no unauthorised people use the connection.

WEP security is thus used to ensure the network is a secure network. Whilst there have since been other forms of encryption which are more secure than WEP, WEP is probably still the most widely used of encryption, and the one to which most devices have compatibility, including the Sony PSP and many laptops.

How do I find my WEP key?

There are two ways of finding a WEP key. The first way is to look on the router itself and on any packaging that came with it when purchased; there may be information on here. The second way is slightly more complex and so for ease of use this has been displayed in numbered stages. This has been tailored for using a Linksys router, and so there may be slight differences in the words if using a different router such as a Belkin.

Steps to find a WEP key:

1. Open a browser (the program used to access the internet). The following process worked for myself when using the Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera browsers, although I am unsure whether it will work for other browsers (eg Chrome, Safari etc).  

2. Type the following into the address bar of the browser. If using a Linksys router type in "192.168.1.1" and if using a Belkin router type "192.168.2.1". The address bar is the area where webpages are typed. It is important when typing in that there is NO http://www. before the numbers.

3. If all has gone well this should open a page that either says Linksys or Belkin.

3. There may be the need to login. When using a Linksys if you don't know what the username and password are it may still be the factory settings, and so enter in "admin" for the username and "password" for the password. If using a Belkin router, the factory settings often come with no password, so just click submit without typing in a password.

4. Click on a) "Wireless" or b) "settings".

5. Click on a) "Wireless security" or b) "wireless settings".

6. There should be a page with a WEP key listed.

7. Write it down/copy and use as you wish!

I can't believe how many people don't encrypt their wireless networks, especially in built up areas. There have been many occasions when I could have accessed the Internet on someone else's broadband connection. Could be pretty serious if there was someone interested in doing a little bit of hacking into the PC. Good tips, mine is encrypted by the way and I use a WEP option.

BristolBoy 7 years ago from Bristol Author

I agree BrianS. There are loads of people who don't encrypt their networks! I guess it is ok to have an unsecured network when living on a remote island, but aside from that it is silly! I have often picked up unsecured networks when sitting on the train, especially when in stations!

If you forget your password and have found yourself locked out of your own network, do not worry. Belkin Routers have a Master Reset button underneath the router. Press the button and hold for about 30 seconds. This will reset and disable the password function. Just simply follow the above tips to enter a fresh password. I have only used Belkin routers and do not know if other manufacturers have a reset button? You will have to browse the site of your manufacturer for this information. I recommend you do it in case you ever need to reset your password.

BristolBoy 7 years ago from Bristol Author

Thanks for the comment Sefronite. That will be very useful advice for many people I am sure! I am not sure whether there is such a reset switch on Linksys etc routers as I personally have a Belkin - but maybe another commenter will say?


RADCOMX 7 years ago from UK

Most commercial home routers have a reset button, if you press it whilst powering up the router it will reset the router to it's default factory settings.

Frank 6 years ago

I can't seem to find a single person having the same problem as me. I have accessed the "Wireless" page on my D-Link router's site and scrolled down to my WEP code however it obviously is listed in encrypted form yet all these instructions are saying "Scroll down to where your WEP code is written, copy it down and finished!". How is it I am supposed to decipher my code? Some have said elsewhere that my default WEP is printed on the bottom of my router, however I have found this is not the case. Any advice anyone could provide me would be appreciated.

Yes, It is necessary to secure you wireless network. Though wireless network makes our work easier, it is essential to take proper precautionary measures.

Eventhough the information provided on how to find your wep key does not cover all makes and routers, i still think it will be useful to most. thanks for sharing.


BristolBoy profile image

BristolBoy 6 years ago from Bristol Author

Hi save my system! I deliberately avoided all makes of routers because there are so many and so concentrated on the main ones to make it more simple for the people searching on how to find their wep key allowing them to access their wireless network. So far I haven't had any people asking for other router makes so I hope I have got the right balance between making it not to daunting for those who arent that technically minded (many people who are searching for a wep key will fall in this category) and enough information. And as I am sure you will appreciate when including information for how to find a wep key with smart phones such as the Apple iPhone it becomes even more complex and when handheld playing devices such as the Sony PSP are included the total number of potential options is almost infinite!

Hi BristolBoy, I did all that you said and I got onto the page for my Belkin router but my WEP Key was empty any suggestions?, I'm using a WPA Key at the moment so that could be why. I'm trying to get online on my sisters' Nintendo DS and it said this Access point is not supported by Nintendo because I was using WPA instead of WEP...


BristolBoy profile image

BristolBoy 6 years ago from Bristol Author

Hiddenkarl I think you are correct in there being no WEP key because you are currently using WPA encryption. Changing this to WEP should enable you to connect the Nintendo DS to the internet/network!

BristolBoy profile image

BristolBoy 6 years ago from Bristol Author

Dental Jobs using a WEP key is not imperative but it is important to have some form of encryption on your network.


Carey 6 years ago

Just an FYI, WEP is pretty much useless, it can be broken in a matter of minutes. If you want security, go with the WPA2-PSK method.


BristolBoy profile image

BristolBoy 6 years ago from Bristol Author

Carey that is a good point, although to do that you would have to be reasonably technically minded. Also some devices (in particular handheld gaming devices like the Sony PSP/Nintendo DS) only work on WEP encrypted networks!

Jessica 6 years ago

Hi, we are with Linksys and I used the 192.168.1.1 code in the broser but then a page pops up asking a Username and Password. I typed in all the combinations that you said could work, but none of them worked, so I cannot get onto the website. I don't know what else the password and username could be. I tried the Belkin code too in my browser (though I know we are with Linksys), but it comes up as Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. Any ideas? I am trying to find the WEP key so I can use my Nintendo DS, if this helps.


BristolBoy profile image

BristolBoy 6 years ago from Bristol Author

Hi Jessica. From what you mention it is not possible to get to your WEP key since there already being a password. This may have been set up by someone else who has used the network. Maybe you could ask them? Alternatively the WEP key may be on some of the information which came with your router.


Alex 6 years ago

the username and password that you told me to use "admin and "password" did not work. And I really need that WEP key but nothing is helping at all.


chan 6 years ago

hey guys, so i'm one of those idiots who didn't set up a WEP and used my router unsecured.

I just trusted my neighbors but I guess they aren't so nice.

It looks like one of my neighbors connected and made up his/her own WEP?

I'm currently using a free local wifi to post this.

I currently have the router unplugged to see whether it was just a matter of confusion with same SSID but it doesn't seem like it.

*I left mine as linksys and now it's asking for WEP

Any suggestion on what I should do?

besides posting a note on the front door of our building? haha

Bob 6 years ago

Well I can't login we forgot our password and we use a linksys pls help


peacefulparadox 6 years ago

I agree with Carey. People should not be using WEP. WEP can be cracked in 20 seconds. Should use WPA2-PSK. If your wireless router is old that it does not have WPA2, then at least switch it to WPA until you can buy a newer router. WPA2 replaces WPA. Some governments and others that need high security uses AES (which is even more secure than WPA).


Jessie10 6 years ago

hi, I have a somewhat different problem BristolBoy. Maybe you can help?

I currently have a desktop and laptop that run thru a Netgear router. I can connect the laptop via the wireless, but another (work) laptop doesn't seem to work.

I have all the MAC addresses in the access list, and I'm pointing to the same shared WEP key, but nada....when I try to connect the work laptop its asking for a 'key' and I cannot figure out which key it wants (my home laptop automatically connects without asking for a password? why does the work machine want one? Both appear to have same settings when you look at the properties on the wireless networks tab.

I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong between the two laptops and the router. The work machine is XP the others are Windows 7 if that matters?

mindoface profile image

mindoface 5 years ago from Canada

In the worst case, I think there's a reset button right BristolBoy? So if you just forgot the password to your router, there should be a little reset button somewhere on your router. Afterwards, it should be back to the default settings, which means the default username and password. I hope this helps!

Method-Man 5 years ago

My wireless is provably way to secure for my liking. I am having problems connecting my psp to the internet, as it wont detect my own wireless.

Now, I have scoured the entire internet and there is not one single site that explains how to add my psp MAC address to my Belkin rooter so it allows my psp to find it.

If any expert on this reds this, could you please explain in detail what to do, since when it comes to wireless, i don't have a clue what I'm doing.

I tried to add the connection manually, but it allways states that it can't be found.

Alternatively are there any other settings I can change that are still secure, but allows me to connect my psp?

I am not familiar with this, and as such i need a step by step guide, and not just something like: you need to allow this or that, cause that doesn't tell me anything.

BristolBoy 5 years ago from Bristol Author

Hi all, sorry I took so long to reply! Several of you have had problems connecting to networks which you have put passwords on but can no longer remember.

BristolBoy profile image

BristolBoy 5 years ago from Bristol Author

Hi Help/Guest. It may be you already have a password set up. Maybe you could press the master reset if you can't get anything else to work (normally near the bottom). However such an option may prevent you using the internet if the router was provided by your ISP so you should think very carefully before doing this.

When using the reset button on your router, it is usually necessary to hold the button in for between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the make of router.This of course means you will have to go through set up process via your computer and Ethernet cable.

I find it sad how many people still use WEP which should be obsolete 6 years ago at least. Currently it shouldn't take more than 10-30 minutes to break into such a network.

WPA and WPA2 is vulnerable only if the password is a word has has its root in a word. If its long and made up of random characters (lowercase, uppercase, numbers and punctuation symbols) it would take years to crack.
