How to a Find Linksys WEP Key

Save

Linksys makes a number of wireless and wired routers for network users. When you set up your network, you may choose to use a WEP security key. If you have forgotten the WEP key and aren't sure how to locate it again, use the Linksys default IP address to access the security details. This will list out the WEP encryption for you to copy down or change.

Things You'll Need

  • Internet connection
  • Open an Web browser and type "http://192.168.1.1" into the address bar. Press "Enter."

  • Enter in the username and password if you have created one. If you have never changed these settings, the username will be "admin" and the password will also be "admin." If this doesn't work, use "admin" as the username and leave the password field blank.

  • Click on the "Wireless" tab.

  • Select "Wireless Security."

  • Look under the WEP security setting. It will list the passphrase and give anywhere from 1 to 4 WEP keys that can be used.
