Hi there,

So you are indeed able to login to the router admin page at 192.168.0.1? Can you let me know what the model number is XXXXX your router so I can guide you through the process of figuring out the WEP key?

(in general, once you are logged into your router admin page, there should be a section there that deals with "wireless" or "wireless security", at which point there will be a subsection allowing you to apply a security type and/or password/key/keyphrase)

let me know ,thanks!

hi there, its model DIR-165, version C2. I can log on to router page but there i'm a bit confused. there is a wireless settings tab down the side which has some add device options but i still need my wep key to punch into the kids wii and psp.
Network Technician: James R, PC Technician replied 8 years ago
can you confirm that it is indeed DIR-165 and not DIR 615? thanks!

sorry 615 it is!
Network Technician: James R, PC Technician replied 8 years ago
no problem!

once you are logged in, and are in the "wireless settings" section, do you see two sections then appear on the right: "wireless network settings" and "wireless security mode"? If so, is the security mode set to "WEP" or something else?

when i'm logged in, i have tabs across the top: setup, advanced, tools, status, support. when on the "setup" tab, i have options down the left which are: internet, wireless setting, network setting. when in the "wireless setting" option, i have a list of options which are: wireless network setup wizard, add wireless device with wps, add wireless device with wps (wi-fi protected setup), and manual wireless network setup.
Network Technician: James R, PC Technician replied 8 years ago
understood -- if you click on manual wireless network setup, you should the have the option(s) to see the security mode and/or pass key -- let me know!
