  1. Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
    Wireless_public2

    If the Home page does not open, check to make sure that you have no software firewalls blocking network access.

  2. Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  3. Click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel (Status at a Glance) under the Wireless Settings heading.
  4. Change your wireless settings and use the following information if you want to change to a custom WEP key.

    64-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 10 characters in length. (For example,NNN-NN-NNNN is a valid string of 10 characters for 64-bit encryption.)

    128-bit hexadecimal keys are exactly 26 characters in length. (For example, 456FBCDF123400144445271730 is a valid string of 26 characters for 128-bit encryption.)

    64-bit ASCII keys are exactly 5 characters in length. (For example, GMODE is a valid string of 5 characters for 64-bit encryption)

    128-bit ASCII keys are exactly 13 characters in length (For example, 2008SUNSSWIN1 is a valid string of 13 characters for 128-bit encryption.)
