    Exclamation WEP key for WLAN help please :)

    Right, at home i have a BT hub from which we acess the internet on the computer.
    But if i search for it with my phone it finds it, but i guess for obvious reasons it is locked to the pc. I would be able to access it if i knew the WEP key but i have absolutely no idea as to what it could be or where to find it! Would anyone have a clue as to how i can find out the key? I've tried on numerous occasions in th past but with no luck

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, and apologies in advance because i'm not sure this is the right forum

    Thanks, JayCC

    Yahoo! Answers - How do you find out my wep key for my bt home hub?

    If you have a WLAN/Wi-Fi (wireless) router that requires a WEP (encryption/decryption) key, then you get the key from whomever administers your WLAN/Wi-Fi router.

    If it is you, then you specify it using the router's admin tools (look in the router's user manual for details; they're all different).

    On the phone, you enter the key when you define a WLAN access point (menu | Tools | Settings | Connection | Access points).

    The WEP key is usually printed in the back of the router- ie the thing that your phone line plugs into then broadcasts the wireless signal to your PC or phone.

    I had the same problem and phoned BT to be told- look at the back of your router!

    Agree, on the BT Hub the WEP key is on the back. Same with the Linksys

    To find your Nokia Firmware version, key *#0000#. The V##.#.### shown is your current Firmware! Please add these details with Nokia model to your profile. This information will help others help you. Thank you.!
