Can't find my WEP key

\015 I'm trying to connect to my wireless router with my DSi but I can not find my WEP key. Where can I find it?\015

Answers :

By defaul, your WEP key is the serial number of the router, located in label in the bottom of the unit.
To find it you first have to connect to your router via a cable.
Then type in your wireless router's IP\015\012address into the address bar of your web browser.
This is usually\015\012192.168.1.1.or 192.168.0.1, but you can make sure by opening a command prompt (Win-key+R), type cmd and in the following window ipconfig. The IP address you are looking for is the one for the Default Gateway, that's your router.You may be asked for a username and password.
If you don't\015\012know what it is you will need to reset the settings on your router by holding the reset button on the back fo your router for 10 seconds.
Important!: By resetting the router to factory defaults you will erase any settings that you modified, including your WEP key!
If you have never changed your password, then look into your router's manual or go to the website of your router's manufacturer and\015\012go to their help page.
Once you have accessed your router, you can view your wireless security settings and you will\015\012find your WEP key. (Just go through the tabs for your wireless settings.)

\015\012Note: If you have to reset the configuration of your router you may have to set up the wireless security altogether again.

\015\012Note2: Your WEP key is NOT your serial number on your router, it won't work.
