2 wire modem router 1000hw

Why does windows xp ask for my wep or wpa key and because of that I am unable to connect. I set my 2 wire up at their website and know it is done right. Thanks Doug

  1. By default, WEP is enabled on most 2Wire model/routers. The WEP key is the 10 digit number in square brackets on the unit.

    Thanks for the reply--I already put that information in at the 2 wire site!! The incription key is within brackets on the bottom of the router right?

    Ive never used this ap before. So they actually have a static wep key for the box? Thanks for sharing
  5. gstefanick,
    I'm using a laptop IBM T42 with Win xp pro . I had no problem with using a usb adapter (had its own install disk) but I replaced the internal wireless adapter card because it was less power consuming. The 2 wire router I have has a website 172.16.0.1 for setup where you set it up there and I assumed thats all I needed---not cause windows kept asking for the wep key. Also I knew that the wireless card was ok because I was able to us on non secured wireless at diffrent locations.
