Wep key

Specs: Windows XP

I have a ubee router, model U10C022. It has been some time since I have used it. I have hard wired it to my PC and it is active. It is also transmitting a wireless frequency. I do not know of the WEP Key because the WEP bar code sticker was removed from the side. My laptop connects with no problem because it was connected to it in the past and is still aware of the WEP Key. However, my PC is new and does not know the Key. Does anyone know how to pull the WEP Key from the Router? Thank you :-)

If you are hard wired at this time, you simply can connect to the router setup page, by using a browser and type in the ip address of the router.
Then you might have to login.
If you've never changed the default username and password, you should find this info in the routers manual. If you haven't got a routers manual, go to the manufacturers homepage and download it mostly as PDF-File.
The default login name and password depends on the router you are using.
In the routers setup, you should find the wireless settings. Here you'll also find the wireless WEP key.

Thanks for your help. I do feel like I am one step closer to completing this mission. I went ahead an entered the IP address http://192.168.0.1 for the Ubee Wireless Cable Modem Router U10C022, made by Ambit Microsystems. It brought me to the Cable Modem Information screen. However, in order to continue I am required to login using a Username & Password, which I have no knowledge of. It states the factory default Username & Password is "user". I went ahead and tried it, but failed. I accessed many websites looking for a correct default Password & Username. (cableroot, admin, etc...) None of them have worked. Do you have any suggestions on how to get past this Password & Username barricade? There must be a way. Thank you for all of your asisstance.

if user for account and user for password didn't work then they were changed when the router was setup.

There is no way past these requirments of name and password.

You would have to set the router back to defaults and then you could access using the default name and password. You would then have to resetup the router including the wep key.

Jamie Sue

have you entered user for the username and user for the password?

If yes, Wanderer is right.
You must reset the router to factory defaults and have to reconfigure all the settings to get connected to your ISP (Internet Service Provider).

I have tried the username/passwords: user, admin, cableroot. None of them worked. Like you mentioned, Time Warner must have done something to the Wireless Modem/Router so that only they could access it by passcode. It is sad that my "wireless" laptop is able to still be connected to it, yet I am not able to pull the WEP Key out of the laptop, which it uses on a daily basis to connect to the router. Someone had suggested to me to connect my own wireless router to the TW wireless router so that it would send a 2nd signal out, which I would then know the WEP Key for. Do you think this is the best route to take, minus paying TW a maintenance fee? Or do you feel there is a way to pull the WEP Key from the "wireless" laptop, since it is already familier with it? Thank you very much.

SUCCESS!!! Hey everyone... You are not going to believe what I discovered. There is a FREE software download available called "Wireless Key View Utility". Just Google for it. It pops right up. What it does is go into your computer and inform you of the WEP(s) or WPA(s) keys that are being using on your computer (past or present). That is exactly what I needed. Although it gives it to you in HEX form, no big deal. I was able to copy it down and then manually type the HEX Key in to my other computer. BINGO! My other computer is now connected to the Router. Time Warner can go fly a kite, and that is putting it mildly. LOL!!! Please share this information with everone who needs to pull their WEP/WPA from their computer when they are unable to access their router. Thank you again for your assistance.
