Full Answer

To attempt to find the WPA key through your web browser, connect an Ethernet cable between the router and the computer. Open Internet Explorer and enter each of the following addresses until a login box appears: http://192.168.0.1, http://192.168.1.1, http://10.10.0.2, http://192.168.2.1 or http://192.168.1.254. If the username and password already have values entered, press the Enter key. Otherwise, try using various combinations of "admin," "password" or leaving a fields blank. Once the system accepts your login credentials, look for an item called Wireless Settings or Security (the exact name depends on your router). The WPA key should be shown in this section.

  • Q:

    What are the advantages of WEP versus WPA?

    A:

    WEP, short for Wired Equivalent Privacy, has the advantage of being more widely used and more backwards compatible in comparison to WPA. In September 1999, WEP became the very first Wi-Fi security standard to be ratified. From the very beginning, WEP was built to be a weak security standard as strong restrictions on cryptographic technologies were still being enforced in the U.S. when the standard first came out.
