    Could you not go into the router configuration and have a look or even change it?

    since the WEP key is the password needed to access your router, there is no (easy) way to check it from "outside".

    I have a wireless router, and in order to change the WEP key I need to either log on to the router and change the WEP from the settings there (then you need to know the IP-adress to the router AND the admin password), OR reset the router (done by pushing a small button on the router itself, and connect to it with a wire).

    not sure if that is the same for all routers tho. I have a dynalinc (or what's it called..)

    Download this

    Use it on a computer that has the wep key. Under the secrets tab (I think) it should list your wep key. Worked for me.

    If you are actually connected to the router normally you can go to http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 to see its admin pages depending on the subnet.

    I've got a talk talk wireless router and I can't seem to find the WEP key for that, I've tried typing in the IP adress into the http box and whenever I type in my username and password or just 'admin' in the password box it keeps coming up with 'Protected Object
    This object on the RomPager server is protected'... I've also tried downloading some software but that didn't work either... please help I'm such a noob.

    Press the reset button on the router, (you may need to hold it down for 30 seconds or so). This will clear all settings and allow you to log into it using the default username and password, which should be printed on the bottom of it.

    Use kismet or else just reset the key (by pluggin in a LAN cable and just connecting directly) to something else and stop using WEP, you might as well not use encryption at all if you are using that.

    Monster Bump: The act of bumping a popular actress from a 9-10/10 on the attractiveness scale down to a 3-4/10, by way off applying heavy make-up to render their appearance close to that of a known serial killer.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    Either way, its completely innecesary and highly innappropriate which was the point that needed to be addressed.
