WEP Example

WEP Type: Open System
Mode: Hex
WEP Key: 64-bit
Key 1: 0000000000

Note: For WEP you can choose ASCII or HEX modes.

64bit ASCII = 5 digit ASCII key.
64bit HEX = 10 digit HEX key. (Can only use letters A~F and numbers)

128bit ASCII = 13 digit ASCII key.
128bit HEX = 26 digit HEX key. (Can only use letters A~F and numbers)

WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Example

Authentication type: WPA
PSK/EAP: PSK
Cipher Type: TKIP
Passphrase: trendnetRouter
Confirm passphrase: trendnetRouter
The key must be between 8~63 digits or 8~64 HEX characters.

Step 1 Log into the Router by entering its IP address into a browser. The default IP address is http://192.168.10.1. At the login, enter your username (admin) and password (admin).
