While setting up a brand new wireless home network for someone I tried to enable WEP after successfully connecting to the router and internet, etc. On the Belkin router there was an option to generate a 128bit key based upon an entered pass phrase. I tried to do this but accidentally accepted the changes without first writing down the key
So to cut a long story short, I now cannot access the router to disable the WEP. Any suggestions as to my next step?
I have tried the reset button on the underneath of the router but without success.
My only other idea was to connect to the router using a regular LAN card and disabling the WEP that way. Is this likely to work? Was unable to test this as the PC didn't have a LAN card installed. I just want to know if this plan is viable before I make a fool of myself... again!
