          To locate your SSID follow the steps below.

          1. Launch Network and Sharing Center.
            Note From the Windows desktop navigate Start > Control Panels > View network status and tasks.
          2. Click Connect to a network.
          3. From the Wireless Network Connection section view the SSID (Network Name).
            Note The network name may vary (e.g. Verizon Wi-Fi Access, Wayport, etc.).

          To locate your wep key follow the steps below.

          1. Open Network and Sharing Center by right-clicking your connection icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

          2. Click the link of the network you're connected to. (Should say "Wireless Network Connection 'router's name here')

          3. Then click the button "Wireless Properties"

          4. Then click the Security tab

          5. It should show your Security, and Encryption type. Also there should be your password in secret bullet form. Simply click "Show characters" and you should see your wep key.


          Hope this helps!

             Is there a way to retrieve the wep key in windows xp sp3?   I don't have an option to show characters.
