WEP Key Generator

To generate a random WEP key, select the bit key length to generate and press the corresponding button; the ASCII or HEX key can then be copied to your clipboard manually or via the copy to clipboard button to the right of the generated key text field.

You can also generate a custom WEP key based on your own pass phrase or other input.

A good primer on WEP key setup and terms is located here.


- If your product vendor requests 40-bit keys, use the 64-bit key
- If your product vendor requests 104-bit keys, use the 128-bit key
- Apple users can enter HEX keys into their AirPort setup by prefixing the generated string with a"$" symbol
(i.e. if the generated HEX code is 6b5e454532 then you would enter $6b5e454532 into your configuration)
