Belkin router WEP passphrase problem

    I have a Belkin wireless router that uses a passphrase to create a 128
    bit WEP key. The problem is that it doesn't reveal the hex equivalent
    of it and my wireless card needs a hex key instead of a
    passphrase(Belkin terminology - not sure if it's a universal term).

    What do i do?

    I have a Belkin wireless router that uses a passphrase to create a 128
    Surely it must somewhere? Either that or ignore the passphrase and
    enter the wep key yourself.

    I can't see how they could have a product with a proprietary key
    generation algorithm which needs to offer a key for external use and not
    expose it?

    My F5D7230-4 shows in on the Wireless->Security page, maybe you need to
    upgrade the firmware?

    Since the Belkin doesn't reveal the 128 bit hex produced by the
    passphrase I found that I can enter the key manually instead.

    Thanks to those that replied.
