The Firewall.cx Wireless LAN Key Generator will allow the generation of a WEP or WPA ASCII based encryption key and will provide the equivalent HEX or ASCII string so it can be inserted directly into a Cisco Access Point configuration.
As many engineers know, it is a common problem that when configuring a WEP encryption key in a Cisco Access Point, the IOS will not allow the input of the actual ASCII key, but instead requires the HEX equivalent. With our WLAN Key generator, simply insert your desired pass phrase and it will generate the necessary HEX value encryption key that needs to be used in the CLI or Web-Based configuration of the Cisco Access Point.
The Wireless LAN Key Generator allows for quick and valid WEP/WPA key generation.
You can use the Random WEP/WPA Key Generator
to generate a random WEP or WPA key. Simply choose the desired key length using the drop-down menu, and one will be generated for you.
The WEP/WPA Key Generator supports 64bit
& 256bit WEP keys
, and 160bit
, 504bit WPA/WPA2 keys
for maximum security.
Alternatively, if you require to generate a key based on a custom passphrase (most cases), you can use the Custom WEP/WPA Key Generator
. Just enter your password phrase into the Custom WEP/WPA Key Generator
text fields, and its HEX equivalent will be generated automatically. You can also insert the HEX Value and the system will reveal the actual ASCII value - handy if you want to discover what password phrase has been used for the encryption.

Notes: WEP encryption uses 24 bit "Initilization Vector" in addition to the "secret key". Therefore, 40 bit WEP can be refered to as 64 bit WEP, and 104 bit can be refered to as 128 bit, depending on whether the "initialization vector" is counted or not.
