    go into your router (type your router's IP, usually 192.168.0.1)

    and go into your wireless tab (on the left), and see if WEP (wireless encryption protocol) is enabled, if not, enable it, and copy down the first key, which you will need to connect any computer to it wirelessly.

    if you need more on this, my msn is [email protected]
