Well, my computer recieves internet via a connection to a host computer in my home. It has always worked, I've had successful internet for years. And last night, something happened and both computers lost internet. The host computer was restarted after the router was entirely unplugged and plugged back in. Now the host computer recieves internet and my computer that recieves that connection cannot connect to it.

I've tried running the Network Setup Wizard on both computers several times, unsuccessfully. I think I MAY be able to connect, but it tells me I need to enter the WEP key. Perhaps if someone could either help me setup a connection another way OR help me to locate the host computer connection's WEP key, that'd be great.

Thanks in advance for any help.
