I'm not sure if the key I entered was a WEP or WPA key as I have no idea what one of these is!!
Basically, when the pc was set up to the internet, the router was sent with a disc and a little card that listed the SSIP, the Network Key and the channel.
So when I tried connecting for the first time it asked me to enter the network key, which I just took from the card that came with the router.
How would I make sure my wirelss card can get an IP address?
And to add to my problems, I don't think we have a manual for the router!!
Have searched for some info online, but unable to find out how to turn off the security!
