I did or clicked or typed the wrong thing one day and now my laptop cannot find the Internet. It says cannected to access point but not able to find Internet. I have a WEP passphrase but I can't find it! How do I find out what it is? If this is even the issue to begin with.

Okay, so you're using home wi-fi? If you lost the WEP Passphrase, you can call a place like Geek HouseCalls, they might be able to get it out. For a hefty price.

It is against the policy of BleepingComputer to provide information on methods to reset or bypass security settings. Though your question is most likely legitimate, there are others who may read this topic and use the information for less savory reasons. It is for these reasons we do not provide this type of information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a private message or an email. Thank you for your understanding.
