Hi, I am trying to connect a second laptop to my BT wireless box, I keep typing in the correct wep. key but it keeps telling me it is wrong and it isnt ? The laptop I am trying to connect is XP and my first laptop which I am using now is a Vista.....Thanks

Is the XP laptop set to use WEP encryption, if its trying to use for example WPA.. then that would return a "password is wrong error" due to the difference in cipher.

Jt may be the modem in the laptop will not work with PSK encryption I got a Toshiba from Curry's but took it back after a week trying and got my Money back. It would work with Wep if I changed the Router to Wep
