Ive bought a second hand netgear router and i have connected a wireless dongle but i cant find the wep key number .
Orange is the provider

Connect to the router by cable and access the router confiuration pages (see router handbook).

you can then view or change the wep key.

You would be much better to use WPA as it is more secure.
