Hi my work laptop is only usable at home with wireless set to wep so I have changed my encryption from wpa to wep.
I now am unable to connect my home pc to the network and still cannot connect the work laptop. Is there a foolproof
way to change to wep? My router is a netgear 934g
thanks

Have you used a Hexadecimal WEP key, because some WiFi hardware doesn't like ASCII keys?

I had exactly the same problem last week. Here is what to do. Right hand bottom pane right click view available networks, right click your router, select properties, select from the dropdown wep and then enter the hex key that you were given when you changed the router to wep and thats it your all done!
