Hi there,

Lets see what we can do about this shall we.

The first thing to try is removing the old settings and reconnecting.

Removing the old settings:
Go to Start
Right-click on Network
Click on properties.
Down the left hand side of the Network and Sharing Center, click Manage Wireless Networks.
In the list, please select the wireless network you are having difficulty connecting to and then click remove.

Reconnecting to wireless:
Go to Start
Click Connect to.
Select the wireless network which you want to connect to.
Click Connect.
Enter your WEP key and click connect.

Does this get you connected? If not, let us know and we'll give you some more advice.

On the topic of Wireless, is their a specific reason you are using WEP as your security type?

WEP is considered insecure. If possible, I would recommend using WPA2 as an alternative.

Thank you, Masher.

Thank You!! At home I have WPA2, this problem occurred at work, where I have my personal laptop connected to my companies network. I don't know why it is WEP. As of your advice however I am going to mention the security risk to my employer. Thanks again for all the help.
