Ok I am horrible when it comes to wireless networking. I'm using a gateway wireless router and a gateway usb wireless network adapter. I had been connected fine for a couple of days, but my network was unsecured, so I tried to enable WEP on my network. When I did this the computer with the wireless connection stopped detecting the network all together. I even disabled WEP and windows is still not detecting the network. I changed nothing else. SSID broadcasting is still enabled. Is there anyway that I can access the network manually? I am completely retarted when it comes to wireless networks. Someone please help me

Did you make sure to set up the laptop to log back in using the WEP Key?

first you should disconnect from the network ,then configure your router for wep. reboot your computer, then connect, it should as for a wep key when you try to connect,
just enter the wep key you configured on your router.
