I have a wireless network connection, and I was trying to connect my Nintendo DS to the network for Mario Kart. I got to the step where you enter your WEP code. I don't know it, so I tried to change it. Unfortunately, now I can't connect to the internet on my computer. It connects to the network, but not the internet. I'm typing this from a different computer.

I've tried restarting the network and the computer, but it didn't fix the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Reset the router to factory default then set it up again and set a new WEP key. Then write it down.

I don't want to risk screwing up anyone else's internet. I found my WEP code, but it is 26 characters long, and windows won't accept a code that length. I know that it is correct, because I got it off of my Comcast setup page.
