Default Network or WEP Key

I have Netgear installed on my computer for a couple of years now (MR814v2) and have had no problems connecting my other computer. I am now trying to have my work computer have access to my secured wireless but it keeps asking me for the network key or WEP Key. I just can't seem to locate it anywhere.

Can anyone help me.

Thanks,

I hate to sound dumb, but what should I change the encryption key to. And if so, will it affect the other computer that is already set up and is able to get to the internet wirelessly?

Thanks for your feedback.

Default Access Controls

This is two appeals for help! I wanted to ask a related question but wasn't sure how to do it.

The mores erious question is that I am using a DG834GT wireless router. I have actived the MAC access controls BUT would like to turn the controls off whilst I do something but this seems impossible.

The real reason is that I have a device with a MAC address that I want to use on two different machines BUT that sems impossible!

Question Re: Network or WEP Key

Hi

It is one device, that is a netgear USB wireless connection BUT I want to be able to connect it to two different laptops, obviously not at the same time.

If I could disable to wireles access control that would solve the problem!

Help

I don't think the MAC address for the USB device changes when it is moved between different machines, so I'm not quite sure of your problem. Both machines using the same USB device (at different times of course) will be able to gain access to the router since the MAC address transfers with the adaptor. The MAC is tied to the adaptor hardware.

Unhappy Re: Network or WEP Key

When you use the access controls on tne netgear router software, it asks for the machine and the mac address. Once it attaches a MAC address to a machine it seems to think that address is only attached to that computer.

It seems to be a bit like having to register your car to go to work BUT you can only enter with that car, it seems to be the combination that matetrs

This is using a router DG834GT. when you log on to 192.168.0.1 you gte an option called wireless settings. Then there is a setting for wireless acccess station list. Once you have set that up it seems impossible to turn it off or arrange for any station to have access!

Sorry to be such a pain
