    I have a netgear DG834 PN router set up ...working on my Desk-top
    On my lap-top I have a Sitecom Wireless Lan Adapter Utility and when setting it up , it has a strong signal , then when I connected it through Netgear getting 75% connection a page comes up
    Encryption..............64 Bit WEP
    Authentication.........Open system
    Input Method.......Alphanumeric
    Key Index............1
    How do I find out the Key confused

    usually you turn on wep and make a key yourself. you can log into the router via web browser and look at the GUI. go into the wireless page that you set up the wireless on and it should tell you the key.

    Normally the wep key is printed on the bottom of the router.

    Note that in Windows the key can be 64 bit or 128 bit (longer number) you choose in network settings.

    If not, open intenet explorer and enter the one of the following into the address bar
    One of the lines will give you access depending upon whether you are using usb or ethernet. Try each one.

    You will be asked for a user name and password

    netgear default is admin and admin or password

    Once in the router set the password to something else so others can't access your wifi
