Attach a wired connection and see if it works. Then try and attach using wireless with WEP disabled. If you can in both these cases, then check WEP, use the hex key as your passkey instead of the actual passkey. Also make sure that both your access point and you laptop are B/G. If the standards don't match you won't work.
Your wireless router is prompting you for a password in order to log onto your network. If you do not remember your password, you can reset the routers' configuration by holding down the reset button on the back of the router, and you can then use the default user name and password to change the settings. HOWEVER, you will lose all of your network settings so if you have multiple devices connected via wireless,they will also have to be reset.
If you need help re-configuring your router, visit the router manufacturer's web page. There should be a tutorial to walk you through the process.
If you happen to have a Linksys wireless router, here is their page: http://www.wikihow.com/Reset-a-Linksys-Router
First of all I am interested to see the output of this on both machines: Start->Run->CMD [Enter] In the Black box type: ipconfig [Enter]
I would like to see this information if you could be so kind.
You need to check your TCP/IP Settings to make sure they are both set to DHCP which will make it receive a Dynamic IP Address. Also it should set the gateway address for you but you may need to specify the correct addresses for IP, Subnet, Gateway and DNS to ensure immediate access to the internet. Most likely you are in this range but I could be wrong: 192.168.*.* IP 255.255.255.0 Sub 192.168.*.* Gateway
DNS Depends on your ISP but you can find out the information by logging into your router for instance: http://192.168.1.1 will get you to your router if your IP one of your clients is 192.168.1.*
What you are discussing here is called a "WiFi Hotspot" and isn't platform specific for people wishing to connect (so from the point of view of people connecting to your wireless network, it doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux).
A quick google search reveals a number of vendors, including http://www.hotspotsystem.com/ who have a variety of types of software for creating wifi hotspots.
I don't know the model of your router this would be very helpful. Most routers have a reset button on the back of the router. This will reset your router back to factory default settings.This will reset the pasword to default usually "admin". You will need to set up your router all over again. Let me know the model and I can send you a link for installation of your router.
The password is a WPA Shared Key. The secret key will be shown in your routers security or advanced or network configuration page.......if you forgot the key then the best alternative will be to reset the router you could simply create a new WPA-PSK and then setup each machine again that needs wireless access to your network.
