This term translates as strange kind of talking. When English settlers came to US, the Dutch settlers were playing rope and singing. The English didn't understand the songs and so called it double Dutch. The other possibility is that the word Dutch can mean cheap. The jump rope was used all the time and eventually it would begin to wear down and the middle would break. The Dutch children then made 2 ropes out of the first rope.

Are there different types of jump roping?

There is single rope, double dutch, wheel, and long rope. Single rope is when a jumper holds their own rope and performs to music. Double dutch is with a team of 3+ people turning 2 ropes opposite to each other. Wheel jumping is where the jumpers hold one handle of their own rope and one of another jumper's rope. Long rope is done with a long rope.

Setup 64bit pass phrase on Belkin router. All wireless devices say,

Do your other devices support 64bit wep, and are you selecting that as your encryption type on each device. For example I know on my cellphone I have to specify the type of encryption that is used. You might also log into the router, just to double check the encryption type and the pass phrase (even if you are spelling it right).
