Question about Computers & Internet
I am trying to connect to a wireless network. The laptop is seeing the network and when I click on connect I get the window asking for the wep (it is 10 digits). There is already an eight digit password in the box so I click in the box enter the 10 digit wep, confirm it and click on connect. It won't connect and when I try again, the same process starts over again. Am I missing something. I would appreciate any help that can get me through this. Thanks
You didn't post the Make , Model of Wireless Device. Try a reset ot the Wireless device returning it to default settings and reconfigure the SSID and the Security Key. Setup the Wireless for WPA2-PSK security it's a bit more secure.

I have intalled hundreds of linksys routers, so when I heard such a problem described above, I though it would be just a system error due to the OS messed up. but with the new router WRT160N, I actually had that problem. they raised security level (especially for WEP), but the router doesn't have options for it in configuration. so, we will have to set our computers manually to make work with it.
Do manual setup by typing SSID, Security mode, Key.... and make sure to disable 802.11x security.

Well the first thing is that you have WRT160N router. This router has issues with the firmware. So first you will need to upgrade the firmware of the router. Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's web site. Connect your computer to the router. Open the router page. Click on Administration tab. Just below administration you will find firmware upgrade subtab. If you click on it, you will find the browse option. Browse the file that you have downloaded from the web site. and Click upgrade.
For WII, you will also need to change the MTU to 1365 and open some port numbers on the router.

Tips for a great answer:
Sony's Sony Vaio laptop features built-in wireless LAN adapter that allows the computer to connect to any wireless access point.
If you want to adjust the device's WiFi settings, you must use the proprietary software and hardware that comes preinstalled on the laptop and the Internet connection options that come with Windows.
Once you have all of the correct settings enabled, you can have your laptop connected to a wireless access point without any additional applications.
Enabling Wi-Fi with Wireless LAN Switch
Before you can connect to a wireless network or change any of your Wi-Fi settings, you must first enable the computer's Wi-Fi feature with the wireless LAN switch.
This switch is located directly below the laptop's screen and is labeled "Wireless." Once you have located the switch, slide it into the "ON" position.
Enable Wi-Fi in Vaio Smart Network
Once Wi-Fi has been enabled with the wireless LAN switch, you must enable Wi-Fi using the laptop's proprietary wireless connection software, "Vaio Smart Network."
To access this program, click the "Start" button in the computer's task bar and select the "All Programs" option.
Select the "VAIO Smart Network" option to launch the program.
Alternatively, you can click the VAIO Smart Network icon in the computer's task bar to launch the program.
This icon is in the shape of a green button with two white arrows on it.
Once in the application, click the switch to the right of the "Wi-Fi" heading to toggle it to the "ON" position.
Windows Connect to a Network
With Wi-Fi enabled, you must connect to the wireless network using the
"Connect to a Network" feature that is a part of the Windows operating system.
Click the network icon in the computer's task bar to bring up a list of the available wireless networks.
This icon is in the shape of a computer and an Ethernet cable if you not connected to a network.
If you are connected to a network, it is in the shape of signal bars.
Select the desired wireless network from the menu that appears and select the "Connect" option.
Enter the networks password if necessary and connect to the network.
Network and Sharing Center
If the wireless network that you want to connect to does not appear in the "Connect to a Network" window, you must connect to the network manually.
Click the network icon in the computer's task bar and select the "Open Network and Sharing Center" option.
Click the "Manage wireless networks" option, followed by the "Add" option.
Click the "Manually create a network profile" option and type the network's information in the spaces provided.
Place a checkmark next to the "Start this connection automatically" option and click the "Next" button to connect to the network.
Hope this helps
