WEP is for encrypting your wireless signal so no one has access to it. The router needs the laptop to have the correct WEP key in order for it to connect to the wireless signal. WEP can be turned on or off through the router's software, and somewhere in there you'll also find the key that you need to give to the laptop. It's usually a long annoying number.
How you access the router depends on what router it is. There is also usually a reset button so you can set the router back to the default settings. For example, if you changed the password for the router when it was originally set up, and now you don't know what it is, the reset button will clear your password and all the other information in it, and set it back to the manufacturer's default password. You might not want to do that if there's other things that you don't know how to set -- for example, you might need to enter some information about connecting to your ISP (depending on what kind of router we're talking about).
If you have the instructions that came with the router, that would be the best place to start. It will tell you what the default settings are, and how to access the router. There are sometimes blank spaces where you can write down things that you've modified, like the password. If someone else set this up for you, perhaps they filled in the blanks so you can get back into the router.
I don't know what hardware or software people you've talked to, but it seems that if you can't figure out how to access the router's software, you need to talk to the router people (the manufacturer or perhaps the ISP if you got it from them and it's also your DSL or Cable router) in order to get set up. The people who made the wireless card on the laptop can help you with their product, but they probably aren't going to know a whole lot about the router.

Testimonial: "thanks, very helful comments "
if it flashes orange it is trying to connect and detect the internet, if you are connected to your wireless router but no internet check the security keys on the router and the laptop if they are the same, I guess you get the error limited connectivity, and if possible check for programs that could cause your wireless to not get the internet but get connected to the router, check for network magic uninstall the program from your system restart the computer try connecting again.
worst case that can happen is you can try uninstalling the wireless drivers and reinstalling it if the wireless devices gets an error during installation of the driver then you will need to replace your wireless card in your laptop, orange flashing in router meaning it does not detect internet from the modem ^_^
