The router has to be manually configured in the gui page within it to allow remote wireless access point. This is not done by default as a security feture on routers. The way to find out the ip address of the router to set up a wireless access point or remote configuration is to go on your machine that has active working internet and click start, all programs, accessories, right click comand prompt, select run as administrator, confirm, then once in comand prompt admin, typ in ipconfig /all, then look for default gateway in the first list shown this is the ip of your router. Hope this helps.
Your WEP key, assuming it hasn't been changed since you got your wireless router, should be printed on a label on the router itself along with the router SSID that identifies your network when you see it in the list of available wireless networks to connect to.
If the key has been changed, then you would need to access the Admin web interface of the router and sign in to that in order to check what the current security settings are configured as.
The Admin web address is normally the same as your default gateway address and DHCP server address as shown when you open a Command prompt window and type ipconfig /all
IF you want to get the WEP key for the wireless for the new laptop, you need to access the computer that is currently connected to it. then you need to co go command prompt by click on start > type in the start search box > cmd > then command prompt will come up > now you need to type 'ipconfig' and you need to get the numbers for default gateway.
Next is you need to open Internet Explorer, then type in the default gateway on the address box. And you will be shown the interface of the router. Just look for the Wireless settings then security and you should be able to get the WEP key you're looking for.

What kind of router do you have? Generally you can connect to the router through a web interface. You can find the IP address of the router using the steps below (assuming that you're running Windows)..
1) Click Start 2) Click Run 3) Type in 'cmd' 4) Click OK 5) In the command prompt window type in 'ipconfig' 6) Hit Enter
You will then see the default gateway. Open your web browser and go to http://the.default.gateway.address (replacing the.default.gateway.address with the IP address shown from the ipconfig command). You should then be prompted for a username and password. Most routers by default have a username of 'admin' and a password of 'admin'. If your able to login with that you should have a wireless option or wireless security option where you can go to retrieve the key or at least change it.
1.check your wireless setup and see if the wireless is on. 2. Do ipconfig / all at the DOS prompt on the laptop 3. Test the router by setting up the laptop by MAC address. 4. Go into security settings ( router) an create key( WEP/WPA )etc. Don't do this step until it all work properly.
-Go to Start-> Run -type "cmd" -at the dos prompt type "ipconfig /all" -get your default gateway ip -Go to your browser like Internet explorer. -Type in that ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -That is your router setup where you can find the key or change it

1. access 1st the router's setup page
* open up a browser
* http://192.168.1.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com/
2. go to wireless settings under setup
if you have a wireless phone at home change the channel of the router, make sure they dont have same channel
3. change the mode of the router to w/c your laptop's wireless adapter support (eg. b only, g only )
4. try to change security option wpa instead of wep (make sure your laptop's adapter support it)
5. change SSID (note: if you've change the SSID
of the router, remove the profile on your computer under preferred networks
6. change your passphrase
7. Disable Advanced 108Mbps Features
8. Disable Setup Access List (it can be found in wireless settings under advance)
9. upgrade firmware of the router
* before upgrading make sure you backup the settings (go to backup under maintenance)
* if latest firmware is installed
* flush firmware (flushing it is just reinstalling even if the latest firmware is installed)
10. power cycle frequently (turn off for 10 seconds then turn it on again)
11. If all of these didnt work call your laptop manufacturer for help
12. call gearhead -> 1-888-615-3488
13. or call our technical support 1-888-netgear
