If this is your home network, turn your Router round or over, there is usually a label attached, with this information.
It may even be in the manual you got with your router.
Cheers.

I bought both my kids one of these for christmas and I am trying to get them both up and running, but neither will show that wifi is working


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key) To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

If you are trying to connect through a router then you need to access the routers settings and change the security settings for the wireless.

You need to find out the make and model of the router and go to the makers website to find out how to get in to the settings or look in the router manual if you have it.

You will have to have a Network / Lan cable connected between your laptop and a port on the router.
Usually it just means entering an ip address in to your browser (internet explorer, Firefox ) address bar.
For example: http://192.168.2.1 or the equivalent for your router and press Enter. Then you should be able to change all the settings you need to.

Netbook detects wireless networks but has will not connect


It is only connected to the router and the router probably did not assign an IP Address to the netbook... so first try this
try resetting the router (unplug for a few minutes) next --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---next---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

from another computer, go to the routers configuration screen and make sure the status shows that it is connected to the internet. Also the routers internal LanIP address must be 192.168.1.1 for the netbook to work.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

Cant get wireless on new netbook


The info you have so far is correct. The WEP is your network's security key. It's just like the key to your front door. If you have it, you can get in. The WEP was set when your network was set up. Usually it's a 5 letter word which when encrypted comes out to 10 letters.
Dial in to your router by typing 192.168.1.1 in your browser(Internet Explorer) window. Enter the user name, "admin" & the password, "password". Go to the router security page and there you will see all the information about your network. At the bootom left of the page is the security WEP information. There are four keys encrypted from the original word. The trick is in knowing which of the 4 keys was used. I guess you'll have to try them one by one. Most usually it's key #1, so its a relief if it is. Write the keys on a piece of paper and logout.
When you boot your netbook, it will look for all available networks in your area. Your router will be broadcasting its SSID (network name). Choose your netswork & click "connect". You will be asked for a WEP and you can now type in the ten letters. The netbook will now go ahead a connect up. If it doesn't, try the next WEP key on your list.

No, it's probably because you have setup a wireless home network with security in place.

Go through the settings on your husband's notebook settings for your home network and set your Dell up the same way. You will need to know the SSID for the wireless network, security type and key to set it up.
