Wirless router my pc and laptop were wirless using a 3 com router, everything worked great until some idiot told me set a WEP password. I did this but then my ps3, laptop etc could not connect wirless anymore. The message i got on my laptop was " you only have limited access to the internet".

The last thing you want to do is get rid of the password - operating an unsecured WiFi network can be very hazardous to your privacy & finances! You need to set the WEP password in the PC's. If you install the 3Com router software and use that to set things up, it will guide you through doing the job.

Also, it's better to use WPA encryption rather than WEP which is now regarded as insecure and little better than nothing at all. If you can get it working OK on WEP, it'd be easy enough to change it to WPA in the router & then change the setup on the PC's.

Unless you live in the back of beyond, this really is necessary I'm afraid :{
