Question about Computers & Internet
Firstly, I'll give you this link to HP's site, but only because they have an entire page devoted to resolving your very issue. I've gotta wonder if your router is using a newer type of security, though. If it's a newer router (most Wireless 'G' onward), and you're using a newer laptop, then I'm pretty sure you need to check and see if you can change the 'type of wireless network security' encoding you're using. Instead of WEP, which is not only cumbersome, forgettable, and easily cracked, you should switch to the newer 'WPA / WPA2' personal security types. These are encrypted, not easily hacked, and best of all, easy to remember. Check into that first, but go ahead and read the page in the link up top...I noticed a 'download' from HP on the page, that might resolve your issue automatically.

The security key is the "password" used on your wireless router to allow your wifi laptop to get online. Sometimes this is a number (technically it's hexidecimal, so numbers and letters A through F) can be printed on the bottom of your router, but usually it is a password that you set when you first configured your wireless router.
I would refer to your router's manual on settings up wireless security as this is the topic you should be most interested in to resolve this issue.
Hope this helps!
