the only way to get online is to go thru something called acer enet management
The hotels I have stayed in are open access wireless. Basically anyone has access whether they are guests or not. The hotels generally have some sort of internet mgmt that throws out some sort of advertisement before allowing you to get on the internet. Right click the wireless icon and view available networks, you might not even be on the motel's network.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

Welcome to FixYa! AWEP keyis a security code used on some Wi-Fi networks. WEP keys allow a group of devices on a local network (such as a home network) to exchange encoded messages with each other while hiding the contents of the messages from easy viewing by outsiders. For you to be able to change the WEP key, please follow the instructions below.
1. Open up a browser.
2. Type 192.168.1.1
3. Type admin as the username and admin as the password ( if admin is not accepted as the password,try to use password as the password )
4. Click on Wireless Connection Tab.
5. Click on Basic Wireless Security Settings.
6. Scroll don on the page and you will see there the WEP key option.
7. Type your preferred WEP key which consist of 10 characters, 0-9 and A-F only.
8. Click Save Settings.
Hope this information will help. Thank you for using FixYa!
You can enable WEP on your router. In the address bar of your browser, type192.168.0.1to access the setup page of the Dlink router. By default the username isadmin and leave the password blank. On the Setup page, go to Wireless. Security Mode should be WEP then click Next. You can change the WEP KEY 1. Make sure you remember this because you will need to enter this on your wireless computer. Save the settings. I hope this helps!
This means that you have to enter the network key into your computer in order to connect to the network, If you enter the password as hexadecimal characters,
you must type exactly 10 characters (5 bytes) for a 40-bit key (valid characters are 0-9 and a-f),
or exactly 26 characters (13 bytes) for a 104-bit key.
If you typed any number of characters other than 10 or 26, or any
character that is not a hexadecimal digit, this is interpreted as ascii string.
In this mode, each character is a byte by itself.
So, valid length of the string in this case is either 5 or 13 characters.
If this condition is not met, the string can't be accepted as a valid password.
Please check carefully what you type. (Letter O instead if zero, or small L instead of 1 etc.)
If you don't know the key, you have to connect to the router via a cable and copy the key from there - or ask your Dad to give you the information. He will have it, because he has a working connection.
If you have any more questions or this is not clear ot you, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
if its asking for a WEP key then your wireless network is a secured one..you will need to put the same key as you had originally used while setting your wireless network..are you able to connect to the wireless from a laptop?
