    Well, this is the Xbox section so i am not sure how much help you will get. But a few things to note would be.
    1. if you have security set up on your router then you also need to manually set all of that information up on your laptop connection in order to connect. The WEP key is part of that security.
    It will be either WEP, WAP or WAP personal.
    It will have a very long key you need to write down.
    It will also have an SSID name, something like Linksys_SES_10111
    It will also have a mode like TKIP
    If i remember correctly those are the things you need to get before you set up anything on your wireless network, And you really should use the security on the router, if you do not then anyone within range can just find your unsecure connection and use your internet.

    Even though you may not have a Linksys router, go to the learning center and read through some of the networking write ups. They may help you.
