Answers :

IF you're using the Wireless\015\012 Encryption Protocol (WEP), you'll need to start by \015\012enabling it at your Wireless \015\012Access \015\012Point\015\012 (WAP) first, and how you do that will depend on the \015\012WAP \015\012in question and how it is normally configured.
\015\012When you do this, make sure you make a record of the WEP \015\012key you create as you'll need to enter this key on to each of your clients.
\015\012Once that's done, WEP is enabled through your wireless \015\012drivers in Windows,
I am certain you definitely want to make sure that \015\012your network has a WEP network key -- if the key is blank, the network is wide \015\012open.
\015\012Here's how to configure each Windows XP client: \015\012Right-click the connection in the network connecton\015\012 window and click View Available Wireless Networks to \015\012configure the connection. On the Wireless Network Connection dialog box that \015\012appears, type a key into the Network Key box, and again into the Confirm \015\012Network Key box.

good luck, hope this helps please leave rating.
