i have a wireless router (dsl connection). my first computer is connected to it through an ethernet cable (winxp sp2). i installed a wireless net adapter (netgear) in my second computer (win2k pro). the install is okay, but i'm having trouble setting up a secure wireless connection (wep and the like). i tried running the wireless network setup wizard (found in network and internet connections in control panel) in my first computer. i gave my network a name, enabled the wep. i opened the netgear configuration on my second computer and inputted the necessary fields, but nothing happened.

i can still connect to my first computer and access the net but there's no security. if you will check the networks tab (in the netgear configuration) you will see which network has security and which doesn't. mine says no security.

what step am i missing?

thanks a lot-

You have WEP enabled in both the router and the wireless adaptor cards? It's not clear from your posting that you have switched on WEP in the router.
And you have entered the keys in both router and cards as well?
Make/model of router and cards would useful to know.
