    on the router you are trying to connect to
    you will need to loginto that device and goto the wireless section and it will tell you the SSID and the WEP Key code

    the SSID is the name of the wireless signal that is broadcasting.

    post back the make and model of your router

    your router is the box your wireless internet comes from try and describe a little better exactly how you are trying to hook things up

    The wireless router is the other end of the wireless connection to your machine. Who is your Internet Service Provider? They would be the guys that send you the bills each month. :)

    I just have a usb dongal- didn't come with anything else, no external router box.

    UPDATE: I just rang my internet service provider-DODO, and apparently they say i do not even have a router because my service is wireless broadband which doesnt require one as apposed to a dsl service, if that makes sense? my plight was to connect my internet to the nintendo Wii and thats why i was after the wep key/ssid hence tring to access my router- that after all this dont have......so, problem solved!

    Thank you for all your help in trying to solve my riddle;) much appreciated!!!
