Hello, I recently formated my laptop due to a problem I couldn't solve otherwise. I backed up all my files etc. Unfortunately I am unable to set up my internet as I have lost my WEP Key and Password. Could someone kindly explain to me in laymans language how to overcome my dilemma. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite, Router is a EchoLife HG520S Yours hopefully Dim Jim.

The usual place to find the WEP key is underneath the router, possibly near to a barcode. Did your IP give you a password? Is this on the bottom of the router along with the WEP key or in a letter you may have received from your IP? If so did you then have to change it to something more personal? If you find the original password you could reset the router back to factory settings and it should revert back to the default password.

If its connected by Cable to the router, you do not need one. If Wireless you will need to start your Browser and enter router Settings by loading the correct address for your router. it may be 192.168.1.1 then press enter key PS to setup Wireless you need to use a Ethernet Cable for first time Wireless setup
