i just reconfigured my router making WEP mandatory, or enabling security as i like to call it...however, when i tried to reconnect, i entered the WEP key and linked up with the router, but not the internet...i have and error msg that says limited or no connectivity and it seems to stall when renewing IP address...i have reset/unplugged the router and modem several times to no avail...and i cannot seem to get back to to undo whatever the hell is was that i did!!! what can i do now???

Sounds like that is a really old router

okay so i found a wire and got back to the router setup page...but then what, i hit reset on the router and nothing seemed to happen. then i thought i'd enter the ip/default gateway manually and that seemed to connect me...but i wasn't working im on a different network and im not sure what to do!

There is a small hole on the back of these routers you can use to reset to factory default settings (putting it back to the way it was). Usually you use a paper clip or something, hold the button inside the hole down while unplugging it, keep holding the button down, wait a few seconds, plug power back in and 2-3 seconds later release the reset button. Give that a try, it cannot hurt. Otherwise if you can log into the router there may be option inside there to "Restore router to factory default". Once you do all this, unplug modem and router, plug in modem, wait a minute or 2, then plug in router, wait another minute or 2 and give it a try.

johnstod with that old of a router you won't be able to secure your wireless. Wep isn't secure at all and last I heard wpa had been hacked.

Time to consider a new wireless router. Been real pleased with my netgear dual band wireless router expecially with the dual band usb wireless nic.
