WPA & WEP are 2 completely different things. WEP is generally a 10-digit hexi-decimal code such as 12345abcde. A WPA code is generally a phrase & can be just about anything, such as i can't acces the internet on my pc.

Who setup the router & created the passcode? Every computer that accesses the internet thru that router MUST have that same passcode entered in.

You *should* be able to clear the passcode by resetting the router, but you will then have to reconfigure it again & setup a new passcode. And you will also have to reconfigure the settings on every computer that accesses the internet thru that router to the new passcode.

It is not recommended to run the router without encryption as anyone nearby would be able to piggyback on your signal. And if they were to do something really nasty, it would be traced back to your IP address.

Do you have the manual for the router?

Do you know what passcode was entered into the router? You need to enter that same passcode into your PC. Go to the following page & scroll down to "Connect your computers and devices":

There are all manner of Thompson Speedtouch devices (in all shapes and sizes). It would be best to contact help line as suggested in #8, unless you can supply the proper detail.

some other bloke...
