    Hi all.

    I recently came into possession of a laptop a family member used to have. I've decided to format it for my own use.

    My question is how do I go about creating a wireless connection from an already existing wireless network? Would I just follow the Network Wizard? When it asks me to enter a WEP code, can I enter the one that already exists? Other people in my home also use the wireless network and I don't want to do anything that would change any settings to make them have to change their setup.

    Also, since I've never really dealt with a wireless connection, is there anything I need to know/do before creating one? This laptop was already able to connect wirelessly before I was given it.

    Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
