    I have a network setup with a desktop and a laptop. The router is a Netgear
    DG834 with Win XP. This works fine but when I enable WEP protection, the
    desktop (LAN connection) works but the laptop (on wi-fi) doesn't. What am I
    doing wrong, or not doing perhaps,?


    Regards and thanks in advance
