Help re: wireless password

Can anyone help? I'm trying to get my daughter's wireless-enable laptop to pick up wireless rather than having cables from the router. It starts to pick up but then asks for a password for the wireless access point (it is a netgear 802.11b ME 102). My son's laptop picks uup automatically without asking for a password - can anyone help as there are no passwords included with the wireless access point and when I phoned them the call centre people didn't help. Can some kind person out there help at all. Thanks. :?: :?

Help re: wireless password

Unfortunately, Netgear has discontinued the ME102 and no longer offers a comparable product. All I can think of is you have wep set on the access point and you orginaly entered a password which the other laptop remembers. If you can look at the setting for the other laptop it may show a wep key.

The best solution is check the netgear and see if it has wep enabled then you can get the key or failing that set it back to the default factory settings.

Are you sure its the netgear asking for the password not the other pc?

If you do not have the original installation CD, you can download new firmware (if applicable) and quick configuration software for the 102 from here: http://kbserver.netgear.com/release_notes/d102853.asp

main support page for the 102: http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/ME102.asp

that should help you to reset your WEP passkey
