    the numbers is the passcode that you set up, encrypted. Depending on the type of password you set up (64 bit, 128 bit encryption... etc.) those "numbers" are your password. So, if you get another laptop, or someone else to use your WiFi... you have to give them those numbers in order to access... not the password you set up. It keeps things easier to secure.

    BTW -- it should be numbers AND letters... right? i.e. -

    EDIT: Okay... so after reading my post I made no sense. Basically it works like this... it asks you for a password, you give it one that you choose, then it converts the password into WEP keys... essentially, every word can have a different key. When wanting to access your WiFi, you want to provide the WEP key, not the word that you supplied. Okay? Okay.

    I don't know why, but I installed Vista on my Macbook Pro, and it OWNS.

    Choose a WEP passcode, which will create a WEP key. The numerical value, is the actual key value, but if you put in the passcode word, it should convert that into the WEP key. If the passcode doesn't work, you can take that actual WEP key and use that instead of the passcode.
    And thats how you get ants!

    OK I got WEP set up and I am secure! I had no security for the last few years

    I also picket up a logitech wireless notebook mouse for $30 with a $20 rebate from Circuit City. The 2 gigs of memory was shipped today and should arrive Friday. It'll be sereamin then! This is so much easier with a mouse.

    The memory arrived today. I managed to pull out the old one and put in the two new ones. Now I'm crankin 2 gigs of memory. It's easy to see that everything is loading and running way faster. This is nicer than my home machine now!
