I just got a new mac through the post and i desperately need to set it up by tomorrow as i have hideous amounts of work to do. (I am a freelancer)

The Mac has detected the networks and wants me to enter the password. I have not set anything up my network for a long time.

I have WEP as my security mode but do not understand what my password actually is. Could someone explain to me what i have to enter, is it the WEP key or the long since forgotten passphrase?

If you can access the router via a computer that is already configured (192.168.0.1 usually is the address of the router) you should be able to change the password.

The "password" is the WEP password in the router's wireless setup. If you don't know that password, you can change it to one you know. Use ONLY the hex option for WEP passwords, not the passcode option. Also, if you change the WEP password in the router, you'll also have to change it in all the wireless workstations that connect to the router.
