I'm trying to help my dad get access to his Vodafone Wireless Broadband on a dell Laptop. The laptop doesn't have wi-fi so he bought a Belkin Wireless G+ MIMO Notebook Card and I installed the software for him.
When it shows nearby connections it doesn't always show the vodafone as being strong and doesn't always keep the signal on screen, the WEP key we connect with doesn't work either.
Prior to this I tried on my own (newer) Dell laptop with wireless capabilities, to connect to the same vodafone signal and it doesn't work for me. His Desktop (XP) & new Acer laptop (Windows 7) both pick it up but I wasn't there when him and my sister installed the new broadband. Maybe the WEP key was taken down wrong.
If so, how can I confirm the key?
PS. I apologise if any manual explains this - the computer room is a mess with paperwork and manuals.
