    I just setup my wireless network, and when i try to enable the WEP on the linksys setup site, I have to get the WEP key setting. I have been having trouble opening this and have talked to linksys twice and recieved new firmware and drivers through email, but still nothing.

    My question is--Is the WEP key setting something I can get from another person, or is it something that is different on every computer?

    any help will be appreciated

    The WEP key should be something specific to your network. When you enter the pass phrase in the Router Setup it should generate the WEP key from it. Once the router generates the WEP you should copy it down and reenter in the network card setup on each of the computers.

    It should be the same WEP key on all computers in your house.
