      Talking Noob Reformating..........need some help !!

      Hi Guys,

      Ive had a few problems with the comp, so i decided to reformat.............trouble is i cant remember how the hell i reconnect my broadband. I phoned sky alleged technical support ..................and wasted a good few quid speaking to someone who cant comprehend a word of what i am saying!

      I now hav things up and running through my ethernet lead, but cant get it going wireless. When i click on my tv screen in taskbar it says my wireless connection is dissconected, then when i click on the next icon in taskbar ( which is my inbuilt wireless connection it is coming up with a box saying SSID and below it says sky aand some numbers. Then it has a bit saying BSSID and has somemore numbers, then it says SIG that is 10, then it says C which is 9. Then encrypt wich is WEP, then authent, which it says is unknown.
      When i highlight this lot it asks me to connect. This takes me into another box where it says Authentication type that is open. Then it says my encryption is WEP, below this is a box saying WEP key number 1, which says hex, there is a box next to it where i need to put something in........................HELP??

      Sorry for the noobness guys but i havent got a clue, im sure this is really straightforward

      cheers guys!!
