If your laptop is still asking for a key, security is still active on the router.A simple crude speed test:-

Can you log into the router by connecting via an ethernet cable.
If so, do as suggested and switch off the security (ie switch off WEP/WPA) and then try to see if you can connect wirelessly.
If so, then log back into the router and switch WPA back on and set your own key.
Make sure if you choose WPA that your wireless adapter can also do WPA otherwise you will need to choose WEP.

So can you log onto the router wirelessly, but not the internet?
Can you log onto the internet if connected via cable.
When I first got Sky, I could connect wirelessly but got no internet, I then realised I hadn't quite pushed the phone cable into the router properly!!!!!

Okay, so now connect wirelessly without WPA/WEP security and can you log onto the router as dgilbert2 says?
