      WEP laptop not connecting to sky router

      Hi all,
      bit of a newbie on setting up my network at home. sky installed my router to my computer (which is running by wireless). everything is fine with that. i want to connect my sony vaio laptop to the network, which has a built in wireless card.

      when i try to access the network it can see that a wireless network is available (SKY*****) but i cant access it as my encryption on the laptop is WEP and not WPA-***. it asks for a 64bit or 128bit key when the only network key i have is the one sky gave me when they installed it

      Is there a way of connecting my laptop to my network without costing some money to the laptop, ie a new wireless card (if you can get one for the vaio)

      please help!!!

      thank you

      adam
