Re: WEP key

The wep key is defined in the router service menu. If you can't find the IP-address to use (something like in the documentation, it's the gateway shown in ipconfig.
And we really don't advise using an unsecured connection for your second router. That's inviting others to use or mis-use it.

And, sorry, I don't have the manual that came with the e-readers you bought. And you can search the Internet just as well as I can, I think.

I've tried several time to connect my yahoo e-mail addy and it keeps telling me that my password is incorrect. I know it's not. Then I try to connect to my home wifi and it won't let me. Before I take this back for a refund am I doing somethin wrong?
