I recently purchased a MacBook Pro - I can connect to the internet through my Airport Extreme - no problem. But I'm having problems connecting when I'm booted up in Windows. Its asking me for WEP Key...I don't know what that is - and I can't find anything in the manuals. Anyone know what I need to do?

What ed724 said, it's a type of encryption. All its asking for is the password key to connect to your router. Enter it in Windows (Network Connections) and they'll play fine.

you must have set up WEP on your Airport when you first set it up -- check to see if what the password is using the Network utility under System Preferences.
