Are you connecting to your own network? If you are, is it secure?

The error message that you are referring to, is a result of connecting to your wireless network and supplying the INCORRECT PASSWORD.

Check your password if It is case sensitive.

It just stops at connecting, then finally it give an error, 'limited or no connectivity'. I checked the password. It is the same password that I was using.

For your information, the security mode is WEP. I am using the Passphrase, which I think is the password to my network.

I tried using the password all over again and it still won't connect.

The reason why your computer is not accepting your password is because, it is incorrect. 

WEP is Wired Equivalent Privacy. It uses a 10 character key to encrypt your network. The key or the wireless password never changes. In WEP, the passphrase is only used, to generate the password. The password itself is one of the key that is being generated.

WPA or WPA2, on the other hand is WiFi Protected Access. It employs a passphrase, that changes over time. The wireless password for WP or WPA2 is  the passphrase.

You mentioned that your network is using WEP, is that right? Were you also sing the Passphrase as the password?

You didn't mention the OS.  They are right, its the WEP key.  Try deleting or removing the network from the list, then connect it manually with the correct WEP key.  If you really have the correct WEP key, then that should work.
