Default Wireless networking stopped working

I was just surfing the net until my wireless networking stopped working all of the sudden. It keeps on getting connection and losing it every second. I didnt do or change any of the settings. What happened?

You have to set up WEP on your base station otherwise any old fool can reconfigure it remotely with their 802b card, and lock you out. or it could be household machinery like the microwave or DEC phone etc.

The WEP is encription for all you data that transfer through the air also it will make it harder for someone to see you data as it 128bit encription so i dont think any little hacker kid would get through that, the WEP set up works by a passpharse on eash computer you can set it up in the options. I had the same problem with my Wireless LAN it just stoped working hwat a night mare i set it all up again and had major problems the most anying network ever to make then i was getting Blue screen errors from the wireless LAN from driver errors AHHHHHHHHHH i dumped the lot.
