    no connecting to wifi after making network connection wep

    When I was at someone's house I was trying to get online but her network didn't appear on my list moreover she had a different network that showed up that she said I should use. It asked for a username and password so she had me go into network and sharing center and create a profile for it that let me go online. Now i am at another store and I cannot easily get online. When I connect to WiFi my pages don't load. Is there something I have to remove in that setting I changed to use the wep internet? Posted from my phone cuz I can't view the internet on my pc.

    You need to change the WIFI security from Wep to WPA2 or WPA2 PSK.

    You should not have to change anything when connecting to a new network. Really with your "friend" suggesting to connect to Rogue network that someone suggests. Is just asking for problems.
