I am trying to add another laptop to my existing Netgear router. How do I do that?
Also, it is reconizing the wireless network, but is asking for a net work key or WPA/WEP?
Where do I find that information?

Consult the literature which came with your router on setting it up your router. Once in go Wireless Security and review or renew the security type and passphrase. Apply that to the new laptop's wireless user interface.

When you setup the original router, you or the technician put some key or password; if you do not remember it, you can reset the router; before to reset it, make sure that you back up any info or configuration; usually you can call to your Internet Service Provider or the router manufacturer and get help how to do that.

If you want start from zero, here the steps (very general):
1. Turn off, computers, router and modem (if the modem use battery, take them off)
2. Wait 200 seconds
3. Turn on the Modem
4. Wait 100 seconds
5. Turn on the router
6. Wait 50 seconds
7. Turn on the Computer
8. Open the IE or your browser
9. If the web page router configuration is not opened after few seconds, then open http://www.routerlogin.net or http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or check the Router Documentation.

Good luck.
