    Ran into some troubles configuring my TiVo on my home network. TiVo support is telling me I need to enter my WEP key. Where can I find this information on my system?

    Your WEP Key is an encryption key for your wireless network. You would have set it when you set up your network so should know what it is?

    If you need to find it, it should be in your Keychain. Applications-->Utilities-->Keychain Access

    The WEP code is for whatever wireless device you set up. The problem is that you probably set it up with WPA which is the smart choice, but Tivo can only play on a WEP network unless you buy TiVo's own wireless. If I understand Tivo correctly, you have to downgrade your wireless encryption on your router to WEP.

    Thank you all. I found the WEP key and my TiVo is now functioning properly. Once again, problem solved! :)
