Is your wireless device in the computer viewing the network to connect to?

That is the first step

contact your IT guy.

he'll probably tell you that you can't use the company's wi-fi for personal computer use. (assuming it's a personal computer_)

and you might need to buy a new WEP key.

i've got a few for sale.

PM me for details.

Like said before. Contact the IT guy and get the WEP key from him.

If you have the WEP key and it is still not connecting, then maybe you need to configure the wireless connection in network connections. If the Wireless Access Point is from within the Server's IP you might need to change your TCP/IP configuration. You'd have to get the IP address and DNS server address if this is the case.
