WEP key for Cisco 2100


I am having a lot of trouble trying to set a WEP, or any other key. When I am visiting there is no option for log in or anything, only observe. The pages, & also time out every time. When I ping, these 3, it continuously times out too. It has been like that for some days. I have had this modem for around a year but only recently wanted to set up Wifi through a USB adapter and discovered this problem. I'm using windows 7, tried some drivers but they didn't help or weren't even compatible. PLease, can somone tell me how to get my WEP etc key so I can get this set up before Xmas?


Edit: I have so far tried every suggestion from my ISP & information posted on the internet and nothing helped

Once you are able to access the controller, then you can setup WEP:-
