That message tells you that the wireless network is using a very weak encryption. You should configure the router to use WPA2 with AES encryption instead of WEP.

Is this your router at your house?

First, you should download and read the manual for your router. That way you'll understand how to change the encryption from WEP to WPA or WPA2.

Next, contact your ISP about your admin user/password for the router. Usually you can do a hard reset on the router, and that will reset your user/pass to the default values. However, I don't know if you'll lose your ADSL settings, which is why I recommend you call your ISP and ask for help.
