To start off with, WEP is very insecure to begin with and if thats the security protocal you want to install i wouldnt waste your time. If you have the choice of WPA with a 63 bit key, As WPA is alot harder to crack and chances are your nieghbors arent going to even try to break into it

I agree. WPA is the way to go, also you'll find it easier and more reliable when connecting than with WEP. Mostly because you can set a familiar PSK rather than trying to remember a HEX values that can be easy to miss enter resulting in the problems your are having.
