    We are not clairvoyant. Could you possible enlighten us as to what device you
    have? If it is a PCI device, please post the output of '/sbin/lspci -nn' or
    'lsusb' if it is USB.

    I couldn't post the thing because no Internet, so I think this is what you need to see

    lspci command:
    05:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)

    lspci -n command:
    05:00.0 0280: 8086: 4222 (rev 02)
    and the router is 2wire

    Yes, that was what I needed. That device supports WEP with no difficulties, thus
    you have a configuration problem.

    Are you aware that using a passphrase with WEP is highly likely to fail? There
    are something like 6 ways to convert a phrase to a WEP key and the probability
    that your AP uses the same one as Linux is quite small, particularly since
    Winblow$ and Linux do not use the same conversion. Enter your connection secret
    as the hexadecimal key and it should work.
