I decided to use the mac address filtering feature of the router instead 
of a WEP. I couldn't get WEP or WAP to work for nothing. First you need 
to install a tool that handles WEP or WPA  (wpa-assistant) then pray it 
works. I finally gave up and just used physical filtering ... which has 
done a perfect job of keeping my network ... well ... my network.
