As far as I know the SSID and Wep can only be entered into the Setup
window form the cards dialog window. In this window you will also
select WEP Key hexadecim not string and then tic the use WEP option
and enter the 10 digit hex key.

You can make any number of setups for the same card, but the SSID and
WEP key will need to be changed manually in the card setup when you
insert it ictap the card icon in extras, Avi's or what ever you use.

What card are you using?

I have always let the router assign ip address and only did a manual
setup to bypass the router and connect directly to an airport card in
my laptop.

-60088 seems to be an error at connecting to the router so I would
confirm that the SSID and WEP were correctly entered.

Good luck
