The way the WiFi card is reacting indicates a WEP Auth error.

So... Question?

Are you using "Open" or "Shared" WEP key on your WiFi settings? This needs to be "Open" even though your first inclination is "Shared" (because you think you are sharing the key.)

You should set to WEP or None, not WPA.

Double check that you are set to "Open" and not "Shared" key.

Obviously must match. WEP not WPA. Open not Shared.
