Wireless won't connect with security

I'm having some trouble connecting my laptop wirelessly. In fact it's been wired for some time now because with everything I've tried, it just doesn't seem to want to connect with security enabled. I use a WEP key. I went into the router settings and selected no security, and voila, the wireless works as normal. I've tried all the security options and none of them allow the wireless to connect.

Any ideas?

Much appreciated.

Almost always caused by typing the wrong key. Set it to something simple initially, and you may find that the longer the key, the more opportunity to type it in wrong there is.
