Help..Please?

:) I just bought my DS Lite and absolutely cannot connect to my network. after about an hour of investigating I've chalked it up to having a WPA security rather then the accepted WEP. I've also learned that WPA is much safer. I live and work at an Inn and so cannot change the network settings easily since I didn't set them up. Would WEP compromise information on the computer itself or just the network? we allow guests to connect for free and give out the passwords all day so I don't think the owner is worried *or would even notice* about anything except the info on the computer like past guests, card numbers, invoices ect.

If you advise against changing to wep from wpa (I can't change the password which is a 10 dig. number) then what would you recommend to use to connect my ds? I have a spare wireless router that belongs to me that i could rig up somehow, or I'd be willing to buy a wireless usb router. I only have a laptop which I own that has built in wireless.

The router is made by Intellinet, 300N wireless LAN brodband router. I have no idea who the Internet service provider is.
:) help before I bash my head in.
