Just a guess, but WEP may not be supported. Try turning encryption off entirely or changing it to WPA2.

You said WEP in your first post. Try turning off encryption entirely.

Make sure you are not locking yourself out with MAC Address filtering (access control) on the router.

If you are now using MAC Address filtering simply login to the router, navigate to whatever section (wireless?, filters?, etc.) and disable it. The router user manual, available on the CD that came with the router and/or on Netgear's web site, will have more details.
