I recently changed my security to WEP to work with my nintendo DS, but now it only allows my computer on the wireless internet. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Sorry, but I don't understand what your problem is. What do you want to do that you cannot?

Maybe he entered the WEP key incorrectly. Delete the wireless profile, scan for networks, connect and enter the key carefully.

Maybe you are using an ascii passcode instead of a HEX key; sometimes different devices translate the ascii differently.

Well my idiot brother wont take your simple instuctions, because im suggesting he uses them, so ive found a solution of my own to buy a usb wifi cable thing off of ebay so i can change the security back to WPA, hopefully that will work. I'll be should to let you know if it doesn't.
