Cannot connect when wireless security is enabled

I have a linksys wrt54g ver.6 wireless router. My Dell laptop running vista can connect wirelessly to the internet just fine when I have wireless security disabled on my wrt54g router.

 

When I enable security (I tried WEP) the network connection on my laptop fails and I see this message in vista’s “Connect to a network” window:

 

"The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network"

 

Any ideas on how to fix this?   Thanks!!!

Re: Cannot connect when wireless security is enabled

Open network & sharing center ..... click manage wireless networks
Configure the wireless settings manually .....
Reboot the computer & see if it is connected to the network or not .....
