Linksys WUSB54G wireles adapter

When I enable WEP on both the router and the client PC I get the "cannot renew IP address" message.

If I DISABLE on both I don't have an problem.

Another computer is working fine through the router using WEP and a KEY and INDEX.

This problem happens when WEP is enabled.

I've double/triple checked tha KEY and INDEX.

Whenever you setup a router, first check to see if you have the latest BIOS revison for the router.
The same would apply to the card if you are having problems.  
Check to see if you have the latest software revision for the card.
I had a dlink router which would not work with 128 Bit WEP enabled, but was fine with WEP off.

Is the router you are connecting to also a Linksys?
Sometimes using a router and a card from different vendors will cause problems, especially with encription on.

If you are using the Linksys wireless software, don't.  Delete it from the Startup folder and use Windows to configure the wireless settings with WEP.  I have found that most of the time you have problems with the linksys software unless you use a passphrase to encrypt, and have a linksys router as well.
