An Open System is used when the sender and the recipient do NOT use a WEP key for authentication. You can also choose Shared Key, which is used when the sender and recipient DO use a WEP key for authentication.

In windows wireless configuration, you also need to make sure you uncheck "this key is automatically provided for me" to be able to put in your own WEP key.
