configuration with a second AP?

I bought a wireless router that I'm using as an AP and a wireless audio adapter at the same time. I got the wireless router up and running as a AP in short order but am just now nearly 2 months later starting to setup the audio adapter. I realized as a started reading the product specs that the wireless audio adapter only supports WEP encryption and I used WPA2.

I don't want to just recycle the audio adapter as it's too late to return it. Would it make sense to setup a second AP with a cheap router using WEP and use that for the audio router? Is there a way to isolate this AP so that it doesn't compromise the security of my network?

I'm new to wireless thus my screwup and these newby questions. I welcome your insite.

I'm afraid that without WPA there is no way to properly secure your wireless network. The problem is that for the audio adapter to work it needs to have access to your PC where the music is stored. You'd only be safe to use it with less security and a separate AP if that separate LAN didn't have to connect to any of your other resources. Have you considered selling the adapter?
