WM 5.0 WEP problem?

We are unable to obtain an IP address via DHCP over WiFi from a Windows Mobile 5.0 device. From a laptop we can connect to the SSID and obtain a correct IP address.

It also appears that we can't pass traffic even with a static IP, so DHCP might not be the problem, but just another symptom

Signal strength is excellent, status is associated, transmit rate is 54 mbps, but ip address and subnet are both 0.0.0.0.

This is my first time to play with Windows Mobile, so don't assume I've tried anything obvious. I have spent some time googling, and also searched EE.

The device is a Symbol MC9090G. The access point is Cisco with 128 bit encryption.

Here's the associated message from the Cisco access point controller:

Decrypt errors occurred for client [MAC addy] using WEP key on 802.11b/g interface of AP [MAC addy]

Haven't been able to get anything else from it so far. It is only logging errors, so I don't know what a successful connection looks like.
