Problem with Vista connection to wireless network

The customer has a small office with a couple of XP laptops that both connect easily to his wireless router, which is set up with a 10-digit WEP key.  No problem.

Now they also have a Vista laptop that they want to connect.  I can see the SSID with no problem, but every time I try to connect, it tells me I have to enter additional information, and then goes on to require a login name, password, and domain name--as though I were trying to tie into a domain-based network--which we definitely are NOT trying to do.  It never asked me for the WEP key like I had to do with the XP-based laptops.

Where is this coming from?  How can I connect this Vista laptop to the router using the WEP key like normal?  TIA

Go to network connection and sharing, click manage wireless networks, then add the "profile" with the ssid and wep key.
