Speedtouch 576 hangs at "Acquiring Network Address" Wireless


I'd be really grateful for any advice here:

I have a Intel Centrino Fujitsu laptop with a built in wireless card. The wireless card connects to other wireless networks but not my home one.

I also know my home network works, as I am using my fujitsu laptop with

an ethernet cable. My second laptop connects via wireless to my home network fine.

When I try to connect via wireless on my fujitsu laptop to my home network, I get:

"Connecting..." and it hangs at: "Acquiring Network Address"....

I've tried disabling the firewall, restarting the wireless connection and nothing works!

I'm using AOL (UK) broadband with a Speedtouch 576 router.

Oh - I can get the laptop to connect to AOL by disabling WEP security on the router. But I don't want to have to use an unsecured network.

Can anyone help! Thanks - alex
