trouble connecting laptop to wireless gateway router

I have a motorola wireless gateway router sbg900. My desktop has a netgear wg111 wireless access point. With assistance from my cable provider (telstra bigpond) I have the desktop going ok with the router using WEP connection with a set key. When I try to connect the COMPAQ 2566AP laptop it tells me that it can see the network named (Motorola43fs) but I can never get it to actually connect to it. To make sure both network name and key are identical I cut and paste both. I am running XP pro with service pack 2.

Any suggestions please?????

Disable WEP and see if you can get it to connect that way. After you get a connection that actually works, then start adding security...
