opensuse 10.2 recognises wireless card, but won't connect


I just installed opensuse 10.2 on a seperate partition on my machine. It recognizes my wireless card and is picking up my wireless signal from my router, but for some reason when I try to connect I can't get it to. I'll put in the WEP code, but it will just try to connect for about 30 seconds then kick back to the key prompt screen. Any ideas? Thanks for the input.

I've tried using Passcode and Hex key. The router I'm trying to connect top has a Windows 128 WEP encryption.
