Netgear router with AMBIT Microsystems wireless card won't connect with SUSE10


I have a netgear wireless router. I can connect to it when I boot into winxp when encryption is enabled, but not with suse10. Suse will connect with encryption is off.

When I enable encryption I use WEP, I've tried shared and automatic. I am using 64 bit and I copy and paste the WEP key, I've also tried typing it.

How the heck do I set this up so I can get online wireless with encryption?

[edit]If it makes a difference I am running this on an IBM X40 Thinkpad laptop dual booting XP and SUSE10[/edit]
