Why can't authenticate my WiFi connection? ubuntu 10.10

I switched to the b43xx (lp-phy) driver, as opposed to the broadcom STA driver which I previously had. I have dell 8312b/g lp-phy(mini) wireless card.

I have the wireless detection, but when I attempt to connect to Fios WiFi it continuously asks for my WEP (I have the correct WEP and I have typed it in correctly) and fails to connect.

I've read about the driver and firmware on linuxwireless and kernel.wireless. org. (lspci -nnk output) (iwconfig output - this printed while trying to access the network)

Why is this happening? How can I fix this?
