I have intalled hundreds of linksys routers, so when I heard such a problem described above, I though it would be just a system error due to the OS messed up. but with the new router WRT160N, I actually had that problem. they raised security level (especially for WEP), but the router doesn't have options for it in configuration. so, we will have to set our computers manually to make work with it.
Do manual setup by typing SSID, Security mode, Key.... and make sure to disable 802.11x security.

When you made your changes did you save them before exiting? Also the reset button has a very small hole and a pen will probably not reach the button. Use a straightened paper clip or toothpick, the button is easy to push in.

When you enter a WEP key, you must completely redo the new connection on the PC, remove the adapter and start all over again as in reinstall the driver, then do the connect to network, thing. BTW, you MUST save the setting in the router, and reboot the router, and then reboot PC, and then try to establish a connection. You should also use this tip, when you generate that BIG number WAP?WEP Key, copy/paste it to a notepad document, and save as wapkey. No after saving it in router and rebooting, when you come to the Field to enter the WAP/WEP key when logging onto the Router, you can simply copy & paste back from that notepad document you saved before. Now you should be able to login, remember to save network setting too. so you don't have to enter it each time you login.
