as Cristiano suggested, you could try with different versions of the 
Windows XP driver. You should also make sure that the firmware of you 
access point is up to date. Are you able to connect to your access point 
while WEP is activated with another computer?

We can also see that your kernel is compiled with the CONFIG_PREEMPT 
option. You could try to compile a kernel without this option and use 
DriverLoader with this new kernel to see if there is a difference.

Please send at support at linuxant.com an example command you use to set up 
WEP on your wireless interface and the output of that command. You 
should also send us the output of the following commands after you have 
configured your WEP key :

iwlist scanning
